Wolfpack, Tar Heels host Senior Night games while Duke hits the road

Posted by on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 12:45 AM

It’s the penultimate day of regular-season action for the three Triangle ACC women's basketball teams, and all of them are seriously in need of wins.

UNC and N.C. State both have big home games tonight.

Everybody plays at 7 p.m.

N.C. State (12-15, 3-9 ACC), which is on a two-game winning streak, needs four wins to get a spot in post-season play and will look for revenge on Senior Night tonight against Boston College (18-9, 5-7). The Eagles, who beat the Wolfpack 77-67 on Jan. 20 in Chestnut Hill, need to keep winning to stay on track for an NCAA Tournament bid.

No. 13 UNC (22-5, 8-4), which is on a two-game slide, will host Georgia Tech (20-8, 8-4) on Senior Night in a game that will go a long way toward determining the No. 4 seed — and a first-round bye — in the ACC Tournament. The Tar Heels lead the series 51-14, but lost to Tech 71-70 on Jan. 6 in Atlanta.

Meanwhile No. 9 Duke (24-3, 10-2) will visit Virginia (15-13, 4-8), needing to win to stay in position for the ACC’s regular-season title. For Duke, any games before the NCAA field is announced will have major meeting for its NCAA seeding, while Virginia needs an upset to boost its long-shot hopes for an NCAA bid.

Regular-season finales are on Sunday in a day of Big Four action, with State visiting Wake Forest and UNC traveling to Duke.
