UNC's Ginyard practices; Strickland does not

North Carolina senior Marcus Ginyard, who missed Saturday's game because of an injury to his left foot, practiced Tuesday, team spokesman Steve Kirschner said in an e-mail. However, freshman reserve Dexter Strickland, who also missed the game because of a left hamstring injury, did not.

Ginyard, the Tar Heels' starting shooting guard, is averaging 10.4 points and 3.8 rebounds. His injury is a bruise, Kirschner said, and is not related to the foot injury that caused him to redshirt last season.

Strickland is averaging 3.4 points per game.
