    Best ISU Basketball Player Ever?

    Who is everone's choice as the best player to ever lace them up for the Cyclones? I have been thinking about it for a while and cannot decide between Gary Thompson, Fred Hoiberg, or Marcus Fizer.

    Jamaal Tinsley. No single player had a greater impact on winning than JT.

    Tinsley, without a doubt. Winning the close games makes the difference between good and great teams...he took over many close games and pulled out a W. Think about the 2000 season.

    Barry Stevens paved the way for success with Johhny.
    To me, that's what started Hilton Magic.

    Remember when Fizer was a freshman with the "sports glasses/goggles"?
    He sure matured while he was here, boy to man is an understatement.

    Re: Best ISU Basketball Player Ever?

    No Hornacek in the list? Maybe he wasn't such a power at Iowa State as some of these other players but he had a more than successful NBA career.
