Thursday, November 12, 1981The Daily Tar Heel5 Cavs overcome frustration By NORMAN CANNADA Assistant Spoilt Kdilor Virginia must be a very frustrated football team. The Cavaliers are currently 0-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and 1-7 overall going into Saturday's game with No. 12 North Carolina in Charlottesville. In four of those games, the margin of defeat has been six points or less. Injuries have also hit the Cavs hard this season. Sev eral key players, including the entire starting offensive and defensive backfields, have been out at some point this season because of injuries. Even as Virginia won its first game, against VMI two weeks ago, six players left the game with injuries, two of those players are expected to miss the game against UNC this week. Still, head coach Dick Bestwick said he did not have to worry about getting his team ready to play in the midst of frustration. "If I were coaching anywhere but Virginia, that might be a problem," Bestwick said in a telephone interview Wednesday. "Our players know they're not going to win all the time. We just have to keep trying harder." Injuries have been the biggest problem for the Cavaliers this season. All-America candidate Stuart An derson has been the most notable casualty in recent weeks. Anderson, a linebacker, missed the VMI game with a detached retina that required laser surgery, but practiced for the first time in 10 days Tuesday. Though Anderson is listed as questionable for Saturday's game, Bestwick said he would play. After beating previouslyundefeated VMI two, weeks "ago, the Cays had last week off to heal and prepare for the Tar Heels. "The week off was really good for us," Bestwick said. "We had a lot of players hurt who couldn't play in a game last week that may be ready for the game this week." The Cavs have played in several games this season that were so close that they could have gone either way. "Against Rutgers, Duke and N.C. State we were in the game and had some bad calls go against us," Best wick said. "I'm not saying those calls cost us those games, but it's clear to me that they had an effect." Bestwick said the Cavs have continued to play each opponent tough despite the many forms of adversity. "Our players know the kinds of problems that we've had," Bestwick said. "They have played hard." Bestwick said he has a great deal of respect for the Tar Heels, who are 7-2 and 3-1 in ACC play. 'North Carolina is an outstanding team," he said. "They are good enough to be in the top 10 and probably would be if they were in the Big Ten or Big Eght. ACC teams just have to prove themselves so much more." , L ' ' - I - I , X.

"We'll have to play near-perfect football to beat them. We can't make any mistakes." V-b all wins, will host state tourney By TRACY YOUNG DTH Staff Writer With the NCAIAW state qualifying tournament on the horizon, the UNC volleyball tc? ji defeated William and Mary Tuesday night 15-4, 15-6, 15-2. The win in the Tar Heels' final home match of the season raised their record to 29-6. "I wish we could have had a more in tense match," player Katie Howard said. "But it was a good fundamental match to put everything together." Howard said Carolina concentrated on the areas it had been practicing in for this weekend's tournament in Carmichael Auditorium blocking and playing con sistently regardless of the team on the other side of the net. "I still see things we need to improve on," head coach Beth Miller said. "I just hope we can keep the momentum going until the state tournament." The first game of the match was the best for the Tar Heels; an 1 1-point scoring spree made the win an easy one. William and Mary proved more competitive in the middle game, but the third was also one sided. Unforced errors, which have plagued the Heels during the season, surfaced again near the end of the second game, but Carolina managed to overcome them before they hurt the team. Dream realized Brad Daugherty saw; hisjbpyhppd dream come true Tuesday after announ cing his decision to attend North Carolina on a basketball grant-in-aid. "It's always been a dream of mine to play for a Dean Smith-coached team," Daugherty said. 'Tve had that dream since childhood, and as I grew older the dream became more of a reality." The 6-11, 222-pound senior center from Charles D. Owen High School in Swannanoa was recruited by 174 schools. "It hasn't been fundamental," Howard said about the errors. "It's been mental lapses and communication on the court." y Howard said that was the biggest ma turity lesson to learn in playing college volleyball. "Anytime you see that going on it's usually a lack of concentration," Miller said. "This is the type of thing you some times see more in a match like this one than in a tight match." Another handful of unforced errors plagued Carolina near the start of the third game, but the Heels managed to win and close out the 40-minute match. "This is the time of year we're trying to pull everything together," Miller said. "We're positioning better and hitting bet ter, and that's what we've been working on." Donna Meier had nine kills, five blocks and one service ace against William and Mary,, while Sandy Schmidt had seven kills, two service aces and a single block. Captain Laura Held had four kills and a pair of service aces. Howard and Jenny Watson added four kills apiece. Watson also had one block. . Leslie Meek had two kills, one service ace and a single block, and Linda Karitz had a pair of kills, two blocks and one service ace. Mercedes Ballbe had a service ace and a block. .

"Skill-wise, there is no reason we shouldn't go all the way to the-nationals." Miller described Carolina as anxious, excited and ready to play in this weekend's tournament. "We're accomplishing our goal of con stantly improving," she said. "The ACC tournament was a good measure of our accomplishment. And we have improved since the ACC tournament."

Shaffer dropped UNC guard Dean Shaffer has been dropped from the Tar Heels' 1981-1982 basketball team indefinitely. Carolina coach Dean Smith said Wed nesday that he had suspended Shaffer be cause of irregular class attendance. "Pm disappointed, because Dean has played well in pre-season practice," Smith said. "I hope he will be more regu lar in his class attendance. There is a chance he could be reinstated to the team for the second semester of school" Shaffer, a sophomore from Durham, appeared in 10 of the Heels' 37 games last season. He had been in a battle for a starting spot in the backcourt this fall. Many questions in life demand an an swer. One of them is, "Who is the only half back in NCAA history to gain more yards passing than his quarterback?" There is simply no getting through life without knowing the answer to that one. To satisfy the truth-seeker in us all, the Carolina IM-Rec office is introducing the annual "Sports Trivia Bowl." Patterned after the famous "College Bowl," each Sports Trivia Bowl match will feature two four-member teams that will answer questions of sports trivia. IM's & Clubs By Jackie Blackburn Robert Frye, IM assistant director, said the contest, scheduled for Dec. 1, would have a standard College Bowl format. "There will be a lot of tough questions," he said. Frye, who started the contest here, said he got the idea at the University of Mary land, where it has gained great popularity. Eght teams will be in UNC's competi tion this year. "The reason for only having eight teams is because of the time," Frye said. The teams have already been made up, although two additional teams have been listed in case others are not able to par ticinate. "The questions will cover a variety of areas, and the majority will be on football, basketball and baseball, and there could be some specifically on Carolina," Frye said. "There are close to 1,000 questions," said. "The teams will select envelopes with questions in them." Kenneth Martin, captain of the Baptist Student Union team, said "It's some thing I know I'm interested in, and I'd like to see if I know as much as I think I know." Martin said he did not know what kinds of questions to expect.. "It may be more trivial than I expect," he said. "It all depends on how trivial it is.. Martin said he would anticipate ques tions like, "Who was the only Carolina basketball player who was legally blind." The answer: George Glamack, who was known as the Blind Bomber in the 1940s. The objective of the Sports Trivia Bowl is more than mere entertainment. "It's to test people's knowledge and memory," Frye said. "We hope it will become an annual event," he said. "At Maryland it was very well received." V For those who simply must know the answer to the question about the halfback with more yards passing than his quarter back, it was Don Clark of Ohio State, who in 1956 had 88 yards passing. His quarterback had 86. Notes: Today is the deadline for volley ball captains to schedule games for next week. Friday, all IM unit managers should check in with the IM office for updated information.
