College basketball notes

December 18, 2007

All-American Tyler Hansbrough was listed as probable for North Carolina's next game after suffering a concussion during a victory at Rutgers.

The school said yesterday that Hansbrough was able to fly back with the team, but it was unclear whether he would have lingering effects.

He went through a light workout and will be examined the next two days before tomorrow night's game against Nicholls State, school spokesman Steve Kirschner said.

Hansbrough was injured Sunday night while taking a charge from Earl Pettis with 5:47 left in North Carolina's 93-71 win. Hansbrough hit the back of his head on a television cameraman's knee and the basket support.

Miami -- Widely picked to finish last in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Hurricanes (10-0) returned to the Associated Press' Top 25 rankings for the first time since the end of the 2001-02 season, checking into the No. 22 spot. "It is early, but for where our program is and where we're trying to be, it's a great thing," coach Frank Haith said. The Hurricanes finished 12-20 last season, including last in the ACC at 4-12.

More Miami -- Hurricanes junior guard Jack McClinton (Calvert Hall) was selected the ACC Player of the Week. McClinton scored a season-high 29 points in Thursday's 64-58 win at Mississippi State.

Stanford -- Cardinal sophomore forward Brook Lopez regained his academic eligibility and can return to competition. Lopez, 7 feet, averaged 12.6 points and 6 rebounds last season.
