Iowa State’s big men are vital to success

Fans of Iowa State basketball can expect a 2014 squad full of shooters and guys who can play up-tempo. Those shooters will take Iowa State to the NCAA Tournament and possibly a Sweet 16 game.

I couldn’t sit here and write a sentence that would predict what was going to happen next in this mayhem, because everything we’ve expected has basically been false. I guess instead of telling you what you’re going to see in these next few days, I could go over what to watch. That seems more...

Iowa St. Cyclones must find way to win without injured star Niang

To face North Carolina when you’re healthy is tough enough, but to do it without Georges Niang? Stranger things have happened, I guess. They call this March Madness, right? We’re programmed to expect things like Mercer over Duke, but for the second year in a row, the foot area is Iowa State’s Achilles’ heel. With 7½ minutes remaining in the third-seeded Cyclones’ 93...

Iowa State star player breaks foot, is out for tournament

Unfortunately, things just got a lot more difficult for the Cyclones. While ISU was able to easily handle North Carolina Central in its second round matchup Friday night, sophomore forward Georges Niang injured his right foot...

Without Embiid to defend, Iowa State's Niang lights up Jayhawks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The easy thing to do would be to panic about Kansas' interior defense, the one that seemingly got exposed in the Jayhawks' 94-83 loss to Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals Friday night. The Cyclones, led by 6-foot-8 Georges Niang's 25 points and seven assists, seemed to reveal the Jayhawks for what they are -- a team desperately missing...

Niang comes into his own for Iowa State

Iowa State forward Georges Niang isn't very athletic. He just isn't. Yet the 6-foot-7 Niang has blossomed into one of the Big 12's better freshmen, helping the Cyclones get off to a good start this season. Niang is third on Iowa State in scoring at 11.5 points per game while hitting 52.5 percent of his shots. He was named the Big 12's Rookie of the Week on Monday...
