In terms of UNC's ACC Tournament chances, the Tar Heels presently sit in 5th place but the field around them has gotten very crowded.

This Week With Mike Fox
Coach Fox, can you reflect back on the East Carolina game last week? "I'd rather not. [Laughs]. That was obviously not a good game for us.

It was a disappointing performance."

6-day exam break timely for Tar Heel baseball
The North Carolina baseball team headed into their final game against East Carolina carrying a four-game winning streak, seemingly carrying a bit of momentum.
