Photo of the Day: When North Carolina’s prospects changed

1 Comment

No sense in messing around today. Kendall Marshall’s broken right wrist is the story of the day.

May as well make it the Photo of the Day as well.

Picture this. It’s the second half. North Carolina has a comfortable lead against Creighton, but wants to keep the pressure on because the Bluejays can score nearly as well as the Tar Heels. So Marshall – the Heels’ starting point guard and most indispensable player – drives to the basket. He gets a hard foul from Creighton’s Ethan Wragge and crashes to the floor.

If UNC doesn’t win it all, this is the instant it all changed.
