Ginyard Surgery Successful

CHAPEL HILL --- Marcus Ginyard, a freshman guard on the University of North Carolina men's basketball team, underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured bone in his left wrist.

The surgery was deemed a success according to men's basketball athletic trainer Marc Davis.

"If everything goes as we expect, Marcus should be able to play when practice begins in mid-October," says Davis.

Ginyard was the 2005 Gatorade Virginia Player of the Year and was named Mr. Virginia by the Roanoke Times. The Alexandria, Va., resident attended Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington.

He did not play in the Tar Heels' two exhibition games in Nassau, Bahamas, on September 3-4 due to the injury, which he suffered in late July.
