Scouting the Tar Heels

December 21, 2008|By JEFF BARKER

I was watching North Carolina play basketball on ESPN recently. (Is it required that either the Tar Heels or Duke must be on TV every night, or does it just seem that way? Those two get as much air time as Seinfeld reruns.) Carolina has so many weapons. I saw Tyler Hansbrough repeatedly doubled down low. Sometimes, Hansbrough would try to muscle both defenders to the hoop. (Tyler, there's a man open somewhere.) But often the double would allow the Heels to pass to an uncovered player in the paint, leading to a score.
