The North Carolina volleyball team was swept, 3-0, by Miami on Sunday afternoon in Coral Gables, Fla.
The Tar Heels (10-10, 7-5 ACC) just could not hang with the Hurricanes (14-4, 8-4 ACC).
It looked pretty good early on, though. UNC fought back from five down in the first set to tie it at 14-14. But that’s when Miami started to take control. The Hurricanes went on an 8-1 run and ended up taking the first set, 25-21.
The second set was pivotal for this game, as it is in many matches. North Carolina once again found itself fighting back from a deficit, this time a 19-11 lead for the Canes. The Tar Heels cut that lead to four, but just couldn’t finish the set. Miami won the second set, 25-18.
The third set was not as close. The Tar Heels gave every this they could in the for the first half of the set, but Miami wore them down. The Hurricanes ran away with the clinching set 25-18.
