Duke, UNC to host during Women's ACC-Big Ten Challenge

Posted May 16, 2013

Duke and North Carolina will each host games during the annual Women’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge the schedule released Thursday revealed. NC State will make a trip to Evanston, Ill. to play Northwestern.

The seventh edition of the challenge will be played Dec. 4-5. All three Triangle schools drew Dec. 5 dates.

This will be the third time in school history that NC State has played Northwestern and the second time in the last three years of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The last contest occurred in the 2011 version of the Challenge with Northwestern beating the Wolfpack, 76-59. NC State is 2-4 all-time in the event but has not won since 2010.

Duke will meet Purdue for the ninth time in school history and the Blue Devils lead the all-time series 5-3. Duke won the last meeting in 2011, 64-53. Duke is 4-1 all-time in the challenge, losing to Penn State in 2007. Purdue has never won an ACC-Big Ten Challenge game, dropping all five attempts.

For UNC, they carry a 3-2 all-time record into this year’s event dropping games in 2009 and 2011. They will host Nebraska who will be participating for just the second time since joining the Big Ten last year. The Cornhuskers lost their debut to Maryland 90-71.

The ACC and Big Ten have a contract to play each other through the 2016 season. Both conferences are known to be powerhouses in terms of NCAA Tournament success. The ACC has 14 Final Four appearances and a team from the Big Ten has reached the Sweet 16 in 27 of the last 29 years.

In last year’s challenge, the ACC teams had a 7-5 record. The ACC have won five out the six challenges with a tie in 2011.
