  1. Questions: Does anyone know if they are going to put cardboard fans in the seats later in the year and if someone will be appointed to take half of them to the parking garage with 5 minutes left in a game?

    Support for Yvan

    If you want to dump on Yvan, please don’t use this thread to do it. He’s the only available player we have right now who can D up against Big Ten bigs. We need him. I am wondering what the coaches are doing to help him work on his shooting technique. If you have a chance, watch him shoot free throws. Most players (and by “most“ I mean everybody else) will cock the wrist of their shooting hand as they wind up for the shot. Yvan does not. It’s like a straight line from the back of his hand all the way down his forearm. This means he’s shooting primarily with the muscles of his tricep an

  4. While Yvan has a ways to go on his offense, I credit his effort out there. He makes an impact in other ways, with his hustle, his rounding, his screen and rolls, his d. He may never be a double double guy here, but I want to be careful not to be too critical.

  6. Surprised people aren’t discussing Banton more. We have one of the most unique players in the country. He’s special. Truly ambidextrous on the court. Point guards feel for the game at 6’9”. He’ll likely lead our team in assists and rebounds. He also seems like a great leader. Always talking on the court and encouraging teammates.

  10. I am fully expecting McGowens to be N as well and I'm trying to figure out how this will still end in some sort of horrible kick to the balls. After committing, I would not be surprised if one of the following happens: 1) McGownens is abducted by aliens, never to be seen again 2) During a 2021 preseason team building event at Lake McConaughy, McGowens has his shooting arm eaten by a shark 3) During a preseason scrimmage at Prairie View, Cam Mack hits a game winning 3 and shoots an arrow that hits McGowens in the heart. It's 2020 and Nebrasketball, the possib

  11. You're going to get a few of those "Huh?" shots from Teddy pretty much every game. That's just who he is. The interesting thing is, without rewatching every shot, I'd say he's probably shot as well or better on the tougher dribble 3s he's taken than on the catch-and-shoot looks. Had he knocked down a few more of the open C&S looks he got against NDSU he would have had a monster game. Then he goes out and hits that step-back one. Teddy is a tough-shot maker, which he has to be because he's not blessed with elite burst to just blow by guys. That extends to the defensive side where he'll have

    I'm shocked, reading this thread, by some of the apparent lack of reading comprehension on this board. It seemed like one or two of you were being perhaps deliberately obtuse and missing @hugh42's point. It's not a complicated point. It's the Big Ten network. We're part of the Big Ten. We played a game that day. They showed highlights of every game but ours. I don't GAF what our record is or where our basketball program has been historically. It's not about needing to earn it or what have we done lately or putting up and shutting up. We shouldn't have to "win first" in

    Season Outlook

    This is probably the thread to throw this into rather than starting a new one. One of the things that maybe offers the best reason for optimism for this season (and, by "optimism" I don't mean "Sweet 16" so don't anyone get too excited) could be expressed by the following stats: 56.3 23.9 What are those numbers, you ask? The first is the number of points per game our starters have put up in 4 games so far. The second number is our average bench points per game so far. Do not underestimate the value of a guy like Webster who can come in and s

  16. MEH. It was a win...and it likely would not have been last year. Players seemed to realize they needed to feed the beast in the second half, and did so. If the game was a movie title, I would vote for "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. And oh by the way, before others choose to bash Thor, please learn what his role is, what he is being asked to do by the coaches, what his teammates say he brings to the court and then watch the tape and specifically what he is doing within the game. Just saying... And furthermore, this team does not need a volume shooter or a player that de

  18. If BTN didn’t talk about Nebraska in a short halftime segment, then I would assume it was inadvertent or it was due to time constraints. To me, the notion that there is some conspiracy to suppress Nebraska basketball seems pretty ridiculous. It’s odd to me how people in Nebraska always think there is some conspiracy against Nebraska athletics, whether it’s ESPN, or the Big12 Conference, or refs in the Big12 or in the Big Ten, or conference commissioners, or conference schedule-makers, or now the BTN. It’s almost second nature for some Nebraska fans to think that everyone is out to get them or

