Greg Hansbrough overcomes the odds


On the rare occasions Tyler Hansbrough does not feel like pushing up one more bench press, shooting one more hook shot or running one more sprint, the North Carolina forward simply thinks about his older brother, Greg. Seventeen years ago, Greg Hansbrough's battle with a brain tumor -- and his determination to walk, talk and play basketball again after its removal partially paralyzed the left side of his body -- set an example for his two younger brothers that has never waned. Work hard, play tough, and never give up. (Raleigh News & Observer)
