Smith, players (but not fans)
take North-South seriously
Gymnasts score the high marks,
but still can't beat powerful W. Va.
From Staff reports
North Carolina's gymnastics program has
come a long way in a few years. Not only is the
talent deeper than it has ever been, but team
scores are improving and the Tar Heels are
competing with opponents of the highest
Take, for example, Saturday's meet against
national powers West Virginia and Jackson
ville State. UNC's women put forth their best
effort ever in tallying 170 points, a mark indi
cative of excellence in women's collegiate com
petition. Yet, despite the high marks, the Tar Heels
were not able to overcome the 173.4 effort by
the Mountaineers, the nation's No. 4 team in
1982. They were able to top Jacksonville State,
which could manage only 164.85.
The difference between first and second was
on the balance beam, where numerous falls
hurt UNCs chances at a victory.
But Coach Derek Galvin noted that the
squad is getting steadily closer to the all
around excellence it will need to successfully
compete in the postseason.
"We hit on three out of four events. This
was a good meet; the caliber of gymnastics was
very high. We had good, clean form," Galvin
Sophomore Anne Ruppert, who is coming
back this year after a nagging ankle injury
hindered her efforts last year, had her best per
formance as a collegiate, scoring a 9.0 on the
floor, 8.5 on the beam and taking fifth overall
As usual, Karen Kaiser led the way for the
Tar Heels with a third-place finish at 34.35.
Kaiser won the vaulting event, while taking
third on the bars and tying for fourth on the
UNCs dominance on the vault continued as
Allison Hunter took second, and Tammy
Gilbert took third in a tie with Christine
Only two runners on the UNC men's track
team placed at the VMI Winter Relays Satur
day in Lexington, Va., but coach Hubert West
was optimistic about his team's effort.

"We still feel we're coming along," West
said Sunday. "The guys felt like they were a
little tired from practice, but they competed
well against the competition. They're looking
forward to another opportunity.
Glenn Sparrow finished fourth for UNC in
the 3,000-meter run with a time of 8:22.9.
Brett Plummer was eighth in the 800.
The meet included teams from N.C. State,
Virginia, Pittsburgh, East Tennessee State,
Georgia and South Carolina.
The women's track team raced in the Prince
ton Relays in New Jersey this weekend, and the
results of two of the performers Joan
Nesbit and Shunta Robinson turned in
typically excellent performances.
Nesbit raced in the two mile against such
strong teams as Perm State and Maryland and
she led the race from the gun. She won with a
time of 10.06.29 (her best) and came within .08
seconds of the meet record.
Freshman Robinson placed second, in the
shot put and in doing so set a new school
record 44' Va' her best by about two
feet. Katy Lichota placed sixth in the shot.

Morehead, Kelley Houk, Alisa Murray and
Nan Rochat, ran in the second fastest heat and

CHARLOTTE It's the American dream carried over
onto the court. Anybody can get to the top if they want it
enough. Call it basketball mobility. And watch the North
Chaminade's upset over the then-No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers
is only two months old, and already it has tired as the
Cinderella story with Converse Hi-Tops instead of a glass
slipper. But people still talk about it. Underdog is alive and
well in college basketball.
Those directly involved in last weekend's festivities in
Charlotte will be the first to say so.
Citadel guard Regan Truesdale: "You can have a good
chance to beat any team. They're people just like us."
Furman forward George Singleton: Upsets can happen
any time or any day. I never went into a game with the in
tention of keeping it close. Close isn't good enough."
Sam Perkins after the game with The Citadel: "If we
weren't mentally prepared we could have had a serious ball
game on our hands."
, Michael Jordan: "It can make their season if they beat
us. And they came ready to play. That's what I think we
gotta do be ready to play everygame."
It would be hard to" find a player willing to admit that
winning was an unrealistic goal in a given situation, i.e.
Truesdale on Friday night and Singleton on Saturday. And
it would be just as hard to find a player saying a certain
game was over before it even began, i.e. Perkins and Jordan
after the Tar Heels 81-36 drubbing of The Citadel.
So the players take it seriously. Then there are the
coaches ' .
With UNC sitting on the 30-plus point lead that it had en
joyed throughout most of the second half in the game
against The Citadel, the Bulldogs' coach Les Robinson call
ed his third timeout of the period. At the same time, North
Carolina's Dean Smith was on his feet in a restrained fren
zy, protesting over what he thought should have been a
' charging call on The Citadel.
Well they say the game's not over until the clock's show
Smith had the Tar Heels come out running, trapping and
even full-court pressing the next night against Furman. All
this without the 30-second clock. And the Paladin's coach,
Jene Davis, a former assistant at Indiana, came as close to
breaking his self-set precedent of man-to-man coverage as
any graduate of the Bobby Knight school of defense could.
So the coaches take it seriously. Then there are the fans.
In the second half of the UNC-Citadel game, the public
address announcer asked ever-so-casually if the owner of a
brown Monte Carlo would please come to the Coliseum of
fice his car was running. While a scan of the teams'
benches showed all eyes on a game that was far from a
thriller, the crowd voiced more enthusiasm than it had since
Jordan took the floor in pre-game intros.
At the party for the press across the way following the
first night's action, a Paladin alumna approached Furman
sports information director Rick Covington. "I'll be damn
ed if I came here just to watch basketball," she said. "I
haven't even had a chance to wear any of my new outfits."
Imagine that. Going to the North-South Doubleheader
and having to watch basketball. With old clothes.
So the fans take it ... well, how do they take it?
UNC has participated in the North-South Doubleheader
for 25 years now; it's a Tar Heel tradition to defend the Old
North State's bragging rights to the Carolinas. But the con
tract expires of this year, and what lies ahead remains to be
Smith said that he would sit down with UNC Athletic
Director John Swofford this spring to talk about the
doubleheader "as we know it." So the format or some of
the teams participating, including North Carolina, may
change. But in all probability, UNC will be there in 1984.
"We've enjoyed the hospitality that Charlotte always
seems to provide," Smith said. "I think it's good for our
team, a break in the conference action. And a weekend
where the parents can come and watch their kids play
So the parents take it seriously. Probably.
