One-On-One with Cora McManus
How have you changed as a basketball player throughout your time here at Pitt?
McManus: "Over the years, you learn to really get into the swing of things. The academic center helps a lot, and Jenn (WBB Academic Counselor) has done so much with us whether it's scheduling classes or study hall. Freshman year was definitely an adjustment - I'm not going to lie about that, but I was able to finish my first degree in three years. Now I'm finishing my second degree as a senior. I've really been able to take advantage of what Pitt provides student-athletes, and I've used the resources to achieve my goals."
Probably the most soft-spoken of the Panthers, sophomore Cora McManus is definitely not a quiet presence on the court. She has earned the start in the past three games and made the most of the opportunity, averaging seven points and six rebounds over that span.
Last season, McManus spent most of the season on the
sidelines due to an injury and season-ending surgery. The Seattle native -- who
began playing basketball in the sixth grade because her team needed more
players -- is ready to be more of a vocal leader in 2013 on and off the court.
