    Niang on offense

    Niang must touch the ball on offense every time down the floor. The kid is just a playmaker.

    He is this team's Royce.

    Re: Niang on offense

    He is as good as advertised on offense. Very smooth and good things happen while he's out there.

    Re: Niang on offense

    I don't see him as Royce yet. I actually do believe he can be that type of player eventually, though. But not this year. He's not a twig by any stretch, but Royce was much more physically mature.

    Also, he and Gibson are a match made in heaven. Love watching those two together on the offensive end.

    It seems they have chemistry down low already. It's amazing to watch them work together.

    Agreed, but I wish he shot the 3 a lot less than he does.

    And did anyone see that fake dribble hand-off for a layup? I was having flashbacks.

    Re: Niang on offense

    When we sub should we have Niang and Gibson both come in at the same time? They work well together down low.

    Re: Niang on offense

    Georges is fun to watch already. He is going to get a lot of playing time, and similar to Ejim will be a young veteran of the Big 12.

    No. Gibson and Niang have both proven to be more effective players

    Re: Niang on offense

    I got a bad feeling that Niang is really going to struggle in Big 12 play. I think the bigger, faster athletes will bother him

    Re: Niang on offense

    Booker is a starter more out of seniority than anything at this point.
