Ty’s toe

North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson, who has been battling a jammed right big toe since March 6, spent about 15 minutes with the media Tuesday. I believe the first 12 questions dealt with his toe. The last couple dealt with his toe. A couple of Ty's teammates were asked about his toe, including whether they were stunned by the amount of coverage Ty's toe is receiving. 

So here's the toe update. Lawson said it's feeling better. He ices it around the clock. There was some pain and swelling after the win over LSU, but he thinks he'll be able to rest it and play against Gonzaga on Friday.

Added coach Roy Williams: "It's not going to go away and it's going to hurt the rest of the season until he can take some time off. ... I don't think he's going to be 100 percent, but I'll take whatever I can get, especially if it's like Saturday" when Lawson scored 21 points in the second half.

Meanwhile, here's a couple of articles on GU's blueprint for sustaining success in the Washington Post and And here's a feature by on Matt Bouldin's transformation.
