    Niang Big 12 POTW

    Matt is going to light it up the next game. He's the only starter left to not be recognized by the Big 12!

    geez, this is a weekly thread anymore. I like it.

    He's doing this while struggling to find his range, he is going to have a huge year.

    Nice pic of Woodard carrying the ball.

    And another player (some guy named Kane) has won the newcomer award twice as icing on the cake. That is 5 of ISU's starting 6 () recognized by the league in 7 weeks (6 total awards).

    Now, all we need is Matt Thomas to step up and grab one sometime and we've got everyone accounted for. While I like Matt, it may take a while for him to get his confidence up enough for him to hit that level. We will see though. I also see it more likely that he grabs a newcomer of the week award over a player of the week award.

    Re: Niang Big 12 POTW

    Player of the Week? Try Player of the Year so far. I know there was some early worrying about maybe a sophomore slump, but Georges has been so amazingly clutch in both the Michigan, BYU and Iowa games. Plus he pretty much single-handedly kept the team going in the UNI game. I kind of laugh at his performance in the Auburn game because I think it's clear that he really performs best under pressure. Love that guy. And the statement during the post-game presser about it being a Cyclone State was the icing on the cake.

    I see no reason in the world that Matt cannot have a great tourney in Hawaii in front the President and his entourage. Why not?

    What was really the highlight was Hoiberg's response " Thanks George" I cracked up laughing

    He said, "Nice Georges - God." Hoiberg could care less on that one... but not much.

    Re: Niang Big 12 POTW

    Matt won't get any award like this for a while i think. Im sure all of you Matty Ice lovers hate me for sharing that. Hes more of a steady eddy. He doesn't shoot enough to score more then around 15 a game. 10-17 pts and 5 rebs isn't going to win any weekly awards. I would love to see him shoot more but he seems content to shot fake everything and pass it back around. I find myself begging him to shoot the damn ball.

    6 awards in 8 games. Wonder how many they'll have by the end of the season?

    Good for him. He's a helluva player and I'm glad to see him get the official recognition
