  1. Look at the numbers I put above. Teddy is really effective off the ball as a catch-and-shoot player. He's very good running off screens. His most common play type this season (nearly a quarter of his possessions) is as a spot-up player where he's catching and shooting or attacking closeouts. A good point guard would allow Nebraska to take better advantage of his abilities in all those areas. Better shooters around him would create more space for him to work with inside the arc. He's also been a noticeably more willing passer since he came back from his benching, getting into the pa
  2. To add even more to this, Teddy is an excellent pick-and-roll player as both a scorer and passer(1.109 PPP, 85th percentile) and he's also excellent as a catch-and-shoot player (1.304 PPP, 88th percentile). He doesn't have to dominate the ball or isolate all the time. Get him a competent roll man (Walker's filled this roll nicely) and a point guard who can consistently set him up for jumpers and you've got a really dynamic offensive player on your hands. That being said, he's also one of the best off-the-dribble shooters in the Big Ten, so...
  3. Teddy Allen is scoring 0.967 points per possession, which Synergy classifies as "very good" and in the 73rd percentile. He's "very good" both in the halfcourt and in transition. He's in the 72nd percentile or better in each of his top four play types (spot up = 1.033 PPP, 72%; transition = 1.173 PPP, 74%; off screen = 1.128, 76%; P&R ball-handler = 0.921, 82%). He's also in the 64th percentile in isolation after that Penn State game, scoring 0.867 PPP ("good"). Teddy is above average at almost everything he does offensively. The man-to-man defense and turnover issues are a prob
  4. Well, he only has six offers. I think he's probably going to play out this summer and see what happens with the dead period before making any decisions.
  5. Limited exposure over the summer + lack of ability to take visits + the potential return of seniors all over the country + potential free transfers is going to make it tough on non-blue chip 2022 prospects.
  6. Per Synergy, he has 13 shooting possessions as the pick-and-roll ball-handler. It hasn't gone well: 7 points, 2-7 FG, 1 foul, 5 turnovers. Tack on his passing possessions (six of them) and you don't get any more points, just 0-5 FG and another turnover.
  7. Shamiel in 8 games since the return to play: 7.0 PPG, 48.8% FG (30% 3FG), 61.9% FT, 3.6 RPG, 0.5 APG, 1.1 SPG, 0.5 BPG, 2.1 TPG, 16.6 MPG. Expand that to 30 MPG (for comparison's sake) and that's 12.6 PTS, 6.5 RPG, 0.9 APG, 2.0 SPG, 0.9 BPG, 3.8 TPG. That's pretty much on par with Dalano's season averages (minus the playmaking).
  8. McGowens is shooting 43.2% inside of 5 feet overall this season. Was at 47.9% and 47.2% his two years at Pitt.
  9. I was there all day. Session I recap. Session II recap. Let me know if there are any players or teams you want to hear about.
  10. Well, I think it's safe to say that Teddy isn't exclusively the reason for the lack of ball movement and offensive struggles. Wasn't any better or more consistent without him; the other guys just aren't as good as he is at scoring in a bad situation.
  11. Apparently that was a misdiagnosis. Their doctors told him it's tendinitis and scar tissue (injury is in the same knee with the repaired ACL).
  12. That is not the case. And he didn't cut his list down to six, those are the six he said have been recruiting him the hardest. Came from this interview.
  13. Yeah, he's about that unless he's had a growth spurt in the last few months. Not any taller (unless you count his hair).
  14. Unfortunately, it took a whole lot of shots to get McGowens those points. He shot 43-131 from the field, 15-57 from 3 and 45-60 from the free-throw line with 8 assists and 15 turnovers in those seven games. Oak Hill: 23 pts, 7-18 FG (1-9 3FG), 8-11 FT, 8 reb, 1 tov, 3 blk Hamilton Heights: 38 pts, 13-25 FG (6-13 3FG), 6-9 FT, 7 reb, 1 ast, 2 tov, 4 stl Sunrise Christian: 10 pts, 3-17 FG (1-7 3FG), 3-6 FT, 4 reb, 4 tov, 1 blk Montverde: 23 pts, 9-21 FG (4-9 3FG), 1-3 FT, 2 reb, 2 ast, 1 tov, 2 blk, 2 stl Wasatch: 14 pts, 3-17 FG (2-8 3FG), 6-8 FT, 2 reb, 1 ast,
  15. I don't believe he had the spacing to even try it in college.
  16. I coach one of the national teams at OSA.
  17. A lot of that is his competition level, but he has topped 40 three times already. John's really streaky from the perimeter but he's a good player. He's definitely a shooting guard the way he plays too; he's a pure scorer. I coached against him this past summer.
  18. And my point was I see no outcome where Garza comes anywhere close to Gasol on defense, and that's a huge part of who he he is as a player. I just don't see the comparison at all, and I'll be shocked if Garza comes anywhere close to having the kind of pro career Gasol has.
  19. I'm guessing Hoiberg has a better feel for what's going on in the inner workings of and interpersonal dynamics within his program than any of us on the outside looking in. What does "Hoiberg better start taking notice" even mean? More generally, McGowens is shooting 40.6% inside the arc and while he's shooting well from 3, he's taken twice as many 2s and isn't shooting well from the foul line either. He has 15 assists and 22 turnovers in 11 games this season. It's great that he played really well against a bad defensive team in Michigan State; hopefully that carries forward. But d
  20. At his peak Gasol was one of the best defensive players in the NBA.
  21. NU announced after the first game that a player in the program who did not play had tested positive and was isolating. Obviously, Andre was the only one not at the game so the dots were easy to connect, and then Hoiberg talked about him missing time and not being able to practice and all that.
  22. FWIW, his name is actually St. Cyr Thomas. He goes by Saint.
  23. He doesn't really have those offers any more. He basically had to restart his recruitment entirely. I guess TCU is still talking to him, but that's about it from the original group.
  24. Where did you see those numbers? What I see on Sports-Reference is Nebraska has had 30 out of 627 shots blocked this season (4.4%). Still needs to get better, but it's not nearly as bad as last year (8.3%). Nebraska has blocked 35 of its opponents' 619 shot attempts this season (5.7%).
