    ConkintheCorner reacted to BjoeHusker in Paper Season Tickets   
    Got my paper tickets last week. Somewhat disappointed in that they are just generic paper tickets like you might pick up at the ticket office.

    I kinda feel bad for Trevor Lakes. From the sounds of things, he's been shooting lights out in practices. His shoulder is finally fixed and he seems to have fully recovered. I wish I knew he was having shoulder problems last season; I would probably have gone easier on him in anything I posted.
     
    We're set to lose Verge and Kobe to exhausting their eligibility and the McGowens brothers to the pros. Lat Mayen, it's been speculated, could leave after this year to pursue pro opportunities in Australia.
     
    Trevor Lakes could potentially be a rotation player on next year's team. Except he doesn't get a next year. And, this year, fortunately for us and unfortunately for him, we're stacked. How many of the last 20 years would we have LOVED to have a guy like him?

    Chris Basnett's observations from Pro Day:
    * The first 10 on the court for 5-on-5 drills looked like this: Alonzo Verge, Trey McGowens, Bryce McGowens, Lat Mayen and Derrick Walker on one squad, with Kobe Webster, Keisei Tominaga, C.J. Wilcher, Wilhelm Breidenbach and Eduardo Andre on the other. That left scholarship players Lakes, Quaran McPherson and Oleg Kojenets on a team with walk-ons Sam Hoiberg and Jackson Cronin.
    * DePaul transfer Keon Edwards was in his practice gear but didn't participate in the workout after playing in Friday's Opening Night event. It was the opposite for Mayen, who sat out Opening Night, but was active Tuesday morning. Walk-ons Chris McGraw and Jace Piatkowski also didn't take part in the workout.

    Could he have a similar career to Matt Garza when he is done at Nebraska??  Probably doesn't have the inside game that Matt Garza did but I see similarities..

    I might get chastised for this on here, but I don’t think it’s obvious Eduardo will be part of the regular rotation. Only so many minutes to go around and Fred has made it clear he likes Wilhelm at the 5. I wouldn’t be surprised if Eduardo was a situational minutes player, like Okeke was when Roby and Copeland took up the majority of the minutes at the 4/5. If Eduardo is getting significant consistent playing time, I think that means he’ll be vastly improved from last year. Which would be awesome.

    He looks bigger already. I expected him to look much skinnier.

    Alonzo Verge, Nebraska: This is not hyperbole: Verge could be one of the top scorers in the Big Ten this season. A lethal offensive talent, Verge scored 20 or more points on 12 separate occasions during his two years at Arizona State, which was highlighted by a 43-point performance against Saint Mary’s in 2019.

    ConkintheCorner reacted to hugh42 in 2022 PF Jasen Green (Omaha)   
    I wanted Jasen to be a Husker, just like Traudt and Sallis and Hepburn. Not only are they talented but they are home grown. Why the latter matters to me is basically a pride thing I guess in that such talent has been few and far between over the years and that talent has rarely ended up at NU. Oh well. I wish him and the others the best of luck except for when they play NU.
     
    Ultimately what I care about the most is for Nebraska basketball to become relevant in the B1G, meaning upper half finish more often than not and of course, getting to and winning in the NCAA tournament on a consistent basis. I think Fred will get us to where we want to go and hopefully soon.

    I like it, but there’s no chance Walker isn’t starting game 1.

    End game
     
    Also my educated guess is that he will announce Virginia

    Tominaga is 5th in the tournament in scoring & 6th in shooting value (no idea what that is) & 6th in 1-pt shooting percentage.
     
    He's 9 of 19 in 2-pt shooting over the past 4 games, which would rank 3rd in percentage, but, for some unfair reason, they won't throw out his poor day shooting from long range to start the tournament. 
     
    All pretty impressive since he almost certainly has to be one of the youngest (and smallest) players in the tournament.

    Poland loses to Netherlands, so that keeps Japan alive.

    This seems like it is going to be a bit of a kick in the nuts.  He just got a little bit too good I am afraid.  But this staff has shown ability to surprise me before.  Let's have it happen one more time.   I also like the fact that our coaches are a class act through and through.  You never know when elite guys like this will want to transfer.

    Loved how they raised ticket prices by about 20% (at least for my seats) per ticket after the two worst seasons in program history and sticking with the team through the pandemic. Was kinda disappointed to see that, honestly.

    ConkintheCorner reacted to Nebrasketballer in Alonzo Verge Jr.   
    Considering the alternative was for Nebraska to have an empty spot left from Banton deciding to keep his name in the NBA Draft… I don’t understand how anyone could think this is anything other than a great thing for the Huskers to get a player or this caliber with legitimate success at a Power6 conference school and that was getting looks from NBA teams before deciding to come back to play another season in college. He’s a grad transfer, so he has one season of eligibility, so he literally fills Banton’s empty spot for ‘21-‘22, and will leave that spot open again for the 2022 recruiting class. It’s a win-win.

    I mean is he really a JUCO guard anymore, if he's literally played 2 full seasons of power 5 ball? Seems like it takes away the 'can he play at this level' factor...
