NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Brady Manek's strong freshman season was largely overlooked while the college basketball world was enamored with his Oklahoma teammate Trae Young.
The 6-foot-9 forward was Oklahoma's No. 3 scorer last season with 10.2 points per game. Now that Young has left for the NBA, Manek will be depended upon more.
"I feel like people really sleep on Brady," Oklahoma guard Christian James said Thursday morning after a conditioning session. "He's going to have a great year."
