Break out player

He had over 100+ 3-point attempts last year. A leash wasn't the issue, it was wild/unwarranted shot selection that was his issue.


He did hit 33% which is okay but not great. Bryce shot close to 150 at a 27% clip.  Lat shot about as many as Keisei and hit just under 30%.  Some guys had longer leashes.

Tominaga was arguably one of the best youngsters at the Asia Cup and not only because of his outstanding statistical output. Yes, the 1.88M (6’2”) shooting guard averaged many points efficiently, but more than that was his display of leadership for Akatsuki Japan. In particular, when Yuta Watanabe was unable to play due to an injury, Tominaga stepped up and delivered with a 33-point explosion on 12-20 shooting, making it the most scored by a player aged 21 or younger in the 21st century.

Hmm, well...we sort of heard something like this before.  All I'm saying is that the proof is in the puddin.  Simply show it on the floor this coming season.

Not to be a downer, but until he can put up numbers like that in games with a Husker uniform on I'm down on him.

Keisei can only be a good player if you are, effectively, running your offense for him or around him. If he's running around and everyone is screening for him, looking for him (ala Steph or something), he can be pretty effective. 

But he's not athletic or strong enough, to be that guy at this level. Therefore he's relegated to standing in the corner or praying bad/forced shots go in. 

KT's playing at the wrong level for his skill sets and body. Not trying to be over critical... I just personally think he was a big miss.

I don’t know.  I look at a guy like Jordan Bohannon…not big, not overly quick but had a significant role at Iowa for 6 years. Play smart and shoot threes when you are open. 

Isn't it sort of "interesting" that certain teams, such as Iowa, Creighton, Wisconsin and many others always seem to have, and make open 3's???

I guess that comes down to teammates and/or teams effectively running an offense.  

At the end of last season we were showing snippets of that concept...but man, it seems to be MIA at Nebraska for a minute or two...

Different players, different positions. Not all unathletic guys are created equal (ha, jk).

Those teams mentioned pass with a purpose, with an intent to create open shots for their teammates. Unfortunately, the last 3 years we've had players that need the ball in their hands (Mack, Teddy, and Verge) which kills any kind of offensive flow/rhythm. Hopefully this new recruiting approach creates a more team-focused style of play which leads to more open shots.
