  1. While the Lincoln Journal Star has an article on Ruby Porters commitment on the Husker Extra web page: https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/womens-basketball/nebraska-women-s-basketball-gets-commit-from-international-player/article_04af7c6a-0f2a-5c62-b4a9-0ce0e1616c5a.html the paper chose to only include the following in the NE Area News on Tuesday in the paper copy and the e-edition!! Pretty weak support of the NE women's basketball program! I totally missed the below as I usually minimally look at NE Area News. BASKETBALL: Ruby Porter from Adelaide announced her commitment to play for the Huskers women's team on Twitter. She’s a 5-foot-10 guard who is one of the top college prospects in Australia. She’s played with the Australian national team, and recently was on a three-on-three team that won the championship at the under-18 Asia Cup. ... The Husker women added four television appearances to the 2019-20 season. Nebraska will play on the Big Ten Network on Dec. 31 against Michigan State. Other appearances include: Duke Dec. 4 (BTN); Minnesota Jan. 4 (BTN); Wisconsin Jan. 9 (NET); Ohio State Feb. 2 (NET).
  2. 5-star recruit Lauren Ware commits to Arizona https://www.azdesertswarm.com/basketball/2019/9/7/20854538/lauren-ware-commits-arizona-wildcats-womens-basketball-2020-recruiting-ucla-tennessee-texas
  3. https://www.paciolan.com/news/detail/paciolan-sidearm-sports-to-acquire-neulion-college "SYRACUSE, N.Y. and IRVINE, Calif. (May 3, 2019) – SIDEARM Sports, a leader in collegiate athletic digital solutions, and Paciolan, a leader in ticketing, fundraising, marketing, and analytics solutions, will acquire NeuLion College effectively immediately. NeuLion has long been recognized as a reputable brand behind collegiate athletic websites. In 2018, it assumed the dedicated name NeuLion College providing clients such offerings as web publishing, ticketing, donor management, mobile/OTT apps and HD video streaming technology. Paciolan and SIDEARM Sports, both operating within Learfield IMG College since 2017 and 2014 respectively, will assume servicing the entire NeuLion College portfolio. "
  4. With 4 current players that are going to be seniors and 3 of them guards (Whitish, Eliely, and Hudson) plus Mitchell a guard/ forward, some additional offers to guards for 2020 (besides the recent one) would seem like a priority with emphasis on finding some speed and ball hawking as well as point guard ability+scoring.
  5. FYI: Source for game by game international FIBA basketball stats for Bourne: http://www.fiba.basketball/world/u19women/2019/player/Isabelle-Bourne/ 3 games played thus far.
  6. Saturday's (6-29) Lincoln Journal Star (https://journalstar.com/sports/high-school/basketball/girls/feeling-super-stater-mckenna-minter-putting-herself-back-on-the/article_f38f052e-5d73-5090-a49f-16aa3e8089ec.html) had a good article on McKenna Minter with indications that several DI schools have recruited her (no mention of NE in this article although was mentioned in prior Omaha World Herald article (https://www.omaha.com/neprepzone/recruiting/girls-basketball/recruiting-report-mckenna-minter-impressed-with-creighton-fielding-growing-list/article_a50584ae-ccda-11e7-bf96-ab657ab1dc00.html). So other than Lauren Ware, we have not heard squat on NE women's basketball recruiting efforts for 2020 or beyond!!! When there are skilled local or Nebraska wide players that could help, looks to be common sense to be actively involved in recruiting these players!!!! Maybe they are but who the heck knows!! Minter's speed and quickness would be a plus to add to the current roster which could use these on both offense and defense!
  7. Not only due the women's basketball players on the team need to have the desire to play better, the coaches need to get going to have better teaching and results in a number of areas: Defense efforts were lacking at times; too many silly turnovers occurred last year so better attention to passing and ball security are needed; better shot selection needs to occur to include being ready for a good quick shot when that is possible (versus some of their horse shots); better press breaking schemes need to occur as was reflected late in the season; offensive schemes were sketchy to include lack of getting Kate involved consistently; someone needs to do better work with Kate to develop her skills (no real improvement from year 1 to year 2 for her); and offensive rebounding needs to occur with better schemes and results. Therefore, unless the coaches up their efforts to coach the team up, likely another frustrating year will occur!
