RALEIGH, N.C. -- In the silence just before the national anthem, a North Carolina State fan let reigning national player of the year Tyler Hansbrough know what he thought of him."I hate you Tyler!" he screamed loudly enough for everyone on the RBC Center court to hear.Apparently, the feeling is mutual.
• Tyler Hansbrough had 31 points, his seventh career 30-point game, and all five UNC starters scored in double figures.
• North Carolina shot 57 percent from the field.
• The Tar Heels have now won their last five meetings against the Wolfpack and 11 of the last 12 games in the series.
• Courtney Fells led N.C. State with 22 points.
