High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - February 10, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Carolina state win in North South doubleheader tar heels trounce jackets by Paul Shinn associate sports editor Charlotte More than two minutes went by before a Point was made in the Carolina Georgia tech game saturday night. If you think that indicated a stalling tactic on the part of tech you re wrong. As it turned out tech was wrong too. Walter Davis started the tar heels on a 12-Point Binge that set the Pace for a 112-70 Carolina Victory in the wrap up of North South doubleheader. By the time five minutes had passed in the contest everybody in the tar Heel starting lineup had scored and Only a Basket by yellow jacket Harry Allen stopped inc from running up a 20-0 Lead. It was an exhibition in More ways than one for Carolina ranked fourth in the country. Tech should never have been on the same floor with the tar heels. Once the first flurry was Over it was a matter of time before Carolina coach Dean Smith reached into his deep Bench to give the players who sit in the shadows some Competition. Statistics freaks can get an idea about How bad tech is when the leading yellow jacket percentage shooter is 16 Points below tech s opponents average. The Atlanta visitors were hitting just about a third of their attempts in the first half while Carolina was at its usual 50-plus to move to a 20pomt intermission Lead. Attention then turned to a free throw Streak the tar heels had going with a 19-of-19 in the first half and to tech coach Dwane Morrison. The free throw Streak was stopped at 23 when Darrell Elston missed one Midway through the final period and Morrison was stopped by referee Chuck Hartman on a technical foul with a minute left in the first half. Morrison Wasny to really mad at the time. It was More a question of being wrapped up in the game and forgetting his court Side manners. He was hit while walking Down the sidelines with a drink in his hand. When he Wasny to drinking the first year coach was puffing cigarettes until he smelled his skin burning. It All went for naught As Carolina upped its record to 17-2 Georgia tech dropped to 4-15 and is still on a draught that started several years ago. The sellout crowd of 11,666 began leaving in huge blocks in the second half to get an Early Start on the parties that follow such occasions. Four Carolina players were in double figures with Elston leading with 20. Followed by Bobby Jones with 18 and Walter Davit with 16. Techs Only decent scoring came from Allen with 15 Points. The tar heels actually shot better in the second half with the subs in and wound up with a 60 9 night. Smith used 17 players in the Romp for senior Jones it was his last game in the coliseum. He lost once Here As a freshman after graduating from Charlotte South High school. He went out in style with six of seven from the floor and six of six at the line.

These Guys have never bogged Down not even against teams like n c. State and Maryland. Hopefully we can keep it together a you saw two halves of basketball a Deacon coach Carl Tacy offered a a and the second was certainly very different from the first. Virginia played Well in the second half but i think it was More our mistakes that made the difference than anything they did. We made an awful lot of bad mistakes that should never have been the deacons shot 64.5 per cent in the first half placed nine players in the scoring column out rebounded Virginia 18-13, and hit on 12 of 15 free throws to nearly Railroad the cars Back to Charlottesville. But then Virginia caught its breath and a few words from Gibson. A you could say i was a Little upset at halftime a Gibson grinned a but basically what i told them was to Start executing better offensively and to get out there and play some defense. Our defense had t been satisfactory at in the second half Virginia shot 51 4 per cent from the Field to 27.0 for the Deacon Sammy Johnson inks 49er pact hit the boards much better and Sank la of 16 free throw attempts.

C. State s Monte Towe is going to get so frustrated at the mighty mites moves and counter moves he will try to level Towe to a height even Shorter than his 5-6. \ until that time comes however Towe will keep on doing the things he does so Well in the land of the giants and state will Likely remain the no. 2 nationally ranked team. Towe tied together another state Victory saturday night leading the Wolf pack to a 111-91 decision Over Furman in the opening game of the North South doubleheader. The win raises state to 18-1 on the season while Furman drops to 14-7. Despite the final margin it Wasny tone of state s picture Book efforts and except for some disorganized work by the out manned paladins and Towe the game could have been closer. State led by la at the half but shortly before then had been up by five at 45-40. Furman did t melt for Good until the final minutes although state did hold a double figure Lead throughout the second half. An example of towers abandon came late in the second half when he was streaking Down the floor for what would have been an uncontested Layup. Whether he knew for sure he tossed the Ball Back Over his head to trailer David Thompson who had to put the Ball in the Basket or carry it out of Bounds when he was t firing Outfield bullets to fast breaking teammates Towe was harassing the Furman offence and defense with his Pesky behaviour. He hit five of seven shots in the first half to go with the to of 14 he had for Friday night s game. He went out with five minutes left with la assists and 17 Points.

State had a hot shoot my first half 58.5 per cent which was considerably stronger than Furman. In the other statistics the paladins held their own. A a i thought we played Well at times and i think we re getting better All the allowed state coach Norm Sloan a we May be gambling More on defense and we re going More with our big lineup from now on a the big lineup according to Sloan will move Thompson to the backcourt and add Phil Spence to the duo of Tommy Burleson and Tim Stoddard Spence got in a lot of time scored 14 Points and got seven rebounds Clyde Mayes once again started in front of 7-footer Fessor Leonard and was again the top gun for Furman. He finished with 25 Points and a game High 19 rebounds. Furman out rebounded state and had one fewer turnovers indicating that either the paladins had Learned something from the night before or that state was having too much fun in the weekend doubleheader. For Furman coach Joe Williams it was another learning experience for sure. A tonight we were More relaxed a he said. A and our played showed. The reason we play in these things is to try to see Wolf pack on 5c Richmond a.
