Tar Heels dominating boards against Wolfpack

With 12:30 remaining in the first half, the whistle finally blew to signal a foul against N.C. State after North Carolina had grabbed four consecutive offensive rebounds.

The most embarrassing thing about that for the Wolfpack was that Tyler Hansbrough, UNC’s strongest rebounder, was on the bench at that time.

But a discouraging sign for North Carolina is that Ty Lawson spent a bunch of time on the bench getting his right ankle examined for an apparent injury.

Having backup Quentin Thomas at point guard for the Tar Heels levels the playing field in this game.
