Virginia tried to come back, it
Though they were down 5-1 after
the singles matches in yesterday's
men's tennis match, with no possible
way to win, the Cavaliers put up a
valiant fight for respectability. North
Carolina ended up beating them 6
3. but hey they tried.
"I'm very happy w ith the way today
went," said coach Allen Morris. "The
boys played extremely well today,
especially in the singles matches. We
knew it was going to be a tough match
going into it. We knew we had to
play well to win."
Sunday's win puts UNC at 10-5 for
the year and a perfect 2-0 in the
conference. They are currently work
ing on a five-game winning streak.
Number-one seed David Pollack
started the match strongly with a 6
3, 6-2 drubbing of Clark.
Pollack was in control the entire
way and proved that precise place
ment can easily overcome power. He
extended his record to 24-9 overall,
and garnered his first w in in the ACC.
Freshman Brian Jones continued
to provide tremendous impact on the
team by squeaking by Virginia's
number-three seed Ken Anderson 7
5, 7-5. Jones' overall record is now
24-6 and 2-0 in the conference, but
even more impressive is his 14-1
record in the spring.
Actually, all six top seeds on North
Carolina's team have had strong
season's so far. Number-two seed
Don Johnson defeated UVa's David
Kanstoroom 6-3. 6-4 to receive his
20th win of the season against nine
losses, and 2-0 in the conference.
Number-five seed Andre Janasik
defeated Virginia's Chris Hall 7-6, 6
2. His record now stands at 16-4 and
2-0. Jimmy Weilbacher, the number
six seed and North Carolina's other
captain, defeated Laurent Provost 6
2. 75. upping his record to 21-9 and
UNC's only loss in the singles
matchups came from sophomore
Thomas Tanner, the Tar Heels'
number four seed. Tanner started

impressively, clobbering Bill Grona 6
1 in the first set. He may have been
playing over his head, though, and
lost the second set in a heart breaker,
7-6. Obviously frustrated, Tanner
suffered through the third set, losing
The loss dropped his record to 19
10 overall, and gave him his first loss
in the ACC.
"1 have to give Grona all the
credit," Morris said. "Thomas started
out well maybe too well, and then
he got mentally blocked. Grona
picked up his serve and overpowered
him until the end. It was a good
match, though. Thomas played well."
Tanner recovered from his loss in
the singles round to team up with
Jones in the doubles matchups.
Playing in the number-two spot
behind Pollack and Johnson, the two
provided the only pleasantries for
UNC in the second half of the match,
defeating Raleigh Draper and Hall.
At first it appeared that Tanner was
going to allow his singles play to effect
his doubles, as both he and Jones
played sloppy tennis in the first set,

picking up a dropped third strike
They recovered, however, and
blistered through the rest of the match
The number-one and number-three
doubles seeds were a disappointment,
though. Pollack and Johnson were
obviously off their game, . and were
overpowered by Clark and Anderson
The third-seeded duo, consisting of
Janasik and the ever-enthusiastic Joe
Frairson, was stumped by Virginia's
team of Kanstoroom and Scott
Docker, 6-0, 6-2.
Morris was obviously let down by
his team's play in the doubles round.
"I was disappointed by the dou
bles," he said. "We did dig out
number two, but I don't think we
played very consistently.
"Some of the matchups were just
against better teams. I think we
relaxed for the doubles, because their
was no way we could lose. I tried
to warn them - I knew that Virginia
wouldn't, stop, fighting just because ,
they were" behind. lJdid my best to
pump them up for doubles just like
I did the singles, and remind them
of how important it was."
Virginia has a history of fighting
UNC, actually. Though they usually
finish in the bottom half of the
conference, whereas the Tar Heels
finish at least in contention for the
top (before 1986, their last losing
season was in 1957), North Carolina
has only defeated Virginia in four out
of 10 matches dating to when Morris
arrived in 1981.

UNC opened its conference schedule
by easily defeating Maryland 8-1 on
In women's action, the Tar Heels
continued their losing ways by
dropping two tight matches, to

Christian University on Saturday (5-4).

