    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: vol 12; ed 14 - vs. Rutgers

    Sign in to follow this  

    This one was pretty ugly for NU, pretty much across the board. Didn't shoot well from anywhere. Got eaten alive at the rim on both ends. Low energy. Just not much good to say about the Scarlet and Cream. The Scarlet Knights, on the other hand, look really good. They've got a lot of skill and size. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people are surprised come the first weekend in March and they're sitting at 14-6 with two byes in the conference tournament. Especially if they get Geo Baker back soon. I like a lot of the pieces they've got going for them right now.

     

    I think we'll see more nights like this for NU, though. With their lack of size, there will be several teams that push the Huskers around.

    It probably didn't help that we couldn't stop dribble penetration, but I was surprised that we didn't see a similar game plan to the Purdue game. Especially given the fact that Rutgers is loaded in the post like Purdue, and that they are a worse 3 point shooting team than Purdue.

    Rutgers has this sophomore kid who's 6'11 and has a 7'7 wingspan. Did I mention he's a sophomore?

     

    He shoots jump hooks just the way @Dean Smith described them. His touch is deft enough that he was able to hit 9 of 13 shots, all in the paint. Some of them were dunks, of course. But if he got within 10 feet of the rim, he was pretty effective with that little jump hook. He also had 14 rebounds and a couple of blocks.

     

    I don't think he had to chase anyone on the perimeter. Our guards were horrid from 3-point range. Our big men were worse. So, if we have a big man sitting at the end of the bench in a sweat suit who can knock down some threes next year, it'll be an improvement over anything we have right now.

     

    We'll see. I kinda like what I saw from the Rutgers kid. It would take a lot of threes to make up for 18 points and 14 rebounds.

    Yeah, I liked a lot of what I saw from several of the Rutgers guys. If Banton and Stevenson are as good as we are told they are, that will close the gap in a hurry. Will it close it all the way? We'll see. Another 10-15 pounds on the French freshman we have that you love will go a long way, too. Same goes from the Arkansan.

    The first key is to have guys that can shoot, we don’t. Creighton does this very thing and buried Marq, they sat there bigs because they were getting burned.

     

    Found it interesting Marquette’s bigs were NU targets Joey Johnson and Theo John, along with Ed Morrow.  Oh, and Thurl Bailey’s kid.

    Question for someone who knows more about this than I do...

     

    How much can Arop play and still redshirt this year? Is he already past the point where he could still redshirt? 

    He looks very athletic and seems to be able to hit 3's at a high percentage in the pregame warm ups...

    He's already played in a game so he can't this year. There's an exception when it comes to claiming a medical redshirt if the injury occurred early in the year (not sure on the exact number of games) but since there's been no injury and we're already into January he wouldn't be able to.

    I think its like the first third or first quarter of the season.

    I dont know about the men, bit on the women's side. They can play 9 games and still redshirt.

    Jordan Bohannon played in Iowa's first 10 games before shutting it down because of his hip injury, which he sustained last season.

    So maybe its if you have played less than a third of the season and then have a season ending injury, you are eligible for a medical redshirt.

     

    The women play two less regular season games than the men, correct? If that's so the nine games for women and ten for men seem about equal to a third of the season.
