    • #24 Huskers overwhelms Missouri St 85 - 62

      Nebraska takes care of business as expected 

       

      DsZ_VntUcAEBVv9.jpg:large

       

    - I'm cool with the increased emphasis on taking 3's, but let's not settle for them. Felt like we did a lot early.

    - Glynn got a little sloppy at times, which was a little uncharacteristic.

    - But man, his shot is on point right now.

    - Husker defense is really good. Missouri St. had trouble getting any good looks. Everything was contested.

    - Palmer's got a little hitch in his stroke from deep.

    - Super solid minutes from the bench, all four of them.

    - Copeland was a huge matchup problem for Mo St.

    - It's fun to have more than one scoring option on the roster.

    - Liked the press at the end of the half. 

     

    - Glynn has been the cutstopper this year.

    - Free throws, ugh...

    - Allen's defense has been a nice revelation so far this year.

    - Mo St. is pesky.

    - I'd be cool if the coaches told JPJ to not take another 3 for the next few games.

    - So far on this season, Cope has looked more like an NBA player than JPJ has.

    - I like a lot of what I've seen from Nana so far this year.

    - That roby block and Nana 3 in transition is the kind of thing that demoralizes teams like Mo St. 

    - NU went on a 12-3 run after that. If Mo St. throws that thing down, they're energized, down 11 and you ever know. Instead, NU hits a transition 3 and is off to the races.

    - This is kinda what you expect in a game like this. Mo St. was hungry early and hung on, but NU's depth and talent was just too much in the end.

    - NU will get a chance for a really good win tomorrow, regardless of opponent.

    One thing to note however is that Roby doesn't HAVE to be the man this year.  He is probably our 4th option right now.  Be interesting to see next year when he could and will have to dominate sometimes.

    This team is fun to watch.

    Nice to see the press cause some issues.

    When this team plays unselfishly they really flourish. 

    This is a win that won't be noticed on Selection Sunday but a loss would have possibly hurt. Hopefully we are worried about seeding and not the bubble.

    I know it was a long, long time ago, but it was JPJ that made a 3 pointer when Seton Hall had closed to within 2 pts after that fiasco tech.  And it was JPJ that scored 28 in that game (yes, by getting to the rim). But the big shot was the 3 when it matter.  I don't buy into JPJ stock is down because of one bad shooting night.

    Solid team win with another great defensive effort.  We are hard as hell to score on consistently.

     

    Healthy Copeland sure looks like our best player so far this year, and Glynn was leading with confidence again.  Cope has the most underrated leaping ability ever.  

     

    Not worried about JPJ.  They were set up to stop him defensively.  He had very few iso opportunities and found his teammates.  

     

    Roby found the real Roby again late.  He needs to be the right place, right time guy for this team.  Points will come, but he’s special defensively, on the glass, as a passer, and in transition.  He needs to stay agressive in those ways.  

     

    Unsung hero:  Tanner.  He gave us fantastic minutes in the first half on both ends.  Great leadership and toughness.  

     

    Outside of JPJ’s offense, basically everyone else was pretty solid.  MSU will beat some teams this year.  

     

    Tomorrow is huge.

    1. as others have said, so happy Nana stayed, he’s a real option off the bench gives us some solid flexiblity as he’s a shooter, but also very athletic and can take it to the rack and get some good boards. 

     

    2. Allen is going to hurt some teams feelings this season, you D up on Palmer/Copeland and they find him and he just buries 3’s. 

     

    3. I’d like Palmer to take a step back while he figures out his shot ( that hitch is baaaaaddd) and let Roby get some more iso looks. He’s not agressive but we’re also not getting him looks in advantageous positions, he’s more than a rim runner. I want to see him be put in a playmaker spot. Honestly like to see him run some Point -5 when Watson needs a blow.

    It’s awesome having a team with multiple players that can carry us. I remember one season that if Larry Florence didn’t get at least 21 or more, we were gonna lose by a lot. This team has much better balance than perhaps I originally thought. Nana and Tom have shown the ability from three so opposing teams can’t leave them wide open.

    i love me some Roby, but he just seems way too laid back at times, wish he would play aggressive offensively all the time. Still, if he plays solid defense, that’s great too.

    Watching the Tech vs. USC game right now, our bigs are going to be seriously tested tomorrow night.

    Roby hasnt looked like a first round pick to me at all this year, EXCEPT for that stretch late in the second half where he was aggresive and looked so powerful and quick. That spin he had on his way to the basket was niiiiice. Dudes who are 6'8 and 230 cant usually move like that.

     

    That Roby is definitely an NBA player

     But we need to see that Roby more often.

     

    Glynn and Copeland are playing great bball right now. James not so much, i liked how he deferred to his teammates in the second half and picked up some nice assists.

     

    Nana is gonna be our spark plug off the bench. No other bench player is capable of scoring more than a couple points at the moment.

     

    Tom Allen hit some threes and collected FIVE steals. Thats awesome.

    This isn’t meant to be a knock on Roby, merely an observation, but right now he reminds me of a poor man’s Scottie Pippen minus the offensive game. He needs to look for his shot more & start finishing when he’s at the rim.

    Here's to hoping that Tech and USC play five overtimes!!!  

     

    Solid win tonight.  Thought Palmer really played within himself in the 2nd half.  He clearly has some mechanics to tweak on his 3 point shot and I am pretty sure he didn't chuck.up a three over the final 10 minutes or so.  He did a good job of facilitating in the 2nd half knowing he wasn't shooting good.  I think that mentality can help dispel the notion that he is going to be a me first player and try to get his to the detriment of the team.  He showed a lot of maturity to me tonight.  I love this team.

    Nah, I want the test. I want to see what they've got.

    T. Owens ate our lunch at the rim last season.

     

    Mooney scored 18 on Nebraska 2 years ago.

     

    Either team will be a good test tomorrow, most complete teams we’ll have played by far.

    colhusker is happy with the win.  Am a bit concerned that we got beat off the dribble as often as we did.  Some may be the scheme we use, some may have been MO State's quickness.  We got a lot of fouls reaching to block shots after getting beat.  Love that despite our best player struggling big time tonight we beat a decent team by 20.  Think we are going to have a fun season.

    USC lead by 9 at half. TTech came storming back to tie the game at 44 with 11:25 left. Should be a challenge tomorrow no matter who we face.

    Tied at 52 with just under 8 to go.

    When USC played tight defense, Tech struggled. Hope Nebraska is dialed in and ready to play defense on 1-5.

     

    USC wasn't dialed in much

    Tech it is, winners over USC by 15.  They were down at half by 9 and came storming back in the 2nd half.

     

    This is who I wanted us to play.  Not overwhelming length, which has given us troubles in the past.  This should be a good match-up for us.  Really good test to see how good we are on a neutral floor against a likely tournament team.
