Tennessee coach taking note of Heels

North Carolina led by 14, 35-21, at halftime despite the fact that All-American Tyler Hansbrough was held to two points.

Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl, who watched the first half from press row, said he was surprised by the margin given Hansbrough's lack of points. He noted that Washington State was double-teaming Hansbrough, but that the Tar Heels have some other very good players.

Of the 14-point lead, Pearl said: "It's impressive."
