    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.

    If Tai gets picked & AW-III doesn't, that will be some type of justice or somethin'

    The PBA was filled with why doesn't the coach play just 7 last year. They didnt/don't understand that Williams plays 10 sometimes 12 players. I posted last year that coach likes to play her bench. All the people have to do is go to the So. Dakota Web site and see the minute's that she gave her bench. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    People will be a bitching about the 10 man rotation. I guess if you have 10 players that can play, play em. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    The WBB roster shown on Huskers.com has just been updated to include Kate Cain. I hope #31 has a great 4 years at Nebraska. She is listed as a center.

    Well, how about that? Just about the time so many of you had decided that Coach couldn't recruit a big - indeed, many said she wasn't trying to recruit a big - she signs a top 100 true post who can play immediately. Maybe Coach does know what she is doing.

    >She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska I also think this quote was an indirect shot at a fat, slobby prima-donna we used to have putting in her time at Nebraska.

    Walt P saying he's matured a lot, I guess I have to give him some credit because that's basically an admission that he wasn't mature enough before. Also tells me that maybe players don't hate Miles as much as some on here were reporting last March. Glynn Watson never transferred. That kind of tells you something too. I had heard that there were some flies in the ointment on last year's team. At least one of them transferred away and won't be missed as much as some around here thought. That helped chemistry right there.

    Sounds like the Huskers have received a verbal from 6-5 Kate Cain a 4 star post from Middletown, NY. Cain who will be a freshman this fall (should be eligible to play right away,) had originally signed with Delaware, but was granted her released after the Delaware head coach resigned last April. ESPN has her ranked as the 82nd best player in the 2017 class and 10th at her position. http://www.espn.com/high-school/girls-basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/216517 Nothing officially announced yet, but stay tuned, something could be released at any time. Keep your fingers crossed that this comes to fruition and soon.

    Who said she wasn't trying to recruit a big? I read this board a lot and I don't remember that. I'd like to see the quote. From anyone, let alone from "many of you," who said Coach wasn't trying, And I don't think we should count any quotes from Kearney man.

    (Omar Bradley gets a call during breakfast one morning) Patton: Pssst, Brad. I'm across, but don't tell anybody! Brad: You mean the Rhine?!!! Yeah, I snuck some units across the river last night. There aren't many Krauts around though - I don't think they know I'm there! Excerpt from "A General's Life" by Omar Bradley. Great Book - well written. A Great General; A Great Life!

    So, I noticed Melo Trimble didn't get drafted either. I always thought he should have gone after his Freshman year. He was never better/had more hype then he did at that time.

He readily admits the need to improve in that area, and said he's battling Husker sophomore Isaiah Roby in on-the-court workouts. He's also worked to improve the consistency of his jumper and his ability to get open off screens and create for himself off the dribble. McVeigh said he'll play mostly at the 3 spot in Taipei, so being able to handle the ball at a high level will be crucial. "I'm a lead-by-example type of guy, so just making sure I'm in the gym the most, getting the most shots up and kind of being that voice (in workouts)," McVeigh said of trying to take on more of a leadership role in the offseason. "Just really helping everyone. We want to do something special, so you really have to set up that leadership because that's a big part of winning."

    How Good Is Tai Webster??

    No he wouldn't. He seems to have been working to improve his shot by getting the shoulders back. You should land slightly in front of where you take off on your jump shot but you need to get the shoulders back. When that happens it creates a flatter angle at the shoulder giving you more arch and a more consistent shot. Here are some people who have shot with their shoulders back in the past and going forward.

    I hope Burns will be healed, and just be able to play. It's obvious she loves the game. ...and ....she can work with Cain in learning some the Rachel's toughness and aggressiveness. That may be one of the important things to adapt to in the college game. After all she'll be a freshman rookie, with ton's to learn. Sounds like Cain has some good fundamentals....as well moves with the basketball, rebounds... and can shoot. oh...and she's 6-5. That's height on the floor is a psychological boost to the team. Just hope she can learn fast and not be to overwhelmed. Good luck to her...sure glad she pulled the trigger for NU. !!! Welcome Kate !!

    Pretty good article on Lance Jeter. Good to hear about our successes of our ex-basketball players. Once a Husker, always a Husker. http://www.timesonline.com/sports/college/basketball/beaver-falls-lance-jeter-back-home-ready-for-new-overseas/article_8fae74ea-5a8d-11e7-a486-87a6e2a8392a.html

    Season Tickets

    Thanks for asking, uni. I am one of the fortunates who have been certified as totally cured. Nothing against Miles or the Pinacle but the late hours and lack of Saturday games make taking grandkids less viable so I don't see the glory days of the BDSC returning, particularly since the old fixed income dictates either football or basketball tickets, but not both. And ,alas, my sons seldom visit the site any more so the sideburns will continue to gather dust. Will probably take some success to bring them back.

    Even if he had stayed another year, he would most likely be in the same situation. The only difference is he wouldve lost a years worth of salary playing for free.

    2 questions I think much of the board would like to hear: How have you been doing healthwise? It has been a few years since we had an update (does your son still post on the board?) When are you going to get those basketball tickets back?

    How Good Is Tai Webster??

    I am going to repeat what I have said for four years, Tai is a very good basketball player. Oftentimes a player is only judged by one facet of his/her game. Tai can score, he still needs to improve his shot, but he can defend, he plays with a chip and he has other intangibles that elevates his game. Glad he stuck with the Huskers for four years!
