Heels' tired signal: fist and foremost

Gasping for air after a jarring dunk, forward Tyler Hansbrough thrust his right fist in the air as he passed the North Carolina bench in a game played late in the regular season. He was saying he was tired, using a signal first put into practice with UNC teams by former coach Dean Smith. It allows players to take themselves out when they're exhausted. It also helps the deep Tar Heels go full-speed all the time -- no excuses. (Raleigh News & Observer)
