A last year is last year a both coaches echoed. A this is a whole new Deal a Sloan stressed. A if anything last year might provide More incentive for Maryland but that does t mean any less incentive for states defense in crushing Clemson 96-68 saturday afternoon had to give Driesell cause for concern. The Wolf pack hammered out 38 turnovers from the tigers an almost unheard of figure in acc circles. But Sloan was t unimpressed with the Terrapin defense either. A the Maryland defense is awfully Good a he cautioned. A you can look Over their scores and see that. Its no coincidence they be held people like Urcla to 65 Points or players like Tony Byers Wake Forest to 14 Points. Based on National ranking and comparative scores with Urcla the Wolf pack might even go into the game a slight underdog despite past Success Over the terrapins and the Home court advantage. A we wont know until sunday How our game with Clemson will affect us a Sloan said. A a in a worried because it was such a physical game and the two contests Are so close together. I can to honestly see us having a letdown though. The game is going to be televised nationally and both teams Are highly ranked. I done to think Well have any trouble getting up. Clemson coach tates Locke whose team has played and been soundly Defeated by both teams this week climbed to a Neutral position and asked to stay out of the controversy Over which team is Best. A i can to answer that for two reasons a he grinned. A live got to play Mem both Locke turning serious pointed out that the tigers games with the terms and the Wolf pack were very different in nature. A we played horribly at Maryland and just took ourselves out of it he explained. A against state we played hard but Norm put on their press and knocked us out of it Early. The circumstances were different Here one thing for sure Locke does t expect to see either team blown out by the other. He s already seen enough of that.

So-9 Gus Gerard out jumps the Field Virginia Forward takes rebound Over 3 tar heels map wire photo heels find clutch drive Over Virginia special to the Enterprise University Hall Charlottesville a. A the missing part of Carolinas basketball machine of 1973 a the clutch a is working beautifully in the new Model. It surfaced again Here saturday afternoon just As the tar heels were taking the Gas. And it produced Carolinas second acc Road win in four Days 85-75 Over Dan Gerard and Virginia in that order. The fact that last years 25-8 heels were Only 8-8 in games decided by less than ten Points in t widely known a neither is their 4-5 record on league opponents Home courts since december 1971. This year those figures Are 3-1 and 2-0, and although the eventual 12 Point margin saturday indicates a decisive win Carolina was Only up 72-69 with 1.56 left. Then after Walter Davis hit two free throws Darrell Elston pranced right through the spread out Cavaliers for a Layup and Carolina slammed the door for Good. It negated Gerard a Superb 30-Point, ten rebound and 13-for-21 performance a show that Dean Smith rated among the Best against unc in the last decade. A you Don t see anybody even David Thompson go behind his Back and pull up to hit a 20-footer on Bobby Jones a said Smith. A it looked like something Billy Cunningham might do. Actually we knew Virginia would come Back on us they always do in Charlottesville. We had to rely on the four Corners at the end which is like the running game in football when you have a after a few three Yard losses Davis and Elston and later Mitch Kupchak produced the figurative touchdown. A we feel like its our game when we get into a four Corners situation a said Ray mite who helped after Roy Harrison fouled out. Even if we make turnovers we know Well play Good defense on the other end. At halftime after wed gotten the big Lead coach Smith said we ought to Surprise them and keep them out of the Ball game for Good but we . They played very both teams exceeded 52 per cent accuracy from the Field neither committed Over 20 turnovers and even the 41 fouls seemed reasonable. It was a worthy prelude for today a video Bonanza. But Virginia now 2-1 in the league and 5-5 Overall needs More than a two Man show to succeed.
