  1. Was trying to decide who i see coming out of that quarter of Thor, Nana, Amir, and Karrington Davis. To put a cap on this thread i thought I would add his final averages. 7 games 25.1 min 9.4 pts 4.0 reb 3.7 asst 1.3 stl 3.4 TO FG: 34.9% 3pt: 33.3% FT: 52.2% *Subpar to poor performances in the first 4 games *Aside from TO's he came on much stronger over the last 3 games * Left a lot of points at the charity stripe 12/23 *Tournament highs were 19 pts, 6 reb, 7 asst, 4 stl, 9 TO *Shooting performance of 7/11 and 6/9 overall and 4/5, 3/4, and 3/6 from deep were the highlights *Not sure how how good opponents were from game to game. Feel free to look up their FIBA rankings and include it if you would like

    Most Improved Player?

    I think Thomas Allen will be the most noticeable from a statistical stand point just bc i think his minutes will double. Could easily see him jump to 8 or 9 points a game. From a talent stand point i want to say Roby. But with so many other weapons and that fact that Roby hasnt necessarily been the most assertive player on the court (even though he should be our second option and one could say first with no arguement from me) I am hesitant to make that claim. However, if we are fortunate enough to have Roby for his senior year i think he will be putting up monstrous numbers.

    The rotation this year

    Heres my take on it: - Starters will be Glynn Watson, Thomas Allen, James Palmer, Isaac Copeland, and Isaiah Roby. Aside from Thomas Allen, they will all average 30-32 min a game. - Dedoch Chan will play 12-15 min a game (essentially Jordys time) - Tanner Borchardt will take Dubys min (3-5 per game) - Two players out of Amir Harris, Thor Thorbjarnarson, Nana Akenten, and Karrington Davis will lock down a spot. Averaging about 15 min each - Brady Hieman redshirts

    Dedoch is N

    But also had 68 TOs to only 40 assists. Maybe wont be as big of a deal as he wont be the focal point of our offense and will often be the 4th or 5th option when he is on the floor.

    Dedoch is N

    Was looking over some of his JUCO stats and it looked like he finished the season with a shooting slump from 3 (0-12 last 5 games). Before that slump he was sitting at 38 percent. ~ Cant remember if this was shared already or not ~

    Dedoch is N

    I think Roby spends more time at the 5 this year than any other player. He will will cause the biggest match up problem for opposing teams while giving up the least defensively.

    Dedoch is N

    Or we're just so good that he gets tons of mop up time or he is just a high quality player and is capable of giving us a solid 15-20 min a game. Thats what im hoping for

    Dedoch is N

    Anybody know what level of competition he faced in JUCO and high school? His numbers are good.

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    Which would probably be a good time since we will be infusing so many new players

    When are we due up for another summer trip? Should be this upcoming summer right?

    Player First Looks

    I was hoping for more of a "Brady looks a solid 230 and Tanner has increased his vertical ten fold," but thanks for the info!

    Whats the skinny on the other 3 players?

    Big Ten Baseball coaching pay

    Didnt realize how low Erstad is paid in terms of other coaches at the university. The head track coach gets like 350k. Amy Williams gets 500+k.

    Agree with brfrad. We have solid talent. Not great by any means, but much more talent than our 4-8 record last year. It sounds as if culture and accountability was extremely lacking under Coach Riley. I see us winning 7-8 games in the regular season. I also think we pull a massive upset against one of the marquee teams we play this year.

    So does the winner and loser of both Neb/Missouri St and USC/Texas Tech play each other?

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    Being that we play 20 conference games, i hope the next two are cupcakes. We need games for Thor, Nana, Amir, and Davis to get their feet wet and sort out roles.

    Top Nebrasketball Dunks

    I know this wasnt a successful dunk, but oh so close: Walt P's almost dunk against Ohio State in the BTT quarterfinals. I think we were up like 18 at the time. If he would have jammed it home im calling game over. That failed reverse dunk was a big turning point imo. *Im fairly young, so i dont remember too many seasons of Husker Hopps before Miles arrived*

    Jordy Gone

    If only we could morph Heiman and Borchardt into one player.

