Tar Heels' Zeller Iffy To Play In NIT 3rd Round

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina coach Roy Williams says sophomore Tyler Zeller is uncertain to play against UAB in the third round of the NIT on Tuesday night.

Zeller was hit above his left eye midway through the second half of the weekend win at Mississippi State. The blow opened a cut that needed five stitches and left him with a mild concussion.

Williams said Monday that Zeller is "50-50" to play and that he wouldn't practice. The 7-footer had seven points and seven rebounds off the bench against the Bulldogs.
