    uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: Vol 8, Issue 20 - @ Michigan State

      - Before the game, watching on the BTN app, they had a feed from the Breslin Center during intros. While the NU players were being introduced, get this, they were LEADING a "Go Green, Go White" cheer. While they were announcing NU players!!! Can you believe that?!? How rude!!! Also, the non-student fans weren't exactly into it. They were sitting and clapping and stuff. No standing. No standing until the first MSU bucket. Not sure most realize how good things at NU really are.
      - Pretty big defensive breakdown on the first play of the game.
      - Looked like White had a pretty clear shot at an offensive rebound on NU's first possession.
      - MSU got off to the fast start that NU couldn't allow. I like the time out :50 in, intensity clearly elevated after that.

    - Leaving shooters open probably isn't a good recipe for success.
    - True to form, both teams fouling quite a bit early.
    - I think NU is just fine letting McQuaid shoot from just about anywhere on the floor.
    - NU holding their own just fine early.
    - Shields making things happen in the paint.
    - NU cleaning up the glass nicely.
    - Watson just isn't afraid.
    - Playing aggressively. Finishing. Can they maintain this level of play?
    - A little sloppy play, a couple quick shots and unsurprisingly, MSU makes a bit of a run.
    - And NU responds right back. That's great to see!
    - Looks like things got moving a little fast after the under 8 media. White picking up his 2nd didn't help.
    - Hmmm...Shields going down wouldn't be good.
    - I would have brought White in when Shields went down.
    - Webster doing some nice work at the end of the half, there.
    - Love how Parker sells out.
    - Tied at halftime. About all you can ask for!

     

    - Dimes, based on my source on the scene, I think you were right about the enthusiasm of the crowd.

     

    - Shields starts the 2nd half. Good news! And gets the bucket like nothing happened!
    - Mmmm...3 on AW3 isn't good.
    - Shields can get about any shot he wants.
    - ...and 4 on White...shoot...MSU went right at him on back to back possessions.
    - Gonna need Webster to step up.
    - MSU turned into the aggressor for a bit. NU needs to get back on the attack.
    - Somehow MSU stopped fouling.
    - NU really having trouble defending Davis and not fouling.
    - Valentine doing his thing. That's frustrating.
    - Wow, Shields can do no wrong.
    - BIG shot from McVeigh!
    - Webster has a tendency to get caught under the basket. Got bailed out a couple of times.
    - Seems like Parker probably shouldn't throw himself in front of a freight train very often.
    - Oh man, this team is starting to believe. Can they finish? Up 8 at the under 8.
    - White comes back with 7 minutes left...
    - Shields forced things a bit after that MSU 3 to cut it to 4.
    - Oh man, Jacobson's 3 went half way down TWICE!
    - Up 4 at the under 4... nervous...
    - Watson didn't do much after the first three minutes of so of the 2nd half. He needs to be more involved.
    - Too much Webster down the stretch. Watson. Shields. White.
    - And there's Shields again! Just a MONSTER game from him!
    - Loved the play after the clock stoppage! Attack the rim! Gotta hit the free throws, though!
    - How was that a foul on White? And for his 5th? C'mon. And they get free throws out of it. Brutal, potential game changing stretch.
    - Then Jacobson with the foul after Shields' miss. It was a foul, but bad timing. Man...
    - Of course MSU hits all theirs...
    - Didn't like the shot, but a big battle for the board from MJ! Those were some cold-blooded FT's. Good on ya, kid!
    - Big time shot by Harris. Wow.
    - That bank by Valentine, are you kidding me?
    - Webster ALMOST. ALMOST cost the game, but, you now what, he didn't!
    - I thought that shot was going in from Valentine. I was sure of it.
    - HOT DAMN! HOT DAMN! HOLY SHIELDS!

     

    - The talk was can they split the next four games? Well, they got a bit piece of that puzzle out of the way.
    - Did this with almost nothing from White. That's impressive.
    - This may be the defining performance of Shavon Shields' career. I mean, wow!
    - Didn't get much from Morrow, either. He'll bounce back.

    So, how many more games before fans once again start suggesting Miles can't coach and might not be the guy?

     

    What's our record since golfer3 started his "Chain Miles' Door" thread?

     

    (It might not be accurate to describe golfer3 as a "fan."  At least not a Nebraska "fan.")

    I think the one I heard most after Christmas break was "we never replaced Craig Smith".  Well, coach Smith was a very nice coach in his own right, but I think we can lay that theory to rest now that we have a 4 game winning streak.

    GO Scarlet! Go Cream! GO BIG RED! HUSKER POWER! Oh and thanks for the exciting game Spartans.

    They're a worthy opponent, but it's hard for me to remember the last time Nebraska lost to MSU. :D

    Totally agree they are a worthy opponent. It's just fun to see our team win games like this.

    I think we need a no-sit Saturday!!!  Huge game.  Tai finished with 10 and 6.  I know he was upset about the free throw down the stretch, but he just needs to shake it off and celebrate with his teammates.

    Special kudos to Tai, Glynn, Benny, Jack and Michael...they played their hearts off.

     

    Rough game for Ed and Andrew...they never could get in the games flow due to fouls.

     

    But the rock stars tonight are Shavon, Miles and Beckner!

     

    ...and oh yeah, announcer dude, our offense simply does not create a lot of assists...get over it.  And guess what, we sustained it :)

    My 3rd child was born this afternoon in time to watch his first husker hoops game, and boy it was a good one.  They kept taking punches and hitting back.  This has been a fun team to watch.  I'm willing to make sure the new kiddo is up for all the rest of the games if that's what it takes

     

     

    So you named him Shavon right?
