Hansbrough from downtown ...

Tyler Hansbrough is known as one of the toughest inside players in the nation, but his outside shooting just might have put UNC over the top. On consecutive possessions, Hansbrough swished a shot from the top of the key, then made a shot from the left wing that was nearly a three-pointer. The two baskets turned a 71-66 lead into 75-66. The shots also bode well for Hansbrough's pro career. He'll need to hit those in the NBA.
