College basketball North Carolina State @Duke

9 p.m. [ESPN2, chs. 54, 20]

Are there any other freshmen in the Atlantic Coast Conference besides Wolfpack center J.J. Hickson, who has been chosen Rookie of the Week three times? Hickson posted double doubles last week in a 77-74 loss to Georgia Tech and a 69-66 victory at Florida State - North Carolina State's first conference road win of the season. Junior Courtney Fells has led the Wolfpack in scoring four of the past five games. Duke's lineup includes only one player taller than 6 feet 8, but the No. 3 Blue Devils (17-1, 5-0 in ACC) keep coming up big. They overcame their largest deficit of the season, 51-42 at halftime, to defeat Maryland on Sunday night.
