This list includes at least a few Duke players, so it’s only fair to start things off with a member of the Tar Heels. And what better way to get this party started than with “Psycho T!” From 2005 to 2009, Tyler Hansbrough controlled the paint for the North Carolina Tar Heels. Hansbrough’s energetic style of play irritated his opponents — often times leading to ugly moments on the court. During a 2007 matchup with hated rival Duke, Gerald Henderson delivered a vicious elbow to Hansbrough, breaking his nose. Henderson received a one game suspension for the elbow, and Duke fans nationwide had a brief moment to celebrate during the 86-72 defeat.
