    Hoiberg Presser


    Kavas Presser


    Hoiberg talks about the challenge of playing on the road and playing two games in less than 48 hours. Players practiced well but don't know if that will carry over. 


    Players to watch:   Trayce Jackson-Davis

    Freshman PF Jackson-Davis is the biological son of former NBA player Dale Davis as well as a high school McDonalds All-American who thus far has lived up to the hype at Indiana. TJD leads the team in points, rebounds, FTs, and blocks. Nebraska is going to be in trouble if they can't deny the talented frosh the ball


    Players to watch:   Devonte Green

    Indiana isn't a great shooting team so it's Senior  combo guard Devonte Green along with guard Aljami Durham keeping defenses honest by shooting over 40% from beyond 3.  The streaky Green should have plenty of open looks tonight with the Huskers packing in the lane...hopefully he will not connect


    Roster points

      PG SG SF PF C Pct
    11 Devonte Green
    6-3  185  Sr
    1 Aljami Durham
    6-4  185  Jr
    3 Justin Smith
    6-7  230  Jr
    4 Trayce Jackson-Davis
    6-9  245  Fr
    50 Joey Brunk
    6-11  245  Jr


    The Hoosiers play 11 guys so you'll see lot of different lineups tonight


    • Durham as mentioned above is a very good shooter
    • Justin Smith slides into the 3 for this team and has been very efficient as a secondary piece in the offense
    • Brunk played for Butler last year and has trouble against athletic bigs. Yet another rebounding force
    • Soph guard Rob Phinisee has been out a couple of games with injuries but is back and is a steadying force for the Hoosiers
    • Sr center De"Ron Davis has seen limited playing time with all the depth the Hoosiers have at the post. Same for oft injured PF Race Thompson



    The Skinny:

    Nebraska gets to face an Indiana team they've beaten three times in a row that absolutely knows they've lost to Nebraska 3 times in a row. While their strength of schedule has been so-so, they do have a couple of nice wins over Florida St and UConn.


    This is a defensive team with a ton of height so Nebraska will have to attempt to run them off the court though Indiana has the talent and depth to simultaneously cruise for offensive rebounds as well as get back on defense.  On the other side Nebraska will need to try and deny post entry passes and hope the Indiana guards will just be cold from outside.  Maybe Indiana won't take the Huskers seriously but you have to think losing to a non-blue blood twice in a row at home will be drilled into them.


    Is losing Jervay Green for this game going to befuddle the Hoosiers?  Probably not.


    Prediction: Indiana 87 - Nebraska 65
