    All I can say is the new guys better be a hell of a lot better than last year's rotation or we're not going to be very good again.

    2020/2021 WBB Roster

    The new roster consisting of 13 players can now be seen on Huskers.com. They have Ashley Scoggin listed as a freshman but she is at least a sophomore. Interesting reading. GBR

    I don't know shinola about the players who haven't suited up for us yet, except for the well-informed gossip on this board. And if that's all I have to go on, and assuming we have 3 sit-out transfers, I think I'm going to agree with what @khoock just said above about Arop, Mayen and Andre having the least chance of starting (or being in the rotation, frankly.) So, starters ... Banton (too much smoke around his name to doubt there's fire there) Webster (someone has to be your primary ball handler and with Mack gone ...) Allen (he got his 4th star for good reason: the kid is a baller who can score at 3 levels) Thor (there might be a lock down in Iceland, but Thor can find a basketball hoop and launch 1,000 treys a day if he wants; he'll be ready) Walker (I'm going with Derrick over Yvan because of athleticism and rumors about his developing offensive game) That's just a wild-ass guess. After that, I've got: Shamiel (is our 6th man) Yvan (gives us good rebounding presence in a reserve role) Wait, there aren't a lot of guards to bring in off the bench if we don't get at least Kobe King cleared. So ... Lat Mayen because he can hit threes? Having said all of this, probably Lat Mayen comes in, takes the world by storm, has us all saying "who the hell is this guy and how did he fall into our laps?" and gives us 13 and 8. OK, probably not, but ya never know.

    Going by the recruiting videos for each, I didn't see Yvan pulling off drives to the rim on the bounce like Eduardo. Eduardo is also a lot quicker leaper from what I've seen. He goes from catch to jump and dunk pretty fast, whereas Yvan has to pause and gather himself allowing the defense time to react and get in position. That makes it more difficult for Yvan to finish regardless of his issues with touch. But, Yvan was so very young. I know, it's a broken record, but it's true. He should have been a HS senior this past season, maybe even a HS junior. There's a LOT of development that could happen between June 1 and November. (It's unfortunate that he missed out on all the post-season individual and small group workouts that the coaches are allowed to have while school is in session.)

    2020/2021 WBB Roster

    Yes, saw that...wow are we a young team! One senior....Kate. But there's a nice mixture of talent on the roster too. Scoggins hopefully will have overcome all the injuries......has been a tough road for her. Can see probable starters......at least what I see as starters. Really a huge mix after that. We'll be starting over as a team. Maybe we needed a change. Not so sure it's such a bad thing really. ...But in the B1G that's a big deal Going to a fun adventure. Coaches have they're work cut out for them. Let the team back on the court gov. !

    Agree with the sentiment here. I don't see how Andre would be a better finisher based on the film I've watched, although he may very well be a better free throw shooter. Yvan plays really hard. I think he'll make some strides physically and offensively in the offseason. That still won't make him a shotblocker or speedster though, and I think Andre has those two things in bulk along with being taller. I could envision scenarios where they play next to each other or neither of them is on the court at all in exchange for someone like Stevenson or Lat at the 5. So many options.

    I think we can expect major improvement with Yvan just because of his age. In the past you could always count on Freshmen improving as they went along in their careers but anymore in college hoops Freshmen are often 19-20 year old men and have played more games than in the past so I don't think you can count on a kid getting a lot better like you could in the past. I think young bigs like Yvan and Andre will develop hopefully into solid D1 players.
