Georgia team ranked in the top 20
as Coach Sam Paul’s 52nd-ranked
Tar Heels rallied with four singles
wins to beat the 14th-ranked
Bulldogs 5-2 on Saturday in an
indoor match at the Dan Magill
Tennis Complex.
Saturday was a near repeat of
what happened in Chapel Hill a
year ago as UNC rallied to beat the
Bulldogs (2-1) and their lineup of
three nationally ranked singles
players as the top four singles
matches all went to three sets, and
UNC (6-0) claimed wins in three
of them.
North Carolina junior Geoff
Boyd ended up scoring the clinch
ing point for UNC at No. 6 as he
defeated the Bulldogs’ Jason
Varela, 6-4, 6-2.
Senior Andy Metzler logged his
10th straight win this season in an
upset win against Georgia’s Matias
Ormaza (3-6,3-6, 6-3) at the sec
ond seed.
UNC wrestlers routed
LINCOLN, Neb. - Behind
three victories via fall, second
ranked Nebraska blanked the
North Carolina wrestling team, 47-
0, on Saturday at NU Coliseum.
With their second shutout loss
of the season, the Tar Heels are
now 4-11 overall in dual meets.
Nebraska’s Kyle Gubbels opened
the match with a win via fall at 197
pounds over the Tar Heels’ Venroy
July, and the Huskers (18-2) also
scored pins at 133 and 184 pounds.
Nebraska also picked up 12 points
thanks to forfeits at 149 and 174
pounds and claimed a technical fall
win at 165 pounds.

The team scored the highest of
all the teams at the meet for its
performance on vault in which
Hester scored a personal best of
North Carolina faltered on its
balance beam, though. The team
counted one fall, and others had
faulty starts.
“It’s been a little bit up and
down, but right now we’re starting
to get a lot more consistent,”
Robella said.
UNC sophomore Ashton
Buswell wrestled the closest bout
of the day, falling to the Huskers’
B.J. Wright, 5-3, at 157 pounds.
Mike Booth lost 7-1 to Nebraska’s
Dominick Moyer at 141 pounds,
and senior Ryan Adams saw his 11-
bout winning streak snapped with
an 8-3 loss to Nebraska heavy
weight Nathan McClain. Adams is
now 27-10 on the season.
Gerraughty sets UNC record
Gerraughty set a North Carolina
school record in the indoor shot
put toJhighlight the Tar Heels’ per
formance at the Virginia Tech
Challenge on Friday and Saturday.
Gerraughty threw for a mark of
61 feet, 5 inches to set the school
record. She came within inches of
setting the all-time NCAA shot put
mark of 61 feet, 91/2 inches set by
Teri I\inks of SMU in 1998.
Other strong performances
turned in by UNC at Virginia Tech
were by John Hubbard in the high
jump, Porscha Dobson in the 60-
meter hurdles and the men’s
4x400 relay team.
Hubbard won the high jump
event for the fourth time this sea

Dobson set a personal record in
the 60-meter hurdles with a time
of 8.41 seconds. The time provi
sionally qualified her for the NCAA
Championships. She set the fourth
best time in the Tar Heels’ indoor
history in the event.

team won its relay with a time of
But a rough day on beam for
UNC would be a successful one for
any of the other teams. The Tar
Heels occupied five of the top six
spots overall on the event.
“It’s just still early in the season,”
Bumpers said. “We’re kind of wait

to hit is towards the end when we

North Carolina point guard Ivory Latta (seated) reacts in disbelief to a call late in the second half of the
Tar Heels' 89-79 loss to Duke on Saturday. Latta led UNC with 25 points and also dished out three assists.
Eventually, though, Latta could
n’t hang with the seasoned veter
ans on the Duke squad, which
prompted Latta tp take a moral
from the loss.
“Every game I learn a lesson,”
Latta said. “I think what I’m going
to take out of this game is, play
defense. ... Whether it’s scoring,
whether it’s defense or giving them
an open pass or whatever, I’ve just
got to do what I’ve got to do to get
my team a win.”
While Latta carried the Tar
Heels through the first half, Little
bloomed late on the scoreboard.
In the second half, Little scored
10 points and brought down five
“I thought we scored enough
points to win,” Hatchell said. “I
thought we were ready. Duke
made shots. They made 3-point
shots, and that was the difference
in the game.”
UNC’s inexperience which
contributed to the team’s 17
turnovers was countered by
Beard’s 31 points, Tillis’ two blocks
and Krapohl’s six-for-10 3-point
But still Latta and Beard dueled
throughout the game, each incit
ing runs for their respective team’s
In the same eight minutes that
Latta hit shots over the bigger and
stronger Duke team, Beard had
nine of her points, most of which
directly followed a Latta field goal.
“They have a lot of talent and
when they learn the game, they're
going to be unstoppable,” Beard
Tillis imparted some words of
wisdom for the freshmen.
“I remember when I was a
freshman, you might have a lot of
talent, but you just might not know
what to do in certain situations or
how to play certain players,” she
said. “That just comes with playing
in college for four years.”

Unlike the teams’ previous

But controlling the glass could
n’t prevent the Tar Heels from los
ing to Duke once again despite a
school-record crowd of 10,278.
Led by seniors Alana Beard,
Iciss Tillis and Vicki Krapohl, the
Blue Devils opened up a large lead
early in the second half and never
let UNC get closer than six points.
Duke made big shots whenever
it appeared the momentum was
shifting and came up with big
plays on defense to stop all of
UNC’s late charges.
“When the game got kind of
close, we got stops,” Beard said.
“And that’s what great teams do
they get stops when the game is
Beard scored a quiet if such a
thing is possible 3l points on 9-
16 shooting.
“I think the shots that I took
were right at the end of the shot
clock, so I think the team did a
nice job of moving the ball, keep
ing the floor spread and getting a
lot of penetration and kicking it
out,” Beard said. “They all came
within the context of the offense.”
High point totals are typical
from Beard, one of the premier
talents in the country, but the
wild card for Duke on Saturday
was the play of Krapohl, a reserve
With the UNC defense forced to
key on Duke’s other offensive
weapons, Krapohl was able to slip
into open spaces and make good
on six of her 10 3-point attempts.

great players that they can’t stop

everything,” Krapohl said. “I got
really wide-open looks, and I was
just able to knock it down.”
In all, the Blue Devils knocked
down 12 of 23 treys. But Hatchell
said she was not disappointed with
her team’s defensive effort.
She said she was proud of her
team despite the loss and added
that there was very little she would
change if the teams met again in
the ACC Tournament.
“We’ve got to get on the shoot
ers a little better that’s the only
thing I’d do different,” Hatchell
said. “I wouldn’t do anything any
different the whole game....
“They’ve got big-time players,
and they stepped up in a big game,
but they’re not going to make
those in every game.”
But for players like junior
Nikita Bell who have never beaten
Duke in their careers, the ever
growing losing streak to their rival
is discouraging.
“It’s real frustrating what am
I, 0-8 against them now?” Bell
said. “Every time I play anybody, I
just want to win big, but especial
ly with the rivalry. It’s a big deal to
me because I know how important
it is.
“We get overlooked a lot of
times because of them, but I guess
we just have to prove ourselves
and beat them.”
But after watching UNC make
significant improvements from the
teams’ previous meeting, even
Duke coach Gail Goestenkors
knows the difference between the
two teams is diminishing.
Said Goestenkors, “Well; if this
game is indicative of how big the
gap is, then it’s not really that big a
