    My buddies and I were having the following debate after the NU game: Is DG in the top 25, all time, of Cyclone guards, for a single season? Our votes were 3 for NO, 1 for Yes. What about you?

    Top 25? Hell yes.

    Yes, and I have stats to show it.

    I originally funnelled this list down by taking every Cyclone that has averaged more than 3 assists per game in a season. From there, these stats allowed players to further make the cut...10+ ppg, 4+ assists per game, and fewer than 3.5 turnovers per game.

    Only 11 other seasons have qualified with that criterion and 5 other players.

    Should not even be debatable. Yes.

    Did you have info available for Martinez Denmon and other guards prior to Hornacek? I figured Denmon would make that list as well as Gary Thompson.

    There is no question DG is having a Top 20 type season for an ISU guard.

    Re: Blum: The Odd Trio

    So with our record at 15-14 and needing a win tonight, this will mean this could be the first break even season for DG in the four years would be guaranteed.

    I have their stats available but the problem is that assists weren't tracked until the 73-74 season (one year after Denmon's senior year). Without using assists, I really don't know any other quick way to try and group guards from years prior to 73-74 into the mix.

    25? I'd like to see how someone keeps him out.

    Only because it would be fun to see that many outstanding guards listed.

    But I think Diante easily belongs in a top 25 list of ISU guards.


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

    Well, I guess you have your answer.

    Now, to explore the question:

    1. It sounds trollish.
    2. Or chemically-enhanced.
    3. Or you are really old (maybe you guys can remember guards from the 1920s).
    4. Or just stupid.

    I'm guessing 1 and/or 4 based on the lack of explanation for voting no.

    Nice article. It makes me dream about what it would be like next year if we had another year with them.
