Breaking News: Hansbrough Decides to Transfer

John LewisSenior Writer IApril 8, 2008

North Carolina junior Tyler Hansbrough is talking about a transfer to another school.

Tyler, the older Hansbrough, is helping his younger brother Ben transfer out of Mississippi State, where he's been a star guard for two years.

The younger Hansbrough played in what now seems to be his last game in a Bulldog uniform in a loss to Memphis in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

There has been no word yet where Hansbrough will eventually end up.

Hansbrough averaged 7.3 points and 23.6 minutes per game during his first season and 10.5 in 33.5 minutes per game during his sophomore season. These are not quite the numbers his older brother puts up, but Ben Hansbrough is certainly becoming a dependable shooter.

The Hansbrough brothers come from an athletic family. Their father was a high jump champion at the University of Missouri in the late '70s, and their uncle is a three-time World Long Drive titlist.
