.Loss fits day;
Tar Heel women win
While Tar Heel football fans were
gatoring in Florida and the men's
basketball team was struggling in
London, the women's team was racking
up the wins during its busy but productive
The Tar Heels began the between
semesters season with a win over East
Tennessee and went on to a second-place
finish in its own Christmas tournament
before sweeping the London Invitational
in four games. Upon their return to the
United States, the women knocked off
seventh-ranked Maryland in what may be
the most important win so far this season.
A win at Virginia and a loss to Clemson
rounded out the holiday action with the
Tar Heels accumulating nine wins and
two losses during the stretch.
The Tar Heels and coach Jennifer
Alley were hoping for a win over Clemson
Monday night to possibly earn UNC a
berth in the top twenty. But the win was
not to be as Carolina let a 15-point
halftime lead slip away and saw Clemson
dominate the second half, walking away
with a narrow 76-75 win.
The Tar Heels maintain their hectic '
pace as they return to action at 5:45 p.m.
today in Atlanta against Georgia Tech.
Carolina controlled the Clemson game
on both ends of the court in the first half
as it jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead on two
field goals by junior point guard Aprille
Shaffer. The Tar Heels built the lead to 1 8
points as Clemson hit a four-minute
drought near the end of the first half.
Freshmen Henrietta Walls and Kathy
Crawford took advantage of the Tigers'
lapse and combined for 12 unanswered
points as the UNC lead was 43-25 with
1:49 remaining in the half.
Clemson rebounded in the second half
and scored the first four points an
indication of things to come. Forward
Barbara Kennedy and center Sheila Cobb
led the Tiger attack. Clemson controlled
the second half rebounding game on both
ends and held the Heels to only one shot
on almost every possession.
WI think the difference (in the first and
second half) was our board play," UNCs
Alley said. "We weren't getting some
follow-up shots and were letting Clemson
get two and three shots, especially in the
early stretch of the second half."
Senior forward Bernie McGlade led
Tar Heel scoring with 23 points while
Crawford added 18. Shaffer and junior
center Anne Lawrence scored 10 each.
Kennedy scored a game-high 30 points
for Clemson and Cobb followed with 14.
Although their troubles surfaced late in
the Clemson game, the Tar Heels'
problems were few in the Dec. 29-31
London Invitational. , .....
Carolina started the tourney with a 70
62 win over Swedish national team Rank
Xerox, the same team it faced in the
championship. McGlade led scoringwith
18 points while Crawford and freshman
forward Deanna Thomas added 10 each.
Holland's Parker Pen was the next
UNC victim as the Heels earned a 76-45
win behind McGlade's 19 points.
Freshman guard Joni Berry tossed in 12
points for Carolina.
UNC then handed England's No. 1 .
team an 89-59 defeat, before facing Rank
Rank Xerox again offered the stiffest
competition as it played Carolina to a six
point game in the 78-72 championship.
McGlade again paced UNC with 17
points while sophomore forward
Meredith White had 13 and Berry added
Alley said the tournament was a great
morale boost for her team as the players
felt a special sense of pride at the awards
"They were not only representing
themselves and the University of North
Carolina, but even more, they were
representing the United States," Alley
said. She also said the tournament helped
speed the maturing process for her young
"We believed in ourselves after that
trip," she said. "Our young kids grew up.
They became basketball players instead
of freshmen. That carried over into the
Maryland game and it helped us at
With the championship in London
tucked safely away, the only thing that
could improve the Tar Heel spirits would
be a win over defending ACC champion
Maryland. After battling to a four-point
half time advantage at 35-31, Carolina
held on to take ; the 64-62 win in
"We did a super job as far as team play
is concerned," Alley said. "We played
smart; we didn't foul the shooter and give
them three-pointers. We were cool and
confident during the game and pulled off
The Tar Heels got balanced scoring
from Shaffer with 15, McGlade with 13,
Thomas with 12 and Walls with 10.
UNC then traveled to Charlottesville,
Va., Jan. 5 and had to go into overtime to
bring home a 66-65 win. McGlade and
Berry led the Heels with 15 and 14 points
In December action, UNC lost to
Clemson in the championship of the
Carolina Christmas Classic, a
tournament the Tar Heels have yet to win
in its four-year history.
McGlade and Lawrence were all
tournament selections after UNC downed
Northern Kentucky 65-64 in the opening
round and went on to beat No. 19 Mercer
100-79 in semifinal action. Carolina
bowed to the Tigers in the final 80-77.
- The Tar Heels also downed East
Tennessee 64-54 Dec. 8, in Chapel Hill
behind the scoring of Lawrence with 1 1
and Wells and McGlade with 10 each.

