Should be an exciting game to attend in person. 🎇 Wish I were in the Lincoln area.  😉


btw I saw this post elsewhere I thought worth repeating.  :ph34r:


This game is crucial for Husker NCAA tourney hopes. Maul ‘em early & no late game letdowns please. Seems simple enough.

as before, the recipe is 

  • secure rebounds - don't let quicker opponents slash into our established space and/or steal the ball off our hands
  • no crazy passes - uncatchable lobs into the paint, attempts to floor pass the ball thru two defenders, lazy cross court passes ripe for interception
  • no freeze ups when bigs get the ball in the paint near the rim - either put it up or pass it back out - don't get tied up or dance yourself into a traveling call
  • make the bunnies.

Decent first half overall. They can't slow down Markowski (almost a double double already) and friends, very much inside. They might start double teaming Markowski.       Our three shots are going in pretty well, but will have to keep it up in the second half.  


But our guards on defense are getting their lunch handed to them. They're getting beat off the ball with regularity. 


Illinois isn't shooting well overall. don't know if they shoot the 3, but so far not so much. If they can pick up their percentages, the game could change.  Expect to see more full court defense by ILL. 


It ain't over. They're well coached...so expect some changes by them in second half.
