Wilson scores 40,
women wreck Tech
By LANGSTON WERTZ
The North Carolina women's
basketball team slid into Sunday's
game with Georgia Tech on a
month-long, five-game losing
streak. Obviously, the Tar Heels
desperately needed a victory and
some big performances.
Is 40 points, 17 rebounds, one
assist and two blocked shots big
enough for you?
Those were the numbers UNC
forward Kathy Wilson posted in
leading the 7-6, 1-2 Tar Heels to
a much-needed 82-74 victory over
Georgia Tech in the Smith Center.
With the loss, Tech feU to 7-5, 1
2. "When somebody's hot, get
them the ball," said Wilson, a 6-foot-2
senior from Marietta, Ga.
"The team saw I was hot and they
got me the ball. (Tech) recruited
me so I didn't want to lose to
The Yellow Jackets, who
haven't beaten the Tar Heels in 17
straight games since joining the
ACC, brought in what UNC coach
Sylvia Hatchell called Tech's best
women's team ever and the ACC's
two leading scorers.
But both Marielle Walker (22.4
points per game) and Dolores
Bootz (21.6) could not stop the
Wilson onslaught, which ended
just one point shy of Tresa
Brown's all-time UNC single
game scoring record of 41 points
set against Virginia in 1984.
Did Wilson know she was close
to history? "Heck no," she said.
"I wasn't paying attention to the
record. I just wanted to win."
While the six-foot Walker had
a horrible day shooting, connect
ing on just two of IS shots for a
13 percent clip, Bootz was a terror,
nailing 13 of 15 shots en route to

a team-high 32 points.
Early on, though, it appeared
that neither team could score at
all, much less put up the type of
numbers that Bootz and Wilson
Both teams came out cold, and
it took two Bootz free throws to
open the scoring at the 18:03 mark.

scoop shot to give Tech a 6-4 lead,

Bootz, however, would not be
outdone in this duel between two
of the ACC's top players. With her
running mate Walker stifled by
cold shooting and foul trouble,
courtesy of Wilson, Bootz took
charge. She scored 18 points in the
first half, including 10 straight at
But it was UNC's Kelli Kennedy
who stole Bootz's thunder, nailing
a wide open 20-footer at the buzzer
to give UNC a 39-34 halftime lead.
Walker started off the second
half as cold as she did the first,
and UNC maintained the lead as
Wilson, who had been playing
predominantly in the paint, moved
out beyond the three-point stripe
and hit two treys.
Georgia Tech scrapped and
fought behind Bootz and a full
court press, drawing to within one
point, 56-55, with 9:42 left.
But Wilson unloaded again. She
scored nine straight in this ons
laught, and the Tar Heels bolted
out to a 65-58 lead. Tech would
never contest again as UNC salted
away its first win since Dec. 21.

Tracksters mass first real test at JHI
By ROBERT D'ARRUDA
The Joe Hilton Invitational indoor
track meet was held this past weekend
in the Tin Can, and included nine
teams. The two day tournament is
held every year by UNC, to commem
orate the school's former longtime
The tournament featured over 30
different events, and had many
exciting moments. The meet was the
first of the new year for the Tar Heels.
"We wanted to see how aggressive
and how competitive our kids were,"
UNC coach Dennis Craddock said.
"The team looked good, we ran
against some real tough competition
and overall it was a great confidence
builder for our athletes. "
Many outstanding performances
were turned in by the Tar Heels.
Among them, Tim Goad's excellent
performance in the shot put. The big
senior from Claudeville, Va., who
played defensive tackle for the foot
ball Tar Heels, captured first-place
honors in the shot and placed a close
second in the 35-pound weight
competition. In another field event,
UNC sophomore Tom Rentenbach
soared to victory in the pole vault.
In the running events, the Tar Heel
men also enjoyed great success. The
most thrilling event of the meet was
the 55-meter dash. The event featured
an electrifying photo finish between
North Carolina's Brad Sullivan and
St. Augustine's Tarrell Carpentar,
which went to Sullivan by one
hundreths of a second.

Andy Pflaum edged teammate Paul
Cummings by one-half second to take

The UNC men's swimming team
upset a nationally-ranked Clemson
squad Saturday in Koury Natato
rium, while the women's team suf
fered its first loss of the season at
the hands of the fifth-ranked Tigers.
The men's 12914-8714 victory, led
by freshman Marc Ferguson and
sophomores Tony Monasterio and
Tod Schroeder, improved their
record to 3-0 in the ACC and 6-0
overall. The Tigers dropped to 2-2
on the season and 0-2 in conference
Tar Heel coach Frank Comfort
said he expected his men's team to
win the meet, but many of the
swimmers were surprised by the
margin of victory against the 20th
Monasterio, a Ponce, Puerto Rico
native, won the 200-yard freestyle
event in 1:40.68 and placed second
to Ferguson in the 500-yard freestyle.
Monasterios said the Tar Heels were
expecting a much closer score.
"From top to bottom, everybody
came through for us today," Monas
terio said. "We didn't think it would
be such a blowout."
Schroeder, who won the 50-yard
freestyle event in 20.79 and swam on
two victorious relay teams, had his
own explanation for the Tar Heels'

When the UNC wrestling team
takes to the mat against archrival
N.C. State tonight at 7:30 in Carmi
chael Auditorium, it will be a war.
Both teams are laden with talent and
tradition, and both want this win
The two have combined to win 1 1
of the last 12 ACC championships,
and since 1977 neither has finished
lower than third in the standings.
UNC has taken home six champion
ship trophies in that time, including
the last four, and the team's "drive
for number five" begins tonight
against some very stiff competition.
Since the biweekly National Wres
tling Coaches Association (NCWA)
poll last came out on Jan. 6, the 13th
ranked Wolfpack has defeated third
ranked Penn State, seventh-ranked
Lock Haven (Pa.) State, split a pair
of matches with 11 -ranked Minne
sota, and lost matches to sixth-ranked
Northern Iowa and the fourth-ranked
defending NCAA champions, Iowa
The 10-5 Wolfpack is now 1-0 in
the conference after defeating Mary
land Saturday, while the 12th-ranked
Tar Heels are 7-3 following a surpris
ingly easy 26-10 defeat of VMI. North

The meet offered the head-to-head
match-up of two All-American

Individually, State has a load of
talent to lead them, including seniors
Scott Turner, 11-2-1 and ranked
second in the nation at 150 pounds,
and Mike Lombardo, 20-1 at heavy
weight and ranked third.
The Tar Heels, led by senior All
American Rob Koll, will have to rely
on a young, but very talented team.
Koll, looking to become UNC's first
ever four-time All-American, is 23

different weight classes and is cur

top two wrestlers from each weight
class will compete. He sat out Satur

A key for the Tar Heels could be
the possible return of senior All
American Lenny Bernstein, who has
been out since November with a knee
injury. But even if Bernstein does
wrestle tonight, the two-time ACC
champion will not be at full strength.

Bakehorn stole the show by beating
O'Brien in both backstroke events

Penn State, and he lost a close one
