Monday, November 7, 1983The Daily Tar Heel5
Peterson, Perkins lead White past Blue
By MICHAEL PERSINGER
Fresh from its tournament victory in Greece, the North
Carolina basketball team continued its exhibition season Satur
day with the White squad defeating the Blue 92-84 in the first of
two intrasquad scrimmages.
But more important than the final score was the question that
Saturday's game answered.
With four starters returning from last year's 28-8 squad, the
Tar Heels carried over a strong nucleus, but point guard Jim
Braddock graduated, leaving the most crucial position in the
North Carolina scheme up for grabs.
. There are three candidates Steve Hale, Braddock's backup
as a freshman last season; Buzz Peterson, a junior who is
capable of playing either the point or shooting guard; and highly
touted freshman Kenny Smith.
Hale, showing no signs of the loss of confidence that ham
pered his shooting late last season, put in a strong performance
for the White team, connecting on six of 10 shots from the field
and recording a perfect six-for-six mark from the free-throw line
for 18 points. Hale added two assists, but turned the ball over
six times in 35 minutes.
Peterson hit eight of 13 field goals and led the White in scor
ing with 23 points. He chipped in four assists, but committed
eight turnovers while switching between 'point and shooting
But Smith turned in the most impressive offensive perfor
mance from the point, tallying 18 points on eight-of-14 shooting
while dishing out eight assists. He turned the ball over four times
for the Blue.
"I didn't think Kenny showed any signs of nervousness in
front of his first crowd," coach Dean Smith said. "The dunks
(Kenny Smith had two) is what people will remember, but what
I liked better was his judgment on the break. He didn't try to
make the spectacular play; he just came down and made the
Coach Smith said he had not considered who would start at
point guard in the upcoming season, stressing that it was much
too early to make such a decision.
"Peterson and Hale are definitely ahead of Kenny defen
sively," Smith said. "I've never had a ballplayer come in here
and be a good defensive player from the start. It takes a lot of
drills and a lot of practice to become a good defensive player,
and it will take time for Kenny to get to that point."
Smith said he hoped to choose his top eight players soon, but
admitted that this may be one of the deepest teams he has had in
"Players like (Michael) Jordan and (Sam) Perkins, it's hard
to find depth for those guys," he said.
Jordan led both teams in scoring with 35 points on 16-of-26
shooting for the Blue, while Perkins had 22 points and six re
bounds for the White.
Coach Smith said the Tar Heels have put in all of the defenses
they want except for one, and he said the scramble defense out
of the man-to-man was the reason for a total of 46 turnovers for
both teams in the game.
"We had a hard time handling the scramble," he said.
"There's really not much you can do with that defense, and in
all fairness we haven't put in the offense for it yet."
The Tar Heels play a second Blue-White scrimmage after the
Duke football game Nov. 19.

ending on a 6-yard scoring strike from Eppley to tight
end K.D. Dunn. Paulling's extra point put Clemson
ahead 13-0 with 3:45 to play in the quarter.
North Carolina's only points came on the following
possession. Barwick capped an eight-play, 65-yard
drive with a 27-yard field goal. However, Clemson
countered when Paulling added his third field goal of
the day, a 28-yarder, to make the score 16-3 with
12:34 left in the game.
Ford led a jubilant group of Clemson players into
the visitors' locker room after the game.
"I don't know if we could have played the game
much better than we did," he said. "We had three
long drives, and we got a touchdown pass on one.
"Our people played extremely well," he said.
"Back during the week, we told our people that it was
going to be man-on-man, and I think our people
whipped them man-on-man.
"North Carolina's got about the best athletes you
ever want to play, and any time you go into their place
and win, it has to make you very happy."
The Tigers are now 6-0-1 against North Carolina in
seven games in Chapel Hill since 1971, when the Tar
Heels won, 26-13. The Clemson victory was also its
third straight over UNC dating back to 1980.

Clemson has Tar Heels ' number
By FRANK KENNEDY
Assistant Sports Editor
It was not a scene that many (if any)
North Carolina football fans would have
cared for. And the few who did see it
the alumni in the Kenan Fieldhouse
lounge certainly were not smiling.
The victorious Clemson players took
their time about getting into the locker
room after Saturday's 16-3 win, and
chose instead to let anyone and everyone
know how they felt about topping UNC
again. They danced, they gave each
other high-fives and they made obscene
gestures to the onlooking North Carolina
Wes Mann, the Tigers' backup left
guard, pointed to the far side of the field
house where the dejected Tar Heels were
coming off the field. "How do you guys
feel about the Bluebonnet Bowl?" he
William Devane, Clemson's backup
defensive guard to Ail-American William
Perry, and probably the best second
string lineman in the country, was the last
Tiger to enter the tiny visitor's locker
room. It was appropriate, considering
that once again it had been the Clemson
defensive unit that had found a way to
hold the Tar Heels in check when nobody
An exuberant Danny Ford appeared
moments later before the throngs of
reporters, and the Clemson coach praised
his team's efforts, and also had a few
choice words for Tar Heel coach Dick
Crum. "Sometimes when your mouth
overloads your rear end, you get in trou
ble," he said, referring to a newspaper ar
ticle quoting Crum as saying the Tigers

had "bought" their 1981 national cham
pionship. Inside, the overcrowded locker room
was filled with the smoke of cigars that
had been passed out to the 99 players and
umpteen coaches, trainers and managers.
"We whipped them good," one ex
uberant player yelled.
The Tigers were making it perfectly
clear that they had won more than just
another football game. Sure, they were
gloating, in as many ways as they could,
but the fact remains that they do seem to
have the Tar Heels', number.
UNC has now lost three in a row to
Clemson, including five of the last six,
and has not won against the Tigers in
Kenan Stadium since 1971.
The Tar Heels have been the highest
scoring team in the ACC the last three
years, but have managed only 24 points in
12 quarters against Clemson.
Six times the Tar Heels penetrated
the Clemson 35-yard line, but came away
with only a Field goal. They penetrated
the 10 twice in the final quarter and came
Redshirt freshman Ray Williams ex
plained why the Tigers were so de
termined to stop the Tar Heels any way
they could. "Maybe you could call us
spoilers," he said, "but anything
' Carolina wants, we don't want them to
" have it. "
"Although the probationary Tigers
couldn't go anywhere if they wanted to,
they may still win the "unofficial" ACC
championship. The Tigers will conclude

conference play next week in Death
Valley against Maryland the official
conference leader and a Clemson win
would give Ford's team its 19th con
secutive league win.
Hurting most were the UNC seniors,
who have been on four preseason teams
picked to win the league title, but have
come up short every time. "This was my
last chance," Tar Heel wide receiver
Mark Smith said of the defeat. "Some of
these other guys have a couple more
chances (to win the ACQ."
No one, not Smith, not quarterback
Scott Stankavage, could explain the Tar
Heels' inability to cross the goal line. But
Stankavage did credit the Tiger defense
with making the plays when it had to.
"I was impressed with the quality of
play on the field," Stankavage said.
"They played hard and we played hard,
and I have a lot of respect for Clemson."
But the loss leaves a bitter taste in the
mouths of not only the Tar Heels, but
also of the six bowl scouts who attended
the game. With half of the fourth quarter
remaining, scouts from at least two of the
major bowls had sneaked out of the press
box. And by the final gun, only the
representatives from the Gator Bowl
seemed serious about the host team.
The Tar Heels have played in the Jack
sonville, Fla., affair twice in the last four
years, and a return trip quite possibly
against the likes of Florida or Florida
State might sit well with the Gator
folks, who have to fill an 80,000-seat
