Ep. 28: Iowa State coach Steve Prohm

With the 50th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Pacers selected forward Georges Niang from Iowa State University. He’s a four-year player with a coach-like mentality for the game.

In his first year as Iowa State head coach, Prohm guided the Cyclones to a 23-12 record and Sweet Sixteen appearance.

On this special episode of the Vigilant Sports Pacers Podcast, Iowa State University head basketball coach Steve Prohm joins to discuss Prohm’s game and his potential in the best league in the world.

“I don’t think he could go to a better place,” Prohm said on the podcast.

Standing 6-8 and weighing in at 231, Niang is a versatile player with quality shot. The Pacers hope he can play the spread four position that they’ve needed for quite some time.

In his senior season at ISU, Niang averaged 20.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game. He is a Iowa State’s all-time winningest player, a two-time All-American, and the recipient of the Karl Malone Award given to the nation’s top post player.
