Dennis Marshall stated the process completed in Chapel Hill, N.C., to place a screw into his son's wrist survived about 35 minutes. He stated when Kendall plays again could be according to "what might be best for Kendall in the long run" which he did not know if the sophomore would anticipate to participate in the round of 16 against Ohio on Friday.

"I'm not sure because Kendall's just being released of his anesthesia, we've not spoken and I'm not sure how he'll feel four days from now," Dennis Marshall stated. "We simply have no idea.

"Could it be impossible he plays a few days ago? No, it isn't. Could it be likely he plays next weekend? It certainly is. It is something we simply have no idea.

The college also stated Marshall's status was unclear for Friday's game within an update yesterday mid-day. The Tar Heels (31-5) would be the No. 1 seed within the Area Regional.
