The new season begins for the North
Carolina Tar Heels this week when they
enter the Atlantic Coast Conference
Basketball Tournament in Greensboro as
the top-seeded team.
Coach Dean Smith's Tar Heels won the
top-seeded berth by capturing the
league's regular season championship with
a record of 11-3. "But nothing that has
happened so far means anything now,"
says Smith. "The new season begins on
Thursday." Carolina opposes ClemsoD in
the first round at 1 :30 p.m. Thursday.
Carolina dropped its final regular
season game Saturday to fired-up Duke
on the Blue Devils' home court, 92-83.
That brought up the question about how
much momentum means going into the
"I don't think momentum means all
that much," says Smith. "We've won it
both ways. We've taken the tournament
after winning final regular season games.
And we've also won the tournament after
losing our last game of the regular

points captured for them a distant third.
Virginia placed fourth with 49 and
Clemson trailed the field with a 27 total.
In viewing the team victory, head
coach Ron Miller said: "It feels really
good to win the first ACC tourney. After
we' won the i regular season, I f elt we could
do it, but we've never been a particularly
strong tournament team.
"Despite some inconsistencies, we still
managed to come through with the

necessary big wins. Everyone on the team
made a significant contribution and I can
only add that I would like to have seen
more of our fencers compete."

performance of epee-men Jon Pavloff and
Chad Hilton with near-perfect 13-1
records. Hilton was awarded first place in
the weapon after a face-off with his
teammate. Ben Brinson was 9-5 for the
Bo McBee was the only Tar Heel to
place in the top three in sabre. His 11-3

Coach Miller noted that he was
particularly proud of the bout in which
Veslick fenced against Virginia's Steve
Hatten, the weapons individual champion
with a 12-2 record. Veslick took an
impressive 5-2 victory over the Virginian.
The actual outcome of the meet was
never in any real doubt, as the Tar Heels
jumped off to a quick lead in the first

lead rose to as many as 10 bouts before it
was cut to its smallest at the finish.
The tournament victory gave coach
Miller's fencers their third conference

competition. This year's team finished
with a 10-1 overall record, the only loss
