    Hogue

    IMO, he'll be our "x factor" all year. Plays with so much enthusiasm - he's such a great spark for this team. Has an Ejim "glue guy" (ha) type of play to him.

    I think with the way Niang struggled most of the game, it actually worked in our favor he picked up that 4th foul early in the 2nd half - causing Hogue to be on the floor so long.

    An extremely fun player to watch and his skillset is much needed on this team.

    Re: Hogue

    Definitely has a lunch pale mentality, and is just steady as a rock. Very happy to have Dustin on board, as he is a difference maker.

    Re: Hogue

    He is much much much better on the offensive end than I expected him to be. And really an Ejim-level rebounder.

    He never played close to 37 minutes in a game at Indian Hills, but he didn't look winded at all at the end. He seemed to have just as much energy at the end of the game as he did at the beginning. He seemed to get his hands on every rebound in the last couple minutes.

    Re: Hogue

    He finds so many ways to contribute that every minute he's out there is a good one.


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

    Re: Hogue

    He's a very good all around player. I also didn't except him to be this good on the offensive side. He will be very effective for us this season in all phases of the game.

    Re: Hogue

    Did I hear the TV guy correctly that Dustin has a brother that's a LB for the Panthers?

    A linebackers mentality therefore.

    Re: Hogue

    I think it was Rothstein that tweeted that Hogue would be a very similar player to Travis Releford. This indeed appears to be correct. He's definitely impressed me.

    He's a good defender/rebounder, which maybe isn't surprising, but he's also a pretty capable player offensively.

    Re: Hogue

    He has a nice touch around the basket and is good with his left hand. Athletic as sin and a big time motor.

    That's a good comparison.

    Re: Hogue

    Pretty eye opening yesterday.....our front court out muscled Big Blue (not in stats/in appearance). Hogue, Kane and Ejim will be tough on the boards all year...

    One factor on that is that once again our frontcourt forced the other team to go small the whole game. Horford and Morgan combined to play just 18 minutes with 4 points and 5 boards (and 3 fouls). It's really hard to play traditional bigs against our lineup.

    Re: Hogue

    Hogue is a boss. I am giddy at the idea of having him, Ejim and Kane on the floor at the same time. Great defense and great rebounding.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Hogue

    To me, he is pretty much like having Ejim part deuce out there. Their playing style/body type are very similar, only Hogue just isn't quite to Ejim's level yet. To me, I compare Hogue more right now to the level Ejim was at a couple years ago. All said and done, there is nothing wrong with that. I'll take Sophmore Ejim any day of the week to compliment Senior Ejim.
