No. 8 North Carolina Upends No. 14 Duke, 86-72

Tyler Hansbrough had 26 points and 17 rebounds before suffering an ugly injury in the closing seconds of UNC's 86-72 victory over Duke on Sunday, clinching the top seed in the ACC tournament. But perhaps the lasting image of college basketball's most intense rivalry will be Hansbrough's bloodied face. He leaped for a layup with 14.5 seconds left, but after the ball left his hand he was struck in the face by Gerald Henderson's right elbow. (Tar Heel Blue)
