      Isaiah Roby scores a career high 19 points as Nebraska celebrates the Barn's 90th birthday with it's first conference road win in Minnesota.

    Thoughts during the game. A bit of a stream of consciousness effort today.

     

    Pregame:

    • Michigan lost. Grrrrr….
    • No Amir Coffey. Hopefully that’s a break NU can take advantage of.

     

    1st Half:

    • That was the exact start I was afraid of. Not sure what Watson was doing on that first possession. He got a wide open look and just biffed it. Minnesota came out on fire, which I was a little worried about.
    • I liked the time out and response, though. A nice 11-2 run to respond was really encouraging.
    • Copeland was running the floor really hard. Loved seeing that.
    • Washington is gonna be a good player.
    • It’s fun when we hit from 3.
    • Jordy just can’t handle the ball. At all.
    • Through the under 8 timeout, NU looks like the fresher team. And they’re playing with the urgency that a team on the bubble should play with.
    • Huskers went on a 37-15 run after falling behind 7-0 to start the game.
    • Roby got another #mansizedrebound according to Mr. Bardo.
    • Palmer takes it to the hole like Lance Jeter used to do.
    • I love watching Thomas Allen shoot the basketball.
    • That 3 by Watson with about 30 seconds left was the worst shot we took in the half.
    • Of course Washington hit that 3 at the end of the half…
    • All-in-all, I’ll take that half, but that wasn’t a great end to it.
    • If NU keeps playing hard in the 2nd, they’ll be fine.

     

    2nd Half:

    • The break seems to have done Gill some good.
    • Minnesota came out of the gates attacking. We’ll see if they can maintain it. I’m skeptical.
    • The Watson to Roby lob was a work of art!
    • JPJ was short on a few free throws tonight. Didn’t really expect that.
    • The bulk of that run by Minnesota to get back in the game was with Watson, JPJ and Cope on the bench.
    • Foul trouble for JPJ is problematic.
    • I like how Roby attacks after grabbing the rebound.
    • The Pitino technical foul killed all their momentum. NU went on a lightning quick 6 point spurt after that.
    • Evidently Pavelka called Pitino a “jack wagon” on the broadcast. lol
    • We had some timely offensive rebounds.
    • Taylor hit a couple of clutch shots, too.
    • I don’t know how Washington hit that shot around Roby. Circus. If he can find an outside shot, he’ll be impossible to guard. He almost is already.
    • I know they shot the ball fairly well, but 21 attempts from 3 is too many.
    • WOW! What a fortunate shot from Taylor on that broken possession. Huge play!
    • Roby with all the dunks!
    • They’re breaking the press a lot better now than they did in November.
    • NU had an answer for every Gopher challenge. Really impressive, actually.
    • To get 93 with the foul trouble JPJ was fighting is pretty impressive.

    Offense = Sharp

    Defense = Inconsistent - closer to bad then good

    Roby = Rock star

    Remainder of the team on offense = Very, very solid.

     

    Hey, win and move on.  Heck, I don't even know who we play next...seriously.  Can't worry about two games in advance.  Can't worry about the tournament (either the Big Ten or NCAA).  We just need to take care of business and win the game in front of us.  If we continue to win each game...the rest will take care of itself.  Others can start and respond to those concerns.  I will simply worry about the game in front of us.

    RUTgers.

    So besides the funny joke... I just realized. We are now on the end of “This Coach has done a really good job and he is really good even though the season sucks” comments!  Wow!  Feels good.

    We let them have whatever they wanted on the offensive end.  They were able to drive, shoot open 3's, and pound it inside.  Needed to take something away.

     

    Offense was good.   Shot over 50 % from the field.  Had 5 players finish in double figures.

     

    Gill and Allen seemed to take advantage of the rest.

     

    Much needed win.

    Yeah, they are pooping down their legs.  I know when I see this because my 2 year old did this earlier tonight.  

     

    Edit - they not only pooped down their leg, they shit the bed as well.  Are you kidding me???!!!

    And...they've officially blown it with a TO and easy BSU bucket.  And a horrible 3-point attempt at the other end.

    Jordy played well again. 6 points and 6 boards in 11 minutes. If we can continue to get that sort of production out of him that will be huge.

     

    He also had the nice move to go back to his right, just needs to work on the strength/coordination with the right hand.

    He did some good things. Having 3 or 4 TO was not good.  They are huge momentum killers. He just needs to eat minutes, do what he is supposed to do on defense, and any production is a plus.  I would call his night a wash. Stop turning the ball over.

    Just bought a Kenpom membership. I'm all in. I mean, I was already all in on nebrasketball and basketball in general, but the stat nerd I am needs more, needs to be let out. This is all terribly exciting. :lol::D

    Lmk if you need me to look anything up guys. I know there are plenty more accomplished in nerddom than me, and others here with kenpom (not to mention reddit). But we out here! Nebrasketball, baby! #impulsebuys

    That was probably Kent's last chance to do so.  Unless we're playing some sub 250 RPI team next year that Pitino happens to be coaching.

     

    Those guys owe him way too much money to fire him

    Balanced scoring.   All 5 starters in double figures.   If Roby , Gill , and Glen can stay hot  down the stretch , and it’s not just  Palmer and Copeland putting up most of the points , we will be hard to  hard to cover, and hard to stop, and hard to beat!
