Before Sunday, Belmont’s J.J. Mann had made just one 3-pointer in 16 attempts.But Belmont coach Rick Byrd said that he wouldn’t let Mann stop shooting them, that Mann was “so darn cocky” he still thought every shot would go in.In the last 2:22 seconds of No. 12 North Carolina’s 83-80 loss to Belmont, they did.Mann made three in a row, scoring 11 points — including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 14 seconds left. He rescued the Bruins from a second-half collapse, nullified a 22-5 run by the Tar Heels and led Belmont to just the second non-conference defeat of the Tar Heels at home in Roy Williams’ tenure. Williams congratulated Mann after the game, recognized Belmont for its efforts and applauded his own team for its second-half comeback after falling behind 41-34 at the half.But that didn’t shake the feeling in the locker room that UNC never should have been in that position in the first place — that Mann

Je≠ Schoettmer balances football with course load
By Michael Lananna
Senior Writer
Jeff Schoettmer arrives at the Kenan Stadium Football Center at 9:30 a.m. sharp. For the North Carolina linebacker, that’s sleeping in.It’s Wednesday, and on Wednesdays Schoettmer gets a one-day reprieve from his 7:30 a.m. weight-room bludgeon-ings. Wednesday is an easy day. At least, relatively. He won’t get a break from the sweat. It’ll still come, just a little bit later.Time to move. He marches up the inclined walkway toward South Road, tak -ing on the icy mid-November breeze in his Carolina hoodie, navy blue sweat pants and neon green shoes.His hair is glorious, regal, unpredict-ably curled. Golden layers interlock or curve outward, reflecting sunlight as they dangle wildly over his shoulders and back. There’ve been no scissors and no clippers for 16 months, but in that time Schoettmer has grown more than just his mane. A 6-foot-1, 220-pound redshirt sophomore, he’s gained in size since he walked on as a speedy safety three years ago. He’s gained a scholarship, too, along with starter sta -tus at Mike linebacker and entrance into UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.He’s on his way to class now, but first, he makes a quick stop at Lenoir Hall. Chick-fil-A for breakfast — his favorite.He takes a seat at a table close to the reg-isters, setting down a box of chicken minis, a chicken biscuit and a cup of water.“I think we’re going to go to a bowl,” he says a couple of minutes later. “I think we can win the next three.”The Tar Heels had won three games in a row already, and would go on to defeat Pittsburgh 34-27 on Saturday, moving them one win away from eligibil-ity. Schoettmer has been looking at bowl projections online — there’s one that has UNC pegged for the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La., where the Tar Heels lost to Missouri 41-24 in his redshirt season. “I don’t want to go back to Shreveport,” Schoettmer says, laughing. “That was a miserable trip.”He ingests his chicken in a matter of minutes and then begins a much shorter trip across campus.His seat is waiting. Kickoff’s at 10 a.m.
Taking care of business
F of x equals two times the natural loga-rithm of x, all over x.Find the derivative.That’s the first hurdle Schoettmer faces on this Wednesday morning. He’s seated in the fourth row of Math 152 — business calculus — in a tiny classroom tucked away in Phillips Hall. It’s a review day for test No. 3 of the semester, and teaching assistant Joe Seaborn passes out a sheet of review problems — the kind that take an entire chalkboard to solve.How did tests No. 1 and No. 2 go?“They were all right,” Schoettmer says, a

should have never had the chance. There was no solace in the Tar Heels’ second-half efforts.“I think it means we need to play  better in the first half,” sophomore Marcus Paige said. “We’ve had two sluggish first halves, and tonight it came back to bite us. If we make more free throws, we take care of the ball a little bit better and just play a little better defense in the first half, it may not be a one-pos-session game with 20 seconds left.”The Tar Heels’ first-half strug-gles came a game after UNC played  what Brice Johnson called the ugli-est first half he’s ever seen in a nar-row 62-54 win against Holy Cross. The Tar Heels were just 9-for-28 at the free-throw line in the first 20 minutes — sophomore forward J.P. Tokoto alone was 2-for-12. By the game’s end, UNC left 26 points on the board from missed free throws — the most missed free throws in a game under Williams. Williams said that each player had shot 200 free throws in prac-tice during the week and no player had shot worse than 80 percent.“I know for me, just stepping up, I was confident, just the ball wasn’t
Students will have to pay the 7.5 percent sales tax beginning Jan. 1.
By Jane Wester
Staff Writer
 Any New Year’s resolutions about keeping a careful budget will meet fresh obstacles in January, when students will begin to pay a 7.5 per-cent tax on meal plans and tickets to events across campus.Meal plans and event tickets sold on North Carolina university campuses were formerly exempt from the state’s 6.75 percent sales tax, but the N.C. General Assembly repealed that exemption over the summer. The change takes effect Jan. 1. Each county may set its own rate in addition to the statewide 6.75 percent. In Orange County, the tax  will be 7.5 percent. The increase in UNC’s meal plan costs will directly reflect this change.“To give you an example with real numbers, (consider) the Value 14 — currently that plan is $1,725, so it’s going to go up to $1,854. It’s about a $129 increase,” said Mike Freeman, director of auxiliary ser- vices. “But it’s not money we get. It’s going straight to the Department of Revenue.” The revenue from the increase amounts to $625,000 a semester from meal plans alone.
Belmont’s J.J. Mann tries to drive past UNC defender Luke Davis on Sunday.

