With the ACC regular-season race starting to wind down, two of the Triangle's three conference teams will be in action today.

Duke can take another step toward the conference's regular-season crown on the road today if the No. 8 Blue Devils can complete a season sweep of Virginia Tech. Northern Durham alumna Utahya Drye leads the Hokies in scoring and rebounding.

Meanwhile, N.C. State needs to win two more games to assure itself a .500 season, and gets a tough challenge at home today from Miami in its annual "Hoops 4 Hope" contest to be shown on ESPN.

It will be the only regular-season meeting of the season with the Hurricanes for State, which is led in both scoring and rebounding by Bonae Holston (pictured).

Miami is coached by Duke alumna Katie Meier.

Duke won the first meeting with the Hokies this season, 69-38 on Jan. 21 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
