ICTV: Sterling Manley at Media Day
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Sophomore post player Sterling Manley shares his thoughts on the season to come with reporters on media day. Was there any moment when you said, "Man, this is going to be different this year?" Just like working out in the summer? Just working out with the guys. Like my conditioning test, I can push through certain things that I haven't been able to push through before. I was like, "Dang, we're going to be special, it's starting to come along. As a freshman you get tired, and you can't go longer; as a sophomore you realize that you get tired but you still have a little bit left. You know you are going to have the same conditioning. You know we are going to run the same plays. So you know how to push through or coast it out or whatever you want to say. So just learning those things, and this game starts to become slower. Little things are coming to me, and I'm like, "Yeah, this is going to be a special season." There is an opening for the big man spot, whether you go two big or not. What do you think about that and what you can do with Garrison (Brooks) or Nassir (Little)? What is going on there for that big man spot? We are just competing every day at practice. All we have to do is audition for Coach (Williams) every day. When we have practice in 30 minutes it is another audition to show Coach what I can do and just have him trust me more. We are just competing and showing Coach what we can do so when it comes to that game time when that lineup is called you hope your name is in it.
