Wings Up Player Profiles: C.J. Bryce


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — C.J. Bryce is another younger player on the Seahawks making an impact on this historic run that they’re on, but he knows hard work is the only way he can keep the success going.

The highly recruited athlete brings the energy to the Seahawks week in and week out.

With that energy, he’s not afraid to take over games just like he did earlier this season versus Hofstra.

“It comes natural when you’re in the game and in the zone,” Bryce said. “Just feeding off my teammates and following a good coaching strategy.”

Coming into his sophomore season, he’s already had his taste of victory after the season UNCW had. That’s what he takes away from last year.

“Going to the NCAA tournament as a freshman was a good experience winning the CAA Championship was all a good experience,” Bryce said.

As far as this year goes, Bryce is averaging 17 points per game and over four rebounds per game, starting at guard for the team in teal.

Being a two year starter at this stage of a career could bring along pressure to some, but not Bryce.

“Not really any pressure,” Bryce said. “I feel like I work hard at it and it all paid off.”

His best game this season came against Charleston with the season on the line in the CAA title game, where he was named Tournament MVP for his performance.

To make an impact like this, it’s all about one thing, “Going hard everyday making everyday count,” Bryce said.

Bryce is going to need to work hard and bring that energy to take the Seahawks to the next step in the NCAA Tournament.

UNCW takes on UVA this Thursday at 12:40 p.m. The game will be broadcast on truTV.
