Game against Billikens is trip home for Hansbrough
Friday, December 22, 2006
If anyone wants to commit a crime in Poplar Bluff, Mo., and get away with it, today might be the day. At least 1,600 of the town's 17,000 residents will hit Interstate 55 and head north on a two-hour drive to St. Louis. Many of the rest will be sitting in front of their televisions about 7 p.m. today or will be listening to their radios. Their interest will lie in a Saint Louis University basketball game, not for the home team but for the opponent. North Carolina will be the visiting team and Poplar Bluff's most successful resident, center Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina, will be playing his homecoming game. (Winston-Salem Journal)
