CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina coach Roy Williams says his team's "preparation is 100 percent" to play without injured point guard Kendall Marshall.

 

Williams says Marshall's playing status remains undecided for the Midwest Regional semifinal against Ohio on Friday night in St. Louis.

 

Williams spoke Tuesday, two days after the left-handed sophomore broke his right wrist on a drive in the second half of a win against Creighton in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

 

Marshall had surgery Monday to insert a screw into his wrist. His father Dennis told The Associated Press in a text message the following day that his son is "doing much better" and experiencing less pain.

 

The Tar Heels (31-5) are the region's No. 1 seed.
