North Carolina Players to Watch: G Kendall Marshall, 6-4 So. (6.9 ppg, 9.7 apg, 1.3 spg); F Tyler Zeller, 7-0 Sr. (15.7 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 54.5% FG); F John Henson, 6-11 Jr. (14 ppg, 10.4 rpg, 50.1% FG). With eight assists in Wednesday’s 88-64 win over Maryland, Marshall now holds the UNC single-season record with 289. He’s tied for third in ACC history with Duke’s Bobby Hurley and needs 15 to surpass Georgia Tech’s Craig Neal to become the league’s all-time single-season leader.

Storylines: The ACC regular-season title, the No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament and a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament are on the line.
