  1. 2017 Gavitt Games Schedule

    Interesting info. And it’s gracious of you to sort-of include the Kansas loss in that list of shoulda’-done-better games. EDIT: The Kansas reference is a joke . . . apparently, it's not very funny.

    I'm bumping my own post here -- sorry for this breach of message board etiquette. So . . . some disclaimers first: The Jays are probably good; and they'll probably beat the heck out of the Huskers. But as a follow-up to my above post, Northwestern lost, a few days ago, to Texas Tech by the score of 85-49. Even by Husker standards of not showing up, occasionally, that's truly laying an egg.

    So . . . I open this thread and see that Jayskers are all agog about their team. And then I turn on their game . . . it’s two points in the last seconds. And this is the same Northwestern team with that mighty 4 point win over Loyola of somewhere and 9 points over that Saint Peter of who-knows-where. Whatever.
  4. Past/Future Opponents First Games

    Ha! Here's a minor point in defense of our Iowa St. scrimmage result: Cameron Lard (F) played against us -- and he hasn't played in a game since. In our scrimmage, Cameron Lard had 13 points on 5-8 from the field (no 3 attempts) and 3-5 from the line, with 6 rebounds and 5 blocks. But still . . .

    From today’s news conference: ***As for potential redshirt candidates this year, Miles said freshmen guards Nana Akenten and Thorir Thorbjarnarson both told him they want to play this season. Miles added that he’s had players in the past change their minds after the season has started and decided to redshirt, but at this point both will be available to play starting with Saturday night’s opener.
  6. One positive note on James Palmer from the Northwood game: remember when we went to a full-court press--once; and James Palmer stole the ball immediately? Now that was impressive. There's no way those guards could handle pressure like that. So, we never did it again--it's an exhibition game, after all.
  7. Nebraska out-rebounded Iowa St. by 30-23. Nebraska held its own against Mississippi St. on the boards: 37-38. It was those monsters from Northwood that took us to the woodshed on the boards. And James Palmer had 4 rebounds against Iowa St., 1 rebound against Mississippi St., and 1 rebound against Northwood.
  8. Palmer, Allen and McVeigh each shot 50% from three (2-4, 2-4 and 1-2 respectively).
  9. Yeah. Northwood is having five guys crash the offensive boards and leaving no one back. We could fast break but don’t very much. Nana and Thorir have a ways to go.
  10. The thing killing us tonight is offensive rebounds: 19-7 right now.
  11. Thomas Allen provided a spark.
  12. Norwood has banked in two threes. Scheesh. And we are having trouble with layups. Disappointing so far.

    Evan Taylor is really, really good at getting to the rim and getting the ball in amid trees.
  14. Open Scrimmage

    Thor has some skills.
