Tim Moore, Student Congress
speaker and a task force member, threat

Since the audit board serves "at the

native nicknamed "The Durham Bull"

played the final 7:30 with four fouls and
brought Wake Forest to within three

The sellout crowd of 14,480 wit

players performing at peak levels.
"You saw two great forwards on the
floor tonight in Rogers and Lynch,"
said UNC head coach Dean Smith.
"Rodney reminds me a little bit of (New

though I think Rodney's a little better."
Wake head coach Dave Odom said
the battle royale was probably won by
