    Now I know we love all the players, at least I do, but there's always one that takes the rest. For me last year that was Chris Babb.

    Babb was the guy that was always there, always cool, intense, and worked his way into the 3 pointer sharpshooting game. No to mention his dominate defense. Even if that wasn't enough, he was able to work that little bit of edgy cockiness that I think every real competitor needs.

    This year my favorite is Monte. Solid. Solid. Solid. As a freshman this kid has tremendous upside. Barely turns the ball over, doesn't push it, keeps his passes crisp and safe, and steps up and hits the big shot. Did I mention good defense?

    With all the negativity running around on these boards, why not reflect on what we love about this team? Let the love and cool-aid drinking, begin.

    Kane is my favorite. He's a leader out there.

    Always find myself rooting for SDW and Edozie. They just don't play much :(

    Coming out of of left field with Percy. I think all the hate he gets from the fans makes me really want to cheer him on to make his haters eat crow. Between him and Melvin, our two longest-tenured Cyclones, you've got my favorite Cyclones.

    Definitely Niang. Those well-refined post moves are to die for.

    Melvin. Just consistently solid. I think getting Melvin back into the mix crashing the boards helped us out rebound Texas.

    Really like the 3 musketeers of Kane, Niang and Ejim… Love Hogue's hustle as well and Naz when he drops a few 3's in a row…Ah hell, I like all the players!!

    That's like picking a child. But since I have no children, I don't know what that's like. Georges.

    Kane and Niang. Our best players, and they're cocky about it.

    Kane's cockiness is his only downfall, IMO
