It was a big day for State and UNC, figuratively and literally, as both signed talented big men.

I was just glad to find a magazine about Duke basketball. I thoroughly enjoyed the magazine. It was well written and very informative. A must read for any diehard Duke fan.Camille H
"I get excited enough about basketball season as it is, but this Guide has been on my screen for weeks now and I'm more excited than ever. Not just about Duke, but the whole league. There are some truly unique and remarkable stats in this book, enough to make you just itch for the games to begin and see how the players do this year. I think my favorite article is the one on athletes and social media, though. I've read it three times already! Great photos, great writing, and lots of both. This is essential. " PlanBee

UNC picked up Charlotte star Kennedy Meeks, while State got DeMatha's Beejay Anya, who should fill in admirably when Richard Howell and CJ Leslie are gone.

We're wondering a bit about how Meeks will fit in with UNC. They already have a thick and unfleet center in Joel James. We're not sure how they both will fit into Ol' Roy's fast breaking scheme, but they're going to be a load in the halfcourt.

Meeks is 275; James is currently 260. That's 535 pounds to slam into the rest of the ACC.
