UNC’s Henson dresses for ACC title game

North Carolina forward John Henson is in uniform and has his
sore left wrist taped as he is participating in warmups before
Sunday’s ACC championship game against Florida State.

Tar Heels spokesman Steve Kirschner says Henson will play ”only
in an emergency situation.”

Henson missed the No. 4 Tar Heels’ win over North Carolina State
in Saturday’s semifinals after hurting his wrist in the first half
of Friday’s win over Maryland.

North Carolina said his status for the championship game will be
determined at gametime.

Saturday’s game was the first Henson has missed in his
three-year career.

The 6-foot-11 Henson, a junior, is averaging 13.8 points and a
team-leading 10.1 rebounds per game.
