Was working my way thru the Blue Ribbon Yearbook & came across this:

One of the pleasant surprises for the Sycamores over the summer was 6'6" Jr. forward Manny Arop, a transfer from Gonzaga who sat out last season.

Arop played 2 seasons at Gonzaga, averaging 4.6 points & 2.6 rebounds as a soph. after playing 31 games as a freshman.

Beacause Arop sat out last season, (Coach) Lansing wasn't exactly sure what he was going to get out of him.

"But he has really come out as a player", Lansing said. "Oh man, has he turned the corner. A redshirt year is hard for a player. You have to come to practice every day, work hard, but on game night you can't do anything. But he's really taken advantage of that year & become a better player. It was like the light switched on for him."


Good Luck Manny & much success.

Indiana St. vs. UCLA tonight at 8:00PM. Arop will be able to showcase his talents. Nice dessert following the main course.

Absolutely. Nice quote by the coach, that 'the light turned on for him.' That what I was hoping would happen while he was at GU, but some players need more time. Hopefully he is a big part of Ind St's season and does well. Good luck Manny!
