    Babb

    I freaking love this guy. He makes opposing players disappear. he is as important to this team as any other player including Royce. If he never plays another game he earned a spot on the Aaa Big 12 First team Defense. Actually, I think he should be be named all 5 spots on firts team defense...now announcing the 20111-2012 All Big 12 Defensae Team...Chris Babb from Iowa State...the end.

    but in all seriousness....he's been playing great ball. He's got a great attitude as well.

    I couldn't agree with you more. He is the best leader on the team.

    Re: Babb

    Yep, leagues top scorer with 20 a game made 11 last night against Babb. More than the margin of victory.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Babb

    Love what he brings to the table every game! If he weren't such a streaky shooter we might have an all big 12 guard on our hands.

    Embodies toughness, grit and unselfish play. Dude is a gamer!

    Re: Babb

    I think the defensive end takes a lot out of him offensively. Which is fine, eventually he will get accustomed to it and his offense will come. He is too good of a shooter not to get his stroke back. Imagine when he starts hitting again, one more weapon. Really an impressive all around player.

    Re: Babb

    anyone think he has a shot at the pros with his size, lock down D and shooting ability? Seems like a perfect 2 guard

    Far from a perfect 2. Not nearly quick enough IMO nor does he have the driving ability or shooting ability to be a 2 in the NBA.

    Color me optimistic but if his shooting were more consistent, I think there is definitely a shot.

    Re: Babb

    Any of you statisticians out there know what opposing players are averaging against Babb? Seems like he consistently cuts the other guys ppg in half.

    Who is a ton better shooter than Babb has ever shown to be and is still only a bench player in the NBA. If you are superior at either driving or shooting you can be useful...Babb excels at neither. How many defensive specialists have you heard of in the NBA who have very below average offensive skills for the NBA?

    Re: Babb

    Dude reminds me of Shawn Bankhead who was the defensive specialist under Floyd when we had Willoughby, Pratt, and company. Except Babb is a much much better shooter. Every team needs one or two guys on the roster who are the erasers. The points they take away are sometimes more valuable than those they score.
