    CJ can guard too.  Big difference on the defensive end.

    Nebrasketballer reacted to busticket in 2020 SF CJ Wilcher -> Xavier -> Nebraska   
    Granted I have only seen Wilcher in highlights but I am not sure him and Teddy are all that similar other than lack of foot speed.  I would describe Teddy as an unorthodox, streaky YMCA style volume scorer that just gets the ball in the hoop.  Wilcher seems very much like a pure shooter to me, an old school catch-and-shoot SG.  We shall see.  I know I am really excited to see him play in a live game.

    Nebrasketballer got a reaction from Hooper in 2021-2022 expectations   
    I’m not sure if any of this is in response to me, but I’ll give a few responses in case it is.
     
    I like both Banton and Lat and think both will be very important pieces of this teams success next season. I think Lat will start at the 4 spot and I think Banton will come off of the bench. 
     
    “If you want to knock [Banton] out of the starting lineup and give his minutes to someone else, you mind explaining who will grab the boards for us?“
     
    Wasn’t Banton already knocked out of the starting lineup at the end of last season? And the offense looked much better when he wasn’t running the PG and when he was coming off of the bench. If Banton was knocked out of the starting lineup last season with the talent level that was on this team, I don’t think that it’s out of line to think that after adding all of the talent Nebraska is adding to the roster this offseason that Banton will continue to come off of the bench.
     
    And I think Banton is very valuable coming off of the bench as the 6th man, because he can effectively come in and play 1, 2, 3, or 4 depending on the flow of each game, but I expect that he will come off of the bench to play the 3 spot most of the time.
     
    To me, Wilcher looks to clearly be a better shooter than Banton and I think he fits the starting 3 spot much better in Hoiberg’s offense. 
     
    I’ve said multiple times that I think the starting lineup that makes most sense to me for Hoiberg’s system is Trey, Bryce, Wilcher, Lat, and Walker. I think that has a great mix of shooting, length, ball handling, and ability to get to the rim on offense, as well as the length and athleticism across the board to basically switch all screens on defense.
     
    I’m not suggesting that I think Edwards will start in place of Lat at the 4 spot (although I don’t think it’s impossible), but rather I was just saying that I thought it would be a fun option to switch it up with a small-ball option to have a lineup of Trey, Bryce, Wilcher, Edwards, and Walker and that I think I would also be interested to see what Banton could do at the 5 spot in that small-ball lineup in place of Walker.
     
    I think Lat looked pretty good shooting the ball once Walker came into the lineup for the end of the season. One of the biggest issues for him is poor defense at times that gets him into bad position so he gets into quick foul trouble which takes him off of the floor for extended periods of time, which seems to take him out of rhythm. The good thing about the lineup next season is that this team should have enough other shooters/scorers that they can carry that load when he’s on the bench with foul trouble.

    Washut thinks he will redshirt next season, in order to put on some weight and get used to US basketball and more specifically the Big Ten and then be ready to start contributing during the 2022-2023 season.

    I guess I feel like this is kind of bullshit misleading.
     
    I just watched some highlights of a game they had against Sunrise. Sunrise has the #1 PG in the '21 class, and the #11 player overall in Kennedy Chandler. They have the #16 overall player in Kendall Brown. They have the #35 player in Zach Clemence. They have the #47 player in Jaden Akins. They have the #148 kid in Kenny Pohto. They have the #33 player from '22 in Grady Dick.
     
    Sunrise Christian was up 21-11 after 1 quarter and about to boatrace Legacy Early until McGowens kind of got on track. 
     
    You sort of tuck it in there at the end, your comment about the roster disparity -- Sunrise brings Rivals 150 guys in off the bench -- but it matters. A lot. Sunrise has 5 top-50-type players. They can sell out on defense guarding McGowens knowing no one else can really hurt them too much. You can't show those numbers and suggest that it's somehow a reflection that Bryce is just a high-volume, low-efficiency shooter, when it's basically him against those guys.

    Nebrasketballer got a reaction from REDitus in New rules?   
    If teams were able to decline free throws in the final 2 minutes, that would be interesting to see how that would change the defensive strategy of extending the last couple minutes of the game. At least at first, I’m not totally against this, because the fouling at the end of games gets ridiculously annoying.
     
    I also wouldn’t mind bumping personal foul limits from 5 to 6.

    Nebrasketballer got a reaction from HolyBobpilgrimage in Keon Edwards is N   
    I agree. I’m ok with holding on to 2 open scholarships this season for multiple reasons. 1) Nebraska does still have Webster and Lakes on the roster, they just don’t count against the limit, so it’s not like they are short handed. 2) Nebraska has depth for a legit 10-man rotation of really high level players in 2021-2022. It’s one thing to leave a couple scholarships open, which makes you rely on sub-par players (like under Miles), it’s another thing to leave a couple of scholarships open when you already have such talented depth.
     
    And with the recruiting momentum Hoiberg has right now, Nebraska will be able to use those two scholarships for the 2022 class, along with the 2 scholarships that will likely open up from Walker and Lat, so Nebraska will have 4 available scholarships to string together a second consecutive really solid recruiting class (I believe Trey will use the extra year of eligibility to play another season with Bryce).

    Nebrasketballer reacted to kleitus in 2021-2022 expectations   
    I don't think people necessarily realize just how good this squad can be in two years because we are outright not used to getting players like  wilcher or keon edwards added as transfers... and having them seem so ho hum boring. 
     
    We effectively got two top 25ish players and a BUNCH of either complimentary or highly talented ones on top of that.
     
    If this team is going to gel into something special in 2022, you will know this year.  Or not.  We may not have gotten a high end calipari Kentucky class but this is a solid level below that.  And that's not being insulting, that's saying it's damn, damn solid.
     
    So expectations?  At this point I think you need to see an ncaa bid or at least a late season run that comes close.  And the talent is there.

    I think it's only fair to their families and friends that they team up in college somewhere that's about equi-distant from their homes. That way no one has to travel too far to watch them play.

    This kid's pretty good. If we're going after him, must mean we think we have room for him.
     
    Point guard/forward? With all the big men, that class could use a point guard.

    This would be an unexpected exclamation point on an already ridiculous 2021 class. Would be awesome to have him at the 4-Spot.

    Nebrasketballer got a reaction from millerhusker in Who goes and who stays in 2022-23?   
    I’m pretty excited about the 2021-2022 season, so I havent put much thought into who will leave after 2021-2022, but Walker has already said he is staying for 2 more seasons, so he will be back for 2022-2023 and I believe Trey will stay for 2 seasons as well. Not sure what to expect with Lat, but his decision probably depends on how quickly Wilhelm develops and if he passes Lat up.

    Yeah, I would love for Nebraska to add him. Plus, added benefits would be that Nebraska needs to be able to start landing top Omaha talent, to open that pipeline up, instead of letting those guys leave the state. Another side benefit could potentially be that if things don’t work out for Sallis in Spokane, for whatever reason, it probably wouldn’t hurt Nebraska to be a school close pretty close to his home and also where his high school teammate is playing ball.

    If I was going to visit Ohio St, I would want to do it in the fall too, so I could get a sideline seat to a football game. They play Oregon at home on September 11. That would be an awesome game to see.
