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)

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)

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)

UNC, Northwestern, Mizzou, Kansas State to headline 2015 CBE Classic

North Carolina, Northwestern, Missouri, and Kansas State will be the four featured programs in the 2015 CBE Classic, multiple sources told CBSSports.com. The event is scheduled to take place in Kansas City on Mon. Nov. 23, 2015, and Tue. Nov. 24, 2015. Matchups have yet to be determined. (CBS Sports)

Preview & Prediction: #6 UNC vs Davidson

The biggest concern for UNC will be Davidson junior Brian Sullivan. Last season, in UNC's overtime win over the Wildcats in Chapel Hill, Sullivan scored 33 points and was 7-14 from three. Davidson will be undersized against UNC's long perimeter players but at the same time have a pair of 6-9 players that can shoot threes. Prediction: UNC 83 Davidson 70 (Tar Heel Blog)

A Conversation with Harrison Barnes

Harrison Barnes: "It was an extremely frustrating year, but it turned out to be huge motivation for me this summer. To be able to go through what last year was, and then to be playing well on this year’s team and be part of a team that’s 8-2 right now, it makes it even more gratifying. I definitely want to just continue to keep working, continue to get better." (San Francisco Gate)

UNC vs Davidson preview

Last season, North Carolina needed overtime to put Davidson away 97-85 in Chapel Hill. This year, the two teams haven't changed much, at least that's what North Carolina coach Roy Williams said in his press conference Friday afternoon. "They're different, but not a lot," Williams said. On paper, that seems about right. (Carolina Blue)
