ACC Football Power Rankings: Week 13

6. North Carolina Tar Heels, Record: 6-5 overall, 4-3 conference, Previous ranking: 10; Can you believe UNC is second in the Coastal division? Like last season, the Tar Heels turned it around in the second half. But while the Tar Heels are bowl eligible, they were supposed to be Coastal contenders. Larry Fedora gets credit for turning it around again, though. (ESPN.com)

Video: Fall at Carolina

Light blue is usually the dominant color on Carolina’s campus, but these days, orange, yellow and red have been stealing center stage. From McCorkle Place to Manning Drive, dogwoods, maples and more are in full fall transformation — and treating students, faculty and staff to a burst of color. (UNC.edu)

Giovani Bernard won't change running style after injuries

Kennedy Meeks leads the way in UNC's 90-72 rout of Davidson

It’s the dunk that everyone will remember. A one-handed, monster slam that J.P. Tokoto caught behind his head and jammed home with his right hand on an alley-oop from Justin Jackson to put UNC ahead of Davidson 88-64 Saturday. “I’m confident if the ball’s in the air, I’m going to go get it,” said Tokoto after UNC’s 90-72 victory against the Wildcats at Time Warner Cable Arena Saturday.“ (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC's Kennedy Meeks puts on homecoming show

UNC center Kennedy Meeks' previous appearance in Time Warner Cable Arena was as a 12-year-old brought out for the Charlotte Bobcats' (now-Hornets) halftime entertainment scrimmaging with the rest of his little league teammates. Saturday against Davidson, the Charlotte native was the Tar Heels' main attraction, recording a team-high 19 points with a game-high 12 rebounds in their 90-72 win. (ESPN.com)

Meeks anything but in 90-72 UNC win at Davidson

At 6-foot-9, 265 pounds, big man Kennedy Meeks’ body has clearly changed, and on Saturday, that added athleticism was on display in a 90-72 win over Davidson at Time Warner Cable Arena. When Justin Jackson came up with a rebound with 6:29 to play in the first half and instinctively looked to advance the ball upcourt, it was Meeks’ hustle he picked up on. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Lucas: Pieces In Place

This time last year, Marcus Paige was on his way to becoming a star. This year, the Tar Heels are discovering they’ve got some options surrounding their star, which will eventually make him much more dangerous. He’s taken ten fewer shots in the first three games of this year as opposed to last year, and he’s played nearly 20 fewer minutes. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Davidson: Roy Williams Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: “We were very pleased. I think we beat a very good basketball team that is a difficult matchup for us. I thought defensively it was by far our best game of the year and a difficult situation with our big guys having to go out on the floor. I thought Kennedy was huge inside and Justin Jackson gave us a lift, to say the least, with some of his scoring." (Inside Carolina)

Defense stands tall against Davidson

Sophomore Kennedy Meeks put up a team-high 19 points in front of his hometown crowd in No.6 North Carolina's 90-72 win against Davidson at Time Warner Cable Arena. But to Davidson coach Bob McKillop, Meeks wasn't necessarily North Carolina's best offensive weapon. "Their defense was the best offense they had," he said after the game. (Carolina Blue)
