Purdue vs Nebraska pregame chatter...

Recommended Posts

appears this should be another defensive battle. i noticed a video of husker postgame celebration after the rutgers game. pretty sure it shows janay morton walk out with the group to celebrate. so, hopefully that injury she sustained isn't too bad. maybe she won't be ready for purdue game, but, hopefully won't be out long. if i remember correctly, ncaa stats showed nebraska and purdue #20 and #21 in blocked shots. 

 

purdue is 2nd in the Big Ten scoring defense allowing 59.9ppg while nebraska is 7th allowing 63.9ppg. besides rutgers, not to mention the huskers, i would have to say purdue is another team that has surprised me. i thought it would be very possible Versyp could be on the hot seat this season, but, she has purdue playing well this season.

But is what she is doing enough to not be on the seat.

if they keep playing well, i could see them finishing around .500---they have a few tough games upcoming (including wednesday😁) but i think if they can stay competitive in a good share of them, i think she will survive for another season. i think they had that real good scorer that had to concentrate on her grades---could be big boost if she returns next season. not sure what they have for recruits. anyway, i am a little surprised purdue is that high in the blocked shots category. they play fairly small and their 6'6" gal only averages 8.5 mpg.

I haven't seen Purdue play much, seems to me that they don't have the guardss that can score.I was thinking that they had a big that was fairly good.

might try if i am able. other commitment close to that time, so might miss tonight. 

 

in relation to the big you might be talking about. i thought they had a 6'4" nigerian that they were hoping would turn out to be pretty good. i think she redshirted and would have been a sophomore? seems like they were pretty high on her, but, i don't think she is on the roster anymore. 

purdue does have three guards that shoot the three pretty well. can't remember the exact %'s but think 2 were around 40+% and the other one was 39.9%? looking at too many stats earlier today;)

i was wrong on 3pt'ers.

keys:  12-38  .316

oden:  38-92  .41

mclaughlin 36-104  .346

cooper  7-19  .368

Thanks for starting this thread, Bugeaters!   It's obvious that Purdue is a dangerous opponent and the Husker Ladies will have to be on our game in order to win.

 

EDIT:  OOPS, I mean Whoop!  :Redface:

 

 

I take it all back, Bugeaters; You're a (movie reference) dirty rotten scoundrel  :Stickouttongue:  (for Not starting this thread  :Lol:)

 

Jus kidding, of course.  Thanks for all you do in this forum.

One of the players to really watch is  Ae'rianna Harris.  She is kind of like Wittenger from Illinois.  

She is very active and is an excellent rebounder and has 2/3's of Purdues blocked shots.  Purdue is well coached (2nd in last years big ten tourney).  Purdue has kind of had our number the last couple of years.  A Big win if we can get it.

Purdue's on a bit of a roll. They've won three straight over Rutgers, Iowa, and Northwestern.  So they've pretty well figured out what they need to do to be successful.  They're a bit like us overall. As said above, they play pretty good defense.  They have a few decent shooters...kind of spread around the ball to score....so complete blanket of defense is required.

 

Coach Amy has been focusing on defending certain players, and for the most part it's been successful.  Purdue shots free throws well, so we had better too or it could be the difference..

 

This is one we really need to win.  We've played really good over the last few games.....just hope we're not reading our own press clippings too  much. We must focus.

If we haven't matured enough as a team so that we can "bring it" tonight .....it could well be along night.  

 

Next to no turnovers...shoot 50% for the game, and 60%+ free throws. 3's...maybe 30% ....or better hopefully.

 

We're at home.....that's the deciding factor.....don't sit on your hands fans...we need noise !!

With our record this year, we might be better off if this were a road game.

Really would be good for everyone's soul to get a win at home tom. night.  Gotta win a majority of our home games in conf. to finish well in standings.

for some reason, maybe they feel a little more pressure at PBA. hopefully, they settle in and get a little more comfortable. don't want to lose this one at home. i know coach has stressed she wants and needs to protect home court.

 

have msu @ mich on. Michigan is coming out hot. 23-7 little over 2 minutes left in first quarter. in pregame, stated mccutcheon undergoing concussion protocol. rooting for msu. i thought jenna allen was going to be a beast for msu, but, the few games i have seen msu play this year, she really hasn't been much of a factor.

This is a big time game for us for positioning in the Big Ten Tournament.  A win would put us ahead of Purdue if we end the season with the same Conference record. Simply can afford to lose against a team we only play once. It will be extremely difficult for us to beat Maryland which could result in two more conference loses for us.  If will can end the season in the top four in the conference, that would be a truly assuming feat and coach Williams should win coach of the year. Getting a little bit ahead of myself but I like to dream a little. GBR.

agree-----and i will add another reason: the iowa game will be a real difficult one for the "road warriors"  for a variety of reasons. so, i just think they don't want to let this one get away.

Plus finishing in the top 4 gives you a double bye in the tourment.

Good first half...our defense is a little better than Purdue.  If we hit shots we'll win. We're getting open some...attacking the inside off the dribble, and passing inside.

 

Don't know what the stats are but we missed some shots.  Turnovers OK as were free throws.  Grace made a couple of nice plays.

 

Keep at it girls.....keep up the defense. Pick your shot carefully...they can block shots.  Hit some threes and this game might be over. 

 

Purdue couldn't break our defense much at all.    Push the pace and wear them out.