  8. Below is a comparison compilation of NE women's stats versus other Big Ten Teams for all season games through Saturday, March 2nd plus at the bottom, NE only stats for Big Ten Games. Nebraska had finished its season. As reflected the least favorable stat is lack of offensive rebounding at 8th place, and was worse using NE Big Ten Games only. Ave blocked shots were at the top of the league. Shooting percentage in all games was in 5th place at 0.427 and was lower at 0.416 for Big Ten Games only, with all the missed lay ups that occurred or horse shots that occurred versus solid in the stance good shots that need to occur. Big ten opponents shot slight better on average at 0.424. Turnovers fluctuated from time to time and occurred from both poor passes and poor pass receive positions as well as not handling the press at times. This was prepared to pass on to the NE women's coaches before games in the Big Ten tournament to potentially reflect on focus items (offensive rebounding; better shots; press breakers; better defense; and fewer turnovers) to win enough games in the tournament to get in the NIT. They needed to win the first 2 games in the tournament to get in, which as you know we lost to Purdue right away, 71-75. For that game NE shot 38.5% versus Purdue's 44.6%; got out rebounded 44 to 36 with 17 offensive rebounds to their 19; but had only 8 turnovers to their 10. So some of the same old story for this game. Personally, the current NE women's coaches need to have a much higher focus on these and other basketball acumen for next season, or perhaps get some different coaches and assistants who will!!! >BIG TEN WOMEN ALL GAMES PLAYED STATS THRU 3-2-19 (SOME TEAMS HAT ONE MORE CONFERENCE GAME LEFT AS REFLECTED BELOW (Compiled from NE stats and Big Ten Team stats) Thru 3-2-19 One * FIELD GOALS 3-POINT FREETHROWS REBOUNDS AVE BLKS STLS SCORING Team Statistics GmLft GP FG-FGA PCT 3FG-3FGA PCT FT-FTA PCT OFF OFF/GM DEF TOTAL AVG A TO TO's BLK /GM STL /GM AVG Illinois 29 739-1772 0.417 187-597 0.313 310-443 0.70 312 10.8 739 1051 36.2 401 381 13.1 131 4.5 180 6.2 68.3 Indiana * 29 722-1692 0.427 152-433 0.351 415-555 0.748 303 10.4 781 1084 37.4 345 448 15.4 84 2.9 180 6.2 69.3 Iowa * 28 869-1674 0.519 159-465 0.342 352-462 0.762 281 10.0 797 1078 38.5 613 374 13.4 105 3.8 175 6.3 80.3 Maryland 29 814-1767 0.461 170-458 0.371 380-537 0.708 393 13.6 852 1245 42.9 483 440 15.2 148 5.1 213 7.3 75.1 Michigan * 29 794-1758 0.452 130-403 0.323 381-551 0.691 402 13.9 756 1158 39.9 431 468 16.1 102 3.5 202 7.0 72.4 Michigan State * 28 779-1748 0.446 201-540 0.372 383-536 0.715 350 12.5 738 1088 38.9 517 405 14.5 102 3.6 237 8.5 76.5 Minnesota * 28 680-1622 0.419 135-407 0.332 435-634 0.686 404 14.4 753 1157 41.3 380 445 15.9 92 3.3 218 7.8 68.9 Nebraska 29 749-1754 0.427 216-602 0.359 386-538 0.717 323 11.1 778 1101 38.0 457 441 15.2 153 5.3 216 7.5 72.4 Based on total games played-NE Fifth Third Sixth Eighth Seventh Sixth First Fifth Fourth Northwestern * 28 691-1712 0.404 126-392 0.321 378-550 0.687 359 12.8 731 1090 38.9 434 374 13.3 133 4.8 269 9.6 67 Ohio State * 26 572-1422 0.402 151-470 0.321 326-495 0.659 263 10.1 676 939 36.1 319 427 16.4 103 4.0 195 7.5 62.3 Penn State 29 697-1773 0.393 160-535 0.299 420-569 0.738 332 11.4 698 1030 35.5 351 401 13.8 107 3.7 227 7.8 68.1 Purdue * 30 693-1669 0.415 175-516 0.339 373-511 0.73 362 12.1 712 1074 35.8 440 453 15.1 160 5.3 193 6.4 64.5 Rutgers * 28 660-1572 0.42 142-483 0.294 322-439 0.733 368 13.1 642 1010 36.1 370 444 15.9 130 4.6 