    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.

    Re: Niang on offense

    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.

    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.

    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

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