    10. 12/21/2013 - The Citadel Report Card

      OVERALL GRADE: D

      You can tell me you don't see this game as alarming and I will understand. I totally get that viewpoint.

      However, I don't share it. To me, this game was just as much of a debacle as Creighton (just in a different way). That marks about the fifth time we've come out with our fingers up our butts this year in the first half. We are NOWHERE NEAR good enough for that.

      Do you honestly think we're all of a sudden just going to turn it on come Big 10? That this will never repeat itself? Its just a few isolated incidents? No chance.

      Habits are learned and mentally, this team is in big, big trouble right now. If we want to ignore that and drink the Kool Aid, I'm fine with that. But if we're being real here, this is pretty damn disturbing.

      Not the kind of effort I would expect against the second worst team on our schedule in a "tune up" game. I hope these guys are as good as they think they are and will now just flip a switch, because it sure doesn't seem like they're working toward it on at least 20% of the 30 times a year they play.

    16. 03/15/2013 - Big 10 Tournament: Ohio State Report Card

      2d2LD.jpg

      OFFENSE: D+

      Nebraska came out and lit the world on fire in the first five minutes of this game via HOT shooting. Unfortunately though, from that point forward, NU went into multiple 4+ minute "offensive hibernations" where they didn't score, and that (along with turnovers) let this game get away slowly in the first half but surely in the second.

      For the game, Nebraska shot 41% from the field, including just 16% (3-19) from downtown. Ray Gallegos and Dylan Talley finished a combined 2-13 from beyond the arc and obviously, that wasn't going to even keep Nebraska in the same zip code.

      Brandon Ubel goes out as "Player of the Game" for the second night in a row, finishing his NU career with 16 points and 7 rebounds in this one.

      It was sad to see Talley dealing with sickness during this tournament and Andre Almeida barely making it into the game but overall, our seniors can definitely leave Nebraska satisfied in knowing that they gave all they had and left it on the court.

      Thank you, seniors.

    17. 03/14/2013 - Big Ten Tournament, Purdue: Report Card

      Shavon Shields interviewed after win over Purdue

      OFFENSE: B

      Nebraska was JUST good enough to pull this one out, as the Huskers finished with 45% from the field and 71% from the stripe (though they finished just 3-8 from the line).

      In the opening half, when NU's legs were fresh, they were en fuego, finishing with 52% from the field, including 15 first half points for Shavon Shields, who continues to look better and better with each passing game. For the night, the Olathe, Kansas freshman finished with 19 big points.

      If you asked me at the half, there would be NO WAY he wasn't the Player of the Game.

      But after four quick second half points, Shields wouldn't be heard from again, and it was up to Brandon Ubel to finish with Shields started, as the senior put in 16 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists!!!

      Ubel is a "slam dunk" Player of the Game and speaking of which, imagine his line if he'd have finished the "bunnies" around the rim.

      It was great to see NU run its offense THROUGH THE POST in this game, as I've been harping on NU for not doing this for several weeks now. Ubel got touches nearly every possession and once the ball went inside or to the middle, good things happened.

      Had the Huskers shot a little better in the second half and at the line, this would be an "A" but as it is, it was a solid night for the Big Red.

    18. 03/02/2013 - At Illinois Report Card

      2cvz4.jpg

      OFFENSE: A

      Nebraska shot a solid 46% from the field, including a sizzling 50% (9-18) from downtown.

      Converting from long distance is what enabled the Huskers to hang around in this game, as our Co Players of the Game Ray Gallegos hit on 6-13 from downtown (en route to 23 points) while Dylan Talley finished at 2-3 (with 20 points). Both guys played all 40 minutes and Talley dished out 5 assists to go along with 5 boards.

      Combined, the two scored 43 of NU's 65 points, or roughly 2/3's!

      One thing I will say is that I didn't like how many key shots David Rivers was taking in the final five minutes of the game. This is not to hate on Rivers at all, as he played another solid ball game and gave all he had (which was quite a lot!). He had a couple of very nice offensive rebounds and put backs, as well as getting to the free throw line, and had a big block defensively in the first half. He played well.

      However, I would have preferred to see any of the other four players on the floor (Ubel, Shields, Talley, Gallegos) taking shots in the final few minutes of a game.

      Once again, Ubel was a ghost in this game, finishing with just 6 points and 4 rebounds in 40 minutes.

      All in all, for the way this basketball team is built, 65 points and 46% is pretty darn good - NU just couldn't get stops.

