  1. Have to say I'm torn as his best highlight is torching Jordy for an easy layup
  2. Does Missouri get that matchup 4/5 months ago? Seems like Advocare is trying to set up a West Virginia/Mizzou final
  3. Usage is everything from rebounds to turnovers to made or missed baskets. Deflections? I don't know of any readily available list of stats that has something like that. Here is just straight usage rate Tai Webster 28 Jordy Tshimanga 26.5 Ed Morrow 22.8 Glynn Watson Jr. 20.8 Jeriah Horne 19.8 Isaiah Roby 16.1 Michael Jacobson 16 Anton Gill 15.5 Jack McVeigh 15.2 Evan Taylor 13.5
  4. I'll define IMPACT as (ORTG/2) + USAGE from http://barttorvik.com/team.php?team=Nebraska&year=2017 ORTG = (points produced per 100 possessions) USAGE = (estimate of teams plays used while on the court) Last year's IMPACT rankings Tai Webster 78.35 Glynn Watson Jr. 75 Ed Morrow 72.8 Jordy Tshimanga 70.2 Jack McVeigh 69 Jeriah Horne 67.2 Michael Jacobson 66.3 Evan Taylor 58.85 Isaiah Roby 57.7 Anton Gill 56.4 In this ranking that doesn't consider minutes played, Jordy is ranked higher and Evan is ranked lower than if you would consider being on the court more to be impactful. Someone remember to bump this at the end of the year and I'll post the results
  5. How do you define balanced?
  6. If i'm crunching the numbers correctly we're looking at Away - Purdue, Michigan, NW, Ohio St Home - Maryland, Mich St, Iowa, Indiana
  7. It links to a video. It shows him making 6 of 8 shots
  8. You don't have to look back much further than Ed Morrow's physicality between year one coming off that leg injury where he would finish shooting layups and year two where he was dunking everything to be able to imagine how much more aggressive Roby will be this year vs last year.
  9. I've heard some buzz that Borchardt could be that guy. If he's gotten himself into a playable shape I think that makes a lot of sense for those times we're matched up against a 250-300# traditional center. Otherwise, I think Roby makes sense for the small ball center vs Jack or Copeland because Roby is probably more physical and the superior rim defender
  10. Surge and Kye didn't play Moses took 30 shots in his Nebraska career and struggled to shoot from 3 feet away Andre had enough trouble getting up and down the court....we weren't going to ask him to pop up from 3. I don't think Jordy will start hoisting up 50 3s a year or something like that. I do think it's realistic to expect about 10 from him and to surpass the during his career the 38 total that MJ put up.
  11. A tweet about Wisconsin's Ethan Happ, a career FT shooting 57.3% center who hasn't taken a shot outside of the paint in his entire career as a Badger
  12. If this was 5 years ago, I'd agree we wouldn't see Jordy shooting 3s. The evolution of the game and hopefully ability is a reason I think he could see it.
  13. Mention of Roby, McVeigh, and Copeland on the court at the same time. With Roby and Jack practicing with the guards and with the posts this could mean we're potentially looking at - small ball lineup with two guards, putting 5 guys on the court that can shoot - lineup with a traditional post/PG where you have four guys 6'8" and taller you need to handle
  14. Jordy drops that that he's been working on his 3 point shot.
  15. I think we're both trying to say the same thing here
  16. He has either started or played them all a ton. If Allen is playing a lot of minutes or isn't starting some games it's because he's not living up to his ranking...not because Miles is unwilling to play freshmen.
  17. From an analytics standpoint though Senior level BP was more efficient than Watson. Glynn is obviously the better player but freshman year Glynn didn't convert at any sort of rate that made him superior to BP with the exception of his ability/willingness to take more shots. Watson and Parker both started games for 1/2 the year with Tai coming off the bench.
  18. They do need bodies
  19. I disagree with that assessment. They both started, especially Benny, out of necessity. Year 1 saw us with 11 scholarship players. Benny was the only active scholarship PG on the roster for TM's first year as Deverell Biggs decided to redshirt. With Biggs, TP, and WP redshirting, that left 8 guys. Shavon Shields was injured to start and Surge wasn't actually a Div 1 player leaving 6 guys. BP got the nod over David Rivers because someone needed to bring the ball up the court. In that game Menke played 16 minutes and Peltz played 11...and it wasn't because we were killing Southern. Eventually Shields came back, Miles stated playing Talley at point, and BP came off the bench. Year 2 saw us with more point guard options: Tai, BP, Biggs, and walkon senior Mike Peltz. Biggs took himself out of the running with the DUI arrest and suspension to start the season. The hype surrounding Tai might have led TM to be inclined to start him over BP or Peltz but looking back it's probable that Tai simply earned it by being the superior option at the time. Tai would end up starting all but two games that season. When I look at Allen and Nana in the context of this roster I'm not seeing the lack of options nor the obvious talent bump they might provide that will garner them the start day 1. I fully expect them, especially Allen, to be in the mix for minutes.
  20. Freshmen starters of game 1 in the Miles Era - Benny Parker - Tai Webster
  21. Is Glynn our best player for driving to the hoop? Maybe it works better if those guys are creating space for guys who probably are better finishers than shooters which I think Palmer and Roby will be. (my apologies if I'm shortchanging anyone here)
  22. When we're talking about improving spacing or improving our 3 point shooting, rolling out a couple of 3pt shooting guards like this is really going to help.
  23. You can check out what any university employee makes. Ali was basically making this same amount for this position.
