Duke slips, but 2nd in bid for repeat NCAA title

Gurbani Singh’s day began with her battling the symptoms of an oncoming cold. It finished with Singh one putt away from capping a strong second round with a birdie at the NCAA championships before the horn sounded for lightning. Despite her round being cut short, along with three other Duke golfers, the Blue Devils finished the second day at The Concession Golf Club in second place, nine strokes behind top-seed Southern California.

The win lifted the Seminoles (40-19, 20-13), the No. 4 seed entering the ACC baseball championship tournament, into a one-game title showdown with No. 6 seed N.C. State (33-20, 17-14 through Friday) Sunday, May 24 at the DBAP (1 p.m., ESPN2).

TITLE ON LINE: UNC, Terps to meet in rematch of 2013 title showdown

In the end, North Carolina’s final goal of the first half only served to pad a lead that rival Duke was unable to overcome. That the goal was scored by Brittney Coppa in that NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament semifinal Friday night, though, perfectly fit in the tale of how the Tar Heels have returned to the national championship game.

Preston Palmeiro, who was 0-for-4 until the bottom of the 12th, came up with the biggest hit of an electric 12-inning battle to give N.C. State (33-20) the 5-4 win and a berth in Sunday's ACC title game.

NCAA hands up notice of allegations to UNC

Closer, yes, but no closure for those anticipating the end of the academics scandal that both has hurt credibility and continues to impact recruiting in athletics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. UNC officials have 90 days to let the NCAA know what they plan to do with a notice of allegations from the governing body that is poised to punish the school not only for roughly 18 years of irregular course offerings but also possible infractions of NCAA bylaws.

No. 1 seed Louisville tops UNC 7-4 in ACC tournament

The key to beating No. 1 seed Louisville was simple, Mike Fox said following North Carolina's play-in game win against Virginia Tech Tuesday: play a perfect game. 
 
By starting with a leadoff home run, it appeared No. 8 seed UNC was on track to do just that Wednesday night. But the illusion of perfection can't last forever, and UNC quickly began showing signs that it wasn't capable of putting together the kind of game Fox needed out of his players to take down the best team in the league.
