CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Sophomore Tyler Hansbrough and freshman Ty Lawson announced at the team banquet Tuesday night that they will return to UNC next season. According to head coach Roy Williams, freshman Brandan Wright has not yet made his decision.
Hansbrough: "I'm not ready for the next step. Playing another year with Coach Williams will help me improve my game individually and there are also team things I want to accomplish. And college is a great experience for me and I'd like to be here another year. If I improve the way I want next year, you never know what could happen."
Lawson: "I just was thinking that I liked college basketball too much ... I'm real excited because we'll have basically the same exact team and losing only a couple of players. I can't wait for next year and am ready to make another deep run."
Williams on Wright: "He's very relaxed about it, he's not going to be pushed, when the decision is made it'll be made by Brandan - with very slight input from me and some input from his mom and I honestly believe no one else. ... I just know there will be nothing done until Friday of next week."
