Hurricanes almost give Heels
some stormy weather, 87-74
By MARK ANDERSON
Assistant Sports Editor
The Symptoms: a 27-point ACC
loss on the road and N.C. State com
ing to town in two days.
The Cure: devour a cupcake,
namely the Miami Hurricanes.
North Carolina coach Dean Smith
tried to fill the prescription Monday
night, but the Hurricanes proved to
be tough and hard to digest. The Tar
Heels needed a 14-4 run in the last
3:28 to pull out an 87-74 victory in
front of 19,042 at the Smith Center.
"We w ere certainly the better team,
but that's why we play the game,"
Miami coach Bill Foster agreed.
."Nobody gave us a snow ball's chance
in hell to win this game," he said, "but
it was a lot closer than 13 points."
After a sluggish start, UNC built
its biggest lead of the game, 43-26,
w ith 2:09 left in the first half. How
ever, after Smith brought in the UNC
bench, Miami closed to within 46-34
"I shouldn't have subbed when w e
were up 17," Smith said. "We gave
them a chance to say 'we're in the
ballgame' at halftime."
The pesky Hurricanes continued
to climb back into the game with a
14-4 run of their own to start the
Miami sophomore guard Jake
Morton, who finished with a game
high 24 points, led the spurt w ith two
baskets and one of his six three-pointers.
Freshman forward Doug Elliot
capped the run with a trey to tie the
game at 50 with 15:21 remaining.
"I felt we could win, and I think
our kids did, too," Foster said.
The Tar Heels answered by punch
ing the ball inside, where they had a
distinct advantage over the slender
Hurricanes. A Hubert Davis trifecta
was UNC's only basket outside 12
feet in the next 10 minutes. Scott
. Williams hit for eight of his team
high 20 points, and Rick Fox added
six of his 1 7 as the Tar Heels built an
eight-point lead at 73-65 with 5:12
But Morton refused to let the air go
out of the Hurricanes, as he buried
another three-pointer from the left
w ing. After Williams missed the front
end of a one-and-one, sophomore
guard Jerome Scott's 1 8-footer pulled
Miami w ithin three, 73-70, with 3:50
UNC finally put the Hurricanes
away behind a follow shot and jump
hook by Pete Chilcutt and a baseline
drive and dunk by Fox. King Rice
iced the game with five free throws
down the stretch.
"A lot of teams would have lost
that game," Smith said. "I have to
credit King Rice's leadership, be
cause we scored on almost all of our
last 10 possessions when we had to

Kevin Madden and UNC survived a scare against Miami
being thrashed 107-60 by Notre Dame
and 67-48 by DePaul in the last 1 0 days.
'That's as good as we can play," he
said. "I don't know how North Caro
lina feels about their effort, but I didn't
see anyone loafing out there. We earned
what we got."
In addition to Morton, junior center
Joe Wylie chipped in 17 points on 8-of-14
shooting to go with nine rebounds,
and Scott had 16 points.
The Tar Heels dominated play in the
lane, with Chilcutt hitting 7 of 8 shots
for 15 points. Chilcutt and Williams
had 1 1 rebounds apiece, as UNC
crushed Miami 45-29 on the boards.
UNC also hit from the outside, with
Davis nailing 3 of 4 treys on his way to
1 3 points, but the Tar Heels were never
able to pull away from the Hurricanes.

thing to do with it.

happen," Fox said. "We needed to be

Mark Bibbs, Bill Hildeboit, John
Lomax and Jonathan Martin, four can
didates for student body president,
presented their platforms and fielded
questions Monday at a forum held by
the Dialectic and Philanthropic Socie
ties. Bibbs, a sophomore from Kings
Mountain, said he is running for stu
dent body president to fulfill his "com
mitment to service." He said he wants
to improve financial, educational, stu
dent and food services at the Univer
sity. "Under each, 1 have a goal that can
be reached in 12 calendar months."
He said one objection to his proposal
that the meal card be used at downtown
restaurants that it would drive Mar
riott further into debt is irrelevant.
"It shouldn't matter to students whether
Marriott gets a profit. I don't care. I
want Marriott gone."
Bibbs said racism is a problem within
the University's Greek system. He said
he would add to his cabinet a depart
ment of Greek affairs, made up of rep
resentatives from fraternities and so
rorities, to work on the problem.
Hildeboit, a junior from Winston
Salem, said his experience as student
govememnt's town council liaison
would help him be an advocate for
students and would bring some profes
sionalism to student government.
He said he would publish a guide to
classes at UNC called, 'The Indispen
sible Guide to Class at Chapel Hill."
The book would be written by students
and funded by student fees.
Hildeboit said he wanted to create a

more patient and work the ball inside
Smith also accepted some of the
blame for UNC's sluggish play. "I
didn't help by working them 2 12
hours yesterday in practice," he said.
"I was trying to wake them up."
Fox and Rice may have been the
only Tar Heels who were awake at
the start of the game. Fox had six
points and Rice four as UNC struggled
to a 1 2-7 lead. After the Hurricanes
cut the lead to 14-1 1, Rice answered
with a three-pointer from the left wing
and found George Lynch on the break
for a dunk. A Chilcutt trifecta from
the top of the key gave the Tar heels
a 22-11 lead.
But Maimi fought back again.
Freshman forward Samarr Logan hit

jumper closed the score to 22-1 9 with

co-op system at UNC, in which stu
dents would get academic credit for a
semester spent on the job. He said the
system, already in use at N.C. State
University, would help students better
compete for jobs after graduation.
Hildeboit said he would work to
establish a permanent site for the Black
Cultural Center and promote environ
mental reform on campus.
Lomax, a junior from Hickory, said
he planned to concentrate on financial
aid, acceptable expansion of the cam
pus and communication with UNC ad
ministrators and state legislators.
"Too many students at this Univer
sity graduate with a large debt," Lomax
said. "We must find alternative sources
Lomax said decisions to expand and
alter the campus must involve students.
He said he would work to ensure that
the Black Cultural Center had a perma
nent home and would keep students
informed of campus expansion.
Lomax said rather than supporting
the use of meal cards downtown, he
would like to have franchise restau

