LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- Tyler Hansbrough looked like his old self and North Carolina looked like the unanimous No. 1.
The reigning national player of the year who had played in only two games this season because of leg injuries, Hansbrough had 34 points to lead the top-ranked Tar Heels to a 102-87 victory over No. 8 Notre Dame on Wednesday night in the championship game of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

With the win, the Hokies moved to 4-2 overall on the season. Elon, which was picked to finish second in the Southern Conference’s North Division, fell to 1-3.
