    Thoughts on Matt Thomas

    He's going to be that guy that his junior year that every school we play is going to say "how long has he played at ISU!?!?!"

    Reminds me of Keiton Page, but taller. Not necessarily 100% on all the time, but when he's in his groove, he can't be stopped, no matter who you put in front of him.

    I know, it's just been one game. But after he hit his first three tonight, there was about a 5-10 minute stretch where he could do no wrong. He drilled a second three, goes back, gets a huge steal, then a few minutes later drills a three from Boone County.

    Monte and Kane both said playing in front of Hilton made them a little nervous, which explains the slow start for all our noobs.

    Re: Thoughts on Matt Thomas

    There's a reason he was a top 60 recruit. I don't think his game will be like Page because he will be able to do more offensively. But yeah, like Page fans will be wondering when his eligibility is up

    Re: Thoughts on Matt Thomas

    He's awesome. Will average double figures this year in all likelihood. Really looks like a natural scorer with a pretty good midrange game as well. He just seems to be able to fill it up so effortlessly.

    If he turned out as good at Gatens I'd probably be pretty ok with that. As long as he was that good sooner than later.

    I think he has potential to be as good as Gatens was in his SR year, in his (Thomas's) SO year.

    Agreed. He already has a better midrange game than Gatens did when he was a freshman IMO.

    This is what top 50 talent looks like as a freshman. Monte and Matt (Niang too) are going to have solid entries in the record books at ISU when they are done in Ames.

    Imagine if we had him, niang, morris, and rashad on a team. Would be pretty damn solid. Especially if Vaughn stayed for two or three years.

    Re: Thoughts on Matt Thomas

    I thought Thomas looked really good in the 2nd half. Really good. That said, if he is better than SR year Matt Gatens by next season, he will be all conference as a SO. Gatens averaged 15+ ppg his senior year, and there may not have been a more unconscious player in the country the last month of his career. I think he averaged 22 ppg over that last month.

    Just saying.

    Hopefully they aren't too nervous for that Michigan game. Hilton is really going to be rocking.
