The Daily Tar HeelFriday, November 14, 19867 i ' - SplruB NCAA soccer here McMishts weekend By SCOTT FOWLER Sports Editor The women's soccer team will begin its playoff drive for a fifth national title in six years Sunday at home to highlight weekend sports action. The women's team, 21-0-1 and the unanimous choice at No. 1 going into the 10-team tournament, will play Santa Barbara at 1 p.m. Sunday at Fetzer Field. Santa Barbara defeated Cincinnati 1-0 this past Sunday in the first round of the NCAAs. The Tar Heel defense has 15 shutouts to its credit this season, and the team has rolled up some incred ible statistics. However, the team received a blow last weekend when All-America forward April Hein richs hurt her knee in a blue-white scrimmage game. Whether the star forward will be available for the game is questionable. Field hockey also begins its post season play, journeying to East Brunswick, N.J. for its first-round game. The Tar Heels will open tournament play Sunday against the Heels sign By SCOTT FOWLER Sports Editor Hail to the King, may he live long and prosper. This basketball season hasn't even started yet, but for those of you worrying about who can play point for the Tar Heels after Kenny Smith is gone, welcome King Rice, a 6-0 passing wizard from Binghamton, N.Y. Rice has started every game since his freshman year for Bingh amton. During that time he has led the Patriots to a 66-5 overall mark and two state championships. Last year he averaged 14.5 points per game, had nine assists and shot 54 percent from the field. He is a third team prep All-America, according to Street & Smith's, and is destined to make headline writers H' Mot Meire Best Sports Bar In Town "US 3 TV's Now Serving Wine THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIAL $1.00 Domestic Bottles Graduate Party Fri., Nov. 21 With Live Entertainment Good Luck Heels!

The women's golf team rounds out the weekend's schedule, teeing off in the Pat Bradley Invitational at Key Biscayne Fla. Sunday through Tuesday.

Rice, who had narrowed down his choice of five schools to Syracuse, UNC, Notre Dame, Providence and longshot N.C. State earlier in the week, inked with the Tar Heels Thursday. He is the second recruit to sign during the early signing period with UNC. The other is Rick Fox, a senior small forward from Warsaw, Ind. who signed Tuesday. Fox averaged 21 points and 12 rebounds per game during his junior season. As far as the conference recruiting battle, Duke has recruited 6-10 Clay Buckley of Berwyn, Pa., whose father Jay was a Duke player in the 1960s. N.C.

For this is no ordinary late-season, we'd-rather-see-these-teams-playing-basketball contest. No, this is a game which can only be called the Battle of the Coaches with Broken Bones (no relation to the Battle of the Network Stars). Tar Heel coach Dick Crum will be the clear favorite over Wahoo coach George Welsh in this game, though. First of all, Crum has had his injury longer, since he broke his leg Sept. 20 when tailback Derrick Fenner ran him over on the sideline. Welsh broke his ankle just a week ago. So Crum has tenure. In addition, Crum suffered his rather ignominious fate in a game situation, coaching his team against Florida State. Welsh's mishap, on the other hand, occurred in practice last Thursday. And certainly a wound suffered in the heat of battle Wolf is described as a model student, although education professor Gerald Unks notes, "His girlfriend takes notes for both of them.,, In another basketball note, Kenny Smith has been picked as the pre season player-of-the-year by sportswriters covering the confer ence. J.R. Reid was selected as rookie-of-the-year, and the Tar Heels were picked to win the ACC. Great American , Smokeout teNov.20 'Just For Fun!"

Finally, and most importantly, Welsh will be hard-pressed to match the Crum-Mobile, the coach's mag nificent golf cart which has gotten rave reviews and was featured on the cover of the game program two weeks ago. Unless Welsh appears in a Rolls, the Crum-Mobile will carry the day. No Hyundais, George, if you please. So Crum has all the advantages. But if it came down to a Kenan Stadium popularity contest, a Crum victory would be far from guaran teed. Tar Heel fans, displeased with UNC's 5-3-1 record, have been vilifying Crum for his perceived mellow attitude and lack of offensive imagination. The cries reached a crescendo this past week after Clemson trounced UNC 38-10 in Death Valley. But what the critics refuse to consider is that the team they were so high on when it was 4-0-1 is, in many respects, the same team it is now. The coaching philosophy hasn't changed and the style of play has similarly stayed the same. The personnel has, however, changed. And the defense has been consist ently bad over the last five weeks, giving up 30 or more points in each of those game. Contributing to the personnel turnover and the defensive woes have been injuries. Linebacker Brett Rudolph, guard Reuben Davis and safety Norris Davis have been battling nagging injuries all year, and that has been tough on the defense. The most notable change, of course, involves Kenan hero Mark Maye, playing instead of Jon Hall at quarterback. The Tar Heels, by the way, were the aforementioned 4-0-1 under Hall and are an unmen Stereo Sound Continues Woofer & Tweeters' Going-Out-Of-Business Sole!

The Cavs aren't doing much better, with a 3-6 record. But at least they have some momentum after beating an Erik Kramer-less N.C. State 20-16 last week. Freshmah back Durwin Greggs, a real Clydes dale, carried for 177 yards and sophomore Kevin Morgan picked up 104. This is Welsh's worst year as a Wahoo. But maybe 3-6 isn't so bad for a team whose 1985 MVP, Barry Word, pleaded guilty to being a small-time distributor in a big-time cocaine ring. Last year, the Tar Heels went up to Virginia with faint hopes of a bowl game still alive. A backup quarter back named Scott Secules sent those hopes a'glimmering in a 24-22 Wahoo victory. This year, UNC could still finish 7-3-1, an amazingly soft 7-3-1, but seven wins is seven wins. And the Hall of Fame Bowl is sending someone to the game. But that's not what really matters. What does is the Welsh-Crum battle. So don't look for a coin flip to decide which team kicks off to start the game. Instead, Welsh and Crum are going to duel with crutches at midfield.
