of play. “When they foul us, you’ve
got to make them pay. They’re free
throws. They’re free. You’ve got to
hit those.”
And the Hurricanes (12-5,3-3)
almost completely abandoned any
effort to battle in the paint once
their two biggest interior threats
went to the bench.
“Miami is guard-oriented, so
guard-oriented,” May said. “We
knew they didn’t throw the ball in
(the post) much, just by scouting
them. We knew we could help out
on the guards more and just try to
deny the post.”
And that help from inside
allowed North Carolina to smoth
er the Hurricanes on the perim
eter.
Guillermo Diaz scored 24 sec
ond-halfpoints, many in acrobatic
fashion, and finished with 30. But
guards Robert Hite and Anthony
Harris, both typically double-figure
scorers, shot a combined 4-for-26
from the field.
Hite, who normally shoots
better than 40 percent from 3-
point range, missed all seven of
his attempts from behind the arc
Saturday.
“Jackie (Manuel) and Rashad
(McCants) did a great job, and
when I come off the bench, I have
to give all my energy to try to wear
those guys out,” Scott said. “If you
keep running them offensively,
they’ll wear down.”
Despite its dominance both
inside and out, though, North
Carolina couldn’t extend its lead
into double-digits until the waning
moments of the first half.
But a 3-pointer from Manuel
—one of two the senior hit in the
game sparked the Tar Heels on
an 11-1 run to close the half and a
7-0 run immediately following the
break.
“The last four minutes in the
half was the difference in the
game,” said Miami coach Frank
Haith. “We turned the ball over a
couple of times, and we put them
on the free-throw line quite a bit
during that stretch, and they were
very effective.”
The Hurricanes never chal
lenged again.
Manuel finished the game with
14 points, tying a season high, and
a total of five Tar Heels broke dou-

This time, it counted.
McCants jubilantly loped back
to his end of the court, giving both
the “Dynasty” symbol and a salute
to the raucous throng of 20,714 at
the Smith Center.
The three capped an 11-0 run
that put the Tar Heels up by 24
points and made the game per
manently out of reach for visiting
Miami in the 87-67 UNC win.
Even without any scoring con
tribution from McCants, the Tar
Heels were still up 14 at halftime.
But his involvement was key in
putting away the game.
“He’s the scorer on our team,”
said forward Jackie Manuel. “We’ve
got to keep him in the game to bal
ance our offense. We’ve got to get
it inside, but we’ve also got to keep
Rashad in the game and let Rashad
do what he does well.”
McCants was certainly in the
game after halftime, sinking four
of five shots in the closing frame.
At his best, he is arguably the most
dangerous scorer in college basket
ball.
“It’s pretty much I’m just looking
to take what the defense gives me,”
McCants said. “I just have to be
aggressive and take what I want.”
Miami coach Frank Haith, who
also faced McCants last year as
an assistant at Texas, praised the
junior’s resiliency in coming back
after halftime.
“He’s a great talent,” Haith said.
“He’s a tremendous talent, and he
played with poise today.”
McCants remained composed
throughout the game, never forc
ing his shot, never getting out of
rhythm. He passed up open looks

But freshman sensation Marvin
Williams, a model of consistency
throughout his rookie campaign
so far, struggled with his shot and
managed just seven points.
In the end, though, the Tar
Heels’ ability to take what was
given especially at the free
throw line made the difference
in yet another lopsided victory at
the Smith Center.
“I talked to our guys before
the game, and I said, ‘Buildings
don’t win games players do,’”
said UNC coach Roy Williams.
“We turned it over more than I
wanted to and didn’t make all

to feed the ball inside, notching
four assists for the game.
The performance was another
sign of McCants’ improved atti
tude this season, as he is more
concerned with the scoreboard
than his stat line.
“Last year, it was more about
getting the shots,” said UNC cen
ter Sean May. “This year, he’s just
taking his time and letting the
game come to him. He’s getting us
involved.... He had like six assists
at Clemson, and he still scored 23
points.
“He wasn’t aware that he was
distributing the ball that much. He
doesn’t know how much attention
he brings to the game.”
It was this improved, unselfish
McCants who was the only player
on the bench standing up with five
minutes left in the game and the
outcome already decided.
“I think this year he’s grown tre
mendously, a whole lot,” Manuel
said. “He knows when to take a
shot, and he knows when not to
take a shot. I think that’s helped
his game out a whole lot.”

