The North Carolina Tar Heels have seen their lead against the Kansas Jayhawks dwindle down and to make matters worse, star guard Caleb Love appears to be hobbling through the rest of this game with a leg injury.

It’s hard to tell exactly what happened to Love, but he appeared to run into his own player and come away awkwardly from the collision. The guard tried to play through the injury and was visibly hobbling up and down the court. It’ll be hard for the Tar Heels to keep him in there if he continues to limp through the game.

If Love is eventually pulled from this game, look for R.J. Davis to take over as the lead guard for the team. Davis was integral in North Carolina’s victory over Baylor after the Tar Heels blew a big lead, so he might be needed for similar heroics if the Jayhawks complete the comeback.
