Wolfpack hosts Tar Heels in women's grudge match tonight

Posted by on Sun, Feb 20, 2011 at 11:58 PM

N.C. State is badly in need of a signature women’s basketball victory to help its chances of playing in the post-season.

NCSUs Bonae Holston (L) and UNCs Chay Shegog may duel in the paint again tonight.

  • NCSU's Bonae Holston (L) and UNC's Chay Shegog may duel in the paint again tonight.

And UNC needs to get headed in the right direction and could use a win in its quest for a bye in the first round of the ACC Tournament.

That will be the situation when the two old rivals clash tonight at 7 at Reynolds Coliseum in a game to be shown live on regional cable TV.

Sylvia Hatchell’s No. 13 Tar Heels (22-4, 8-3) will be clear favorites in the contest. But they have never, ever just been able to phone it in against the Wolfpack (12-5, 2-9), which will undoubtedly have a big partisan crowd in the house to help out.

The Wolfpack leads the series 50-41, falling in this season’s earlier meeting 83-76 on Jan. 14 in Chapel Hill despite 30 points from Marissa Kastanek.

State is coming off an 81-65 win at Virginia Tech on Thursday night that broke the Wolfpack’s eight-game losing streak in the ACC.

The Tar Heels haven’t played since a 78-66 home-court loss to Miami eight days ago.

The night is also scheduled to be a “green” event, a first for NCSU athletics. Beverage and food containers sold at the event will be either recyclable or compostible.
