Although an annual report pre
pared by UNC at Chapel Hill's
Affirmative Action Office showed
that the University failed to meet
required federal minority enrollment
percentages, officials say they have
"done their best" to comply.
The consent decree, filed by the
U.S. Department of Education in
198 1 , called for 10.6 percent minority
enrollment by December 1986 at the
11 predominantly white UNC
According to the Minority and
Female Presence Report, released in
December, blacks made up 7.8
percent of the fall 1986 enrollment
at UNC, which is considered a
predominantly white school. Whites
comprised more than 89 percent of

For North Carolina's lady hoops
ters, winning basketball games is as
simple as mastering the three D's.
That formula for success was
clearly displayed Wednesday night
before a crowd of 640 in Carmichael
Auditorium where the Tar Heels
overcame a sluggish start with their
defense, depth and desire to beat
back a talented Duke team, 76-68.
After trailing by as many as 11
points in the first half, No. 22 North
Carolina drew on the aforementi
oned attributes to storm back to tie
the game and eventually pull away
from a 60-all deadlock in the final
minutes. The win improved UNC to
8-3 overall and 2-0 in the ACC, while
25th-ranked Duke dropped to 9-3
Senior center Dawn Royster led
the balanced offensive cast for the
Tar Heels with 17 points, including
13 in the second half. The 6-foot All
America candidate also pulled down
a game-high 12 rebounds, helping
UNC to a 42-24 advantage in that
Low-scoring Darlene Cannon
bucked all previous trends with a
season-high 14 points, including four
big free throws down the stretch, and
backcourtmate Liza Donnell
chipped in with 12.
"Duke is an excellent team, they
have tremendous talent and they
executed well. But I think our
quickness paid off for us in the end,"
said first-year UNC coach Sylvia
That quickness was most obvious
on the defensive end, where the Tar
Heels forced 22 Duke turnovers.

UNC effectively took All-America

Tax reforms bring money to UNC

Reagan's tax reform act may

to show they had made progress

defense as a factor, but also submit

was very key," she said. "Other than
some big turnovers, we executed our

just completely outplayed our bench.
They wore us down as the game went

Watts had seven points off the

But what has Morris worried
is that under the act, portions of
scholarships and other financial
aid must be included in a student's
gross income and may be taxable,

Although black students com

enrolled in North Carolina's public
schools in the 1984-85 school term,
they made up only 13 percent of the
state's high school graduates, accord

"Throughout the nation, there has
been a tremendous drop in the
number of black high school grad
uates," said Harold Wallace, vice
chancellor of University affairs. "We
have at least kept the numbers up
to an acceptable level."
Wallace said he doesn't see the
lack of minority students as a
permanent condition. But negative
signals about financial aid have been
sent to black students in North
Carolina, he said, and have contrib
uted to the drop in applicants.
