Full of nuggets
Beilein was constantly switching defenses any time the Huskers started to look comfortable
Only the second time they've seen 1-3-1 and Huskers didn't have anyone from the corner scoring. Mentioned wondering about playing the right guys (Fuller?)
Terran was patient and got good looks but all the misses took a toll on him.
Shavon had a bad start but finished well
Tai didn't play well...didn't seem to come back with the same edge as the last two games - Some guys handle success differently...that might be the case with Tai
Miles wasn't surpsised by Aubrey Dawkins, the son of Johnny Dawkins who put up double digits in the first half. Miles tried to recruit him.
Miles was telling Molanri to win on the road you need to set the tone defensively and take care of the ball, play with the lead. Molinari replies "You gotta make shots...one way or another you need to make a certain amount of shots."
Probably played Rivers too long in the first half. Made a run with him but he was winded and his man hit a couple of 3s on him.
Moses wasn't supposed to play due to matchups, specifically Princeton-style teams with mobile 5s. That means you don't see Moses vs Wisconsin or Michigan but you will see him vs Iowa and Maryland. Minny has big 5s plus smaller 4s
Our fouls on jump shoots have been a little up which is part of us closing out shooters. On the we're one of the best if defensive FG%.
Joked about Terran shooting from 30 Ft during Mich St game and how he'll look at Miles after shots now. "If you're going to stare down anyone after a shot I'd rather it be me"
Talked about Avery Harriman and the AveryStrong day
Darin Erstad story
Asked about offensive philosophy: Has had to take what he's given on every rebuilding project but at the end of the day wants a motion offense that attacks the paint in some manner and takes great shots. Team isn't a good motion team so they run a lot of sets that don't include everybody. For example if TP isn't involved in a play he might just be standing somewhere to space the floor for something else going on. People aren't going to leave TP and hopefully that opens things up for someone like Shavon to drive. Would love the have everyone moving without the ball and run motion but doesn't think we're good enough at it. "The guys don't have it in their DNA and it's hard to change that after X number of years." As we go on, we'll build it. Also, we're expelling a lot of energy on defense plus playing some guys 40 minutes so I need to run sets to give them breathers. Running zone can help but the team is much better in man. After the one possession in zone against MU Shavon came to the bench and said "we don't need that zone crap"
Asked about bringing in post players for next year: Talked about Hammond and how it takes time for post players to add physicality (size). Cited Michigan St with top 100 recruits not playing. Talked about Ed Morrow at 6'7" and Michael Jacobson at 6'8" coming in to make an immediate impact next year. Can still play Shavon down low and Andrew White is a terrific athlete on the wing. Still not exactly where we want to be with size.
'I like our younger guys and I recruited them to play. That's how you get a top 25 recruiting class...it's with the idea you are recruiting them to play.'
Miles jokes that he burned his zone offense and the black uniforms after returning home from Michigan, noting that we've worn them 3 times with the others being at Creighton and on the road vs Penn St
