TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson left Sunday's 84-73 overtime victory over Florida State and did not return for the fourth-ranked Tar Heels after spraining his left ankle.

Lawson, a sophomore averaging 14.1 points and 6 assists, was hurt when he collided with Florida State's Ryan Reid beneath the North Carolina basket early in the first half.
