    He is now a Legend in cardinal and gold.
    Way to go Georges. Thanks for taking that late charge to help seal the deal.
    I have a snapshot of the still frame but cant get it posted from my mobile phone. I'll get it uploaded soon.

    Don't need to see it again, but what a great effort by Georges!

    Niang was just a beast tonight. I was really worried when I saw all of that blood, but when he was walking off of the court and gave that fist pump (would have made Johnny Orr proud) I knew he'd be okay. At that very moment, Niang moved into the category of 'legendary' Cyclone as far as I'm concerned. That was a one-armed Jake Knott vs. Baylor performance right there.

    He's probably talking to his teammate in that picture.
    He seemed pretty calm about it all.

    The look on his face there isn't due to the sight of blood. When you watch this frame in the video he is squinting and opening his eyes to attempt to clear the blood out of his right eye. Picture happened to be taken at the right time.


    Watching this go down, one thing that impressed me was how Kane refused to leave his side, even after you can hear one official directing Kane to the ISU bench. Shows you the brotherhood that this team shares. Definitely is a special group of guys.

    Knowing the type of person Georges is I half expected ketchup packets in his hand.

    Georges was tearing KS apart. Then elbow is brought down hard putting him out of game. Five stitches. Not even looked at on video for flagrant 2. Amazing.

    The guy must have gotten an A in Geometry because I cannot understand how he can find the right angles to bank his shot in off the backboard to get in the basket. He amazes me every single time.

    C'mon, guy. No way it was intentional. Don't give bitter KU fans any ammo.

    It shouldn't have been a flagrant but it deserved it 10x more than the one they called on Ejim rolling on the ground with KSU @Hilton this year. I couldn't even see that one on the slow-mo replay. Some ridiculous flagrant fouls called this year all around college hoops.
