Kendall Marshall sat in UNC’s locker room at St. Louis’ Edward Jones Dome with ice on his wrist and bright orange and red shoes. His smile, for the first time it seemed since injuring his wrist against Creighton, rivaled the shoes.
After a week-long search for the answer of how to win without Kendall Marshall, coach Roy Williams thinks he found the answer — and it might be simpler than he first thought.
Without Marshall, advancing will be difficult, and that’s what UNC is preparing for. Williams said 100 percent of his team’s preparation will be to play against Ohio without Marshall. The Tar Heels will likely be forced to change its in-game strategy without the second-team All-ACC point guard.
