While the Noles are playing host this weekend, the Rattlers are on the way to North Carolina to take on Winston Salem State.
The Rattlers are in the midst of a 3-game winning streak, however, they have appeared sluggish on the road at times, losing nine of their first ten games away from Gaither this season.
Only two Rattlers are currently scoring in double-digits this season, Lamar Twitty has been hot recently, while L.C. Robinson is averaging 12 points per game.
Winston Salem State, not enjoying much success this season, but they do have the obvious home court advantage.
The Rams have been competing in the MEAC for the last few years, and will in fact, be eligible for MEAC championships come the 2009-2010 season.
This game will be played Saturday night.
