Woody Durham, the Voice of the Tar
Heels on the Carolina basketball and
football networks, is not hosting the weekly
Dean Smith Show this season because he is
now a competitor with the television station
that produces the show.
Durham became news and sports director
of WRDU-TV in Durham (Channel 28) in
October, after leaving WFMY (Channel 12)
in Greensboro. He appears nightly on
WRDU's evening news broadcast. WTVD
(Channel II). another Durham television
station, produces the football and basketball
shows for Carolina and supplies tapes of the
shows to five other stations across the state.
"He's not a competitor as long as he's in
Greensboro." Jim Duncan, program
director for WTVD, said. "But when he's on
another station in the same market, he's in
direct competition with me. It was in
WTVD's best interest not to have
competition on the show."
Durham, who has hosted the show for six
years, hosted The Bill Dooley Show during
the recent football season, The decision by
WTVD to ask Durham not to host either
show was made when he accepted the
position at WRDU. Duncan said, but since
he did not-go on the air until Nov. I, he was
allowed to do the football show.
"Dooley called at the first of the season
and asked that we not enforce that rule until
the end of the (football) season." Duncan
said. "He was trying to get his program in
order and Woody was not on the air then.
We decided to ignore that he was competing
with us until football season was over."
Both coaches make the arrangements for
their shows, including finding a host. Smith
has arranged for Jim Heavner, producer of
the Tar Heel sports radio network, to be the
host of the basketball show this season.
Duncan said Smith knew in September that
Durham would not be allowed to do the
show this season.
"I'm flattered that I'm enough of a person
in this area to be a threat to them," Durham
He said he thought the shows were like a
package deal, since he did play-by-play for
the radio network, and added that other
schools and stations across the country have

While most everyone was home relaxing
and filling up on turkey, dressing, cranberry
sauce and pumpkin pie, the Tar Heel
wrestling team was working hard to keep its
weight down for the Southern Open
Wrestling Tournament Friday and Saturday
The Heels already have competed in two
preseason tournaments, the Monarch Open
'and the Carolina Invitational, but this was
the toughest competition so far.
Some of the biggest names in wrestling
over the past five or six years were among the
360 entrants in the tourney. John Peterson,
an Olympic champion in the 1976 games;
Wade Schalles, a three-time national champ
from Clarion State and now Clemson coach;
Tom Milkovich, a two-time national champ
from Michigan State; and Mark Johnson, a
national champ from Michigan. Johnson
beat Schalles in a semifinal bout at 177
Despite the fierce competition, Coach Bill
Lam's Tar Heels managed one champion
and two third-place finishers. The Heels'
champion was Jeff Reintgen at 150. "Jeff did
a super job," Lam said.
In the semifinals, Reintgen defeated an
opponent from Oklahoma State, the team
runner-up in the national tournament last
year. Reintgen then took the finals with a
decision ver an opponent from Alabama.j,-
"He's the first person from UNO to ever
win the Southern Open," Lam said. "Arid a
lot of times you'll find the winners of this
tournament placing in the nationals."
The other two Tar Heels to place were
Carter Mario at 1 58 and Clayton Barnard at
Another Tar Heel that had a good chance
to place was freshman Kenny Evans.
Because of an injury, he was unable to
wrestle any of his consolation bouts and
finished sixth. Lam also said Dave Juergens
at 142 had a fine performance.
"The entire team did a great job," Lam
said. "The caliber of the tournament was
really tough. Now we're looking forward to
opening our dual-meet season with Clemson
next Wednesday. So far, everything we've
done could be considered preseason in the
sense that no team scores have been kept.
The real season starts with Clemson and they
are going to be tough."

Alley makes coaching debut
as women open here tonight
By WILL WILSON
The Carolina women's basketball team begins its quest to
improve on its dismal 8-16 record of last year when it opens
its 1977-78 season 7:30 tonight in Carmichael Auditorium
against Virginia Union.
First-year Coach Jennifer Alley has sent her squad
through nearly two months of organized practice in
preparation for the rugged 26-game regular-season schedule
that includes such national powers as N.C. State, Old
Dominion, Maryland and Kentucky. According to Alley,
that two-month period may have been about one week too
"We really looked great against Duke (in a scrimmage last
week), but we've been terrible in practice since," she said
Monday. "Maybe we should not have even played it."
, Even though Duke is one of the weaker Division 1 teams in
the state. Alley still felt the scrimmage was valuable.
"We learned what we wanted to learn," she said.
The only information Alley has about Virginia Union is its
roster, which lists the tallest player at 6-foot-l, but little
height otherwise. It lost to Delaware State last week in its
season opener, 63-62, before playing at Virginia Monday
"In women's basketball, you don't always get to see a team
before you play them," she sayd. "But I feel we can
compensate for anything we see after the first three or four
Alley said she plans to keep that same philosophy
throughout the season, even against the toughest teams.
"We can compete with anyone on our schedule as long as
we play the type of defense we're trying to," she said. "We

have to control the opponent's offense we can't let them
Alley has had trouble speeding up the Tar Heel offense,
which was more patterned last season under former Coach
"The offense has improved a lot (since the Blue-White
scrimmage three weeks ago)," she said. "They were trying to
go faster than they were capable of handling the ball. I got
them to concentrate on the ball to improve their catchingand
handling of it."
Even with the two months of practice. Alley has not settled
on a starting lineup.
"I don't know what the best combination is," she said. "I'll
experiment in these games prior to Christmas. Not every
player is a good starter, although they don't always realize
Prominent on her list of possible starters are sophomore
Bernadette McGlade, an All-Division center last season;
junior Linda Matthews, returning after a year's absence; and
junior forward Cathy Shoemaker, Carolina's first full
scholarship women's basketball player.
Others Alley listed are freshmen Kelly Roche and April
Shaffer, sophomore transfer Kathy Sapp, junior Fran
Hardison and seniors Joan Leggett and Rochelle Small.
"The last kid I play Tuesday might be the first I put in
Friday (against Appalachian Stale)," she said. "I don't want
anybody to get the idea that they're the 15th player."
The schedule the team faces is considerably heavier than
the 22-game slate last year, and Alley is not sure whether that
is good or not.
"Most players would rather play every day than practice,
but I think you need some breaks. I don't think the schedule
is so demanding that it will hurt our performance. That three
week stretch on the road in February will be rough, though,"

"It's kind of like the tail wagging thedog,"
Durham said. "Channel 1 1 was allowed to
call the shots. I didn't think they were in a
position to do so.
"I'm disappointed. I'd like to do the show.
It's a lot of extra work, getting up early on
Sunday mornings after Saturday night
games and making long drives to do the
shows. Physically, I'll be better off. But at the
same time, I'd like to do it," Durham said.
"Dean Smith would no more have Norm
Sloan on his show than we would have our
competition on the show," Duncan said. "He
knew he couldn't continue when he came to
this area. He made that choice, we didn't. I
