Blue Devils, Wolfpack brace for rematch
Bill Cole * Winston-Salem Journal
The ACC regular season still has a long way to go, but Duke and N.C. State will try to get their journeys moving a little faster — and a lot stronger — tonight.

The old rivals will play each other at 9 p.m. in Durham at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Each team is coping with an injured starter, but N.C. State has additional significant issues to manage in hitting the ACC road.

The Wolfpack could be without Lorenzo Brown, its junior point guard, for a second straight game because of a sprained ankle. Even if Brown plays, he likely will be slowed at least somewhat by the injury.

"We wanted to build this class with winners. A lot of people on the outside looking in are concerned about rankings and stars, and don't get me wrong, those kinds of things matter to everybody on our staff. But, I also really like recruiting winners... guys with championship teams."
