In anticipation of tonight's Duke/UNC game (7pm, ESPN2, followed by TN/Vandy) Mechelle writes: UNC-Duke meeting lacking some of usual luster

There have been seasons when the Duke-North Carolina matchups are among the biggest games of the year in all of women's basketball. This year, those two contests are still biggies … but both teams enter the first of two regular-season meetings a little deflated.

Sixth-ranked Duke lost its most recent game, Thursday at Boston College. And No. 15 Carolina has lost two in a row, at home last Monday to Florida State and at Miami on Thursday.
