The Salina Journal Sunday, January 19,1986 Page 16 Heels prevail in ACC showdown North Carolina's Steve Hale (left) has the ball knocked out of his hands by Duke's Mark Alarie. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Steve Hale came in through the back door to christen North Carolina's new $33.8 million Dean E. Smith Student Activities Center. Hale, a 64 senior, scored a career- high 28 points, and 6-11% center Brad Daughtery had another 23 to lead top- ranked North Carolina to a 95-92 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over No. 3 Duke before a capacity crowd of 21,444 at the new arena, named for the Tar Heels' coach. Hale started the second half with a steal and a layup, then shook loose for three back-door layups as the unbeaten Tar Heels broke the game open with a 16-5 after intermission. The run gave North Carolina a 64-48 margin, its biggest lead of the game. During an ensuing timeout, the North Carolina cheerleaders ran across the court, carrying a streamer which said, "Dean's Dome — The Tradition Continues." The Tar Heels had posted a 169-20 record in 20% seasons at their old home, Carmichael Auditorium. But this opener was not easy. Several times, Duke rallied in the waning minutes, and the previously undefeated Blue Devils scored the game's final seven points to cut the final margin to three. In explaining the easy layups, Hale said, "They were overplaying us. ... You have to give a good fake and go." Smith said he talked about the play with his team at halftime, "and we thought we could get those back-door layups." He said "there was no particular reason" that Hale was the beneficiary of the play. "It's part of the offense, and whoever is in that position can get them," the Tar Heels coach said. Hale said he and his teammates tried not to get caught up in the hype over the new arena and the dream matchup against Duke "because we've got too much of the season left to put all our marbles in one game.'' North Carolina raised its record to 18-0 and 4-0 in the ACC, while Duke now is 16-1 and 4-1. The Tar Heels, who must travel to Marquette for a game today, are one of only three remaining unbeatens in the nation. The other two are sixth-ranked Memphis State and No. 7 Oklahoma. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski called the game "very physical" and said, "that's where we really got hurt. Today they were just a little too big, and it seemed like on some second and third shots where we would do a good job defensively, they would still come up with the ball." Hale, who had been averaging 10.8 points a game, scored 13 points in the first half, and the Tar Heels led 4843 at intermission. North Carolina had taken the lead for good with ait." Orza said that arguments for mandatory testing were guilty of "imprecision" on three levels. On a technical level, Orza said, the most common tests are inaccurate. On a legal level, he said, mandatory testing is a subject for collective bar- gaining, not something to be imposed individually. On a level of principles, Orza said it was wrong to impose a "class-based restraint" on all individuals because of some individuals. He likened the general testing of players to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II or the blacklisting of suspected Communist sympathizers during the McCarthy Era of the early 1950's. Jerald F. Goldberg, a lawyer with Shea, Gould, described how he advises the Yankees' management about its rights under the current contract with the players. He said clubs "do have rights to examine players," but said the real question was whether that right include testing for drugs. The other member of the panel was Andrew Zweben, a lawyer and agent the third foul on Amaker. "He was out for too many minutes, and when you're playing in this type of game, you've got to have your key players, especially Tommy," Krzyzewski said. Hale hit four easy layups as the Tar Heels opened the second half with their 16-5 surge, but the Blue Devils outscored North Carolina 15-5 with Amaker contributing 18 points to reduce the lead to 69-63 with 10:55 remaining. Johnny Dawkins' dunk on an alley- oop pass from Amaker cut the margin to 74-69 with 7:50 left, but Hale hit two free throws and a driv- ing layup to help pull the Tar Heels away again at 80-69. Hale fouled out with 3:37 left. The Blue Devils cut the deficit to 87-81 with a little more than a minute left, but Jeff Lebo hit four free throws, and Kevin Madden and Kenny Smith hit two apiece to give North Carolina a 95-85 bulge with 20 seconds remaining. David Henderson scored 19 of his 24 points in the second half to top the Blue Devils, while Dawkins chipped in 22 points. Mark Alarie and Amaker each added 15. Other Tar Heels in double figures were Smith and Lebo with 11 apiece. North Carolina, which had four players 6-9 and over, outrebounded Duke 37-30, with Daugherty grabbing 11. Danny Ferry, Duke's 6-10 freshman, scored only two points on foul shots in the waning seconds, and backup center Jay Bilas had only six points as the Tar Heels dominated inside.

Guard Dwayne Washington started a Syracuse comeback with a three- point play and the Orangemen trimmed Louisville's lead to 13 at the half. Louisville used its fastbreak to extend the lead to 51-34 at the start of the second half.
