Thompson powers Hansbrough-less UNC past Kentucky; Zeller hurts wrist
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Deon Thompson has helped top-ranked North Carolina get off to a good start despite playing without injured star Tyler Hansbrough. Now, just as the reigning national player of the year appears close to returning, the Tar Heels could be losing another key contributor inside.
• In a battle of the winningest programs in college basketball history, UNC improved to 21-10 all-time against Kentucky.
• The Wildcats fell to 0-2 for the first time since 2001-02 and have now lost four straight games dating back to last season.
• The Tar Heels led by double figures barely 4 minutes into the game and never looked back.
