    We need to give Melvin some love...

    Don't know why a guy can go off for 23 points and 12 rebounds and get no picture coverage.

    The Des Moines Register had none today (5 good photos of other Cyclones, however).

    The CycloneFanatic Photo gallery had only 1.

    Let's step it up for Mel....

    I offered to kiss him right on the lips during the OSU game thread. Not sure if I'm willing to go farther than that, but let's see how this postseason plays out

    Melvin is such a machine we forget double-doubles aren't a regular thing for most players.

    That's right. Make him work for it. Don't give it all up at once.

    I believe he only needs 8 points tonight to reach 1000

    He was a man yesterday. Single handidly kept us within reach until Clyburn and the rest warmed up. Babb and McGee also came huge. I love that these guys have the confidence to keep shooting

    I didn't realize he was scoring so much until I looked at the box score during the second half.

    Jake Knott gave Melvin some twitter love last night, I think that means more than any of us peons giving him a shoutout. He is MVP worthy though.

    Like Fred said about incentives for winning in contracts, you have to have something to play/coach for.

    I love me some Melvin! There, does that take care of it? He's been amazing and consistent all year. We struggle most when he gets in foul trouble.

    Melvin was hustling and moving too quick, all of his pictures were too blurry.

    Re: We need to give Melvin some love...

    Jeff Grayer was that steady player for ISU that filled it up every single game while playing the best defense on the team. He was often taken for granted after games when someone stepped up while he did the amazing job he did every game. It isn't right, but it is the way it often works. Babb is often in the same boat with his lock down defense.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Re: We need to give Melvin some love...

    Agree. I know they were talking about him being a "glue" guy, but I really do feel he's the MVP of this team. it's fun to watch him go after rebounds and just work constantly out there.

    If he maintains and/or improves next year, I think he will really solidify himself as a Cyclone legend. As another poster said, to lead the league in double-doubles is no small feat.
