In case you haven't heard, the North Carolina men's basketball team beat Duke Wednesday night. If you're looking for more UNC sports to follow, we've got you covered. A packed weekend is highlighted by hosting a top-10 opponent in women's basketball, the final wrestling match of the season, and a top-3 matchup in women's lacrosse. A total of six ranked Tar Heel teams are in action.
The No. 7 Tar Heels are 4-0 following a season-opening sweep against Xavier and a win against North Carolina A&T. The Tar Heels' offense has looked prolific early in the season, as it outscored Xavier 34-9 in the three-game series. This weekend's matchup with the Bulls should be a tough test for North Carolina, as South Florida just took down No. 4 Florida, 6-1. USF is 3-1.
The series begins on Friday in Chapel Hill.
Friday and Saturday, the North Carolina women's swimming team and the diving teams on both the men's and women's side will wrap up the ACC Championships. Twenty-two Tar Heel women and three men's divers will compete this weekend, and the UNC women enter ranked No. 21 in the nation. The tournament is taking place in Greensboro.
Sylvia Hatchell's squad plays host to rival N.C. State on Sunday. It's a big game for the Tar Heels, as it will be Senior Night and the last chance for UNC to earn a big win in the regular season. The Wolfpack enter the game ranked No. 9 in the country, and have only lost three times all year. One of those came at the hands of UNC in a shocking February upset.
The Tar Heels will go for the series sweep Sunday at noon in Carmichael Arena.
