After he bombed Tennessee into oblivion, I made the “Jodie Meeks is God” exclamation and after this weekend’s performance, it bears repeating — or at least a derivative thereof. While everybody is rightfully talking about the excellent weekends of Hasheem Thabeet and Blake Griffin, Meeks’ weekend accomplishments deserve mention as well. Andy Katz certainly thinks so. During Kentucky’s win over Arkansas, Meeks single-handedly carried his team to their seventh conference victory with 45 points and 7 rebounds.
It should also be noted Kentucky was without Meeks’ partner-in-crime, Patrick Patterson, who missed the game with a sprained ankle.
