    Melvin has ridiculous hops

    His head was at rim-level on his dunk after the inbound steal. He dunks with as much ferocity as anyone in college basketball. We've had some high-flyers, but he has to be in the discussion. I really enjoy watching that guy play. MVP if I had a vote.

    MVP for all the little things he does. Just tireless and always in the right place.

    It's become really clear that he is the MVP of this team. So exciting that he gets another year after this one, too.

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    He is a great all around player, I thought he handled the foul calls and physical play amazingly well today. His play reminds of me of one of my Cyclone favorites Jeff Grayer... has a knack for being in the right place and finishing plays.

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    The thing that's the most exciting about Melvin is his progression each year. He will have a chance to have a very special season next year.

    Exactly! I mentioned this in the post game thread too, but getting him and Niang back is HUGE! I can only imagine that those two will have special seasons next year. Niang will be the best soph in the conference. Just hoping Morris, Thomas, Hogue, and one of the juco bigs can pick up the rest of the slack!

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    Nothing against him, because I think he was a great Cyclone, but Melvin is a really good Rashon Clark.

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    Today was a game that exemplifies what is so great about Melvin. Not knocking him but he didn't have his best game today, he sat with some foul trouble, missed a couple jumpers, other than the dunk not a whole lot stood out. But at the end of the day he had another double/double. He just has a way of making an impact, he's always that steady influence. It might seem like a quiet day but then you look and he has 13 rebounds. You also just have to love that he is constantly improving his game, he and Georges are going to be a great 1-2 punch next year. He'll be a great guy for the youngters we have coming in next year to watch and learn from.

    I really think if we finish this year well and play great next year, Ejim will find his name up in the Hilton rafters

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    I think his athleticism/vertical is underestimated quite a bit, it combined with his physicality are what make him such a great rebounder imo.

    It is possible, would definitely be deserving as by all accounts he is a great student athlete both in the class room and on the court.

    I think Ejim might be one of the greats, though my memory is limited to 90's and 00's.

    I've heard from a bunch of professors who have had Melvin as a student. None of them has ever been anything less than glowing. He's usually known as the best student in his class.
    It's not unusual, even for the profs who really like basketball, to hear them wish he didn't have the ability he has for basketball, because they think he would be a fantastic grad student and professor someday.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Melvin has ridiculous hops

    I really thought he would take a step back this year with Royce leaving, but he has really stepped it up this year. I'm glad we'll have his leadership with a young team next year.
