Most Frequent Lineups over the last 5 games
Notice the 6'10" post player they roll out? I think we see Jordy tonight because of this and should he struggle we'll see a lineup change next Friday vs the Stetson Hatters.
Players to watch: Simon Okolue
The 6'10" Juco center is leading the team in points, rebounds and blocks. Will the Huskers fall back into their traditional pack line against a team like this that doesn't make or take many 3s?
One way to not lose a pay game is to schedule them on weekends. Another way is to schedule really bad teams. Tonight we have both as Huskers are basically buying themselves a win here as a fairly punchless Delaware St.
The Hornets slow things down a bit as they run a lot of various zones and after made baskets will steal more time with a 3/4 court 1-2-2. There should be a lot of open 3s tonight. Will we give up on driving to the rim? You never really know what sort of effort you'll get on either end in a game like this. Offensively the Hornets will also burn through a lot of shot clock as they try and minimize possessions/put you to sleep. Okolue, sharpshooting anagram Artem Tavakalyan, and Johquin "Pinky" Wiley are the guys to look for but this team doesn't necessarily have a go to guy. Wiley is especially sloppy with the ball at the point so you'll have some breakaway potential.
As with any games there is always the danger of losing as a sub-standard Pittsburgh team tried to prove last Tuesday against the Hornets. This Nebraska team is too talented to lose this game even if they sleep walk their way through it, right?
Prediction: Nebraska 84 - Delaware St 61
