  1. Omaha World Hearld this morning on All State game / Kissinger sets record.... http://www.omaha.com/neprepzone/basketball/husker-recruit-taylor-kissinger-of-minden-leads-blue-team-in/article_4d74071c-70d5-11e7-b0e5-f7b2c789ebfd.html
  2. Would think her dad being an x-husker athlete would have an influence on her decision where she goes to school ....especially if NU offers. Would like to see her play another year, and see how she improves....as noted she needs to work on her shots outside of the key, and further her skill sets. Just young and learning the game at this point. But she definitely has the ability to run the floor already.
  3. Let's put it this way...we might win more non conference games this season... than we won on all of last year's schedule.
  4. Kind of think the key word for next years development is the freshly given flexibility......that is... flexibility we didn't have last year. We, out of necessity....just had little ability to substitute with any experienced players. We were so new, and short handed... it was tough to be competitive. The two new freshman I doubt will be bench warmers...we need rebounding and shooting immediately. The two new red shirt guards will really reinforce the position. We'll still be young (and short on experience) but......Things are looking up !
  5. Pretty much right on HUD.....I just hope she's the shooter that we think she is. That being said, I suspect she won't be keyed on right away (by other defenses) in the BIG, and used early as a sub to get her feet on the ground. It's the old get up to speed in the college game. Not many newbies can go toe to toe immediately...at this level.
  6. That's going to be a challenging preseason schedule. There's a number of pretty decent teams. We'll have to jell pretty quickly....isn't going to be easy developing into a competitive team .. lot's of newbies, and inexperience. But...there are some that played a lot last season. I like what we've got coming this year as a squad....all will be pretty used to the "new" coaching staff. All the drama will be behind us for the most part. Good riddance. Let's continue to move forward no matter the youthful team.
  7. A guess of course, but I don't see us to much different ...scheme wise....than last year....but we may be a lot better at what we're trying to do.... than last season. More experienced at pretty much all positions except the post...but faster guards. ..and the kicker....we're going to be young, with about a third of the squad inexperienced, with one year at best for a couple ..... at the college game. The following year should be much the same pattern.
  8. Real interesting ....is the coach leaving or something?? They should have a pretty good chance at recruiting to OSU. Are their facilities way behind the curve?
  9. 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 !!
  10. I for one had no way to know what was going on behind the scenes recruit wise...but I (and others) did maintain there was a definite need for more bigs. And it was nice to see the staff listened to us!
  11. Really really needed add at the post. But there's still lots of room on the roster. Kate rounds out the roster at 12...we can carry 15. Pretty late even to get Kate....doubt we'll find another this late. Lose three this coming year....can take a big class next year. This team going to keep on changing.
  12. If I read that right...it's a BIG ! MORE: #138 by Prospectsnation 4* https://prospectsnation.com/players/all/2017 From an article: Leading the way for Hudson Valley this summer will be Kate Cain, a 6-5 post player who is currently listed as the No. 197 recruit in the Class of 2017 by the All Star Girls Report. “Kate is a good back-to-the-basket post player, but she can also step all the way out to the three-point line,” Reilly said. “She has a good basketball pedigree — both her parents played college basketball. She runs the floor very well, she has good shooting range and a nice shooting touch. Kate made over 80 percent of her free throws for us last year.” http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/katherine-cain/mSKEctTaEeW-8KA2nzwbTA/default.htm https://www.google.com/search?q=katherine+cain+basketball&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwjM08uV39LUAhXrxYMKHWmxCpkQsAQIOg&biw=1600&bih=770
  13. So...it's been quiet on here for a while... Anything that pertain to our team??? ..... that's real news on recruits...or....summer practice? I'm in the middle of moving......so have been out of touch a bit for a while. Just moving across town...but it's still a real pain.
  14. Yea, she would have to sit......and she's gone....I'm all for letting her go
  15. 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.
