UNC's 5-4 women's tennis victory
, over Northwestern Monday was one
of those that only a casual fan with
no loyalties to the sport could enjoy.
The match wasn't one of the
commonplace types that is settled
during the early singles matches. This
contest, instead, remained tied after
the singles, tied after two doubles
matches, and even tied after two sets
of the final doubles affair.
It lasted just over five hours and
felt the rush of the pre-daylight saving
time sunset. Only after both teams
and the few remaining fans moved
themselves from the UNC Tennis
Center to the lighted Cobb tennis
courts was the struggle finally

From staff and wire reports
DURHAM Even though they
finished second, the UNC golf team
still has to be a bit disappointed.
The Tar Heels fell just one stroke
short of winning the Iron Duke
Classic on Sunday. They had to settle
for second place in the rain-soaked
Champion Northwestern reported
in with rounds of 306-286-297 to
claim the tournament title with a 889
total. UNC led after two rounds with
totals of 290 and 301, but its final
round 299 gave the Tar Heels a 890
total and second place.
Host Duke and UNC-Charlotte
tied for third with 895 totals, while
East Tennessee State (896) completed
the top-five picture.
UNC's Jim Sowerwine led the Tar
Heels, firing a 218 with scores of 71-73-74.
thus earning a tie for fourth
place in the individual competition.
Brendan Kennedy ( 1 4th place), Pat
Moore and Tee Burton added scores
of 223, 224 and 225, respectively, to
aid the Tar Heels.
The linksters now have a 12-day
break before returning to action in
the tropical confines of Finley Golf
course for the Tar Heel Invatational
on Friday, April 7.
Final Four will bring big bettors
LAS VEGAS With Nevada-Las
Vegas safely out of the way, book
makers are anticipating their best
Final Four ever, with up to $20
million expected to be legally bet on
the three remaining college basketball
Duke is the favorite among odds
makers to win the national champion
ship, but sports book operators say
the lack of a dominant team and the
intense interest in the NCAA tour
nament should lead to a record
breaking betting handle.
"With these four teams, no matter
what the line is, well get a lot of
action," said Keith Glantz, manager
of the Palace Station sports book.
Bookmakers say the NCAA tour
nament is now the third biggest
betting event of the year, trailing only
the Super Bowl and the World Series
in the amount of money wagered.
Although no official records are
kept on individual sporting events,
most book operators are predicting
betting of from SI0 million to $20
million on the Final Four teams.
"It seems to have exploded this
year." said Lenny Del Genio, man
ager of the Frontier Hotel sports
book. "People who have never bet
anything are betting this tournament,
just like they might bet a Super Bowl
or a Kentucky Derby."
But, a UNLV win would have cost
bookmakers several million dollars in
lost bets, because the state's legal
sports books are forbidden from
taking bets on teams located within

doubles team (and 25th in the coun
try), took advantage of the familiar
Cobb facilities in the final set to beat
Lynn Nabors and Julie Willett 5-7,
"It's just exciting to see them play
their way out of a situation like that,"
said UNC coach Kitty Harrison, who
watched nervously as her team moved
its record to 7-9. "We always get
pumped up when we come over here
(to Cobb). 1 don't know what it is
about these courts."
The Tar Heels were in danger of
dropping their seventh straight match
after the first set of the final contest.
Barnes and Goblirsch fell behind 3
2 in the second set before storming
back to take the rest of the set's
The final set was owned by the
UNC duo. They seemed to gain
momentum after every game as they
breezed to a 5-1 lead. Northwestern
also fell victim to the Tar Heels' new
home court advantage. In fact, one
of the things that killed the Wildcats
was Nabors' spending more time
complaining about the lighting and
the court than concentrating on her
"Gina and Spencer needed that win
because they've taken it on the chin
lately," Harrison said. "We all have
the whole way around."
Barnes had just come off the closest
singles match of the day, as well.
Playing in the number two spot, she
squeaked by So Young Lee 6-1, 4-6,

7-6 (7-5). Lee broke Barnes' serve to
take a 3-1 lead in the last set, but
Barnes, broke right back. The two
exchanged service breaks once again
when the score was 4-4.
In the tiebreaker, Barnes led 4-2
and would have taken a commanding
5- 2 lead if an attempted drop shot
had not hit the top part of the net
and bounced back on her side.
The number two doubles team of
Valerie Farmer and Dianna
McCarthy easily took care of Tonya
Evans and Wendy Nelson 6-3, 6-2.
Meanwhile, Northwestern was even
ing up the score as Christina Schu
schel and Lindsay Matthews beat
Amy HoltKelli Sharp 6A, 6-4.
Early on, the Wildcats looked as
if they could make UNC's day a long
one. Fourth-seeded Willett stomped
Dana Kanell 6-1,6-1, and Matthews
defeated McCarthy at number five 6-2,6-1.
Each of the other four matches
were close, however, including
Barnes' win. Number six Gigi Neely
won her first set relatively easily, but
had to rally in the second to even
tually win 6-3, 7-5.
Goblirsch put together a rally of
her own in number one singles.
Trailing 3-2, she won eight of the next
nine games and held off Schuschel
6- 3, 6-4.
The only three-set match the Tar
Heels lost was at number three.
Farmer won her first set but wound
up losing to Nabors 6-3, 1-6, 4-6.
