UNC cool under Lions' pressure,
runs to record 1 23-97 victory
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
SALT LAKE CITY Loyola
Marymount could run, but it couldn't
hide. The North Carolina Tar Heels
systematically dismantled the Lions'
pressure defense and clamped down
on Loyola's high-powered offense
Saturday, rolling to a 123-97 NCAA
Tournament victory and in the
process moving on to a Final 16 berth
against Michigan Friday in Seattle.
Though UNC committed 26 turn
overs and had problems getting the
ball upcourt, the Tar Heels ran their
offense to perfection once they got
into the halfcourt set. Disdaining
medium-range jumpers in favor of
easy layups and bombs from three
point range, UNC shot an incredible
79 percent from the field, and no Tar
Heel missed more than three shots.
Loyola, meanwhile, had all kinds
of problems putting the ball in the
basket. The Lions rely on their
The protesters, both area resi
dents and students, met at the
Morehead Planetarium and
marched up Franklin Street and
back to the planetarium. Some
protesters then marched in front
of the Smith Center, where NCAA
basketball tournament games
were being played.
The protest was planned on
Thursday night after organizers
were unable to get a permit for
a Fort Bragg protest. A protest in
Fort Bragg will be held this
Saturday, according to
Antle said losing the hospital
laundry account will mean a 60
percent loss of the laundry's business.
"In 1953, we expanded the UNC
laundry service facilities just to handle
the hospital laundry because at that
time the hospital was part of the
University, but now it is a separate
institution," he said. "The University
will be reviewing its options during
the next several days and will decide
whether or not it will have to close
offense to offset the easy hoops their
ferocious trapping defense yields.
They shoot within seven seconds, do
a tremendous job on the offensive
boards, and though they frequently
hit less than 50 percent of their shots,
shoot often enough to outscore their
But against UNC, Loyola's magic
vanished. The jump shots didn't drop,
and even the easy putbacks became
difficult as the Lions began pressing.
After hitting only 13 of 51 shots in
the first half, Loyola improved
slightly in the second but still finished
at a paltry .321 from the field on the
Lion coach Paul Westhead was
philosophical about his team's woes.
"We ran our system and tried our
best, and a lot of shots didn't go down
that we frequently make," Westhead
said. "We live and die with our
offense. If the offense isn't scoring,
we're not ever going to defend well

"People in the area are frus
trated by the troops in Honduras
and (the march gave them) an
outlet to display their frustration,"
said Diana McDuffee, chairwo
man of the Carolina Interfaith
Task Force on Central America
and an organizer of the march.
The unexpectedly high turnout
shows how much citizens want the
troops removed, she said.
Susan Edelstein, a UNC student
and member of the Carolina
Committee on Central America,
said the march was held to protest
the presence of American troops
the laundry. The laundry, of course,
must be self-supporting, and this
development will make it difficult to
sustain the laundry."
Antle said officials are considering
three other options to closing the
laundry. One is to decrease the
activity of the current laundry facility,
keeping all the current equipment.
The second option is to keep the
facility in its existing location but
scale down its size by eliminating
unneeded equipment and decreasing
enough to win against a high caliber
team like this."
The two major culprits for Loyola
were guards Corey Gaines and Bo
Kimble, who normally make the Lion
offense click. Gaines was a miserable
5-of-20 from the field, though he did
dish off lOassists and committed just
one turnover. And anyway, his
shooting looked great next to Kim
ble's 3-of-21 showing.
Certainly, many of those misses
can be attributed to the vagaries of
shooting. But the Tar Heels had
hands in Lion faces all game long and
punished Loyola for every miss.
Before the first half had ended, the
Lions knew that they had to score
on each trip they took down the floor,
for if they didn't they would fall

Some people consider the
region to be another Vietnam.
Others call the military situation
an attempt to send aid to the
Nicaraguan contras without con
gressional approval or an attempt
to overthrow the democratically
elected Nicaraguan government,
"Basically we just don't believe
we should be sending troops down
there," Edelstein said.
There are no other demonstra
tions planned for the area,
the staff. The third option is to
transfer the plant to a smaller
building and renovate old equipment.
Officials had asked the hospital to
renovate the laundry facilities jointly
with the University, Antle said. But
hospital officials said they felt it
would be less costly for them in the
long run to sign the contract with
Durham County General Hospital's
new laundry facilities, he said.
UNC also did a study of the cost
and found that it would have been

UNC should work to recruit more
minority students and faculty
members, Chancellor Fordham said
Friday at a Faculty Council meeting.
"The minority level has plateaued
at an unsatisfactory level," he said.
Although minority student enroll
ment is low, Fordham said he was
encouraged by the increase in the
number of minority applicants to
UNC and by their improved
Fordham also said that while UNC
has more black faculty members than
comparable research institutions, he
was discouraged by the decrease of
black faculty members from 50 to 48
in the past three years.
Gillian Cell, dean of arts and
sciences, said in a prepared statement
that the Office of Student Counseling
plans to develop different support
programs to encourage the success of
"We are deeply concerned and
indeed determined to improve the
graduation rates of minority stu
dents," Cell said.
Cell said she was encouraged by
the fact that only five black freshmen
were academically ineligible at the
end of their first semester.
Cell also predicted that more
minority students than ever before
would be enrolled in the Honors
Program next fall.

Antle said he does not foresee any
of the laundry's employees losing
their jobs with the University.
"If the laundry is forced to close,
the University will make every effort
to relocate the laundry's 42 employees
in other University jobs," he said.
"The ones we feel the most for are
the employees and they are who we
will work the most for."
The source would not give
detailed information about exactly
what was discussed, but said,
"Nothing IVe seen reported in area
papers so far has been even
remotely correct. A lot of people
are talking about people not even
involved in the search."
Newspapers have recently
reported that there are four lead
ing candidates for the post:
Samuel Williamson, UNC provost
and a candidate for the presidency
of the University of the South;
Dennis O'Connor, UNC vice
chancellor for research and grad

Brian Bailey, the student repre
sentative on the search committee,
said that the meeting involved a
"personnel matter," but that a
North Carolina statute prevents
specifics from being released.
"I can't really talk about details,
but I'm personally very happy and
very optimistic about the way the
search is proceeding," he said.
"The candidates are demanding
a really confidential search,"
Bailey said. "We owe it to them
and to the University to respect
that. The only way to get the best
person for the job is to really stay
tight-lipped. Getting the best
person may keep everybody in the
dark for a while, but that seems
to be the best way to do it."
