Syracuse is without their big man for the NCAA Tournament, while North Carolina is still waiting for their’s to return. Fayobserver.com is reporting that UNC big man John Henson is still questionable for UNC’s first round game on Friday. Henson sprained his wrist against Maryland in the ACC Tournament and has missed the last two games.
With Henson, UNC is a legit threat to Kentucky. Without Henson, they are merely mortals. Florida State handled them for much of the ACC Championship game. Without Henson, the post depth for UNC just isn’t there. They have talent there, but outside of Tyler Zeller, there’s not a lot of experience down low.
We will keep you updated on Henson’s condition.
