    *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    I stepped away for a bit to eat. Seriously how does this thread not already exist.

    Melvin last year was great but based on this game he's really stepped it up. Amazing game and probably not 100%.

    In ISU history this was the equivalent of Willis Reed playing in MSG.

    This has the potential to be a very special team. He has some help now with the rebounding with Hogue, Niang, and Kane. If the outside shooting can just pick up a little bit...could be a very good year.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    The talk about his improved ball handling was absolutely 100% true. Guy can do it all.

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    He may be the best leader we have had at ISU in years. No way in years past ISU wins this game based on chemistry issues and too many guys wanting to be "the man" at this point. Thought some players were pressing too hard to start today and Ejim came in and suddenly everyone knew their role and ISU got it going. Going to be a fun ride for him this year I hope!

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    I don't know if "appreciation" is a strong enough word.

    Maybe "admiration." Maybe something stronger?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    This x1000! I expected him to be rusty - but he was, in my estimation the best player on the floor (with NS of Mich a close second). I am so glad we had him today - I agree with another poster, we do not win this without him!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    He's too small. We need more big guys.

    Exactly. Could you imagine Dickie V. praising his "hands" based on how troubled he was holding on to the ball as a frosh? Love his drive and enthusiasm. And skills.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Melvin cemented himself as a cyclone legend tonight. He was the best player on the court with 1.5 legs. Much love to Melvin tonight for repetrsenting the cyclones well.

    Best thread of the night

    Whenever I hear anyone talking about a player as if what he is is what he always will be, I will have a one word answer.

    Melvin. He's added new dimensions every year.
