It’s the annual regular-season Battle of the Sylvias, as UNC Coach Hatchell’s club travels to Boston College to take on Sylvia Crawley’s Eagles. Crawley, of course, was the center on UNC’s 1994 NCAA championship team.

The 1 p.m. game will be shown on FSN South.

Crawley’s squad boasts the ACC’s best proven center in 6-6 senior Carolyn Swords, who is leading the nation in shooting percentage at an unlikely 71.4 and has a steady sidekick in 6-4 classmate Stefanie Murphy.

UNC counters with one of the deepest teams in the country as one of its best senior classes in forward Jessica Breland and guards Italee Lucas and Cetera DeGraffenreid.
