    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.

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


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    His rebounding actually improved quite a bit toward the end of the season. Haven't crunched the numbers but I think he was around 5 per game. His defense and fouling also improved.

    just needs to convert more fat into muscle and increase his endurance. With more help in the middle, I think his outside shooting percentage should also improve.
