Thanks for bearing with us in between episodes of COLLEGE CROSSECAST as we had some obligations to take care of last week.

UNC keeps the good times rolling after beating Denver 15-13 over the weekend.

The No. 4 North Carolina men’s lacrosse team (5-0) took its offensive arsenal out west on Sunday and extended its undefeated start to the 2020 season with a 15-13 road victory over No. 11 Denver (3-2).

What happened?

The altitude did little to slow UNC early on, as the Tar Heels’ balanced offensive attack quickly jumped out to a 5-0 lead. Denver wasn’t able to run a settled offensive set until the second quarter and wasn’t able to put points on the board until it was given the opportunity to rest the defense and play a slower game.
