    "Think Georges Niang's mindset, but in a point guard’s frame."

    If he can bring that to the table, watch out.

    I think the limit for the team next year will largely depend on how productive Morris can be as a freshman. If he can come in and play at the level that Niang did this year, I would see us making another trip to the tourney.

    Re: Monte Morris: A huge key to next season, will bring winner's mentality to Ames

    Great read, I am really excited about Morris! I was in East Lansing a couple weeks ago for work and had dinner at the house of a Michigan colleague whose husband is s local H.S. basketball coach. He couldn't stop talking about what a steal this was. He said he wished MSU had an open pg scholly for this class so they could have tried to keep him in michigan and said in his opinion the best recruit in the state and a future star he said he would take him any day over Lucious and thinks we will have an immediate upgrade. Granted he is an msu fan so doesn't have the best feelings about Korie and imo undervalued him. As a freshman I would be pleased if he is anywhere close to Korie as a senior.

    Let's hope he's good enough to be a 2 or 3 and done type player, but decides to stick around for 4 years!

    Yes, because getting to back to back final fours isn't good enough for him. He wants to win the whole damn thing.

    I am so pumped to see him in a Cyclone uniform. I've been eagerly awaiting Dorsey-Walker and can't wait to see the michigan backcourt (aka Michigan Madness) in full action. Along with Thomas, I really like the young talent that will be here. Next year may be a rebuilding year, but it will be a blast to watch.

    think our michigan backcourt will have a chip on their collective shoulders when the wolverines come into the house of pain?

    Not really, SDW had a Michigan offer, but signed with the good guys instead. I don't think a chip is the right word. Maybe a eagerness to play well against the home state.
