  1. wow! I have long suspected the degree to which she was committed to the team, but that look is startling. I wonder if it is a momentary change of expression and how it would look on video.
  2. Amen! She also has had a couple of timely steals and disruptions of opponents' attempts at fast breaks. Having had a few games with only 7 players would have been games with only six (yikes!) had WB not come our way as a walk on.
  3. Was not able to watch this game live, but i caught the replay late last night. Truly impressive! KC has had some good games as a Husker But I have never seen play like she did yesterday! A true force in the lane. No one had a bad game and I loved seeing the teamwork. I really doubted that this team would climb the hill that was laid out in front of them, and I am glad to say that I was wrong. But I am saddened at the name calling and the juvie taunt of one commenter and would hate to see this forum deteriorate into personal attacks. Members are not "a-holes" for having expre
  4. All around it was another great effort by the entire team. Everybody contributed. There is one thing I wonder about (and this comes out of curiosity not criticism), that maybe somebody with greater insight than my own can help explain ...... With a few seconds remaining, Huskers up by 3, Rutgers bringing the ball up court needing a 3 to go to overtime, clock ticking down... Huskers had accumulated either no fouls or only one foul in the 4th quarter thus having fouls to give before they would result in free throws. Instead of playing usual defense, why not interrupt Rutgers' rhythm and of
  5. late in the 4th quarter, Whitney Brown's 3 pointer appeared to be the result of what LTF is hoping for. It came right after a TO, the inbounds pass, the movement of all 5 players to set the screen, and getting the shot off all came quickly and methodically as tho that's what Amy was drawing up during the TO.
  6. What a performance! Huskers played with focus, organization, and effort all the way. This is what will be required to remain competitive with teams possessing more quickness and athleticism. Yesterday I saw the fight and determination that was evident during AW's second season but has often been hard to find since. GREAT JOB all around, ladies. It especially great to see Scoggins and Brown hit the 3s. Of course there are a few recurring problems that i hope we will see less of the most annoying to watch are 1) lazy lob passes over defenders capable of grabbing them out of th
  7. Something else that I don't understand. I ripped on it last year and it showed up again today. I refer to our inability (or lack of intent) to execute a play when we get possession of the ball at the end of a quarter with no time left on the shot clock. Seems like every other team I watch handles the ball protectively until attempting to get off a shot with about 5 seconds remaining in the quarter. That way (I am playing Mr. Obvious here) the team possessing the ball either makes the shot or has one, maybe two, attempts at a put back or draws a foul while leaving its opponent with very litt
  8. I am a long time fan and observer. I am no X and O analyst, but I think I have watched long enough (not just UNL but in general) to know good basketball when I see it. And its absence is easier to spot than its presence and right now its absence catches the eye as would a buffalo in a flock of sheep. I have no inside sources of information so I can't credibly comment on the unmeasurables like program management and team chemistry. In the survey I answered "player development and roster turnover", but Sam's one word first sentence is more apt - that being "myriad". But Sam (Sam,
  9. agree with Bugs. It's gone WAY nuts. I mean I can see why 1000s of people are not admitted to PBA but ONE game caller per media?? seems like Matt could have socially distance times 20 at least!
  10. is anyone else having trouble seeing this on BRN plus? I get about 5 seconds of action and than i get the reload circle. over and over again
  11. IMO, Markowski will be top 100 before this HS season is over
  12. OMG what wonderful news this is. We (or at least I) needed something to take the stink and stain off the lost FB season. I have written earlier on here what I observed of Ms. AM at the state tourney. Her performance in those three games was on the short list of the most impressive display of talent, focus, determination, and outright dominance that I have ever seen among girls BB players. Not one bit of show boating either ... She was part of her team not a one girl show. Congrats to coach Willliams and her staff and recruiting this outstanding athlete.
  13. umm, super WOW to that! To READ that she is top 40 - that's one thing. But to SEE that kind of talent and determination. Can't wait to see her in scarlet and cream!
  14. she is a jewel. I saw her play a few times this year - and all three of her games at the state tourney. In my non-pro opinion she, along with JH, JS and MI of course, will go down as one of the four best girl's hoopsters this state has ever produced. She looked to me to have it all .... physical structure, composure, reflexes & body control, court movement, teamwork, and endurance. Of all those, i would stress composure. She just looks as tho she is totally in control of what happens in the lane. It is a quiet confidence that she will dictate what happens. And she can back it up.
  15. what we heard just before the season started and then early on was that the substitution pattern would permit playing aggressively on defense for the entire 40 minutes The idea was that fatigue would not be a factor
