Press Break The Post's Rundown of Local and National College Basketball

From the Associated Press:

North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson says he plans to play in the Tar Heels’ game against Gonzaga on Friday.

Coach Roy Williams also said he's optimistic that the ACC player of the year will play in the NCAA tournament’s round of 16.

Lawson missed three straight games with a toe injury before helping the top-seeded Tar Heels rally past LSU to win Saturday’s second-round game in the South Region. He experienced some minor swelling in the troublesome right big toe afterward, but nothing like what followed the regular season finale against Duke that forced him to the sideline.

He said he is walking on the toe better. He is constantly icing it and has kept a compression wrap on it to keep the swelling down.

Lawson is only 1 spoke in the Carolina wheel....No doubt the most IMPORTANT spoke....... and there is NO ONE on this roster that can take his place.....

But last i looked TLaw was on the floor at the start of the 2nd half vs LSU...when NC got blown off the floor on a 13-2 LSU run......

And only after the one UNC "Enforcer" Ed Davis.... came in to replace Charmin Soft Thompson... did Davis give some Kick butt to the relatively soft Carolina line up.... and their fortunes started to turn.....

BENCH Charmin Soft and Play Ed Davis 30-35 minutes.....Stop getting blitzed at the start of a half with a weak spot on the floor....

It's a lineup of Davis- Hansbrough-Green-Ellington-Lawson that will bring a banner back for the rafters...and.....

Only ROY can screw up 2009......
