Possible Lineups (Horned Frog)
Possible Lineups (Huskers)
|C||Jorge Brian Diaz||6-11||Jr.||11.1|
The Super-Short Hey I'm travelling edtion!
Opposing player to watch - Hank Thorns
This is going to be the Cookie Miller sized terror on the court probably making us wish we had another Cookie Miller....he will be shooting the ball at will from the 2 and 3 while occasionally getting his teammates in the mix.
Opposing player to watch - Adrick McKinney
Here is the obligatory 6-8 260# guy that Ubel needs to keep off the boards. He's not the best player on the team but he's probably the type of body we also covet.
TCU wasn't looking to go to the Big East...they were looking for a way to move into the haves of the BCS in order to capitalize on the football team they have built. However, when the Big 12 came knocking...well, smell you later Big East. The unstable Big 12 is a much better fit than the unstabler Big East and travel. Throw in old friends Texas, Texas Tech, and Baylor and it was a no brainer.
I cannot find any information on TCU from a fan perspective....it's almost as no one cares about the sport there at all.....and this is mainly a football school who is going to be playing in the Big 12. Take a look in the mirror Nebraska to figure out who we're playing.
Much like Nebraska, the Horned Frogs don't run that well of an offense so this could be ugly in general. While they also aren't very careful with the ball, they will turn you over all day if you're not careful with the ball which has been a problem for the Huskers. The keys for the Huskers tonight will be to not give up baskets off of turnovers (don't turn the ball over!) and to keep the Frogs off the line. If TCU has to run offense all night they're going to struggle to score 40.
Prediction: Huskers 65- Horned Frogs 63 with a 39% of hope