    Jordy Gone

    No way this parting was mutual. Him leaving puts us in such a bind at the moment. Were down to Roby, Copeland, Tanner, and Hieman in the front court.

    Jordy Gone

    He was sidelined for a month from a clean up procedure in one of his knees.

    Glynn

    Is Brady Hieman #40 in red? Or is that someone new?
  23. This is something I did the first couple years I was on the board, and the other thread about Power Rankings from the Tim Miles era got me thinking alot about this years roster. Who is the best player? The most important? Etc. Below is a 1-15 Power Ranking of our current roster (walk ons and RS included): 15. Karrington Davis 6'6 Fr G/F: Not much is known about him due to injuries and playing his senior season on a stacked super team. Add in his potential academic issues and its hard to predict what his role will be on a very experienced and talented team. 14. Johnny Trueblood 6'4 Jr G: Great team guy but does not do any particular thing well. Because of that he will most likely be Bench Mob Captain. 13. Brady Hieman 6'10 Fr F/C: Likely redshirt candidate. Not big enough to play the 5 and not talented enough to warrant minutes at the 4 over Copeland/Roby. 12. Justin Costello 6'2 RFr G: Excels at shooting. May be lacking else where but theres always a need for dead eye shooters. Spent last year redshirting and hopefully getting stronger, faster, and more explosive. Outside shot of playing. 11. Tanner Borchardt 6'8 Sr C : Contributed last year and had some bright moments. More than likely lacks the mobility and lift to play an increased role but is a great practice body and emergency back up for a team lacking centers. 10. Dachon Burke 6'4 RJr G: Sitting out this year as a transfer. Has huge potential to help the team from the scout team. 9. Amir Harris 6'5 Fr G: Late addition to the team but still a very good player. His impact depends on how the staff uses Thomas Allen. Could play off the ball. Improved outside shooting would enhance his role. 8. Thorir Thorbjarnarson 6'5 So G: Last years late addition. Really liked what i saw from him in limited action last year. Crafty basketball player. Gets the nod over Harris due to an extra year in the system. 7. Nana Akenten 6'6 So G/F: Has the potential to be an Evan Taylor type defender with a much better stroke from deep. Should be able to slide in and take some of 50+ minutes open at the 2/3. *7-9 are pretty close to being interchangeable. 6. Jordy Tshimanga 6'11 Jr C : At the least Jordy will be a useful big body to rebound and defend the paint for 15 MPG. If he can improve some combination of hands, footwork, and passing he could have a huge impact. 5. Thomas Allen 6'1 So G: Looks to have one of the largest gains in terms of impact. Should get alot of Anton Gills shot attempts and will hold up better defensively with more size/strength from another offseason. 4. Isaac Copeland 6'9 Jr F: Cope coming back was icing on the cake. I look for him to really focus/improve on outside shooting and rebounding this season. It will be interesting to see how he improves with a healthy off season. 3. Glynn Watson 6'0 Sr G: Got the nod over Copeland because of his PG position. I think Glynn struggled as a third and fourth option on the team last year. Expect him to have a bounce back year. He will excel at breaking down opposing teams defenses and be a solid defender himself. Also expect him to return closer to his sophomore shooting numbers. 2. James Palmer 6'6 Sr G: Legitimate candidate for Big Ten Player of the Year and sneaking onto an All-American team (3rd team maybe even 2nd if we really kickass). James is a great player that excels at attacking the rim and drawing contact and his size makes him more than adequate defensively. Gets number two though because he is close to his ceiling and we know what we are gonna get with him (which is a damn good player). Dont be surprised to see last years Palmer plus a modest improvement of his 3 pt percentage. 1. Isaiah Roby 6'8 Jr F: Hands down choice for number one bc of his unique size and skillset. He is close to the best, if not the best, at almost every facet of the game on this team. Look for him to be our second leading scorer and team leader in blocks and rebounds. Will terrorize teams on both sides of the ball. Feel free to list your own or provide any comments/feedback. Hope you enjoyed.

    Roby (is Good)

    It was a joke, relax. We are allowed to have a little fun on here.

    Roby (is Good)

    My God, i just did the math and if Roby just took all 57 shots per game we would have been so much better.
