Heading into the NCAA Tournament final against No. 1 Maryland, the North Carolina men's lacrosse team had seen its fare share of doubters. Many thought UNC didn't deserve to be in the tournament. Few thought it could go very far if it got it. And almost no one believed they would have a shot at taking down the Terrapins in Philadelphia on Monday.
