Kendall Marshall Injury: North Carolina PG To Sit Out Against Kansas

North Carolina Tar Heels starting point guard Kendall Marshall won't be playing against the Kansas Jayhawks on Sunday as he recovers from a wrist injury that was sustained earlier in the NCAA Tournament, according to InsideCarolina.com.

Marshall already had surgery on the wrist and was labeled as a game-time decision for the game, but it appears that UNC will be going without its top playmaker. In his place, the Tar Heels will presumably go with Stilman White at point guard once again.

A freshman that played sparingly during the regular season, White is being forced into some serious action as the Tar Heels pin their national championship hopes on his ability to run the offense. Marshall is generally considered to be one of the best pure point guards in the nation and a quality NBA prospect, so these are big shoes to fill.

White played 32 minutes in UNC's 73-65 overtime victory over Ohio on Friday, and it was a bit of an up-and-down performance. There were obvious pluses, like the six-to-zero assist-to-turnover ratio, but he also failed to make a single field goal while scoring just two points.
