DENVER, Colo. -- UNC junior talks about Saturday's game with Texas...

Jackie Manuel

On his knowledge of Texas:
"I know they play hard. They play physical inside and they are deep."

On buying into Coach Roy Williams' system:
"I think it started last night. Every player bought into the system and what Coach has been talking about. No one has been here before and Coach has all the experience, so why not listen to him."

On the key to defending Texas' perimeter players:
"It's going to be tough. We have to contain them and be there when they are getting ready to take a shot. Hopefully we can get them to just take one shot and box out, then push it down to the other end and make them play defense."
