    Re: Georges Niang in 2014-2015

    I'm excited to see: Wooden Award race
    ESPN - By Myron Medcalf
    http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebaske...den-award-race


    Medcalf's Top Wooden Award contenders (returning players)

    1. Frank Kaminsky -- Wisconsin star is one of the toughest players to defend due to his size and range and he’s back for another run.
    2. Montrezl Harrell -- Louisville center is bigger, stronger and faster even though he was bigger, stronger and faster than everyone last year.
    3. Marcus Paige -- Averaged 17.5 PPG and 4.2 APG for North Carolina last season but he’ll have more help and the potential for a more productive year.
    4. Fred Van Vleet (or Ron Baker) -- Wichita State’s point guard finished fourth nationally with a 4.02 assist-to-turnover ratio, and he’ll take on a bigger scoring role this year. But Baker, a future pro wing, could ultimately represent Wichita State in the Wooden Award mix.
    5. Branden Dawson -- Tom Izzo’s team will be built around the sturdy, skilled 6-foot-6 forward who was a McDonald’s All-American before injuries interrupted his progress.
    6. Georges Niang -- Iowa State power forward excels with an IQ and arsenal that few bigs can match and he’s healthy again after suffering a foot injury during last year’s Big 12 tournament.
    7. Andrew Harrison -- Kentucky point guard will lead the deepest frontcourt in the country and most talented roster in America.
    8. Ryan Boatright – Had 14 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in win over Kentucky in national title game and now, UConn is his squad.
    9. Chasson Randle -- The Stanford guard averaged 18.7 PPG and shot 39 percent from the 3-point line for a Cardinal team that reached the Sweet 16 last season.
    10. Juwan Staten -- If you haven’t heard of Staten (18.1 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 5.8 APG, 40 percent from the 3-point line for West Virginia last year), you will. Soon.



    Medcalf slipped up on saying Niang injured his foot in the Big 12 tournament but this list of players Niang is with is pretty elite for college basketball returners. The recognition just keeps coming for him this summer. Is it basketball season yet?

    We don't have to boycott Medcalf for this misinformation, do we? He's one of the good ones.

    Boycott, no, but how hard it is to fact check a little bit? Surely ESPN has interns.

    The interns probably supplied the facts.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    That makes our win over Baylor and NC-whatsitcalled even more impressive.