Biden attends Hagan fundraiser at UNC
By Madeline Will
State & National Editor
 Vice President Joe Biden was on campus Friday, raising money for Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center.The location of Biden’s visit  wasn’t announced ahead of time,  but Stadium Drive was closed to all traffic “for a special event.” Police lined the sidewalks along Stadium, preventing people from getting close to the Alumni Center.The private fundraiser was for Hagan’s re-election campaign, along  with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. According to a White House pool report, the top-priced ticket for the fundraiser cost $10,000 and included a photo and special host reception. The lowest-priced ticket was $500.  According to the pool report, Biden was introduced by Hagan and began speaking at 1:46 p.m. He criticized North Carolina for not expanding Medicaid and referenced the Republican-dominated politics of the state.“You lead and you lead the South and Middle Atlantic states, and then  you go through a period of what you have in Raleigh right now,” he said. “But you always come back. You always come back better.”Hagan is running for re-election in 2014. Five Republicans, including N.C. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis, have so far announced that they will challenge her.Biden told donors at the event that Hagan is able to work across the aisle with Republicans.“The only way to break through this gridlock is with people who can earn the trust of people on the other team, that’s why she’s so valuable,” he said.Biden also criticized the Tea Party at the event and said he hoped the Republican Party would move away from far-right politics.“Your father’s Republican Party is trying to come back,” he said. “The business community ... came along and said enough is enough.  You are going to see the Republican Party wrestle back eventually to a mainstream conservative position and that’s good. We need a strong Republican Party. Because we have to have somebody we can look across the aisle and make a deal  with. I can’t think of nobody better to be there to extend the hand on the other side when that happens than Kay Hagan.”He finished his remarks at 2:20 p.m., and left campus soon after.N.C. Minority Whip Sen. Josh Stein, D-Wake, N.C. Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller and former UNC basketball coach Bill Guthridge were among those in attendance.Students walking past the Alumni Center would stop and crane their necks to get a glimpse of Biden — especially when people at the fund-raiser were on the outside deck.Senior Matthew Ryan waited for about 20 minutes with a friend to  watch. He saw President Barack Obama when he came to campus in spring 2012.He said he didn’t have a strong opinion about Biden, but was excit-ed that he was on campus.“He’s the vice president,” he said. “I just want to see him because he’s famous.”
The private event was a fundraiser for Kay Hagan’s re-election campaign.
2 subjects endorsed for system testing

UNC-system leaders want students to be critical thinkers and strong communicators, and they’re  willing to use standardized tests to ensure it.On Friday, UNC-CH’s Faculty Council unani-mously approved a resolution that endorses the assessment of two subjects — critical thinking and written communication — next year.The assessments, which were piloted at five UNC-system schools this fall, are part of President Tom Ross’s systemwide five-year stra-tegic plan.“Students and policymakers are increasingly interested in a common assessment of learning outcomes,” the plan states. Tests would help stu-dents transfer credits among the state’s community colleges and universities, according to the plan.  According to a UNC-CH survey of 1,173 alum-ni presented at Friday’s meeting, graduates rated critical thinking and the ability to write clearly as the top skills needed to get a job.In April 2013, Ross appointed three system- wide committees to work on implementation of his five-year plan. One of these is the General Education Council, which includes two UNC-CH professors. The council will present its recom-mendations on implementing the tests to Ross in January.UNC-CH Faculty Chairwoman Jan Boxill said amid questions from faculty about the strategic plan, Ross was invited to the next Faculty Council meeting in December. Abigail Panter, a UNC-CH psychology profes-sor who serves as a representative to the UNC-system’s General Education Council, said the assessment’s format — and whether or not every campus would implement the same test — is still  being discussed.But UNC-CH biology professor Steve Bachenheimer said he was concerned the University would not have enough say in the for-mat of the tests.“I don’t think there’s any question that criti-cal thinking and writing are qualities we like to see our students obtain — where it gets fuzzy is assessment,” he said. “There is a tendency to want to bring great uniformity to process across the system.” At a Faculty Executive Committee meeting last Monday, UNC-CH microbiology professor Gregory Copenhaver argued that the competen-cies would have little value for students.“These core competencies are so vague they are utterly meaningless,” he said.One option for the tests, the Collegiate Learning Assessment, was piloted at five UNC-system campuses last spring. Administrators in charge of the tests at Appalachian State University, one of the pilot schools, said the results of the Collegiate Learning Assessment mirrored those of students’ SAT scores.

