    Tuned in. So far it's been all Noel. And one of the Harrison twins.

    Wow. Noel reminds me of Kelvin Cato with that 90's hair, and those high shot blocks. More like Kendall Gill with the hair.

    First time I've seen Georges play. I am so excited to see him here in a year.

    He reminds me of Acie Earl from the U of Iowa.

    Acie Earl

    Nerlens Noel



    Flat tops man. They were the craze in the 90's.

    Re: Georges Niang and BABC about to play on ESPN U

    Niang ended the first half with 9 points.

    He has to be frustrating to defend. He finishes everything. He has beautiful touch around the rim and excellent ability to get the ball on the glass. He had a couple nice passes as well.

    I hadn't heard a lot about his defense but was pleasantly surprised. He has a high basketball IQ and understands positioning. I was actually really impressed with BABC as a whole. They play a slow down game and really understand their assignments in their 1-2-2. Georges was outjumped for a couple rebounds, but nothing to worry about.

    He is going to be a stud, plain and simple. His post game is already polished.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Georges Niang and BABC about to play on ESPN U

    Positives from Niang:
    - High IQ
    - Soft touch on the block
    - Unselfish
    - Hustle

    Negatives:
    - Average athleticism
    - Appears to have a strong frame, but either is not as strong as he looks, or he doesn't know how to use his strength to his advantage. (Can be fixed easily with coaching)
    - Defensive positioning needs work
    - 6'7'' might be a stretch.
    - Range

    I like what I see. Most of his negatives can be fixed with coaching. He seems like a guy that is all about the team. He doesn't have a very high ceiling, which is why he isn't being ranked higher, but this kid is a high major player and ISU got a steal. He will get solid playing time early and will one day be a starter. His IQ seems to be very high, which is always a good thing.

    What number is Niang on BABC?

    EDIT: Never mind, just showed he's #31, and something like #36 Power Forward in the ESPN rankings.
