This Week With Mike Fox

At the time of the game against the Tar Heels – Liberty had 30 wins with a strong RPI. How important are quality wins heading down the stretch to the post-season? Mike Fox: “Down the stretch here they are all extremely important to us in the position that we are in. The losses that we have accumulated during the course of the season, they make games down the stretch that much more critical." (Inside Carolina)

Monday Baseball Report

UNC is 43rd in the RPI. The Heels' best shot at improving that number comes when FSU comes to town on May 9-11. UNC then faces Miami in Coral Gables the following weekend. A series win against one of those teams would be nice and even finishing 3-3 in ACC play and above .500. In addition to that, UNC handling the midweek non-conference slate is an absolute necessity.

UNC 0-for-This Year in ACC Team Titles?

Barring UNC winning one of the last three championships, the Heels will finish the 2013-14 season without winning a single official ACC title in any team sport.

Per UNC, the Tar Heels have never not won at least one ACC title in something. (Tar Heel Blog)
