BREAKING 12:15pm 6-16-08 #7 LSU Tigers Fall to #2 NC Tarheels 8-4; LSU vs Rice: June 17th
LSU is now one game away from elimination. As Elizabeth Merrill at ESPN.com reported: The scene was painfully familiar to Alex White. On this same mound last summer, with roughly 20,000 people in the stands, he lasted just a tad longer than a Zesto's cone in a winner's bracket game against Rice.

"They're not going to let you forget last year, Alex," North Carolina coach Mike Fox joked late Sunday.
White lasted seven innings, scattering four hits against the Tigers' mighty offense. He retired eight batters after giving up a Matt Clark homer in the second and struck out six for the night.

The pro-LSU crowd moaned, and the Tar Heels pumped their fists and trotted to the dugout. "Obviously it was a big call," LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. "It was a tremendous momentum-breaker for us at that point."
But North Carolina was in control for most of the game, pounding out 17 hits and riding White's steady demeanor
