    Eric's Play

    I was so happy for McKnight tonight. He was finally given a chance to play, and I thought he made the most of it. He defended well, had a great tip-in, and even though he didn't rebound much, he was jumping about 4-5 inches above everybody to try and track them down.

    I wasn't able to watch the game - but glad to hear that!

    I thought he looked a bit lost out there. But i really liked the effort he was giving.

    Re: Eric's Play

    It's easy to see by watching that he is VERY athletic. He was skying up and above anybody else out on the floor. It's obvious that he needs more experience and more time to develop though. He could be extremely exciting to watch in a year or two.

    Love the way he runs the floor, but I agree, he looked very lost for the most part.

    He did not look lost at all. He played pretty good.

    He needs to play. He brought energy to our team on defense which is what we need. We are not very good defensively.

    That is an understatement - there aren't many guys on our team who want to play defense.

    Re: Eric's Play

    He looked fine out there, especially considering he never gets to play. That tip in was awesome too.

    Let's split the difference here. He looked young, raw, and athletic, and showed glimpses of his potential ability. I was glad to see Fred give him some PT, despite the dire circumstances that caused it. Will he see significant PT in the future (next few years)? Hard to say, but nothing I saw today makes me say no. Nothing I saw today makes me hope he transfers to give KL his scholly.

    Re: Eric's Play

    For the first time this year, he looked like a kid I could see playing for ISU in the future. Up until tonight, I thought the kid had no chance. He seems like an awesome young man and I'd love to see him make an impact down the road. He honestly surprised me today, looked relatively calm and collected out there tonight as well.

    Definitely a good showing for McKnight. Of course he did look raw, but he looked like a basketball player with athleticism today. Earlier this year, he just looked like an athlete playing basketball. Big difference, and it was nice to see.

    "McKnight's tip in is the equivalent of Bo Williams' 50 yard run at Texas A&M. "

    I stole this quote from another board. Lets pace ourselves.

    Re: Eric's Play

    He definitely tried his best. That is all I can ask of him.

    He was very lost when it came to off the ball defense. Not denying he did some positive things, but he had no idea where the ball was unless it was in the hands of who he was guarding. You can probably credit that to lack of experience and being in an overwhelming environment though.
