UNC picks up
road win over

Assistant Sports Editor
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Dick Vitale wasn't
in University Hall Wednesday night, but if he had been
he would have described the game he was watching
as a true "M&M-er" a classic mismatch.
Third-ranked North Carolina proved itself to be too
big, too strong, and too quick for Virginia as the Tar
Heels rolled to a 95-80 victory over the Cavaliers before
"We played a very fine basketball team that played
a very fine basketball game," Virginia coach Terry
Holland said. "We'd like to think we can play them
closer, but the way this team (UNC) played tonight,
I'm not sure there was much we could do to beat them.
It was like trying to flag down a freight train out there."
The win upped UNC's record to 14-1, 3-0 in the
Atlantic Coast Conference. Virginia fell to 9-4 overall,
1-2 in the conference. ?
Point guard Kenny Smith led a balanced Tar Heel
scoring attack with 19 points. He was followed in the
point parade by J.R. Reid with 17, Joe Wolf with
16 and Jeff Lebo with 15. Wolf also ripped down nine
The key stretch in the game was an 18-6 UNC run
in a five minute span of the first half. With the Tar
Heels clinging to a 26-23 lead at the 9:12 mark, Dave
Popson hit a layup, got fouled, and made the free
throw to ignite an 8-0 burst which took only 59 seconds.
That run included a Lebo three-point shot from the
left corner and a turnaround shot in the lane by Wolf
which pushed the lead to 34-23.
After Virginia called timeout, John Johnson hit a
jumper to cut the UNC lead back to nine, but Curtis
Hunter strung together a follow shot and a 15-foot
jumper to key Part Two of the surge. The half ended
with the Tar Heels comfortably ahead, 51-37.
"Our first fifteen minutes were the best we've played
this year," UNC coach Dean Smith said. "1 think we
are a good basketball team. Last year they (UVa.) tore
us up. But 1 guess we either caught them on a bad
night or else they caught us on a good one."
North Carolina began the second half by picking
up right where it left off. A 9-3 Tar Heel spurt in
the opening two and a half minutes upped the score
to 60-40, and the game was essentially over. Kenny
Smith had five of the points on a fast break dunk
and a three-point field goal in the backbreaking
Throughout the game, UNC pounded the ball inside
almost at will. As a result, the Tar Heels shot better
than 61 percent for the game, including an unbelievable
66 percent (21 for 32) in the first half.

Carol Geer. a sophomore history
and political science major from New
York City, has announced her
candidacy for Carolina Athletic
Association (CAA) president.
Geer said that if elected she will
make the CAA more responsive to
student input. "It's a misconception
that the CAA is there merely for
tickets and homecoming," she said.
"The main function of the CAA is
to represent students on all athletic
Geer said her experiences as a
member of the CAA Cabinet and
as chairwoman of the Projects
Committee give her the qualifica

with students' problems and I'm
familiar with all campus athletic
issues," she said.

is to make students more aware of

them. She said one of her ideas is

More of UNC's administrators
need to show support for the pro
posed Black Cultural Center, and the
project's planners need to form a
more workable purpose for the
center, a black culture consultant
If UNC doesn't- take action, the
center may be accused of "trivializing
. and belittling" minority development
at UNC, said William Jones, director
of black studies at Florida State
Jones, who served .as a UNC-paid
consultant to the project, visited the
campus Oct. 31, and he spent the
day talking to planning committee
members. His report was not sent
to Vice Chancellor of Student
Affairs Donald Boulton until early
January because of personal illness,
Jones said in a phone interview
Boulton said he promised commit
tee members he would not release
Jones' report until they had dis
cussed, it privately. Although a
meeting to review the. report was
planned for Wednesday afternoon,
it was postponed a week because
some committee members were not
able to attend, Boulton said.
Jones was hired as a consultant
so the planning committee could get
an outside point of view of their
progress, Boulton said.
Jones said his report focused on
two main points: -
a The center's mission needs to be
narrower and more precise. Its
purpose is now "too global" for the
center's planners to make specific
plans for programming, he said.
An explicit statement of the
center's purpose would help guide its

perspective booklet that would be
distributed to all freshmen at orien
tation and would be made available
to all other students. "It would make .
students aware of all the sports
opportunities here at Carolina," she
Geer also said she would publish
a monthly calendar of all sports
events, including clubs and intra
murals. "A calendar like this would
reach everybody with a lot of
essential information," she said.
She said she is very pleased with
the way homecoming has evolved.
"I think homecoming really does
involve all students," she said. "I'd
like to continue to develop the 1
involvement of dorms, fraternities

to teach at 9, 10 and II o'clock in
the morning. They think students
will be sleepy or late to class early
in the morning, and there's a letdown
in the afternoon, especially later in
Most departments should expe
rience no significant differences in
class size. "For undergraduates,
there will not .be much more use of
later afternoon classes," Kennedy
said. "1 really don't think you're
going to see a great increase after
development, he said. Just having
diversity in the student body and
faculty is not enough, and the
center's purpose should include the
idea of pluralism; it should work
toward equal cultural commmunities
and expression within UNC.
a To avoid being accused of
insincerity about the center, UNC
needs to make people understand
that the center's progress so far is
only the first step.
"If the University makes a very,
very small response to the center, the
whole thing could be allowed to die,"
Jones said. The planning proposal
is much broader and more extensive
than the action now being taken to
carry it out, he said.
Based on his limited experience.
Jones said that Boulton was sincerely
dedicated to the center. But Jones
wasn't certain that the rest of the
administration had that same kind
"There needs to be an expression
from the rest of the central admin
istration showing that they have
made the same kind of commitment
that Dean Boulton's approach indi
cated that he had," Jones said.
Boulton agreed. uWe are seeking
to get a broader base of support
beyond the office of student affairs,"
he said. "Dean Stephen Birdsall is
on the committee as a representative
of Gillian Cell (Dean of the College
of Arts and Sciences), in order to
help us broaden that base of
Boulton said he hoped people saw
the committee's plans so far as a
beginning step, not an ending one.
"We do need to discuss things more,
as well as experiment with different,
programs," he said. "You can't get
everything perfect before you start."
