  1. Assuming this is the last addition, this is my penciled in lineup Griesel Emmanuel CJ Wilhelm/Gary (toss up, but I lean Gary i think) Walker -Lloyd (6th man. Wing primarily for CJ and Emmanuel, but might play lead guard too) -Wilhelm/Gary -Kieta -mcpherson -lawrence Offensively, I have no idea who's going to score. CJ has to jump to 10+ PPG and Emmanuel/Griesel both have to match previous outputs with the jump in competition. Walker can maintain I think. The defense is this team might be one of the better defenses we've seen in a few years. Emmanuel and Gary both pride themselves on defense as does McPherson. Wilhelm was active in the passing lanes last year with his hands, if he can be more sound and disciplined I like him. Walker is a solid defender. It's kinda cool to contrast to what we saw last year. Offensively, we had 3 guys who were usually good for 10+ a night and 4 once CJ started heating up. I'm not sure what to think honestly, but my initial reaction is I like this group. Just need some scoring jumps. Offense may be eye bleeding bad at times.
  2. My new phone hasn't let me post in here or comment for some reason, so I haven't been able to give thoughts on this. It's Creighton. I am not sure if it's a great basketball fit(nembhard has the pulse of the offense already and Baylor wants to operate as a ball handler), but they'll be a great team. To reiterate that it's Creighton, coach Howard was following his mom, his dad, and Baylor as recent as today. That has since changed as he isn't anymore.
  3. Griesel will be the primary option. McPherson should give him rest, assuming he's ready. Lloyd should do some initiating also. For the last one, TBD. If Reeves comes aboard, he can probably do some. If not him, it depends on the guy they bring in. Matt made a point about Wilhelm. You could throw him at the top of the key and have the play start once he catches it. He did exhibit some good passing instincts in the games he played.
  4. My biggest thing about juwan that I love is he doesn't need the ball to be impactful. He'll crash the offensive glass, cut when there's openings, or set screens. His athleticism pops off the charts though. In contrast, his 3 ball leaves a bit to be desired. I wonder who they play him with at the 5? Maybe start Wilhelm at the 4 and have Gary be the first sub for Walker and slide Wilhelm down? If his 3 ball can get to at least 30%, this isn't an issue though.
  5. I'm a bit hesitant on him, but his energy and ability to fill in off scorers is something this team has needed for years. Athleticism pops off also when watching. My concern is how much offensive skill does he have right now. Getting a scorer through the portal is still necessary even if they get him. That much is definitely true.
  6. Haven't seen any husker writer confirm it yet, but looks like juwan Gary may be visiting tomorrow and Tuesday.
  7. Banton getting playoff minutes at the end of this Toronto/Philly game. I'd assume Mikki Moore was the last Husker to get playoff minutes without doing much research
  8. Welp. That was fun while it lasted lol
  9. The more I read and see about Betts, the more I like.
  10. I've had allo for about 3 years now after having spectrum for a few, and I've had one or two times when I've had issues. The thing about allo and why I'll stick with them, it's extremely easy to get ahold of someone. With spectrum, not so much. I already cut the cord and have been with Hulu live TV for a few years also.
  11. Reeves is gonna be here for the spring game btw. Just forgot. He's the only one here, so they probably are putting all their resources towards him.
  12. Brother of Payton Sanford, current Iowa freshman. I'm not going to get too excited over this one
  13. Here's another Howard follow. He's a tweener, but it looks like he's canvassing for a 4. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/juwan-gary-1.html
  14. I'll shelf this until I see the final roster. But my expectations are .500 or better at minimum. Need to build momentum in the program internally. Ideally, NIT bid but I'm starting with the bare minimum of .500
  15. I think you got the 20-21 ones. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/jake-stephens-1.html
  16. I have an infatuation with tall guards who can handle and run an offense. I really hope Lloyd exhibits that
  17. Also, this answers my question I've had for a while. I knew we had to address the 4 in some capacity and all they've contacted were guards prior to today. Howard must have had an idea of who he wanted. Stevens and Ali are both great starts.
  18. Ali Ali wouldn't be bad. His rebounding at his size is a bit worrisome, but if the team can rebound as a whole better, I'm ok. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/ali-ali-1.html
  19. another guard that we contacted. He'll likely follow Martin to UMass though
