  1. Currently sitting with the worst offense in conference, defense is more towards the top. We're looking at a rock fight Saturday. It's sort of surprising to look back at the last 3 years of Northwestern and they've struggled to shoot. Some of the issue is not having the replacement for Bryant McIntosh VIc Law is taking the most shots, has been struggling in conference. Great defender and probably draws Palmer Same deal for Evansville Grad transfer Ryan Taylor in terms of struggle for a guy who put up 20ppg there Dererk Pardon has been money in the paint as usual Barret Benson is the traditional center who still plays as Pardon's backup and despite the size just isn't as good. Stretch 4 Aaron Falzon was out with a bad ankle most of the year. He adds some much needed 3pt ability though that's about all he does. Miller Kopp was starting with Falzon out but he's basically an undersized Falzon though he is capable of doing something besides shooting 3s Anthony Gaines is the starting PG but can't shoot. Gets to the line a lot though. Boston College transfer AJ Turner is sort of a David Rivers type player. If NW wants to get weird and have no one under 6'7" on the court he's your PG. Jordan Ash never really developed and the sr pg/sg is done for the year Fr PG Ryan Greer rarely plays and also struggles to shoot. Larry Nance's other kid Pete is on the team but has been out with mono for a month (and easn't playing well when healthy) Ideally he'd be their starting stretch 4 They've toyed with playing Benson and Pardon together but don't think they do much of that against a smaller Nebraska squad. Seems like we can get away with Brady playing the 4 against Falzon and his lack of driving ability.

    Actual Attendance

    Penn St's box score showed 9120 in attendance last night which is not an actual number. This is something our box score shows and I feel we are in the minority in this. Does anyone remember when we started this and why?
  3. The Bennett thing is national news, btw https://www.dukebasketballreport.com/2019/2/15/18225852/report-ucla-pursuing-tony-bennett-virginia-basketball https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/252676/UCLA-Reportedly-Targeting-Tony-Bennett-As-Next-Head-Coach

    Truly Astounding Stat Line (TB)

    Former Ohio St walkon Mark Titus made a career out of embracing this http://clubtrillion.blogspot.com/
  6. Bennett in that fishbowl sounds as likely as Steve Spurrier agreeing to coach somewhere where he can't golf in the winter.
  7. It was about one month ago that we got to the point that the LJS and OWH asked the athletic department if Moos was still employed so skepticism at sensational news seems like the prudent course of action.

    Do you lay up on 15?

    I like to think it's because I've been tweeting out Tin Cup pictures before games during our losing streak

    Behind Enemy Lines-- Other Big 10 Boards

    I can barely remember a time now where I didn't have kids....which is the last time Minnesota beat us in Lincoln so don't fire Pitino.
  12. I could see scenarios where we make the tourney and still fire Miles or where we don't and still keep him; last year certainly was one. After living through the gut punch that was the month of January personally I'm rooting for us to win every single game with no strings attached as to the fate of Tim Miles.
  13. The people leaving the game last night at the 1:29 mark are the true hardcore game leavers. Everyone staying until the end added about 5 minutes to my drive home.
  14. They ran off Tubby Smith after he put together 6 years there that would still have him employed here.

    Nebraska Bubble Watch

    Anyway we can slice it going 4-2 down the stretch would give us at least our best 2 wins of the season and at least 4 quad 1 wins. So maybe don't let Northwestern come here and win, figure out how to not get bludgeoned by Penn St on the road, win one of the next 3 vs Purdue, Mich St, Michigan which sets you up for No Sit Sunday II vs Iowa. That's a lot of ifs for a team that tried to give away this game to Minnesota at the end.
  17. Had 5 of our 11 tonight along with that magical pass to Watson in the corner. Did a good job of not fouling out and having Murphy run him over for the offensive charge at the end.
  18. Excitement tonight at halftime when one of the streamers from the 150th birthday of the University celebration got stuck in the scoreboard
  19. Notes *-Nebraska shot 50 percent from the field, its best shooting night since shooting .533 vs. Creighton on Dec. 8. NU's 52 percent first half shooting was its best since the second half against Maryland on Jan. 2 and the first time NU shot 50 percent in a half since the second half at Indiana on Jan. 14. *-Husker coach Tim Miles won his 50th conference game at Nebraska with the victory. Only three other Husker coaches (Joe Cipriano, Danny Nee and Moe Iba) won 50 conference games at the school. *-James Palmer Jr. now has 12 20-point games this season, which is the most by a Husker since Terran Petteway in 2014-15 (13). Palmer has now reached double figures in 24 of the Huskers’ 25 contests, as he finished with a game-high 24 points. Palmer has reached double figures in 21 consecutive games dating back to Nov. 20. *-With the victory tonight, Nebraska has now won seven of the last 10 contests against Minnesota. 11 of the last 12 meetings have now been won by the home team dating back to 2012. *-Nebraska trailed by 11 points and came back to win, the biggest deficit the Huskers have come back from to win this season. The previous largest deficit overcome to win was seven against Oklahoma State. The 11-point deficit marked the eighth time Nebraska has overcome a double-digit deficit under Tim Miles. *-Brady Heiman’s basket was his first since Dec. 29th. On the season, he is 6-of-6 against Minnesota from the floor. *-Thomas Allen corralled nine rebounds tonight, a new career high. His previous best was six caroms vs. Penn State last month. *-Nebraska now has 19 20-point games from Husker players in 2018-19. *-This was Nebraska's first win this season after trailing at halftime. The Huskers trailed 31-30 at the break. *-The Huskers shot 50.0 percent (24-48) from the field and are now 5-0 when shooting 50.0 percent or better this season. *-With his eight free throws made against Minnesota, Palmer moved into a sixth on NU's single-season chart with 149. He passed Aleks Maric, who had 147.
  20. The BTN guys thought they blew that last call though they didn't mention all the other ones. Boy it feels good to win again.
