DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Ty Lawson helped Tyler Hansbrough make it four in a row at Cameron Indoor Stadium, while keeping himself perfect against North Carolina’s most despised rival.
Lawson scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half, and No. 3 North Carolina rallied past No. 6 Duke 101-87 on Wednesday night.
Hansbrough scored 17 points — and hit another late 3-pointer — for the Tar Heels (22-2, 8-2), who became the first team in nine seasons to hit triple digits against Duke.
They came on strong down the stretch, using late runs of 25-11 and 14-0 to first take the lead for good and then stretch it to 17. In the process, they snapped the Blue Devils’ 14-game home court winning streak while claiming first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings.
Wayne Ellington and Danny Green added 15 points apiece. Green and Hansbrough joined former Wake Forest standouts Tim Duncan and Rusty LaRue as the only players to beat Mike Krzyzewski four straight times on the Cameron court that now bears his name.
