The above shows the comparative WBB stats this year for 18 conference games with 2 games to go and a 9-9 record versus last seasons 18 game conference schedule with 18 games and a 7-11 record.   I thought it would be interesting to compare the average stats for each season to see if there is any reflection as to why NE WBB has won 2 more games in 18 games than last year.  In comparing the stats for NE and the opponents averages, there does not seem to be any clear cut reason we have won 2 more games in 18 games.  NE has scored more points but so have the opponents so the average margin was less favorable at a negative 3 points.  More field goals have been made by NE with slightly better shooting average of 0.419 versus 0.401 last season.  The same number of 3 pointers have been made at 123 but slightly lower average of 0.388 versus  0.352.  Free throws made are 214 versus 220 last year with slightly less percentage at 0.725.

 

Total rebounds were down from 703 to 701 and rebounding margin was slightly less favorable at -1.8.   Assists were up from 247 to 266.  Turnovers were slightly less at 258 versus 266.  Assist to turnover ratio was 1.0.  Steals dropped from 112 to 70, while opponents went from 133 to 144.  Blocks were slightly less at 106 versus 111.

 

Therefore based on average stats for 18 games this year versus last year, there seems to be no clear-cut positive increases to rationalize 2 more wins.  This years team with multiple newcomers has played very well at times.  Haiby and Bourne overall have elevated their game playing.  Cravens has been a good addition but hampered of late with unable to play.  Cain has had some positive games but lesser ones as well.  Personally, most of the time this team has been more enjoyable to watch.  The team still needs a better offensive scheme and defensively as well!

Shooting seemed a lot more inconsistent last season.

 

Nebraska has been more 'clutch' this season.

 

The difference is a net-positive in 2021.

 

 

It seems to me we've seen the team playing better Together this season than last season, which is surprising given the amount of roster turnover and new/incoming players that have never played together before.   Maybe it's a reaction to adversity of not playing together before, or maybe it's increased emphasis on Teamwork.

and, a pretty young squad. add the incoming for next year and i think it is going to be a very interesting season in 2021-22.

 

has Cain given any kind of hint as to what she will do next season?

I don't know for sure, but it seems that if you are a very bright young lady with a MBA in hand that getting on with life would take priority.  Kate has also been mentioned as a second round WNBA prospect.

yep, i know she has done very well academically. if she would decide to go pro, wonder if it might be advantageous to play overseas? who knows, maybe she would try WNBA and let the chips fall where they may. guessing we should know shortly. a few BT teams have announced returnees.
