      Isaiah Roby scores a career high 19 points as Nebraska celebrates the Barn's 90th birthday with it's first conference road win in Minnesota.

    Thoughts during the game. A bit of a stream of consciousness effort today.

     

    Pregame:

    • Michigan lost. Grrrrr….
    • No Amir Coffey. Hopefully that’s a break NU can take advantage of.

     

    1st Half:

    • That was the exact start I was afraid of. Not sure what Watson was doing on that first possession. He got a wide open look and just biffed it. Minnesota came out on fire, which I was a little worried about.
    • I liked the time out and response, though. A nice 11-2 run to respond was really encouraging.
    • Copeland was running the floor really hard. Loved seeing that.
    • Washington is gonna be a good player.
    • It’s fun when we hit from 3.
    • Jordy just can’t handle the ball. At all.
    • Through the under 8 timeout, NU looks like the fresher team. And they’re playing with the urgency that a team on the bubble should play with.
    • Huskers went on a 37-15 run after falling behind 7-0 to start the game.
    • Roby got another #mansizedrebound according to Mr. Bardo.
    • Palmer takes it to the hole like Lance Jeter used to do.
    • I love watching Thomas Allen shoot the basketball.
    • That 3 by Watson with about 30 seconds left was the worst shot we took in the half.
    • Of course Washington hit that 3 at the end of the half…
    • All-in-all, I’ll take that half, but that wasn’t a great end to it.
    • If NU keeps playing hard in the 2nd, they’ll be fine.

     

    2nd Half:

    • The break seems to have done Gill some good.
    • Minnesota came out of the gates attacking. We’ll see if they can maintain it. I’m skeptical.
    • The Watson to Roby lob was a work of art!
    • JPJ was short on a few free throws tonight. Didn’t really expect that.
    • The bulk of that run by Minnesota to get back in the game was with Watson, JPJ and Cope on the bench.
    • Foul trouble for JPJ is problematic.
    • I like how Roby attacks after grabbing the rebound.
    • The Pitino technical foul killed all their momentum. NU went on a lightning quick 6 point spurt after that.
    • Evidently Pavelka called Pitino a “jack wagon” on the broadcast. lol
    • We had some timely offensive rebounds.
    • Taylor hit a couple of clutch shots, too.
    • I don’t know how Washington hit that shot around Roby. Circus. If he can find an outside shot, he’ll be impossible to guard. He almost is already.
    • I know they shot the ball fairly well, but 21 attempts from 3 is too many.
    • WOW! What a fortunate shot from Taylor on that broken possession. Huge play!
    • Roby with all the dunks!
    • They’re breaking the press a lot better now than they did in November.
    • NU had an answer for every Gopher challenge. Really impressive, actually.
    • To get 93 with the foul trouble JPJ was fighting is pretty impressive.

    If we end up playing Minnesota in the tournament I will have a page that is nothing but a button with a picture of Pitino that plays "jackwagon" when you press it.  Otherwise I think we don't want the Gophers to fire this guy for a while.

    A few things that bothered me and we need to tighten up:

    1)  For the life of me, we don't defend a strong big man worth a crap.  Our staff needs to coach how to FRONT THE POST!  We get demolished inside by big guys with decent skill and we have to put a stop to that.

     

    2)  Evan T. played great, but we have to be careful on letting him shoot too much.  His shot is below average and I just don't want us getting into the trap of him having a green light.

    Murphy got away with two pretty obvious hooks one of which lead to a no call on the play the pitino got the T. I’d like to see roby learn how to take the flop charge when he’s getting backed down that we saw so often called on jordy earlier in the year.

     

    really disagree w your take on Taylor too. His off the bounce pull up game is probably the best on the team and his three point shooting although a small sample size is currently sitting at 50%. Id argue he should be shooting more of the catch n shoot type shots that he normally makes the extra pass on. ( I don’t know much about Taylor before he got to Nebraska but in my mind the strides he’s shown in two years can be attributed to the coaching staff )

    Here is a list of things Nebrasketball has never done since joining the Big Ten and what we've crossed off that list this season:

     

    Beat Michigan anywhere

    Win at Michigan

    Win at Madison

    Win at Minneapolis

    Win at Purdue

    Beat Maryland at home

    Palmer went 10-13 last night at the FT line

     

    Single Season Record

     

    FREE THROWS MADE
    1. Jack Moore (1980)...................................................... 184
    2. Terran Petteway (2014).............................................. 167
    3. Dave Hoppen (1985) .................................................. 164
    4. Dave Hoppen (1984) .................................................. 158
    5. Aleks Maric (2007) ..................................................... 147
    6. Bob Gratopp (1969).................................................... 141
    7. Tom Russell (1962) ..................................................... 140
    8 Shavon Shields (2015) ................................................ 139
    9. Tony Farmer (1991) .................................................... 137

    9. James Palmer Jr. (2018)........................................ 137

     

    That record is within reach.  Not easily.  But if he averages 8 made FTs over the next 6 games, that would put him at 185.

