Tyler Hansbrough hit a fadeaway jumper off an offensive rebound with 0.8 seconds left Saturday to help No. 1 North Carolina beat Virginia Tech 68-66 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals.
Hansbrough finished with 26 points and nine rebounds for the top-seeded Tar Heels (31-2), who trailed almost the entire way against a team it had routed last month. The Tar Heels advanced to Sunday's championship to play the winner between No. 7 Duke and Clemson.
