North Carolina's Kendall Marshall Practices, Still Questionable Against Kansas

North Carolina Tar Heels guard Kendall Marshall practiced for the first time since he broke his wrist last week. Marshall participated in light drills which included dribbling and shooting, but he did not take part in any of the team's live drills.

Head coach Roy Williams talked about what Marshall did in practice and said that he will still be a game-time decision:

"Kendall today [Saturday] went through the dummy stuff," UNC coach Roy Williams said. "It was the first day he's bounced a ball, the first day he caught a ball, the first day he shot a ball."

[...]

"Now we want to see if [the wrist] bothers him," Williams said. "[Sunday] at shootaround we'll do the same thing."

Williams said two things would determine if Marshall plays with a Final Four berth on the line.

"He has to feel comfortable and can he be effective in the game in that situation," Williams said.

Kansas Jayhawks head coach Bill Self said that they will prepare as if Marshall will play, but it will not really change how they approach North Carolina.
