Hansbrough Puts Up 27 In UNC Win

Tyler Hansbrough scored 27 points and showed no ill effects from a weekend concussion to top-ranked North Carolina beat Nicholls State 88-78 on Wednesday night.

Wayne Ellington added 20 points for the Tar Heels, who played at
home for the first time in a month after six straight games away
from the Smith Center. But North Carolina looked lethargic against
the determined Colonels.

They never let the Tar Heels run away with it -- but never
seriously threatened, either.

Ryan Bathie scored 17 points to lead the Colonels, who shot
14-for-28 from 3-point range.
