Tar Heels fall to No. 1 NU

Twice in two days the North Carolina women's lacrosse team took the field to play Northwestern. Problem was Monday's was the only game that counted. After the Tar Heels took a 4-2 lead in the original contest Sunday a weather-induced cancellation forced the rescheduled game Monday to start at 0-0.

Italee Lucas hit five 3-pointers against N.C. Central on Sunday in UNC?s last nonconference match-up. All 14 Tar Heels played at least nine minutes.

W. Basketball: Bench helps with rout of NCCU

For more than 14 minutes Sunday against N.C. Central Italee Lucas couldn't miss. Five times she hoisted up 3-point shots and five times the net swished true. About the only thing hotter than her effort was the play of No. 10 North Carolina (19-3) as a whole and the Tar Heels crushed the Lady Eagles 98-45 on 54.9 percent shooting.
