"I kind of hid behind the defense, you could say", Meeks said. It's all about the next thing.
The story of the game ended up being the referees. The game will most likely be best remembered for the overzealous officiating that led to a combined 44 fouls being called on the two teams.
The quiet game by Gonzaga's big men allowed North Carolina to have a 40-18 advantage in the paint. Silas Melson is the first backcourt reserve and he had six points, four rebounds and three assists against the Gamecocks. In addition, 44 combined fouls were called in the game.

North Carolina forward Kennedy Meeks suffered the same fate with 9:42 remaining. The lead changed hands seven more times, but the excitement was blunted by the game's 44 fouls and 52 free throws.
It also noted "NCAA March Madness Live generated an all-time best 4.4 million live video streams for last night's championship game, an increase of 29 percent over previous year".
"Based on what we went through a year ago and through this year, it's unbelievable", Jackson said.
"I told my team with three minutes left: 'If you had told me on the first day of practice that we would be in this position I would have taken it.' What we had to do was play the last three minutes".
