    Valparaiso

    - Lots of fouls means lots of Peltz and Tyrance. Tyrance especially really looked like a walk-on at times. Game looked to be moving pretty fast for him.

    - Ubel is playing pretty well, like a senior should. His back to back buckets after Valpo had cut it to 7 were big.

    - Not a lot of people believe in Almedia. I thought he played pretty well. He's a pretty solid shot blocker, rotated well on defense and made some really nice passes out of the double team. He just needs to convert. I think that will come, he's got the ability.

    - Ray looks so much better than he did his sophomore year. He's always had the leaping ability, we saw some of that, now he's knocking down shots confidently.

    - I didn't know what to expect from this team defensively this year. They seemed to have a good plan vs. Valpo.

    OFFENSE: B+

    Nebraska was remarkably consistent shooting the basketball in this game - the Big Red connected on 50% from the field in the first half, and 53% in the second, for a total mark of 52% for the night.

    Ray Gallegos and Dylan Talley helped start things off for NU early, and for the night, the Husker starting wingmen combined for 33 points on 14-23 shooting. That was nice to see - especially Gallegos hitting a couple of trey's.

    Brandon Ubel got things going in the second half, and the Overland Park senior is our Player of the Game behind 21 points and 12 rebounds.

    Two other things stuck out to me in this game.

    1. It's going to be a LONG YEAR if NU doesn't find a serviceable backup point guard. Either Mike Peltz or Trevor Menke needs to step up, because the Huskers will need 10-15 minutes a night out of the reserve PG.

    2. Andre Almeida looks as if he's regressed from two years ago. That's not a good sign, because two years ago, he was (at best) an average BCS big man. Let's hope its just early season cob webs from missing two years and he'll step it up - certainly not giving up on him yet.

    One common dominator that you'll find throughout this report card is that Nebraska came out tight and a bit sluggish, just like 95% of teams in America do on November 7th.

    However, as the game progressed, and most notably in the second half, the Huskers looked much more comfortable and were able to do whatever they wanted with Midland.

    Offensively, its a bit of a change seeing less structure and more motion. With that said, I'm not implying Nebraska doesn't have a plan offensively, because they most certainly do. But, I think players are allowed more creative freedom and on some nights, that will be a very, very good thing.

    One reason I feel like it won't is because the Huskers solely lack shooters that they need to win against most competition, let alone the Big 10. Its hard to see where the long distance success is going to come from, outside of Dylan Talley, on a consistent basis. Ray Gallegos looked a little more smooth tonight shooting, and we know Brandon Ubel will have nights where he goes Robbie Hummel on us and lights it up from mid range on out, but those will likely be the exceptions more than the norms.

    For the game, Nebraska shot 40% (47% in the second half) but way too many three's for a team that isn't good at shooting from downtown (22 attempts, only 6 connections).

    Nebraska was awful at the free throw line, going 12-22.

    Tim Miles may not win the BiG 10 this year in basketball but he certainly won the BiG 10 baskeball media day this year. Instead of delivering a speech to the media, he took questions and once again won another media gathering.

    Miles snapped a panoramic of the media for twitter

    which in turn started trending, being one of the most popular topics at the time.
