Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson staying

On Tuesday night, shortly after Tyler Hansbrough announced he would return for his junior season, point guard Ty Lawson -- dubbed Dennis the Menace by his coach -- couldn't help but make those in attendance at UNC's basketball awards ceremony sweat a little more. "After thinking about things and talking to my parents, I think it would be best if I take my skills to the NBA. I'm sorry." Then he paused. And grinned. "I'm just playing -- I'll be back next year."
