North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall's availability for Friday's Sweet 16 game against Ohio is still considered "up in the air," but considering that he broke his right wrist just three days ago, it stands to reason that Marshall will at least be limited if he does play.
Marshall, who is widely-regarded as one of the nation's best passers, is arguably Roy Williams' most important player. His 3.48 assist-to-turnover ratio in 2011-12 is the second-best in a single season in ACC history, and his career 3.01 assist-to-turnover ratio is currently the best all-time in the conference. He's currently averaging 9.8 assists per game, to go with 8.1 points and 1.2 steals.
But where does UNC turn if Marshall can't play at all? Is Stilman White good enough to take this team to the Final Four and perhaps win a national championship? And how does Larry Drew factor into all of this?
