    High Praise for Kane

    I know Bleacher Report can be quite a joke and doesn't always represent the most reliable source, but they listed Deandre VERY HIGH on their BCS Conference Player Rankings so I thought I would share. However (having fun with wishful thinking of course), if his play represents anything close to that ranking... It'll be one heck of a year. For once I hope BR gets something right. Haha.

    Ejim and Niang are also both ranked on the list.

    Kane: #7
    Ejim: #71
    Niang: #112

    P.S. FWIW the report also lists Marble, White, and Gesell for Iowa. Just not as high as our guys :)

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Keep in mind these aren't necessarily the best players in order but his fantasy picks....meaning they will fill the stat sheet.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Holy smokes 6 months ago I never heard of Kane. Then I wondered if he was good enough to start. Now we have a writer giving his top 200 players and Kane is listed as #7. This guy thinks Kane is better than Ejim? Things are getting pretty interesting around here!

    Yeah I wouldn't take much confidence in the report. Like psycln11 said, it's based on 'fantasy' value. But, I still found it pretty interesting that anyone would predict Deandre anywhere that high. Can't be a bad thing. Here's hoping to a great year.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's better than Ejim. I would be surprised if he's the 7th best player from a major conference and the 3rd best player in the Big 12. In saying that I hope they are right. While I'd be surprised if he's that good I do think it is a possibility.

    He looked good in that first game. The guy works all the time.

    I have to admit, a player passes up Iowa State and goes and plays for Roy Williams, he gets on my, (I don't give a **** about him list.) So I don't even know how that guy plays. And I don't really care. That is just me.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    It's fantasy basketball. That's why DeAndre is so high. He has triple double potential. It's also why Gary Harris is so low.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Will be interesting to see Kane over a longer period of time vs. big time competition before I go nutty on him. Like what I've seen so far, but I would think we'll be needing him to show some improved outside shooting ability. Not sure that's going to be a part of his game.

    I cant wait For Melvin to get back, these guys are going to torment the opposition.....big guys are going to be to slow to guard them and the smaller guys are going to be overpowered. Fred take us to the final four soon.....cant wait.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Kind if makes sense if it's for fantasy basketball. Jabari Parker at 11 is kind of a joke. I think he might be better than wiggins this year. It's crazy to think that wiggins should be going into his senior year in highschool
