This time, there was no Ty Lawson miracle for North Carolina’s basketball team, as there was in 2009.

“I’ll play this one over and over for a long time,” Tar Heel coach Roy Williams said after an 80-67 season-ending loss to Kansas on Sunday in the NCAA Midwest Regional championship game.
Until sophomore playmaker Kendall Marshall suffered a broken bone in his right wrist March 18 against Creighton in Greensboro, the Tar Heels might have been the best college team out there.
But without Marshall, the Heels (32-6) were good but not great.
