GREENSBORO, N.C. — North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall broke a bone in his right wrist during the second half of Sunday’s win against Creighton in the NCAA tournament.
Marshall was hurt when he drove to the paint and was knocked to the floor by Ethan Wragge with 10:56 left. Marshall hit one of two free throws, then left the game briefly before returning and playing about 7 more minutes before leaving the game with 1:54 left. Trainer Chris Hirth then examined Marshall’s right wrist on the bench.
Coach Roy Williams later cleared the locker room of reporters to inform the team of Marshall’s injury. He said team medical staff will confer with Marshall’s family Sunday night. Marshall’s status for next week’s round of 16 in St. Louis is unclear.
