UNC's John Henson won't start
By Robbi Pickeral
ATLANTA -- North Carolina freshman James Michael McAdoo will start his second straight game, in place of forward John Henson, in Sunday's ACC tournament championship game.
Henson, who missed Saturday's ACC semifinal game after spraining his left wrist on Friday, will be in uniform but will only play in an emergency situation against Florida State, a school spokesman said.
Henson -- the ACC Defensive Player of the Year who sustained the injury when he tried to break a fall after he was fouled -- was on the Philips Arena court about an hour before tipoff on Sunday. For about 15 minutes, he tested his taped left wrist by dribbling, catching and shooting, before returning to the locker room. He returned for a second warm-up before the team its decision.
