Dan Patrick: Sometimes it seems like college athletes can overstay their welcome. Do you ever think of that?
Tyler Hansbrough: I understand where you're coming from. There were some players I used to watch that I got tired of reading about. But I didn't stay in college for the pub. I stayed in college because I like it and enjoy hanging out with my teammates.

TH: Some things defensively, and improving my shot. But a big part of it is me not being tall enough—which I can't change. I can work on my outside game a little bit.
DP: How tall are you? Not program height, because I know they lie about that.
TH: I'm a solid 6'8". On a good day I can be 6'9".
DP: You played with Barack Obama during the campaign. Give me the scouting report. How would you shut him down?
