    Tyrus. The dude never lets up... If he makes mistakes (like fouling a shooter on a 3 pointer), he's making them at 100%. That's how you're supposed to play.

    Re: Who is the MVP of this team?

    korie struggles with turnovers. melvin and geroges get in foul trouble. clyburn is inconsistent. all these guys bring alot to the table though, so it really is a tough choice, but i gotta go with tyrus

    Re: Who is the MVP of this team?

    Impossible question but if I had to say right now I would go to with Lucious. Hes not our best scorer, rebounder, or definitely not defender, but his ability to run the team and handle the ball especially against good teams would be very tough to replace.

    I put Babb, he can score from pretty much wherever and is the best defender on the team. Great senior leader as well.

    Clyburn. When he plays well we usually win, when he plays bad we usually lose. McGee is statistically the best player, but Clyburn is the most important player in determining if this team is successful or not.

    Ejim or Niang. Without Niang playing well this season, I'm not sure where we'd be.

    Korie without a doubt. The uneducated masses talk about Will's scoring (or lack) and Niangs potential, but Lucious holds this team together. He is right up there in the upper echelon of ISU point guards. He is completely unappreciated because some people can't get over his early season. He is a phenomenal player, with his ability to explode to the hole and make great dishes.

    Re: Who is the MVP of this team?

    10 or so posts in, and each player has a vote already. thats how close of a race it is! i think this poll should have been started once our season is completely over

    Re: Who is the MVP of this team?

    Ejim. Him or Babb is the best overall player when you factor in their contributions on both ends of the floor. I'll take the guy leading the Big 12 in double doubles only because Babb's defense doesn't mean much when the rest of the guards are terrible defensively.

    Offensive MVP: Tyrus. Efficiency statistics will agree with me. Unfortunately he is abysmal defensively so he has to score a ton to see the floor.
    Defensive MVP: Babb is the best defender but can only guard one guy. When we need a board Melvin is the one who reels it in.

    Sorry but Fred was talking about it on the show last night and I had to start a thread about it.

    I have to go with Lucious, Ejim a very close second.

    I thought we had discussed this in another MVP thread previously. I am not going to waver, Melvin Ejim. He has done so much with his hustle and his strength this season that does not show up on the stat line. Runner up, Tyrus McGee.

    Re: Who is the MVP of this team?

    Will.

    The games we've lost he's shot 33%.
    The games we've won he's at 51%.

    @Baylor and Florida Gulf Coast were really the only games where he's struggled and we've overcome it. If he's off we have a tough time winning.
