    Kid played his heart out, he never once quit. Beyond disappointed with Clyburn and Lucious, they were absolutely pathetic.

    Niang is the future of this program, along with Ejim. Think Ejim got abused tonight but he was put in a lot of bad spots due to poor defensive switches from Clyburn.

    Thank you Georges.

    Him and Ejim were very solid tonight. Glad we have them back again next year.

    Not sure Lucious can be blamed. He's just in a slump. At a bad time, unfortunately. But it could be worse- he could be in a slump in the NCAA!

    Or, be a hero.

    couldn't agree more. I just wish we could get the same Clyburn every game..its very frustrating. Glad the guys will have a week to think things over and prepare.

    He always plays his *** off, and is wise beyond his years. Glad we got 3 more years of him. He and Ejim will be the leaders next year, and Niang will be the leader of our team the two years after that. There's some relief in knowing that.

    We need Korie to make a run in the dance. As goes Korie and Will so goes ISU.

    Niang will be the greatly needed leader of this team next year.

    Niang is limited but nobody can deny his warrior-ness. Wouldn't want him anywhere else but on the floor. Proud of him and can't wait to watch how this program develops over the next couple of season.

    Georges probably showed he most energy out there tonight. Most of the team played flat, and our seniors need to play like it's their last game in the first round of he NCAAs. It will if the defense looks like it did tonight.

    If he can learn to play D without fouling. <- and no I don't know the answer to how he can as I don't see him fouling, but it KEEPS getting called over and over.

    No need to trash one player (or two) while praising another. Georges did have a really good game, I agree.

    Lucious is 99.99% to blame for he loss. Niang is a straight up baller. Can't wait to see him get better next year.

    Georges was solid! He will be a great player for us in the future. No doubt!

    When you disappear like he does, i don't feel bad at all. He's done it all year.

    I agree. It doesn't really make any sense to completely bag on him after he is the reason we survived yesterday.
