Duke looks to stay on track against a tough opponent tonight at Cameron Indoor Stadium, while N.C. State goes looking for a surprise on the road.

Joanne P. McCallie's No. 11 Blue Devils will be looking for their 15th straight win at Cameron when they face defending Atlantic 10 champion UNC Charlotte at 7 p.m. It's "Take a Kid to the Game" Night, with one child admitted free with each paying adult.

First-year N.C. State coach Kellie Harper (pictured) will seek her first road win with the Wolfpack tonight, when she takes her team against 0-2 Old Dominion at the Constant Center in Norfolk.

State will be an underdog tonight simply because the game is on the road, but it's the type of game the Wolfpack might need to finish with a winning record and get a post-season tournament spot.
