    Deadspin 100 thoughts about 100 NCAA Teams

    30. Iowa State
    Predicted Pythagorean winning percentage: .867
    Remember former Iowa State/Syracuse star Wesley Johnson? Will Clyburn's game is similar. He's a tall shooting guard with good range. Clyburn can shoot both off the dribble or the catch. Like Johnson, he's rangy and can finish at the rim. Instead of losing players like Johnson, Fred Hoiberg is now bringing them to Ames.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I could be wrong, but Clyburn is quite a bit different from Wesley Johnson in my recollection. Wasn't Johnson taller? I think Clyburn is more mobile. I prefer Clyburn.

    Ironically this was the only part of your post that is correct.

    Now you have made me feel foolish and unsure of myself. I checked up on him in the NBA. He isn't setting the world on fire there.

    I see some similarities in the two, but Clyburn handles the ball MUCH better. Probably not as good around the basket.

    No, they are both 6'7". Almost the same weight too.

    That is what I noticed on the NBA website. I was hoping no one would notice it.

    Clyburn is way more attractive. Stupid comparison.

    Clyburn is a Cyclone. The other guy played for some school by the name of Cyracuse. I think he must have lost his way.
