Wolfpack looks to snap ACC slide, Tar Heels big favorites on the road

Posted by on Thu, Feb 10, 2011 at 12:29 AM

N.C. State needs to get things turned around quickly if it hopes to make post-season play in women’s basketball, and the Wolfpack has a chance to do that tonight.

Kellie Harper’s club (10-13, 1-7) has lost six straight ACC games as it heads into tonight’s 7 p.m. contest with Virginia (13-12, 2-7) at Reynolds Coliseum.

Meanwhile No. 13 UNC (21-3, 7-2), which stayed in the race for the regular-season title with a 62-60 win over No. 5 Duke Monday night, will also be in action when it faces Clemson (10-14, 3-6) at Littlejohn Coliseum.

NCSU has been tough at home all season, with its three conference losses all by single digits.

Virginia leads the all-time series 35-31, but the Wolfpack ousted the Cavaliers from the ACC Tournament 66-59 last season.

The Tar Heels will be heavily favored over Clemson, which is guided by first-year coach Itoro Coleman.

UNC has won 15 straight over Clemson and leads the all-time series 48-26.
