  • UNC's Tyler Hansbrough to have his #50 retired

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Tyler Hansbrough will soon take his place among a select group of North Carolina basketball greats.

    The junior was honored as national player of the year by The Sporting News on Tuesday, ensuring he will become just the eighth Tar Heel to have his number retired. When he leaves school, Hansbrough will join a list that includes Michael Jordan, James Worthy and Phil Ford on the distinguished front row of jerseys hanging from the Smith Center rafters.

    "It truly is something special to have accomplished," Hansbrough said. "In fact, it's kind of hard to sit here and talk about how it feels to be put in the same category as the players who are up there already."

    Antawn Jamison, unanimous national player of the year in 1998, was the last Tar Heel to have his jersey retired.

    "There will never be another one just like him," North Carolina coach Roy Williams said. "I am so lucky to be his coach. For the rest of my career, I will be able to look up into that first row and see his jersey ... and I know that will bring a big smile to my face."

    The 6-foot-9 Hansbrough led the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring (23.1 points) and rebounding (10.5) this season for the top-ranked Tar Heels (29-2, 14-2 ACC).

    For a North Carolina men's player to have his jersey retired, he must win at least one of six national player of the year awards: The Associated Press, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the National Association of Basketball Coaches, The Sporting News, the Wooden Award and the Naismith Award.

          Boors & Bernstein on 670 in Chicago say that Hansbrough will have a lackluster NBA career, most likely NBDL....FWIW.

          funny.

            I heard some guys talking the other day about how he would be a low 1st or high 2nd round pick.

              Shouldn't he be officially done playing there before they announce something like this? Could have sworn I heard during the duke game that they were thinking he was going to come back for his senior year.

                National Player of the Year should be Beasley.

                    I'm sure he will. B&B were just debating how good he'll actually be.

                      That was also part of their debate but I was too busy watching the game than getting into some conversation about that.

                        He suffers from White man's analysis of his game.

                        Those are not considered likeable qualities for an NBA player -

                          Even if this were true, what does this have to do with a college's decision to retire a college number for performance over the course of a college career?

                          If we were to look at pro career to determine whether a collegiate number should be retired, Duke would never be able to retire any number, Indiana would have to revoke all but Thomas, and Virginia should have never honored Sampson for being 3 time player of the year.
                          From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                          For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


                          I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

                          The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.
