6The Daily Tar HeelThursday, February 9,. 1.984
Baseball team set to open season in New Orleans
By LEE ROBERTS
..The .groundhog mav have gone back
into his hole last week, but he forgot to
tell the North Carolina baseball team to
wait for spring.
The Tar Heels, ranked fourth in the
country following last year's second con
secutive ACC championship, head to
New Orleans for a season-opening series
beginning Friday night.
Seven starters return for coach Mike
Roberts' seventh season, led by junior
pitcher Scott Bankhead, sophomore cat
cher, B.J. Surhoff and senior third
baseman Jeff Hubbard.
Roberts was asked if he thought the
Tar Heels could duplicate their school
record, 42-victory season of 1983.
"We're not really setting any win goals,"
he said. "We just want to try to get con
sistency. If we play consistent, fun
damental baseball from the first game,
we'll be in the range of last season."
The players, though, remember May
28 of last year. That was the day they lost
to The Citadel and Delaware in the
NCAA regionals, ending their season and
their chances for an NCAA championship.
"Our main goal is to win the ACC
tourney and get an automatic bid to the
NCAAs," Bankhead said. "We lost out
in the regionals the last two years, and we
want to go to Omaha (the site of the Col
lege World Series)."
Hubbard added to Bankhead's com
ment. "We not only want to get to
Omaha, we want to win it," he said. "I
think we've got a good chance."
Roberts said UNC's record may not be
as good this season as the 42-10 mark of
1983, mainly because the schedule is
tougher this year. The Tar Heels will play
New Orleans, The Citadel, Stetson, Pur
due, South Florida and Florida, all col
lege baseball powers.
"But last year is behind us," Roberts
said. "This is a completely new club, with
a different character."
The loss of two. All-ACC players in
first baseman Pete Kumiega and
designated hitter Drex Roberts will hurt
(the two combined for 40 percent of
UNC's home runs last season), but the
offense looks to be strong nonetheless.
Surhoff will start at catcher after, hit
ting .386 last season, with seven home
runs and 49 RBIs as a freshman. He was
named to the freshman Ail-American
team last season by Baseball America and
has been named first-team Ail-American
as a sophomore by both Baseball
America and Collegiate Baseball. Surhoff
also batted .429 to help the U.S. team to
,the bronze medal in the Pan American
Games last summer and has been named
to the 44-man preliminary roster for the
1984 U.S. Olympic team. He was one of
only eight unanimous selections for the
And if that doesn't say enough about
Surhoff, listen to Roberts talk about his
prized possession: "He is the most gifted
' player in every phase of the game we've
had since I've been here," the coach said.
"He is an outstanding person who is very
humble and who always strives to better
From the sound of things, Surhoff is
about all North Carolina will need this
season. But trie Tar .Heels are not a one
man team. Junior Tim McGee, a fine
defensive player, will also see time behind
Hubbard will start at third after hitting
.380 with team highs in RBIs (56) and
game-winning hits (nine). "Jeff has made
as much progress as .anyone we've had
here," Roberts said? "He has become a
very fine college player."

Wake's Teachey named ACC player of the week
The Associated Press
GREENSBORO Wake Forest
center Anthony Teachey, who led the
Deacons to two overtime wins last
week, has been named the ACC player
of the week.
Teachey, a 6-9, 220-pound senior
from Goldsboro, hit 10 of 1 1 shots from
the field and two free throws for 22
points in Wake Forest's 67-66 overtime
win over Georgia Tech on Feb. 1. He"
also pulled down 13 rebounds and
blocked five shots.
Teachey, the ACC's leading re
bounder, grabbed 11 rebounds in the
Deacon's 76-72 overtime victory over
Clemson on Saturday. He also scored
21 points. ,
Maryland point guard Keith Gatlin
has been named the ACC rookie of the
week for his performance in two league
basketball games last weeV.
Gatlin, a 6-5, 165-pounder from
Grimesland, scored 14 points to help the
13th-ranked Terps beat Virginia, 67-66.
He then scored 19 points in a 71-70,
double-overtime loss to Georgia Tech.
Gatlin, who was the AP high school
basketball player of the year in North
Carolina in 1983, hit 14 of 26 field goals
in the two games and also connected on
five of six free throws. He dished out 14
assists and grabbed nine rebounds.

feature two returning sophomores, Walt
Weiss (.272, 17 steals) at shortstop and
Mike Jedziniak (.288, seven home runs)
at second. Freshman Alvin Taylor should
also see some time at second, Roberts
said. Replacing Kumiega, UNC's all-time
home run leader, at first base will be
" junior-college transfer Paul Will and
freshman Matt Merullo.
The outfield looks set with sophomore
Scott Johnson (.242) in left, sophomore
. Glenn Liacouras (.347) in center and
senior Todd Wilkinson (.266) in right.
Surhoff could see some playing time in
the outfield, along with freshmen Jim
Stone and Devy Bell.
Another strength should be the pit
ching staff, which finished fifth in, the
NCAA in ERA at 2.89 last season.
Bankhead leads the list after last year's
9-0 record and 2.38 ERA earned him
third-team Ail-American honors.
"Scott has a very strong arm for his
size, great mechanics and is a tremendous
competitor," Roberts said. "When he
takes the mound, we always know he'll
give a great effort."
Bankhead will start, along-with
sophomore Roger Williams (6-3 last year,
with the second-best ERA in the nation,
1.19) and junior Greg Karpuk (6-1, 3.24
ERA). The fourth starter will hot be
.'determined until March, when the Tar
Heels begin to play every day. Roberts
said the fourth spot will probably be 'filled
by either sophomore Steve McGuite or
junior-college transfer Bob Mufligan,
both right-handers. Brad Powell who
had a record of 6-4 last seastSn, is
academically ineligible to play this year.
Sophomores Gordon Douglas and Tim
Kirk will be the righty-lefty combination
of short relievers. The two were 1-2,
respectively, in saves in the ACC last
season. Middle relief will probably be
handled by sophomore righthander Bill
Robinson and 'freshman lefty Doug Tqr

the trip to New Orleans because of a sore

Hecht, saying that 38 percent of black freshmen
entering UNC flunk out each year, called for tutorial
programs to alleviate the problem. He also said he ad
vocated a cultural awareness project in the Union to
call attention to minority achievements.
DTH editor candidate Christine Manuel called for
the recruitment of more minority writers on the DTH
staff. "It's important to get people from different
backgrounds to write for the Tar Heel," she said.
Conway stated a new platform during the BSM
forum. He proposed a large-scale readership survey to
find out what students expected from the DTH.
Jeff Hiday was unable to attend the Wednesday
forums because of a death in his immediate family.
He did send representatives to the forums.
