NEW YORK CITY-Simply amazing.
That's the only way to describe the North Carolina
You've heard about those guys.
The kids were supposed to finish somewhere above
Clemson and right around Maryland in the Atlantic
Coast Conference basketball standings.
The only way they were given a chance of finishing in
the ACC's top five was for three teams to drop out of
And if they wanted to go to a postseason
tournament, they would have to pay to get in.
Yet when the National Invitational Tournament finals
are played here Saturday, it will be those same Tar Heels
who will be battling for the title. The Heels will play
Georgia Tech, who beat St. Bonaventure in the second
game Thursday night.
Carolina advanced to the finals by beating Duke
73-67 Thursday night.
They did it in typical fashion. As throughout the
entire season, the odds were stacked against them.
Dennis Wuycik, the team's leading scorer, missed the
game after undergoing knee surgery Wednesday morning.
The Tar Heels were playing the team that finished the
season with a rush, winning 10 of 1 1 games.
And Carolina had already beaten Duke twice earlier
in the year. There was supposed to be no way the Tar
Heels could defeat a team as talented as Duke three
times in one year.
Yet they did it.
As has been the case all year, they did it with a great
First and foremost, there was George Karl, who
scored a game-high 21 points and directed Carolina's
four corners offense beautifully in the game's closing
Then there was Lee Dedmon, who once again played
Duke's all-star center Randy Denton like he owned him.
Denton, who entered the game with a 21 -point average,
ended a frustrating career against the Tar Heels with
only 10 points.
Forwards Bill Chamberlain and Dave Chadwick had
1 0 points apiece and sub guards Kim Huband and Dale
Gipple combined for 15.
And finally there was Steve Previs, who forced the
usually capable Duke guards into numerous turnovers.
"Previs was brilliant as he has been all year," said
Carolina Coach Dean Smith. "I thought our defense was
superb in the first five minutes."
It was those first five minutes that proved to be the
difference in the game.
Before Duke Coach Bucky Waters could get his
famous seat belt fastened, his club was down 9-0.
Karl hit two 16-footers, Craig Corson hit a free throw
and Donn Johnston and Chadwick scored inside for the
Carolina upped that margin to 13-2 when Karl hit
from the top of the circle and then tdOk 3 Chamberlain
pass for a layup.
Sparked by reserve guard Gary Melchionni the Blue
Devils rallied to within 17-16. However, that was as close
as Duke was to get in the game and UNC pulled to a
31-26 halftime lead.
Led by Melchionni, who started the second half,
Duke got within two, 40-3S, with 13:53 to pby. But
Carolina outscored the Devils 12-1 to take charge.
Chadwick and Karl each had a basket and two free
throws in that stretch and Dedmon and Gipple also got
Meanwhile Denton had picked up his fourth foul and
Duke's offense was in the hands of outside shooters Rick
Katherman and Richie O'Connor. Both hit cold streaks
and the Blue Devils fell behind 52-39.
However, both began to find the range and brought
Duke within five with6: 14 to go. It was at this time that
Smith went to the four corners offense.
Karl, Previs and Huband ran it well and Duke was
forced to foul.
In fact, Carolina did not score a field goal in the
game's last seven minutes. But after going into the delay
offense, the Tar Heels did hit 17 of 24 free throws.

According to a story in the
Greensboro Daily News, the Warren
Commission on Higher Education has
narrowed its possible recommendations
on reorganizing the University to two
possible moves including a
deconsolidation of UNC which could cost
Consolidated University (CU) President
William C. Friday his job.
The two possible recommendations
are: 1) creating a single centralized
governing board for all state-supported
universities and 2) establishing a single
coordinating board with 16 individual
boards for each branch campus
Details have not been worked out for
either plan, but if either of these two
plans is adopted, and the Daily News
story says one probably will be, President
Friday's job will be gone.
The Daily News quoted Friday as
saying it was "too early" to tell about the
prospects of the CU remaining intact.
The Warren Commission has taken no
votes, and the Daily News did not poll
the membership. But the story quoted
several unidentified sources as saying one
of the two plans would probably be
adopted. In doing so, they used such
words as "feeling" and "sentiment."
The general feeling of the commission,
according to the sources, is that the
Consolidated University as it is now will
not be around much longer.
The final commission report will be
delivered to Gov. Bob Scott by a
self-imposed deadline of April 15.
The commission is composed of 22

