Cavaliers topple UNC; Heels still wioless m ACC
By NEIL AMATO
Alter a lialf 0f subpar play and a key
. kcr "ni adjustment by the coach
es atf. thc ninth-ranked Virginia
Cavaliers' women's basketball team
shipped up on Nonh Carolina, 81-63,
to hand the Tar I leels their fifth confer
ence loss in five tries.
In the second 20 minutes at
Carmichael Auditorium Monday night,
Virginia was too much for UNC,
outscoring the Tar Heels 43-25 by
employing a full court trap w Inch foiced
Virginia upped its record to 16-3, 4
1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
North Carolina diopped to 9-8 and 0-5.
Hie Tar Heels were led by Kareema
Williams, who scored 12 and pulled
down six rebounds befoie fouling out.
Junior Kim Oden pouied in 10 points,
mostly on outside shots, but was also
disqualified for fouls.
Heather Burge, a 6-4 freshman, led
the Cavaliers with 20 points and 10
rebounds. Sophomore TammiReiss and
freshman Dena Evans scored 17 apiece
and combined for five three-pointers.
It was defense in the second half that
spelled victory. Virginia forced nine
second-half turnovers and held the Tar
Heels to 7-of-22 shooting (.318). Vir
ginia coach Debbie Ryan credited one
of her assistants with the defensive
"Coach (Frank) DiLeo noticed that
we were playing into their hands in the
first half because they were getting it
into a half-court contest," Ryan said.
"Putting it into a full-court game gives
us back our athleticism. They turned
the ball over a little bit more and we got
some quick baskets."
Getting quick scores was something
that happened often for Virginia in the
second stanza. After a 38-38 halftime
score. North Carolina's offensive well
ran dry. After a basket by Williams
1:10 into the half, Virginia held the Tar
Heels scoreless for nearly six minutes
when Oden, who hit 5 of 6 field goals,
nailed a 1 6-footer to cut the lead to 5 1 -42.
But then, Virginia exploded. The
Cavaliers went on a 12-4 run to build a
63-47 lead with 7:26 remaining. Burge
whose twin sister Heidi, also 6-4,
scored four for the Cavaliers in limited
action capped off the spurt with a
steal at midcourt that resulted in a near
dunk. Yes, a dunk. Burge grazed the
rim with her hand as the ball went in off
the back of the rim.
Can she really dunk?
"I can almost do it," the Palos Verdes,
Calif, freshman said. "I just can't hold
onto the ball."
"She's getting there," Ryan said. i
know she's not that far away."
As that mystery remains unsolved,
so does the question of when UNC will
start playing 40 minutes of quality
basketball. The Tar Heels performed
almost to perfection in the fust half,
shooting well from the field and the
line. In the second half, however,
Virginia's press got to them.
"That's the first time this year we've
had trouble with the press," UNC head
coach Sylvia Hatchell said. "We played
a great first half. If we can put together
two halves like the first half, we can
beat the No. 9-ranked team in the coun
try." Hatchell's sentiments were correct.
The Tar Heels held Burge to eight first
half points and limited speedy sopho
more Dawn Staley, last season's ACC
Rookie of the Year, to six in the first 20
minutes and 13 for the game.
But Reiss, Burge and Evans domi
nated the second half, combining for 30
points. Evans, who provided an offen
sive spark off the bench, hit 4 of 8 field
goals, including two trifectas..
"I think the second half was typical
of Dena's performance," Ryan said.
"She has had many minutes and this is
a normal performance for her. This is
what I expect from her. She creates
problems for other teams because they
have to deal with another perimeter

The North Carolina wrestling team
faces rival N.C. State in its first confer
ence match tonight at 7:30 p.m. in
After winning the ACC title five
years in a row, the Tar Heels finally
took second place to the Wolfpack last
ear. Like every match between these
two perennial conference powers,
tonight's should be significant in de
ciding the ACC champion.
UNC goes into the meeting with a 6
5 record, but four of those losses came
at the hands of schools in the Top 20.
The Tar Heels have lost to Penn State
and Oklahoma and twice to Iowa State.
UNC is coming off a strong per

National Dual Meet, which involved
the top 1 6 teams in the nation. The Tar
Heels upset 8th-ranked Michigan to
finish in eighth place but would have
been higher if they had not lost by one
point to Oklahoma. In that match, UNC
won more classes but forfeited in the
150-pound weight division because of
injuries, costing the Tar Heels six points.
If North Carolina is going to defeat
the Wolfpack, the young members of
the team will have to come through
again. Seven of the 10 weight classes
could be filled by either pure or redshirt
freshmen. Three of the freshmen have
the ability to contend for national hon
ors: Shane Camera in the 167177
pound class, Dean Moscovic at 1 50 and
Shawn Hocker at heavyweight.
With so much inexperience, the Tar
Heels are lucky to have four excellent
seniors to provide leadership. All
American Doug Wyland, along with
John Welch, Ben Oberly and Darryl
Clark provide the experience UNC
The Wolfpack are extremely strong
at the 118-pound, 142-pound, 150
pound, 177-pound and 190-pound di
visions. Lam feels confident that
Wyland and Welch should win in the
126-pound and 134-pound classes,
respectively. Oberly will have a tough
time but has a good chance at winning
in the 177-pound division. The crucial
individual matches will come in the
142-pound and 150-pound classes.
UNC must win those two matches to
have a shot at winning the meet.
North Carolina must stay aggressive
as it has all ear long to be able to hold
on for a win against N.C. State.
"We need to be an offensive team,"
Lam said. "We want to try to put our
opponents on their backs, because it's
nioie exciting that way."

HeatherThompson and UNC ran into Virginia, losing 81-63 .
from page. 1
it needed to come back and salvage a
deadlock at the break.
The Deacs, playing without point
guard Derrick McQueen, who was out
w.ith a sprained ankle, continued their
ball-handling follies in the second half,
giving the ball up 10 more times. This
time, however, the Tar Heels didn't let
Wake mistakes go as unnoticed, shoot
ing 60 percent from the field to slowly
expand a lead they would never relin
quish. "We got up on them a little better in
the second half," Fox said. "We didn't
give them the easy look."
Wake forward Sam Ivy led all scor
ers with 23 points on 9-of-1 2 shooting.
His baseline jumper with 4:27 to play
cut the Tar Heel lead to six and kept the
alumni from taking off early to beat the
But North Carolina point guard King
Rice put the game away for good with
a three-point bomb 30 seconds later,
upping the Tar Heel lead to nine and
leaving the rest up to competent UNC
'That shot was very important," UNC
head coach Dean Smith said. "It gave
us some breathing room."
Rice finished the game with 12
points, six of which came on f ree throws
inside the final 1 :25. 1 Ie also had seven
assists and five steals.
Fox, who made just one of four shots
in the first period, missing all three of
his three-point attempts (part of a 1 -for-12
first-half performance from the Tar
Heels outside the semicircle), started to
Wake up in the second 20 minutes,
busting 6 of 8 attempts and 2 of 3 three
pointers to finish with a team-high 19
For those of you wondering why
Kenny Harris started in place of Rice
and then never saw the court afterward.
Rice missed Sunday's piactice with a
soie shoulder, and Smith has a policy
for that sort of thing.
"We have a rule that if you don't
practice the day before a game, you
don't play," he said.
Tor North Carolina, Monday's win
was a milestone of sorts. With the vic
tory, the Tar Heels moved into a tie
with Kentucky for fii st place on college
basketball's all-time victory list. Both
teams have 1,472 wins.
