But this band of Tar Heels from North Carolina ?s just the reverse—lightning quick. North Carolina, the nation's second- ranked college basketball team, used their fast break to advantage in a 101-76 blitz of Georgia Tech Tuesday night. While North Carolina won as expected, a couple of teams in the lower half of the national rankings—No. 17 Northwestern and No. 19 Cincinnati—were upset victims. Marquette, No. 15 and the only other nationally-ranked team in action—romped over Wisconsin-Milwaukee 118-60 Mar quette's home court. The Tar Heels, who have lost only once in 13 outings this season, wasted no time blazing past Georgia Tech. North Carolina built a 56-33 halftime margin to a lead of as many as 42 points. Olympic standout Charlie Scott led the attack at Atlanta, Ga. with 30 points for North Carolina, while Bill Bunting had 22. Rich Yunkus topped Tech with 23 points in a game marked by a total of 42 personal fouls. Marquette's 118 points against Wisconsin-Milwaukee set a school record in the cross-town game. The previous Marquette high had been 113 against Ripon in 1954. Dean Meminger had 31 points and George Thompson 20 in Marquette's 10th consecutive victory. Cecil Morries led the losers with 15. j Drake, led by Willie McCarter, improved its 30-26 halftime lead to 55-41 eight minutes deep into last half and held on' from there in handing Cincin-1 nati its first home court loss in 19 games. McCarter hit 10 of his 19 points in the decisive burst. Don Ogletree led Cincinnati with 22. Indiana, down 8-1 in the early going at Bloomington, Ind., reeled off 14 consecutive points against favored Northwestern and took it from there for its first Big Ten victory in four starts.
