Tournament overview[edit]

North Carolina completed a perfect 16 and 0 season by defeating Towson 18-13, to win the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship, the fourth overall for the Tar Heels.

Towson, coached by Carl Runk, became the first unseeded team to reach the NCAA Division I lacrosse finals. Towson got as close as 12 to 11 at the start of the 4th quarter, after scoring 5 straight goals. But Carolina controlled the remainder of the game in winning the national title for the first time since 1986.
