Final 8
Continued from Page 1
Reid scored 26 points, but
converted on only 2-7 from the free
throw line. Jeff Lebo added 19,
including 5 three-pointers in the
losing effort.
The game started out as a battle
of the bombers, as Lebo hit three 3-
pointers, and Glen Rice two, within
the first minute and a half of play.
Rice led Michigan with 18 points in

the first half on 7-10 shooting,
while Carolina was led by Lebo's 15
points and Reid's 12.
Michigan players worked hard to
make sure that Rice was wide open
to shoot the three. "Our guys did a
great job of screening to get me
open," Rice said.
Demetrius Calip saw some early
playing time, as Robinson picked up
his second foul nearly three minutes
into the game.
North Carolina went on a 16-6
run, as Lebo hit three 3-pointers, to

take a 26-18 lead with 12:48 left in
the first period. Rice scored 15 of
Michigan's first 21 points.
A 9-2 run, spanning three min-
utes, six seconds, capped by a
Higgins layup pulled the Wolverines
to within one, 28-27, at the 10:36
mark of the first half.
After the teams traded baskets, the
Tar Heels took off on an 11-5 run,
as Michigan missed 4-5 shots and
stopped swinging the ball around to
the open man.
The Wolverines then outscored

their opponents 14-4 for the rest of
the half, as a Rice dunk sent
Michigan to the locker room leading
for the sixth time in the half, 50-47.
Both teams came out of the
locker room very cold, as Michigan
hit only 3 of its first 10 shots while
the Tar Heels connected on four of
their first 9, but had trouble running
their offense.
Carolina led 59-56 before Rice
and Robinson connected on back-to-
back three-pointers to put Michigan
up 62-61 with 13:48 left to play.

Cinderella Cavs are next foe
BY STEVE BLONDER
SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Virginia Cavaliers, a surprise team in this
year's NCAA tournament, hope their Cinderella Story will play well in
Seattle. But first, they must get past a Michigan team with similar
objectives.
The Cavaliers, the No. 5 seed in the Southeast, upset top-ranked Ok-
lahoma, 86-80, to earn their first meeting with Michigan since 1980 when
Virginia won 79-68.
Virginia (22-10) is led by senior guard Richard Morgan, who averages
20.4 points per game and is shooting 42 percent from the floor.
Forward Bryant Stiph, this year's ACC Rookie-of-the-Year, is second on
the team in scoring (15.4) re-bounding (6.6) and field goal per-centage
(54.9). In Virginia's last eight games, Stiph is shooting 60 percent from the
field, 81.5 percent from the free-throw line and is ave-raging 20.1 points per
game.
John Crotty starts with Morgan in the backcourt, while Brent Dabbs and
Matt Blundin round out the starting lineup.
To get to the great eight, Virginia defeated Providence in the first round
and Middle Tennessee State in the second round.
Michigan has split its two con-tests against Virginia, winning 66-52 in
1952 and the 1980 loss in the third round of the NIT tournament.

with 2:45 left to play. They never
looked back.
"We just got whipped tonight,"
Oklahoma coach Billy Tubbs said.
"Virginia made all the right plays at
the right times."
Indeed, Virginia dominated the
boards, outrebounding Oklahoma 38-
26. Center Brent Dabbs led the way
with a career high 14.
"It was a very physical game,"
Oklahoma center Stacey King said.
"They just harassed me from both
sides."
ACC Rookie-of-the-Year Bryant
Stiph led Virginia with 28 points,
one below his career high. Guard
Richard Morgan chipped in with 25.
Oklahoma's two leading scorers,
King and guard Mookie Blaylock,
were held to a combined 27 points.
They averaged 53 during the regular
season.
Blaylock had a particularly tough
game, getting poked in the eye late
in the first half and finishing with
just five points.
"It took him out of the game,"
Tubbs said. "His lids swelled
together and he couldn't see. That
really hurt us."

DENVER, Co. (AP) - Andrew
Gaze accounted for four of Seton
Hall's eight 3-point baskets, and the
Pirates upended Indiana, 78-65,
Thursday night in NCAA tourn-
ament West Regional play.
Seton Hall, 29-6, advances to the
regional final Saturday against the
winner of the Arizona-Nevada-Las
Vegas game.
The Pirates' superior rebounding
and inside offense proved to be the
difference against an Indiana team
that had to be content with shooting
from the perimeter most of the
night.
Hoosier guard Jay Edwards had 16
of his 18 points in the second half,
helping rally Indiana from a 12-point
deficit early in the second half to

The Great Eight
within 54-51 with 8:16 left.
But Indiana could get no closer.
Seton Hall guard John Morton, who
wound up as the Pirates' leading
scorer with 17 points, hit six free
throws down the stretch. After Ed-
wards had cut the deficit to 60-56 on
two free throws, Seton Hall's Gerald
Greene countered with two free
throws and Ramon Ramos hit a
turnaround inside for a 64-56
advantage.
