The North Carolina vs. Duke rivalry endures long after graduation.

Tyler Hansbrough, the former four-year Tar Heel who graduated in 2009, took a parting shot at Coach K’s retirement tour earlier this week.

Appearing on “Packer and Durham” on the ACC Network, Hansbrough was elated that North Carolina defeated Duke in Coach K’s final game at Cameron Indoor.

“It was a big night for [Duke], and it couldn’t have ended better for Tar Heels fans everywhere,” Hansbrough said. “It was amazing. We loved it. We celebrated. It couldn’t have gone any better.”

He couldn’t believe how big the retirement ceremonies were.

“The only thing I can really compare it to, and I know I’ll take some heat for this, is the Larry David show [Curb Your Enthusiasm],” Hansbrough said. “This season, they have a guy [Albert Brooks] go to his funeral while he’s still alive, so people can tell him how good he is. I thought it was kind of one of those situations. I thought it was funny.

“Hey, K deserves a lot of respect, but Tar Heels fans — we loved that.”
