The North Carolina Tar Heels were missing a key piece to the rotation during Tuesday’s loss to Clemson in Chapel Hill. Before the game started, the program revealed that sophomore guard Seth Trimble would miss the game due to an injury.
Trimble reportedly suffered an injury in practice leading into the game and it was pretty evident early on that the Tar Heels were going to miss him.
Without Trimble on the court, UNC struggled a little defensively against a good-shooting Clemson team. But with a very important game coming up on the road at Miami, the big question is whether or not Trimble will be available.
During Friday’s press conference, Davis was asked about Trimble and called him a ‘game-time’ decision.
“He’s continuing to improve, and it’s gonna be a game-time decision,” Davis said at his press conference on Friday afternoon via Inside Carolina. “But every day he’s getting better.”
North Carolina hasn’t specified what the injury is exactly, calling it just an upper-body injury.
The hope is that Trimble is back for Saturday’s game as UNC is facing another tough test. Getting him back into the rotation would be huge not only on the defensive side but on offense as well.
