Hansbrough comes to Ellington's aid

Having played his "home(state) game" last season, Tyler Hansbrough knew the pressures of performing in a familiar place, in front of familiar fans. So with Wayne Ellington facing the same expectations against Penn on Tuesday, the UNC forward took some of the stress off of him. Hansbrough's 29 points and 10 rebounds were enough to overcome a sometimes-choppy defensive performance during the Tar Heels' 106-71 victory. (Raleigh News & Observer)
