Women's roundup: State-Carolina, Duke-Maryland on tap today

It's the penultimate weekend in ACC women's basketball, and there are two big rivalry games in the Triangle today.

The one that isn't sold out is on TV.

UNC will host N.C. State for the 90th time in its annual PinkZone game at refurbished Carmichael Arena. Tickets are not available for the 2 p.m. contest, which will be one of two sellouts in the building this season along with Duke's visit a week from today.

Italee Lucas (pictured) is the Tar Heels' leading scorer, and poured in a career-high 33 points in their 81-69 victory in the teams' first meeting Jan. 25 in Raleigh.

First-place Duke, meanwhile, will host heated rival Maryland at 1 p.m. at Cameron Indoor Stadium, looking to move to within one win of clinching the ACC regular-season title. The No. 8 Blue Devils' game with the Terps will be shown on Fox Sports South. Duke won the teams' first meeting of the season 58-57 in College Park.

Where anyone else will finish is very much up for grabs. UNC and NCSU are in a four-way tie for sixth in the conference, just one game behind fourth-place Georgia Tech which currently holds the final prospective first-round bye in the conference tournament.
