HC Fred Hoiberg
(my notes in italics)
- We have a game lined up for Nov 25th and then 2 games lined up for the Golden Window Event. Seeing that the team for the 25th will be McNeese St. We also have Creighton and Georgia Tech which means there should be 2 other games, assuming a 20 game conference schedule.
- Waiting on the Big 10 and then hoping to announce the schedule in the next 24-48 hours. Wonder if some of that delay is either for the number of games or else when they will be played.
- Had an inter-squad scrimmage with B1G refs last week and will have back-to-back scrimmages this week to prepare for the season. Teddy Allen put up 29 points.
- Keisei Tominaga: HCFH thinks he'll be one of the best shooters in the country next year. Impressed that even though he's the focal point of the opposing team's scouting report where teams don't leave him and he has to take difficult shots, he still made them at a high percentage. He's played on a high stage so D-1 won't be too big of a moment for him. He's an incredibly popular figure in his country. Name is pronounced 'Kay-Shay'
Wilhelm Breidenbach: Told a story about WB standing out among a group of top recruits at one of the first events they had went to as part of the Nebraska staff. He's a guy who is 6'10" , incredible passer who can pass with both hands, can pop to the top of the floor and knock down shots, can initiate offense, and has a high motor.
Bryce McGowens: Talked about how this was a program changing signing and how Trey McGowens was able to sell him on what Nebraska has to offer in staff, facilities and playing style.
Always worth a listen because it gives you insight into why he's such an elite recruiter. He's mostly painting a vision here but otherwise here were the few things that seemed the most noteworthy
Needed a translator initially with Keisei..."didn't speak a lick of English". Was impressed that he was able to make the transition from Japan to Ranger, Texas and still play at a high level.
Wilhelm brings the skill and versatility at the center spot that Nebraska needs to execute the offense at a high level. At this point he's not even close to reaching his potential.
