ASHEVILLE, N.C. – The UNC Asheville baseball team’s Big South Conference three-game series with High Point University has been moved from Friday, Saturday and Sunday, to Saturday, Sunday and Monday due to inclement weather in the Asheville area on Friday afternoon.
Saturday’s game will begin at 2 p.m., with Sunday and Monday’s contest beginning at 1 p.m.
Asheville (13-26, 2-10 BSC) needs some league wins to try move up in the conference standings. The Bulldogs are tied for fifth place in the South Division with Winthrop. Charleston Southern is in fourth place (15-22, 5-7 BSC). The top four teams in the North and South Divisions will qualify for next month’s Big South Conference championship in Lynchburg, Va.
The Panthers are 19-20 overall but have a 6-6 BSC worksheet. High Point has won four of its last five games and is coming off a three-game sweep at Radford last weekend. Ryan Retz leads the Panther attack with a .364 average.
