    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I've been thinking this for a long time, but he reminds me of a guy who played for Villanova in the 80's.

    Kind of a slower wide body that had some moves and could score.

    I couldn't remember his name and it's been nagging me for a while.

    I finally did some digging. John Pinone.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    I expect an 18.5, 5.5, 4.5 season out of Georges next year. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble now that he isn't going to play as an undersized center full-time.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    Could be. I felt like when he got hurt he was just starting to put it all together, the last piece in my mind was playing smart on defense. I felt he was doing a better job of playing straight up D and avoiding the stupid fouls.

    And Naz. And Monte. And whoever transfers in. And Matt. We are going to be lethal.

    I didn't think he was very focused in that game. Something happened with him and the guy he was guarding(don't remember what) and it seemed like he kept trying stick it to the guy the rest of the game.

    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.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    ISU could be a very respectable defensive team next year. Morris and Hogue are very good, McKay should at least be a good shot disrupter (don't know anything about his defense besides that), Niang is getting respectable. No idea on Nader but he certainly has the length to be good.

    Oh, and count me in for the 20, 5, 5 for Niang.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I love he's getting that respect. I hope he continues to improve as he already has. I think our system is such that we could have multiple stat stuffers..which is great! I do like that Georges can have the offense run through him and his leadership is off the charts..one of those guys that is probably already rallying the troops for next year.

    I could see him averaging about 18 points 5 rebounds and 5 assists next year.
