Miami dropped a 3-1 decision to Maine at Coral Gables, while Georgia Tech fell to Radford by the same score in Atlanta. Virginia Tech lost to Delaware 8-1 at Charleston, S.C., and Wake Forest dropped a 5-4 decision at home to Towson.

Top-ranked Virginia bounced back from its opening loss to Kentucky by blanking VMI 12-0 at Wilmington, N.C., while Duke swept a doubleheader from visiting SUNY-Binghamton by scores of 7-3 and 5-1.
