Kellie Harper (pictured) gets her first chance to coach against N.C. State's biggest rival tonight.

The first-year Wolfpack coach will lead her team against visiting archrival UNC at 7 p.m. at Reynolds Coliseum, in a game which will be cablecast to much of the Southeast.

Both teams picked up nice victories at home on Friday night, as the Wolfpack held off Wake Forest on an Amber White buzzer beater and the Tar Heels rallied over the final five minutes to break open a close game and dismiss Clemson comfortably.

The Tar Heels took both decisions last season, actually winning easily in Raleigh but struggling to an overtime victory at the Smith Center to get Ccoach Sylvia Hatchell her 800th career win.
