    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    With all the guys who can score, I have trouble seeing Georges achieve an honor like this unless he is able to either up the rebounding or have a simply incredible year distributing the ball. Georges is a great offensive threat, but he is unfortunately a team where multiple guys can go off any given night.

    I will almost guarantee Georges will be the #1 option next year. Especially having a pg like Monte who is pass first, which I don't really think has happened in the entire time Hoiberg has been coaching here unless you count Lucious into that mold.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I'll mark him down tentatively for 19, 6, and 5.

    We have so many weapons next year. As you've already covered; Niang, Hogue, McKay, Nader.. all of these guys could go off on any given night. Matt should make some good improvements this offseason. I have a feeling he'll rid himself of the hesitation and provide us with a very steady deep threat. Naz will continue to do Nazty things. Threesus saves. SDW can hopefully make some improvements as well. He's got huge potential. Edozie can give us good minutes down low to at least provide our guys with a quick breather, if we're in a little foul trouble, or if we just need him to go bruise. In all likelihood, Hoiball will land some sort of immediately eligible transfer that makes an impact.

    Oh, and I haven't even mentioned some guy by the name of Morris yet. I really think that he is going to turn into a star next year. We all know what he brings to the table, and the media started to catch on towards the end.. but with all of these weapons, he will be the true facilitator. I think he'll break his own A:TO mark, while averaging about 8-10 points a game, and making numerous SportsCenter top-10 passes.

    Kool-aid tastes good.

    Since we're slapping random numbers on Georges, I want to see 20, 10 and 10. Mark it down.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    Let's keep in mind, since the 97-98 season, only 6 people have averaged 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. I'm not saying Georges can't do it but it's a very difficult task to achieve.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I feel that Niang stepped up quite a bit already this year as a leader. We had many games where ISU was out of sorts and Hoiberg put the ball in Niangs hands to get a "sure" basket. Also, he has already welcomed the leader role as well I believe.

    25-10-10. Bet the farm.

    Also, Naz and MT are sharp-shooters, but Monte looked pretty damn good shooting the 3-ball himself. I think he's going to be the biggest surprise of all next year. He's going to be one of the main options.

    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    Sounds like Georges has been putting in work. Not that I thought his conditioning was an issue last year, but imagine if he gains just an extra half step of quickness.
    Big 12 your on notice.

    Heard Iowa State's Georges Niang is down 15-20 pounds since the end of the season. Should be a first-team All-Big 12 player in 14-15.

    How much did he lose between his Freshman and Sophomore seasons?
