    Just off the top of my head, Monte's 30 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and zero turnovers on 10-16 from floor and 4-5 from 3 is the best line I've seen from a Cyclone PG.

    Some other contenders: Tinsley vs UCLA in Sweet 16, 2000. Tinsley triple double vs Mizzou in 2000. Stinson @ KU, 2005. Garrett @KSU 2010. Kane vs Baylor 2014, Kane vs UNC in NCAA Tournament. Morris vs. KU last year. I'm probably forgetting some.

    But tonight may top them all. Your thoughts?

    Who is the best PG in the conference, Morris or Mason?

    Hard to beat the Sweet 16 Tinsley game given the stage.

    the 4 steals are the stat that really pops out at me. zero turnovers is the next most impressive.

    Don't know the stat lines, but Hornacek played a vital role against Miami and Michigan to get us to the Sweet 16. I think it was 1986.

    Good call. 15 points and the game winner.

    Man I'm going to miss Monte next year. With what you put up there it reminds me how fortunate we have been with some of our guards.

    That's tough... I don't think there's a "wrong" answer at this point in the season as both are really, really good.

    You are telling me Cory Mcintosh doesn't have a game that compares to Montes game tonight? I find that hard to believe Blum.

    Some really great performances. Hard to say which one was best.

    He was rated as a 5 star by this site, so he's gotta be up there.

    Hard to pick THEE best but, damn, one of the best for sure. The clutch threes and that sweet pass to Thomas had me up out of my living room comfy chair!

    Stinson had some great games stat wise. Not always in a big stage.

    I remember Kane having an amazing performance when he went up against Marcus Smart down in Stillwater.

    His stats were 29 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists with 1 steal and only 2 turnovers!

    He also passed up a potential game winning shot to Naz, who famously nailed the 3 pointer to break the curse at Gallagher-Iba. Kane is still one of my all time favorite players.

    Edit: I guess I should add Kane had 3 overtimes to stuff his stat sheet, still impressive though.

    Even I was young when Hercle Ivy played. Was he a shooting guard or a PG? He really could stuff a stat sheet though. Kind of wonder how he would have done in the three point era.

    I know Hornacek went off for a bunch of assists against Iowa one year but I can't remember if he scored much that game.

    That's yet to be determined but Mason is smoke'n. Has Mason been contained in any game this year?
