over 2nd-ranked South Carolina Monday
night-and made it look surprisingly easy.
After giving up much of a I6-point
Hrst half lead, the Tar Heels regained
their stride to deal USC a 79-64 defeat.
The Gamecocks, unbeaten in nine
games, closed within four points with
four minutes remaining, but wilted down
Clutch foul shooting by Kim Huband
and Lee Dedmon and a couple of driving
baskets by George Karl preserved
Carolina's ninth win in 1 1 games.
The visitors, regarded by no less an
authority than Tar Heel Coach Dean
Smith as possibly the finest team to ever
compete in the Atlantic Coast
Conference, hurt themselves severely with
Huband scored pressure points on a
pair of technical fouls and dropped in
two more on a one-and-one opportunity.
