Kennedy Meeks Getting More Aggressive On Defense

Kennedy Meeks had a game-changing defensive performance against Northern Iowa.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Kennedy Meeks posted 18 points against UNI on Wednesday night, but it was his defensive performance that had the biggest impact.

Denying, switching, and defending the way he knows he can, Roy Williams said, was the difference in Meeks's game changing performance. 

"Against Wisconsin I thought he was sensational - I thought he was the best player we had in the game," Williams reflected. "In the second half (against Northern Iowa) I thought he was the best player in the game for us. He's got to have that attention, and he's got to have that attention to detail and listen.

"I went and told him... I was really proud of him."
