North Carolina began the 2011-12 college basketball season the favorite to win the championship but those expectations have diminished since being hit by the injury bug in the post season. Sports shops have shifted favorites status for today’s game to Kansas based on Tar Heel’s point guard Kendall Marshall’s broken wrist, sustained against Creighton last week.
I had Kansas advancing to the Final-Four prior to Marshall’s injury so now my feelings are stronger that Kansas advances. My Pick – Jayhawks -1 1/2.