Tar Heel loses close match to Nebraska Goliath
BY AL KILLEFFER
STAFF WRITER
After a strong 25-12 win
against Virginia on Friday night,
the North Carolina men’s wres
tling team looked poised to take
on the seventh-ranked Nebraska
Cornhuskers on Saturday in a
match where it knew its approach
could be anything but cavalier.
While the Tar Heels put up a
fight, taking a 7-0 lead early on, they
eventually fell to Nebraska 34-7.
“On paper, we’ve got no chance
against a team like Nebraska,” said
head coach C.D. Mock. “I just wanted
us to go out there and fight real hard,
and that’s exactly what we did.”
The heavyweight bout, in which
UNC’s Spencer Nadolsky squared
off against Nebraska’s Mitch
Manstedt, seemed to epitomize the
TENNIS

beat them they’re not going to
give us the match.”
The Tar Heels’ evening match
against Elon was canceled due to
inclement weather.
UNC coach Brian Kalbas was
glad to face No. 18 Tennessee (0-1)
so soon in the season.
“To me having a match this
tough early, I think, is good because
it kind of gets your team ready for
what you’re going to face through
out the year,” Kalbas said.
UNC (3-0) jumped to an early
advantage, clinching the doubles
point in two of three matches.
The nation’s 14th-ranked tan
dem of Mojzis and Kendall Cline
defeated the nation’s 51st-ranked
duo of Tennessee’s Sabita Maharaj
and Ashley Robards.
The Tar Heel’s No. 2 seed of
Jenna Long and Sara Anundsen
defeated Melissa Schaub and
Ghizela Schutte (8-5), and UNC’s
third pair of Caitlin Collins and
Alex Jurewitz fell to Blakeley
Griffith and Bryce Marable (8-3).
“This is our first test,” said Long,
a sophomore. “I felt like everyone
was super focused, win or lose,
stayed positive, and overall it was
a great match.”
At the No. 2 singles spot, senior
Cline clinched the team victory for
North Carolina by defeating Griffith
in two sets (6-4, 6-4). Cline, who
ranks 37th nationally, recorded her
seventh consecutive singles victory.
A nearly three-hour battle
between the No. 1 seeds highlight
ed the match, as Mojzis, ranked
25th, faced the No. 50 Maharaj.
Each claimed a set (7-6,6-7) before
Mojzis took the tiebreaker 10-7.
“I love it when it gets a little
crazy,” Mojzis said. “I love the ener
gy. I like the tough times. I feed off
that, I don’t like it when it’s dead.”
Long overcame falling behind at
the start of each set during the No. 3
seed match and staged strong come
backs to upset No. 107 Vicky Jones.
In the rest of singles play,
Anundsen easily defeated Schutte (6-
2,6-2), while Collins fell to Marable
(6-4,6-0) and Charlotte Tansill fell
to UT’s Schaub (6-5,7-5).
“It was important that we stay
composed, stay positive because if
we didn’t it would give (UT) a lot of
momentum and confidence,” Kalbas
said. “We did that today throughout,
even the matches we lost.”

Tar Heels’ struggle. Weighing in at
285, Manstedt enjoyed not only a
55-pound advantage over Nadolsky
but the added benefit of a few extra
inches as well.
As the pair shook hands in the
center of the ring, it was hard to
believe a UNC David had any chance
against the corn-fed Goliath at all.
There’s a reason, of course,
Nadolsky wrestles heavyweight.
His strength enables him to stand
up to opponents twice his size.
In fact, Nadolsky said he realized
quickly that “(Manstedt) wasn’t
ever going to take me down.”
The pair went back and forth
during the first period, but with
neither making a successiul strike,
the duel remained scoreless at the
sound of the first buzzer.

“Last week, we gave them a good
match and fought hard, but today
we just came out flat,” said Shaw,
who provided UNC with its only
major decision of the afternoon.
“Nebraska’s a great team. You’ve
got to come out with that ‘Eye of

minutes.”

become completely silent. With
the Tar Heels losing 31-7, the crowd
was well aware this was their last
chance for redemption.
In the second period, Manstedt
finally ended the scoring drought
with an escape that put him ahead
1-0 going into the third. Seconds
later, Nadolsky responded with a
reversal from which Manstedt then
escaped to even the score at 2-2.
In the remaining minutes of
regulation, Nadolsky succeeded in
warding off several Manstedt strikes
to take the match into overtime.
Once again, the first two periods
passed without score. Manstedt
seemed to be growing increasingly
frustrated, throwing up his hands
at one point in response to the
referee’s call of stalling.
In the third period, he secured
the team would respond better.
“We knew what (Nebraska) had
when we came out,” he said. “What
had to happen was for us to win
five (bouts) and, in the other five,
not get pinned.”
But Mock said his main disap
pointment was the number of pins
that Nebraska was able to get.
“My problem is when I’ve got
a group of guys out there fighting
hard or getting shots so then they
can get out there, and then I’ve got
guys who go out and get pinned,”

an escape and a point that put him

seconds, Nadolsky attempted a
takedown for the victory but failed
to get one.
The loss was a tough one for
Nadolsky, who had gone undefeated
in his five dual matches before it.
With wins in the first two bouts
by sophomore Bobby Shaw and
All-American Evan Sola, the stage
seemed to be set for a UNC triumph.
Unfortunately, the team’s initial vic
