GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Ty Lawson isn't expected to play in North Carolina's NCAA tournament opener.

"There's a huge, huge probability he will not play," coach Roy Williams said here Wednesday afternoon.

Lawson missed the ACC tournament with what is being described as a jammed or sprained big right toe. He said he went through about half of practice Wednesday morning, but it seems Williams either did not see what he wanted or does not think it's worth rushing Lawson back for Radford, because the odds of the ACC Player of the Year competing Thursday are unofficially slim-to-none.

If Lawson is out, Bobby Frasor will start in his place.

The Tar Heels are 1-1 without Lawson this season, 27-3 with him.

"If I don't play Thursday, I'm sure I'll be ready by Saturday," Lawson said. "When it comes down to it, I'm going to play."

Wow, I tell you for a team that is so "overrated" with so many "overrated" players and an "overrated" coach that gets ALL the meadia's love and attention; the HEELS sure do get a lot of comments on CBS. Just look at this thread. There's probably a reason UNC gets so much attention. People dislike the Tarheels for one simple reason-SUCESS. Next to KentuckyUNC is the most successful program in history, and another couple of years like they had this year, UNC will catch them pretty quickly. 

Hopefully Lawson will ok for the remainder of the tourney. I think Radford gets thumped without Ty, but if he's out or less than about 90%, our chances drop dramatically for the rest of the tournament.

Go HEELS!

It is quite apparent that you know nothing about basketball to make such a statement. Lawson is not overrated. If anything, he is underrated. I have not seen a beter PG in the country.

Thank God 'heels fans have an excuse for being knocked out of the tourney now.  Let me guess, same response as the early exit from the ACC Tourney: "Oh who cares, Lawson wasn't there...we're the best team in the acc and actually winning the tourney doesn't mean anything"  The heels suck, I'm just glad they now have been given an excuse as to why they will underachieve yet again this year.  College bball is a team game, you're not in the NBA yet...
