NCAA Tournament 2012, Vermont Vs. North Carolina: John Henson Out With Injury

The Vermont Catamounts still won't be favored, but an injury to North Carolina star John Henson could help the Catamounts in their quest to become the first No. 16 seed to pull an upset in the NCAA Tournament.

North Carolina's official Twitter feed shared that Henson will not play Friday against Vermont and James Michael McAdoo will start in his place. The two teams meet at 4:10 p.m. in the opening round of the Midwest Regional.

Vermont outlasted Lamar in a play-in game for the right to meet North Carolina. Led by Four McGlynn's 18 points, the Catamounts ended Lamar's season with a 71-59 victory Wednesday night. Vermont controlled the game throughout, taking a 30-21 lead into halftime and holding on in the second half.
