John Henson, who has sat out the last two games with an injured wrist, will be a game time decision in their second round game against Vermont.
Henson did practice but is not 100 percent. Will be interesting to see which route Coach Williams will go. Does he dress and become available in the case of an emergency much like the ACC Championship Game? If Carolina has enough to defeat Vermont, a team they will be heavily favored to defeat, they may sit him giviing him two more days of healing.
Then there is the question of rust. In a perfect world, you would like Henson to get a game under his belt before competition stiffens as hopefully the team moves forward.
Coach Roy Williams, ""John did a little more than the did yesterday, We let him in some live situations. He did not shoot the ball left-handed a single time. He did not block any shots left-handed. So I'm extremely concerned about that part of it, because you guys have seen his play that's his dominant hand in a big, big way. He did block one shot, it was right-handed and he took one jump hook right-handed and it fell about three miles short."
We will find out Henson's status later this afternoon.
