Season so far
The Tar Heels started the season strong, with out of conference series wins against ECU and a sweep against Coastal Carolina. They followed this up with a sweep of Pitt and a series win against Duke. Unfortunately, the Heels have struggled since then, with series losses to Virginia Tech and Louisville, and they were swept by Miami. They are 21-12 and 7-8 in conference.

North Carolina is a team in the Florida State model, they have strong pitching backed up by questionable hitting. The Jackets plan for the weekend should be the same, try and get up on the Heels early and force them into their bullpen.
