    Niang senior highlight video

    Man he can score it. Him and Noel together according to this video were unstoppable. Found this on wide right natty lite

    Georges Niang of Iowa State University is The Layup Master - Senior Year Highlights At Tilton School - YouTube

    On a side note Hoiberg said in an interview yesterday that niang dominated everybody 2 days ago at practice. They tried to guard him with everyone and couldn't stop him, they even tried to double team him but he continued to score at will. That's according to the interview from Travis Hines at the Tribune.

    Kid can score. I think he's our X-factor this year. How well does he transition to D1 ball as a freshman? It didn't look like his shot was quite there from the outside, but luckily for him, we have plenty of shooters. As long as he can get to the rim.

    Yeah I think that 80-90% of his shots will be layups/hook shots/dunks. Its nice though that he is at least a threat from outside.

    Re: Niang senior highlight video

    Some people just have a knack for putting the body/feet/hands in the right place at the right time. I guess it's called body control or coordination. He has this in abundance. Any lack of jumping or outright athleticism, will be made up for with his exceptional body control.

    The lack of athleticism may prevent him from being a lottery pick/early entry into the NBA, but I see no reason if he's as good as people are saying that he won't be a highly productive college player.

    Re: Niang senior highlight video

    Usually you get these kids that are so raw when they come to college that you have to teach them these types of things. They usually have to develop a go to move too. I do not see any of that with him because he is so well rounded. If this kid was overly athletic like a lot of the top high school players he probably would be the number 1 player in his class. I just love he knows how to use everything around him. He knows his abilities and how to keep guys from blocking him by using the rim as protection. He is going to be a special player and a scary player once he puts on the weight.

    He knows how to use his body really well and very crafty around basket. He might not be bigger/taller than some players in the league, but he will definitely score a ton.

    Re: Niang senior highlight video

    I'd love to see Georges match up with Basabe of Iowa, who falls asleep on defense, but might have a couple dunks here and there.

    I think Georges would confuse and abuse Basabe

    Is it just me, or do these high school kids look like monsters on these small high school courts?
