The Tar Heels took the lead for good
on an 18-foot Kenny Smith jumper with
17:50 to play, but the outcome wasn't
decided until the freshman point guard
drove the lane for a layup out of the four
corners offense with 1:14 to play. That
basket put North Carolina up by four,
and a series of Wake Forest misses forced
the Deacons to foul.
The Tar Heels made five of eight free
throws down the stretch to ice the win.
Wake could manage only a Mark Cline
free throw in the last minute, and that
came after Doherty was called for an in
tentional foul with seven seconds remain
ing. The Tar Heels return home to Car
michael Auditorium after three Atlantic
Coast Conference road wins over teams
ranked in the Top 20, but Dean Smith
warned against overconfidence.
"What you have to keep in mind and
what I'll tell my team is that when they
say 'Hey, we're going home,' that's the
same thing Virginia said last year," Dean
Smith said. "They had been on the road
for about a month, they were 3-0 in the
ACC, and they said 'Hey, we're going
home to Virginia.' Then Carolina came in
and won. In fact we had them (down) 23
with nine minutes to play.
"The task now is for our team to go
home and play with the same intensity
that we play with on the road, and not try
to do the sensational things, but just stick
with our game the way we did today in
the second half." '
With Kentucky's 82-63 loss to Auburn
Friday night, the Tar Heels are virtually
assured the top spot in both the AP and
UPI polls this week.
"I thought we were No. 1 in the polls,"
Deam Smith said. "Sports writers are
smarter than coaches, and I think I could
have gotten us to No. 1 in the coach's poll
last week. I had us No. 4, and if I'd mov
ed us to No. 1, that would have been
When asked who he had ranked ahead
of the Tar Heels, Smith replied, "I had
Wake Forest No. 1, Maryland No. 2 and
State No. 3." And then he smiled.

Brown scores 4 1 points as UNC defeats
Cavaliers'and stays unbeaten in ACC
From staff reports
The North Carolina women's basketball team
defeated 20th-ranked Virginia, 85-72, in Car
michael Auditorium Saturday, with Tresa Brown
pouring in a school-record 41 points for the win
ners. Brown raised her league-leading scoring
average to 23.6 points per game with the effort.
North Carolina has won four straight games
and is the only remaining unbeaten team in the
ACC at 3-0. The Tar Heels are 12-2 overall. The
Cavaliers fell to 12-2 and 4-1 with the loss.
A string of 15 UNC points in a row midway
through the second half broke the game open for
the Tar Heels.
Brown's 41 points came on 16-of-21 shooting
from the field and nine of 1 1 at the foul line. The
record she broke was her own, 38, set last Mon
day night against Fairleigh Dickinson.
Pam Leake added 14 for the Tar Heels, in
cluding 12 in the second half, and Pam Ham
mond finished with 11. Cathy Grimes, the ACCs
second leading scorer, finished with 20 points to
lead the Cavaliers.
"Our intensity in the game was the
difference," Brown said of the win. "It was a
conference game and a game we had to win. We
were the only two teams left who were undefeated
in the conference, so we really wanted to win the
Brown said she doesn't know if the 1983-84
UNC team is the best she has played on in her
four years here.
"It's hard to say which team was better
because they took place at different times,"
Brown said. "Each year there are different
players and a different program, so you can't say
one is better than another.
"But, this team played one of the best games
Saturday night that it is capable of playing."
Brown said the team's play to this point in the
season makes it deserving of a spot in the Top 20.
The Tar Heels now own victories over two ranked
teams in the last week and a half. UNC beat
Maryland, 81-80, Jan. 7 in Chapel Hill.
"Our team is 12-2 now, and we've played a
schedule that has competition from within the
Top 20," Brown said. "If you ask me if we
belong in the Top 20, I say, 'Why not?' "
The Tar Heels travel to Raleigh Tuesday for a
7:30 p.m. game with N.C. State.
Sam Perkins led North Carolina with 17 points and 11 rebounds in Saturday's win.
The UNC wrestling team came up short in its
bid to defend the team title at the Virginia Duals
tournament at Hampton, Va. After defeating
Ohio State, 21-20, in their opening match, the Tar
Heels were defeated by Big 10 powerhouse
Wisconsin, 22-13. The Badigers also defeated
UNC in late December.
In the Ohio State match, North Carolina's
Chip McArdle lost his first dual match of the
season to Tussell at 118 pounds. Wins by John
Aumiller (126), Tim Plott (142), Tad Wilson
(158), Bill Gaffney (167) and Bob Shriner (190)
led the team to victory,
Wisconsin, undefeated and No. 3 in the nation,
won two of the last three matches and tied in the
other one to pull out the victory. McArdle, Plott,
John Cardi (150) and Gaffney all won their mat
ches for UNC.
North Carolina's fifth-ranked women's swim
ming team finished third in the Longhorn Invita
tional behind Southern Cal. and Texas while the
men's swimming team lost to Tennessee 62-41
over the weekend.
In Texas, the women managed to win four
events against some of the best competition in the
country. Southern Cal is ranked No. 3 and Texas
is ranked No. 4.
Sue Walsh, an Ail-American from Hamburg,
N.Y., won both the 100-yard backstroke and the
200-yard backstroke. Betsy Mitchell, a freshman,
finished second to Walsh in the 100-yard race and
was fourth in the 200-yard race.
The 100-yard breaststroke was won by UNC's
Jenny Strickland in 1:05.2. Strickland, Walsh,
Mitchell and Amy Pless won the 400-yard medley
relay in a time of 3:50.5.
The women beat out No. 8 Auburn, No. 7
Southern Illinois and unranked Kansas for third
In Knoxville, Tenn., Eric Ericson participated
in three of UNC's four victories. Ericson won the

