Hansbrough Breaks Scoring Record In Rout Of Evansville 91-73
Hansbrough scored 20 points Thursday night to break the storied program's career scoring record and help the Tar Heels remain unbeaten with a 91-73 victory over Evansville.
The reigning national player of the year finished 7-for-14 from the field and had nine rebounds for North Carolina (10-0), which shook off a slow start and stretched the lead to double figures shortly after Hansbrough passed Phil Ford for the record midway through the first half. Ford, now an assistant coach to fellow Tar Heel alumnus Larry Brown with the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, finished his career in 1978 with 2,290 points.
Alabi's Career Night Leads Seminoles to Victory
The Seminoles (11-1) outscored the Buccaneers 46-16 in the paint behind the dominant play of the 7-foot-1 Alabi and 6-11 fellow freshman Xavier Gibson, who finished with a career-high 11 points.
Jamarco Warren led Charleston Southern (5-5) with a game-high 21 points, but the Buccaneers managed just seven second-half field goals.
On the heels of its most lopsided victory of the season, Florida State has equaled its best 12-game start in program history heading into Sunday's home game against No. 3 Pittsburgh.
