College lacrosse roundup (April 21): Late save rescues North Carolina in upset of Notre Dame

Alex Bassil, fourth-string goalie to start the season, made a career-high 14 saves and stopped a shot by Notre Dame 's Bryan Costabile (Mount Saint Joseph) with 10 seconds left as North Carolina upset No. 15 Notre Dame, 10-9, in men's lacrosse Saturday.

The host Tar Heels (7-7, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) broke a seven-game losing streak, winning for the first time since March 3 when North Carolina beat St. John's 9-8 at Kenan Stadium.

The Fighiting Irish fell to 6-5, 1-5, but still claimed the third seed in the league tournament. Notre Dame will face second seed Duke in the semifinals Friday in Charlottesville, Virginia, at Klöckner Stadium.
