Tar Heels hit the weights

The UNC Athletic Communications site has put together a piece on new strength coach Thomas McKinney, as he gets the basketball team prepared for the season. Included are photos of freshman Jackie Manuel, senior Brian Bersticker and junior Jonathan Holmes in the weight room.

"The intensity and style of play Coach Doherty wants to employ require that our players be in the best physical condition possible," McKinney told TarHeelBlue.com. "That includes strength, conditioning and mental development. I'm upbeat and vocal and I'll push our guys to make themselves better."
