Tyler Hansbrough sets North Carolina scoring record, but just how good is he?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Tyler Hansbrough became the all-time leading scorer in North Carolina history Thursday night as the Tar Heels disposed of Evansville, 91-73. The previous record was held by Phil Ford.

No one questions Psycho T's dominance in the college game, but much like Sports Pros(e) idol Tim Tebow, many wonder how his game will transfer to the NBA. Like Tebow, he has a lot of doubters.

There's also the argument that he gets a lot of hype that he is white, one that ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski explored in this column. A lot to digest, but I'm with Gene on that one.

What do you think of Hansbrough? What level of success will he have in the NBA?
