    Most Underrated Player for ISU

    After every game I am always surprised when I hear Ejim's stat line. It seems like he always has a quiet 10-15 points and almost as many rebounds. I have never been wowed by his game and he is definitely not a 3 point threat, but as a sophomore is showing a lot of promise now and in the future. Everybody always talks about Royce and his contributions, but I feel like Melvin deserved to have a little praise after his performance in the game tonight.

    Re: Most Underrated Player for ISU

    I agree Melvin is under appreciated (by myself included). I think most people get so frustrated with his inability to dribble (without bouncing it off his leg), catch a pass cleanly and finish at the rim consistently that we forget about how hard he is playing. I was getting pretty fed up with his bad TO's today that I had to keep reminding myself that he was busting his *** and playing really hard and doing a lot of really good things (minus the TO's).

    Kudos to Melvin.

    7 turnovers though, can't have that again. He's having a solid year and he's important to us.

    Re: Most Underrated Player for ISU

    Everyone notices the bad things Melvin does (dropped passes, three pointers, dribbling, etc.), but he's really solid most games. I love how he knocks down free throws and how he has played with intensity as of late.

    I like Melvin, but I wish he could finish more consistently. Seems like it's a confidence thing or something. He's blown more bunnies than a hooker at a fur farm.

    Re: Most Underrated Player for ISU

    One minute I am yelling at him (yeah through my TV) and the next I am praising his play. Inconsistent would be the best way to describe him, but stats don't lie. 15 pts 8 reb in only 27 minutes.

    Re: Most Underrated Player for ISU

    I think one reason he played well because he wanted to prove something to his old teammate.

    Re: Most Underrated Player for ISU

    Melvin needs to take up juggling during the off season. Soften up those hands and he would be a force.

    Frustrating at times, but he's just a sophomore, going to be a favorite by the time he's done.

    Allen helps us win. That simple, ISU is a better team with Allen. So imo, he is underrated because he isn't well received by most...
