The Women’s Lacrosse Final Four gets underway tomorrow, May 28, at 12 PM, when the Boston College Eagles take on #1 UNC on ESPNU. The Eagles will be pushing both for a significant upset, and for the continuation of their streak of national championship game appearances.

To help get ready for the game, here’s a roundup of previews and content:

“We just have to work really hard and grind all week and find a way to be one, two percent better than we were the last time we played them and a little bit better than we were two days ago,” Walker-Weinstein said. “It’s going to take all eight of our defenders to have a chance, because it’s a tall task.”

The one area of this game where Boston College has an advantage is the draw control circle. No one in the country wins more draw controls per game than Charlotte North, and Holly Schleicher is very effective when she spells North as well. They’re 2nd in the country in Adjusted Draw Control Percentage. North Carolina, because they’re good at everything, is 4th. But it is an advantage for the Eagles. The question is, how much of an advantage can they make that? In the first meeting, the Eagles won 56% of the draws, which while successful, was below their 62% for the year... But it wasn’t enough.
