UNC, Campbell will represent Triangle in NCAA tourney

Posted May 26
Updated May 27

— The University of North Carolina (34-25) is the only Triangle team to earn a bid to the NCAA baseball field of 64. Both Duke and North Carolina State University were left on the outside looking in Monday when the field was announced. 

The Tar Heels will face Long Beach State in the Gainesville, Fla., regional Friday at 1 p.m. (ESPN3). The teams have just one prior meeting, a Tar Heel win in Chapel Hill in 1992.

A total of seven teams from the ACC, including regular season champion Florida State and ACC Baseball Tournament champion Georgia Tech, got bids.

Campbell University, winners of the Big South Tournament Sunday, will start play Friday at 7 p.m. (ESPN3) in the Columbia, S.C., regional against host South Carolina. The Camels are 40-19 on the season, hitting the 40-win mark for the third straight year.

    Wasn't suggesting Lacrosse was a lesser sport. Just responding to somebody who was taking a dig at baseball. I respect all sports as it takes serious work and dedication to compete at a certain level, regardless of the sport. I prefer baseball and football but all sports are great...IMO.

    Exactly. I can understand Duke fans being disappointed that their team didn't hear their name called for the tourney, but SOS had everything to do with Duke's being excluded.

    UNC getting in and Duke not getting in has much more to do with scheduling than luck. Maybe with a decent season under their belts the Bluedevils can/will schedule some tougher opponents next year.

    I'd like to see Big Papi win a face off then go down the field about 40 yards and score in about 4 seconds time...

    Congrats to the heels and to the Camels. Sports aside, Campbell is the best school in NC. I am not knocking you either Duke, just my opinion. Back to sports, Duke could have been in unc's spot but, you know the heels always have the luck on their side. Congrats to you and hopefully someone will bring the banner back to NC, like Buies Creek. Go Camels!!! cause my old Wolfpack just didn't cut the mustard this year, more like the cheese.

    - Quit your crybaby antics. The 3-2 strikeout call on the Heels' Wood Myers with the bases loaded & 2 outs was every bit as bad a call as Turner getting punched out. Replays showed the full-count pitch was BOTH High AND Inside! As an ump myself, I know that an ump is supposed to position his eyes to the upper-inside portion of a batter's strike zone. So in theory, he should NEVER miss calls on pitches that are EITHER high or inside. Also IF a pitch 'BORDERS' on the corner of BOTH "high" AND "inside" you give it to the batter, not the pitcher. Bottom line, Myers deserved an RBI base on balls & NOT an inning ending strikeout! And remember, had that proper call been made, not only does UNC score another run, but the Heels still have the bases loaded with potential to bust open a big inning on a simple basehit.

    Just an fyi, big guy! Baseball is a real sport. In fact, hitting a baseball consistently is the single hardest thing to do in all of sports. Look into it!
