GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Tyler Hansbrough set the Atlantic Coast
Conference career scoring record and finished with 22 points to help North Carolina beat Radford 101-58 in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday.

Wayne Ellington scored 25 points to lead the Tar Heels (29-4), the top seed in the South Region. North Carolina played without injured point guard Ty Lawson for a third straight game, but had no trouble advancing to Saturday's second round against LSU.

Hansbrough needed three points to pass Duke's J.J. Redick for the ACC mark. He tied it on a layup about 3½ minutes in, then broke the record on a free throw with 15:43 left in the half.

North Carolina led by 19 points at the break, then steadily increased the margin against the 16th-seeded Highlanders (21-12).

Amir Johnson and Joey Lynch-Flohr each scored 12 points to lead
Radford.
