    Southern

    2629.gif

    Head Coach: Eric Henderson
    Location: Baton Rouge, LA
    Conference: SWAC
    Nickname: Jaguars

    Shirt not to wear: Yellow, blue
    Defensive Style: Generate steals

    Offensive Style: Points off turnovers

    Previous history: Nebraska 2-0 vs the Jags with both games coming during the Miles era. 2016 was the 'Jeriah Horne game' which possibly saved Miles from being fired that year.

    Line:  Nebraska by 18.5
     

     

    Players to watch: Jayden Saddler

    The 6'0" sophomore PG is the only key returning player from last year and the offense should run through him though he's seen limited time on the court this season due to foul trouble.  Most of Saddler's shots come inside the arc and he will definitely take mid-range shots if you let him. Last year he was turnover prone so Nebraska should be able to generate points off his miscues.

    Green Presser

     

    Pretty informative from Green. Didn't really lift weights at Juco and after getting pushed around in the first game is taking the weight room more serious. (There is the D-1 adjustment for you.)  Also notes that they reviewed game film about their pace and they're not yet where they need to be.  

     

    Hoiberg talks about the guys hitting their shots in practice, noting that Kavas has hit well.  He expects it to happen soon in a game. When asked about analytics he brought up shot charts for both his offense and defense. Hoiberg values shot selection as much as anything in basketball.

     

    The Skinny: Former Kentucky Wildcats standout Sean Woods was a coach on the rise after building up Miss Valley St in the SWAC and Morehead St into winners until he was basically forced to resign due to allegations of assaulting two of his players. Woods was an assistant in 2017 for Stenson before being hired back into the SWAC by Southern. The roster has undergone a complete transformation as the Jaguars rank 343rd in KenPom minutes continuity. (The Huskers clock in at #352). Much like Nebraska, it's doubtful the Jags have figured things out just yet.

     

    Southern has a couple of guys over 6'9" but realistically it's a shorter team and Nebraska shouldn't be plagued by rebounding issues.  The thing this Jaguar team will do is try and pressure the ball for steals to feed their anemic offense.  The Huskers have protected the ball well the first 3 games though we'll see what happens in what should be their first game against a non-passive defense. 

     

    Nebraska would need to lay an UC Riverside-esque turd to lose this game and frankly this team doesn't seem to possess the type of traits I think will give this Nebraksa team trouble (size, experience, slow pace).  I think that Southern wants to play fast so expect another high scoring game.  Is this the one where the Huskers finally start hitting 3s?

     

    Prediction: Nebraska 94 - Southern  75 with a 99 % chance of Runzas

    Does someone know if I buy the Flo-Sports month subscription, is BTN+ included in that?

     

    It is. So if you can't make it and you're going to buy this anyway, you should buy it for this game as well.

    Thanks!  It might be worth it to catch this game along with the three next week!

    (This is a dated tweet (10/22) but I believe the $12.50/mo amount is incorrect; that is the monthly rate for a one-year subscription. The single-month rate is $29.99)

    It definitely is included. FWIW I watched the southern Utah game through flohoops on an Apple TV and the quality was not great. Paused almost every five seconds for the first 2/3 of the game.  I’m hoping that was a BTN+ issue that night only as I’ve watched snippets of others games and it was fine. Just a forewarning. But I’d say a worthy purchase  if you want those cayman games.
