History favors Tar Heels in ACC tussle
November 27th, 2009 8:30AM



[NORTH CAROLINA-WAKE FOREST PREVIEW] The Tar Heels host Wake in a battle of ACC teams Friday at 2 p.m. ET at Fetzer Field.

History is on Carolina's side. It has won 13 successive games against the Demon Deacons, including a 4-0 win in the 2009 regular season. The Tar Heels have faced an ACC foe 17 times in an NCAA Tournament game, losing only once. They fell to Florida State in a shootout four years ago in the the quarterfinals.

Players to Watch ...
Casey Nogueira (North Carolina). The senior will make her 100th appearance for the Tar Heels when she plays in Friday's game, joining 14 other players in the Carolina century club. She leads UNC with nine goals and nine assists, down from her 25-and-8 totals of a year ago, but she has had a strong postseason. She was the MVP of the ACC Tournament and had the only goal in the 1-0 win over Maryland in the NCAA quarterfinals.

Casey Luckhurst (Wake Forest). In the seasons with the Demon Deacons, Luckhurst had not scored until she had both goals in Wake's 2-0 win over Kennesaw State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Floridian followed that up with the second goal in the 3-0 victory over West Virginia in the second round.

The road so far ...
North Carolina 1 (Bronze 68) High Point 0.
North Carolina 4 (Jones 9, Heath 27, Klingenberg 79, Bronze 82) Georgia 0.
North Carolina 1 (Nogueira 82) Maryland 0.

Wake Forest 2 (Luckhurst 2, 15) Kennesaw State 0
Wake Forest 3 (Hutchinson 21, Luckhurst 25, Berry 35) West Virginia 0.
South Carolina 0 Wake Forest 1 (Harrington 90).
