Tyler Hansbrough's Records Chase

In case you were wondering.

Tyler Hansbrough needs 35 points to pass Phil Ford on top of UNC's all time scoring list. Ford holds the record at 2290. Hansbrough has 2256. Assuming he is back in the lineup for good, which I think will be the case, the best bet is Hansbrough snags this record against Evansville on December 18th. It is possible he gets 35 versus Oral Roberts but I doubt it since that will be a blowout and UNC's offense tends to be more balanced in those kind of games.

Hansbrough needs 514 points to pass J.J. Redick(2769 points) as the all time leading scorer in ACC history. At present Hansbrough is averaging 22.0 ppg which means he would pass Redick during the ACC Tournament semifinals assuming the scoring averages stays the same. At 23.0 ppg he would eclipse Redick a game earlier and in order to do it on Senior Day versus Duke he would need to be averaging 24.0 ppg. My numbers might be slightly off but that is roughly where he stands. The few missed games are setback to pursuing the ACC mark. Then again, I am not sure he much cares since the national title is the goal and if the Heels get that far, the ACC mark will be easily passed.

Inside Carolina has a thread tracking Hansbrough progress.
