Women's roundup: Duke hosts State tonight; Tar Heels in must-win game

UNC needs to get things turned back in the right direction quickly.

Duke just wants to stay on track, while N.C. State is hoping for a signature upset.

All three of the Triangle's ACC women's basketball teams are in action tonight in the Triangle, and they're typical high-stakes February games.

N.C. State's first-year coach Kellie Harper will make her first visit to Duke in the teams' only meeting of the regular season. Paced by junior guard Jasmine Thomas (pictured), the No. 8 Blue Devils lead the ACC and should be strong favorites in the 7 p.m. contest. It's Duke's annual PinkZone game, with fans encouraged to wear pink attire to support breast cancer awareness and research.

Tipoff is at the same time at Carmichael Arena when Boston College, the only team to beat Duke this season, visits No. 18 UNC. The Eagles are coached by Sylvia Crawley, who was the center on the Tar Heels' 1994 NCAA championship team. One of BC's seniors is guard Ayla Brown, the former American Idol contestant whose father Scott is the junior member of the United States Senate.
