Tony Carr is very good but I'm less concerned with him and more concerned with Lamar Stevens.  Stevens is averaging over 20 PPG and close to 5 boards over the last three Big 10 games.  Shooting 64% from the field.  I'd imagine Roby and Cope will be handling him.  Hopefully they can do so without fouling. 

 

Yup. Those two take the lionshare of the shots the same way that Shields/Petteway did that year after the tourney.

Copeland has been pretty good about defending without picking up fouls most of the year.

Penn State fans don't think we'll miss Jordy too much.  https://forum.pennstatehoops.com/t/game-day-was-nebraska-7-pm-friday-btn/5303/8

 

"We’re favored by 7… If Josh is out, take the points. He’s EASILY been the most valuable player on this team this season. He’s worth around 6.5 points to this team, more than any Penn State player in the past decade. Best ball handler, best passer, best offensive rebounder, best perimeter defender. If this academic issue is more serious than what has been let on and he’s out, we are finished and will be very lucky to win 5 or 6 games in Big Ten.

 

Tshimanga is terrible so his loss really don’t mean much. He was a foul eater that played 15 minutes a game, 6’11 and could barely block a shot, and couldn’t make a layup. I wouldn’t take him over Jordan Dickerson. He’s been not much more than a traffic cone defensively, and nearly useless on offense for Nebraska. His backup, Duby Okeke, should get an uptick in minutes and he’s way better defensively than Tshimanga.

 

This game will swing on whether Reaves plays or not. If he plays, we should win, maybe with ease. If he’s out, this is a coin flip. The Roman boys will need to step up for 40 minutes."

Dicks, they could have done without the disparaging remarks.  ;)
