Roy Williams in attendance for Sterling Manley’s big game

Roy Williams was in the building last Friday to see UNC commit Sterling Manley as Pickerington Central faced off against Pickerington North.

Pickerington Central won the game by a score of 59-48 and Manley performed well in front of his future head coach. He ended the night with 22 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks – four of which came during a 30-second time span early in the game.

Manley, a 6-foot-10, 230-pound power forward is part of UNC’s four-man recruiting class of 2017. Along with Manley, the Tar Heels will welcome in fellow big man Brandon Huffman, shooting guard Andrew Platek and five-star combo guard Jalek Felton.

Given the losses that UNC will see in its front court over the next year, Manley has an opportunity to play big minutes from the time he gets on campus.
