    Scouting Maryland

    It is easy for us to forget that. Imagine being a Maryland fan. Nebraska is a ranked team that comes into your gym tonight with a starting five that is considered by some as the best in the league: - They have a 6-6 senior guard that is the #2 scorer in the conference at 19.6 PPG, and is a returning 1st team All-Big Ten player. He is an efficient scorer, gets your team in foul trouble, and is an 83.5% foul shooter. And he plays pretty good defense. Good luck! - Their PG is a 4-year starter that is averaging 13.6 PPG, 4.1 APG vs. 1.2 TOV, and is #6 in the conference in steals. Oh, and he is shooting 43.5% from 3-pt range on the year (which would be 4th in the conference if he had enough attempts). Hopefully you don't have to foul him at the end, because he's 87.5% from the line this year. Enjoy that. - Their 4-man is a former 5-star recruit who is averaging 14.5 PPG and 5.6 RPG, while shooting a blistering 54.3% from the field this season. He's a 6-9 guy who is also shooting 37.2% from 3-pt range. He's Nebraska's most consistent player. Feel free to guard him with whomever you choose. - Their 5-man is a physical freak who is averaging 10.1 PPG and 6.0 RPG, while also in the top-10 in the conference in both STEALS and blocks. He's 6-8 with like a 7-foot wingspan. Maybe you get lucky and he is limited tonight, maybe not. But you have nobody who matches up with him. Nobody does, really. - Their other guard is another former top recruit averaging 8.8 PPG, with a 2.2/0.8 Assist-to-Turnover ratio, and is shooting 41.0% from 3-pt range. He also 3rd in the conference at 1.7 steals/game. - Our first guy off the bench is a 41.3% 3-pt shooter. Good luck, Terps.

    Roby (is Good)

    If you take away the Wisconsin road game where he only played 17 minutes with foul trouble, here are Isaiah Roby's last 6 games: vs Iowa: 30 mins, 17 pts, 8 reb, 3 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO @ Minn: 34 mins, 21 pts, 8 reb, 5 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO vs Rutg: 27 mins, 10 pts, 11 reb, 2 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO vs Mary: 32 mins, 11 pts, 10 reb, 3 blocks, 1 assist, 1 TO @ Illinois: 32 mins, 14 pts, 10 reb, 3 blocks, 2 assists, 3 TO vs Ind: 35 mins, 11 pts, 9 reb, 1 block, 2 assists, 2 TO For an average of: 31.7 MPG, 14.0 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 2.8 BPG, 1.8 APG, 1.5 TPG ...that'll play.
  12. Speaking of Roby, he played a team-leading 35 minutes tonight. His improvement in staying on the court and affecting the game in all the ways he does is probably under-reported.
  13. If we are sitting at 23-8 before the BTT, we might be ranked in the top-25. Historically those teams don’t land that low in seeding because they are passing the eye test. i mean, technically speaking...a #24 ranked team would be a 6-seed, if the two lined up. i know that the committee doesn’t use that info, but I just struggle seeing a top-25 team relegated to a play-in game. I think with 24 wins we are an 8 seed
  14. Copeland had a rebound late in the game that was - dare I say it - mansized. His head looked higher than the rim. He’s a pretty decent athlete.

    With our next win

    So, 5 games left with 4 at home. NU sits at 18-8 (9-4). With one more win, they will clinch a winning conference record. That is RARE for NU BB. Previous winning conference records in the last 35 seasons: 2013-14 (Big Ten): 11-7 [Made NCAA tourney] 1998-99 (Big 12): 10-6 [Made NIT] 1997-98 (Big 12): 10-6 [Made NCAA tourney] 1992-93 (Big 8): 8-6 [Made NCAA tourney] 1990-91 (Big 8): 9-5 [Made NCAA tourney] 1985-96 (Big 8): 8-6 [Made NCAA tourney] The point is, this doesn't happen very often around here. And when it has...it has usually led to NCAA berths. Lets hope that continues. #GBR
