UNC creates home away from home
BY BRIAN MACPHERSON
SPORTS EDITOR
RALEIGH Red seats, red
banners and red-clad fans sur
rounded them, but the North
Carolina gymnasts team made N.C.
State’s Reynolds Coliseum feel like
home on Friday.
The Tar Heels earned the sec
ond-highest team score (196.725)
in school history, behind only the
196.775 they earned a year ago in
the same building.
Performances like that con
tribute to a feeling of familiarity
every time the UNC team sets foot
in the gym. That familiarity breeds
confidence, which in turn leads to
even better performances.
“When we come in here, it’s not
an intimidating atmosphere,” said
UNC coach Derek Galvin. “When

some year.”
For his part, McCants just
expressed relief that the Tar Heels
were able to hold on.
“It seems like we still have lot to
change,” said McCants, who has
scored 25 points or more in seven
of UNC’s last nine games. “We have
20-point leads and we just break
down so badly. It is so unfortunate.”
His coach was a little less for
giving.
“You know the reason they don’t
give coaches guns?” Roy Williams
said. “Watch us play.”

Team members are well aware
of the success they’ve had at
Reynolds the Tar Heels have
won three of their last four meets
in the building.
“We talk about it,” said senior
Maddy Curley. “‘Oh, we’re home
this weekend, we’re going to State.’”
But most of the fans show up
wearing red and cheer loudly for
the home team, so individual team
members have to find a way to use
the atmosphere to their advantage.
“We feed off that because they’re
yelling ‘State, State, State,’ and
we’re like, ‘No, we’re over here,’”
said UNC sophomore Mikel
Hester, who won the all-around
competition on Friday.

Williams busts out of scoring slump
BY AARON Fin
SENIOR WRITER
Melvin Scott was sure he could
snap Jawad Williams out of his
funk. All Williams needed, Scott
contended, was to see the ball go in.
So the sharpshooting, smack
talking Scott challenged his fellow
North Carolina junior to some
shooting competitions.
“After practice, I tell him, ‘Hey,
you want some of this?” Scott said.
“You know, shooting and stuff
Many guys don’t want to shoot
against me. He beats me some
times, but I dominate him.
“But he’s a friend of mine, and I
tell him, ‘lt’s nothing, you’re just
missing shots. Once you see the
ball go in, you’ll be fine.’”
Williams was better than fine in
Sunday’s 97-86 win against
Maryland. He scored 23 points on
5-of-9 shooting from the floor and
13-of-l6 shooting at the free-throw
line. The 23 points were more
than he had scored in his previous
three games combined.
The difference, Williams said,
was a focus on scoring in the post.
“I realize, talking to my family,
my mother and sister, that my out
side shot is not falling and I need
ed to mix it up even more,”
Williams said. “So I decided to
take it to the basket more.”
Williams has struggled on the
interior since breaking his nose on
Jan. 11. The protective mask he
had to wear for six games affected
his vision and made him less
aggressive, he said. Even after
ditching the mask, Williams’ game
hardly resembled his stellar play
early in the season.
“He went through a stretch with
that mask where he wasn’t a very
good basketball player he was so
tentative,” said UNC coach Roy
Williams. “Since then, even when
he took the mask off, we’ve been
trying to get him to be more aggres
sive. And (Sunday) I think he was.”

Scott “dominates” Williams in those

North Carolina pitcher Alison Yin gave up five hits and no runs in five

UNC rebounds
with three wins
BY BRANDON COWARD
STAFF WRITER
RALEIGH The North
Carolina women’s softball team
eased the pain of losing its first two
games of the season by winning its
next three.
UNC dominated the Triangle
Classic, defeating Elon, James
Madison and Radford this week
end.
“With each game we played this
weekend, we started to come into
our own and play like the team
that we can be,” said senior Dionne
Streete.
The Tar Heels (3-2) might have
tallied even more wins this week
end, but the last game of the tour

started a rally, smacking a single
into center field. Senior
Natashalyn Snipes followed with
an almost identical single to center.
With no outs, it was the perfect
opportunity for Streete to break
open the game, hitting a single that
scored pinch-runner Theresa
Nicholas and left Streete standing
on second.
“I would attribute that hit to my
teammates getting on base,” Streete
said. “They’d both fought off two
strike counts to get on. I didn’t
want to leave them stranded.”
Streete’s shot sparked a three
run inning, opening the floodgates
for the Tar Heels.

Kat Peck’s mistakes, Radford (1-4)
couldn’t find a weakness in soph
omore Alison Yin.
Yin pitched five innings and
allowed five hits. She snuffed out
potential rallies in the first and
fourth innings, ending both
innings with strikeouts and run
ners stranded on base.
Senior Emily Price put UNC
ahead 6-0 in the bottom of the fifth
with a three-run blast over the left
field fence.
UNC ended the game an inning
later, scoring two more runs and
invoking the eight-run rule.
The two games on Friday
weren’t as lopsided as the one on
Saturday. The Tar Heels logged
their first two wins of the season,
a 4-1 victory against Elon and a 4-
0 shutout of James Madison.
Snipes said attention to detail
was the key to the team’s success.
“We pretty much performed as
expected this weekend, based on
our practices,” Snipes said. “We
were able to execute all the little
things that we’ve been working on,
like recognizing signals, putting
down bunts and capitalizing when
we catch the other team sleeping
on the field.”
While the little things were
important, it also helped to have
dominating pitching.
Sophomore Crystal Cox pitched
a one-hit shutout against JMU (1-
3) and combined with Yin to hold
Elon (2-1) to one run on five hits.
Snipes said the wins were impor
tant to help the team get back in a
groove, and she saw nothing but
good things for the coming season.
“I believe we are coming togeth
er now,” Snipes said. “We’ve gotten
over the first-game jitters and now
we’re into the real thing. We can’t
go anywhere but up.”
