LA MAIN A, Hawaii For the sec
ond day in a row, when the going got
tough, the Tar Heels got going.
Trailing Villanova by three points
with seven minutes left in the game, the
Tar Heels pulled off a perfectly exe
cuted 1 1-0 run over the next six min
utes to carry them to an exhilarating 78
68 victory in the semifinals of the Maui
Classic before 3,000 at the Lahaina
After leading for the entire first half,
UNC found itself trailing, 65-62, late in
the second stanza.
-' From that point on, the Tar Heels put
on a show good enough to write the first
words in the 1989 chapter of 'Text
book, Basketball: The Carolina Way."
Even UNC head coach Dean Smith,
usually not one to publicly praise his
team, was impressed.
'.The key was the last four minutes,"
Smith said. "We really executed from
that point forward.
."That's the key to having a good
season to be able to execute like that
in the last five minutes."
And execute the Tar Heels did.
They went inside Kevin Madden
sliced through the lane for a 10-foot
jumper to draw UNC to within one.
They went outside Rick Fox, who
led the Tar Heels with 23 points on a
sizzling 8 of 9 from the field, buried a
three-pointer from the left wing to put
UNC back up by two at 67-65. The
Wildcats never regained the lead.
They diditon defense Vox knocked
the ball loose from Villanova forward
Marc Dowdell and made a diving stab
to knock it toward midcourt. Hubert
Davis took it from there for a lei-up to
put the Tar Heels up by three with three
minutes to play.
After UNC freshman George Lynch
rebounded a Lance Miller trey attempt
that drew iron, Davis went to work
again. This time he took it inside and
drained a 10-foot baseline jumper with
six Wildcat arms in his face to put UNC
up and away at 71-65.
"Hubert made a big basket," Smith
said.: "He was supposed to take an out
side shot, but they came flying at him.
So he took it inside and made a tough

Villanova's 7-foot-3 center Tom
Greis led the Wildcats with seven re

North Carolina gradually rebuilt its
lead to six points, largely on the strength
of the inside play of Lynch and a pair of
three-point bombs from Rice and Fox.
When Madden canned a 14-footer in
the lane with five minutes left in the
half, UNC was up by a score of 34-28.
Villanova pulled even for the first
time with two minutes remaining when
Bain followed a missed lei-up with a
simple deuce to tie the score at 35.
But UNC freshman center Matt
Wenstrom knocked in a 10-foot jumper
from the left baseline and later added a
free throw to send the Tar Heels into the
locker room with a 38-35 advantage.
As Smith wrapped up his postgame
press conference Friday afternoon, in
the wake of the Tar Heels' 80-79 last
second victory over former Maryland
coach Lefty Driesell's James Madison
squad, he saw Rice leaving the room.
"Hey, King," Smith yelled, smiling.
"If the team bus is gone, my car is
parked next to the TV truck outside. I'll
take you ... if you promise to hit
another one like that."
"That" was Rice's you-had-to-see-it-to-believe-it
scoop shot at the buzzer
that capped the Tar Heels' fast and
furious comeback from a nine-point
deficit in the final minute of play.
With four seconds remaining and
the Tar Heels trailing by one, Rice took
an inbound pass from outside the three
point line, drove into a triangle of JMU
defenders and offered up an off-balance,

said. "I was supposed to screen for Rick

through the lane, lowering his shoulder
and attempting to draw a foul. There
was no whistle, however, only a buzzer

These weren't going to cover it. "I'm
just not a 'hoisted by one's own petard'
kind of guy," I thought. I was sunk.
There was not a word invented yet in
the English language that adequately
described the situation.
I sweated. I was pained, grieved,
mauled, cut to the quick, stung, an

even describe myself anymore; my life
was falling apart just because of some
rinky-dink college in Colorado and
some weirdo linguist named Roget.
This lasted for 70 minutes. And 28
seconds. The Tar Heels scored. Then
they scored again. Then the game was
over. I was rescued. I was healed. Sal
vaged. Extricated. Snatched from the
jaws of death. My bacon was saved.
And I got to write a winning story
one more time.

For those of you who are tired of
turkey leftovers, the North Carolina
wrestling team gave a few lessons in
how to cook up 10 tough Beavers in
Carmichael Auditorium Sunday af
ternoon. In a little over two hours, the Tar
Heels handed Oregon St. a 24-17
defeat and then headed off to their
team Thanksgiving dinner with a
brand new I -0 record under their belts.
It was not all a cakewalk for the Tar
Heels, and the opening match gave an
indication of how tough this species
of Beaver might be.
UNC freshman Jeff Vasquez never
trailed against OSU's Randy Price.
He led 4-3 going into the third period
and extended the lead to 5-3 with an
escape 10 seconds into the final pe
riod. Price pulled off a takedown right
before the buzzer, and the match ended
in a draw.
'That hurt us," UNC head coach
Bill Lam said. "I thought we had
outwrestled him the whole time, and
I didn't like to tie there.
"Jeff did a good job. He wrestled
really well, then he relaxed at the end
and it cost him the match. I felt he
went a little defensive. You cannot
try and protect a lead. You have to

Tar Heels to within one. Chilcutt's trey
with nine seconds remaining made it
79-78 in favor of the Dukes.
JMU forward Steve Hood, who
scorched UNC for 32 points on 14-of-20
shooting, then missed the front end
of a one-and-one opportunity to set up
Rice's heroic scene.
Wyland dominated throughout the

five seconds to go in the first period.
The Tar Heels entered the 134
pound match with an 8-2 lead, and
senior co-captain John Welch tacked
on four more points with a 14-2 major
decision over OSU's Steve Thorpe.

two two-point near falls in the match
and never trailed.

"Carmen did a good job," Lam
said. "He got stereotyped in his holds
and couldn't change them.
"His effort was good. We can
improve his wrestling, but we can't

Freshman Dean Moscovic gave
the Tar Heels a 1 5-5 advantage at the

"He did a great job," Lam said.
