College hoops: Plumlee fractures wrist

From staff and wire reports
DURHAM ó Duke freshman Mason Plumlee is out indefinitely after suffering a fractured left wrist Wednesday in practice.
The fracture will not require surgery, and Plumlee will be evaluated on a weekly basis.
“Mason took a hard fall in practice on Wednesday that resulted in the wrist injury,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “It was an unfortunate play, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery. Mason is going to be a very good player for us, and we look forward to him getting healthy and returning to the court.”
Plumlee, a 2009 McDonald’s All-American, averaged 12.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.0 blocks per game in exhibition wins over Pfeiffer and Findlay.
That makes two projected starters who won’t be in the lineup tonight when Duke opens the season against North Carolina-Greensboro. Guard Nolan Smith must sit out two games for playing in an unsanctioned summer league.
NORTH CAROLINA
CHAPEL HILL ó North Carolina officially signed Reggie Bullock (Kinston) and Kendall Marshall (Dumfries, Va.).
“Reggie is a wonderful prospect as a perimeter player,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “At 6 feet, 7 inches tall, he has the ability to handle the ball and be a fantastic shooter. He is also a good defensive player. He’s the kind of young man whom everyone will enjoy watching.”
Marshall, a 6-4 guard, attends Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va. UNC senior Marcus Ginyard also attended Bishop O’Connell.
“Kendall is a true point guard,” Williams said. “He’s a Lenny Wilkens-type player ó very clever with the ball. I love his unselfishness. Everyone who has played with him wants to be his teammate again. He’s a thinking man’s point guard who will fit in well with the way we play.”
N.C. STATE
RALEIGH ó N.C. State officially signed guard Ryan Harrow (Marietta, Ga.), and he will be joined for the 2010-11 season by 2009 signee Lorenzo Brown (Roswell, Ga.).
Brown, a 6-5 guard, is currently attending Hargrave Military Academy. He originally signed with the Wolfpack last November.
Harrow, a 6-foot guard, played part of his sophomore season at Concord Cannon School.
KENTUCKY
LEXINGTON, Ky. ó Kentucky signed 6-foot-5 small forward Stacey Poole Jr. during the beginning of the fall signing period.
Poole averaged 17.3 points as a junior last year for Providence High in Jacksonville, Fla.
