Holberton’s two run-single provided an early lead for the Tar Heels (53-8), the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Canisius (42-16) trailed 4-3 in the eighth before UNC added two runs on Mike Zolk‘s sacrifice fly and Frank’s single to stay in control.
The Tar Heels improved to 27-5 as an NCAA host, though this is the first time UNC has been the No. 1 overall seed.
