    N.C. State fouls Houston, steals Title
By Tracy M. Sumner
For The Print
“We put ourselves in a position to win by putting
them on the free throw line,” was North Carolina State
Head Basketball Coach Jim Valvano’s analysis of his
team’s shocking 54-52 upset over number one ranked
and highly favored Houston in the National Collegiate
Athletic Association championship game on March
Wolfpack was the perfect mascot for NC State in
their Cinderella march to the second national cham­
pionship in the school’s history. True to form for a
wolfpack, State attacked the soft underbelly of its op­
ponent, a free throw shooting percent of slightly over
61 percent.
The Cougars blew nine of 19 free throw chances
including two one-and-one opportunities in the
game’s final minute. That allowed NCS, an eight point
underdog coming into the game, to steal the National
title from Coach Guy Lewis and his Houston team.
Two long-range baskets by senior Dereck WhiL
tenburg tied the score at 52-all with slightly less than
two minutes remaining. After a missed free throw by
Houston guard Alvin Franklin, the Wolfpack worked
the clock down for the last shot.
With time running out, Whittenburg launched a
desperation 30-foot rainbow that turned out to be a
perfect lob pass to Lorenzo Charles, who slammed
home the winning deuce with less than two seconds
remaining. The Cougars, seemingly too stunned to
call a time out, let the clock run out to end their cham­
pionship hopes and their season at 31-3.
So much for predicted point spreads.
North Carolina State’s upset of Houston has to be
considered one of the most stunning in the history of
the NCAA tournament. The Wolfpack’s front line of
Charles, Cozelle McQueen and Thurl Baily, while very
good, would seem to be no match for Houston’s “Phi
Slamma Jamma” front line of Clyde Drexler; 7-0, 240
pound center Akeem Abdul Olajuwon, and Larry
“Mr. Mean” Micheaux.
Of the powerful fraternity, only Olajuwon, a
native of Lagos, Nigeria, was a real factor for
Houston, scoring 20 points, grabbing 18 rebounds
and playing the flyswatter defense that helped earn
him the outstanding player of the tournament award.
NC State played the very game it had to, to have
any chance for victory. But sadly, it was Houston’s in­
ability to shoot free throws, not superior play by the
Wolfpack that decided the outcome of the game.
Valvano deserved credit for a masterful job of
coaching and his players deserve credit for playing
such an intelligent, opportunistic game.
Houston, on the other hand, never got their
game going. Perhaps an emotional let down after the
Cougar’s dramatic 94-81 thrashing of Louisville Satur­
day was to blame. Perhaps over-confidence on
Houston’s part caused their poor performance.
Whatever caused the team’s flatness, it will never
change the fact that the second best team in the
NCAA final game reigns as national champion of col­
lege basketball in 1983.
Men’s Tennis
Lewis & Clark rips Cougars
After blitzing Multnomah
School of Bible 9-0, the men’s
tennis team found the going a
bit tougher at Lewis and Clark
on Monday. The 7-2 setback
dropped Clackamas’ season
record to 3-3.
“They (Lewis and Clark)
were good, but the matches we
are losing we could be
winning,” Coach Dave Buckley
The Cougars’ only two
match victories came from their
fourth and fifth men. Bob Mar­
tin bested his opponent 6-1,
1-6, and 6-4, while Steve Gor­
man needed extra games to
defeat his foe 7-5, 5-7 and 7-5.
Bob and Steve played
really well,” Buckley com­
mented. “It’s not like we’re get­
ting blown away. Concentra­
tion is thé name of the game,
and we’re just not doing it right
now,” he added.
Multnomah School of Bible
Buckley felt everyone played
fairly well. “They aren’t a bad
team. We’re being competitive
with the four-year schools, but
we’re not beating them. I just
hope the guys don’t get
discouraged; sooner or later
they will face the same caliber
at the community college
level,” Buckley warned.
The team hits the road
once again, this time heading
north to challenge Bellevue
and Green River Community
Colleges of Washington.
“These Washington schools
don’t have bad teams. We’ll get
some good competition up
there,” Buckley added. The
matches in Washington are
:heduled for April 8-9.
Norm Berney Coach of the Year
By Doug Vaughan
Of The Print
Clackamas Community
College matmen mentor
Norm Berney added another
accomplishment to his 11 year
coaching career, as he was
named the 1983 Oregon
Wrestling Coach of the Year
for two-year schools.
Berney was presented
with a plaque by the Oregon’s
Wrestling Coaches Association
for his outstanding coaching
during the Cougars’ 1983
wrestling season.
The Cougars were led by
Berney to capture fourth place
in the Regional tournament
despite having only six
wrestlers compete.
“Most likely that is why I
was chosen, because we were
the top placing team from
Oregon,” Berney said, “We
only had six wrestlers so I feel
that it (fourth place) was quite
an accomplishment.”
Berney has been honored
with a similar award from the
