The UNC volleyball team lost in straight sets to Boston College (13-9, 3-7 ACC) Sunday afternoon in Chestnut Hill, Mass., extending its losing streak to seven matches.
North Carolina (5-14, 1-9 ACC) has struggled all season to win, and that habit continued on a northern road trip this weekend. On Friday, the Tar Heels lost to Syracuse, 3-0. Although they were able to keep all three sets close, that effort did not translate to winning sets.
Against Boston College, the struggle to finish sets continued, and the team lost, 3-0, despite getting more blocks than the Eagles.
In the first set, the two teams exchanged points from the start and were eventually tied at 25-25. After an attack error from North Carolina and a kill from Boston College, the Eagles pulled out a 27-25 win. The Tar Heels dropped a set that they could have won and ultimately could have turned the momentum for the rest of the game.
