The North Carolina Tar Heels and the Kansas Jayhawks both wait to learn the status of the former's star guard, Kendall Marshall, for Sunday's Elite Eight contest in St. Louis, MO, but the latter's head coach is preparing as though he will need to face the guard:

Obviously, it makes sense to prepare as though his team will face Marshall, who took part in shooting drills on Saturday. However, the guard could not comment on what his availability for Sunday would be after that, just that it's like Friday's status. He is having trouble "catching and passing" the ball.
If Marshall is unable to go, Stilman White will once again play for the Tar Heels. He scored two points on two free throws while going 0-for-4 from the field. Once again, he'll be expected to help out while Tyler Zeller and others fuel the offense.
