CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- This could be a huge weekend for North Carolina's Sylvia Hatchell. 

A victory over rival Duke Sunday would make it 900 career wins for the veteran Tar Heels coach. 

Hatchell said Friday that "I'd be lying if I said it didn't matter" that the milestone victory could come against the fifth-ranked Blue Devils. 

She is the winningest active women's coach in Division I with an 899-316 record in her 38th season. She's poised to join Pat Summitt and Jody Conradt in the 900-win club. Rutgers' C. Vivian Stringer is two wins behind Hatchell. 

Hatchell says the focus isn't on No. 900 but on her 11th-ranked Tar Heels (20-2, 8-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) catching first-place Duke (19-1, 9-0) in the league standings.
