Carolina PG Kendall Marshall Practices For First Time Since Breaking Wrist

Sunday March 25th, 2012

North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall participated in practice Saturday, a day before the Tar Heels will face Kansas in the Midwest Regional final. His status is uncertain for the game.

“It’s just a matter of if I can handle the pain,” Marshall told The New York Times. “If I’m not playing, we need to do a better job creating shots as a team.”

Marshall broke the bone last Sunday in a win over Creighton. Freshman Stilman White started in Marshall's place Friday against Ohio, and he had two points, six assists, and no turnovers in 32 minutes.
