Bill Self's Toupee

All-time Husker team

Recommended Posts

With the information on the team coming from their trip to Italy, the season suddenly seems around the corner.  I was out walking (trying to sweat off a pound or four) and thinking, and tried to put together a roster of my favorite players.  I thought I'd share what I came up with, and see what other people would come up with.  The only rule... 13 players, and they must have played for at least one full year at Nebraska.  I also limited myself to players I actually have watched play.

 

Here's my roster:

  • Bigs:  Aleks Maric, Rich King, Verson Hamilton
  • Forwards/Wings: Eric Piatkowski, Carl Hayes, Bruce Chubick, Isaiah Roby, Terrance Badgett, Shavon Shields
  • Guards: Erick Strickland, Clifford Scales, Tyronn Lue, Cookie Belcher

 

Heavy on the Danny Nee, I know...  but we had the most talent then.

PG  - Lue - Nobody faster with the ball in his hands, could score on the break with a pull up jumper.

         Carr -  Top assist man overall

         Moore  -  Crunch time freethrows,  protect the ball & assists.  Great all around pg.

 

SG -  Palmer -  Great finisher.  Also good at getting to FT line.  Could be a wing too.

         Fort - Big time scorer  3rd overall career scorer.

         Marvin Stewart -  21.4 scoring average is 4th best for an overall season

 

W -  Piakowski -  Designated 3 pt shooter for this team.  

        Petteway -   Another scorer either on the drive or from downtown

 

PF    Andre Smith  -  Points,rebounds, defense.   What more can he do

         Venson Hamilton -  Rebounds and blocks  - a defensive enforcer

 

C      Hoppen - The scoring machine  low post to midrange

         Maric    -  Rebounding, hold the middle and low post scoring.  Immovable

         Jura  -  Rebounds &  scoring.   Could be a PF if needed.

I'd go with a BIG starting line-up:

Andre Smith

Dave Hoppen

Venson Hamilton

Eric Piatkowski

Tyronn Lue

Bench - Farmer, Petteway, Palmer

Glad to see Andre Smith get a nod.  Wasn't it Andre that headed into the stands to take on the Antlers at Missouri?

He also stomped and smashed their little remote truck they drove around the court during time outs.. Hit Andre on the foot, he looked down...SPLAT!!!

Not only was he Big 8 POY, he played Center at 6’6” & was an absolute BADass. Plus no one rocked the sideburns like Andre!

For Players I have seen play

 

Starters

 

PG - Lue

SG - Piatkowski

SF - Roby

PF - Hamilton

C - Maric

 

Back ups

 

PG - Watson

SG - Strickland

SF - Petteway

PF - Copeland

C - Hoppin

 

Rich King and Cookie Belcher were close, I think if Rich King wasn's a true Center he'd be in over Copeland and Watson... Since Cookie was not a true PG I gave the nod to Glynn.

 

JPJ - Was just too selfish and streaky for me to put him on the all time list...  Sorry I know Petteway was also selfish and streaky, but he was better.

 

Shields had the heart, but he was not on the same level

 

Edit:

 

I think if I was to pick 5 players to start though

 

I'd go

 

PG - Lue

SG - Strickland

SF - Piatkowski

PF - Roby

PF - Hamilton

 

I'm fairly confident in saying that this team would of made some noise in the tournament.  Man that team looks good!

Hoiberg’s system:

 

Lue

Strick

Pike

Cope

Roby

 

That would be fun five, but I'd also like Brian Conklin, Cookie Belcher, and Derrick Chandler in that top 8. That would be a great group offensively, defensively, and in transition.
