North Carolina relies heavily on their starting five, as the bench players rarely see playing time.
Against Kansas, the Tar Heels will have to use their backup point guard Stilman White once again, as Kendall Marshall will reportedly sit out the Elite Eight game in St. Louis on Sunday.
Marshall is nursing a fractured wrist, and did not participate in drills on Saturday. His status for the Elite Eight matchup was day-to-day, but all indications point to the star guard sitting out another game, according to CBSSports.com.
Marshall suffered the injury last Sunday against Creighton and underwent surgery on Monday.
I definitely felt the pain, but there's going to be pain there for the next six weeks, said Marshall, after practice on Saturday. It's just a matter of how much I can take.
White started for North Carolina against Ohio. The freshman has not seen much action this season and failed to score a basket on Friday.
