Two Left Standing
The nice thing about sports, there’s always one or two surprises left in the grab bag. The NCAA Baseball Regionals made quick work of a number of ACC teams. Now there’s two left standing as they head to the Super Regionals.
NC State, Louisville, Florida State and Clemson have all fallen by the wayside. It’s time for Duke and North Carolina to get their “freak” on as they set their sites on Omaha.
Duke will be paired up with Texas Tech in Lubbock for their best of three series. Meanwhile, North Carolina gets to stay home in Chapel Hill to face Stetson. The Blue Devils are a #2 seed with the Red Raiders a #1 seed. The Hatters and Tar Heels are both #1 seeds.
Texas Tech is 42-17 while Duke sports a 44-16 overall record. Stetson brings a 48-11 record while North Carolina is 41-18.
