    Call me skeptical but we heard this about Mel from his freshman year onward. Beyond being able to get more rest and not having to play through foul trouble, I don't see there being much difference in how Fred uses The Closer.

    It's much easier to lay around and eat with a broken foot than a healthy foot.

    This was exactly what I was worried about when he broke his foot. Good to see him drop some pounds though.

    Yeah, I put Hogue in at first when I wrote that then took him out cause it felt like I was just listing most of the team. Hogue and Niang would be my two bets for most likely to repeat last year's stats among main guys. I bet Niang's %'s go up and his counting stats remain similar.

    I'm counting anyone who hasn't played in the Big 12 for Iowa State as somewhat of an unknown. Some (Custer, GT) more than others (BDJ, Nader), of course.

    @TravisHines21: Georges Niang (foot) will miss the first 2 weeks of the Capital City League as a precaution, ISU spokesperson tells Ames Trib.

    @TravisHines21: Niang, though, is still on target to participate in the Nike big man camp later this month. Then will play in summer league.

    That's good. I'd much rather they be cautious with it.
