    Practice Countdown

    Jorge Brian Diaz would have turned those into some pretty sweet layups, though.

    Nana to Redshirt?

    I agree with this line of thought. The one thing I'll add is that red shirting a player seems to reduce the likelihood of transfer, which would definitely be good for the program. This decision could reveal much in Miles' confidence for the season and his job security down the line. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Go on record now.

    One aspect I'll be interested in is Morrow's health. We'll feel pretty good about our guys if they stay healthy and Morrow is gimpy half the season.

    By the way ...

    I think it would be Walter P IV.

    Defending the 3 pointer

    The way I understand this article is that once a player decides that he is "open" enough to take a shot, the distance of the closest player doesn't significantly affect the outcome of his shot. This should be expected, especially out of NBA players. A distraction shouldn't change the likelihood of a successful outcome, whether it's a fan on the sideline, a player 20 feet away, or a player 5 feet away. After the decision is to shoot is made the position of the defender doesn't matter and a coin flip will be as accurate a predictor of outcome as anything. The part of the article about the negative correlation proves the point that some of you are making: a truly contested shot is harder to make than an uncontested shot (e.g., a forced shot at the end of the shot clock). I think the ultimate point of the article is that in the NBA the goal is to make a player choose not to shoot the three point shot (in the article they want to measure this as a stat called 3 point avoidance). As several have mentioned, translation to the college game may not be straight forward, but I would guess that most D1 college basketball players have practiced enough and played in enough games that distractions don't make a difference. The extension of this conversation would then be to determine the outcome of the possession after a defender successfully makes a shooter defer from taking a shot. A defender selling out and jumping as high as possible with two hands in the air may make a shooter pass up a three point shot but obviously isn't a good overall strategy if the shooter dribbles around the defender for a layup.

    We are no longer good at Pinnacle Bank Arena

    Yes because not a season went by that when the Kansas Jayhawks came into town in the early- to mid- 2000's I didn't think: "This is a 50-50 game at worst."
  7. Is it just me or was the time/date an advantage for Maryland? I think most would have agreed with that statement with 5 minutes to go in the game. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    I think we'll be thankful for each of these guys before the season is over. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    I agree completely. I'm more confident after last night that we can make that happen. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: Vol 9, Ed 5 - UCLA

    I think something that's being missed is how well we matched everything Ucla gave in this game. Our goal isn't going to be to win every game the rest of the season but the ability to stay in the game (no matter who was carrying us) means that we can pull out a lot of the B1G wins that you kick yourself over at the end of the year of you don't get.

    Nebraska (4-0) vs. UCLA (5-0) Game Thread

    I disagree that we didn't adjust, we just took too long. They switched to zone and pulled away but we clawed back while they stayed in zone. I think Webster could have taken a little more initiative to take control after Ucla went to zone instead of having 3 or so minutes of empty possessions. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
