Transcript Great Championship Games of the Past BY DICK WEISS Philadelphia Daily News He has secured his place in college basketball history as well as a spot in the Naismith Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. But, back in 1982, North Carolina coach Dean Smith was still fighting to put the exclamation point on what has since been recognized as a brilliant career. Smith had coached the Tar Heels to the NCAA Final Four six previous times, but, only one of his teams has ever emerged as national champions. Even then, Smith had to hold his breath through the final seconds as the Tar Heels stepped past Georgetown, 63-62, before a massive crowd of 61,612 at the New Orleans Superdome. The Tar Heels won because a precocious freshman guard named Michael Jordan made a clutch 15-foot jumper with 17 sec- Sam Perkins, who scored 10 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the 63-62 Tar Heel title win, passes to guard Matt Doherty. A View from the East onds left to give North Carolina a one-point lead and forward James Worthy came out of nowhere to make a dramatic interception on the final possession to cement the victory. The picture of Jordan's shot appeared on the Chapel Hill telephone directory the next year. But, the picture of the steal will be etched in the minds of North Carolina fans forever. After Jordan's shot, Georgetown immediately inbounded the ball and pushed it up the floor. Guard Freddie Brown had the ball at the top of the key. Brown looked inside for a second when he thought he had Eric Smith cutting back door. Then, he tried to pass it to all-America guard Eric "Sleepy" Floyd. A split-second later, he could see the championship flashing before his eyes. "If I had a rubber band, I would have brought it back," Brown said. Worthy, gambling in the lane, lunged out, intercepting the ball with five seconds left and then sprinted down the floor before being fouled with two seconds left. Instinct, Worthy said afterwards. "I saw him (Brown) pick up the ball at the top of the key," he recalled. "He was going to throw to someone on the wing. I thought he'd lob it over me or throw it away from me. I was just as surprised that it was right in my chest. "I thought about going in for the shot, but then I tried to dribble out the clock. It is sort of easy to do that sort of thing (make a bad pass) with bodies criss-crossing and guys going different directions." Worthy, who scored 28 points and was selected the championship's most outstanding player by the media, was all smiles. "Now," he said jokingly, "maybe the media will stop writing all those stories about coach Smith choking in the finals." That night, it was somebody else's turn to cry. More than half of the Georgetown players were in tears. Coach John Thompson went up and down his bench saying a private word to each one and rubbing each one on the head. © © © © Thompson hugged Smith at midcourt after the game, showing the admiration he 1982 Championship North Carolina 63 Georgetown 62 Site: New Orleans, Louisiana FG- FT- Georgetown FGA FTA REB PF TP E.

"There were double problems in my mind, which caused me to be more emotional than I normally would be because of my affection for the guy who was sitting on the other bench," Thompson said. "I made up my mind that I was not going to be a nice guy. There is no question in my mind that in our field, Dean Smith is one of the best. In a sense, I felt the student wanted to show the teacher he knew something about the game of basketball because so many things I know about the college game were taught to me by him." Thompson had been a member of Smith's coaching staff on the 1976 U.S. Olympic team that won a gold medal in Montreal. But, now, following the signing of superb center Patrick Ewing from Cambridge, 104
