think a game with your faculty
would create a lot of interest."

Bucks Played Well,
Laney Loss Tough
By Sherry Matthews
The Hoke High Bucks went out with a fight even though they
were eliminated by Wilmington Laney in the first round of the state
4-A playoff games by a score of 73-62.
"We played hard, but we got behind early and that changed what
we planned to do," Hoke High Coach Ron Parsons said.
Once the Bucks got behind, that is where they stayed although
they fought hard to close the margin.
The closest Hoke High came was the eight point halftime margin.
"We never were allowed to play in the zone, the way we had plan
ned and that did not help us any," Coach Parsons said.
Even with the loss, Coach Parsons- was very proud of his team
"1 am very happy with our overall season, and we can honestly
say we accomplished our two main goals, winning the conference ti
tle and going to the playoffs," Parsons said.
Looking ahead to next season, Parson feels pretty confident.
Seven players from this year's squad will be returning next
season, and Parsons believes he'll have another good feam to work
Greg Hollingsworth, who is a senior at Hoke High, has been
looked over by several colleges for a possible scholorship, but he
has made no committment yet, Parsons said.
Chowan, Mt. Olive, Pembroke and Atlantic Christian College all
have shown interests in Hollingsworth. The offers probably will
continue to come in because the deadline isn't until April 15, Par
Freddy McLean, another senior on the team, will more than like
ly attend Southeastern College, Parsons said.
Scorers for the Bucks final game were: Hollingsworth 28,
McLauren 6, McRae 5, Easterling 8, McLean 7, McDuffie, Peguese
2, Galbreath 2, Pickett 2.

Former Hoke County standout
Sharon McMillan became only the
second 1 ,000-point scorer in UNC
Wilmington women's basketball
history during the recently con
cluded 1982-83 season.
McMillan, a swing player who
plays both guard and forward for
the Lady Seahawks, scored her
1,000th point on February 23rd in
a 74-67 loss to East Carolina here.
After missing the first seven
games of the 82-83 season, for
academic reasons, the 5'8 junior
started slowly in early January but
came on to hit double figures in
nine of UNCW's last 11 games.
She netted a season-high of 29
points in a 101-79 win over St.
Augustine's in Mid-February.
The quick-handed McMillan
was particularly effective in the
year's final four outings, averaging
20 points, five assists and five
steals per game during that stretch.
"Sharon is a superb all-around
athlete, but even she had some dif
ficulty after missing the preseason
and first few games," UNCW
coach Marilyn Christoph says.
"But once she got it going, she was
