In this week’s Southeast notebook we look at a big matchup in North Carolina, an up and coming program from south Florida, and more.
Montgomery Bell (Tenn.) junior Stephen Avery has been stellar for the Big Red this season, helping them to a 7-1 record. The junior leads the team in points with 51 on 33 goals and 18 assists.
