Really disappointing effort, especially in the second half.
- For all the talent that Pettaway possesses, he cost us at least 7 points today. His turnover on the inbounds play combined with the poor decision to take on the entire UAB defense which they blocked and turned into a wide open 3 for their best player may not have cost us the game, but it probably kept us from being within in striking distance at the end. Combine that with Smith's turnover at the end of the first half which led to a a couple of free throws and that's nine points just given away and instead of having a potentially seven or eight point lead at half, it was three. Who knows how the game changes if they go into the break up seven instead of three.
I will take the lead on this and let others join in...back home from the game.
- We should have won this game big, and did.
- Anybody else think the temperature in the PBA is too high...turn down the heat guys!
- Still torks me off when I see fans who choose to leave early, leave behind the basket and in front of the student section and band. I absolutely hate it. If you are going to leave early, sneak out the back door!
- We run a lot of isolation plays. We have a couple of players that CAN and do create.
- FT shooting is spotty at best. I hope we can become more consistent. We MUST become more consistent.
- I thought they played pretty well the first half and into the second. Seemed to let up a bit as the game wore down. Not sure if that was a mental or physical thing.
- I was impressed with the energy they played with to start the game. There clearly wasn't the energy in the building there was on Friday and they didn't let that impact their game. That was good to see.
- Smith played well, for the most part, provided a boost in the first half when it seemed like we were struggling to find a shot. Showed some nice quickness, too.
Shields Named Big Ten Player of the Week Lincoln – Nebraska basketball player Shavon Shields garnered Big Ten Player-of-the-Week honors Monday afternoon following his performance against Florida Gulf Coast last Friday.
What can you say negative about the offense in the game?
I don't even know where to start - should it be Shavon Shields and his game high 28 points? Or should it be Terran Petteway's 17? Or how about some big props for Benny "no love from HHC" Parker's 9 points? Or even TRUE FRESHMAN Tai Webster and his 9 points (and one assist??? I swear it was like 7).
Yes, let's start there, where the offense did - off of the successful screen and rolls designed for Webster, who really (in this game) didn't even need them, based on his ability to penetrate and break down the defense, almost at will. That's why I have a hard time believing he had only one assist. Maybe that's technically right, but the offense started with him, and I firmly believe he got the team relaxed and started by playing even keel.
I know that you guys are as excited about the start of the season as we are down here in Dunk City so I thought I would give you guys a rundown on who we are and what to expect to see from us.
It is well known that after our run to the sweet 16 last year our head coached packed his bags and headed west to USC. Although everyone was disappointed it was pretty widely understood that Andy was always looking to continue his upward trajectory. I know it's early in his career, but I think he has the make up of an amazing coach.
