    You really think Fran will make it to the end of the game before assaulting one of his own players?

    If history repeats, I'm going to say there is a better chance a fan runs on the floor.

    I always preferred calling it Iowa's Finals Game 7. Nothing like playoff basketball in December.

    I love Niang, but Lester, Marble, and Armstrong.

    And when Marble was cocced up he was better than Jordan.

    I think you have to use a player that is more comparable in size/position. Ricky Davis comes to mind. But Georges > Ricky

    Mr Twins; I agree Niang was an incredible Cyclone - one of the best I've ever seen for my Cyclones.
    Lester was equivalent for Iowa and their Final 4 run.
    A little historical perspective is beneficial here: Lester played at Iowa before the Shot Clock was implemented at the Collegiate level. Lute Olson was notorious for going into a 4-corner stall for most of the game whenever Iowa had a lead. This is most certainly responsible for Lester's depressed scoring.

    New Mexico State went 30-5 last year -- a much better record than both of the high-major Iowa teams -- and won its conference/conference tournament before losing to Auburn (an eventual Final Four team) in the first round by one (78-77). Did they have a season that was as good or even better than Iowa and Iowa State's seasons last year?

    No. Duh.

    They were #49 on Bart Torvik and played in the WAC. They played two quadrant I-A games all season, and lost them both (to Kansas and Auburn).

    ISU had six quadrant I-A wins last year. Iowa had two.

    The quality of your schedule, your conference, your wins, and the quality of your games (e.g., being the only team to defeat eventual national runner-up Texas Tech in Lubbock last year) all count for something. You need more than just straight wins and losses.

    Yeah I get what you're saying and agree with you that Niang was better than Lester and any other player to wear that uniform
