Women's roundup: Wolfpack, Heels in TV twin bill, NCCU on road



Three of the four Division I women's basketball teams in the Triangle will hit the court tonight, and two of them have televised home games.

N.C. State and Wake Forest have both had some good wins this season and both are fighting to get toward the ACC's middle to upper echelon, so the 6:30 contest between the old school Wake county rivals - back when the Deacons were actually in Wake Forest - will have a lot to say about that.

Bonae Holston (pictured) is the Wolfpack's leading scorer and rebounder.

The second half of the TV doubleheader is in Chapel Hill, where No. 14 UNC will be a huge favorite over last-place Clemson.

Traveling tonight is N.C. Central, which has won six of its last eight games and will visit a UNC Asheville team that has lost five straight. It's a game the Eagles need to win if they're going to make a run at a .500 finish.
