Regional preview: Davidson Wildcats prepare like it's any other game

DAVIDSON, N.C. — In this week’s practices, the Davidson Wildcats will not swing their bats any faster than usual. They will not throw the ball any harder than usual. There will be no new drills. In fact, a player could write down the same practice and pregame routines the baseball team has followed all season, and that schedule would be spot-on for how Davidson will prepare for its first NCAA Tournament game in its 115-year history.

North Carolina baseball ends ACC tournament with championship loss

After three days of offensive firepower at Louisville Slugger Field, the No. 2 North Carolina baseball team fell flat. UNC was shut out through the final seven innings of its 7-3 ACC title game loss to Florida State. The loss was just the fourth in 22 games for the Tar Heels (47-12), who were averaging close to 12 runs per game in their three prior tournament games.

North Carolina baseball wins ninth straight ACC series

With a season-long streak on the line, the No. 3 North Carolina baseball team needed to step up. And it did so in epic fashion. Sunday’s win over Virginia Tech was more than a win. It was a dismantling. The 20-0 victory was the biggest ACC shutout in school history.

Explosive innings propel UNC baseball past South Carolina

CHARLOTTE — Head coach Mike Fox looked down at the box score and took in the numbers: 14 hits, 10 walks, four doubles, two triples and, most importantly, 20 runs — the most for a North Carolina baseball team since 2013. Then, he glanced at the South Carolina side: 10 pitchers to get through eight innings.
