2 Weekender Friday, November 4, 1977
Carolina basketball players receive
a respite from the six-week preseason
practice season while Tar Heel fans
get an early look at a contender for
the 1978 NCAA championship; the
Blues and the Whites mix it up in
Carmichael Auditorium this
Saturday following the Carolina
Clemson football game.
Teams had not been announced
when Weekender went to press in
mid-week, but Tar Heel Head
Basketball Coach Dean Smith
indicated the teams would be divided
as evenly as possible among
returning players, three freshmen
and one walk-on.
The game is a sellout.
Women's basketball eyes winning year

If enthusiasm and spirit alone could
produce victories, there would be little doubt

follow the men's game Saturday, the
enthusiastic coach speaks highly of her 1977
78 team, which includes seven players from
last year's 8-16 team. "The lack of a good
season last year has produced a positive
effect on this team. They want to win. They
definitely have the spirit and desire to win,"
But because basketball teams rely on
talent, experience and coaching and not
enthusiasm and spirit alone, Carolina must
be ready to produce some effective defense,
good rebounding and deadly shooting as it
faces a tough season. Its schedule includes
games with nationally ranked N.C. State,
Kentucky and Maryland, and participation
in the first-ever ACC women's tournament.
Alley, in her first year at UNC, said that
the team may not be ready to do that just

now, but that the Heels soon will find the
right combination. "There is going to be a
period of adjustment," Alley said. "We'll be

playing hard and aggressive all along."
