No. 5 UNC Gets Consecutive Top-10 Foes After Loss

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's Harrison Barnes is recovering from an ankle injury just as the fifth-ranked Tar Heels try to bounce back from their first loss with a pair of tough nonconference games.

First up is No. 9 Wisconsin on Wednesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Then comes a trip to Kentucky, which replaced the Tar Heels at No. 1 after the loss to UNLV on Saturday night.

UNC coach Roy Williams says Barnes missed Monday's practice after spraining his right ankle against UNLV and didn't sound certain that Barnes would be ready for the Badgers. But team spokesman Steve Kirschner says Barnes planned to return to "full" practice Tuesday afternoon.
