    Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    Georges is listed as a First Team All-American by Jeff Goodman with ESPN.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-coll...ege-basketball

    (Insider Article)

    Listed as a First Team All-American with: Cliff Alexander (Kansas), Jahlil Okafor (Duke), Caris LeVert (Michigan), and Marcus Paige (UNC).

    Jeff Goodman said that Georges isn't a terrific athlete, but Niang does everything well. Can score, pass, and has a high basketball IQ. He will be the man for Hoiberg next season.

    Really hoping that Jeff is right. Hope that Niang steps up big with Kane and Ejim graduating.

    He is smart enough to understand what his role is next season. He has to be a leader and I know he will step up and do great things.

    Maybe I am drinking too much Koolaid, but I think he is going to win National Championship before he graduates.

    Maybe a little Kool-Aid, but its actually pretty realistic. He was close(ish) this year before the foot injury. We are a national championship CALIBER team with him at full health. I expect even more out of him next year.

    Iowa St is going to be a nightmare matchup for any teams next year, Niang, McKay, Hogue and Nader all could go off any night

    He needs to up the Rebounding. He does that he is an AA. 20-7-4 next year. Mark it down.


    “Urgency,” Rhoads said. “That’s exactly what I told our staff. It’s exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. That’s in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility — whether it’s a fit, whether it’s a tackle, whether it’s a route, whether it’s a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.”

    I saw the article and my first thought well of course he should be on that list. That is a testiment to Georges and how he played this year. I fully expect Georges to dominate next year.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I think he'll average around 20 pts a game. Having a legit 5 in McKay should really help him out on both sides of the ball.

    Cliff Alexander will not be an AA.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    Remember at the beginning of the season when some people thought Niang was having a sophomore slump? (The 4 points in the Auburn game before fouling out).

    He's going to be the man next year. This is his team now.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."