It's the kind of thing you like to
hear about this time of year, when
the weather's a7warmin the flowers
are a-bloomin' and girls in bikinis are

Yes, folks, it's time for spring and
the great baseball stories that come
with it, like the one about the rookie
pitcher starting his first game who
blows away the powerhouse oppo
nent and earns national recognition
Well, this isn't exactly the big
leagues, and North Carolina fresh
man Frank Maney probably won't
make headlines in the Washington
Post. But the lefty from Asheville did
open a few eyes and drop a few
batting averages Sunday, when he
threw seven shut-out innings, allow
ing just four hits and striking out 10
as the Tar Heels toppled 13th-ranked
"It's something we felt he could
do," UNC coach Mike Roberts said.
"But you just don't expect a youngster
to go out and four-hit a team like
Maney had made three appearan
ces before Sunday, all in relief roles.
He hurled a total of two and two
thirds innings in all three and picked
up two victories.
But with regular starter Kreg
Gresham sidelined with a sore elbow,
Roberts decided to give Maney a shot
in the starting role. And the rookie
responded as if he had been doing
it all year long.
"He showed a lot of control early,"
catcher Jesse Levis said. "He estab
lished his strike zone early, and he
owned it. He owned it the whole
Indeed, Maney didn't walk a single
batter and three of his ten strike outs
were of the looking variety.
"I moved the ball in and out very
well," Maney said. "I got the pitches
over at the right times."
"When you throw strikes and don't
walk anybody, people really have to
NC-Central wins -Division 11 title
From Associated Press reports
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Coach.
Mike Bernard's best offense was his
defense as North Carolina Central
captured its first NCAA Division II
The Eagles, led by Antoine Sifford
with 21 points and nine rebounds,
held Southeast Missouri scoreless
from the field for the last 7:58 of the
first half Saturday night en route to
a 73-46 victory.
The winning margin was the largest
ever in the championship game. The
previous mark was set in 1957 when
Wheaton, 111., beat Kentucky Wes
"When we go out on the floor there
is one thing we do and that's play
man-to-man defense from buzzer to
buzzer," said Bernard, whose 13th
ranked Eagles held their opponents
to just 38 percent shooting over the
season to lead Division II in defense.
"That's our forte. We live and die with
starter ..lofts- UNC
swing the bat to beat you," Roberts
When the Tigers did connect with
Maney 's pitches, they usually popped
the ball up or sent short fly balls to
Tar Heel outfielders. Clemson never
had more than one runner on base
at any time against Maney or reliever
Jim Dougherty, who pitched the final
two innings to pick up his first save
of the season.
North Carolina didn't exactly
manhandle Tiger pitchers either, but
good timing made the Tar Heels' eight
hits more than enough. In the first
inning, after Clemson starter Alan
Botkin had given up two singles and
a walk to load the bases with two
out, North Carolina first baseman
Dedric Powell drew a free pass to
push across Brad Woodall and open
Botkin, who took the loss and
dropped to 2-2, was yanked with none
out in the second after giving up a
walk to shortstop Ron Maurer and
a double to third baseman Darren
Villani. Botkin's replacement, David
Tripp, got three straight outs but not
before a sacrifice fly by Levis brought
Maurer in for the Tar Heels' second
run, which was charged to Botkin.
Tripp went the rest of the way for
"I basically believe in a ball-control
offense, but if we have a chance to
break, well break. That's the type of
offense I grew up with from all the
coaches I played for," said Bernard,

Brockton and played on the Ken-

Clemson and was nearly as dominat
ing as Maney. He struck out eight
batters in seven innings, gave up four
hits and walked none. UNC scored
its final run off of Tripp in the bottom
of the eigth when a two-out infield
single by right fielder Scott Hughes
brought Dave Arendas home from
"We were doing a lot of key
hitting," Levis said. "We got the hits
when we needed them."
Roberts, however, is hoping for
more out of the offense in the future.
"I'm an aggressive-type coach," he .
said. "And right now our club is not
an aggressive-type offensive team."
Sunday's win capped off a long
weekend of baseball in Boshamer in
which the Tar Heels beat Georgia
Tech and split a pair with first-place
Clemson. North Carolina now stands
at 11-7 overall and 2-2 in the con
ference after dealing the Tigers (18
3, 6-1) their first conference loss.
"It's a confidence builder that we
know we can beat the teams at the
top," Roberts said.
Clemson nipped the Tar Heels on
Saturday, 4-3, on a sacrifice fly by
second baseman Henry Threadgill in
the ninth inning. UNC had taken a
3-2 lead in the fourth on a two-run
homer by Maurer, his third of the
season, but Threadgill tied it up with
a solo shot in the fifth and then won
it in the ninth.
Dougherty (1-1), who entered the
game in the eighth inning, took the
loss for the Tar Heels. He relieved
starter Michael Hoog, who allowed
three runs on five hits through the
first seven frames.
On Friday, UNC dumped Georgia
Tech, 6-1, behind a complete-game
effort from pitcher John Thoden and
home runs from Todd Nichols and
freshman Mark Kingston. Kingston's
three-run shot in the bottom of the
first was all Thoden needed, as he
allowed just four hits and struck out
seven to up his record to 4-0.
