The 2014 Tar Heels opened with a five-game winning streak that included two wins over two eventual NCAA seeds before a loss at Louisville. Three wins--two over tournament teams--were followed by a loss to Virginia, but Carolina closed the regular season with eight straight wins and an aggregate score of 37-4. UNC then split a pair of overtime games in the ACC tournament and had a record of 17-3 entering NCAAs. They still earned the top seed in the NCAA tournament after posting a 6-1 record against the field, beating the three other seeded teams. After a pair of wins at home, the Heels advanced to the final weekend where they lost to Syracuse in a shootout. Led by All-Americans Charlotte Craddock, Sam Travers and Nina Notman, UNC kept their streak of the semifinals alive. The Heels faced the nation’s toughest schedule and finished the season with the top RPI in the country.