      Michigan Flight




      *** NOTE ***

      THIS IS THE FIRST HHC REPORT CARD IN THE SEVEN YEAR HISTORY OF THE SITE THAT HASN'T INCLUDED NUMBERS FROM THE GAME. THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S NOT WORTH ANALYZING/WAITING FOR THE STATS, DUE TO THE FACTORS MENTIONED BELOW. HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND. :)

      OFFENSE: D-

      Nebraska looked good the first seven minutes offensively.

      Other than that, they were very, very bad, not being able to hit the side of a barn and having a ton of shots go in and out.

      The Huskers never attacked the basket to get easy baskets and get to the foul line. In fact when they did attack, they were usually rejected by Wisconsin big men.

      NU showed no effort for the majority of this game (and in many recent games) in getting the ball to Brandon Ubel/involving him in the offense more. This is my one gripe with Coach Miles in recent games - it's almost like Ubel is now a 4th or 5th option in the offense.

      Nebraska went about eight minutes in the second half with one field goal. Killer.

      Calling Shavon Shield's step back

      OFFENSE: B

      64 points and 46% from the field on a consistent basis will allow Nebraska to creep into the middle tier of Big 10 teams - so it was nice to see the Huskers get that production today.

      What wasn't nice was 50% (7-14) from the foul line, including 0-5 to start the contest, but if you look for problems, you're bound to find 'em, as my old man always says. :)

      Nebraska's starting five did a remarkably good job in this game of shooting the basketball and running fluid sets, especially considering the wear and tear they all say from minutes (Gallegos, 40; Talley, 39; Ubel and Shields, 37; Rivers, 35).

      Our Player of the Game is the same guy who ran two God awful fast breaks and took some very questionable shots, yet delivered in the clutch, as he has started to do a lot lately. That is Dylan Talley - who finished with 18 points and one huge, huge, HUGE three point shot.

      Shavon Shields also continues to impress me game by game. I now think he's the best freshman we've had since Aleks Maric.

      Ray Gallegos




      OFFENSE: A+

      We can talk about sets and schemes all we want, but at the end of the day, numbers don't lie.

      And seeing Nebraska shoot 55% from the field and 64% from downtown, along with scoring 65 on the road, tells us they had a pretty good night offensively.

      Sure, we could nitpick and say that NU was bad at the free throw line (53% on 8-15) and sure, we could say that "without Ray Gallegos shooting out of his mind, we wouldn't have looked good or scored much."

      One of those is certain (the free throw shooting) and the other is likely, but at the end of the day, both occurred.

      Gallegos is a slam dunk Player of the Game for scoring a career high 30 points and single handedly keeping NU within arms reach for 3/4 of the contest.

      Have to say though that Ray is really slacking on minutes - only played a weak 38 tonight. Needs to work on his conditioning. ;)

      *** NOTE *** This is the first report card in HHC history with a wink face in it.

    22. 01/16/2013 - Purdue Report Card

      Red Zone

      OFFENSE: C

      Let's be honest - Nebraska scoring 56 in the Big 10 is pretty good for this year's bunch.

      However, I can't go above an "average" grade on this because NU was pretty bad in the first half, shooting just 26% with 19 points.

      At the start, things looked promising, with Andre Almeida scoring four quick points.

      However, as the half drug on, and Dylan Talley/Ray Gallegos were non factors, along with Almeida disappearing, things went downhill.

      Luckily, NU shot 40% and scored 37 points in the second half, which would earn them an "A-", so we split it and give them a "C."

      Good grief, how good were Shavon Shields (18 points, 8 rebounds in 37 minutes) and Jordan Tyrance (10 points, 7 rebounds in 21 minutes) tonight? They are "Co-Players of the Game," simply because Tyrance deserves this and I highly doubt, the rest of his NU career, he gets mentioned for the award again. Had to give it to him once.

    23. 01/13/2013 - At Michigan State Report Card

      Michigan St

      OFFENSE: B+

      Nebraska shot just 40% from the field and attempted only eight free throws, but with that said, NU scored a season high 56 points in Big 10 play.

      Not only that, but 32 points in the first half was impressive and allowed the Huskers to make this a 40 minute game, which it was.

      Speaking of impressive, David Rivers - HOW ABOUT THAT?!?!??!

      The sophomore put in 18 points on a PERFECT 8-8 from the floor (1-1 from downtown) and even more impressive is the fact that he never came out of the game. That's right, Rivers played 40 minutes (as did Ray Gallegos).

      Rivers earns our Player of the Game award.

      Only negative offensively was when fatigue took over down the stretch, as well as that awful shot Dylan Talley put up with NU down one point and around 3 minutes left. 30 on the shot clock, no numbers, pull it out, don't take an off balance 16 footer! Andre Almeida was also especially poor tonight, which seems to be the theme throughout this season, though we don't know how banged up he is right now, so its tough to be too critical.
