  1. Mahomes is here at the game. He went to Tech
  2. Made it down. Fueling up at the flying saucer!
  3. #24 Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-0) vs Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-0) ** HALL OF FAME CLASSIC ** Date: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2018 Time: 8:30 p.m. Arena: Sprint Center Location: Kansas City, Mo. Broadcast: ESPN2 Link for Live Stats Texas Tech Head Coach: Chris Beard Location: Lubbock, Texas Conference: Big 12 Nickname: Red Raiders Mascot: Masked Rider, Raider Red - Due to the Masked Rider's requirement to ride a live horse, Raider Red is the preferred mascot for basketball Last time out: Beat USC Shirt not to wear: Scarlet, Black, Oakland Raiders Starters jacket Opening Line: Nebraska by 2 Great moments in twitter: Tim Miles puts out this two word tweet about Tubby Smith jumping ship from Texas Tech. April 15th was the same day Tech hired Beard away from UNLV where he'd just started in March after his magical tourney run at Arkansas Little Rock Players to watch: Jarrett Culver Culver is go-to scorer on this team as the unheralded Lubbock native put himself on the NBA draft radar as a freshman last year on the Red Raider's Elite 8 team. The projected next level 3 and D player should be tasked with guarding James Palmer in what should be an interesting individual matchup. KenPom Helps us look at the Lineup PG SG SF PF C Pct 1 13 Matt Mooney 6-3 200 Sr 25 Davide Moretti 6-2 175 So 23 Jarrett Culver 6-5 195 So 11 Tariq Owens 6-10 205 Sr 32 Norense Odiase 6-8 250 Sr 12.9 You might recognize Mooney and Owens from years past as Tech reloaded through grad trasnfers. Mooney was the SG who did some damage against us for Craig Smith's South Dakota team two years ago. Tariq Owens had 6 blocks for St Johns in their beat down which included Palmer getting T'ed up after scoring on Owens and letting him know about it. Itailian SG Davide Moretti is a 3pt sniper and Odiase is a glass cleaner who mostly scores on putbacks. Tech has a pretty shallow bench at this point that includes a couple of new faces the Huskers tried to recruit in Kyler Edwards and Deshawn Corprew after a year at JUCO. Both are capable but inexperienced scorers. Senior Brandone Francis plays minutes because he knows the system but isn't much of a threat to score. The Skinny: Nebraska has a couple of built in advantages here as they will have the home court advantage and Tech had to burn some legs to rally back against USC last night. It's probable that Beard and his packline defense will choose to protect the defensive boards as opposed to aggressively pursuing transition points as Tech attempts to grind out a win. Nebraska's defense has been elite thus far and should also keep Tech in tabs in what Vegas believes will be a low scoring game. It's possible that Culver gets the best of Palmer in this matchup but how is Tech going to cover Roby and Copeland? Cope has a good shot at locking down tourney MVP honors tonight. Nebraska individually has the advantage at most every position here but unlike USC is able to play defense. Tech will try and force Nebraska into a jump shooting team and once again you'll grit your teeth when 3s don't fall. It's ok...our combination of defense just means we need to be a decent shooting team and our shot chart is finally starting to look like we understand what is a good shot. One last ace up the sleeve: this is a pretty poor FT shooting team. Look for Nebraska to bend at times but never break as they look to win their first holiday tournament since the San Juan Shootout in 2000. Prediction: Nebraska 68 - Texas Tech 62 View full article
  4. We are #24 though. I'm using whichever ranking is higher between the coaches and AP poll
  5. Nebraska 68 - Texas Tech 62 4
  6. I'm having a good year. My error/game is sub 1.00

