UNC women's lacrosse loses to James Madison, ends run at NCAA Final Four

On Feb. 10, North Carolina's season began with a double overtime loss to the team, a matchup that was as close as it could be. And on Friday — after 20 games played out since then — JMU took down UNC again, this time a 15-12 loss in the NCAA Final Four to move on to the national championship.

UNC finished the regular season with a 37-17 overall mark.
