KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - North Carolina guard Kenny Williams is ready to go against Auburn in the NCAA Tournament after straining his hamstring last weekend, while top bench player Nassir Little is questionable with the flu.

Williams was injured early in the second half of the top-seeded Tar Heels' win over Washington to reach the Sweet 16. He practiced a bit Wednesday in Chapel Hill and planned to practice again Thursday in Kansas City before the Tar Heels play the Tigers on Friday night.

Things are less certain for Little, who has been a steady scorer in the tournament. The 6-foot-6 freshman was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday and could be a game-time decision.

Little had 19 points in a first-round win over Iona. He scored 20 against the Huskies.
