Player to watch: UNC freshman John Henson continues to gain more and more confidence since switching from small forward to power forward and is coming off a double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds) at Georgia Tech.
Observation: UNC shooting guard Marcus Ginyard re-sprained his right ankle at Georgia Tech on Tuesday, but coach Roy Williams expects him to play. "I think that he'll be fine ... as fine as he's been all year; that's the tough thing is he hasn't been 100 percent all year," Williams said. "He practiced yesterday. I tried to give him a couple of breaks, but that was about it."
Williams also said that freshman forward Travis Wear (sprained ankle) won't play, but forward Tyler Zeller (broken foot) will return after being sidelined for 10 games.
