N.C. State definitely needs a win tonight after dropping its ACC women’s basketball opener at home to Clemson.
State leads the series by a whopping 59-9, but tonight’s game — to be shown on FSN South — should be closely contested.
In an odd twist, Wake coach Mike Petersen will have either his 100th victory or 100th defeat with the program tonight.
