Tyler Zeller contributes to Cleveland win in NBA debut

Tyler Zeller, last season’s ACC player of the year, wound up getting more court time than anticipated in his NBA debut Tuesday. The 7-foot former UNC star was on the court for almost 15 minutes in Cleveland’s 94-84 win over Washington in Cleveland. Zeller, who was expected to play less than 10 minutes, told reporters after the game that he was “a little nervous but completely excited.” (Raleigh News & Observer)
