Saturday, February 28, 2009. (AP) -- Tyler Hansbrough scored 28 points and set the NCAA's career free-throw shooting record in No. 4 North Carolina's 104-74 rout of Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Danny Green added 23 points for the Tar Heels (25-3, 11-3). The Atlantic Coast Conference leaders bounced back from their overtime loss at Maryland a week earlier and used a pair of huge runs to reach the 25-win mark for the third straight year.

North Carolina took the lead for good during a 21-5 run midway through the first half that also put them up by double figures to stay, and pushed the lead to 20 barely 2 minutes into the second half while opening the half with a 14-2 spurt.

Lewis Clinch scored 22 points and Alade Aminu added 19 to lead the last-place Yellow Jackets (10-17, 1-13), who lost their seventh straight and were emphatically denied their first victory in Chapel Hill since 1996.
