UNC Vs. Kansas: Kendall Marshall To Sit Out Against Kansas

North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall won't be playing on Sunday against the Kansas Jayhawks according to a report by Marshall is recovering from a wrist injury that he suffered earlier in the tournament.

Marshall had surgery on the wrist and was listed as a game-time decision for today's game against Kansas. Without him the Tar Heels are likely to start freshman Stillman White once again.

Marshall's absence leaves White with some big shoes to fill as he will be relied upon to direct the Carolina squad while it is on one of the biggest stages in the NCAA Tournament. White played 32 minutes in the Tar Heels' overtime win against Ohio finishing with two points, six assists and no turnovers.
