WOMEN'S NEWS ...North Carolina dropped back-to-back games for only the sixth time in its history when the No. 3 Tar Heels fell at Miami (Fla.), 1-0, on Beverly Goebel's unassisted goal with less than 10 minutes to play. Carolina had its chances, but Maria Lubrano hit the crossbar midway through the first half and Casey Nogueira hit the post with a shot just a couple of minutes before Goebel scored.

The three ACC losses equal the most in history for UNC in a single season, and it is only the second time in history UNC has lost more than one game in ACC play in the same season.  Just so Tar Heel fans know there is hope, they should consider the following: The 2000 UNC team finished 4-3 in the ACC but did go on to win the ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament championships.
