Re: Cyclones are the #13 most beautiful team in the tourney
Niang isn't exactly a point-forward. Yet.
13. Iowa State: We all love eccentric offensive schemes (provided it doesn't take things too far: we're looking at you, Grinnell) and when Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg decided to use 6-foot-7 point-forward Georges Niang in the role vacated by Royce White, the end result was one of the 10 most efficient offenses in the country. The Cyclones score in droves, defend only in scattered spurts, and get out and run -- save trading for former North Carolina guard Ty Lawson, you couldn't nail the recipe for thrilling games any better.
