    Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving fellow Husker Hoopers! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with food, family, and 7 foot tall post players. I am thankful for this board. My wife, I love her to death, and I am sooo thankful for her as well! However, when it comes to Husker basketball, sometimes she just doesn’t understand the joy, frustration, ups, and downs that come with it.

    Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-1) vs Central Florida (3-0) **ADVOCARE INVITATIONAL ** Date: Thursday, Nov. 19Time: 5:00 p.m. Arena: HP Arena TV Broadcast: No. Internet only, WatchESPN.com Central Florida Head Coach: Johnny Dawkins Location: HP Field House Conference: AAC Nickname: Knights Mascot: Knightro, Pegasus and the UCF Knight Last time out: Beat William & Mary Typical Rotation Depth: 8-10 Line: UCF by 4 4 Factors: Getting to the line Tempo: Slow enough to keep Tacko Fall on the court as much as possible Style: Getting to the lane; making you take bad shots Impress your friends fact: If people thought enough of UCF, and the AAC they would include the 0-4 Knights along with the Huskers in the "Power 5" teams to never have won a NCAA tournament factoid that tears at your soul Impress your friends fact: This is the first time UCF and Nebraska have faced each other Impress your friends fact: HP Field House, the ESPN/Disney synergy arena at Disney World is less than 35 miles away from UCF's campus Injuries: Nebraska: Thomas Allen: Questionable UCF: Aubrey Dawkins, BJ Taylor: Out. Terrell Allen: Probable Miles mentioned that Allen wouldn't have played vs St John's except we ran into foul trouble. While he came in and sank his first 3, his mobility has been limited. He's probably in "Use in Case of Emergency" status for the tourney. We know who Dawkins is; he was expected to start for this team and is out for the year. Taylor was the starting PG and arguably their best offensive player. He's out for a few weeks with a broken f Player to watch: Dayon Griffin You probably already know about Tacko Fall so let's move on. Griffin is a transfer from Louisiana Tech where he lit it up from inside and outside for a 56.3 eFG% (Would have easily led the Huskers last year). Thus far Griffin has been struggling, hitting only 22% from outside. However, the amount of volume that UCF continues to give him indicates they expect him to break out sooner than later. The Skinny: We tend to play fast and loose in these early tournament games and that is probably what we want to shoot for in this game. Tacko Fall has only played 15 minutes this year but probably will be a full go in this game. At 7'6" he is one of the best defensive players in the NCAA and anchors a UCF squad that guards without fouling and patiently waits for you to take a bad shot. The Huskers will want to get out in transition as much as possible to attempt to keep the Knights from setting up. UCF should generate little pressure on the guards so most of the turnovers generated by Nebraska will be self-inflicted. Given how good the Knights will be on the defensive boards with Fall, bruiser Chad Brown and AJ Davis (Dale Davis' son) the Huskers can't afford to give away possessions. On defense the Huskers will have to contend with Fall's high accuracy dunking as well as almost all of the guards making their way to the FT line at will including AAC freshman of the week Ceasar DeJesus. DeJesus currently starts alongside Drexel transfer PG Terrell Allen. Chance McSpadden off the bench provides an offensive punch as well. At this point the Knights are stinking it up from outside to the tune of 24.5% as a team. Is Nebraska still everyone's shooting slump buster? It's going to be a long night if UCF gets hot from outside. Miles talked early on about running zone during these stretches where you play multiple games in a short period. This certainly seems like a team you can zone even with the less exotic 2-3. UCF has looked ok in their first 3 games without Fall but probably are a slightly overrated as losing Taylor was a big blow. Can Nebraska take advantage of this? The big problem I see is that all those FT attempts we've been generating probably aren't going to be there on Thursday so it comes down to taking very good care of the ball and making shots. Is this a team that can make shots? With all due respect to North Datoka's slump busting defense, they really haven't shown it. Prediction: UCF 70 - Nebraska 61 View full article

    It's Coach Amy's game style. The plan I assume is to wear the other team out, and save your own players. We'll see how it works...but just only a few games...or one year isn't enough time to evaluate. If the bench is good enough then it may work. If we have 5, 6, or 7 lets say, and their obviously far better than the rest, and they don't get the minutes, then I'll begin to wonder a bit too. For that matter, not so sure we now have deep enough bench to play 12 effectively. I't just where we are now. Next year we'll be deeper. And the next year may be deeper yet. Depends how we develop. I watch closer when it's crunch time, just how the substitutions go. I do think you'll develop your players faster playing everyone a lot. Granted it not the usual ...most teams play the most skilled ....the most. So, we'll see how we progress, not just this year, but later.

    6,000 minutes in a season is a lot to distribute among 7 women. You'd be talking an average of 29 minutes per player there. You'd probably also be talking walking boots and crutches. That's a lot of minutes across a 30 game season. If your bench is deep and your freshmen are good, get the freshmen in there to develop for down the road and give your starters a blow so that they're strong for the final 5 minutes of the game. If your bench isn't deep, well ... make sure your athletic trainer likes you.

    In a way, all of us has a Tacko Fall to face. For some, shyness might be their Tacko Fall. For others, a lack of education might be their Tacko Fall. For us, Tacko Fall is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us. But as sure as my name is Lucky Day, the people of Lincoln can conquer their own personal Tacko Fall, who also happens to be *the actual* Tacko Fall

    I like the substitution. The funnest teams, and the best teams, I ever played on were like that. Hope it continues. Like someone else said, there will be growing pains. The Creighton loss doesn't detract one iota from my excitement about this team.

    As long as we have a revolving door of transfers who only stay 1-2 years, and a continuous pattern of key/best players leaving early, we will go nowhere. It's sad, too, because we had a HUGE opportunity with new practice facility and arena. I fear unless the next guy gets it right, we'll have the door slammed on the facility opportunity as its only a matter of another decade before we become average again.

    Am I wrong, but Creighton played two freshmen quite a bit in the game and the girl that hurt us most was a Sophomore. We cannot always use youth as an excuse. The lack of practice time for the team together I can accept as a factor.

    Well maybe I can "steal" like 5 other ones from my section and quicky sew them together before the game. Also I'm not allowed to wear white t-shirts in my neighborhood bcause we live in the landing pattern at the Lincoln Airport and all that white was blinding the pilots.

    I know it's been said before but we are really young. 75% of team minutes played against Creighton came from freshmen and sophomores. Many of these players hadn't played together much as well. Practice is one thing but games under fire is a whole lot different. Janay our 3 year starter hasn't played in a game yet. It will be interesting to see what she can bring to the table when she does.

    imo, one might have to enter in the talent factor when you are analyzing those schools. if coach had that type of talent, she may only be playing around 7 deep, too.

    The results of the second game would count. What it doesn't count against is the total number of games Nebraska can schedule; playing a team in a regularly scheduled game that is also in the same exempt tournament you are in doesn't count against your limit, for some reason. So it allows Nebraska to play an extra game this year.
