Andrew Tyler Hansbrough (born November 3, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Toronto Raptors of the NBA. Hansbrough completed a college basketball career with the North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball team in 2009, and was drafted into the NBA by the Indiana Pacers with the 13th pick of the 1st round of the 2009 NBA Draft. Hansbrough was a unanimous selection for the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference All Conference Team,[1] 2006 ACC Freshman of the Year, and 2008 ACC Player of the Year.

His jersey (number 50) was retired on February 10, 2010 during a Duke-North Carolina rivalry game.

High school career[edit]

Hansbrough attended Poplar Bluff High School in Poplar Bluff, Missouri and led the Mules to consecutive Missouri state championships. (Missouri State High School Activities Association) Class 5 for the 2003–2004[2] and 2004–2005[3] seasons. In 2005, Hansbrough helped Poplar Bluff beat the then undefeated and number one team in the nation, Vashon High School.[4] While in high school he made the Missouri All-State team twice and averaged 28.2 points and 13.4 rebounds per game as a senior. Due to his growing popularity, ESPN featured a high school game on ESPN2 in which Hansbrough's Mules were beaten 56–40 by Greg Oden and his Lawrence North High School team out of Indianapolis, IN. Hansbrough accepted an offer to play basketball for North Carolina, turning down scholarship offers to play at Duke, Florida, Missouri, Kansas and Kentucky.[5]

Collegiate career[edit]

Freshman season[edit]

Tyler Hansbrough led the University of North Carolina men's basketball team in scoring with an average of 18.9 points per game.[6] Additionally, Hansbrough was unanimously selected as the 2006 ACC Freshman of the Year and was also a unanimous selection to the 2006 All ACC 1st Team. This marked the first time that a freshman had ever been unanimously given 1st team All-ACC honors.[7] He was second to J. J. Redick in voting for the ACC Player of the Year award. Hansbrough’s best game as a freshman came on February 15, 2006 when he scored 40 points in a home game against Georgia Tech.[8] This mark set the record for most points ever scored by a freshman in a game in ACC history and for the most points scored in the Dean Smith Center (the previous high had been 38 points by Joseph Forte in 2000 vs. Tulsa).[9]

Sophomore season[edit]

With the University of North Carolina signing what was often considered to be the best recruiting class in the country in 2006,[10] Tyler Hansbrough’s minutes per game took a slight drop but he was just as productive as he was during his freshman season. At the end of the regular season, Hansbrough was averaging 18.8 points per game along with 8.0 rebounds per game.

During the March 4, 2007 matchup with Duke University, Hansbrough scored 26 points and grabbed 17 rebounds while leading the Tar Heels to an 86–72 victory. With 14.5 seconds remaining in the game, Duke's Gerald Henderson, Jr. hit Hansbrough with his right elbow, breaking Hansbrough's nose.[11] Henderson was ejected from the game and received an automatic one-game suspension from the NCAA. Hansbrough went on to play with a nose-guard/face mask through the postseason, before taking it off in the second half of a game against Michigan State, in the second round of the 2007 NCAA tournament.

Junior season[edit]

  • Hansbrough’s 22.6 ppg scoring average his junior year is the highest at UNC since Charlie Scott (27.1 ppg) in 1969–70.[12]
  • In February, while Ty Lawson was injured, Hansbrough averaged 28.0 points and 12.1 rebounds over seven games.[13]
  • Tyler Hansbrough's 27 20-point games and 19 double-doubles led the ACC. His 22.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.87 offensive rebounds, 6.36 defensive rebounds and 9.8 free throw attempts per contest also led the conference. He was second in field goal percentage (.540)[14]
  • Hansbrough is the highest scoring junior in ACC history with 2,168 career points.[13]
  • On February 3, 2008, at Florida State, Hansbrough broke Lennie Rosenbluth’s 51-year-old school record for made free throws when he made one with 16:37 to play in regulation[15]
  • Hansbrough has scored 20 or more points in 27 games and 25 or more 16 times his junior season, most in the ACC.
  • Hansbrough grabbed 10 or more rebounds in 19 games his junior season, most in the ACC. He had ACC-leading 10 “20 & 10” games this seasonyear, seven more than any other player in the ACC.[14]
  • By scoring 39 points against Clemson (February 10, 2008), Tyler Hansbrough became one of only two Carolina players in the past 35 years to have at least three 35-point games as a Tar Heel. Antawn Jamison, who had four such games, is the other. Lennie Rosenbluth scored at least 35 points 13 times in his UNC career to lead that category[15]
  • Hansbrough’s 21-rebound game against Florida State (February 3, 2008) was just the sixth game of 21 rebounds or more by a Tar Heel in the past 35 years (Sean May had 24 against Duke in 2005, 21 against Akron and Duke during the 2003–04 season, Mitch Kupchak grabbed 21 against Tulane in 1976, and Bobby Jones had 21 against Duke in 1973).[15]
  • He pulled down 52 rebounds in a three-game span from Feb. 3–10, the best three-game rebounding performance by a Tar Heel since 1968. He averaged 29.7 points and 17.3 rebounds in those three outings. For the season, he averaged 10.7 rebounds per game.

  • Tyler was also the unanimous choice as ACC preseason player of the year.
  • On October 30, 2008, Tyler was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right shin, then turned his left ankle while driving to the basket just minutes into his first game of the year at UC Santa Barbara. He missed four games, the first he has missed as a Tar Heel.

  • After the win at Duke on February 11, 2009, seniors Danny Green and Hansbrough became the only two Tar Heels to play in four wins at Duke since Mike Krzyzewski took over as the Blue Devils head coach. Fellow seniors Mike Copeland, Bobby Frasor and Marcus Ginyard have been a part of teams that won at Duke in the last four meetings in Durham, but they did not play in all four victories.
  • On February 18, 2009, vs. NC State, Hansbrough broke Phil Ford’s record of made field goals to move into first for UNC's field goals made in a career
  • On February 28, 2009, vs. Georgia Tech, Hansbrough set a new NCAA record for most free throws made in a career.

Jersey retirement[edit]

In 2008, Hansbrough swept all major individual honors in men's college basketball. For a North Carolina men's player to be eligible to have his jersey retired, he must win at least one of six national player of the year awards: the Associated Press, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the National Association of Basketball Coaches, Sporting News, the Naismith Award and the Wooden Award, and wait until his class has graduated. Since Hansbrough won all six,[21] he had his number 50 retired during half time against Duke held February 10, 2010.

Personal life[edit]

Hansbrough is the son of Tami Wheat and Dr. Gene Hansbrough. He is the brother of former Notre Dame guard Ben Hansbrough, who played with him on the Pacers, and marathon runner Greg Hansbrough.
