Kendall Marshall took loss to FSU hardest

Kendall Marshall had a career-worst seven turnovers against Florida State last Saturday, and took the Tar Heels' 33-point loss to the Seminoles hard. Robert Willett photo
Kendall Marshall, North Carolina's sophomore point guard, is in the midst of a brilliant season, and he is compiling assists at a faster rate than any player in school history. That said, Marshall suffered through perhaps the worst game of his collegiate career on Saturday at Florida State, where he committed a career-high seven turnovers.

You saw what happened to UNC’s offense when a defense successfully frustrated Marshall. Now we’ll see how Marshall responds. Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller need to be productive for the Tar Heels to be at their best, but no player is as important to their success as Marshall.

I’m interested to see how he responds especially because he seemed to be the most disappointed out of all of his teammates in the locker room on Saturday. Marshall seemed to take it the toughest.
