    I haven't checked messages in a free days so I missed this one! But 12dozen I can probably answer a few of your questions seeing as Nicea just went back to Lincoln on Tuesday after being home for 2 weeks. Like Proudparent said, the girls were due back yesterday. I know Nicea is helping with bball camp that starts today thru the weekend. And is also taking a summer class. She's excited bc she just moved into her campus apartment - which is very nice btw! She said all the girls actually get along really well. She tends to hangout (more) with Grace, Maddie & Hannah. Though they're not required to play, Nicea said alot of they play against each other almost daily at Hendricks or they team up and run the court over at the rec center lol ... She said the 2 transfer girls, Bria and Janay are very good. Bria is very quick and gets to basket and passes really well; and Janay is a great shooter. Son for anyone upset over RCJ transferring need not worry lol.. relationships with coaches seem to be good. The girls are still required to meet with their assigned coach once a week to talk about bball, classes, concerns, life, etc. Personally I hope they up their conditioning and move towards being an uptempo type of team. Because we're obviously going to be guard- heavy. Hope this helps a little bit! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Quite a few of us did. I actually believed it was a for long conclusion that she would announce this. I was hoping at first it was just a rumor and that Coach Williams could get her to buy in, get in shape and start to play at a top level. The part of the rumor I despised the most was that during the season she was contacting other programs about transferring and gauging the interest they had in her. Channel 10/11 confirmed this rumor last night. I'll admit it was extremely hard watching her play with that rumor of what she was doing in the back of my mind. The main reason I very seldom gave her game props in game day threads and was reluctant to post in this thread. I'm actually glad that we'll never have to look up at the northeast wall at PBA and see her number up there with the likes of Ivy, Jennings, Griffin, Moore, Hooper or who ever else that might get put up there. I also have my fingers crossed that this will light a fire under the coaching staff to go out there and prove they can get us back to being a consistent top 10-20 team. Nebraska is still a head coaches dream job even with the lull we've hit these past couple of seasons. There's to much fan support, budget support and great facilities to let this program slip more into mediocrity.

    I appreciate everybody in this forum, and really love the support you all have for the girls. Of course I always watch what I say bc I do realize that potentially Nicea would be the one who'd have to answer for it. But I do enjoy sharing alot of the information, etc that you guys normally don't get to hear about. Again thank you! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    My two cents worth on Jess' decision to transfer. I have mixed feelings about her decision. As skilled as she is, I never fell in love with her game. She could have done so much better if she would not have tried to force the issue on many occasions. She was the worst post player defensively that I can remember. Her bonehead decisions to force the ball, Make silly passes and/or her mental lapses when she did not hustle or catch the ball when open for shots underneath basket plus the number of blown shots drove me crazy. My expectations of her were considerably higher. I expected her to work on her jump shot from the key area and 15-20 feet out to the point that she would hit it consistently. She had much more work to do inside than to try to become a 3-point threat, in my opinion. She should have left the three point shooting to the guards while stationing herself under the basket for rebounding. Hopefully, we can turn the corner and install a game that makes use of the talent that remains behind and play with a lot more hustle, focus and enthusiasm than we did with Jess as our so--called leader.

    Don't want to be to negative....but... One of the articles said she as going to some "gym" in Omaha, I think, to get in shape and improve conditioning as she prepares to go to irish land. So we weren't good enough here, for her to improve conditioning ??? I guess it's an admission she knows she hasn't been in good basketball shape at UNL.. I'm pretty sure that was an issue with Coach Amy.

    Just when we thought we may not be getting another post player for this fall our coach comes through with what appears to be a good one. It is becoming obvious to me that the players Coach Williams is looking for and has added to our team to date are not just good players but must be able to add to the all important team chemistry that she is working hard to improve as evidenced by her recent quote on Kate Cain where she said "She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska." I think the key words are humble and hard-working. There will be a lot of competition for playing time especially when the four verbal commits for 2018 come in. We are and will continue to be a young team with lots of opportunities for players to take advantage of. I personally like where we are at and am looking forward to following our team in the future.

    So he should just crawl in a hole and die or something? Something bad you did when you were 15 should disqualify you from ever having joy in your life or experiencing success or finding happiness? How much penance would satisfy you? Is there some point in time that you would be willing to say he can move on with his life and try to be a normal guy? Or do you think we should brand a scarlet letter on his forehead and make him go around the earth yelling "unclean, unclean" like the lepers of biblical times? And, just for the record, I'm not an apologist for sex criminals. I'm just one of those strange individuals who truly believes you can vote against a school bond issue and it doesn't make you anti-child or that you can have compassion for those who have fallen afoul of the law and it doesn't make you pro-crime.

