BACK IN THE FAST LANE
Heels return to
court, crush BC
BY GREGG FOUND
The Tar Heels had just enjoyed
seven days of rest, but coach Roy
Williams decided a few of them
needed a little more.
Fed up with the lineup that
had just allowed back-to-back
easy layups, Williams yanked all
five players, sat them on the bench
and gave them a mouthful.
“I was ready
to choke some

His words were enough.
“Everybody got the message,’
said Alex Stepheson, who endured
the tongue-lashing with Ty
Lawson, Tyler Hansb rough, Danny
Green and Marcus Ginyard.
The lineup that replaced them
turned a one-point deficit into a
five-point lead. Minutes later the
original five returned and dropped
the hammer with a devastating

The N.C. Cancer Hospital will
centralize cancer treatment, just
as it promises to centralize cancer
care and research from all across
"The intention is that there
are about 100 counties in North
Carolina,* said Dr. Richard
Goldberg, UNC Lineberger

associate director and physician
in-chief of the cancer hospital.
“And we would like to reach all
UNC Hospitals now serves
only a few patients from outlying
counties, Goldberg said, but con
ferencing materials will connect
physicians around the state with
The new hospital will have more
clinical research areas, including a
unit for administering new drugs
“Our mission is patient care and
clinical research. It’s dear that in
order to serve our research mis

necessary,’ Goldberg said.

21-0 run to put the game out of
reach for a 91-69 victory against
Boston College (12-7,3-3 ACC) on
Fueled by a flow of early buckets
from Deon Thompson, who finished
with a career-high 17 points, UNC
(20-1,5-1) jumped out to M-4 lead,
erasing any doubt about the team
being rusty after a long break.
“Deon was everywhere tonight,’
Ginyard said of Thompson, who
also tied career highs in assists and
steals. “That’s where we need Deon.
Hopefully he can understand that
he has such a great impact on this
team when he plays like that*
Williams has said often that
Thompson sometimes just needs
his shots to fall before picking up
a head of confidence. That wasn’t
a problem tonight
‘He thinks he's Magic Johnson
in the locker room right now,’
Thompson and Wayne
Ellington were the two Tar Heel
starters who Williams put into
the game when he subbed all five
players out and Thompson imme
diately went to work.
He scored six points, grabbed
a rebound and stole a pass in just

North Carolina hasn't had an
seven-day break during regu

maybe it should become a staple
in the Thr Heels’ schedule after
sending Boston College packing
Not only was UNC running
with fresh legs and shooting lights
out but it also was able to put the
stops on the Eagles' ability to
establish any offensive rhythm.
If it was an improved defensive
effort that coach Roy Williams was
looking for, it was an improved
