RALEIGH, N.C. — The N.C. State men's basketball team is 16-9 overall, 7-7 in the ACC, and firmly on the NCAA tournament bubble. 

What the Wolfpack needs is a statement win against one of the ACC's best teams. It will get that opportunity at 9 p.m. Wednesday when Duke visits PNC Arena.

The Blue Devils (22-3, 12-2) are on a seven-game win streak and could take another step to an ACC regular-season title with a win over N.C. State.
