UNC sends information on Hansbrough trips to NCAA


    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina has provided information to the NCAA about the hiring of the mother of former basketball star Tyler Hansbrough as a fundraiser and her travels.

    In documents faxed to the NCAA on Sept. 13, the school included summaries of Tami Hansbrough’s trips in March 2009 that coincided with her son’s games in the Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments.

    School officials reviewed those trips and determined no violations took place. Athletics spokesman Steve Kirschner said Saturday the fax was meant to brief the NCAA following media reports.

    Hansbrough raised about $5 million for the dental school foundation before moving to another university fundraising job in 2011.

    She resigned this month after questions arose about spending on trips she took with top UNC fundraiser Matt Kupec, who also has resigned.
