CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – The North Carolina Tar Heels, selected No. 10 in the recently revealed Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Preseason Top 25 ranking, will look to follow up a 2017 ACC championship-season that ended in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
The road to the 2018 postseason was revealed by the Tar Heels on Friday when their upcoming schedule was released.
With Fetzer Field currently offline as part of a massive UNC athletics facilities upgrade, all home games will take place at Kenan Stadium.
The Tar Heels will open the season beginning Feb. 3 against Lafayette, and play six of their first seven games at Kenan.
UNC will go on the road for four straight weeks through March and then split weekends in Chapel Hill during ACC regular season and tournament play in April.
