Historic Weekend For Greg Duncan, Olympic Sports Notes

Competing in the ACC Championships for the first time, freshman Greg Duncan accomplished a feat no North Carolina male diver had achieved in 60 years. Duncan won the three-meter diving competition on Wednesday and the one-meter diving event on Thursday. In doing so, he became the first Tar Heel to sweep the springboard events since 1958.

Diamond Heels Win Thriller At USF, 9-8

North Carolina won a thriller Sunday against USF thanks to an Ike Freeman solo home run in the top of the 10th inning and a three-inning win from Austin Bergner who retired nine straight Bulls batters.

No. 6 North Carolina bounced back from its season opening loss in a big way with a 12 to 5 win over USF at USF Baseball Field on Saturday night.

The Tar Heels will be back in action Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

UNC baseball sophomores return as expected leaders for 2018 season

Sophomores are expected to lead the way for the Tar Heels in the 2018 season. Three UNC players were named first-team Freshman All-Americans, beginning with Ashton McGee. McGee spent the majority of his first year at designated hitter, finished third on the team in batting average (.327) and added seven home runs and 46 RBIs.

UNC Baseball Ready to Toss Out First Pitch of 2018

The sixth-ranked Tar Heels toss out the first pitch of the 2018 season on Friday in Tampa against South Florida. The hype surrounding this North Carolina team is even greater than a season ago, due to a stocked pitching staff headlined by starting right-hander Gianluca Dalatri and ace closer Josh Hiatt, both of whom were tabbed as preseason All-Americans.

Interview with North Carolina baseball coach Mike Fox

There aren’t many in the game better than Mike Fox. In his time as the head baseball coach for The University of North Carolina, Fox has a record of 846-360-1. His Tar Heels have averaged almost 45 wins a season. They’ve made 16 trips to the postseason and been to Omaha 6 times. And oh, by the way, 88 of his former players have been selected in the MLB Draft.

UNC Baseball: Get The Two Back Up

North Carolina returns 80 percent of its innings pitched from last season. That group of pitchers is highlighted by sophomore Gianluca Dalatri, a member of the 55-player preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list, and All-American closer Josh Hiatt. Experienced reliever Hansen Butler also returns after missing last season due to shoulder surgery.

With college baseball on the way, an early look at who could be on the road to Omaha

North Carolina - The tournament’s No. 2 overall seed couldn’t capitalize on the momentum. Davidson stunned them in their own regional. Much of UNC’s talent remains, though. The Tar Heels do have to replace ace J.B. Bukauskas (drafted in the first round), but sophomore right-hander Luca Dalatri and sophomore closer Josh Hiatt are poised to become the new stars.

Zack Gahagan set for senior season for Diamond Heels

As he starts his senior season on the baseball team at North Carolina, Zack Gahagan is ready to put an exclamation mark on a college career that he hopes will be the springboard to the major leagues. The former North Henderson star begins his fourth year as a starter in the Tar Heels’ infield with an added 25 pounds he hopes will help him power through some injuries.

UNC's Gianluca Dalatri anchors 2018 pitching staff

Mike Fox knew he was getting a good pitcher when Gianluca Dalatri committed to North Carolina in 2014. In his final three years of high school, Dalatri went 30-0 at Christian Brothers Academy in New Jersey and was named the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year twice. But after a game last March, the UNC head coach admitted, "He's better than I thought he was."

Wild Card Matt Harvey Could Become Link To Mets’ Postseason Hopes

But if Matt Harvey can provide that link from the front to the back, they might just have the stuff of which postseason dreams are made. He seems ready. The offseason workouts went well, as pitching coach Dave Eiland recently told the media. And Harvey’s picture hasn’t appeared on the gossip pages with any of those high-fashion heartbreakers.

No. 6 North Carolina Baseball Opens 2018 Season at USF

No. 6 North Carolina opens its 2018 campaign Friday at 7 p.m. with the first of a three-game series against the University of South Florida. The Tar Heels have won their last three season-openers with victories over Seton Hall, UCLA and Kentucky. Friday night will be followed by a 6:30 p.m. meeting on Saturday and a 12 p.m. meeting on Sunday.

Walston: UNC vs NC State - Of course it's a rivalry

When you want to beat a team so you can talk trash, it’s a rivalry. When you want to not lose to a team as badly as you want to beat them, it’s a rivalry. Roy Williams wants to beat NC State at least as much as he wants to beat anybody on the schedule. Mike Fox, too —he threw on a red Carolina Hurricanes sweater for an event a few years ago, but he didn’t like it.
