Your Weekend NCAA News

Fetzer Field is very, very good to Carolina. Other tournament sites, not so much. Both the men's and women's lacrosse teams won the opening rounds of their respective tournaments, the guys 15-13 over UMBC on the strength of Billy Bitter's eight goals on his first eight shots, and the gals 15-4 over Towson. The women remain in Chapel Hill to face Notre Dame on Saturday at 1 pm, while the men move on to Annapolis to meet Duke on Sunday. The Blue Devils defeated UNC in their previous two contests, both of which were held at Kenan Stadium. In fact, UNC hasn't beaten Duke since 2004, and hasn't done so in the postseason since 1996.

(I know what you're thinking, but this won't effect the critical Carlyle Cup competition, which Carolina sewed up for the second straight year a few weeks ago.)

Both tennis teams were eliminated from their respective tournaments this weekend in the second round while the women's softball team was given a second seed and the honor of hosting a regional in Chapel Hill. The Heels will face Campbell, Thursday at 3:30, followed by Radford and Georgia. The regional is one of only two being played Thursday through Saturday, because Campbell does not play games on Sunday for religious reasons.
