    Why is Kane the face of this team?

    I think he's a good player, and I totally respect what he does on the court, but I feel that Ejim or Niang should be the face of this team. As a fan, those are the two I think of right now when thinking of leaders and impact players. Nearly every time I see something about the Cyclones pop up on my feed it has a picture of Kane attached. I understood it when Royce got the publicity, maybe I'm just not seeing it with Kane.

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    graduated transfer, had one more shot at a tourney and he picked ISU. Interesting off-the-court story. Great 4 year stat line.

    I would agree that long-term Ejim or Niang is more the face of the team but without Kane we wouldn't be 11-0.

    Not many guys in America are as fully rounded as Kane!

    Because he's really really good

    Melvin's off-court story is one of the best there is; the epitome of student-athlete

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    He filled a huge hole in our lineup, and does everything. There are arguably four guys who take turns as the face of this team. It's certainly DeAndre's turn right now.

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    I'll agree with you.

    Take nothing away from Kane, as I love having him around. I would say that the fans, and people that "know" Iowa State Basketball would say it's Ejim's team. At the Michigan game, when I saw him out there warming up, and then when he came in off the bench, the place went absolutely nuts. People in the "know", know it's him.

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    After that "foul" got called on him against Boise St, he seemed to take it up a notch. It was almost Royce like, where he just decided he was the best player on the court and he was going to prove it.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.
    - Naz Long to Markel Brown before hitting the game tying shot.

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    How do you see him being the face of the team? I guess I don't see ISU athletics promoting him more than any of the others, and outside media does what it wants. He gets introduced last, but I think that is customary as forwards are introduced first.

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    Any 3 could be the face of the Cyclones at any single time. Hogue would at brief times, but we have 4 monsters on this time that seem to show up all the time and they all seem like great team players

    Re: Why is Kane the face of this team?

    The guy is a beast. His personal story is just way more intriguing than Ejims.
    His numbers are crazy
    Being point guard, he runs the show
    Last shot at a tourney run
    Gave his shoes to a homeless guy
    Story of his father
    Etc etc
    Ejim is just a great guy and excellent representative but not much further to talk about

    Kane is the best player on the team...on a team full of great players. Simple as that.

    Our entire team is like every player from the old "Arch Rivals" arcade basketball game, but especially Kane and Hogue...

    I'm not worried about it, but not every thread can be about how great we are. I was just making conversation.
