    NIT bracket announcement

    Like everyone, I'm disappointed, angry, and confused. This is baloney! Can't help but to wonder what the rest of the story is behind this. I am very proud of all of our kids for the work and efforts they put in. Feel bad for Evan and Anton. A lot of time life isn't fair. I hope that our Team comes together and plays with intelligence and intensity like we haven't seen before. We have an opportunity to prove that we're a good team and I sure hope we do. GBR!

    Favorite Nebrasketball Moments

    Posted Tuesday at 06:53 PM, Lang said: Moody’s running 3 at the end of regulation tied it at 100 iirc. Several players fouled out from both teams. Beat KU on day 2 and lost to Doug Smith and Mizzou in championship game. How about beating ( top 5 ?) Michigan State (same year 90-91) early in the season on Beau Reid’s last second shot at home. Danny’s progress was validated and it was a crazy fun year. That year for me was probably the best. I had been a rabid Husker hoops fan since the early 80’s. It was just this feeling of “we’ve arrived”. **************************************************************************************************************************** We went to that Michigan State game. I believe MSU was rated #4. Their stud player was Steve Smith. After Beau hit the big 3 there was a time out. On the way to their benches for the time out, Steve Smith gave Beau a high 5. I always rooted for Smith when he played in the NBA because of that.
  4. Suppose anyone is named Jack Wagon?

    Favorite Nebrasketball Moments

    March 8, 1991... Nebraska vs Oklahoma in a first round game of the Big 8 Conference Tournament. Nebraska won 117 to 113 in OT. Seems like we had several key players foul out. I may be wrong, but it seems like Keith Moody was one of the reserves that hit a big three towards the end of the game. That felt pretty good to beat OU. GBR...
  7. A shout out to Jordy T. 11 points 8 rebounds. I really like when he seals off a lane when other Huskers are driving to the bucket. Keep improving Big Guy and GBR!

    Minnesota (8-1) vs. Nebraska (6-3) Game thread

    I loved the energy all of our guys played with. Great team win and should help build confidence. GBR!

    Thomas Allen is N

    I like T Allen and all the fellows on this team. I also hope that Big Tate's prediction happens.

    So, next year's starting lineup.

    I believe Watson and White will will be starters for sure. After that it will be wide open until we know our best combinations. Miles will probably start a lot of different combinations, including giving starts and significant time to younger fellows so they are prepared to help in the Big 10 season. Starters during the conference season will probably be the fellows that are hot and match up best. Last year we were soft in the middle, but the guys improved. If the USS Jordy develops well, we could be pretty good in the middle. I expect that we'll improve in the middle anyway because of Jacobsen and Morrow's experience last season. I like our guards, and am looking forward to seeing how Gill and Roby can add. GBR!
  11. I agree with you. Also want to add last year a lot folks were down on Tai. He improved lots this year. He was a slasher, rebounder, and played pretty good defense. Hopefully Hammond, Fuller, the freshman, and all will improve. Sometimes kids are late bloomers and I'm looking forward to seeing this group with the addition of Gill, the incoming freshmen, and hopefully a Shaquille O'Neal clone on next years team. GBR...

    Terran Petteway's Mother has passed away.

    Terran, I don't know if you'll read this. If you do, please know I and many are very sad for you and your family because of this loss. We'll be praying for you. Hang in there...

    David Rivers

    I like all of our players and appreciate their efforts, but I sure like what David Rivers brings to the team. He plays hard all the time. Also, my wife thinks he's cute. Go Huskers!

    I post here because ...

    Compared to the other sites, Husker Hoops Center is the most informative. HHC is well organized, and positive. Keep up the good work and GBR!
