Henderson Suspended, Hansbrough's Nose Broken

Officials said Monday that Tyler Hansbrough has a broken nose as a result of the hit. Hansbrough will probably play in the ACC tournament despite breaking his nose. Hansbrough suffered what coach Roy Williams said Monday was a small nondisplaced fracture when Duke's Gerald Henderson flagrantly fouled him with 14.5 seconds left in the Tar Heels' 86-72 win. Williams said Hansbrough is being fitted with a custom-made protective mask and should be ready for North Carolina's first tournament game Friday. (NBC 17)
