CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) -- North Carolina underclassmen Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall will enter the NBA draft. The school announced their departures in a statement Thursday afternoon. In the statement, coach Roy Williams says he is happy the three are pursuing their goals of playing in the NBA, but sad "because I won't get to coach them again." Barnes, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, averaged about 17 points to lead the team. Henson, a 6-11 junior, averaged about 14 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Marshall, a 6-4 sophomore, won the Cousy Award presented to the nation's top college point guard earlier Thursday. Marshall set the ACC's single-season assists record. He missed the last two NCAA tournament games after breaking his right wrist. The Tar Heels (32-6) lost to Kansas in a regional final. (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
