    Teddy

    Teddy shouldn't be the focus on "what's wrong with this team?" Bart Torvik rates him our most effective player, by a decent margin over Delano and a large margin over Trey. Yeah, his behavior is troubling, but a year ago everyone was convinced that FH would handle him. So he's exactly what we thought we were getting, except now the team is crap and some people are looking to point fingers. We signed up fo: a high-volume, high-scoring player with some baggage. We have one.

  2. - That's a mediocre Indiana team. They have one of the worst offenses in the conference, didn't really shoot the lights out tonight, but still scored 84 points. Our defense has been very poor the last few games. Lat, Teddy and Dalano can't stay in front of people. That's an issue to have them all on the court together. Even Trey didn't have a very good defensive game today. - 16 assists for us. Trey and Dalano did a good job of creating for teammates - 13 assists combined for them. Derrick alone will make other players' numbers look better. - Shon Morris can't stand T

    Teddy is exactly as advertised. If he doesn't fit the system, then why was he recruited? Banton doesn't fit the system either, since he doesn't push the pace and isn't a great 3-point shooters. But they're both good players, so adjust the system to make better use of their abilities.

    Season rides on severity of Bourne’s injury. IMO, Haiby and her are irreplaceable. It is imperative that Brady return soon. If we can defeat all of the teams lower than us and notch another upset or two this season could have a very pleasant outcome. But, it all rests on the injury to Issy.

  6. I'm guessing Hoiberg has a better feel for what's going on in the inner workings of and interpersonal dynamics within his program than any of us on the outside looking in. What does "Hoiberg better start taking notice" even mean? More generally, McGowens is shooting 40.6% inside the arc and while he's shooting well from 3, he's taken twice as many 2s and isn't shooting well from the foul line either. He has 15 assists and 22 turnovers in 11 games this season. It's great that he played really well against a bad defensive team in Michigan State; hopefully that carries forward. But d

    Offense needs to run through McGowens, it was working well when that was happening.

  9. His ability exceeded my expectations and that makes me more optimistic for the future. We could potentially have him for two more years (this year doesn’t count for eligibility right?). A solid post player like him with the McGowens brothers, Dalano and more shooters and we’ll be on the right track.

    Teddy

    He was the catalyst in our second half run against Indiana. For about 12-15 minutes in the second half, I felt like we saw what Fred's offense was supposed to look like, and Trey was fantastic during that span. The spacing seemed to be way better, we attacked the rim, and got some really good looks. While Banton's FT misses killed us, I thought one of the biggest failures in the final 3-4 minutes was that McGowens didn't touch the ball near enough. That failure, along with the missed FT's and Teddy deciding to play hero ball, did us in.

  14. If we pause for the Big 10 required 17 days.... then we're looking at losing 3-4 games. On the flip side... if we get our team quarantine out of the way now, and we're the only team to show up in Indy for the Big 10 tournament... does that mean we automatically represent the conference in the Dance?

  16. I wouldn’t say he’s good on offense. I’d say He’s good at scoring, in a vacuum. But the cumulative effect of how and when he gets his shots hurts us more than it helps us.

  17. 1. Walker might be our smartest player. He’s a basketball player on both ends—strong and athletic to boot. 2. I said I’d wait until tonight to judge the team’s potential this year, but now Yvan is out. 3. Teddy’s defense—effort and execution—is absolute trash. 4. Trey needs to switch permanently to PG all game. We can always run the half court through Dalano but Trey is as good in transition as any guard in the conference. 5. I love the 6’9” - 6’9” PnR. It’s deadly and helps our offense so much with Walker diving to the hoop. 6.

    For those of you that take the OWH there's an article in this mornings paper that includes Prince (freshman) and her Mom. Interesting read telling about the HS team and how young the team is, and how well they're doing for a new team. Read it quick then I had to go off line.

