Tyler Hansbrough stands up for little bro Ben
Unless you are a college basketball fan, you might not even know that Tyler Hansbrough has a younger brother. Ben Hansbrough, a former Big East Player of the Year at Notre Dame, went undrafted in the 2011 NBA Draft but found his way to the Indiana Pacers summer league squad this past July. After playing his way to a spot on the team, more recently Hansbrough has been promoted to back-up point guard behind George Hill because of D.J. Augustin’s shooting woes (27% FG, 21% 3PT). In his first stint yesterday, Hansbrough put up 6 pts and 2 stl in 17 min of play.
His older brother Tyler garners a lot of unwarranted, Tebowian (this is now a word) hate, but I’m sure big brothers everywhere will be able to respect and appreciate this. Watch him truly earn the nickname Psycho T when he sees Tristan Thompson throw an elbow at his little brother. Kind of cool.
