Niang tabbed as AP, NABC third-team All-American

 AMES — Iowa State star forward Georges Niang scooped up two more accolades this morning.

 First, the 6-8 junior from Methuen, Mass., was named a third-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. An hour later, the Associated Press did the same, placing him on their third-team All-America team.

 Niang averaged 15.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season. He was an all-Big 12 first-teamer and earned the Most Outstanding Player award at the Big 12 Tournament. 

 Niang is the fourth ISU player to earn All-America status under coach Fred Hoiberg
