Hansbrough Will Be Fine[UPDATED]

Update: Per UNC, Tyler Hansbrough is listed as probable for Wednesday's thrashing of Nicholls State.

Tyler Hansbrough did answer questions following the game last night proving most of his memory of events outside of the fall was largely intact. Via IC:

On if he got knocked out with his late fall to the ground:

"I can’t really remember. I don’t really know how to evaluate that."

On how he felt after the fall:

"I was pretty dizzy… I’m still a little dizzy."

Any problems playing next game?

"No, I think I’ll be fine."

On Lawson dominating the first half:

"You see how fast Ty is. It’s hard to guard him. He was shooting the ball well tonight and he got a lot of penetration and did a lot of good things."

As for whether it was a charge/block/no call, I think it warranted some kind of call, probably a block since Hansbrough was a tad late to the position. This is why Roy felt it necessary to pull a Norman Dale and draw a technical foul for the express purpose of registering his displeasure with the officiating. And there is no truth to the rumor he tried to get a second technical so he could be ejected from the game and give Joe Holliday a chance to build his confidence with a little coaching
