CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- This was their farewell moment.
Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt took the floor after their 90-83 victory over Duke on Saturday night, sharing memories, thankfulness and laughter with the Smith Center.
The two seniors have spent four years growing as athletes, but also as best friends.
"I'm just blessed to have you in my life," Meeks said to Britt. "Our families have grown closer, there's been ups and downs for me and you, between my freshman year to now, and we're finally here, man. We're blessed to be in the position we're in."
With the regular season now over, they walked off the Smith Center court for the final time -- with pieces of the net in hand.
