The #1 ranked North Carolina Tar Heels looked very impressive last night in their 106-70 victory over Nevada. Tyler Hansbrough led the way with 26 points and Wayne Ellington chipped in with 23 as the Tar Heels improved to 12-0 on the season. However, the victory was overshadowed by a knee injury to backup point guard Bobby Frasor. Frasor tore the ACL in his left knee and is out for the year.
Frasor was a valuable cog in head coach Roy Williams’ rotation and his absence will definitely impact the Tar Heels as they enter the ACC conference regular season schedule.
But as long as Hansbrough, Ellington, Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Deon Thompson stay healthy, the Heels are still the odds-on favorites to win the national championship next March.
