Old Mossy Horns
Yep. By the time Henderson got there, the ball had already been blocked.Coach k did not order Henderson to take out hansbrough lol Unc got the best of Duke most of the time during that 4 year span and I’m sure they were tired of getting smoked……I don’t think Henderson was trying to break his nose but wasn’t going to let hansbrough have anything easy. The difference is how it looked on camera…..it looked very intentional whether it was or not. Even if I wasn’t a unc fan the leaky black play did not look like an intentional play with malice to hurt someone. The foul was not what hurt the kid, it was the fall and landing. Gerald physically broke Tyler’s nose with his arm/elbow and the ball really wasn’t close to whatever Gerald was aiming at. But to think coach k was telling his best player to try and take out the crosstown rival’s best player is over the top. Things like that could back fire really quickly.
It's a good thing that 5'3" UNC player was right there to hold Hanbrough back. Otherwise, it could've gotten ugly.
