ATLANTA The North
Carolina-Georgia lech game was a
made-for-television affair from the
beginning. The execs at NBC had
shoe-horned it into the networks
weekend schedule, which meant that
UNC didn't finish the ACC season
with Duke, which is usually the case.
But not even NBC's head honcho
(irant l inker could have hoped for
a better sitcom of a game than the
Tar Heels' 92-76 victory at the Omni.
It had everything an American
viewing audience could want:

(lech's Bruce Dalrymple).
And, like all the good shows
(Three's Company, Punky Brewster,
et al). the outcome was apparent
before the plot was half through.
Yes, everything network TV could
want, except Dick Clark although
the Yellow Jackets had their share
of Bloops and Blunders.
The program opened in the usual
manner. Both squads missed a shot
or two before Joe Wolf picked off
an errant Tech pass and fed Kenny
Smith for a layup on the other end.
(read: Janet, Chrissy and Jack are
late with the rent again.)
The teams traded baskets until the
first commercial, at which time UNC
led, 1 2-9. When the Coors Light ad
left the screen, the game resumed
with a familiar scene as Reid hit a
turnaround from the baseline. Then
the foreshadowing . . .
The Jackets' next possession was
bleeped out because of three consec
utive missed layups and tip-ins by
Dalrymple and Brian Oliver. The
next time down, Oliver commited an
offensive foul. Duane Ferrell then
missed another shot in the lane.
Dalrymple fudged a breakaway
layup. Hammonds threw up an

eventually dunked). Hammonds
missed again from within five feet.

Ranino then hit a pull-up jumper
on a fastbreak, hit a long, long 3
pointer and sliced through the lane

half. Kenny Smith got the other nine.

The lawsuit, scheduled to be filed

Before taking action against the
Chapel Hill Town Council's new
noise ordinance, UNC's Student
(iovernment plans to research how
other college towns regulate noise
levels and meet with town officials.
The council revised a 1981 ordi
nance at its Feb. 9 meeting, lowering
the acceptable noise level from 85
to 75 decibels, and moving the cut-

Bailey, Darity and J. Clint New

Newton, who had originally questi
oned the difficulty of implementing
the conscious buying resolution, said
he had changed his mind because the
board's discussion had turned into
an emotional debate on divestment.
"So 1 won't be misinterpreted (as
opposing divestment), I am going to
come down on the side of Darity."
Trustee George Ragsdale called
the resolution "cruel and unusual
punishment for innocent blacks in
South Africa." Black workers in

"The University should have no
part in resolutions such as this,"
Bailey disagreed. "I think it's a
good proposal," he said. "Everybody
needs to know about the problem
and know what companies are still
there (in South Africa)."
The proposal would only make
students and faculty more aware of
buying certain products, not stop
them from doing so. Bailey said.