  20. I’ve also noticed Thor’s frustration a handful of times. And it’s not a “give me the ball because I want to score” thing. It’s more of a “give me the ball because that’s what you were supposed to do in that situation”. Our pace actually seems worse this year, due to not advancing the ball with the pass, not playing 0.5 basketball (a lot of ball stopping) and often times not running the offense in the half court. Remember how many wide open looks we got within the flow of the offense last year? Thor and Haanif got several layup attempts per game just cutting to the basket and receiving a pas

He said he'd ask but as of 5:30 on Monday when I followed up, he said he still didn't have clarity. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Support for Yvan

    I think the coaches need to have Yvan focus on his role and how he best helps the team. I see a Ben Wallace (minus the shot blocking) type role. Yvan likely will never have good hands or develop a strong post game. What he does bring is a strong body and a good rebounding presence. Yvan helps the team most when he is crashing the boards. If he gets and offensive rebound and it isn’t an obvious dunk, know your limitations and kick it out. I have always been a play to your strengths advocate. Yvan does have a few tools where he can help. And frankly nobody else on the team has

  26. I am very impressed with our team defense and defensive intensity. At various points during the first three games you can see when we ratchet up the intensity and swarm our opponents. This has led to much easier offense on the other end. We still do not have the look of a great half court offensive team. So maintaining defensive intensity and getting easy transition buckets is going to be key for this team going forward.

    You guys are missing the point. We are a member of the Big 10. The game was on BTN. We are relevant because we are a member of this conference. No one on this board is acting like we have done something great. It just seemed odd to me is all.

    Bryce McGowens is N

    Nebraska Basketball gains the commitment of the first 5 star freshman in school history as Bryce McGowens chooses the Huskers over Georgia. The combination of family connections (will play alongside brother Trey next year) and Fred Hoiberg's fast paced offense proved to be an offer to good to pass up for McGowens, ranked in the top 30 for the class of 2021 by most national recruiting services. The 6'6" McGowens is noted for his size and skill combination and deep shooting range Initially signed to Florida St, McGowens decommitted in October of 2020 and Nebraska immediately entere

    From what I can tell, the top of Eduardo's head is just about in line with the bottom of the backboard off to his left. That would put him right around 9' 6" or so. Looks like we're gonna have a pretty tall team this year boys!!!

  32. Gaaaaa! Can we get an inside game, please? I get the idea of drawing the opposing team's big out to the 3-point line where maybe they aren't so comfortable. And opening up driving lanes. But that only works if you're hitting shots. And to have a 2-point lead with under a minute to play and being outscored 5-0 to end the game is not how I would have drawn things up. I don't know if Walker or Andre give us an inside offensive presence or not, but neither Lat nor Yvan do.

    I find it difficult to criticize Thor. There will be games where we need him to score, and he has proven he can do so. There is a reason he is out there...simply listen to the actual coaches...and his teammates

  35. I'll take a stab at this starting 5.... Cain, Bourne, Haiby, Porter, and...Dillard or Brady (hedging my bet) Expect to see a different Cain and Bourne. Cain because she's a senior, and she takes the team leadership role. Bourne because.. see her as really improving over last year. She's not a rookie any more and will be one of the team leaders. Expect her to be more dominate. More than anything just can't wait until Fri night ! Expect a different attitude and excitement

  37. We need to get beyond settling for early 3's. Our 3 point shooting seems to improve when we penetrate and either take it to the hoop or kick out for a three. Also, this team is relatively unselfish which provides clear shots AND we do not have multiple players who can't shoot. Husker fans have appreciated these "glue" players. But we are learning that you can be a glue player and still be a good shooter. By the way kudos to Doc, he has this team playing some d.

  43. Creighton getting that game at home on a Friday instead of at the PBA on a Saturday gives them an extra day before they have to start league play against Marquette on Monday. It's clearly in their favor. I think you can argue that having that game at home for our 2021-22 roster is clearly in our favor. We also don't have to wait until 2022 to have a crowd vs the Jays. Seems like a win-win here.

  46. This kid's shooting ability is transformational. We'll have one of those guys who, like so many other teams have, when he gets in the game, has the ability to get you that 3-bucket when you gotta have one. Have no idea what his minutes will look like, but he'll maybe come in off the bench and if he's hot, they'll feed him till he drops. He's a kid who could literally score 12 points in just 5 minutes of playing time. So, the other team wants to play zone, huh? We'd like them to switch to man.
