Tar Heels badly in need of victory in "PinkZone" ESPN2 game at Virginia

UNC hasn't been in this situation in women's basketball in quite some time.

But the Tar Heels are probably slight underdogs in a must-win situation on the road.

Sylvia Hatchell's club (16-7, 4-5 ACC) will visit Virginia (18-6, 7-3) tonight at 7 p.m. in the Cavaliers' annual "PinkZone" game.

UNC is ranked No. 18 nationally, but with four straight losses will probably be unranked at game time. A win by Virginia would probably get the Cavaliers back into the AP Top 25 next week.

The Tar Heels, who have won 13 straight in the series, probably need to win the rest of their regular-season games to get a bye into the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament.

Cetera DeGraffenreid (pictured) is the Tar Heels' assist leader and No. 2 scorer.
