“If this doesn’t excite the state of North Carolina, that’s pretty unfortunate,” says Courtney Banghart. In her third season with the Tar Heels, the UNC women’s basketball coach is 2-2 against NC State. On Thursday, Carolina will play its first ranked-against-ranked matchup since the 2015 NCAA Tournament. On Thursday night, No. 17 Duke takes on No. 16 Georgia Tech in Durham.
