|ESPN.com: North Carolina Tar Heels||[Print without images]|
Marshall, the sophomore point guard at North Carolina, scratched his left eye when he was a baby, scratched it so badly it bled.
He suffered from light sensitivity throughout childhood, when he often would bury his chin into his chest to avoid the sunlight during rides in a car. His sensitivity to light has improved. His vision has not. He plays with one contact lens - in his left eye, and probably should be playing with one in the other, too.
"I went to the doctor to get new glasses, and he told me my right eye's gotten worse," Marshall said recently. "So I probably need to be getting contacts in that eye, too. But I'm trying to wait until after the season because I don't want to mess with it midseason."
