    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: vol 11; ed 26 - Northwestern

    • Nebraska 59 - Northwestern 50

      Isaiah Roby breaks out with 19 pts, 16 rebounds, 5 blocks

    This may have been Roby's Magnum Opus.

     

    - They seemed a little bit to have figured out who they are gonna be sans Copeland. That's encouraging. Don't know if it will be enough or in time to get in the tournament, but there's still something to play for. Huge game coming up on Tuesday.

    - As good as the defense was, the offense didn't have their best day.

    - JPJ seemed to be pressing a bit. Some really bad shot selection. That said, he did have several assists and thought he defended pretty well.

    - Glynn wasn't great, but he at least was taking good shots.

    - Amir's pretty ... "Craft-y". At least he seems like he could be to me.

    - Roby and Tanner were in a real battle in the paint tonight and didn't give an inch. They're gonna need to bring that vs. Penn St., too. That PSU frontcourt isn't a great matchup for us.

    - Vic Law had 10 at half. He scored on an and-1 early in the second and never scored again. They did a great job on him in the second half. Just masterful.

    - Speaking of Vic Law, I thought wrestling moves are supposed to be fouls, not jump balls.

    - Northwestern really turned the ball over a lot. Probably cost them the game. A few real head scratchers, too.

    - Still work to do. Tuesday is a huge game. Happy Valley has been a real house of horrors for NU. Hopefully they bring the energy on the road with them. Some offense would be nice, too.

    - Haven't subbed much in the second half the past couple games. Only 12 minutes total from the bench, I think. Something like that anyway. That might be the formula, the rest of the way. Not sure if we really have any other choice.

    - Personally, I wasn't a huge fan of this years alternates...

     

    Anyway, I hope you all made it home safely.

    A couple observations through the use of photos:

     

    It is easy to question Isaiah's hands or handles given his propensity to dribble into a turnover (at times).  This photo is sort of cool from one perspective.  His hand on this basketball is comparable to my hand on a softball...okay, a volleyball>>>

    I am not sure what the issue is, but it is never good to have your thumb on your shooting hand taped up.  Your grip on the ball could be compromised and depending on the injury, your shot release could be compromised.  Makes me kind of go hmmm.

    I was at the arena, and I have not watched the replay of the game yet, so I have a question.  Tanner was called for a flagrant 1 foul.  The replay at the stadium appears to have shown that Tanner hooked the arm of Parson.  Is that the reason he received the call, or was there something I missed?  Thanks.

     

    Ahemmmm, I guess diving directly on top of a player who has possession of the ball does not only qualify as a flagrant, or as a foul whatsoever.

    First one, yep. Silly call, in my book; that wasn't a "hold" of the hook & hold rule.

     

    Second, of course that should've been a foul. Vic Law had already gotten away with a chicken wing hook on offense yet the D was called for the foul (on the immediate prior play), then the bogus tie-up was whistled.

     

    That was a B1G joke, the second one.

    My understanding is a "hook and hold" is deemed a flagrant.

    It was close, so I didn't go nuts on that one.  I did sorta go nuts when Law jumped on Thor and rolled around on him and they called a tie up.  

    And not sure how they got a tie up out of that? Law didn't get possession of the ball until the whistle had blown.

    This understates how good this conference is. The difference between NW and Mich/Mich St is nowhere near as large as a team like Wake Forest or West Virginia and the top teams in their leagues.

     

     

    I can maybe go along with the Wake Forest comparison but West Virginia I cant quite get on board with. They beat KU. Wake Forest would never come close to even being in a game like that.

     

    And the Big Ten is obviously not what everyone made it up to be in the non-con. I think college basketball in general has very similar parity and there are no real elite teams outside of maybe Duke, Virginia, and Gonzaga. Even Tennessee and Kentucky seem like good but not great teams.

    A-freakin-men.

     

    Can you people acknowledge it might take a game or two to figure out how to win without Copeland?

     

    How we managed to win two games without him is an amazing thing to me. And some of you act like, if we had a good coach, we'd be undefeated or something. Unbelievable.

     

    How ironic if losing Cope for the season proved to be the 'catalyst' that got Roby going. :Drool:

    Yes, that guy was right near us ... in section 119 I believe. He got a talking to by security ... and people were mocking him a bit.

     

    The guy who shouted "shut up" was right in front of us. ha!

    Yeah, I mentioned at the time of Cope's injury that Roby needed to be the one dude on the team to catapult NU back to "good basketball" and Isaiah did that last night.

     

    Palmer's thumb being bandaged isn't a great sign for his shooting prowess, as evidenced by his 3 of 17, with all 3 made shots being layups!

    Think it's something the coach might have added to keep him from shooting so many treys?   (like 'blinders' i.e. 'get thee to the rim, man!  :cool:)

    Yeah, I wish it were the case; fortunately (or would that be unfortunately?), it does explain JPJ's horrendous 37% shooting this season. ((gulp))

    If true, then we should have made the dance last year...

    Well the Big Ten went from getting 10 teams into the dance when conference play started to probably realistically getting 7 in. Teams like Indiana, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Ohio State are not what they were perceived to be earlier on in the year.

    Disagree.  Just because the Big 10 beats each other up doesn’t mean that we aren’t good.  8 teams minimum with 9 possible.

    Right now, Bart Torvik has 8 Big 10 teams in, and NU is the first team out. Win at PSU, and take care of our home games, I think we get one of the last four byes.

    Offensively its been like trying to start my car during that polar vortex.

    Just kinda slushy and not doing much trying and not turning over

    But

    As it warmed up outside

    ie palmer learning to trust his teammates and not forcing so much
    along with some1 actually shooting now it appears

    My car after a couple days in that vortex
    Actually started
    I always knew it was a good car and ran fine just had some record lows
    Its not over till its over
    I'm almost willing to bet
    If I did anyway
    that
    Someone will mess around and get a triple double
    I'm betting its Palmer.
