Knight could imagine;
only Smith could know
ATLANTA Mike Giomi's two foul shots had given In
diana a four-point lead and North Carolina all of five
seconds to do something about it. Bobby Knight called a
timeout to settle his players down, to tell them not to foul,
not to do anything tdlebpardize what seconds later would be
an upset of the NCAA Tournament's top seed.
The Hoosiers' coach stopped the clock to talk strategy,
but not until venturing a look at the man on the other end of
the scorer's table. Knight had just shot Dean Smith's dog in
the back. And he knew it.
He could imagine the hurt, the self-accusative second
guessing, the it's not supposed to end this way, this time,
with this team that would be suppressed with great dignity,
perhaps making it all the more painful. He could imagine it,
but he couldn't know.
Only Smith could know.
"I wanted it for the seniors most of all," the North
Carolina coach said immediately after the loss to a roomful
of reporters about as eager to ask questions as he was to
answer them. "They're great representatives of the Universi
ty, they're good student athletes and you can write that . I
know it's late, you want to get on, so I'll get on.
It was Smith who had postponed celebrating his only na
tional championship in New Orleans two years ago to find
Georgetown coach John Thompson and make certain his
good friend was all right. Smith had been there before the
year before against Indiana in the 1981 NCAA championship
gamey four years before that against Marquette in the
And he was there again Thursday in the Omni.
He was there again and people wanted to know why. Why
did North Carolina shoot 42 percent from the field had it
taken the Hoosiers too lightly? Why was Michael Jordan on
the bench for 12 minutes of the first half wasn't the risk of
a third foul worth a better chance at erasing a four-point
deficit? Why were the Hoosiers able to move the ball around
and get the shots they wanted (and made 65 percent of the
Why it all happened was subject to opinion. That the Tar
Heels had finished the season a week earlier than expected
"It's not going to be any fun until next year," sophomore
Brad Daugherty said. "The guys who don't have a next year
that's what I feel bad about. Sam (Perkins), Matt (Doher
ty) and Cecil (Exum) don't have a next year."
For the three players who played on teams with the win
ningest cumulative four-year record in ACC history, a career
at North Carolina had just ended. The disbelief had just
"I never really thought about losing," Perkins said. "I felt
like we had the ability to go all the way."
Smith had expressed his frustration repeatedly during the
season with the public's conception that the Tar Heels were
supposed to win every game, a mentality he said resulted in
somewhat of a can't-win situation for his team.
In the minds of many, North Carolina was supposed to
win 28 games this year 22 against teams eventually receiv
ing bids to the NCAA or NIT tournaments. It was expected
to go undefeated in regular-season play in the nation's best
conference, a league that had all but one of its members in a
wire service Top 20 poll at some point in the season and won
nearly 90 percent of its non-conference games.
The Tar Heels weren't expected to lose to the Razorbacks
in Pine Bluff, Ark., or to an incredibily motivated and equal
ly talented Duke team in the ACC Tournament. They certain-'
ly weren't supposed to get knocked out of the NCAAs in the
"We had a great team,".Doherty said. "A lot of great
teams don't win a national championship. You gotta get
And so many teams do. Georgia did it last season, hitting
two of every three shots against North Carolina in the East
Regional final, and then having that percentage cut in half
against 1983's luckiest of the lucky, N.C. State, in the first
game of the Final Four. Indiana did Thursday, the luck
lasting until a two-point loss to Virginia Saturday.
It's rare that the team that's truly the nation's best is ever
the same one cutting down the nets after the final game of
the season. But that's what makes the NCAA Tournament
so exciting. It builds dynasties as fast as it destroys them.
"All year long we've been ranked one and people have
been ready for us," Smith said.
All year long never ends at North Carolina. It's hard to
imagine that it ever will.
Lacrosse team uses tenacious
defense to top No. 8 Navy, 1 1-4

North Carolina scored six fourth-quarter goals to
finish off eighth-ranked Navy in a smoothly efficient
11-4 win Saturday at Fetzer Field. ,
The Tar Heels frustrated Navy with a superb
defensive effort backed by the outstanding play of
goalkeeper Tim Mealey. Defensemen Tom Haus,
Randy Cox and Chris Walker barricaded the Mid
shipmen in their own territory and whenever Navy
was able to work the ball up the field, Mealey proved
unbeatable in the cage.
North Carolina's offense was slow in attacking the
Navy defense, but finally wore the Midshipmen
down. UNC led 3-1 at the intermission, witbNavy
able to stay close by controlling the ball and causing
the Tar Heels to rush their offense.
