Heels Must Survive And Advance Again and Again

The Tar Heels are seeded number one in the NCAA baseball tournament.

A night after sending rival NC State home, UNC finds itself in another do-or-die scenario. The Tar Heels topped the Wolfpack 7-0 on Thursday. Their reward for that victory: a date with UCLA (Friday 8pm, ESPN).

The College World Series in Omaha is a double-elimination tournament. Since UNC lost a game last weekend and UCLA is thus far perfect, the Heels need to beat the Bruins tonight and tomorrow, in order to keep going. UNC is the top seed in this event and a win tonight would give the squad 60 victories on the season. If Carolina can win back-to-back contests with UCLA it would meet either Oregon State or Mississippi State for the National Title.
