In what could be described as a severe case of déjà vu, the UMBC men's soccer team again won in dramatic fashion Thursday night, advancing to the second round of the NCAA tournament with a 4-2 win in penalty kicks after a scoreless game at Old Dominion. Five days earlier, UMBC clinched the America East title in a 4-2 PK shootout after blanking New Hampshire for 90 minutes of regulation play and two overtime periods. "It's very eerie how we won," coach Pete Caringi with laugh.

Johns Hopkins moved to the top of many rankings with last Saturday's 11-10 overtime victory over then-No. 1 Virginia. The Blue Jays (8-0) are just one of three undefeated teams and put that unblemished record on the line when they meet No. 10 North Carolina at the Konica Minolta Big City Classic. The Tar Heels (7-3) have lost 24 of the 40 all-time contests with Johns Hopkins, but they are 4-1 in the teams' last five meetings. Here are a few factors that could influence the outcome at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Sunday.

Saturday's Maryland-North Carolinamen's lacrosse showdown in Chapel Hill, N.C., was a fight to the finish - right up to the point where it actually became one. The two teams didn't shed their lacrosse gloves for boxing gloves as a bench-clearing brawl began in the final minute of the Tar Heels' 11-10 win , but that certainly didn't stop the fisticuffs before a national television audience. As you can see in the video below, in a matter of seconds, Tar Heels attackman Greg McBride goes from lying on the Fetzer Field grass to on the attack.

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.
