Tyler Hansbrough: All-Time ACC Scoring Leader

North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough passed Duke's J.J. Reddick to become the ACC's all-time leading scorer in today's opening round of the NCAA tournament. Hansbrough came into the game needing three points to surpass Reddick's record of 2,769 career points. He scored 22 points in Carolina's 43 point victory over Radford and now stands at the top with 2,789 points and counting. In December, Hansbrough broke the thirty year old North Carolina scoring record previously held by Tarheel great Phil Ford. Just last week in the ACC tournament, Hansbrough passed Sam Perkins to become North Carolina's all-time rebound leader.
