Roy Williams was asked about Kendall Marshall's status on Thursday:

"I have a strong, strong inclination that he is not going to play. But, if he comes in room tomorrow and says 'Hey, my wrist feels great' and he drops down on the floor and does 10 one-handed push-ups on his right hand, then I'd say I'll probably play his rear end. But I don't expect that to happen. I mean, the guy can't brush his teeth right now."

North Carolina will face Ohio from St. Louis on Friday night.
