    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Good question. I think I'd go with Ejim, as he plays within himself, and within the team concept. He also has a calm and maturity about him that is well beyond his years.

    In fact, if I was picking one of them to build a team around, it would be Ejim for sure.

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Very tough question... Gilstrap was explosive, but often times could get careless while trying to create. Ejim takes high percentage shots, and doesn't try to do more than what he is capable of.... Edge goes to Ejim

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Ejim is a much better ball handler and plays better defense.


    Go Cyclones!!

    The question was if there was a game to win tomorrow.....

    But Ejim has a WAY...... higher ceiling for potential than Gilstrap IMO

    That is where I struggle... Do I take Gilstrap's potential to explode for points along with his turnovers or do I take Ejim's steady play?

    Right now, Gilstrap averaged 2 pts/game more and averaged 2 reb/game more. BUT he averaged 2 more turnovers and Ejim is averaging double in steals.

    And let's be realistic, Gilstrap was asked to score points where as Ejim is being asked to be more of a role player right now.

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Tomorrow, I would take Gilstarp. A few years from now, there is no question in my mind I'm probably going to rather have Ejim

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Ejim. I haven't watched a single game this year, but looking at his stat lines and reading the pub on him, it appears to me that Ejim is a much more well rounded player. 'Strap had game, but he had a lot of off nights.

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    I am going with Gilstrap being coached by Hoiberg. You have to realize how all the players that returned and look good this year(Garret, Chistopherson, JVB) looked pretty pathetic playing for McD. Wesley Johnson looked unoccupied most of the time his two years here, then he transferred and was an instant AA. I am pretty sure Brackins and Gilstrap playing for Hoiberg, with a little Lutz assistance, would be top Big 12 performers. Gilstrap was also more proficient at rebounding, longer than Ejim, and all around better at the 4(where I think Ejim is better at the 3). Since we need a 4 more than a 3, I am going with Gilstrap.

    Either way, I would make sure that I was not excited.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Gilstrap. No question about it. Ejim has been great and is a better ball handler than Gilstrap but he is still raw when taking it to the hoop. I think Gilstrap would have been a better fit for this get out and run offense. Plus he shoots the 3 a little better than Ejim at this point.

    With that said, Ejim will be a better player when he is a junior than Gilstrap was as a senior. Both good players who I am glad where/are Cyclones

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Gilstrap would've been awesome in FH's offense. Great rebounder, fast on the break, and could finish. How many times did we watch Gilstrap try to drive a clogged lane? He'd be a completely different player under FH. I like Ejim too, just hard to compare given how different the offenses were.

    Re: Ejim vs Gilstrap

    Ejim shoots 3% higher FT than Gilstrap. I don't think that is a good piece to the argument.

    Gilstrap averaged 9 rebounds and we played at a slower pace last year and had Craig Brackins. He would average 11 rebounds at this point this year IMO.

    Gilstrap was a stronger as he should be being 4 years older than Ejim.

    Gilstrap was a tad more athletic (vertically) and could do really well with the improved spacing that this ISU team has over last year.

    So this year it is Gilstrap. Going forward Ejim is the better looking prospect