Thirty-eight campus organizations
will participate in this year's annual
Student Congress budget process,
which begins this week with finance
Eleven more groups are participat
ing than last year.
Although many organizations came
to the orientation meeting detailing the
budget procedure, some of them did
not meet the deadline, said Donnie
Esposito, chairman of the congress
"All the big ones made it," Esposito
said. "Now we will sit down and go
over with them their budget requests."
The committee will work with the
organizations and suggest changes if
they are needed, he said.
The organizations will meet with the
committee between Thursday and
Sunday and discuss their requests.
Along with the committee's recom
mendations, the committee and the
individual organizations will present
the final budget requests to the full
congress Feb. 24.
Some groups, such as Alpha Phi
Omega and the AIESEC organization,
withdrew from the budget process last

The Student Congress Rules and
Judiciary Committee voted Sunday
night to table a proposal calling for
changes in the budget process and the
financial management of student
The proposal has been tabled several
times previously, nearly a year after the
changes were first suggested.
The budget process and the subse
quent accounting system used by stu
dent groups is confusing, and revision
is necessary to help groups better
manage their funds, said senior Jody
Beasley, former student body treasurer
and author of the proposal.
Beasley first drew up the proposal
last February, and it went before the
Rules and Judiciary Committee in early
April. The proposal has been tabled
several times since, most recently late
last month and again Sunday.
The delay is a result of the nature of
the reforms suggested by the proposal,
said Student Congress Speaker Gene
Davis. "It is such a sweeping change
that we wanted to give the congress a
chance to think about it. And we have.
It's been a semester since it was first
proposed," he said.
The proposal will be considered again
at the Feb. 16 Rules and Judiciary Com

year and decided not to apply for funds
this year, Esposito said.
Congress decides how much each
organization will be allotted for the
upcoming year, and money will be
distributed in May.
The 38 oreanizations requested a
total of $257994.16 for the 1990-91
year, with Student Television (STV)
asking for the most money at $29,200.
The money allotted to STV will go
toward the rising costs of programming
since the station joined Cable Vision
Industries of Orange County, saidTena
Williamson, station manager.
'The biggest increase has been be
cause of our program manager's job,"
Williamson said. "Since we went to the
new cable company, we've had to in
crease the requirements of the job and
also increase the minimum wage.
"We also need extra money in case
any of our equipment breaks. Most of
our equipment is quite old," she said.
The Phoenix Student Newsweekly
had the biggest increase from last year
in requesting money. The Phoenix
requested $16,957 last year and re
ceived $17,158 from congress. The
newsweekly requested $27,294 for next

mittee meeting. If the committee passes
the proposal, it will go before the con
gress for final consideration.
The current budget and accounting
processes confuse the student groups,
and they often have a false sense of the
amount of money directly available to
them, Beasley said.
A student group's income consists
of student government appropriations
and donations gained through methods
such as fund raising. Given a case in
which student government awards a
group a budget of $1,000 $500 of
which is cash from, student govern
ment, with the other $500 in the form of
anticipated donations some confusion
could arise as to how much money the
group actually has for expenditures,
While the funding from student
government is a cash sum to which the
student group has direct access, the do
nations may not arrive until the year's
end. Therefore, the group may operate
as if it possesses the full $ 1 000 while it
actually has only $500 immediately
available in cash, Beasley said. This
difference leads to overspending and
potential debt situations for student
'The budget is a planning tool, not
an operations tool," Beasley said. "The
budget exists just to plan the year out."
said the large increase was to pay for
the new computer system.
"If you look at the budget for just the
printing of the newspaper, it is less this
year than what it was last year. After
you trim off all the fat, we are really
asking for a realistic amount," he said.
Carol Hooks, student body treas
urer, said the committee only estimated
$198,000 for requests from the organi
zations. "We've also taken into account
whether the DTH referendum goes
through," Hooks said, referring the
proposal on this month's ballot for the
newspaper to return its student fees
over the next three years.
"I wanted to make sure it (the refer
endum) goes through before we bal
ance the budget," she said. "We'll know
by the final Student Congress meeting
whether the money is coming back."
Scott Spanbauer, president of the
Psychology Club, said his group asked
for help from congress this year to get
quality speakers for their meetings.
"We also raise money through dues
and fund-raisers, but some speakers
want to stay a couple of nights, and that
gets kind of expensive, so we needed
extra mone." The club requested $600
for the next academic year.
Under the proposal, overspending
will be prevented, Beasley said. Before
a group is able to spend money from its
expense account, sufficient cash must
be on reserve. The practice is similar to
a checking account, he said.
The proposal calls for little altera
tion in the congressional budgeting
process. The budget request process
would remain unchanged, Beasley said.
But the process of appropriating funds
to the groups would be slightly revised.
As the process is now, groups attend
the budget hearings, where their pro
grams are reduced, he said.
"For some organizations, this can
adversely affect their campus character
and ability to stimulate interest among
members," Beasley stated in the pro
posal. "It is very morale-crushing to
leave the budget process at half the size
of when entered."
Under the proposal, "the cuts will
only serve as hypothetical deductions
for the purposes of arriving at the Stu
dent Government appropriation
Some congress members agree that
some changes could be helpful to stu
dent groups and would increase the ac
countability of the groups.
"We are excited about the restruc
turing of these financial procedures,"