    Taylor is an intriguing guy and I agree with you that he isn't getting a lot of respect. I think part of that is that we think we know what we have with him and we know how good a team we were (or weren't) last year, and so we're naturally hoping that some of the unknown commodities on the team will turn out to be significant upgrades. But Taylor is an intriguing player. He didn't hit a 3-pointer until the Northwestern game in early January and, from that point on, he was 30% from downtown. He was never a volume shooter from deep but he definitely got better as the season went along. He hit 4 of his last 8 three point attempts. We would certainly take those numbers if that progress was something he could sustain. He has good length and he can get to the rim, maybe not as reliably as Webster, but he is a threat to penetrate. And, if he's shooting 30% or better from three, he's a guy you'll have to guard out there. In some ways, he's like a stretched-out Benny Parker: good D, adequate shooter, unselfish glue guy who can handle the ball. Except he's 6'5". He was third on the team in minutes last year, behind only Tai and Glynn. I think it's safe to say that if he gets displaced in the rotation, it's going to take someone really good to beat him out. And if that really good guy emerges, that's a good thing, right?

    I disagree, respectfully, with the statement he wasn't ready. I think people on here are talking a lot about what Isaiah wasn't able to do last year. But there's all kinds of things that he did do and did very well. One thing we have to keep in mind is that he was a freshmen. And freshmen make the adjustment from HS to major college hoops at different rates. Sure, Isaiah might have struggled at times last year, but there were other times where he really showed his upside. In my opinion, he needed to have a freshman year. Not a redshirt freshman year, but a freshman year where he gets a really good read on where he is and where he needs to get to. I see his role being a guy like Shavon Shields who takes his defenders off the dribble and can get to the rim. Isaiah showed that ability. He can spin in the lane, create some separation, and finish. Great attribute. He also, by the way, is a pretty skilled passer. The thing he most needs to work on offensively is his jumper. And given where his percentages were as a freshman, I think a complete overhaul wouldn't be out of the question. You won't find very many good shooters whose guide hand is basically behind the ball and the left elbow winged out like that. Look at any good shooter in the NBA, from Steph Curry and Kevin Durant to Kevin Love and Lebron James. None of them shoot like that. They all get that guide hand forward and the elbow more in. For the love of God, Isaiah, model your shot off of someone good like that. You have time this summer. Watch yourself on video or in the mirror.

    The players are due back on campus on June 1st but they don't start workouts until June 12th. I think that this upcoming team would have to be a Golden State Warriors team where they just run and gun. We need that Draymond type of player which I think Maddie can be that if she settles down. We saw signs of that towards the last couple of games. I think that the transfers will help but will it be enough? One transfer is putting in work this off season. I know she should be ready. Her trainer says that she's got that bounce. I hear that it's hard to find a big. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    i get it. He made some freshman mistakes and his injury kept him from fully developing. It was obvious, however, that his ceiling is very high. You don't see many 6'9" kids as fluid or handle the ball as well as he does. Many of his mistakes weren't attributable to lack of talent - I felt it had more to do with confidence and learning how to play at the Big 10 level. When you overthink things, you play much slower and are prone to making mistakes. If and when he gets beyond that, he has the potential to be a nightmare match-up (offensively and defensively). He will be able to take people off the dribble and get to the rack with his size. Very excited tee see if that develops

    I covered Justin all throughout his high school career. I like him a lot and he's a great pick-up. Like Jake said, he's better than any of the walk-ons from last year. However, you guys probably need to reel in expectations just a bit. For one, he's not a point guard; he's definitely a shooting guard. He handled the ball a decent amount and is capable of making some nice plays, but he's at his best off the ball running off screens. He also got little recruiting attention for a reason, and he wasn't going to be a D-I scholarship player anywhere. His first offer was from Benedictine and there wasn't much else beyond that. The problem is he is not a good defender at all. He's a pretty good vertical athlete but struggles laterally. To be clear, I'm a big fan of his. We had him at No. 9 in the class in our final 2017 rankings. I'm looking forward to seeing him in a Nebraska jersey. But if he's playing more than walk-on minutes, something went wrong with Allen, Palmer and Gill.

    Totally agree. I had a hard time seeing how Taylor would fit in when we signed him, but he definitely filled a role. Other than shooting, he is one of the better guys on our roster at everything we've asked him to do: decent ball handler, versatile defender, can slash to the hoop, good rebounder for his size, actually moves without the ball on offense, etc. Granted, being a below average shooter is a glaring weakness when you're primarily SG/wing type of guy, especially because that's what most fans latch onto. But there's no way Taylor goes from a starter last year to mop up duty next year. I think his floor is 17-20 minutes/game, and even then I would expect to see him as a team captain and in the starting lineup.
