New highlights of Marvin


.......and the dunk at 56 seconds is ridiculous.

He is already a very skilled player. If he had a couple more inches, he would be a high major recruit for sure.

He may be 6'5 but he absolutly dominates the paint. I watched a bunch of his games that the state of Minnesota had archived from the post season. He owns the paint like he is 7'0.

Watching those highlights he can throw people around as well too. To me he has Luke's attitude and strength, Kwadzo-like build, and a good mid-range game. Assuming he plays to the potential I see him him he should win a Lary Bird Award sometime in his career.

06 is right. If he is 6'7 he is at Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue, Wisconsin, maybe Kansas or Missouri right now

I always thought he was a little taller which is why I couldn't believe we got him. 6'5 doesn't change my attitude about him though, I agree with 83 and I think he goes down in the annals of Panther history as one of the best this program has had, in recent years (which really says something), if not ever.

Maybe he grows like Scotty Pippen. If not, no biggie. Either way, still can't wait for next season!

Could we possibly have our next O'Rear Factor in Marvin? We could use another emotional leader like that. Honestly idk who that next guy is otherwise, AJ maybe?

Seems like he has the energy and size of O'Rear but MUCH more skilled than O'Rear. Don't get me wrong, I loved O'Rear, but Singleton is more athletic, better leaper, better shooter, more crafty offensively, etc. Just really no comparison, in my opinion, between the two when it comes to skill/upside.

Doesn't seem anything like AJ..

Very hard to compare him to anyone... he will be someone unlike we have had before.... closest, if we HAVE to compare, is probably coleman.. but Singleton seems to shoot better than Eric ever did.

I was comparing him only for that emotional aspect (the energy and hustle, doing the little things). I don't think anyone would try to argue that Singleton won't end being the more athletic basketball player. I was simply asking if anyone thinks that Singleton will be able to take up that role as an emotional leader because of those same attributes. If not, who do you guys think will be that leader.

I don't know if you're just talking big fellas, but in my mind energy and hustle goes to Moran. They guy is always diving and giving 110%. As the lone senior, he will be the leader this year.

Oh of course, but I was thinking more long term with the guys we have coming in. Johnny's the unquestioned leader this year and his motor never stops....I guess I was really vague on what I meant earlier. Sorry guys.

So I just took a quick look at the UNI athletic site and they have the updated roster for the basketball team and they have Marvin listed at 6'6" and 235 pounds! Just wondering what is hieght really is, I've seen it at 6'4", 6'5", and now 6'6"? The only reason I can see him red-shirting is to work on his offensive ability. Side note, they have Buss listed at 205 which means they put on about 20 on that kid, and it shows. He looks much bigger in the ptl highlights than he did coming out of high school. They had him listed at 190 which I think was a reach. But thats what you come to expect with a top notch weight facilities!

It is really hard to say who our vocal leader will be this year.... Last year O'Rear and Kwadzo took that on their shoulders and were GREAT about keeping the younger guys in check. They were not afraid to talk on and off the court and lead by example. We really don't have a vocal guy like that left on this team. I am not saying we won't have one, just not one that has surfaced yet. AJ is really quiet and more of a leader by example (which isn't bad at all!) but we will need a vocal leader to step up... Jake isn't that type of leader either. If anyone does, I picture it being Moran for this coming year. He is an emotional player and a senior that the younger guys will look up too.

In the future, I picture that leader being Tuttle. Other guys may step up, but seeing the guys on campus this summer, it seems they are all pretty reserved/quiet except for Tuttle. Just seeing him on campus this summer and the way he lead his HS team, I could see him becoming that type of guy. I'm not expecting that this year as he is still very young and needs time to mature, but if the older guys and coaching staff keep pushing him, he could become that guy.

Morrison. Kid has the demeanor of a leader. I keep comparing him to McKowen because they seemed to have the same demeanor on the court. No DOUBT Brooks was a great leader. I'm going to miss the frustrated eye rolls and neck snaps of Kwadzo when people were out of position.

I don't know much about Morrison... will he ever see the floor?

Morrison is an absolute winner and probably the toughest guy on the team. Won something like seven different high school state championships.

Not sure how many minutes he will get going forward, due to talent level, but every program needs a Matt Morrison to make everybody better every day in practice. The Brooks McKowen comparison is pretty accurate in terms of toughness. The program is just so far ahead of where it was four years ago...

Morrison is more of a Brian Haak, don't think he will see the floor much and as such won't be much of an on the court leader. I expect Moran will be that guy this year and next year I'd guess it could be Sonnen or Jake.

I don't see Jake ever being that vocal guy but could see Sonnen. He was pretty vocal at times during this past season. He is also fairly well known for being vocal with his teammates during practice and off the court. We'll see I guess.. no matter what, someone will step up and we will be just fine. These guys are extremely talented and great kids! Very excited to see the Panthers play the next few years!

From listening to Rima's show, and his interviews with coaches in the PTL, it sounds like Chip Rank may be the guy. His PTL coach is VERY impressed and really can't say enough good things about Chip.

Was just looking around and came across this article about Marvin. I knew his team won a lot of games but I had no idea that during his varsity campaign that they won 96% of thier games! Here is the link to the article.

Marvin Singleton is just such a perfect player for UNI. Versatile, tough, defensive minded. He is going to have a great career at UNI, IMO.

Couldn't of summed it up much better myself. What a great asset to this team, really the heart of this team in a way. Doesn't dazzle you with stats just does anything and everything to help the team.

I don't know but damn I wish he would have redshirted. He would have an even bigger impact next year.
