Duke visits State, UNC at Maryland in televised contests today

Posted by on Sun, Jan 23, 2011 at 12:06 AM

If you’re interested in seeing some high-level women’s college basketball today, either grab a dollar or grab the remote.

No. 3 Duke (18-0, 4-0 ACC), the nation’s only undefeated Division I women’s team, will visit a Triangle rival at 5 p.m. when the Blue Devils take on N.C. State (9-9, 1-3) at Reynolds Coliseum.

Meanwhile at the same time, No. 10 UNC (17-2, 3-1) will visit No. 15 Maryland (15-3, 2-2) at the Comcast Center at the exact same time.

Both games will be cablecast live nationally, with the Duke-State game on Fox Sports Net and UNC-Maryland on ESPN2.

The game in Raleigh is a rematch of last season’s ACC Tournament final, in which the favored Blue Devils held off the Cinderella Wolfpack 70-60. State leads the series 39-30.

It’s a “Pack the House” promotion, with tickets available to the public for $1. And anyone with a ticket stub from today’s 1 p.m. NCSU men’s home game with Miami gets in free.

UNC leads the series with Maryland 36-32, but lost 83-77 in their meeting in the first round of the ACC Tournament last year.

The Tar Heels will be without senior forward Jessica Breland, who underwent surgery on her left knee on Friday and is listed as day-to-day.
