North Carolina underclassmen Harrison Barnes, John Henson and
Kendall Marshall will enter the NBA draft.

The school announced their departures in a statement Thursday
afternoon.

In the statement, coach Roy Williams says he is happy the three
are pursuing their goals of playing in the NBA, but sad "because I
won't get to coach them again."

Barnes, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, averaged about 17 points to lead
the team. Henson, a 6-11 junior, averaged about 14 points, 10
rebounds and three blocks.

Marshall, a 6-4 sophomore, won the Cousy Award presented to the
nation's top college point guard earlier Thursday.

Marshall set the ACC's single-season assists record. He missed
the last two NCAA tournament games after breaking his right wrist.

The Tar Heels (32-6) lost to Kansas in a regional final.
