THURSDAY HOOP

#1 NORTH CAROLINA 106, Nevada (Wolf Pack, 11,962 students, Reno, NV) 70

GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS: Tyler Hansbrough scored 26 points, Wayne Ellington added a career-high 23 while Ty Lawson contributed a career-high 10 assists to go with his 16 oints as North Carolina beat Nevada 106-70.

However, the Tar Heels lost junior guard Bobby Frasor to a knee injury in the second half. The injury robs the Tar Heels (12-0) of a versatile veteran who can play either guard position and provides defense and leadership off the bench.

Frasor tore his left anterior cruciate ligament when his leg gave way while he was trying to make a steal near the sideline with 9:47 to play. He immediately clutched his knee when he went down before limping to the locker room. He did not return and will require surgery.

Gavin Grant paced a balanced scoring attack with 23 points, and Courtney Fells added 17, all in the first half, as North Carolina State knocked off Seton Hall 79-73 Thursday night.

The win was the fourth straight for the Wolfpack (8-3) and avenged a loss they suffered to Seton Hall in Raleigh in January 2006.