NCAA and Pan American Games
110-meter hurdles champion. Kingdom, a
favorite to make the 1984 U.S. Olympic
team, set a new meet record and qualified

In addition, Kingdom won the 50-yard
hurdles with a time of 6.0, and was nam

meet in Boston. . . . Both the men's and
women's teams travel to Johnson City,

The North Carolina gymnastics team
overcame first-meet jitters and pulled to
gether in the final events of the meet to
defeat William and Mary in Fetzer Gym
Friday night, 167.60-161.80.
The Tar Heels, who opened with shaky
performances in the vault and uneven
parallel bars, overcame the rocky start1
with consistent performances in the
balance beam and strong performances in
the floor exercise to gain the victory. The
Tar Heels led only 83.00-82.45 at the
Tammy Gilbert finished first all:around
for North Carolina with a total score of
34.70. Freshman Barbi Callahan took
second all-around in the meet for the Tar
Heels with 34.05 points. Callahan also
finished first in the balance beam with an
8.80 and Chris Thorne won the vault with
"We're fortunate we were able to win
"with that kind of start," coach Derek
Galvin said. "I don't think we'll ever be
in the position again where we can per
form so poorly on the first two events and
Galvin said nervousness was one of the
major reasons for the poor start.
"I thought we were in trouble, but for
tunately we were able to turn it around,"
he said. "We had so many freshmen out
there who had never competed before.
We just got together after the vault and
the bars and discussed what was going on
and what we had left to go.
"We had just finished bars, and I had
expected a ' lot stronger performance
there," Galvin added, "but we reached
such a major turning point in what we're
capable of doing. It was a real transition
point in the maturity of this whole team.
It's like everything just clicked."
Captain Anne Ruppert said the girls on
the team seemed nervous at first, but she
was very pleased by the way they all pull
ed out of it after the first two events.
"I was pretty nervous," freshman
Elizabeth Boulton, an all-around per
former, said, "but I learned a lot, and I
know I've got a lot of hard work ahead of
me now. I did a little worse than I ex
pected, but I did get more relaxed as the
night went on."
Even all-around winner, Gilbert, ad
mitted she was nervous but didn't feel it
affected her performance. "For a first
meet, I'm pretty satisfied, but then there's
always lots of room for improvement,"
The team should be able to improve its
score by four to five points later in the
season, Galvin said. "With the strength
of our region, we'll need between 172
(points) and 173 to get invited to the
NCAAs, and that's our major goal," he
Galvin said the team was tight and ner
vous in the vault, the opening event.
"We're a lot better team on the vault
than we showed," he said. "We should
be able to pick up two points there
The disappointing performance in the
uneven parallel bars was largely because
of routines with increased skill levels,
Galvin said. "We had a lot of high
difficulty elements that we missed," he.
"100 percent; litIarjjtitetiQC:
practice. The bars will be stronger, and
we could pick up two points there by the
end of the season."
Galvin said he was pleased by the
team's performance in the balance beam,
an area he predicted as North Carolina's
strong point earlier in the year. The Tar
Heels can still pick up a full point on the
beam just by improving their concentra
tion, he added.
Galvin also said that he was pleased
with the girls' routines in the floor ex
ercise. "Their dance looked very good,
and there were no major deductions," he
said. "All the mistakes were on easily cor
rected areas that could raise our score by
as much as a point with more practice."
Galvin said he was especially happy
with the number of fans who showed up
for the first meet. More than 300 people
braved travelers' advisories and sub
freezing temperatures to pack into Fetzer
Gym, leaving standing room only. Galvin
said the large, vocal crowd was a pleasant
