Transcript whose team had been one of two that had beaten the Tar Heels — was anything but optimistic. "I would think that Indiana would have very little chance against them," said Krzyzewski. "I mean there's always a chance .. .but I would have to think that North Carolina would have to be heavily favored." Naturally, a great deal of the pregame focus was on the sideline matchup between Knight and Smith — and the coaches did have some fun with that. "I'd take Smith to the pivot and burn his butt," grinned Knight. "But I think I'm a little quicker than Bob," Smith retorted. Behind the humor, though, serious preparations were underway. Smith, naturally, fretted over his team's heavily favored status. "The thing that worries me about Indiana is that they have good young players who have improved," he said. "You get this far and every team is good. People say our players 'should win.' I don't want them to think they should win. I want them to play well and concentrate." Nor did Knight want his young Hoosiers to walk on the floor thinking about their roles as underdogs with nothing to lose. "We saw the way Coach had prepared us for the game. And then we sat down and talked about it. We knew what we had to do. We knew if we'd follow it, we'd be okay." Dan Dakich Indiana "People say this is a game where we have everything to win and nothing to lose," Knight said. "I think we've got a helluva lot to lose. My kids are just as interested in going on to play another game as a team that's ranked number one." Knight had some other concerns. His point guard, Robinson, had a sprained foot. He would play, but his effectiveness was in question. And then, of course, what to do about the wonderous Jordan, who was averaging 20 points a game — an average normally based on that high-percentage shot known as the dunk. "Jordan is obviously a strength they have," Knight remarked in his final pre- Tar Heel fans expected their No. 1-ranked North Carolina team to advance past Indiana in the 1984 East regional. game press conference. "What we have to do is analyze Jordan, see what he likes to do and what he does best, see if any of that can be taken away. Sometimes it can't be. Sometimes you have to make a decision on letting a player like Jordan go and then concentrate on everyone else." Ultimately what Knight decided to do offensively was have his Hoosiers spread the Indiana "defensive specialist" Dan Dakich shut down North Carolina's Michael Jordan. floor in an attempt to avoid North Carolina's half-court traps and work the ball patiently — these were pre-shot clock days — for good shots from the inside-outside combination of Blab and Alford. Defensively, the plan was familiar to Indiana followers — a man-to-man defense with zone principles. Sag back, get in the passing lanes, get weakside help and deny the middle. And then, about three hours before game time, he informed Dakich, a gritty but slow player long on smarts but short on raw athleticism, that the task of defending Jordan would be his. Dakich's reaction? "I went to my room and threw up," he would say later. At game time, 16,723 were in their seats in the Omni and a national television audience was tuning in from their living rooms. What they witnessed was quite amazing. Any doubts the Hoosiers may have had that they could play with North Carolina were dispelled in the first half. Those doubts, in fact, were in the other locker room at halftime. Alford's buzzer-beating 20-footer gave Indiana a 32-28 lead at the break. "We saw the way Coach had prepared us for the game," said Dakich. "And then we sat down and talked about it. We knew what we had to do. We knew if we'd follow it, we'd be okay. And if not, we'd get blown out." North Carolina, though, led only twice 113