290 10.3 63.7 Wisconsin * 29 692-1746 0.396 125-444 0.282 356-611 0.583 413 14.2 785 1198 41.3 401 434 15 145 5.0 196 6.8 64.3 FIELD GOALS 3-POINT FREETHROWS REBOUNDS FG-FGA PCT 3FG-3FGA PCT FT-FTA PCT OFF DEF TOTAL AVG A TO BLK STL AVG Nebraska 29 749-1754 0.427 216-602 0.359 386-538 0.717 323 11.1 778 1101 38.0 457 441 15.2 153 5.3 216 7.5 72.4 Opponents 29 731-1784 0.410 186-559 0.333 379-529 0.716 349 12.0 742 1091 37.6 384 444 15.9 107 3.7 237 8.2 69.9 >CONFERENCE ONLY-Nebraska Trends Worse Better Better Worse Worse Better Better Better Worse Nebraska 18 0.416 0.368 0.733 178 9.9 444 622 34.6 264 264 14.7 99 5.5 136 7.6 69.1 Opponents 18 0.424 0.348 0.725 220 12.2 459 679 37.7 241 289 16.1 65 3.6 143 7.9 69.1
  9. A nice team win today despite the turnovers and a coach who does not know when to call time out. Meanwhile, 3 pages of comments on the game with 19 by Bugeaters1; 8 by Cazzie22; 8 by RedStee; and 18 by Red Don!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why don't the 4 of you have your own message board for just the 4 of you so serious Husker fans do not have to put up with your many nonsensical posts!!!
  10. With the poor field goal shooting; poor 3 point shooting; ineffective offense; lack of rebounding effort; turnovers; lack of defense; failure to coach up a 6'5"center; and poor use of time outs, Williams and her coaches need to be looking at their own ineffective coaching for the close games that we are losing!!!!!! Minimally she may need to shake up the assistant coaching staff for next season. Williams needs to look in the mirror and get some things fixed ASAP with the team!!!!!

    Rutgers?

    This whole 3 pages on Rutgers has a lot of BS drool in it! We do not care if someone is sitting in your seats or whether you are going to the game or what you are wearing!!! This BS does not belong in here! Just focus on the basketball basics! Too many turnovers by seasoned players; bad passing; no development of Cain in the last year; Cain setting picks on top instead of being low and trying to get open for shots or rebounds; bad passing; and in ineffective offense! Out!
  12. NE had bad defense and too many turnovers. Simon with 4 and Whitish with 3. Poor ball handling for seasoned players. The bench scored 45 points and the starters 35. Maybe Williams is starting the wrong players! Looks like an NIT team at best!
  13. As reflected by others, the team has too many turnovers by seasoned players and more than opposing teams which was same as last year as well as behind in steals versus competition. Offense appears disjointed to get open for good shots. Too much standing around. Y-ball mentality on playing time for all of the roster is not helping. Haiby is a good add. Too many players trying to shoot 3's with last 3 players in playing time 3-15 on 3's year to date. Not really fun to watch! I quit watching the Creighton game half way through as really hate losing to Creighton! Need better defense as well as maybe try to runs some traps at times to get some turnovers. Need to get their act together fast or can forget about post tournament play!
  14. Seems to me that Williams needs to focus on getting basketball players in the 500 mile radius of Lincoln where there are plenty good players!! Chasing down players from around the world and the costs associated with that does not fit in with a program that does not breakeven!!!
  15. Their broadcasting is annoying and relatively hick with Coatney's use of "You Betcha" for made three's!! It is cringe worthy!
