Heels gear up to play without point guard
North Carolina is preparing to play without injured point guard Kendall Marshall. The Tar Heels just haven't figured out how yet.
Coach Roy Williams said Tuesday that his team's "preparation is 100 percent" to go without Marshall after the pass-first guard had surgery to repair his broken right wrist.
Marshall's status remains unclear for the Midwest Regional semifinal Friday night in St. Louis, the coach said.
The left-handed sophomore broke his wrist on a drive in the second half of a win against Creighton on Sunday night in the Tar Heels' second NCAA Tournament game.
