Three of the top four teams in The Sun's lacrosse poll will be competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Friday and Saturday at Duke University in Durham, N.C.
Top-ranked North Carolina (10-0) will play unranked Duke (7-4) at 8 p.m. in the second game of a doubleheader in the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium. The first game will pit No. 3 Virginia (9-2) against No. 4 Maryland (7-2), which is coming off an 11-8 win over Johns Hopkins. The survivors will meet for the ACC title Saturday at 8 p.m.
"It's hard to figure these things [season-ending conference tournaments], but this one has a lot of significance for all the teams involved," said Jim "Ace" Adams, Virginia coach.
