The Tar Heels No. 1 team of Whitney Kay and Carolina Price secured the doubles point with a 7-6 (7-5) victory.

In singles, #2 Loeb continued her torrid play with a 6-1, 6-0, win at No. 1 singles over #61 Lauren Mira, giving Carolina a 2-0 lead over the Commodores.

Vanderbilt tightened the match at 2-1 by winning at No. 6 singles, before Caroline Price came-from-behind to win at No. 4 singles, 1-6, 6-2, 10-7, for a 3-1 advantage.

The 'Dores earned a straight set win at No. 5 singles to make it 3-2, and then tied the match at 3-3 when #48 Georgina Sellyn outlasted #88 Whitney Kay, 4-6, 7-5, 11-9, leaving it up to Carter and Colton to decide who would advance to play on Saturday.

The second-seeded Tar Heels will face seventh-seed Duke on Saturday. The Blue Devils won 4-2 over Michigan on Friday.
