→ Tar Heel Blog Player Review: Kennedy Meeks

But as strong as his first third of the season was, the final two-thirds of the season was marked by inconsistency and illness. Over the last 25 games, Meeks only posted two more double-doubles (both against NC State) and played 22 minutes or less 10 times. As the season wore on, Meeks seemed to stay on the wrong side of healthy and missed the ACC Tournament opener against Boston College. Despite his weight loss, Meeks seemed to hit a wall for the final 10 games of the year, only scoring in double figures once.

“Inconsistent” is exactly how I would describe Meeks’ play this season. It was a little disappointing, since many people (myself included) thought he was going to have a monster year.
