Previewing the Maui Invitational

Thoughts and observations heading into this week's Maui Invitational ...

North Carolina

• After Tyler Hansbrough suffered a mild tweak of his left ankle, North Carolina coach Roy Williams determined that Hansbrough would not play against Chaminade in the first round of the Maui Invitational. Williams had been feeling that three games in three days would be pushing it a bit, but was also considering playing Hansbrough on Monday and Wednesday. Instead, Hansbrough will sit Monday, and most likely play both Tuesday and Wednesday. Hansbrough will sit, but he desperately wants to play.
