Since all have been waiting for anything and everything about the MidWest Region top seed North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall, here is the one thing that comes from the player himself. Or better said, from his twitter feed…

Cast off!

— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) March 21, 2012

Now, what does this mean? I truly do not know, aside that this has to be a positive thing, since if he did not have it off there is no way that he could play. On ESPN there is an article where Marshall’s father said the following…

“All I know is he got it off this morning. Swelling is down, incision looks good,” Dennis Marshall said in a text to ESPN.com.

So as the whirlwind of could/should/may he play tomorrow against No. 13 Ohio continues here are my thoughts on it. Even if the sophomore floor general could go tomorrow night I would hold him back and bring him into the game only if absolutely needed. Then, if Carolina was to make it to Sunday’s game I would play him then, giving all the chances possible for the Tar Heels to make it to the Final Four, something that Doug Gottlieb doesn’t believe can happen, and has the team pumped to prove him wrong. In the end, I believe that the Tar Heels can get past the first game of this weekend, but they will have to have Marshall to make it to New Orleans.
