#HateWillNeverWin

 

That was largely a fun game.

  • The video before the game was pretty well done. I thought it set the right tone. Crowd seemed fully supportive. Loved to see that.
  • I thought the energy and focus they came out with to start the game was as good as it had been all year. I think, for at least that moment, they were as unified a group as they've been in a while.
  • It's really difficult to sustain that level of energy throughout, however, so as great as that 22-4 start was, they probably over exerted a bit. They basically held them at arms length the rest of the night.
  • Roby finally landed the monster slam! The place came unglued. I probably was more reserved than I should have been, I just assumed he'd get one of those eventually.
  • Frankly, we did some dynamic things that I haven't seen from a Nebrasketball team in a really long time. Those first 10 minutes of the game were a ton of fun.
  • We're really hot or cold from 3, huh? We had a couple of wide open looks that if we hit them, break the game wiiiiiiide open.
  • Loved the spark Duby gave us. He only played a handful of minutes, but the ones he did play were impactful.
  • James got smacked in the face early in the game. Never really seemed himself.
  • Thought Glynn was really good today, too. His stat line may not fully reflect that.
  • That was Roby's first double-double since the season opener. Also the first time he's scored in double figures in back-to-back games since the first two games of the year. Man, he was good today.
  • Jordy did some nice things. He's getting better around the rim, but if he puts the ball on the floor at all, he's toast. Also, he needs to get some stick 'em on those paws. I like the effort he brought today, though. Thought he was really disruptive on defense for the Rutgers drivers.
  • That was our third sweep of the season. We've got a chance for one more. And if not for letting one slip vs. PSU, we could have been in position to sweep all of our double plays.
  • I honestly never really expected to see an NU team sit at 10-4 in conference play. This is a blast. Let's keep this thing rolling!
  • Thought the crowd was mostly good. I expect it to be great on Tuesday. Le't see if we can sell it out again!

 

That's all I've got for now.

I want to keep Michigan right where they're at. With their schedule down the stretch, I think they'll pick up at least one more, though.

That's what good teams do to bad teams. The Roby dunk in the 1st Half looked like Dr. J from his ABA days...

That's funny.  When he threw it down, I said to my friend, "That looked like Julius Erving."  He said, "Yep."  Chuck is not one for a lot of words.....

It would nice to have a little more cushion is all I'm thinking. I know we have the tie breaker but one more loss would hurt.

We have a two game lead on Michigan with 4 left.  I'm of the mindset now that I'd like to see Michigan win out to possibly get into the RPI top 30 so we get that Tier 1 win and also to have them clinch the 5 seed.  Penn St. scares the hell out of me and we just match up well with Michigan.

Nice win, #19 feels great. No room for error, and I think it should've been 20 instead of 12, which might've helped perception, which seems to be everything as a bubble team in the college basketball scene right now. But at least we control our destiny (kind of), and if we miss it's probably our own fault. 

Regrets will come if we miss, and minds will race back to those woulda-coulda-shoulda games like Kansas and Penn State.

Very pedestrian win.  Never ever in doubt.  

 

3 point shooting was ugly.  Too many missed open looks.

 

Missed bunnies drive me crazy.

 

Is it just  me or does Isaiah seem to get better and more confident each game.

 

Isn't it nice when we win...and oh by the way ...the bench is having a blast during the games...did anyone else see them rowing 🤣

If the second jack wagon would have sub out his starters when Miles did it may have looked better.

Definitely a lot of bounce in young Erving. Roby is so fun to watch when he's locked in.

I agree. I don't like the idea of Penn St. on the 5 line at all. Even if we do somehow collapse down to the 5, I'd hope that it's Michigan that ends up in the 4. But that said, it would take a lot for NU to fall below the 4 seed.
