Maryland a talented Sophomore hit 19 for his Side. Duke used a zone defense most of the afternoon to keep the scoring Down. By controlling the Tempo the Blue devils also Cut Down on turnovers. They committed just five in the game. In Short practically everything Duke had planned before the game was run to near perfection. The wily criticism Waters could find was the missed free throws near the end when Duke was in a Bonus situation. A that was our Only he noted. A against an explosive team like Maryland missing the open end of a one and one can be Waters did t want to go into specifics about the Duke game plan on the reasoning that the teams May meet again in the tournament. He did say that the number one priority was to control the Tempo and number two to isolate a couple of the Maryland players. He credited his guards with keeping Tom Mcmillen from getting operating room near the Basket once he got the Ball. Mcmillen had 16 Points but made just six Field goals in 17 attempts. Once Duke got a six Point Lead in the second half it spread its offence to bring Maryland out and offer a better Chance at going to the Basket one on one. Maryland hit a cold spell for several minutes during which sub Waters on 4-c he flies through the air with the greatest of ease terms Howard White performs while Aion Shaw cancels the act a a Reph it Panther finale today by Paul Shinn associate sports editor g ree is Boron neither High Point College nor the Carolina cougars has enjoyed the greatest amount of Success this season but the pair will play on the same floor this afternoon in a doubleheader at the coliseum. For the panthers it will be the wrap up of the regular season in the Carolinas conference against Guilford. That game will begin at i of clock. The cougars will play Denver in the second game around 3 of clock. High Point has now lost its Chance at a split in conference games but with an upset could finish the season at .500. It would take an upset of fair proportions based on the first game Between the two teams. In that one Guilford smashed the panthers 108-79. Since then Guilford has slapped a hold on fourth place in the standings with an 8-8 record including a 79-83 Triumph Over second place Elon on thursday night. On that same night High Point played Flat and lost to new in of t 4 7-7 is 4 2-3 to 4 2-2 to 04 la 7 4-5 la 3 5 5 la 0 04 0 Berr it a 64-63 the panthers Are 5-8 and in seventh place. A difference Between this game and the first one besides being played in the Middle of the Day instead of at night is that the quakers will be without m. L. Carr. Carr had 18 Points against the panthers in the earlier Victory but later suffered an injury and is supposed to be out for the season. Jerry Crocker scored 24 Points against Elon and has been the big gun for Guilford coach Jackie Jensen Ken Mckinney son of Cougar coach Bones Mckinney has come into his own and May also be a Factor. High Point coach j. D. Barnett gave no indication that he would have his club hold the Ball As it did against Lenoir Rhyne awhile Back despite the fact that Guilford has been the Only team to score More than too Points against High Point this season. But a lot of plans could have been changed Between thursdays loss and this afternoon s game. The panthers will probably do anything they consider reasonable to wind up the season on an up note. It May take this game to decide the final position in the standings for High Point and Pfeiffer which is 6-9. Not including last night s game with presbyterian. The Carolina conference tournament will be held this thursday through saturday at Elon College. Pc will probably wind up playing either Elon or Catawba in the first round.

One was that it was the 1.000th Victory in unc basketball history. That May be of most importance Only to those who have been following the sport since unc played its first game Back in 1911. More important to this years fan. Though was the fact that the 91-78 Triumph moved the tar heels Back into first place in the Atlantic coast conference standing with an 8-2 record and dropped Virginia to second place at 8-3. Also it gave the tar heels two victories Over the Cavaliers this year. That Means that should the two teams still wind up in a tie for first place when the season ends next week Carolina would get the first round Bye in the acc tournament because it won both regular season games against Virginia. And despite a couple of runs at the tar heels by the virginians. Unc coach Dean Smith had his club ready to display its Best performance before a regional television audience. Virginia had its incentive too. Until last night the Cavaliers were the Only team to remain undefeated against acc Competition on the Road. But it was Carolina night. A devastating inside game manned by Superior Talent put the Home club off and literally running from the Start and it never let up. Despite turning in some ragged play in the opening moments of the second half that allowed Virginia to Cut a 10-Point halftime deficit to six on a couple of occasions. Carolina went up by As much As 16 Points Midway through the second half but Virginia did not fold against t in pressure and defense. It came Down to the fact that the tar heels were just too Quick and too muscular with Mcadoo and Dennis a Wuycik leaving bruises on defenders on their Way to the Basket. The tar heels shot 68 per cent from the floor in the first half and that was More than enough to give them a base to build on Down the stretch. The Victory put unc 20-3 for the season against 20-4 for the Cavaliers. It also put unc in a position to raise its National ranking above the number five spot it occupied after losing at Maryland. Virginia spread the action most of the game putting 6-10 Scott Mccandlish outside to draw Mcadoo out from under the Basket. That worked but it also took away Virginia a Best rebounded on missed shots. The anal minutes took on the atmosphere of a free for All with Virginia throwing up Long shots and Carolina rebounding. The tar heels called on their four Corner offence in the last 60 seconds but Only fouls slowed the action. Virginia which relies so state belts ecu Raleigh. No. Of North Carolina state came Back after an unimpressive first half in which it shot Only 28 per cent to score 57 Points in the second half for a 92-57 decision Over East Carolina in a basketball game saturday night. East Carolina could not capitalize on the Wolf pack a cold shooting and trailed 35-25 at intermission. Coach Norman Sloan of state substituted freely during the game and began making wholesale substitutions with a Little Over five minutes left. States Joe Cafferky led the scorers with 23 Points. The Wolf pack a 7-Fbot-4 Center Tommy Burleson was held to Only seven Points but led All Rebo unders with 16. Ecu Scenter Al Faber led his teams scoring with 15 Points while Jerome Owens had 13 and Jim Fraley la. High Point i i Enterprise Section c sun., feb. 27, 1972 heavily on guard Barry Park Hill did so once More and the Junior who has turned Down professional offers did his Hest. His steadying influence on the Cavaliers kept the game from being a runaway. His play was appreciated to the Point that when he fouled out with 29 second to go he got an ovation from the Carolina fans. A minute earlier Virginia lost Mccandlish via the foul route. He finished with 19 Points to Lead the Cavaliers. Carolina was paced by Mcadoo with 24 pouts and Wuycik with 20. There was help from the outside with George Kart Chipping in 18. He hit to of 12 from the free throw line. Karl had three personals at the half b u t managed to go through the rest of the game with the help of frequent substituting by Smith without getting another foul. Carolina finished with a 61 per cent shooting figure from the floor which did Little to damage their National leadership in that category by contrast Virginia managed 39 5 from the floor primarily because the outside shooting was off. Smith said after the game. A it was a very big win for us and gives us the temporary Lead at least in a very tight acc race. It was also the schools 1000th win and that is a great Honor. We just happened to be Here at the right time to achieve it. It is the result of a lot of Fine players and coaches in the past. There Are Only six schools in America with 1000 wins so that certainly Speaks Well for the great basketball tradition at Carolina. A we got a Good Early Lead and seemed to relax. Virginia played with a lot of poise. Virginia made Only la turnovers to 18 for the tar heels a Karl did a Good Job against the Virginia press. Virginia handled our press Well. Wuycik did a tremendous Job on the boards and Mcadoo shot Virginia coach Bill Gibson said that the Cavalier defense in the first half put his team in trouble. He said Virginia did not Force enough turnovers. A Mcadoo Hurt us under our Basket by rejecting All those shots. He intimidated us. I can t take anything away from Carolina. They played a great game. A i thought Parkhill played exceptionally Well. No one can press us and i think this game proves this.
