Track tunes up in home meet;
Waller qualifies for nationals
By STEVE WALSTON
You could almost hear a pin drop in
the Tin Can Sunday as Tisha Waller
prepared for her third and f nal attempt
in the women's high jump.
But the instantaneous applause that
echoed throughout the Joe Hilton In
doorTrack & Field Complex confirmed
that the third time was indeed a charm
for the UNC sophomore. Waller cleared
the bar, set at 5-11 12, to become a
provisional qualifier for the NCAA
Championships March 9-10 in Indian
apolis. Her prodigious leap highlighted
20' 1 12", placed third in the triple
jump and won the 60-yard hurdles with
a time of 7.88 seconds.
Couch and senior Kim Austin domi
nated the three events, with Austin
winning the triple jump (39'7 34") and
finishing runner-up to Couch in the
long jump and hurdles.
Couch said motivation was a prob
lem due to the lack of outside competi
tion. Duke, East Carolina, N.C. Central
and N.C. State sent only a few athletes,
while a few unattached performers,
including UNC coach and former de
cathlete Kevin McGorty, also com-
a day filled with personal bests for Tar peted.

Waller had nearly decided not to
compete before the meet began, since
she was the only female competitor in
the event. And few would have blamed
her or any of the other North Carolina
athletes for sub-par performances, in
light of the fact that the team had re
nt's difficult to get up for the meet
when you're competing against the
people on your team," Couch said.
Competing in multiple events is a
challenge, but Couch is a solid per
former in each of her events.
"It takes a lot out of me mentally,"
she said. "Physically, I'm in shape and
could compete forever, but there is a

"When I first got here, I felt like
asking the coach to just let me prac

Young talent is prevalent among this
year's Tar Heel thinclads, as evidenced
by freshman Lynda Lipson's victory in
the women's shot put competition.
Lipson's winning distance of 43' 12"
was two feet greater than that of her
"It's the best I've ever thrown, but
there's still room for improvement,"
Harlis Meaders captured top honors
in the men's shot put (50' 11 14"),

jump (6' 10"), and Kevin Brown (pole
vault) and Scott Fletcher (hurdles) fin
ished second only to Kevin McGorty.
In the pole vault competition, Brown
bettered his previous best by one foot.
UNC head coach Dennis Craddock
lauded the performances of Waller and
Brown, but noted that Tracy Cooke and
Kendra Mackey suffered injuries dur
ing the weekend competition.

bad," Craddock said. "But I feel good

What is wrong with the Demon
This was supposed to be a break
through year for Wake Forest, a team
that hasn't had a winning season or
reached postseason play since 1985.
New coach Dave Odom inherited four
returning starters and Georgetown
transfer Anthony Tucker. Some publi
cations predicted the Deacons could
finish as high as second in the ACC.
But all has not gone according to
plan. Both a winning season and the
NCAA Tournament are now question
marks, as Wake Forest heads into the
Smith Center tonight with a 7-9 mark,
0-5 in the ACC. They aren't exactly
improving either, eight of those losses
are in their last nine games and
Saturday's 97-69 loss to Duke may
have been the season's low point.
"It's the poorest we've played, there's
no question about that," Odom said.
"Sometimes you've got to bottom out
before you can build."
Not everyone seems to agree with
Odom. The honeymoon is over in Wake
Forest, and Deacon fans are beginning
to ask questions, such as "Why is this
team even in a position to 'bottom
out'?" Odom, a former Virginia assis
tant coach, has failed to provide a focus
for the Deacons. They often look lost
offensively a sin for a team this
The Duke game is an excellent ex
ample. Wake Forest turned the ball
over 25 times and shot 40 percent from
"Fundamentally, we are a poor team
right now, and that's the crux of our
problem," Odom said.
The Deacons' strength is their fi out
line, but even that has been disappoint
ing this year. Tucker, Sam Ivy and
Chris King weie listed as one of the
best forward groups in the country
during the preseason, but have f ailed to
dominate. All three have similar styles
a decent 15-foot jumper with better
moves close to the basket.
Tucker, a 6-8 sophomore, is the most
impressive athletically. He runs the
court well and has showed signs of
taking over games. Ivy, a 6-7 senioi,
has never recovered his sophomore foi m
(18.6 pts, 7.6 rebs), but is still the clos
est thing Wake has to a go-to man.
King, a 6-8 sophomore, can also be
that man at times. After leading the
Deacons in scoring and rebounding as
a freshman, people were predicting
stardom for King this year. He hasn't
been able to live up to his consecutive
30-point outings at the end of last sea
son (34 vs. N.C. State, 3 1 vs. Duke in
the ACC Tournament), but he has been
near the top of the ACC in shooting
percentage all year.
The trio's problem has been a ten
dency to disappear when the Deacons
need them. No one has stepped forward
as a dominant player or as a leader,
meaning Odom can never be sure who
will come to play.
'l"he key to the frontline's inconsis- ;
tency is the stiuggles of the man trying
to get them the ball, Derrick McQueen.
The 5-11 sophomore is another who
has failed to live up to his freshman
season. He has lost a lot of confidence, '
not what the leaderless Deacons need
from their point guard.
David Carlyle, a 6-8 senior, has
replaced 6-3 junior Robert Siler as the
shooting guard. It sounds like a bioken
recoid, but Carlyle has also been un
able to lecover his sophomore form.
The Deacons have been weak from the
outside and Carlyle"s declining skills
( I -9 vs. Duke) have not helped. Siler, a
jumping-jack, now provides the Dea
cons only punch off the bench (20 points
vs. Duke) and is their best defensive
player. Antonio Johnson, a 6-4 senior,
is a solid back-up at both guard posis
tions and small forward.
Ralph Kitley, a 6-10 senior, and Phil
Medlin, a 6-9 sophomore, provide beef
off the bench. Neither player has any
offensive skills or fits with Wake's up
tempo game. Both also play surpris
ingly soft post defense.

pointers, was the primary reason the
Tar Heels were able to whittle away at
the deficit. She led the Tar Heels with
23 points off the bench.
Duke got its biggest spread with
13:17 to go in the game. Kost made a
pair of free-throws to give the Blue
Devils a 60-48 lead. UNC clawed back
to within two on several occasions but
could not tie the game until Williams'
shot with 12 seconds left.
Duke never could put the Tar Heels
away. After Kim Oden fouled out with
1 :39 left, Kost completed a three-point
play to give the Blue Devils an 85-77
lead. Two Lamb three-pointers trimmed
the score to 85-83, however.
The Blue Devils led 87-83 when
LeAnn Kennedy went to the line to
shoot two. She made the f rst but missed
the second. But Lamb snatched the
rebound and scored to cut the deficit to
one. Morgan made one of two free

rebounder, forward I leatherThompson,

The Tar Heels return to action to
night at 6 p.m against the ninth-ranked
Virginia Cavaliers. UNC has not beaten
Virginia in six tries under Hatchell.
The Cavaliers, 15-3 and 3-1 in the ACC,
are coming off a 97-77 blowout win
over Georgia Tech on Saturday. Vir

its only ACC loss.
