North Carolina receives votes in USA TODAY Sports coaches poll

The North Carolina Tar Heels baseball program needed a good week to rebound after losing back-to-back Atlantic Coast Conference series to Miami and Boston College.

After getting a mid-week win the Tar Heels dropped the opener at Virginia Tech on Friday night. But they got back on track by taking both games of the doubleheader to win the series over the Hokies.

The three wins in the week moved UNC to 28-16 overall and 11-11 in conference play. With just a few weeks left in the regular season, the series win was huge as UNC has some business to take care of.

However, UNC did not get back into the USA TODAY Sports coaches poll and instead received votes. UNC received 49 votes, putting them at No. 28 overall.
