    Re: Niang Highlights from ESPN and Interview

    Good interview for getting a feel for the players. Both players seem very articulate. Hope they both end-up here.

    Thanks for posting!

    Georges rules. Very good interview for a couple of high school kids.

    Niang looks great. Noels high top fade is awesome. He had to have those headphones completely extended.

    The ESPN guys kept pronouncing the "S" in Georges' name - it's silent right?

    Cannot watch the highlight at work on my blackberry. Look forward to watching it when I get home. But ill go out on a limb and say both the guys looked like studs. We would have one mean front court if Noel ended up choosing the good guys as well.

    White, Niang, Noel....=SICK

    S is silent for Georges

    Noel should sound like Nole

    Lots of ifs. If Georges convinces Noel to come with him, if Royce stays more than 1 year. If they all come true, we will definitely be able to compete with KU and UT for the championship.

    Georges is going to look great in cardinal and gold. We'll take Noel too and win the conference.

    Landing Noel would be amazing. When is the last time we got a top 10 player or have we ever?

    Niang's post moves remind me of Vroman's. Very crafty with the ball and can score many ways in the paint.

    Not a bad comparison, but Vroman was more like 6'10", wasn't he? I still see Greg Brunner.

    I can see that too. Yes. But comparing to a hawkeye hurts. I'll stick with Jackson.

    Georges really carries himself well. Very well spoken, and twice the personality of Noel. I believe Noel to be correct when he says Georges is the most underrated post in the country. Maybe not THE most but Georges has to be up there. Excited to see him in Ames next year.

    Jackson didn't have nearly the polish on his moves that Georges already possesses. Jackson scored on very non-traditional, hard to defend moves IIRC.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
