    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 8 - B1G/ACC Challenge: Boston College

      Needed it. Got it.

     

     

    • Offense seems to be coming around. The first half was really sharp.
    • Defense is still a work in progress. It's better than it was at the beginning of the year, but there's still a long way to go.
    • We need Roby to get back soon. He makes such a big difference for this team. Coach talked about it on the post game show.
    • Copeland's finding his rhythm. His mid-range jumper is smooth.
    • Glynn is good at basketball.
    • The energy on defense is better. The execution isn't where it needs to be, but the energy and effort is much better and for longer stretches. Hopefully that will turn into better production on that end sooner rather than later.
    • They show glimpses of being disruptive defensively, especially on the perimiter and in passing lanes, but they just need to get more consistent. It's largely a mentality thing, I think.
    • Boston College is a bad jump shooting team. They're athletic and can do some things off the dribble, but at least tonight, they threw up some ugly shots from 3.
    • Good to see Thomas Allen back out there. I like what I see from him when he's out there. He's gonna be fun to watch grow over the course of the season.
    • Not sure we really need an in game emcee.
    • There was a while there in the middle of the second half where BC was winning a lot of the statistical categories, except for 3 point shooting. NU pulled away down the stretch, but there was a while there where there was some concern.
    • The free throw shooting makes want to bang my head against the wall.

     

    Things get real beginning on Sunday. Let's see how much fight these guys have.

    We got the win.  That is what we needed to do.  Now it is time for this stretch.  While this is not a defining stretch for Tim Miles, it is a chance... an opportunity to show that we have grown since last year, the year before that, and the year before that.  It is an opportunity to show that we need to be taken seriously.  Even more though, it is an opportunity to rally up some Husker support from those fans who are just looking for something positive in Husker men's athletics.  You have an entire football fan base that is basically done with the season well before last year.  Let's rally some of those people, get them on board, and make something of this season.

    Enjoyed being in attendance last night but some of the non basketball nonsense needs to go.  I don’t know how it enhances the audience experience.

     

     The team seems to play together and I like how Palmer let the game come to him and didn’t force the issue.  My concern in the first half was that BC could get into the lane much easier than NU.  We still don’t  beat people off the dribble much and defensive rebounding needs to improve.  A few offensive rebounds would be nice.  

     

    We seem to have some mid range shooters and some three point threats but still had a 6 minute drought.  Hope we will compete for 40 minutes at Sparty and that a large, enthusiastic crowd is presentat PBA when Goldy comes to town.

    We have hit desperate times to have an emcee at the games.  Here's a though, how about fire him and use the money to hire a person who can actually put together a better video before they announce the starting line-up.  That is painfully bad and does nothing to get the crowd worked up.  It would be better not even having a video instead of playing that horrible one!!!

    I politely disagree. I think the video is awesome, although maybe not quite as good as the first year in PBA. I just feel that we do a poor job as a fan base at getting loud during team intros. Also, unlike football, we don't have as much tradition to put in the video package like we do for the tunnel walk.

    1) Jordy threw a couple of very nice passes to cutters last night. I would like to see more of this. 

    2) At one point in the first half, both Glynn and Evan Taylor were out of the game. We looked like  a rudderless ship. Might had to do with Glynn not feeling well. 

    3) Boston College is a terrible outside shooting team. They shot about 25% in warmups. 

    4) Hope we win one of next 4. Minnesota is the best chance. Need a great crowd for that. 

    5) Evan Taylor was really terrific recruiting by the staff.  I think that guy would make a heck of a coach. 

    6) It looked like the light bulb turned on for James Palmer the last part of the game. He looked really smooth. 

    7) I've never thought Miles teams set good picks. They look so half hearted. 

    7) Duby looked Okeke...

    I thought Minnesota beat the Jays in a closed scrimmage.  Why is everyone saying, with absolute certitude, the Gophers are the worst if the teams we’ll play?

    Went to the game with a guy who has an AM talk show in Lincoln. Sat in front of the guy from 24/7 sports. Wonder if D-Wayne was in the works pre Moos? Probably.

    in theory, he could add a cool element to the atmosphere at PBA. Guess the PA announcer is a guy from 96 Kix I think. Anyway, instead of reading the promos and telling the guy who was 50’ from finding the $100 bill “Oh, soooo close!” I’m hoping he tries to get the crowd more pumped up.

    Because Tim Miles will never, ever, ever beat Greg McDermott.

    Well, we play Minnesota in Lincoln.  That's pretty much it.  Minnesota is the better team but  McDermott owns Miles and we haven't won a regular season game in Omaha since when...the 90's??

    Doc had a win up there I believe.

    Our offense in general is just so brutal to watch at times, the correlation between when we score vs. how much we move on those possessions is probably shocking. The times we have a 4 minute scoreless stretch is when we have 4 guys outside, the only one moving is the one with the ball, with Jordy posting up, wanting to turn it over. I mean the guys without the ball on the off side don't even screen down have the time.. just literal standing.

    That's not what happened in this game.

    As mentioned by dimes in a previous post, at least in the BC game, our drought was different than in the past.  It looked like we had a pulse on what we wanted to do to try and get a score.  We had one for sure, but maybe even multiple buckets called off by the referee.  

     

    Every team has droughts at some points.  What has to be there during those droughts is D and intensity.  That happened Wednesday.

    Just meant in general, but there definitely were possessions with this happening in this past game.

    I don't necessarily agree with your premise in general though. There are plenty of times with little movement where we score as well.

    FWIW, here are our odds of winning in the next 4 games (according to science):

    Science also says we have a 50% chance of getting at least one win out of there!

    I don't think so....Collier won in Omaha during the NIT.  But, outside of that...I think it's been since the 90's and the CIVIC center days since we won during the regular season.  Like I said, I do think Minnesota is the better team...but, I feel much better about our chances vs them in Lincoln.

    I will just add that our defense on the high pick and rolls is really bad. Jordy seems half-hearted in his hedge, which basically turns both the screener and the player with the ball loose. I have to wonder how much of that is Jordy remembering from last year, where he would really body the guy with the ball on the hedge and pick up a foul. Maybe he is afraid of that and so becomes timid, leaving him in never-never land; stopping neither the ball handler or the screener diving to the basket.

    I posted on this earlier. Looks to me like it is our plan to slow play the screen and roll instead of aggressively hedge. At least that's the way we played it until the last 5 minutes or so of the BC game.
