    Guy was a beast last night. Probably won the game for us with his play overall. Has been spectacular the last few games. Puts on his hard hat and goes to work.

    I can't really think of anything bad I could say about this young man.

    His development has been awesome! He is an all around player besides is dribbling, which has improved immensely.

    We go as Melvin goes, and he always goes well.

    He is the key to this team. I love watching him play.

    I said he would be a beast after the end of our last season, but I had no idea that he would be our MVP. Mel is the man.

    In his first year he was easily the 2nd best thing next to DG. The guy will never be a show stopper visually but the box scores don't lie. The guy had so amazing offensive rebounds last night to keep us going.

    He's like Rodman mixed with the classiness of The Admiral haha

    Among my favorites of all time. Reminds of Rhashon Clark - not in his game, but the fact that he'll be a four-year player, works his butt off every time on the floor and never looks to applaud himself.

    Agree he is the team MVP so far and I love the way he goes about his business! A Great Cyclone!

    Given your avatar, you of all people should know that you can't hold someone's nationality against them.

    Clyburn also deserves a huge shout out... he's taken a lot of flack around here when he's bringing the ball up the court, but the way he set up Niang for the easy bucket last night was awesome.

    Clyburn still scares the crap out of me when he is handling the ball, but kudos to him for making the biggest play when it mattered.

    Anyone else get really nervous when you see Ejim running to set a ball screen? Especially when he really leans in and lays in on someone. One of these days he'll get caught or even get hit with a Technical. That's one thing he should work on. When WV made their run and he layed out that guy, that could have easily been a foul on us and we probably dont' win that game and Ejim fouls out even earlier...just makes me worried is all.

    He does it nearly every time and has for as long as I can remember. Later in the game he leaned hard for contact and the guy went around him without a touch and it looked quite funny...busted.

    I'm stunned that he isn't called more on it. Maybe because he's almost never moving his feet.
