CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Despite the 77-58 win over Kentucky, Roy Williams was in a somber postgame mood Tuesday night. Freshman Tyler Zeller suffered what appeared to be a serious left wrist injury.

"Right now it's one of those things where you feel really good about the win, but at the same time you're concerned about Tyler Zeller," Roy Williams said in his postgame press conference.

"They're taking him up to the hospital right now and taking an X-ray and see what it is. Doesn't look good - doesn't give us a good feeling right now ..."

Zeller was fouled hard by Kentucky's Ramon Harris on a breakaway dunk attempt in the closing minutes of the game and fell awkwardly on his left wrist under the basket.

"When I was over there with him, he really felt a lot of pain," Williams said. "It was right on his wrist - I think it was the outside, is what he was saying. He came down and that's the first thing to hit the floor."

The seven-footer, who has started both of UNC's first two games this season, has thus far averaged 10.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.5 steals.
