IL On the Scene: March 9
While many eyes were focused on the Whitman's® Sampler® Independence Classic near Philadelphia, big games…


The 11th-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels host the fifth-ranked Princeton Tigers at Fetzer Field in Chapel Hill, N.C. on Saturday.

It is a beautiful sunny March morning, about 46 degress, with hundreds of people already on hand outside the gates as local school children participate in a Turn It Pink promotional event that is part of the game.

Carolina's players are wearing pink T-shirts with the Tar Heels logo on the front during warmups.

North Carolina (2-2) is coming off a triple-overtime 10-9 loss to No. 2 Notre Dame last week while Princeton (3-0) is coming off its recent 14-11 win over Villanova.

The two teams meet for the 15th time during their all-time series against one another, with the series tied 7-7.
Of the previous 14 games played, seven have been one-goal contests.
