The No. 19 UNC women’s basketball team will face its toughest test of the season Thursday night, as the Tar Heels travel to Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh to face No. 5 NC State. The Wolfpack are the back-to-back defending ACC tournament champions and earned a No. 1 seed in last season’s NCAA Tournament. However, the Tar Heels have split the season series with NC State each of the past three seasons, and earned a win in Reynolds during the 2018-19 campaign.
