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)

What we learned in the ACC in Week 13

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)

UNC Dance Marathon changes name to Carolina For the Kids Foundation

UNC Dance Marathon is getting an identity makeover. The organization, founded in 1997, has been named UNC Dance Marathon since its inception. This year, it’s changing its name to Carolina For the Kids Foundation. (Daily Tar Heel)

Heels Handle Davidson's Double Teams

Roy Williams spent a portion of his press conference on Friday discussing how future opponents weren’t likely to scrap their defensive preferences in order to throw a zone at a UNC offense limited in perimeter shooting options and long on interior length. Davidson, which primarily plays man-to-man, provided an example of how to defend the post without switching to a zone. (Inside Carolina)

Anson Dorrance declares innocence in academic scandal

Anson Dorrance’s new book looks like any other. A black and blue cover, spiral-bound like a notebook — it fits right in with the hundreds of other books piled up around his office. But this one is different. This one is more than just words on a page. This one is 131 pages worth of wrongdoings, detailing nearly two decades of poor decisions at the University of North Carolina. (Daily Tar Heel)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 90 Davidson 72

The Tar Heels did most things right this game. They played solid defense, ran the floor on offense and shot the ball well from the field. The Heels need to clean up their game from the foul line and continue to find shooting from a non-Marcus Paige player. If the Heels maintain this level of effort while still feeding the big men down low they can go very far this season. (Tar Heel Blog)
