Redemption replaces frustration
By KURT ROSENBERG
The outcome had been decided
minutes earlier. Another North Carol
ina comeback simply was not to be.
Similarly, it had become clear much
earlier that Johnny Dawkins had done
his part, that he had atoned for his sins '
in Duke's loss to Wake Forest Thursday
night. Against Wake Forest, he scored
just eight points, the first time in 52
games he failed to hit double figures.
Against UNC Saturday, he had 24
points in the first 29 minutes.
But it wasn't until 52 seconds
remained that Dawkins decided it was
time to savor his afternoon of redemp
tion. To let 10,000 fans know of his
satisfaction after having unleashed his
frustrations against their team.
Brad Daugherty missed a jump shot,
the ball bounded into Dawkins' hands,
and in an instant, he was gone. Daugh
erty was back on defense, but it was
a one-on-one contest he could not win.
Dawkins drove down the left side and
was fouled by Daugherty as he flew by
him for a reverse layup. The score was
Then, in a moment of spontaneity,
the sprightly Dawkins reversed his field
and, still running, raised both index
fingers to the silent crowd before
returning to the free-throw line.
It was an uncharacteristic display of
boastfulness for Dawkins, who
obviously has been well-educated in the
ways of post-game diplomacy.
After the game, won by Duke, 93
77, he was asked if this was his finest
performance this season.
"It was agood gamer he casually ans
wered. "I don't if it was my best game
Regardless, it came exactly when it
was needed the most. His team, ranked

second in the nation, had lost its last
two games, both by two points, both
in overtime. And after the last loss,
Dawkins considered himself partially

Forest game, that 1 let us down in a

But Saturday afternoon belonged to
Dawkins. In the second half, he seemed
intent on claiming exclusive rights to
In general, it was Duke's intensity on
defense and its domination of the
boards that handed North Carolina its
third loss of the season. In particular,
it was Dawkins.
When UNC used its normally impe
netrable man-to-man defense, Dawkins
often proved too quick for Steve Hale,
generally considered the Tar Heels' best
defensive player. When North Carolina
tried to shut down the Blue Devils with
a zone, Dawkins shut down North
Carolina from the outside.
In the second half, which started with
the score tied at 39, Dawkins displayed
the form that earned him a spot as an
alternate on last summer's Olympic
team and maybe even made some
wonder why he was only an alternate.
He hit two quick jump shots to put
Duke up, 46-41, but Hale and Warren
Martin, the latest deity in Carmichael
Auditorium, were keeping things close.
Dawkins made a ridiculous shot from
deep in the right corner, well behind
the backboard, that seemed to inject
him with a measure of infallibility. If
that shot could hit the bottom of the
net, then in all likelihood, he could do
no wrong. And even the inspired play
of Martin, and the Tar Heels' penchant
for second-half heroics could not stand

in the way.
"This was my night, Dawkins said.
"I felt good. Our players were looking
for me, and a lot of great things
After Martin brought UNC to within
two at 51-49, Duke scored seven
straight, five coming from Dawkins,
who continually victimized the Tar
Heels with his quickness on defense and
With 2:30 left in the game, Duke was
up 10. Based on North Carolina's most
recent games, it would have made sense
to conclude that things were just getting
Dawkins would have none of it.
Again and again, the Tar Heels put him
at the foul line. Dawkins simply put the
game out of reach. He was placed in
four one-and-one situations and made
seven of the eight free throws. Eleven
points in the last 2:25. Thirty-four for
the game, 21 in the crucial second half.
Plus four steals, four assists and eight
rebounds for the 6-2, 165-pound guard,
who played every minute of the game.
"I expected that from Johnny," said
his coach, Mike Krzyzewski. "He was
the guy who was most disturbed about
his play against Wake. Being the
competitor he is, he just wanted to come
back and play right away, and it really
didn't matter where it was at. He just
wanted to play."
Certainly, the fact that Johnny
Dawkins was two years old the last time
Duke won a game in Carmichael
Auditorium did not faze him on
Saturday! In his last two games there,
he has scored a total of 59 points. In
2xi seasons, Dawkins has moved into
10th place on Duke's list of career
scoring leaders. Next year, he will be
challenging the top three Mike
Gminski, Gene Banks and Jim
But as Dawkins knows so well, it is
this season that matters most now. and
each game is a separate entity upon
which he must focus all his attention.
"I've just gotta take advantage of my
opportunities," he said. "Some nights
you make 'em, some nights you don't.
You've gotta go with the flow."

UNC put Duke on the foul line for
most of the last three minutes, but the
Blue Devils converted often enough to
deny a rally.
"The key to the game was rebound
ing," -UNC coach Dean Smith said.

remarkable. At 51-49 we had four good
shots and didn't make them. That's
when Dawkins hit a couple of long ones

Duke, which does not have a true
center, but plays 6-8 Jay Bilas at the
position, matched up well against the
taller Tar" Heels. Bilas contributed 17
points and 11 rebounds while forward
Mark Alarie, who scored Duke's first
six points, finished with 19 points and
five rebounds. Those figures compare
to Daugherty's 18 points and 11
rebounds, and Martin's 16 points and
Krzyzewski said the key to control
ling UNC's transition game was to deny
the inside moves. "In the second half
we made sure we were making the
adjustment of staying between the ball
and their post man while putting very
good pressure on the ball-handler," he
said. "It worked out well for us."
Kenny Smith, who had 1 0 assists, said
the Tar Heels simply were not patient.
"It seemed like as we passed more
around them, their defense relaxed,"
Smith said. "If we could have passed
a little more, we might have gotten
Guard Steve Hale said the loss was
frustrating in the sense that UNC was
often forcing its own mistakes. "Every
time we started to make a comeback,
we'd have a turnover or miss an easy
shot," Hale said. "Those are errors you
just can't do against Duke."
The loss drops UNC to 13-3 overall,
4-1 in the ACC. Duke, which dropped
a pair of two-pointers last week, moves
to 3-2 in the ACC, and 13-2 overall.
