Obama Courts the Defeated Tarheel Vote

"We didn't win the national championship, but we did play pick-up ball with Barack Obama--and that's something!" said UNC junior Tyler Hansbrough, who decided to return for his senior season after a pep talk by the presidential hopeful. "Now we're holding our heads high again."

"I will reform NCAA basketball in the state of North Carolina!" said Obama, who was greeted by wild applause after he guaranteed that UNC would win the national championship if he was elected.

The second-loudest ovation came during the pick-up game when Obama drove toward the basket, evaded a half-hearted block attempt by Hansbrough--and almost scored.
