Heels taking away foes' best shots


North Carolina's top-ranked basketball team can fill several highlight videos with Tyler Hansbrough's dunks, Wayne Ellington's artistic jumpers and Ty Lawson-led fastbreaks. But along with scoring an ACC-best 89.5 points per game, the Tar Heels also are showing off on defense. Employing an aggressive man-to-man sprinkled with timely traps, Carolina has held six of its past seven opponents below 37 percent shooting. (Raleigh News & Observer)
