4077th T.A.R.H.E.E.L.

Carolina may be without three of its top five scorers in today's game against Virginia Tech.

Point guard Ty Lawson will not play against the Hokies due to his sprained left ankle, an injury he suffered on Feb. 3 against Florida State. Lawson did not play the final 36 minutes of the game in Tallahassee and was unable to play against Duke, Clemson and Virginia.

Sophomore power forward Deon Thompson, who has started all 25 games and is averaging 9.4 points a game, hyper-extended his left knee at Virginia and is questionable for Saturday's game. He was unable to practice Thursday, but was scheduled to practice on a limited basis Friday.

Junior forward Danny Green, the fourth-leading scorer, has the flu. He's probably somewhere puking.

Junior forward Tyler Hansbrough (infected toe), junior guard Marcus Ginyard (sprained right ankle, turf toe on left foot) and senior guard Quentin Thomas (back spasms) are expected to play against Virginia Tech.

Other than that, everybody’s fine.