    When Trinity Brady got hurt the first time coach addressed the injury about a week later and said it was day to day. If I remember right she was still on crutches. If Issie is out as long as Trinity we will be in trouble. One Freshman reserve at guard and one Freshman reserve at forward. Good experience for them but not much relief for the starters which includes Ruby starting for the first time.

    Teddy

    FWIW vs top 100 opponents - stats with and without Teddy on the court. This seems to state that we're pretty bad on defense regardless whether Teddy is on the court. Without him offensively we're lost. To me this makes sense when you try to answer the question of 'who do you bring in for Teddy?' because the answer, assuming McGowens and Banton are on the court, isn't anyone who has been scoring against good teams.

  26. There was a stretch where we played Hoiberg basketball and it looked great. Like millerhusker said our defense needs to get better and we gave way to many offensive boards. I did see a team starting to come together though.

  27. It’s disappointing that we’re at a point where an 8 point loss that we were way down and clawed our way back into it leaves us feeling kind of good. There aren’t a lot of winnable games out there for us, but we finally got a team and 2nd half lead that we should have been able to hold.

    Im not saying Walker is the greatest thing since its only his 1st game, but call me stupid cause he looks night and day from Yvan. Seriously from screens, pick and roll, defense, attacking the rim, scoring, he looks like a spark and a vital piece. Something about the way he plays that makes him look like a big 10 player then what we've had

    99% chance of losing, Roby fouls out in regulation, win in overtime...I think I've seen that happen before. Except I don't think the OKC game was won by a guy from Iceland blocking a shot as time expired.

    Teddy

    I don't think it's fair to make Teddy the scapegoat for our troubles. There is plenty of blame to go around. What stood out to me during our run against Indiana was we seemed to be more fluid, have better spacing, and collectively, seemed to be in attack mode more effectively when the ball was primarily in Trey's hands. And I think it benefitted everyone, including Teddy, when that was happening. My question is whether there is a way that Teddy can modify what he does to play within that scheme. Perhaps it comes down to him developing a broader understanding of what he can accomplish, for him

    Teddy

    Agreed. I was saying this in the Teddy recruiting thread when everyone was so heated to get him in a Husker uniform. "Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it". He's no doubt a special talent, but I remain unconvinced that this team is going to go anywhere with him on it. That's not to say that they can't have success, just that I'm not going to hold my breath. He seems like such an odd fit in Hoiberg's system.

  44. SSDD - Bad Missed key FT Watching shot and not boxing out. No excuse for not getting a body on someone. Poor shoot selection at key times Missing wide open looks Not defending the three - yes I know Indiana was not good at it coming into the game but maybe it was because they had a guy defending them that was in the same zip code. Walker is going to be a huge plus be we still need another big bodied dude. SSDD good Walker looks to be the threat down low we've been missing.

  46. Not a great defensive game. I think the scheme was good, Indiana hit shots in the 1st half because we were late getting out on shooters. Need to do a better job of that if we double team the post. For as poor as we played on defense, we played better on offense as we have all year, IMO. Indiana is a very good defensive team. We scored the 2nd most points against them in regulation this season. Penn State scored 80 in regulation. If we play like the 1st half, we are going to finish 0 - 20. If we play like the 2nd half, we have plenty of winnable games.

  47. Turning point in the game was Banton driving to the rim on two straight possessions- getting fouled and only converting 1 of 4. On the other end, Indians scores 5 and we were already down by 2, so the lead grows to 6 and it’s just too much. Mayen can be an elite three point shooter but he is extremely limited in every other part of the game. Shamiel gave us positive minutes Thor looked rusty, or off somehow... Walker brings so much defensively that we didn’t have until now this season.

  48. I mean.... Indiana is 11th in the Big Ten in 3pt % and TJD is averaging 20.5 without making a 3 all season. So the strategy of clogging the lane and hoping Indiana misses doesn't seem all that bad to me. Indiana is 7/9 from 3 right now