Senior groups host Gatsby-themed fundraising gala 
By McKenzie Coeyand Jenny Surane

Linda Mews loves any chance to dress up.So when local senior groups came together to host a “The Great Gatsby”-themed gala Saturday, Mews knew she  would be there.“It’s fun to dress up, all I did was add the props,” Mews said, holding a 1920s-era cigarette holder and donning a long pearl necklace. “I was ready.”Mews was one of 100 attendees at The Glitz, Glamour and Gatsby Gala at the Robert and Pearl Seymour Center. The gala  was a fundraiser for Orange County’s senior citizen groups the Friends of the Seymour Center and the RSVP 55+.To the sounds of a jazz band playing big  band music, the seniors of the Seymour Center swung each other on the dance floor for hours and dined on hors d’oeuvres from places like Trader Joe’s and Mediterranean Deli. At the gala, Mews got the chance to learn how to do the Charleston, a popular dance from the 1920s. During the week, Mews spends her time at the Seymour Center in Spanish classes and on day trips  with her friends from the center.She said she has even gone on interna -tional trips through the center to many countries including India, Greece and Switzerland and already has a trip to Costa Rica planned for February 2014.Through the gala, the Friends group raised money to offer better programs and services, like staffing the center’s evening and weekend hours. RSVP 55+ raised money for its annual volunteer recognition  banquet, which will be held in the spring. In total, the event raised more than $7,000.“It seems everyone is doing a Gatsby gala,” said Lee Pavao, an attendee who helped found the Seymour Center and played Jay Gatsby at Saturday’s gala.“It’s really an extravaganza.Pavao said the two groups have been planning Saturday’s gala for about a year.“Before you know it, it all comes togeth-er,” he said. “We don’t all sit in our rocking chairs.”Pavao said the gala’s success was due to the importance of the Seymour Center to many seniors in the area. During the week, the Seymour Center offers educational pro-grams, exercise classes and musical events.“We’re bursting at the seams, we don’t have enough room,” Pavao said. “There are more seniors than there are kids in school.”Kathie Reeves, who played the famous 1920s American actress Gloria Swanson dur-ing Saturday’s gala, said she was happy so many people came to support county seniors.“We have standing room only,” Reeves said. “I’m delighted to see the turnout. I think everybody is going to have fun.”Robert Seymour, one of the founders of the Seymour Center, said the Gatsby-themed event showed the center’s ability to attract seniors from all walks of life.“I always enjoy coming here because I always enjoy seeing how much people love this place,” he said.
Runners honor Eve Carson in 5K 
By Andy Willard
Assistant University Editor
 As hundreds of students and community members raced across campus Saturday, they carried Eve Carson’s legacy with them the whole way.The sixth annual Eve Carson Memorial 5K for Education  brought together more than 1,600 people to honor the for-mer student body president.Junior Scott McGinnis is the former philanthropy chairman to Phi Delta Theta fraternity,  which co-hosted the event with Pi Beta Phi sorority. McGinnis said money raised supports the Eve Carson Memorial Scholarship as well as Pi Beta Phi’s literacy fund and CEO 4 Teens , an education charity created by a former UNC student and member of the fra-ternity.The Eve Carson Memorial Scholarship is open to UNC  juniors who have shown the potential for strong leadership. The money provides for the scholar’s senior year at UNC as  well as a summer excursion.Carson was a Morehead-Cain scholar and a member of the Phi Betta Kappa Honors society. She  was murdered just a few months  before she would have gradu-ated in 2008.The event Saturday drew a diverse range of runners eager to honor her memory.“It was kind of cool because there was people running  with their dogs, there were old couples, there were younger kids that were kicking my butt,” said  junior Christina Campbell.Campbell, who was in high school at the time of Carson’s murder, ran in the 5K for the first time this year and said she had a pleasant surprise when she arrived at the Old Well to start the race.“There was a ton of people there. When I showed up, one of my beloved high school teach-ers was in the crowd — that was really cool,” she said.Participants ran from the Old  Well down Gimghoul Road, past Kenan Memorial Stadium and across campus to finish in Polk Place. Campbell said the run meant more to her because of her time spent at UNC.“Over the three years, it’s  become closer to heart because
More than 1,600 people participated in the sixth annual event.
 The Eve Carson Memorial 5K had over 1,600 runners on Saturday. The race raised $56,000 for the Eve Carson Memorial Scholarship.
I’ve learned to love UNC more,” Campbell said.Though donations are still coming in, the event has so far raised $56,000 — $4,000 more than last year, said Pi Beta Phi President Amy Glenn.“We’re just really happy that all the hard work paid off and so many came out to celebrate Eve’s legacy,” she said.“It’s grown into this huge race that brings the community together.”Glenn said Carson is still a role model for what it means to  be a Tar Heel, even if there are likely no more students attend-ing UNC who would have been enrolled while she was.“It’s supposed to be about Eve and it’s supposed to be about the students,” she said.“It’s to keep things in perspec-tive and remember why we’re all here.”
