Kadfoird steals last-second win
By JAMIE ROSENBERG
When a basketball game comes
down to the final minute with the
score close, the nerves tight and the
sweat abundant, teams look to their
veterans to pull them through.
But this axiom may have been
disproven Thursday night in a wom
en's game between UNC and Radford
University. Veteran blunders and
freshman heroics in the game's
waning seconds culminated in a steal
and lay up by Radford freshman
Rosalyn Groce with five seconds to
play, giving the Highlanders a dra
matic 72-70 victory.
With nine seconds showing on the
clock, Groce swiped an inbounds pass
thrown by Tar Heel junior Wendy
Gatlin at the UNC end of the floor
and outraced two defenders for an
easy hoop at the other end.
The Tar Heels made a last effort
to send the game into overtime, but
a shot at the buzzer by junior guard
Liza Donnell glanced off the back of
UNC, however, had to scrap and
scramble just to make the game close.
With the Tar Heels down, 70-65, and
50 seconds remaining, freshman point
guard Emily Johnson canned a three
point bomb to close the margin to
After a tenacious North Carolina
trapping defense failed to phase the
Highlanders, the Tar Heels were
forced to foul, but, so it seemed, they
put the wrong person on the line.
With 18 seconds left, Donnell
fouled Radford point guard Ste
phanie Howard, who had riddled
UNC with 33 points and six of seven
free throw shooting.
But Howard, a 5-foot-5 senior,
missed the front end of her one-and-one
and gave North Carolina a
chance to tie. At the other end,
Donnell drew a shooting foul in the
low post and converted both free
throws with 11 seconds left to even
After UNC's Tanya Lamb tied up
Radford's inbounds pass with the
possession arrow pointing in the Tar
Heels favor, North Carolina had yet
another chance and was looking to
end its four-game losing streak

Yes, the Georgia Tech basketball
team has lost three of six games in
the last two weeks, but dont be
When the 22nd-ranked Yellow
Jackets come to Chapel Hill on
Saturday afternoon for a 1:30 match
up with the seventh-ranked Tar Heels
in the Smith Center, theyll be at the
end of one of the most grueling two
weeks that any basketball team will
face this year. And they played well.
. Saturday will mark the fourth team
ranked in the top 15 that the Yellow
Jackets, 12-5 overall and 2-1 in the
ACC, have faced in the last 14 days.
In the process, they almost knocked
off two of the top three teams in the
After losing to 15th-ranked N.C.
State (82-68), the Jackets gave third
ranked Louisville all it could handle
on national television before suc
cumbing 67-65, then turned around
a week later and took an undefeated
Illinois team to two overtimes before
coming up short, 102-92.
Now the high-scoring Yellow
Jackets come to Chapel Hill a
weathered, tested squad. They had to
struggle Wednesday night to edge out
a scrappy Clemson team 75-74.
Despite all that, Tech is still close
to the lead in the . ACC, and the
Yellow Jackets boast three players
who score more than 16 points per
The heart and soul of this 1989
Georgia Tech squad has to be 6-foot-,
9 senior forward Tom Hammonds.
An All-ACC performer last year,
Hammonds leads the explosive Yel
low Jackets in scoring (20.8 ppg) and
rebounding (7.6 rbg). The Tech big
man is making his presence felt in
the record books as well as on the
court as he closes in on third place
in all-time scoring for Georgia Tech
with 1,811 career points.
Hammonds, a natural forward,
played out of position at center for
most of last year because of a shortage
of big people in the Tech line-up. This
year, however, he has played most
of his minutes at the power forward
spot. It is here that he can be deadly.
Comfortable playing with his back to
the basket, he is truly one of the
premier post-up players in the nation.
Joining Hammonds on the front
line are senior forward Anthony
Sherrod (7.1 ppg.) and Johnny
McNeil (7.1 ppg.), with 6-foot-8
junior center Maurice Brittian (5.5
ppg.) coming on in relief. Averaging
6-feet-8, they will have their hands
full against the deep and tall Tar Heel
The Tech front line is not very deep
after Brittian, and if the Jackets are
going to be competitive on the boards
they will have to stay out of foul
The Yellow Jackets are also going
to have to have a Herculean effort
from their exciting guards. Sopho
more guard Dennis Scott, a 6-foot-8
gunner from the outside, is loved
by everyone these days it seems, and
at 19.4 points per game and 64 three
pointers on the season, it's no wonder.
He can hit from 23 feet out, jam over
6-foot-1 1 centers and get up the court
faster than, well, faster than most 6-foot-8
men. The word amazing comes
But someone is going to have to
get the ball to this slashing guard.
Point-guard Brian Oliver will have to
come up with another pro-like effort.
Oliver may be pro material and is
the consistent one of the bunch. Hell
meet his average of 16.8 points per
game and will boost his impressive
assists total on the season. He already
But these are tangibles, and as we
know, anything can happen on the
court. Tech has a lot of scoring
potential, pouring in 85.1 points per
game. If the Yellow Jackets use some
of the things they've learned in the
past few weeks, the Tar Heels may
have a tough scoring battle on their
But don't hold your breath.
Last year's games between these
two squads included an unforgettable
Jan. 31 fiesta at the Smith Center.
You might remember it as the Jeff
Lebo show. Lebo hit five consecutive
three-point shots, the last with 48
seconds remaining, to give the Tar
Heels a thrilling 73-71 victory. The
March 3rd rematch at The Omni in
Atlanta turned into a second-half
shooting clinic by the Tar Heels, who
shot their way toanimpressive 97
