It will be a quick turnaround for North Carolina, who is set to play on Friday in the 3rd place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis. The Tar Heels are set to face Arkansas in that contest on Friday at 1 p.m. ET.
Ryan had 18 points in Carolina’s loss to the Wildcats on Thursday. He also hit the game-tying 3-pointer to send the game into overtime. If he’s unable to play on Friday vs. the Razorbacks, it would be a big loss for UNC.
North Carolina is now 4-1 on the season. The Tar Heels’ matchup vs. Arkansas on Friday will be broadcast on ESPN2.
