N.C. Bul this year Ihe tournament was moved lo the Capital Center in Landover, Md. and Maryland still came up short. And Ihis time it wasn't even a North Carolina team that had the honor of eliminating the Terps. Maryland, which has finished in (he nation's lop 10seven times in the last 12 years arid was ranked No. 8 this year, fell to unheralded Virginia Friday nighl, 73-65, to miss out on a tournament showdown wilh regular season champ and No. 3-ranked North Carolina. The Tar Heels had an easy lime in Ihe first game of the night when they pasted Clemson, 82-74, capitalizing on the foul trouble of seven- foot center Wayne "Tree" Kollins to run up an 18-poinl lead early in ihe second half. North Carolina will meet Virginia for the championship today, Wally Walker scored 27 points and Virginia, which finished 4-8 in the ACC and 15-11 overall this year, also capitalized on Maryland foul trouble to put the game away. The Terps lost All-American guard John'Lucas and Mo Howard to fouls and eventually were outscored by Virginia from Ihe foul line. 23-7. "They all slunk tonight," Maryland Coach Lefty Driesell said of his (earn. "Boston. Lucas, Sheppard ... and I stunk as a coach. I went wilh the little guys when we got behind because I wanted to press. When we caught up, 1 guess I should have come oul of thai. I made a mistake." The Tar Heels are guaranteed a berth in the NCAA playoffs, but Virginia must win Ihe tournament today lo get a bid in the NCAA. Should Virginia lose, Maryland would probably gel Ihe ACC's other NCAA berth. Wiillcr Davis scored 17 points and Phil Ford bit 16, including 14 in the first half, lo pace the Norlh Carolina attack in Ihe mauling of Clemson. In other games, lath-ranked Cincinnati dumped Georgia Tech, 71-60, and Memphis Slate upset 17lh-ranked Louisville. 87-76, to gain Ihe finals of the Melro-6 Conference lourney. Given a big lift by 6-9 sophomore John Gunn, Memphis steadily pulled away from Louisville to take a 43-35 lead at (he half and increased lhat margin to 78-42 for ils biggest spread. Gunn had 18 points and 10 rebounds. Utah squanders NCAA chance SALT LAKE CITY (DPI) - Utah blew a 16- point second half lead and their chance for the final berlh in the NCAA playoffs as Wyoming slipped past !be Utes 64-61 in a Western Athletic Conference game Friday night. The NCAA had said if Utah won ils final Iwo WAC games il would be considered along with Kansas Stale for the lasl spol in the tournament. Freshman forward Tony Barnelt and sophomore guard Jetty Rice led the Cowboys' second half comeback which saw Wyoming outscore Ulan 17-4 after the Ules had a 16- poinl lead midway through Ihe second half Itice tied the score at GO-60 on a lay-in after a steal wilh 1:06 to play. Utah wenl up by one on a [oul shot by Gregg Deanc bul Barnelt put Ihe Cowboys in Ihe lead for good on a short in- Ihe-lane jumper followed by Rice's jumper for a (hrw-point Wyoming lead Dexter Reed added 25 points for Memphis Stale. In the Southwest Conference tournament, Texas Tech downed Arkansas, 70-63, behind Rick Bullock's 44 points and will meet Texas AM tonight for Ihe right to represent the conference in the NCAA playoffs. In the ECAC Southern Division playoff, Georgetown smothered Villanova, 72-59, and George Washington nipped West Virginia, 9997. In the Ohio Valley Conference (ournament, Western Kentucky clipped Morehead Slate, CS-60. in Ihe tille game and will meet No. 2- ranked Marquette in the opening round of Ihe NCAA tournament next Saturday. Marquclle upped ils record to 24-1 wilh a 7449 humiliation of Xavier, oulscoring Ihe helpless Musketeers, 22-3, in Ihe final eight minutes. Also, Princeton beat Cornell, 72-58, Yale tripped Harvard, 63-62, Pcnn clipped Columbia, 97-74, Biown topped Darlmouth, 71-69. and Weber State dumped Northern Arizona. 53-58. Zarley leads golf tourney ORLANDO, Fla. IUPI) - Kermit Zarley is enjoying his golf swing these days more than before. It's producing good scores--and no pain. Zarley, who had to have an operation last October lo correct a swollen disc that had given him a pain in the neck for six years, is 11-under par after two rounds in the Cilrus Open and wenl into today's play wilh a two- slroke lead. "It goes without saying lhat my game is going good," said Zarley after putting together rounds of 67-66. "I've been working pretty hard on my golf, which i'm able to do now." Zarley gave his competitors a pain Friday when he reeled off five birdies in a six-hole span to surge from two strokes behind into the lead of this $200,000 lournamenl. He had to scramble the final few holes to protect his lead. A brief rainstorm came up just after he putted oul on his 15lh hole and he said the 20-minufe play suspension "made me lose my concentration." "We'd been out there quile awhile. I began to get tired and started (o scramble," he said. No one took advantage of his lapse. Gay Brewer and .Mark Hayes, tied for second al 9 under par, both finished hours ahead of Zarley. Fourth-place John Mahaffey, Ihree strokes back, also finished early. The only late finishers, who made any sort of a run at Zarley, were Bob Murphy and Rick Acton and both wound up at 7-under 137 along wilh (our rookie Ed Sabo and Pal Fitzsimons. Exceptional playing conditions meant the cut for (he final two rounds was a( even-par 144. A lotal of 82 from a starling field of 156 did al least that well. However, defending champion Lee Trevino (1471 and Arnold Palmer (146) who lives here part of the year didn't make il. Ben Crenshaw. the tour's current money leader, is eighl strokes off (he pace and J.C. Snead who battled Nicklaus for Ihe TPC crown (his past week, is five back. Gary Player barely gol under the wire, thanks to a Friday G9 for 144. Los Angeles' winner Hale Irwin shot a 66-140. Mike Hill, tied wilh Hayes for Ihe first-round lead after a Kon Thursday, skied lo a 73-138 where he was joined by Snead. Don January and Larry Zie- glcr. another 66 shooter Friday.
