A former University of North Carolina standout, Manuel helped the expansion club earn the first sweep in its history last weekend. He had 27 points, eight rebounds and three assists in a series-opening 102-84 victory over the Shiga Lakestars on Saturday. He was 3-for-3 from 3-point range and 11-for-16 from the field.

A day later, Manuel had 23 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one blocked shot.

Manuel is averaging 17.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in 31 games.
