    Why the hate

    Teddy Allen is scoring 0.967 points per possession, which Synergy classifies as "very good" and in the 73rd percentile. He's "very good" both in the halfcourt and in transition. He's in the 72nd percentile or better in each of his top four play types (spot up = 1.033 PPP, 72%; transition = 1.173 PPP, 74%; off screen = 1.128, 76%; P&R ball-handler = 0.921, 82%). He's also in the 64th percentile in isolation after that Penn State game, scoring 0.867 PPP ("good"). Teddy is above average at almost everything he does offensively. The man-to-man defense and turnover issues are a prob

    Why the hate

    These are the same people that would go up to him to try to get a photo with him after the game if we had a winning record in the Big Ten. * Correction...these people don't even attend the games; they get their hoops news from social media, look at our record, complain, then move on to something else.

  3. Since returning from his one game suspension, Teddy has been a completely different and vastly improved player. Kudos to the coaching staff for sending the message and bigger props to Teddy for constructively receiving that message. We have seen other players take their imaginary bag of arrows and go home.

  4. Seriously, with the names? At this point of the season, multiple references on this thread alone to "Blanton", and now "Ivan ". Your way of trolling?

  5. Hoiberg made a great decision to bench Allen for that one game. Teddy has been playing great since that game and seems to be playing much better as a team player since then.

    Man, where do you start?

    Regression?!! We had a month-long no-practice hiatus in the middle of the season. Walker didn't get to play in the first half of the season, then played one game before getting Covid. A few other players also got Covid. Now, I know that every one of us geniuses on this board would unaffected in the slightest by a Covid infection. But for a young fella like Walker and other players in that same Covid boat . . . it shouldn't affect their performance or stamina in the slightest, especially when they are playing an actual game like only every other day. They played we

  13. That was just a fun basketball game! Teddy got all the buckets! Andre continues to show flashes of his potential. Trey hit some big shots, but finally got caught with his hand in the cookie jar on that attempt at drawing that foul. Walker does so many little things. Thor hit some big shots coming back from that 10 point deficit. Webster's giving some big minutes, too. but... Nebraskebtall happened. Penn St. played harder and smarter at some key stretches. NU had some sloppy, lazy turnovers at back breaking moments. Giving

  18. We need to have at least 3 of these return: Mayen, Teddy, Walker (all will be 5th year), Banton (4th year). Otherwise, I'd consider it another "rebuilding" team that finishes below .500 in the BIG. As it is, we're going to be starting a freshman (although a very talented one) and maybe a new PG. That is not the formula for a breakthrough year. On the positive side, don't look now but our KenPom defense is down to 50. That's NCAA level. But our offense is an unfathomable 224, between Morehead State and Purdue Fort Wayne.

    More stats of 1st half for you. Teddy - 11-14 fg, 3-4 3pt, 0 TO Team - 4 -15 fg, 1-8 3pt, 9 TO Teddy was not the problem.

  24. I get so tired of us occasionally beating teams that are better than us and then losing to teams we should beat. We seem to always play to whatever level our opponent is. My biggest beef is our post defense. Why are our posts continually coached to let our opponents post up down low every time??? We give them perfect position every time to shoot an easy layup or we foul them. They should be either fronting them or at least playing on their side to deny the entry pass. I wish Cain would be more of a consistent player. She'll have a good game and then disappear for a couple of

  25. From the New York Times, Feb. 9, 2021. A short excerpt: I don’t remember when I first learned about semicolons, nor do I have a mental list of remarkable semicolons in literature. I don’t want to have to treasure them, though the typical advice for writers of all levels is to use them sparingly, as if there’s a limited supply. This only breeds fear, which in turn breeds stigma: Semicolons are ugly, pretentious and unnecessary; they immaturely try to have it both ways. There are so many things to fear in life, but punctuation is not one of them. That semicolons, unlike m

  28. Really? Postseason in 7 of 9 years? 4 NCAA Tournaments, wins in 3 of them and they were poised for a decent seed last year. He's made it work at a pretty high level for quite a long time now. Garza maybe takes it to another level, but they were winning pre-Garza, too.

  30. Being that all of Fort's shot were from beyond the arc, I would guess 55 or so. How many career points would he have had, if he had the arc and played varsity his freshman year?

  31. If nothing else, that was an entertaining game to watch and a glimpse of what the Hoiberg offense is supposed to look like when shots are going in. I did unfortunately lie to my kid last night. When Teddy had 20 points ten minutes into the game, he pronounced that Teddy was going to go for 40. I told him that if he did that, there's no way Nebraska loses. He reminded me of that fact after that game and I told him I could have swore I said 45 points. Ok, I lied to him twice

  37. She seems to be one of our better passers. She doesn't panic, and finds the open player. We might want to use her more when teams are applying full court pressure. Handling the press is still a challenge for us. We did handle it better than usual yesterday. They must be working on it. I also liked the inbound plays under our own bucket. We didn't make them all, but the design was good. For a brief time, late in the game, it looked like the players were instructed to run some clock. That didn't work. We're not good at it. Penn State cut into the lead immediately. Thank goodn

Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and runoff into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my computer, I wonder: “Did little demons get inside and type it?” I don’t know! My primitive mind can’t grasp these concepts.

  47. Thanks Sam!!! I liked Matt & Jeff's interview with Coach Amy Williams, Kate Cain & Issie Bourne immediately following the Northwestern Game, where they cited unselfish play and the team playing for each other. Issie particularly spoke of their building a non-selfish culture and the importance of having confidence in themselves and each other. Kate said everyone needed to pick-up their rebounding with Bella being out of the game. When talking about the win, Kate said something like: "We were just kind of sick of Losing! .... We didn't want to Lose another game!"
