1 NORTH CAROLINA 84, UCSB (Gauchos, 17,726 students, Santa Barbara, CA) 67 - Ty Lawson led six players in double figures with 19 points, including Tyler Hansbrough who had 13 in his season debut, and No. 1 North Carolina defeated UC Santa Barbara 84-67 Friday night.

The Heels opened the game on an 18-10 run, with Hansbrough scoring seven points--all on free throws--and coming up with key assists in his first minutes of the season.

Carolina had six players in double figures – all five starters and freshman big Ed Davis who had 10 points and three rebounds. Hansbrough turned his 25 minutes into 13 points while Danny Green (r) added 11, Deon Thompson 12, Wayne Ellington 17, and Ty Lawson.

After the game, the unphotographed Hansbrough said, "I feel I'm all the way healed."
