Pretty darim good9

After the Maryland Terrapins routed
lOth-ranked North Carolina 96-74, gave the
Tar Heels their biggest defeat ever in
Carmichael Auditorium and ended a clean
sweep on Big Four courts this season, Terp
coach Lefty Driesell has every right to crow
his team is "pretty darn good."
"I hesitate to call us a great team, but we've
got to be pretty darn good to win down here
by 20 points," Driesell said following the
Atlantic Coast Conference win and the final
regular season game the Terps have
scheduled to play in North Carolina.
The Terps held on to their no. 1 spot in the
ACC, compiling an 8-2 record in the
conference and climbing to 18-3 overall.
North Carolina State moved a half game
behind Maryland with their 89-87 escape
past Wake Forest. The Wolf pack is 7-2 in the
ACC and 18-3 overall, while Wake Forest
remains resting in the cellar with a 2-10 ACC
record and a 10-12 overall. Clemsori (7-3, 13
8) thrashed Duke (2-8, 12-10) 100-66 and
Virginia (3-7, 1 0-1 0) fell to Pittsburgh 7 1 -70.
All-America David Thompson and
freshman Kenny Carr racked up 22 points
each to lead fourth-ranked North Carolina
State over the scrappy Deacons. At the half
Wake Forest, which upset the defending
ACC champions earlier in the season, led 43
37. But the Wolf pack came back strong in
the second half. Jerry Schellenberg of the
Deacons led game scoring with 25 points.
In Clemson's revenge battle against Duke,
Skip Wise hit for 2 1 points to lead the Tigers
to their win and a fourth-place hold on the
ACC roster. Tiger coach Tates Locke
emptied his bench in the seccond half against
the Blue Devils. Leading Duke scoring were
Bob Fleischer with 16 points and Mark
Crow with 14.
Pittsburgh had to go into overtime to beat
Virginia, but a layup with two seconds still
on the clock gave the Panthers the one-point
advantage. Leading all scorers was the
Cavaliers Wally Walker with 25 points.
Wednesday Maryland goes to Virginia,
North Carolina State hosts Duke, Davidson
entertains Wake Forest and Clemson travels
to Georgia Tech.
The Saturday game between North
Carolina State and Clemson will be
regionally televised. Also Saturday, North
Carolina visits Virginia, Long Island visits
Wake Forest and Georgia Tech comes to
Duke. Sunday Maryland will be at
"Brothers and sisters, heed me. I am
honored and pleased that those of you with
great abounding faith have decided to come
to this revival. .
Our numbers are ever on the increase. We
are as an army, lovers of basketball, pursuers
of the truth. We ask the universal question,
who is No. 1?
And I, as your leader, the right reverend
Lerand (Lefty) Druscell, will lead you in the
weekly holy roller part of our worship. I ask
you to answer my statements with a loud
chorus of Amen.
Now, brothers and sisters, we must speak
of the ACC, that most holy of basketball
"And we must talk of the now legendary
Massacre on the Hill. Oh, woe to the legion
of Tar Heel followers who were present at
the worst beating any Carolina team has
suffered in the hallowed halls bf
"Oh, how well those Terrapins played.
How superbly the Deceptive Brad Davis and
Strong Steve Sheppard played. How lucky is
Lefty Driesell to have a'team so good that he
does not have to do any coaching."
"How fortunate are the Maryland
Followers to know they worship the best
team in the ACC this year."
"And how mighty in importance will the
battle between those hated rivals Carolina
and State be. How loud will echo the walls as
the Tar Heels try to do something they have
never done beat David Thompson."
"Oh brethren, I fear that I have sad news
for those who follow the Carolina fortunes.
The bad news is that Maryland almost
assuredly has won a spot in the NCAA
playoffs thanks to the Massacre on the Hill.
Woe also that the Tar Heels must follow with
an act of strength mighty in comparison to
their talent. They must win the ACC
Tournament or at least come in second to
"Woe to the Carolina team that has played
so well on the road only to play so-so at
home. Woe to the fans who have witnessed
games in which the Tar Heels played just well
enough to win against the likes of South
Florida, Virginia, and Duke teams that
they are clearly better than.
"Prayers, brothers and sisters. Say prayers
for the Carolina team in hopes that they will
again play as well as they did at Maryland
"Pray that Walter Davis can find the
confidence in his shooting and begin to hit
the baseline jumper."
"Pray that Phil Ford can continue to show
the brilliance he has shown, so unusual in a
"Pray that Mitch Kupchak keeps his back
in shape. That Hoffman can keep hitting
from downtown. And that La Garde can hit
the boards stronger."
"Amen. amen, amen."
"Oh, brothers and sisters, we must
continue to be strong. We must seek new
ways to stop David Thompson. We must
find a way to control the tempo and slow
down Towe and Rivers."
"Finally, brothers, we must find a way to
get into the NCAA Tournament, the holiest
of affairs. We must do all we can to avoid
another trip to that city of sin New York.
We have to make sure that we end up with a
team that will not be described thusly - The
Carolina team, they were not bad. but they
were not good."
"Your prayers and your money are greatly
appreciated brethren. I hope to see you again
next week. The collection plate is on the right ,
as you exit."
