07:38 AM ET 02.20 | Growing up, Kennedy Meeks could eat -- and eat, and eat -- and he arrived at North Carolina well over 300 pounds. [Meeks], a former standout at West Charlotte High, has undergone a great transformation -- perhaps his most important. The transformation is ongoing, even while Meeks' role at UNC has become more significant. Meeks has started each of North Carolina's past seven games -- all victories -- and scored a career-high 23 points during a victory Monday at Florida State. Entering UNC's game on Thursday night against Duke at the Smith Center, Meeks appears to have finally found comfort. ... "I think that Kennedy should be congratulated," [Roy Williams] said. "He's lost over 30 pounds. He's understanding nutrition, understanding the value of losing that weight that was not muscle."

If KM wants a shot at playing in the NBA, he needs to continue working on his physique.