MACON, GA. With about five-and-a-half minutes
left in Monday night's North Carolina-Mercer
basketball game here, the Tar Heel's Al Wood showed
the 8,000 people in Macon Coliseum what this game was
The junior forward from Gray just a three-point
jump shot from Macon deflected a pass at the time line
and raced in for a thundering dunk shot that woke up the
crowd, much of which had come to see the local fellow
who had made good in a big-time basketball program.
Another large chunk of the audience was UNC alumni
in the area, and they too, went home satisfied as
Carolina headed back to Chapel Hill from a long,
difficult road trip with an 81-63 win over Mercer.
But the contest didn't start out as a runaway. In fact,
the Bears held the lad for the first 7:13 building as
much as a seven-point buffer at 12-5 before Rich
Yonakor's layup put the Tar Heels ahead at 13-12.
Carolina went on to lead at the half by 14, 42-28.
Mercer could cut the deficit to no less than 10 early in
the second half, though Carolina head coach Dean
Smith said after the game that he felt the game was still
undecided until the last few minutes.
While the game served as Wood's "homecoming"
Smith tries to schedule games against teams in his
players' home areas Smith said the contest had a
second purpose. "We wanted to experiment with some
things and play a lot of guys."
Wood finished with 15 points and six rebounds. "I
think he wanted to do well," Smith said. "He was coming
"He's a complete ballplayer. I wanted him to shoot
more, but 1 think he wanted to show the people he could
Smith said he felt the game was very physical. "1

...Heels in middle of busy slate
Wood agreed. "It was real rough on the boards. We
weren't expecting it," he said. "It was probably the most
physical game we've played. 1 thought this team was
more physical than Indiana."
So did forward M ike O'Koren, who led Carolina with
19 points and 12 rebounds. "I believe this was the
roughest game of the year," the senior Ail-American
said. "I remember my sophomore year they showed the
(In 1978, Carolina defeated Mercer 73-70 in
Carolina showed a strong pressure defense
throughout the game, often confusing the Bears with
sudden double teams.
"We've got to stay like this, keep the defensive
pressure on," O'Koren said. "If we just get our defense
going, we'll be OK."
Carolina is now 6-3. Mercer drops to 4-5.
In other non-conference games during the semester
break, the Tar Heels finished third in the Phillips
International Tournament in London, England, and
defeated then-No. 4 Indiana, 61-57, in Bloomington,
The game against the Hoosiers, played in front of
17,311 hV Assembly Hall and a national television
audience, was close from the start, with Carolina
holding the game's biggest lead seven points once in
Indiana played without its leading scorer, Mike
Woodson, who is now out for the year with a back
The game was notable for its quick pace, physical
board play and Indiana's constant pressing man-to-man
defense for the entire game.
"Coach (Bobby) Knight stresses all man-to-man
defense," said O'Koren, who played under the Indiana
coach during last summer's Pan American games. "It
was good to play a whole game against man-to-man. It
was like a pro game fast-paced." ,.w , .

