Hansbrough jersey to be retired February 10 at Duke game

UNC announced today that Tyler’s jersey will be raised into the rafters on February 10 during the home Duke game.

That was quick. Not that he doesn’t deserve it but usually we’re to wait before honoring our greats. The three members of the 2005 team that made it to eternal glory were not raised until two years after their departure if memory serves correct. Granted none were as well decorated during their times at UNC as Tyler.

I wonder when Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington will be honored, as both are scheduled to also get the jersey treatment. Same for George Lynch, who under new guidelines will also be raised.
