The University of Kentucky could have possibly sealed it's 2012 National Championship at the 14:59 mark in the 1st quarter of the UNC vs MD game today. It appears, at the very least, that John Henson has a bad sprain in his left wrist, and could be broken.
Tar Heel fans must wait to get the report on his status which bears a tremendous responsibility on the Heels tournament success. What a year... Leslie McDonald, Dexter Strickland, and now the possibility of losing Henson. UK fans should feel incredibly fortunate to have dodged the injury bug, another piece of the puzzle to crafting a title.
If Henson is OK, look out UK. The Heels are peaking and playing as well as any team in the Country and are the biggest threat to UK winning it's 8th title. There's no doubt that McAdoo and Hubert will be getting significant minutes for the rest of the ACC Tournament and the first 2 rounds of the NCAA Tournament, which will help their development at this crucial juncture.
For any doubters, don't dismiss what the Heels did to Duke... in Durham, last Saturday. That was emphatic against a very good team in the most hostile environment in college hoops. They've also weathered the storm of losing Henson for the rest of the Maryland game and playing most of the 2nd half without Zeller. This is a very dangerous team.
Here's to healing Henson and hopefully a somewhat full strength rematch with UK... Go Heels!
