Where are they now: Tyler Thornton, Christina Manning and more

Many players from our area take their skills to play in college, some to the pros. These kids are the same kids that you grew up with and quite likely dominated your high school team. Some will forget about these guys, but others ask, “Where are they now?” We have the answers.

During Sunday’s ACC championship game between UNC and FSU, Tar Heel point guard Kendall Marshall, an O’Connell graduate, scored 15 points and dished out nine assists. However, the Seminoles captured their first ACC tournament title with an 85-82 win. Marshall helped the Tar Heels rally from a double-digit deficit, but missed a potential game-winning three-pointer with five seconds to play. Marshall set ACC and school records for most assists in a single season; he has 330 assists heading into the NCAA tournament. He also recorded the most assists in three games (31) at the ACC tournament. North Carolina is the top seed in the Midwest Region and will play the winner of the Lamar-Vermont first-round game on Friday at 4:10 in Greensboro.

Gonzaga’s Cedrick Lindsay saw his season end with an 80-72 loss to La Salle in the first round of the Atlantic 10 conference tournament. Lindsay had 17 points and three assists in his final game, capping a sophomore season in which he started 31 games and averaged 11.2 points and 3.7 assists.

At the 2012 NCAA Indoor Track and Field championships, Christina Manning, a 2008 indoor track All-Met at Westlake, won the 60-meter hurdles in 7.91 seconds, the fourth-fastest collegiate time in history. Manning also finished fifth in the 60-meter dash in a time of 7.26 seconds.
