UNC guard Pam Leake scored 19 of
her 27 points in the second half,
including the game-winning 16-foot
jumper with 15 seconds to play, to lead .
the Tar Heels to a 77-74 comeback win
over N.C. State in Carmichael Audit
UNC trailed by as many as 1 1 points
in the first half after going 6:30 without
a point and committing 13 turnovers,
but the Tar Heels used a trapping half
court pressure defense to cut the lead
to five, 33-28, at the half.
"We had some problems in the first
half, but when we got down by 11 it
wasn't the type of thing where you think
you will stay down," Leake said. "We
had them down in the second half, and
they kept fighting back."
Leake's jumper at the 15:34 mark of
the second half gave UNC its first lead
since the early going at 42-41, and
moments later Tia Poindexter put UNC
in the lead for good at 44-43. The Tar
Heels shot 71.4 percent from the floor
in the second half to raise their game
average to 57.1. State shot 49.2 from
North Carolina forced the Wolfpack
into 27 turnovers 18 in the second
half and UNC coach Jennifer Alley
said the lesson she learned in the Tar
Heels' 81-69 loss to State Dec. 29 led
to the trapping strategy.
"We knew after the game in Raleigh
that we had had big gaps in our defense,
and they were able to exploit them,"
Alley said. "We wanted to trap and put
pressure on the ball and close the holes
as best we could. Their guards are so
quick and can handle the ball so well
that we had to compensate somehow."
The Wolfpack cut a UNC Jead that
had been as big as eight down to one
on Trena Trice's follow shot at the 1:05
mark. State's Robyn Mayo intercepted
a Marlene List pass and was fouled with
43 seconds to play. She made both ends
of the one-and-one, but the referee ruled
that she had stepped over the line on
the second shot.
That set up Leake's 16-footer from
left of the circle.
Pam Hammond added a meaningless
free throw after the buzzer to provide
the final margin.
"I was waiting for (the last shot),"
Leake said. "I had been wanting to
shoot it for a while. It was there, it was
wide open, and all that was left was
to shoot it. It felt good the entire time."
This wasn't the first time a Leake
jumper has beaten the Wolfpack. Her
shot with 1 second left in Raleigh last
season gave the Tar Heels a one-point
"I'm not sure that I wanted the shot
taken that early," Alley said of last

the Black Student Movement and to

Bane said spotters were at the front

Rodney Bean, an engineer in the
RTVMP department. "It's a golden
opportunity for STV. It's not only
entertaining, but it's a learning expe
rience for the students."
STV is hoping to simulcast the
production with WXYC. Creech said
this would help reach more people
because not everyone has access to
cable. "But it will be more effective if
you can see it."
The show will begin at 8 p.m. and
last an hour and a half. A moderator
and three student panelists will partic
ipate. These positions have not been
filled, and Boyle said suggestions were
welcome. "We are looking for a cross
section of students on campus to ask
educated questions," he said.
Boyle said panelists would not be
announced until the day of the show
to avoid "hounding by the candidates."
After the panelists ask the candidates
questions, students will also have the
opportunity to call in. "This has the
potential to be the most exciting portion
of the show," Boyle said.
Between each round, pre-taped inter

N.C.'s first two-term governor
says 'continuity' benefited state
First in a three-part series.
By SCOTT WHARTON
In November, former Gov. Jim
Hunt lost his U.S. Senate bid to
incumbent Sen. Jesse Helms. Hunt left
the Executive Mansion Jan. 5 to return
to the practice of law. In a Dec. 28
interview in Raleigh with The Daily Tar
Heel, the former governor reflected on
his two terms in the state's highest office.
DTH What do you see as your
biggest accomplishments as Governor?
Hunt I would say making North
Carolina the most attractive state in the
country for economic growth, attracting
new jobs and businesses, and leading
this state to the most significant
progress in education during any eight
years in our history.
DTH Any areas in which you feel
you failed or would like to have done
Hunt Well, I don't think there were
any areas left blank. We did not move
as quickly in some areas as I would like
to have moved. As I said . . . the
recession held us back in terms of some
things I wanted to do in education, but
I think that we are getting there, a
couple or three years later than I had
hoped. One area in particular is that
I had hoped that by now we would be
able to have most of our pre-school
children who need help, whose parents
are poor and who need to be in good
child day care centers, in those centers.
DTH How has gubernatorial
succession benefited you as governor of
Hunt I think it has benefited the
state. For example, we would not be
a national leader in microelectronics if
we had not had succession. That was
something I put in at the end of my
first term and at the beginning of my
second term. In the first term I came
to understand why we needed it what
kind of tremendous opportunities it
would provide our state in getting ahead
of other states as we move ahead in
the new technologies. Without succes
sionr that would never, have happened.
Thus, thousands arid thousands of jobs
in this state would not be here. The N.C.
School of Science and Mathematics was
an idea we got started in my first term,
but it had just gotten off the ground.
They hadn't even had their first gra
duating class at the end of my first term.
It required a governor who had more
than one term to stick with that, to carry
that on through. An awful lot of the
industry weVe been able to recruit here,
particularly foreign industry, came here
because we established a personal
relationship with those industry heads
that enabled us to keep working with
them. I visited a company in Japan five
years ago and this year, after five years,
they announced a new plant in North
Carolina. So that kind of continuity,
which other states have had, we finally
have in North Carolina and it's paying
DTH In comparison with our
neighboring Southern states, how do
you think North Carolina is doing in
terms of its economic growth? What
major problems do you see lying ahead
for instance, tobacco?
Hunt That's going to be a problem.

Addressing the mandatory $100 meal
plan facing students next semester,
Dickson said he disagreed that the
administration's decision was not
negotiable. If elected, he said he would
work to exclude at least Granville

sion I had to make was to
go for the three-cent gas
oline tax to prevent our
roads from going to ruin.
I knew the political costs
of that; I knew that was
going to hurt me politi
cally, but it had to be done
for the state's interest. . . .
We woulid have really got
ten behind if we hadn't
done that, and it was the
right thing to do. '
Textiles (are) going to be a problem.
But fortunately we are moving into the
new technology industries that are going
to have (a) very bright future, and so
in light of the problems we are having,
thank goodness, we have been able to
DTH What would you say were
the most difficult decisions you had to
make while governor?
Hunt I think the toughest decision
I had to make was to go for the three
cent gasoline tax to prevent our roads
from going to ruin. I knew the political
costs of that; I knew that was going
to hurt me politically, but it had to be
done for the state's interest. We would
have lost industry; we would have lost
jobs; we would have really gotten
behind if we hadnt done that, and it
was the right thing to do.
DTH What about the decisions
over Velma Barfield and James
Hunt Those were the most agon
izing decisions of a different kind
about a human being I had to make.
You've got decisions that are tougher
you've got policy decisions like the
highway gasoline tax increase, and
you've got the personal individual
decisions you have to make. Those were
the toughest decisions I had to make
DTH With two executions in the
past year, would you still be in favor
of the death penalty?
Hunt Yes. I do believe that in
many cases, not all cases, but in many
cases, it is a deterrent and can help to
save lives in the future once people know
that it's going to be enforced.
DTH What is the most important
thing you have learned personally and
perhaps politically in your eight years
Hunt As governor of North
Carolina, the most important thing I
learned was that economic growth and
our jobs are directly tied to the quality
of our schools, our public schools, our
community colleges, our private col
leges and our universities. If we fail to
support them adequately or fail to make
them excellent we are resigning our
selves to a poor economy and inade
quate jobs that pay less than what
