Considering the production Clyburn was touted as being able to provide ISU this year versus what we saw in the exhibition game I would take Niang as the best player meaning Clyburn is likely a disappointment.
Maybe I didn't phrase that very clearly. If Niang was indeed ISU's best player, knowing how Clyburn played in the exhibition game I would think that Clyburn - who we already know can be a capable scorer and who Fred challenged to lead the league in rebounding - might not be all we had hoped at this point.
It's all pretty silly because I highly doubt Georges is the team's best player. He certainly is solid for a freshman, however.
"There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
Why is it a bad thing that a freshman is our best player? It's like people are scared of getting good recruits. If Fred somehow gets Vaughn, I bet he's our best player his freshman year as well. Just because a freshman is your best player, doesn't mean the rest of your team sucks.
This. The national champs' best player was a true freshman last year.
