Weekend Preview: May 15-18

Aaron Fitt -

It doesn't get much better than this: No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the regular-season finale, with the Atlantic Coast Conference championship and, in all likelihood, the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament on the line. Either top-ranked Miami or second-ranked North Carolina is going to lose a series this weekend for the first time all year. The two teams are a combined 21-0-1 in weekend series, 42-9 in the ACC and 83-15 overall. Gaudy numbers, especially in this year of widespread parity in college baseball.

Learning In Lincoln

J.J. Cooper -

When righthander Jason Jarvis arrived in Lincoln, he brought with him a couple of suitcases, a glove and a whole lot of baggage. There have been questions about his maturity and his decision-making that have followed him since his high school career. It's not possible to say that all of the makeup questions that surrounded him are behind him after just a couple of weeks with the American Association's Saltdogs, but there are signs that the professional life suits Jarvis pretty well.

Will Lingo -Premium Content
