SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) -Tyler Hansbrough made his season debut for North Carolina on Friday night, joining the top-ranked Tar Heels' starting lineup against UC Santa Barbara.
Hansbrough missed the first two games for Carolina (2-0) because of a stress reaction in his right shin. Last season's national player of the year had been held out of practice and exhibition games since the injury was diagnosed in October.
Hansbrough had played in all 108 games in his first three years for Carolina before missing the first two this season.
