UNC defeats Eastern Ky., 86-65

Friday, March 16, 2007

North Carolina spent the early minutes of its NCAA tournament opener looking like a top seed determined to beat down an overmatched opponent. The Tar Heels then needed almost the rest of the game to do it. Tyler Hansbrough had 21 points and 10 rebounds to help the Tar Heels beat Eastern Kentucky 86-65 in the first round, giving coach Roy Williams an NCAA-record 18 straight years with at least one tournament victory.