    That three-pointer Evan drains near the end of the game, with the clock winding down and chaos everywhere, is pure genius.

    The long layoff since the last game didn't beat us this time.  But it, truly, has been a problem in the past -- especially in December.  Here are a few examples.

     

    Last season:  After losing at Kansas on Dec. 10 (and playing them even in the second half), we lost to Garner-Webb on December 18 at home 70-62.

    2015-16:  After beating Rhode Island on Dec. 13, we lost at home to Samford on Dec. 20 by 69-58.

    2014-15:  After beating Cincinnati at home in overtime on Dec. 13, we lost to Hawaii 50-42 in the Maui Classic on December 22.

     

     

     

    Eh, those were all finals week situations.

    He's going to have some extra credit work because we will play at least 7 with either the NCAA or the NIT tourney looming in addition to the potential for multiple B1G tourney games.

    Reading this thread is always a nice way to pass a snowy morning after a win. This is one of the first times I can say that everyone who played contributed to the win and none of them had a "down" game. And I would also like to add kudos to the Big Ten Network. While I realize that they are paid to hype the league which signs their paychecks, Bardo and Crispin seem genuine in their appreciation for our team. Since humans still make the ultimate calls on the selection committee and it is impossible to watch every NCAA team play, I would guess that any committee member wishing to see at least a portion of a live NU game might turn to the B10 channel. Those positive comments have to carry a tiny bit of weight to the casual viewer.

    I think he gets there and blows the total shot for a season outta the water. Roby should have a fair shot at climbing halfway up the season blocks total too

    Historically Minnesota fancies itself a "Big Time" basketball program ( I spent 20 years in the Cities) but the results would say otherwise. Injuries and suspensions might cost little Ricky his job, but it certainly cost them a chance at a B1G title. Winning at Williams arena should never be minimized, and scoring 91 on the road anywhere is impressive. Now it's time for some home cookin' and a win over Rutgers.

    Absolutely this.  Williams is a snake pit that I would cherish if I were a Gophers fan.

    We now know that Anton Gill and Evan Taylor give good interviews.  We've had an opportunity to hear them both on the radio in the last couple games.

       1.  Anton Gill:  During last night's post-game, I started listening to a player-interview but did not catch who was talking.  During the interview,  I was impressed with the quality of analysis and responses and wondered who might be talking.  Anton Gill is the answer.  Would like to hear more from him! 

       2.  Evan Taylor.  When Evan Taylor's interview ended after the Wisconsin game, Kent Pavelka suggested that he take up broadcasting.  Then, after last night's game, I heard this reported:  (i) during a BTN interview of Evan Taylor, the interviewer asked if Evan was surprised at Roby's performance; (ii) Evan promptly turned to Isaiah and asked if Isaiah was surprised by his own performance; (iii) Isaiah said, "No"; (iv) then Evan turned to the mircophone and said that he wasn't surprised either, since Isaiah always played that way in practice, and what we saw last night is merely more of the same.  Now . . . that's a clever way to respond!

    Hope he concentrates on getting to the rim for calls, And Plus Ones!

    Interesting, (I don’t know anything about the pre-Jack Moore dudes), but the one who caught my eye was Tony Farmer.  Played on a stacked, best record of all time team and was a power forward...and he’s on this list.   He was a smart, crafty dude.  Really wish he could have played his Sr year (no da).    OK back to the current team subjects....

    Okay had to check into all the stuff about Jack so we can kind compair apples to apples.

     

    79-80 the Huskers played 31 games and ended up 18-13

    Jack was 184-211 for a 87.2% that year

    Looks like we lost to Michigan in the first round of the NIT

    Was 2nd in the big 8 that year, no NCAA bid:mellow:

     

    So now we can get to see how JPJ does the rest of the way.

     

    Kimani FFriend attempted the most free throws in a season with 227 making 115 in 1999-2000 (50.6%)

    We have won 6 of the last 7 games.   Roby and the “small” lineup have been starting for the last 7 games.  Coincidence?

    And the rotation has been reduced to an 8-man lineup. It's clear that Miles & Co. now know exactly how to use all of their weapons effectively whereas before it was a bit of a hit or miss (at times) with regards to rotations.

    We've won 6 of 7 since benching Palmer at Penn St

    We've won 5 of 6 since Jordy came back

    We're 11 of 14 since losing to Kansas and those 3 loses were all against sub 50 KenPom games on the road

    We're also 67-67 ever since Biggs was dismissed from the team.
