This time, there was another unusually tall girl running the point, and Nikki Teasley didn't make things any easier on the Crimson than did Jones.
"Marion Jones spoiled me," said UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell. "When I had Marion, you know, you could see over other people and they can't press them and all that."
The 6-foot Teasley was at least two inches taller than all of Harvard's guards, and she towered over 5-foot-6 Crimson point guard Jennifer Monti.
And Teasley had no problem taking that edge and running with it. She finished with 11 assists to compensate for a 2-of-9 performance from the floor.
Teasley's assists gave her 710 for her career. Teasley, who owns UNC's assist record, now is 20 away from the ACC record for dimes. The record is held by former Virginia guard Dawn Staley.
"As a point guard, my obligation is to dish the basketball," Teasley said. "As I'm looking at the stat sheet, I'm glad I did, looking at my shooting percentage."
Teasley hit wide-open Jennifer Thomas under the basket from the top of the key with a no-look pass with 15:43 left in the game, making the score 55-34.
The basket marked the fifth and sixth points of the nine Thomas scored in the 4 minutes, 53 seconds before the first official timeout of the half. All of Thomas' three baskets came off of Teasley assists.
"Nikki's always looking to pass more than she's looking to score," Hatchell said. "She had 11 assists and she did a nice job getting the ball to Candace (Sutton), Jennifer and Coretta (Brown)."
