RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson each had 21 points Friday night to help North Carolina cruise by Mount St. Mary's 113-74 in the first round of the East Regional, a game that quickly turned into a crowd-pleasing romp for the thousands of blue-clad fans who filled an arena located a short drive from the Chapel Hill campus.
Wayne Ellington added 16 points for the Tar Heels (33-2), who have won 12 straight and continued their near-perfect run in NCAA games played in their home state. North Carolina improved to 22-1 in those games.