The three members of the Durham motorcycle
gang were accused of knifing Cates, a black, to death
in a brawl outside of the Carolina Union in the early
morning hours of Saturday, Nov. 21.
At the time of the fight which led to Cates' death,
an all-night dance was being held in the Union Snack
Bar, sponsored by the Union and the Afro-American
The Orange County Grand Jury later criticized the
University for allowing the dance to be held.
The three defendants were arrested later that
Saturday and were bound over to the preliminary
hearing by the Grand Jury.
The preliminary hearing was held early in
December in Orange County District Court, where
the three were ordered held for trial. In a special
hearing later in December, the three were granted bail
of SI 0,000 each.
Some four hours of the opening day of the trial
were devoted to selecting the 1 2 jurors and the two
alternates. Among the 14 were 12 men and two
women, mainly coming from outside the immediate
area of Ghapel Hill.
Witnesses for the state began testifying late
Monday and continued Tuesday and Wednesday.
The opening witness for the State was Campus
Police Officer Charles Mauer, one of the officers
called to the Union on the morning of the stabbing.
He told of his encounter with Broadwell outside of
the Union some minutes before the stabbing of Cates
took place, but said he was inside of the Union at the
actual time of the incident which led to Cates' death.
One of the state's material witnesses, Calvin
Edwards, 17, spent a number of hours on the stand
under both direct and cross examination.
It was unclear Thursday whether the State would
appeal the case.

Hinton James dormitory will have coeducational
housing beginning in September and Winston
dormitory will be converted to a men's dorm to allow
the change according to an official release from the
Chancellor's office Thursday.
The Chancellor also announced Project Hinton
would be renewed and will continue to be located on
the ninth and tenth floors of James.
The decisions were made public in a letter from
Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson to Dr. E. Maynard
Adams, chairman of the Project Hinton Evaluation
Sitterson expressed his appreciation to Adams and
the committee for the work that has been done in
evaluating the Project, which was set up on an
experimental basis two years ago.
"Many details concerning the organization and
operation" of the Project remain to be ironed out,
said the Chancellor, but these should be completed
"within a month."
Director of the Department of Residence Life
Robert Kepner released a statement elaborating on
the change of James to a coed dorm and other
changes required to make the shift..
Space foe 160 women will be provided on three
floors in James, said Kepner. Including the women in
Project Hinton, there will be 225 women in the dorm
next year compared to 720 men.
Kepner pointed out the contrast in Morrison
dormitory, which is presently coed. Morrison houses
377 women and 605 men.
"Strong impetus for the extension of coeducation
in James was derived from a concern expressed by the
students and the Executive Council in James that a
more wholesome environment needed to be
developed in the college." said Kepner 's release.
After studying the effect of coed living on the
students in Morrison dorm, Kepner said it is was
found "that a coeducational living arrangement
provides a meaningful, desirable and natural
environment for the growth of students, both men
Kepner said a James Advisory Board would be
formed after Spring break to plan the development of
a coed James.
The approximately 160 women's spaces in
Winston dormitory will be relocated in James, said
Kepner's release. Kepner had informed the .women in
Winston Wednesday night of the impending change.
"There was no mass opposition to the change in
Winston," he related.
The reasons Winston was chosen, said Kepner,
were a high turnover rate, the face there are no
freshman woman and few sophomore women in the
dorm and ; that there was little opposition to the
There will be no need for ah extensive change in
the dorm to convert it, said Kepner, since until 1965
it had served as a men's dorm.
A change resulting from the switch of Winston
dorm to a men's facility is the relocation of the "I"
floor, said Kepner.
The "I" floor, presently located in Winston and
housing American and foreign students as part of the
International Student Center, will be moved to the
third floor of Mclver dormitory.
Kepner said the changes in making James coed
represent "a significant step forward. There will be a
lot of time spent working out details between now
and June but I am happy with the changes."
Persons wishing to apply for a residence in one of
the four residential units, as they will exist next year,
should submit their applications to the residence
director at the dorms in which they wish to move.
Application for these dorms will be submitted
between April 5-9, for students presently living in the
forms, and April 12-15, for students who wish to
move to the dorms.
