    Re: Niang on offense

    This kid is doing very well for a freshman. Once he gains some muscle mass...dude will be amazing. No pressure though kid ;)

    Re: Niang on offense

    It would only make sense to worry about a guy going up against better athletes if his game was predicated on out-athleting others. Thats not the case with Georges. He may hit a rough patch towards the end of Big XII play due to conditioning, but that's a Georges problem. Won't have anything to do with our opponents' athletic ability.

    These are my thoughts exactly. He can score contorting his body in weird ways, over his shoulder with a hook, spotting up, with a scoop shot, ect. He gets shots off and into the bucket in a way I do not understand.

    Re: Niang on offense

    I agree with the OP that the offense needs to flow through him. It just seems like the offense is more productive when he gets a chance to touch it. As mentioned above, he has a knack for finding Percy in open spaces.

    Yeah, he's good on offense, but what say you about his D?

    It needs work. Not as quick as he needs to be. I have no doubt the effort to improve will be there.

    Re: Niang on offense

    I have not been unimpressed with his D. It certainly needs some work and will probably improve when he becomes better conditioned. But I certainly think he's farther along than Percy was as a FR

    Re: Niang on offense

    Niang is pretty good. And he will get better. The 3's he takes are within the offense. Unlike Korey Lucious who just launches 3's for the hell of it. And IMO the play of Niang when we get to Big 12 play will be less of an issue than the play of Lucious. We just do not play well as a team with Lucious at PG. He is not the answer IMO. Very over rated.

    He is valuable when playing within himself and the offense, but mostly a liability when he does not.

    Re: Niang on offense

    Yeah, as of now he's definitely living up to what Fred said about him. It's always great to have a freshman that looks this smooth and confident. Sometimes i feel like we hoist up too many threes, it'd be nice to really establish more of a post presence (which will only help to open up more open 3s).

    I agree with what another poster said, get him and Percy in a decent rhythm and that pair could do lots of good things for us.

    Re: Niang on offense

    Georges is limited athletically but he makes up for it with fundamentals. I bet you Booker is the most athletic player on the team but without Georges fundamentals you see what you get, someone who is out of position on d and has a limited offensive repetoire

    Booker is not the most athletic on the in any way!

    Re: Niang on offense

    I agree with the posts about Georges taking 3's to keep his defender honest. It is good for ISU's offense to not have both the 4 and 5 defender clogging up the lane. If you think Georges should quit taking 3's do you think Will should stop taking them as well? They are shooting exactly the same percentage but Will has taken twice as many as Georges has.

    As far as pairing Georges and Percy, Fred feels the same way. He commented on how in sync they play in practice and that influenced his decision to start them together. I'm sure we will see them on the floor together an awful lot for the foreseeable future; at least until other tandems can develop that kind of synchronicity.

    Booker is the strongest. I would say that Will, McGee, Babb, and maybe others are more athletic
