Turner's Take: Tomorrow

The task before them is difficult: a team that loses the first game of an NCAA Tournament Regional must win four straight to advance to Super Regionals. That's one on day two, a double header on day three and finally another on day four. It's still a formidable task, but the Tar Heels can only tackle it one game, one pitch, one at-bat at a time. Needing a win, they prevailed. (GoHeels.com)
