    Aaron White

    He played one hell of a game for Iowa tonight. I can't stand the guy, mainly because he is a major thorn in our side. But his play tonight was spectacular and I feel he deserves some recognition despite our rivalry. 25 points 17 rebounds. That is an impressive performance. Great win by the Cyclones, they toughed it out and were able to come away with a win. Kudos to White and the rest of the Hawkeyes on a great game. I think this rivalry is going to become very big. Iowa is a good team, and will have a very good year.

    At least we only see him one more year. They gotta deal with Niang 2 times.

    Re: Aaron White

    He's not really that talented... Just very quick for his size, sneaky, and a very heady player. Knows how to get positioning on opponents, find holes in the defense without the ball, and how to get open.

    Re: Aaron White

    He's a good player, especially in the open court. We let him get going by not matching their energy, and he was tremendous from there.

    Really understand his role, and what he can and can't do

    Yeah, that sounds like a player who isn't talented at all...

    That's more like Larry Bird. Obviously, White is nowhere near the Bird's level, but Bird was probably the best player in history at using craftiness to create opportunities for himself and his teammates. Neither player was/is unathletic, and Bird obviously has a HUGE edge in shooting ability. But White is very, very good at moving without the ball and finding holes in the defense to create easy opportunities. He gets so many of those easy dunks and layups for a reason.

    You are nuts. Did you just watch what he did against Iowa State tonight? He may not the most athletically gifted player, but he sure knows how to move around without the ball and makes good smart shots. I call that "talent".

    White impressed me. Woodbury, again, did not.

    Re: Aaron White

    He was by far the best player on the floor tonight, all around player anyway. That said, what a pathetic defensive effort on him, two years in a row. Just awful. You gotta know here he is and get a body on him. We have some major major holes to fill defensively.

    Same as the last couple years, oftentimes we just don't play hard enough, long enough defensively to be an elite team. time will tell if this team can.

    If Aaron White is not talented, then nobody on the court tonight is. He was taller than anybody on our team by 2-3" at all times and was destroying us in transition and blowing by our D all night. His outside shot is not very consistent and last year he had a couple games where he disappeared, but otherwise he's really good. Frankly I think Hogue is our only guy in the rotation that is as athletic.

    I can't stand the dude and the way he flails and flops to draw fouls, but all week CF posters keep talking about White as if he's Ellerman.

    Re: Aaron White

    We have to deal with the Ginger nightmare in another matchup?? Good grief. He's a GREAT player. Probably even NBA worthy. I don't care what anyone says.
