Hansbrough hit by Henderson

Bloody Hansbrough
UNC beats Duke, clinches top ACC seed, N&O, (Good audio of the Coaches after game.)

I saw this live on TV and I still can’t believe it happened. I’ll post more links about it in the morning…

Carolina beat Duke 86 to 72 in a game that gave UNC the ACC’s top spot. But in the last few seconds Tyler Hansbrough went up for a rebound and was hit by Duke player Gerald Henderson. The TV replays were very violent. Henderson cocked his arm back and threw it forward after the ball had left Hansbrough’s hands and it came down on his nose with a lot of force. Hansbrough was on the floor a few seconds reeling in the pain and bleeding profusely. He jumped up amazingly fast after such a blow. Dewey Burke held Hansbrough back whose face was contorted with rage. After the officials reviewed the play they gave Duke a technical foul, threw Henderson out of the game, and suspended him from playing in Duke’s next game.
