'ar Heels beat Michigan
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
SEATTLE Without a general,
an army is lost.
That was thexiase Friday, as the
Michigan Wolverines followed the
performance of Ail-American Gary
(The General) Grant and fell to North
Carolina 78-69 in the NCAA West
Grant, a 6-foot-3 guard playing the
final game of his illustrious career,
went 3-of-10 from the field, commit
ted five turnovers and scored just
seven points before fouling out of the
game. The lOth-ranked Wolverines'
Rumeal Robinson, though, picked up
the slack, turning in the best perfor
mance of his young career, scoring
29 points, dishing off six assists and
keeping Michigan in the game until
the final minute.
But Robinson's heroics were not
enough to offset the seventh-ranked
Tar Heels' second-half showing, as
UNC shot 71 percent from the field
and dominated the paint to reach the
Final Eight for the sixth time in eight
UNC was led by the inside tandem
of Scott Williams and J.R. Reid, who
scored 19 and 18 points, respectively.
The win upped UNC's record to
27-6. Michigan ended its season 26
8. Both teams started slowly and shot
poorly from the floor. But in the
second half, the Tar Heels began to
break down the Michigan man-toman
defense, and to confuse the
Wolverine offense with a flurry of
"They do such a good job of
changing their defenses, of combining
their run-and-jump and the trap, that
they're hard to score on," said
Michigan coach Bill Frieder. "They
have tremendous depth and they
utilize it well."
Before the game the Wolverines
had said that depth would, in fact,
not be a factor. But UNC coach Dean

real threat from 19-9, picked up the
ballhandling responsibility as the Tar
Heels played the Wildcat guards
tight. And the more Elliott handled
the ball, the more dangerous he
became. In the second half, no one
could stop him.
"They were playing a tough pres
sure man-to-man defense," said Kerr,
Arizona's senior guard who finished
with 14 points. "And if you play that
on Sean, and you don't help, he's
going to go by you." -Arizona

Smith's constant shuttling of substi

"One of our goals is to try and wear
teams down," Reid said. "We threw
a lot of bodies out there and we did
wear them down. We got some easy
shots in the second half because they
were tired. And we got them in foul
trouble because they were tired."
One of the Michigan players who
was most tired was Terry Mills. Mills
started the game playing Reid, and
the physical play inside took its toll
on the Wolverine sophomore.
Though the game had been touted
as a matchup between Mills and Reid,
all of Mills 12 points came on jump
shots from the outside, while Reid
ruled the paint.
"Early in the game, J.R. and I got
in a shoving match," Mills said. "The
physical contact just wore me down."
That contact did not seem to have
the same effect on Reid, however.
Though he took a number of off
balance shots in the first half, in the
second Reid played under control. It
was the 6-foot-9 Tar Heel sophomore
who had the biggest basket of the
game, rebounding King Rice's missed
foul shot and laying it in with 48
seconds to go to put UNC up 74
68. The Tar Heels, though, might
never have been in a position to win
had Grant not struggled as he did.
The senior guard was never into the
game, and missed four three-pointers,
including two in the final minutes.
"Right off the bat my game wasn't
on and I knew it," Grant said. " I
tried to get into the flow, but my shot
wasn't falling. I feel bad for my team,
but every basketball player goes
through it. And it was my day today."
Grant's miscues helped spark
UNC's run at the start of the second
half, when the Tar Heels went on a
7-0 spurt to go up 50-41. That spurt
was capped by a Steve Bucknall three-
delivered as the Owls shot just 28.6
percent from the floor for the game.
Billy King held Temple freshman
sensation Mark Macon to 13 points
on 6-for-29 shooting, while Strick
land -held Mike -Vreeswyk to six.
The Blue Devils exploded after
Snyder's trey, with Strickland, who
finished with a game-high 21 points,

a special point of praising Elliott's
floor play. "If they have to play our
guards tightly, then Sean's the guy
we're going to go to. And with his
penetration Sean was able to hit the
shot or draw the help."
The consequences of Elliott's
ability to hit off the dribble became
apparent in the game's last 10 min
utes. After slipping in the lane and
dishing to Tolbert for the aforemen
tioned reverse layup, Elliott drove

pointer after Grant missed from 19
9. The Wolverines, though,
responded with a 10-2 run of their
own to cut the lead back to one. The
key figure in that run was Robinson,
who hit a 17-foot baseline jumper,
two free throws, and then stripped
Jeff Lebo of the ball for a fast-break
jam. It was after that dunk that it
became clear that Robinson had
decided the game was his.
"I thought Rumeal played out
standing," Frieder said. "When we
were struggling offensively, he made
the big plays. All the big plays."
Robinson, though, was less pleased
with his showing. "It was one of those
things. It just happened," he said of
his performance. "I didn't take
charge. I think J.R. took charge,
because they won. We didn't win, my
team isn't happy and so my job isn't
But Robinosn's job continued as
the Tar Heels went on yet another
run, scoring five straight points to go
up 59-53. After a Mills 18-foot
jumper, Robinson took a rebound
coast to coast to cut the lead to two.
But a Scott Williams baseline hook
shot and a free throw by Reid put
UNC up 62-57.
It was then that fate seemed to turn
in UNC's favor.
Lebo threw a pass that bounced
off two heads and directly to Reid,
who sealed the play with a jam. That
put UNC up 64-57 and seemed to
destroy whatever composure the
Wolverines had left.
"I thought We were forcing a little
bit in the first half," Smith said. "But
in the second half, we were patient.
I told them to make a few adjust
ments. I believe in taking our shots,
not the ones the defense gives us."
In the last two minutes, neither the
Wolverines' defense nor their offense
could take anything from the Tar

of the half. But the Sooners' 11-0

Dean Smith said. "In the second half
our interior defense had to help
because we were getting beat on the
outside. And Elliott does make nice
passes out of that."
Desperation seemed to seize the
Tar Heels in the final minutes of the
game, and their lack of success in
scoring continued. UNC began foul
ing with 3:35 left, but the Wildcats
hit 11 of their last 13 free throws,

to turn it over against the Tar Heel