The Tar Heels dominated possession of the ball in
the second half. Five unanswered goals broke open a
tight game as UNC's scoring regulars took over.
Junior Mac Ford dished out three second-half
assists to go with a fourth quarter score, while senior
Brent Voelkel scored two consecutive goals in the
final period, both on Ford assists, then assisted Andy
Smith on the next score as UNC moved out to an 8-2
"Navy's pressure caused us some problems early
on," Voelkel said of the Tar Heels slow start. "We
got a couple of opportunities later and took advan
tage of a couple of unsettled situations."
The Midshipmen were called for just five penalties,
but North Carolina capitalized on extra-man oppor
tunities three times, including twice in the fourth
quarter goals. .
"The extra-man opportunity (offense) had to be
worked on ." said sophomore attacker Joey Seivold,
who had a goal and an assist for UNC. "We try to
get the best shot possible, which means a little more
Wake falls to Houston,

ST. LOUIS The Houston Cougars, sparked by the inspired
play of 7-foot Akeem Olajuwon, earned their third straight trip
to the NCAA Final Four Sunday by beating Wake Forest 68-63
in the championship game of the Midwest Regional.
Olajuwon scored 29 points and blocked several shots in key
situations as the fifth-ranked Cougars held off, then finally pull
ed away from the 19th-ranked Deacons.
Houston, 31-4, and losers to N.C. State in last year's col
legiate championship game, will meet Virginia in the semifinals
of the championship round next Saturday in Seattle.
The other semifinal will send third-ranked Kentucky, Mideast
Regional champion, against West Regional champion No. 2
Virginia upset Indiana 50-48, and Kentucky defeated No. 6 Il
linois 54-51 in Saturday's regjonals.
Wake Forest, 23-9 and representing the Atlantic Coast Con
ference, twice trailed by just two points late in the game, the
final time at 57-55 with 5:24 left. But Michael Young and Ola
juwon hit consecutive baskets to give Houston a 61-55 lead and
control of the game.
ATLANTA The memory of Ralph Sampson has not been
' erased in Charlottesville, Va.; but the Cavaliers have proved, at
least, that basketball does go on. Kenton Edelin, Sampson's
understudy the past two seasons, scored five straight points in
the final Vi minutes to give Virginia its two-point victory over
"I guess coaches are crazy," Virginia Coach Terry Holland
said. "People were saying Ralph is leaving, but I was crazy
enough to think we'd be back in the Final Four."
Edelin's run started when he stole the ball at midcourt from
Indiana's Dan Dakich, then dribbled in alone for a layup that
gave Virginia a 45-44 lead. Rick Carlisle led the Cavs, 21-11,
who finished sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season,
with 19 points. Mike Giomi and Uwe Blab each had 12 for the
"Edelin's steal was absolutely crucial," said Coach Bobby
Knight of Indiana, 22-9. "Instead of perhaps being up by three
points and having as much as 20 seconds off the clock, they get
Saturday's game was the third straight game in
which the defense kept the opposition in check for
the 2-1 and fourth-ranked Tar Heels. Only top-ranked
Syracuse (ten goals) has been able to break into dou
ble figures against UNC ,
Junior Tim Mealey's play in the cage against Navy
was outstanding. Mealey allowed just three scores
and made 18 saves. He also did a good job directing
the ball to the midfielders and made several daring
runs out of the crease as he attacked Navy's charge.
A large part of Mealey's success must be given to
the defensemen in front of him. Along with Haus,
Cox and Walker, freshman Boyd Harden and
sophomore John Murphy combined to take Navy
out of its offense.
"They tried to slow things down, but they couldn't
do anything against the zone," Cox said. "Chris
(Walker) knocked down a lot of their passes that
would've been shots if they'd gotten through, and
Timmy (Mealey) came up with some important saves
to keep them from getting momentum."
A good indication of just hbw effective the North
Carolina defense was at cutting off Navy's passes was
Navy's scoring. All four goals were unassisted shots,
meaning Navy's passing game wasn't responsible for
a single score.
"It was just hustle," Joey Seivold said of the win,
which justified UNC's high ranking despite a 1-1
record coming into Saturday's game. "We wouldn't
let them clear the ball. They wanted to slow it down,
but they couldn't even get a shot."
UNC plays Delaware at home Wednesday after
noon, but next Saturday's date with No. 5 Maryland
is on the players' minds after the methodical
breakdown of Navy.
"We are really starting tq play well as a team,"
Cox said. "We're improving every day and learning
from every game."
