Here we go. For the fourth straight season, Boston College women’s lacrosse is in the Final Four, and they’re looking to get over the hump and win their first national championship.
To do it, their first step will have to be pulling off a pretty significant upset over the North Carolina Tar Heels - a team that is 20-0 and beat the Eagles 19-7 early in the season.
When and where:
Today’s game will start at 12 PM ET. It is being played at Johnny Unitas Stadium on the campus of Towson University in Towson, MD.
How to watch on TV:
The game will be televised live on ESPNU.
How to stream:
If your cable or streaming provider gets the ESPN family of networks, you can stream the game via WatchESPN.com.
If it doesn’t, now would be a good time to sign up for a free trial from one of the major streaming services like YoutubeTV or Fubo TV, which carry ESPNU.
The full Final Four picture:
Once BC and UNC finish up, game 2 will be Syracuse vs. Northwestern (also televised live on ESPNU and streamed on WatchESPN). The winners advance to Sunday’s national championship game (12 PM, ESPNU).
A comprehensive preview of the matchup was posted by our friends at SB Nation’s College Crosse. Their stat model gives UNC a 69.1% chance of winning and shows that BC’s one statistical edge over the Tar Heels is in draw controls - something BC’s Charlotte North and Holly Schleicher will have to excel at today to keep UNC’s dangerous offense away from the BC goal.
