    Coincidence? I don't think so.

    Let's hope the human Thomas isn't useful Sunday!

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    Got to have babb on him, my only concern is the turnaround J from Thomas, he is great at that.

    Yeah he's like a larger version of Tyrus in that respect.

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    Thomas is far and away their best offensive player. He will need to be Babbed!

    This could really be Babb's opportunity to get some serious interest from NBA scouts as a defensive player . . . Thomas is clearly an NBA prospect.

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    Thomas is going to get his points. We must limit how much his teammates feed off of that.

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    Babb will not be guarding Thomas since he has some post game. Ejim would be a better fit -- Babb is a good defender but he wouldn't be at his best inside. Hopefully they don't go small cause then Niang gets a tough matchup.

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    Do we perhaps play Booker more in the OSU game? We don't want Melvin or Niang to get into foul trouble trying to guard Thomas, and Booker could take those fouls.

    The thing about Thomas is that he really doesn't draw that many fouls. He draws 4.3/40 which is nothing impressive for a guy that gets so much usage. He's a fantastic offensive player, he has a great jump shot, but he's not as aggressive as some. Booker played so well last night, he may have earned some more minutes though!

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    If Clyburn could play defense like he did last night, he could bother Thomas a lot.

    Dont get me wrong, I have been thrilled with his play at ISU. But NBA talented? I'll believe it when I see it, but the prospect is about as likely as Chris Colvin playing in the NBA.

    Re: DeShaun Thomas

    We have a few guys that can guard Thomas...the problem is how you match up with the rest of their team.
