The Northwestern women's Sunday lacrosse game against No. 1 North Carolina at Lakeside Field has been postponed because the Tar Heels had travel problems that will prevent them from getting to Evanston in time for the noon start, according to Northwestern sports information officer Scott Hammer.

The game was rescheduled for 3:30 p.m. Monday.

Defending NCAA champion North Carolina (11-0) is scheduled to play next against No. 2 Maryland (13-0) Friday in Chapel Hill.
