    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: vol 11; ed 4 - Missouri St.


    uneblinstu
    • #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.

    Amir Harris a sneaky stat-sheet guy. Three boards, two assists, one steal, 13 turnover-free minutes. ShotTracker hates him.

    My TV hates ShotTracker, so it’s a wash.

    Interesting that the attendendance line is left blank. There was probably 5000 people there max.  Come to KC everybody!!!

     

    I even saw some dude there wearing a Creighton shirt, no lie.  We need Huskers to represent and show what Husker Power really means!

    On the bright side Texas tech probably can’t play any better then they did in the second half. Went like 16-19 from the field.   Owens is gonna give us fits, wish we coulda realed him in as a grad transfer. 

     

    This is is a better test than USC woulda been, they are talented but we woulda rolled them they don’t lock in on defense and settle a lot on offense.

     

    pumped for 8:30 tomorrow

    Plenty of really nice hotels in downtown KC. :D  

     

    Seriously, it's a great time!  I drive to Lincoln all the time to go to games, no reason why you guys can't come to KC once in your life!!!  (maybe twice if we make the Midwest regional final this year, LOL)

    My evolution as a fan as the game went on:

    MoSt up early by a point

    Old Jayschool: "Oh, man. This is not good."

    New Jayschool: "Meh. It happens. We got this."

    MoSt cuts lead to 29-26

    Old Jayschool: "OMG. This is that game, right? The one where we f8c4 up against a mid-major, right? ARRGGGHHH!!!"

    New Jayschool: "Hmm. MSU has some fight in 'em. This could be close."

    Roby posterizes some dude and Nana drains a 3:

    Old Jayschool: "Hey, who changed the channel? I wanted to watch Nebraska!"

    New Jayschool: "Yeah. That's what we do now."

    End of game, watching subs play out the string:

    Old Jayschool: (Has left the room)

    New Jayschool: "NEXT!"

    I came to this realization too last night!

    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.

     

    Agree and I think for strength of schedule/RPI purposes playing Texas Tech is far better than USC.  The Pac 12 is going to be down this year and I don't think the metrics will be kind to a middle of the pack Pac-12 team.  Playing Texas Tech on a neutral court will very likely count as a Quad 1 game (win!) at the end of the year as Texas Tech's RPI will likely be somewhere between 1-49.

    Maturity of this year's team is going to win us games we would otherwise lose. Palmer could have easily kept his double figure streak alive but elected to give up the ball rather than force the issue when he finally got some minutes in the second half. Tanner has been a pleasant surprise this year and will keep us from wearing down Heiman by year's end. Tonight's game will go to the team with the most consistency. So far we have been able to avoid those long dry spells which have been the only consistent  part of recent Husker teams.

    USC wasn't dialed in much

    That is sort of the culture of USC basketball.  They often have talent, but simply going through the motions is their M.O.

    I confess, after our game, I spent the majority of my time watching the KC v Rams football game.  But I spot checked the USC v TT basketball game as well.  I must say, I came away thinking that we really should not have a problem with either team.  Meaning, unless we shoot horribly, we should win tonight's game handily.  I know, I know, crap happens; but we truly are a talented team this year.

     

    Side note, did anyone notice the big center for USC?  Nick Rakocevic.  He was a high school teammate of Glynn's.  Go back and take a look at his Rivals photo and compare him to today.  I know we were hoping we would recruit him, but I don't think we ever did.

    ...by the way, I am getting much more comfortable with our depth.

    Isnt that just the best feeling?? Been feeling this indescribable feeling at times this year, even as its early. It's something I'm not used to feeling as a nebrasketball fan. Unprecedented success and expectations! ❤

      The two threes he missed were down and out. 

    Yes they were.  He is already a much bigger part of this team than I expect, and I happy about it

    By the way, I read Chris Heady's write up of the game in the Omaha World Herald.  The following paragraph appeared in the article:

     

    "Over and over the Bears stormed back to keep the first game of the Hall of Fame Classic close. Until consecutive threes from Thomas Allen and Isaac Copeland midway through the second gave Nebraska enough breathing room to survive in a 85-62 win."

     

    Mr. Heady must have watched that game from a different perspective than I did.  Perhaps I am misreading his intent, but I never felt we "survived" in this game.  Whatever.

    Maybe since we played a bad first half offensively he felt like we were struggling.

     

    While I was annoyed we played like crap in the first, I was never scared we would lose

    The Bears "stormed" back?  That's just dumb.  That's "analysis" by a guy who either just plain didn't watch the game or watched it with blue-tinted glasses.

     

    We went up 6-0 to start the game and the Bears strung 7 points together to take a 7-6 lead.  Seven points in a row.  That was the longest scoring streak they went on the whole game.

     

    Here's the amount of our lead the whole game:

     

    1st Half:

     

    3, 6, 4, 1, -1, 1, -1, -2, 1, 3, 5, 3, 5, 7, 5, 8, 10, 12, 11, 9, 8, 10, 7, 8, 6, 3, 6, 7, 10, 7 half time

     

    2n Half:

     

    7, 8, 9, 6, 8, 5, 8, 6, 8, 11, 13, 11, 13, 11, 9, 11, 13, 11, 10, 12, 10, 9, 12, 15, 13, 12, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 15, 17, 19, 22, 20, 23, 24, 26, 24, 25, 23, end

     

    The only time you could really claim they came "storming" back would MAYBE be the point where they cut our 12 point lead down to 3 late in the first half.  In the second half, we just continued to gradually pull away.

    Lots of Mo State highlights in this BTN video. Maybe Chris watched only this, which features 13 MSU buckets and 11 from Nebraska:

    I just watched the 1st half of that video. An ad was blocking the score button on the bottom ... and now I'm no longer sure we won. 

     

    Missouri St will be able to send recruits that highlight package.

     

    BTN starting its 'positive' vibes toward NU basketball earlier than usual this year.

    I'm guessing BTN dude in charge of highlights a Missouri State alum.
