CHAPEL HILL, NC - University of North Carolina (7-0) starter and preseason All-America LHP Andrew Miller (2-0) allowed two hits, one walk, and struck out 11 in 7.0 innings as the #4 Tar Heels took advantage of five George Washington (1-3) errors to sweep the three game series with the Colonials by taking game three 14-0 Sunday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium.
