CHAPEL HILL. N.C. 77 Chuck
Hayes could do nothing but place
his hands on his knees and stare
at the floor of the Dean Smith Cen.

There was 1:35 remaining on
the game clock. but the UK senior
forwards day was over.

His team was trailing by eight
points. He had just picked up his
fifth foul. He had been defeated.
and he knew it.

With the senior relegated to
the bench. North Carolina scored
seven of the game‘s final nine
points to earn a 91-78 victory and
hand the Cats their first loss of the
season Saturday in Chapel Hill.

For the second straight game.
Hayes picked up two fouls in the
opening minutes and was forced to
sit on the bench for much of the
first half.

UK head coach Tubby Smith
said the senior's excitement to
play the No. 9 Tar Heels might
have caused hitn to play too ag-
gressive early

“He was really pumped up to
play." Smith said. “And his game is
all about being physical and ag-
gressive and rebounding. I'll have
to watch the film to see if he was
fouling as much as they said he
was fouling."

Hayes finished with four
points and six rebounds both
season lows and was only on
the court for 22 minutes. It was the
first time Hayes had fouled out of
a game since his sophomore sea-

He said the early foul trouble
stayed with him for the rest of the

“It’s frustrating." Hayes said.
“You get so excited to play and
then (with the fouls) you can‘t real-
ly play the way you want to play. I
got those two quick fouls and it
took me the whole game to try to
get over that hump.

“It was so hard. I wanted to
help contribute but I just could-

INt‘ head coach Roy Williams
said shutting down Hayes was a
key to the Tar Heels victory.

“Chuck Hayes is one of my fa-
vorite players of all time."
Williams said. “It was unfortunate
for Kentucky that (‘huck got in
foul trouble. He gives them a great
deal of leadership. (‘huck is a big
time player"

The Tar Heels jumped out to
an 80 lead less than two minutes
into the game. which forced Smith
to use one of his SO-second time-
outs in an attempt to quiet the
21.750 UNC fans.

Mounting frustration
mixed with the need for a
break equaled an explosion
of emotion for the Cool Cats
this weekend, as they lost a
fight-filled series to Illinois,
84 Friday and 50 Saturday.

Illinois got open shots in
bunches around the net and.
in some cases, received the
puck a few feet from the goal
with no defenders in posi-
tion to stop them. With the
sweep, the Illini extended
the Cool Cats’ losing streak
to five losses — the Cats‘
longest streak of the season.

“We just played absolute-
ly stupid." said UK coach
Mike Sosnowski. “We work
on the game being 90 percent
mental every week, we talk

Dec. 6. 2004

about it and stress it, and we
didn't think."

Illinois (13-11-1) defeated
the Cool Cats (12-9-l) at the
Big Muddy Invitational
Tournament in St. Louis
Oct. 8 by a 2-1 margin. and
Sosnowski said the team
knew what they were getting
in to and didn't stop it from

“[The game in St. Louis]
was pretty clean overall,"
Sosnowski said. “But we
knew they liked to talk and
we walked right into it.”

Illinois opened up a 3-0
lead early Saturday. After
that, the Cool Cats missed
several excellent scoring op-
portunities and began to
look less for the puck and
more for someone to hit.

The second period ended
with 1:57 left on the clock af-



ter a huge melee that in-
volved every player on the
ice except two Cool Cats.

After UK forward Kevin
McQuade attempted to
knock a puck out of the Illi-
nois goalie's hand. three Illi-
ni players went after him.
According to team media di-
rector Matt Eichman, Mc-
Quade somehow got the bet-
ter of the battle.

“One guy had a cut on
his cheek. the goalie had a
black eye. the other guy had
a cut on his forehead, and
when I talked to McQuade in
the locker room, there was-
n't a scratch on him." Eich-
man said.

In the third period, the
game was called with 3:24 re-
maining after several more
skirmishes and unnecessary
big hits sent UK assistant

Tim Wiseman

captains Josh McConnell
and Chris Zaremski to early
showers. The referee decided
he had seen enough.

“That was completely his
decision," Sosnowski said.
“I’ve never quit a hockey
game in my life, and I'm not
about to start now."

Sosnowski suspended
starting UK defensemen Col-
in Hoss and Sean Tugel for
one game each for discipli-
nary reasons.

“The frustration snow-
balls from the players on the
ice to the coaches and play-
ers on the bench," Sosnows-
ki said. “The ref told me he
didn‘t have his best game.
but the blame lies squarely
on the bench."

McCants said. “There‘s nothing you can

rassed last year. But we just tried to put
it behind us.”

ter back-toback 3-pointers by reserves

as close as they would get.

Smith said his team's failure to close
the gap was due to a lack of leadership.

“They came down and took a couple
of ill-advised shots that weren‘t part of
our offense." he said. “The leadership we
needed at that point just wasn't there."

said. “Everybody that was patting them

After months of hype and anticipa-

back to work. Judging by the looks on
the faces of Hayes and Azubuike. they
won't forget about this.

Dead week’s rules inane,
demand prompt funeral

"Dead week"
couldn‘t be a more
appropriate name.

The last week
of classes is here.
and UK guidelines
supposedly allow
students some
breathing room so
they can begin to
prepare for finals.

If students
weren‘t so over
worked during
this last stretch.
the comparison
between the ideals
set forth by the ad
ministration and
the reality set
forth by faculty
would be laugh-

Although the
UK Student Rights
and Responsibili-

ties spells out
rules governing
this week. the

vague guidelines
are really no help
to students . they
can be easily sub

The statute says
in part: "During the last week
of classes of a regular session
or during the three day period


prior to the last day of class of

Intersession or Summer
School. no examination shall
be given except for labomtoiy
practicals or 'make-up‘ exaiiii

In cases of “Take Home ti
nal examinations. students
shall not be required to re
turn the completed ('Xélllllllll'
tion before the regularly
scheduled examination peri

The rule addresses exami
nations btit doesn‘t address





projects. papers. presenta
tioiis or any other work iii—
structors might give students.

It also allows exceptions
for factilty members.

So students are pelted tita-
chineguii style with count
less other assignments in ad
ditioii to tiiials preparation
between ’l‘lianksgivmg and ti-
nals WPPK in the fall semester

making the last couple of

weeks a lesson about what
hell is like

Students are left with the
weekend after the last day of
classes and whatever days
they may have by chance dur-

ing finals week to study and








prepare for their exams.

Student (‘rovernment
came tip with a proposal in
spring 2000.

The proposal would have
moved the academic calendar
tip two days at the beginning
of the semester.

(‘lasses would start on a
Monday at the beginning of
the school year and the last
day of class would b
