Tyler Hansbrough Breaks Phil Ford’s UNC Career Scoring Record
December 19, 2008 · Print This Article
Sarah and I had great seats tonight at the UNC game against Evansville at home in the Dean Dome in Chapel Hill. Our friends at Trust Company of the South provided us with a nice upgrade to our normal season tickets which are literally the four worst seats in the Dean Dome… an upper level corner section in row Y.
For this game I had a great vantage point five rows up from half court. I was able to shoot this video as Tyler Hansbrough scored his 2,292 point at UNC (make sure to click for the ‘high quality’ version once you get to YouTube) in a classic Hansbrousian shot through double teamed defense on the low post. When the shot went in off the bank the crowd erupted and Roy called a time out. Tyler thanked and waved to the crowd and shook hands with the team. Photographers rushed the court and piled up around half court to take pictures of Tyler who was shaking hands with Phil Ford.
The new Chancellor of UNC Holden Thorpe was sitting four rows in front of us. I never really thought about it before but he sure had great seats. Hey Holden, if you’re going out of town for any reason let me know and I’ll keep those seats warm for you. And one more question, did you know about those seats before you applied for the position? Well played sir!
