Two struggling teams will play each other today in Raleigh, each hopeful of generating a win that will deliver consistency and much-needed confidence to its season. North Carolina will visit N.C. State for a 9 p.m. game at the RBC Center. Both teams reside near the bottom of the ACC, but neither ever lacks for incentive when playing the other.

North Carolina and N.C. State will play an ACC basketball game tonight at the RBC Center. That much is guaranteed. But which version of the Tar Heels or Wolfpack will show up is anyone's guess.

North Carolina basketball finds itself in some unfamiliar places - 11th in the ACC and out of the AP's Top 25 for the first time since Jan. 2006. Not a good time to head into hostile territory, but the Tar Heels travel to Raleigh tonight looking to break a three-game losing streak.

While North Carolina State's execution has fluctuated, coach Sidney Lowe said the Wolfpack has been mostly on target with its approach during the past few weeks. So N.C. State might be inclined to hold the line for tonight's meeting with North Carolina at the RBC Center. Not so for the Tar Heels, who have been in flux and coping with a three-game losing streak.

Tonight, the Tar Heels head to the RBC Center for a rivalry showdown against N.C. State. Yet for just the fifth time in the past 44 seasons, they'll arrive in Raleigh as an unranked team, currently slotted on the 11th line in the ACC standings. "I don't think any of us expected to lose seven games already - if at all this season," freshman Travis Wear said. Yet, this is the new reality.

During his high school career, Roanoke Rapids defensive end Kareem Martin used a vast array of moves to free himself from opposing offensive linemen. Martin may have saved his best juke move for Monday. In front of a packed house in the school's media center, Martin briefly reached for the blue Duke hat on the table, then drew back and grabbed the North Carolina hat, declaring his intentions of signing a national letter of intent with the Tar Heels on Feb. 3.
