Ga. Tech, 92-55,
to move to No.l
By SCOTT FOWLER
If Georgia Tech had been a dog, it would have been
shot for mercy's sake early in the second half. As it
was, the Yellow Jackets had to blindly poke along
Saturday night in the Smith Center, as UNC played
without point guard Kenny Smith and still won by 37
Domination is too mild a word for what happened,
when North Carolina assured itself a No. 1 ranking in
every poll from the AP to the Henderson Street Bar
by ravaging the Yellow Jackets, 92-55. The win, UNC's
1 5th in a row, raised the Tar Heels' slate to 6-0 in the
conference and 17-1 overall. Tech fell to 1-4 and 9-7.
Try "massacre" as a description of Saturday's
mismatch. The Tech team won't only have to go back
to the drawing board after this loss, it should have to
listen to Bobby Cremins' fingernails being slowly scraped
down it. "1 was embarrassed for the league, for Georgia
Tech and for my friends," Cremins said. "You guys know
basketball. We were blown out."
Need more evidence? Tech forward Duane Ferrell,
the ACC's leading scorer, was held to two points on
l-of-8 shooting. UNC scored on 12 straight possessions
in the second half. J.R. Reid hit 6-of-7 shots to up his
shooting percentage to 90 percent (27 of 30) over the
last three games. The Tar Heels more than doubled
Georgia Tech's rebound total 34-16 forced 16
turnovers in the first half alone, and shot 64.5 percent
for the game.
Remember, this is the same Georgia Tech team that
was ranked No. 6 preseason in the AP poll. Dean Smith,
whose normal opening quote at postgame press
conferences is "I'd like to give (fill in the team) a lot
of credit for a game well-played," this time smiled and
said: "This is a tremendous victory of unbelievable
That is a rare quote from one of the masters of
understatement. But the game was tremendous, from
the Tar Heels' point of view. Five players scored in
double figures, with substitute point guard Jeff Lebo
and Reid leading the way with 16 points each. Dave
Popson hit for 15, a number on an outside shot he
no longer hesitates to take, and Joe Wolf and Scott
Williams added 10.
But the scoring for the Tar Heels wasn't as much
the key as a pressing, man-to-man defense that
completely rattled Tech. "We jumped them early,"

Clark makes a bid
for RHA president
By JO FLEISCHER
Kelly Clark, a junior journalism
major from Asheboro, has
announced his candidacy for Resi
dence Hall Association president.
If elected, Clark would concen
trate on issues that have been
addressed in the past, but have not
reached a conclusion agreeable to
students, he said. "I'd like to stick
to those things that are already there,
instead of coming up with six or
seven new programs. I'd like to see
what we can get done," he said.
A "students' needs assessment
study," which is being compiled by
RHA, indicates that most students
don't want their rent money spent
on special living and learning pro
grams like French and Spanish suites
in Carmichael Residence Hall.

1983 by students angry at the

said. Student Government chose the

On N.C. towns, Kuralt said: "At
the head of Buffalo Creek, there is
a little place called Aho. Years ago,
some of the men who lived there
gathered around a stove trying to
decide what to call the place. And
they couldn't agree. But they
couldn't stay all night either.
. "So after considering dozens of
names of which one or another of
them raised an objection, they
decided the next thing out of anyb

of their community. They sat there
a while in silence, until Mr. B.B.

After 18 years of legal discussion
and planning, the Orange Water and
Sewer Authority officially broke
ground for construction of Cane
Creek Reservoir Saturday the first
step in what OWASA officials call
a milestone in water supply devel

"I think everybody will breathe a
collective sigh of relief when Cane
Creek is completed, because the
community has been plagued with
water shortage problems for so
long," OWASA Chairman Edward

Completion of the project is
scheduled for June 1989.

According to Williams, Student
Congress spent more this past
semester than in recent years.
Because the budget operates on a
deficit, Student Congress decided to
withdraw the money from the credit
union account to ensure that the
funds would be available for the fees
that have had to pay lately.
