John Henson hasn't played for the North Carolina Tar Heels since March 9 due to a wrist injury. Not only will he play in Sunday's 2012 NCAA Tournament third-round game against the Creighton Bluejays, but you can expect to find him among the Tar Heels' starting five, according to Andrew Carter of the Charlotte Observer.
John Henson WILL start for #UNC today against Creighton. Regular starting five for Tar Heels.— Andrew Carter (@_andrewcarter) March 18, 2012
Henson will be sporting "tape and a molded sprint" for the game. He shot primarily with his right hand but was able to work on his lefthanded post moves during warmups prior to tip-off. Just how he will be both offensively and defensively remains to be seen.
