    Booker is a freak athlete man, he just has weaker fundamentals than most

    Re: Niang on offense

    1) Both Percy and Georges have great hands and are smooth scorers. They are a lot of fun to watch together.

    2) Georges' defense is much better than some posters in this thread are saying. I can't remember which game it was, but twice he got switched to the opponent's best perimeter player (whom Babb was assigned the whole game) and Georges stayed in front of him and forced a pass. He doesn't go for fakes, he's always in position, and he moves his feet.

    Re: Niang on offense

    Niang already has the best moves of any post player for ISU. It is going to be a lot of fun to watch Percy and Niang develop together over the next couple of years...especially with the guards ISU has coming in.

    Both could be better defensively though. I doubt Niang had to worry about that too much at prep school since he had Noel in the middle backing up anything that got by him. Both could do a better job on rebounding too, although Percy has improved there.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    This is my main complaint for both Niang and Gibson. They don't rebound outside their area and they certainly won't be outjumping Big 12 posts.

    If they can improve their rebounding, watch out.
