CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Reigning national player of the year Tyler Hansbrough has broken the career scoring record at North Carolina.
The 6-foot-9 senior needed nine points in the top-ranked Tar Heels' game against Evansville on Thursday night to pass Phil Ford for the record. He tied Ford on a jumper from the left wing with 14:05 left, then set the mark by banking in a turnaround shot with 7:41 left in the first half.
After the record-setting point, officials briefly stopped the game to allow Ford, coach Roy Williams and athletics director Dick Baddour to present Hansbrough with the game ball.
Ford finished his career in 1978 with 2,290 points.
