    If this holds until the end of the season I would like to see his number in the rafters.

    Very cool. I think Kane gets the newcomer of the year honor though as Black won't put up big numbers with all those guys around him.

    Good for Ejim.

    And I'd take Niang over Austin any day. That pick is based of his recruiting rank and height, not his play.

    I don't think that's enough but would be interested in reviewing his stats at the end of the year and see how they stack up. We love him because he's a 4 year player but there were decades where that was the norm.

    He's certainly accomplished a lot and may very well be deserving but my knee jerk reaction is that it should take "more" to get in the rafters.

    Deep tourney run and put him up there. He's everything you'd want in a Clone.

    Re: Melvin is Pre-Season First Team All Big 12

    Niang should be second team. By the end of the year, I'd bet Niang, Ejim, and Kane all make one of the top 3 all conference teams.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.
