    That is a very well rounded player. I wonder if there are many better in the country right now?
    I knew he would be a contributor, but with the way he is playing and driving the ball, Kane reminds me of a Stinson level PG/SG, maybe better with his size.

    He brings a level of toughness that has been missing. He believes the rebound is his and that nobody can stop him if he wants or needs to score. This was a very good pick up by Hoiball.

    I doubt there are any that are putting up better number across the board.

    Napier from UCONN is putting good numbers.

    Wow what a player, I had high expectations and he's exceeding them.

    This. We haven't had this level of toughness under Fred.

    Might be the toughest guy we've had certainly since Curtis Stinson, if not Tinsley.

    Hogue brings the toughness as well. Along with some from Ej. It seems like the rest of the team feeds off of it. Love that the team as a little 'tude.

    He's almost indefensible with the new rules. He is either going to get to the hoop with a high percentage shot, or get fouled.

    We really have 3 very high level players on this team now and 3 different guys we can go to at crunch time with Kane, Mel and Niang. Makes us tough at the end of games even with foul trouble and a luxury many teams don't have.

    Reminds me of Marcus Smart toughness.

    He's the X factor we needed this year. We're tougher than probably every team in the country because of him and Ejim.

    The match up between him and smart should be very good.

    Regardless of outcome - Kane vs Smart twice this season will be a blast to watch.

    Wasn't it his previous fg% that had so many worried about how good he'd be here? Hoiball takes effect again!

    Only Fred, Stinson, and Royce have finished with a similar stat line that he's on pace to achieve.

    Just the people who don't understand your percentage goes down when you're the only good player on a team were worried.

    A statistic I also like for a point guard: He's 29 of 47 FG, 20 of 28 FT. Good balance of attempts from field and line. High field goal percentage suggests high-percentage shots (and not resorting to a lot of chucking) and drawing fouls, so he's penetrating (or a threat to penetrate).

    Not sure how his graduated status makes him any different in this regard to the other players. He's still going to school just taking graduate classes.

    Could you imagine Royce playing with the new rules? O_O
