    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    It's his year and team. Amazing how far he has come since being a freshman.

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    Ejim always had the talent, but now our team is different-no Babb or Clyburn- so this is the perfect timing for his Sr. Year to showcase how good he really is. I like to see us kill it at the post when the tres aren't there as much. Writing 'Melvin' all over my notebooks.

    I agree. Last year's team had better scorers, but this year's team has MUCH better defense, chemistry, and toughness IMO. Oh, and I think we're a much better rebounding team too.

    If Matty Ice can get going, we'll be deadly. I was surprised that Morris looked somewhat nervous and pressed a little too much because he hasn't done that yet, but this was a HUGE game for him playing against his home state team. He was definitely trying too hard instead of letting the game come to him. He will be better for having played in this game.

    Melvin should have his name and number on a banner from the rafters in the future. I don't see any argument to that. Stevens, Grayer, Hornacek, Hoiberg, Ejim. He is absolutely at that level.

    The nice thing about this team is that neither Monte or Matt have to be "the" guy. We have three that can, and the rest of the guys can play roles and get comfortable.

    His first play today is a perfect summary of his ISU career. Thanks Melvin!

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    Had his fist touch after beig injured been a put back dunk and/or if he would have got that reverse oop, this thread would need more stars.

    I've said it many times, Melvin is one of the all time best.

    Melvin has been fun to watch develop into an All Big 12 caliber player. Testament to his work ethic, and talent.

    Agree...this may be controversial, but more worthy than Tinsley or Fizer IMO.

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    He's been my favorite player for quite some time and it's not just because he's a great player. He's a great student, a great leader and by all accounts just a great person in general. What a great ambassador for ISU! He has a lot of the traits his coach had when he played for ISU......

    Re: *** Ejim Appreciation Thread ***

    Absolute stud and incredibly underrated nationally. He's always been a team guy, and it's obvious how hard he's worked to become one of the elite players in the league.

    And if anyone thinks he's content to let this be a rebuilding year, think again. Based on his post game comments, I don't think you can overstate just how much drive he has to go out with a bang.

    There have been many players I have hated to see graduate over the years. Melvin will be very near the top when that day happens.
