The North Carolina point guard, who had been directing a smooth attack for the Tar Heels, had surgery Monday to repair a broken scaphoid bone in his right wrist.

Whether Marshall, who is left-handed, will be able to play in a Sweet 16 matchup Friday against Ohio, a No. 13 seed, is unknown.

North Carolina, the Midwest Regional’s No. 1 seed, became the third top seed to suffer untimely misfortune late in the season.

Syracuse, No. 1 in the East, is without center Fab Melo, who was ruled ineligible just before the tournament.
