Iowa State Basketball: Georges Niang Sheds Weight in Offseason (PHOTO)
Iowa State forward Georges Niang’s sophomore season came to an unfortunate end last year after he broke his foot in the NCAA Tournament.
But the Cyclones star did more this summer than just rehab his foot.
Niang shed some considerable weight, down about 25 pounds from the 255 at which he was listed last season. The side-by-side he posted on Instagram leaves nothing to the imagination.
The third-team All-Big 12 forward’s transformation echoes that of UNC’s Kennedy Meeks, who Niang’s Cyclones defeated en route to their Sweet 16 berth. Niang is banking on his new physique pushing the reigning Big 12 champs even further in 2015.