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. For the capacity
crowd of 9,000 at University Hall, it was a dream come
For the Virginia Cavaliers, it was the end to years o(
For the North Carolina Tar Heels, it was a too-fitting
end to a day gone bad.
A Friday night and early Saturday morning snow
storm dumped more than a dozen inches of the white
stuff 'on Charlottesville, closing the airport and forcing
the Heels to bus to UVa the long way through
Richmond and on icy roads arriving only 90 minutes
Combine Carolina's playing part of the first half like
they were still trying to unkink from the six-and-a-half
hour trip and a fired-up, hot-shooting Virginia squad
and you end up with UNC's worst start ever in the
Atlantic Coast Conference, at 0-2.
The Tar Heels go after league win No. 1 again at 9
tonight when the Wake Forest Demon Deacons come to
Virginia never trailed, with 7-foot-4 freshman center
Ralph Sampson getting the tip and Jeff Lamp the first
basket. Lamp ended up with 25 points and Sampson
with 21 and nine rebounds.
The first 5:33 was nip-and-tuck with Virginia and
Carolina trading baskets to knot the score at 12. The
Cavs then proceeded to bang home nine straight points
and went up by as many as 15 in the first half before
Carolina cut it to nine, at 47-38, at halftime.
Virginia doubled the lead to 18 points at 70-52 with
12:39 left, and that's when Carolina woke up, getting the
deficit to a workable seven points in four minutes.
But the patented Carolina comeback was not to be.
Untimely turnovers and hurried shots by the Heels kept
Virginia up by at least four. The final: 88-82.
"Even with seven or eight seconds left, I didn't feel
safe," said Cavalier forward M ike Owens, w ho scored 1 4
points on 7-of-10 shooting. "I've seen them win six-or
seven-point games in the last minute."
"Obviously, North Carolina did a great job of coming
back," said Virginia head coach Terry Holland. "They're
a good basketball team. They're very deep and came
after us very hard."
"I thought we played well," said Carolina head coach
Dean Smith. "We were very pleased with our gzrr
except for one thing: I think we rushed the shot a fr
times when we were down. That's my fault. I should tae
slowed things down."
The win for Virginia was the Cas" Tint against
Carolina since the 1976 ACC Championship game.
The Tar Heels will be facing a Wake Forest team
tonight that is also 0-2 in conference play, losing to
Virginia and Maryland. The Deacs will be without
backcourt stallwart Frank Johnson, sitting out this
season as a red-shirt with a foot injury.
Senior Benny McKaig has replaced Johnson in the
starting lineup, joining sophomores Alvis Rogers, Guy
Morgan, Jim Johnstone and Mike Helms.
Carolina's Dave Colescott, who missed the Mercer
game with a sore knee from a spill in the Virginia game,
is likely to be available for the Wake game, said UNC
trainer Marc Davis.

started the year with a 93-76 victory.
The margin was indicative of the entire
game, too, as the Tigers built a lead as
large as 25 points midway through the
second half at 73-48 before 12 straight
UNC points reduced the margin to 73-60
with 6:54 left.
Carolina further narrowed the Tigers'
advantage to 10 points on an Al Wood
jump shot at 5:20, but Clemson regained
its form of earlier in the game and the Tar
Heels could not cut the lead to less than
"We want to congratulate Clemson on
a great performance," UNC coach Dean
Smith said. "I thought John Campbell
was just great inside. He's so strong and
holds off so well in there. Their defense in
the first half was just outstanding."
Campbell, a 6-foot-10, 245-pound
center, scored 28 and gave UNC an
exhibition in pivot play. Just as Clemson
showed it is an improved team from a
year ago, Campbell demonstrated his

widened a 37-31 halftime lead into a 14
point edge in just three minutes at the
start of the second half, said he hopes that
type of surge will continue.

said. "We got the ball in the hole, and we
played good defense. I hope that's going

although the Heels were out-shot from
the field only 48-to-44 percent, Clemson

"I think you saw a great team play out
there," said forward Mike O'Koren, who
scored 16 points to lead UNC.
O'Koren was followed in the scoring by
freshman James Worthy with 15 points
and Wood with 14. For Clemson, after
Campbell's 28, came reserve forward
