Noon, Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, Mass. (FSCR)
The ACC’s last-place Eagles have gotten at least 30 points from junior guard Olivier Hanlan four times in the past six games, including 39 against Pitt on Tuesday, but lost all six of those games. N.C. State’s defense will likely focus on Hanlan and make someone else in the BC lineup beat them. Joe Giglio

No. 15 North Carolina (17-5, 7-2) at Miami (18-10, 8-7)
2 p.m., BankUnited Center, Coral Gables (CBS)
The Tar Heels have lost five of their past seven games, and they’ll attempt to rebound from a humbling 58-46 loss against N.C. State on Tuesday. This is a difficult matchup for UNC. Miami has a deep guard rotation, all capable of breaking down a defense with penetration. Miami hasn’t been great defensively but plays at a tempo that usually keeps opposing teams from lighting up the scoreboard. Andrew Carter

7:05 p.m., Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham (ESPN)
It has been four weeks since Mike Krzyzewski surprised everyone by kicking Rasheed Sulaimon off the ACC’s second team in the standings. In the month Sulaimon has been gone, Duke has gone 8-0, with three wins over top 15 teams. The Orange, too, have gotten better since suffering a major loss – the hope of postseason play, gone when the school decided to self-impose a postseason ban amid an NCAA investigation. Laura Keeley
