Tair Heels tfoir
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
GREENSBORO Spring Break
ended abruptly for North Carolina
Sunday, as the Duke Blue Devils took
the Tar Heels to school for a lesson
in defense, capturing their second
ACC Tournament title in three years
with a 65-61 win.
Intensity, especially of the defen
sive vintage, was the order of the day
for the tournament final. And it was
that intensity that helped both teams
battle the fatigue of playing three days
in a row, as the players struggled
against wobbling legs and tired arms
that left normally certain jump shots
short and easy layups trickling off the
In the end, it was the Blue Devils
who dealt best with their weariness,
shrugging it away and holding UNC
to just six points and one field goal
in the final 12 minutes. The Tar Heel
defense was of a similarly superior
caliber, but Duke's effort was touched
by the divine.
"It was very difficult for either team
to score in the second half," Blue
Devil coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
"It was nice to see two teams go that
hard. We just played aggressive, great
defense. We left it all out there."
Early in the second half, though,
it looked like Duke might never get
a chance to leave anything anywhere.
The Tar Heels broke from the locker
room pumped up, and started to force
the ball inside. UNC had gotten just
two points from its frontcourt in the
first half, and seemed determined to
remedy that situation immediately.
J.R. Reid, who was scoreless in the
first 20 minutes, touched the ball a
lot in the early stages of the second
half, converting a baseline jumper
and a fastbreak layup, and drawing
four fouls. Reid's layup, which came
while Duke had five substitutes in the

Snyder's trey followed by a John
Smith three-point play tied the score.
UNC came back with another short
run, which Reid capped with a drive
inside, to go up 55-50 with 11:48 to
go. It was about that time that the
Blue Devils decided some defensive
magic was what was needed. Follow

Palestinians have been oppressed
by Israelis since the 1948 occupation
of Palestinian land, and the United
States should negotiate peace
between Israel and Palestine, said
Bob Sheldon, an organizer of the
Carolina Association for Palestinian
Human Rights (CAPHR), in a
March 3 rally in the Pit.
"The continued denial of the
Palestinians to their right of self
determination has become intoler
able," Sheldon said. "We feel that

The purpose of CAPHR is not to
actively protest and "stir up trouble,"
but to inform people about the
situation in the occupied territories,

Hanna said. "My parents were forced

law back in place," said Roger
Strickland, legislative director for
Rep. Tim Valentine, D-N.C, who
voted for the measure.
The Supreme Court decision
said that only individual programs
receiving federal money could not
practice gender discrimination,
but the new law says that insti

cannot discriminate in any pro

program receives money directly.

to curfews, house arrest, torture and
execution, he said.
"For 40 years, Palestinians have
not had freedom of speech, religion
or any other freedom that any
democratic nation takes for granted,"

The General College freshman and
sophomore honors program will be
expanded to include juniors in fall
1988, according to Robert Allen,
associate dean of the General College.
Extending the program to juniors
will give more students an opportun
ity to join the program based on their
record at UNC, Allen said, because
the honors program now invites large
numbers of students to join during
their senior year in high school.
The addition of a junior curriculum
would also close a gap in the honors
program because programs currently
exist for freshmen and sophomores
in the General College and in depart
ments for seniors, but no programs
exist for juniors.
Allen said students are chosen for
the honors program according to
their displayed academic talents and
"WeVe had freshman and sopho
more honors since 1954," he said.
Students who are in the program
must maintain a grade-point average
of 3.0 and take a minimum of two
honors classes per year.
"The number of students is purely
and simply a function of the number
of places we have in the honors
courses," Allen said. "There is a
limited number of places."
Allen said he is very enthusiastic
about the approaching year in the
"Well have a record number of
honors courses next year," he said.
"There will "be 50 sections and nine
Allen also encouraged students
who are not in the honors program
to also sign up for the courses. The
only requirement is the approval of
the honors department.
Students who are already partic
ipating in the honors programs as
freshmen or sophomores said they are
optimistic about the extension of the
