North Carolina Rolls Past Creighton 87-73 In NCAAs

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Kendall Marshall broke a bone in his right wrist during the second half of North Carolina's 87-73 victory over Creighton in the third round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.

Coach Roy Williams confirmed the injury after the game, and said he would talk to Marshall and his parents about his status Sunday night. The point guard still finished with 18 points and 11 assists

John Henson had 13 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in his return from a wrist injury, helping the top-seeded Tar Heels (31-5) reach the round of 16 for a record 25th time. The junior had missed the last three games after spraining his left wrist during the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Doug McDermott scored 20 points for the eight-seeded Bluejays (29-6), who shot 41 percent and couldn't keep up with the hot-shooting Tar Heels.
