N.C. State and N.C. Central hit the hardwood in women's basketball again tonight, and both are hoping to bounce back after losses.

Kellie Harper's Wolfpack has a tough assignment, heading to No. 21 Virginia in a key ACC test two nights after a hard-fought home-court loss to archrival UNC.

Bonae Holston (pictured) is the leading scorer and rebounder for the Wolfpack, while Monica Wright leads Virginia in every major statistical category.

The Wolfpack's biggest victory of last season was a 60-54 home-court win over No. 17 Virginia.

NCCU, which beat UMES 69-60 twenty days ago in Durham, had a four-game winning streak snapped in a 64-58 loss at UNC Asheville on Friday night.

The Eagles' game is the second of a six-game road swing.
