CHAPEL HILL – The No. 24 UNCsoftball team returns from a long road trip to Kentucky and hosts NC Central Tuesday for a two-game non-conference series.

The Tar Heels left Kentucky with a record of 1-4 with key losses to No. 17 Kentucky on Tuesday and No. 11 Louisville on Friday. UNC did close the Louisville Tournament with a 10-2 win in five innings against Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

The tough journey dropped Carolina to 19-10 overall, but the Tar Heels are still working on a 3-0 conference mark with a meeting with the only other undefeated team in league play, the Florida State Seminoles this weekend.

Tuesday’s double-header against the NCCU Eagles begins at 4:00 p.m. at Anderson Stadium in Chapel Hill. The second game is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
