I wouldn't be surprised if he has a down year in stats even though he should be a better player. We will have more height and talent in the SF/PF/C position next year. He could lose minutes or shots/game.
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.
"There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
With McKay, Edozie's potential development, plus 7-footer that can give you some spot minutes, maybe they're thinking Georges will be on the floor with McKay a fair amount, which could have him defending the 4 more.
Don't forget Hogue. I hope that guy can keep playing like he did in New York
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.