  8. First Div 1 team to use it in a game. They used it for the NAIA championships I think.
  9. I suppose it depends on what happens. I don't think you're going to see a TV broadcast with this stuff turned on during game play or a giant infomercial. I do think for games streamed, which will happen a lot more, you could chose to turn on certain features.
  10. Did anyone else think it was weird that Copeland shot the FT for that technical?
  11. With the rise of Nebrasketball and podcasts, it's only natural that Nebrasketball podcasts have blown up. Also add in the fact that almost all radio broadcasts are available on the internet and there is a lot to listen to. I think there is enough content to break away from the media thread. If possible leave a description of the audio plus something that will embed into the site like a mp3 link or soundcloud
  12. If we win tonight it will be our first tournament win since the San Juan Shootout in 2000
  13. It's a different read than Leebo
  14. We peaked at 34 very early in the year.
  15. There are no values assigned to wins or losses. It's net adjusted efficiency.
  16. It's predictive and until some point in December or so will rely on last year's data to a point. Give http://www.barttorvik.com/ a try...you might like his predictive sauce a bit better. Something like the RPI or NET will be more reactive to this year but without any sort of past data to rely upon will be inaccurate in a different way.
  17. Pretty well. The one complaint I had was lack of team 3pt makes/attempts as a listed stat. I saw this last night and it was a snapshot of our struggles to break through against this defense. We were defeating it by moving the ball and the snapshot of it in this way was extrememly helpful and what the staff used to emphasize it to the team. I'd agree with the overall assessment that the announcers seemed to be on a shottracker quota. I didn't notice it as much for our game but i really noticed it when I was more listening to than watching Tech-USC. As a deal where i'm watching icons floating over heads or have my screen half taken up? Bleh. As a deal where I can pop in and check out some data during a break? Yes please.
  18. Mizzou seemed gassed at the end

    2018 CBE Classic Schedule

    You could bring 2000-3000 people to this game with no problem
  20. #24 Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-0) vs Missouri State Bears (3-0) ** HALL OF FAME CLASSIC ** Date: Monday, Nov. 19, 2018 Time: 6:00 p.m. Arena: Sprint Center Location: Kansas City, Mo. Broadcast: ESPNU Link for Shot Tracker Live Stats Missouri St Head Coach: Dana Ford Location: Springfield, MO Conference: Missouri Valley Nickname: Bears Mascot: Boomer the Bear Last time out: Beat Stetson Shirt not to wear: Maroon, fur Opening Line: Nebraska by 14 Radio Listen: Will be tough to find this audio on stations that carry the Huskers and Kansas City football Players to watch: Keandre Cook The 6'5 Juco transfer is 2nd on the team in scoring and leads the team in rebounding. He's been extremely efficient against lower tier teams and will probably draw James Palmer to start the game on defense. Some Good Reading 10 thoughts on Dana Ford's first week as the Missouri State head men's basketball coach - A great primer on the team 3 Man Weave's Missouri Valley 2018-19 Preview - Great read on Dana Ford and what he's trying to implement. Specifically this: KenPom Helps us look at the Lineup PG SG SF PF C Pct 1 0 Josh Webster 6-3 180 Sr 11 Jarred Dixon 6-4 176 Sr 1 Keandre Cook 6-5 183 Jr 5 Obediah Church 6-8 218 Sr 10 Szymon Wojcik 6-10 224 Fr 26.4 Cook and Dixon are the scoring punch. Webster is the pass first PG from Texas Tech who has been turnover prone. Wojcik is probably the 4 and Church the 5 as Church is a traditional center and a prolific shot blocker. You'll probably see minutes from Juco F Kabir Mohammed, shooter Ryan Kreklow, and Jan Wojcik, the other Wojcik. Miles Presser Three takeaways 1. We prepped for exotic stuff before leaving for KC otherwise we'll take it one day at a time 2. Shot Tracker stuff will be in use. Not sure if this will be an advantage for us. 3. We tried to recruit the Wojcik twins that play for Missouri St The Skinny: The Bears are rebuilding as they fired the under-performing Paul Lusk and replaced him with 34 year old Dana Ford who had some MVC assistant experience to go along with his 4 years at Tennessee St. Ford brings in a defense first uptempo philosophy but currently finds himself undermanned as four of his scholarships are in use by transfers needing to sit out. See, not everyone was granted waivers. Missouri St is going to try and pressure Nebraska much of the night so it will be interesting to see how aggressive we are bringing up the ball and who takes the lead should Watson be out of the game. The Huskers should have lots of open rhythm 3s and when you come into a game knowing that, you tend to believe they'll go in. Should Nebraska have a miserable night, the Huskers should be able to clamp down with their defense. Expect another night of poor shooting for the opponent and hopefully a game where we can rest the starters at the end. Prediction: Nebraska 86 - Missouri St 68 View full article
