Lucas: Feast Week

The Tar Heel big man onslaught keyed one of the most efficient Carolina offensive performances of the Roy Williams era. UNC turned the ball over 13 times. Take out those 13 possessions, and the Tar Heels scored on 52 of the team’s 62 trips down the court. It made for a simple gameplan for the UNC guards, who found plenty of open passing lanes to the paint. (GoHeels.com)

Roy Williams Post-Chaminade Quotes and Video

Roy Williams: “We're bigger. We're more gifted. We were really challenged by them early, but over the course of the game our size was probably the biggest factor. We outrebounded them 52 to 23. Kennedy and Isaiah had 20 and 22, and Tony coming off the bench had 14. Now we've got a big-time challenge. I told them it's the big leagues tomorrow." (Inside Carolina)

Recap: UNC 104, Chaminade 61

The Tar Heel trio of Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks, and Tony Bradley shot 20 for 26 (76.9%) from the field for 56 total points, and 24 rebounds. The undersized Chaminade front line was no match for North Carolina's big men as they controlled the boards and had their way inside offensively. UNC out-rebounded the Silverswords 52-23.
