Prior to Saturday, No. 10 North Carolina had yet to string together two consecutive wins in 2013 and was just one game above .500 heading into a pivotal road contest against top-ranked and Atlantic Coast Conference foe Maryland. But that didn't prevent the Tar Heels from pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the season as they tagged the Terps with their first loss of the year in a 10-8 victory at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland (6-1) may have been the team with all of the accolades and the momentum, but it also had all of the pressure, according to North Carolina senior attackman Marcus Holman.

The Maryland football team might be without another one of its captains in Saturday's season finale at North Carolina. Defensive tackle Joe Vellano has been listed as doubtful on Maryland's injury report. The fifth-year senior is battling an ankle injury. If Vellano misses Saturday's game, he will be the third Terps captain sidelined, joining quarterback C.J. Brown (ACL) and linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield (ACL). Senior wide receiver Kevin Dorsey, who is healthy, is Maryland's fourth captain.

A 31-year-old North Carolina man was sentenced to 46 months in prison Friday following a plea agreement on charges of sex trafficking in Anne Arundel County. County police had apprehended the man, Michael Darnell Boswell Jr., in June 2013 near the Baltimore-Washington International Airport based on information from an undercover detective. Prosecutors had alleged that Boswell drove at least two women around Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina to engage in sex acts. According to a press release from the U.S, Attorney's Office, Boswell first had the women host private parties and dances, then sex work soon followed.

R ebuilding North Carolina's men's lacrosse program has been a gradual process for second-year coach Joe Breschi, but another major step will be taken if the No. 3 Tar Heels can defeat No. 5 Maryland on Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C. The Tar Heels surprised some teams last year when they advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals before losing, 12-11, to Duke, but they haven't snuck up on anybody this year. It's no longer a question whether Breschi can rebuild North Carolina, but when the Tar Heels will arrive.

The North Carolina men's lacrosse team rallied from a three-goal deficit in the second half to nip host Navy, 9-8, on Saturday, but there was no convincing R.J. Wickham about which team was the real victor. "I was disappointed we lost because as hard as we played, I don't feel like they deserve it," the senior goalkeeper said . "I don't feel like they deserved to win. I know they won, but that's basically how I feel. " Wickham's post-game comments were likely rooted in frustration after he and the Midshipmen (1-2)

When No. 13 North Carolina plays No. 10 Maryland on Saturday, it might be a great time for the Tar Heels to find an identity. They've been nomads for more than a decade. Syracuse has an identity. The Orange likes to run and gun and have great midfielders. Virginia is known for its fast pace, transition and athleticism. When you think of Maryland and Johns Hopkins, you think of physical defense and gritty play. But Carolina? Nothing comes to mind. Even in Joe Breschi's four years as North Carolina's head coach, the Tar Heels still haven't found themselves.

North Carolina is clinging to a spot in the top 15, but the No. 13 Tar Heels (5-3) have dropped three of their last five contests. The final score of last Friday's game against Atlantic Coast Conference foe Duke was 13-11, but North Carolina trailed, 9-3, at halftime and 10-3 5 minutes, 46 seconds into the third quarter. So it would appear that No. 10 Maryland, which visits Chapel Hill, N.C., this Saturday, is getting the Tar Heels at an opportune time. But coach John Tillman pointed out that in 2011, the Terps were riding a four-game winning streak and North Carolina had lost two games before the Tar Heels beat Maryland, 11-6, in College Park.

A series that had been relatively even has begun shifting to one side. No. 4 North Carolina (3-0) has won four of the past five meetings, including an 11-4 win on Feb. 25, 2010 that was Navy's worst loss to the Tar Heels since 1998. The Midshipmen (1-1) are looking to rebound from Sunday's 13-7 setback to Jacksonville. Here are a few factors that could influence the outcome at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday. 1) Taking advantage of extra-man advantages. Navy is averaged 10.5 goals per game thus far, but that number was inflated by the team's 14-goal outburst against VMI. The offense mustered just seven goals in a seven-goal loss to Jacksonville, and the unit's futility was aided by going 0-for-3 on man-up opportunities.

The contest, which opened on Independence Day and runs through July 14, is asking the public to name its newest avian resident, a female eagle found in North Carolina in 2009 that is estimated to be about 5-years-old. Though efforts were made to rehabilitate the bird, it was determined that she wouldn't be likely to survive if released back into the wild, according to the zoo's website. The zoo's staff previously selected five finalists: Annie (for gunfighter Annie Oakley)

Loyola Maryland assistant coach David Metzbower will join North Carolina's lacrosse coaching staff as the offensive coordinator, multiple sources have told Inside Lacrosse. Metzbower will replace Pat Myers, the Tar Heels' former offensive coach and recruiting coordinator, who was let go in May and has since been hired at Penn. Metzbower joins the staff of fellow Loyola High alumnus Joe Breschi, a Baltimore native, after spending the 2013 and 2014 seasons at Loyola, where he took over for Dan Chemotti in the wake of the Greyhounds' national championship campaign in 2012.

As Maryland prepares to move to the Big Ten this summer, games against the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers - in addition to its traditional series with Johns Hopkins - are tantalizing matchups on the upcoming schedule. But who the Terps can retain from their days in the Atlantic Coast Conference could be just as compelling. For decades, the program battled with Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. And when Notre Dame and Syracuse joined the league for the 2014 campaign, the contests were must-see opportunities for fans.

Despite the loss, the Terps (36-20) won Pool B with a 2-1 record and advanced to Sunday's championship game at 1 p.m. against ninth-seeded Georgia Tech (35-25). It is Maryland's first appearance in an ACC final since 1976; the Terps last won the conference in 1971.

All is not lost at Maryland. At least that's what the top-ranked Terps are saying after absorbing their first loss of the season via a 10-8 upset by No. 10 North Carolina Saturday at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland's first setback was compounded by questionable shot selection, an exposed defense, and an unusual case of nerves as the Tar Heels built a convincing advantage and then withstood an attempted comeback. Redshirt junior goalkeeper Niko Amato said the loss would give the players an opportunity to do a little soul-searching.

Denver coach Bill Tierney has a tongue-in-cheek answer when asked about the team's subpar showing on faceoffs with top-seeded Duke and senior extraordinaire Brendan Fowler awaiting on Saturday. “We're going to prepare the exact same way we prepared for Rutgers, North Carolina and Drexel,” Tierney said Tuesday morning during a conference call before the semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. “We're going to assume that we're going to lose every faceoff and then go from there.” Clearly, that's not how Tierney truly feels about the fifth-seeded Pioneers' faceoff unit, which has won just 47.3 percent (194-of-410)
