  1. Per Nebraska “Matt informed me that he is taking a leave of absence to deal with health-related issues,” Hoiberg said. “As both a colleague and friend, his health is our priority, and we will support him throughout this process. Everyone in our program looks forward to when he is healthy enough to return to the sideline.” I don't know that Matt A is involved much with game day prep so I don't think we'll see much of a change there.
  2. We talk about upping the talent level here but I'm not sure anyone for Nebraska would start for Michigan
  3. Dear lord I'm hoping for result in the ballpark of 10
  4. The thing I always come back to is that the coaching staff determines the number of minutes that are played. I understand what Kobe and CJ are saying here and when I look at win/loses vs the number of times that AV shoots, I easily come to the conclusion that Verge has the ball too much. However, when I look at the rebounding rates the lowest two guys are Kobe and Keisei. The next lowest guy is Wilcher. Verge is among our best rebounders. To me Verge gets all those minutes and will continue to because he's a complete player.
  5. I guess as far as Verge goes we have until at least January 5th to try and figure something out as that is maybe the first time we can Trey back. Honestly I can handle him over-dribbling or Bryce driving and taking 30 shots if we can make a winning offense out of it. I'm not saying that this is the path we should pursue; I'm saying that conference standings are based on wins and loses, not style points.
  6. When I went to further investigate McPherson I found he wasn't actually a PG either. Like Ramel Lloyd he's a combo guard. It seems concerning.
  7. Looking at this Michigan team and wondering if we can figure out what to change from the Indiana game because it's going to be another team that runs us off the 3pt line into shot blockers and isn't going to put us on the line.
  8. Maybe I'm off here but I didn't think we were running it into the lane enough against a defense clearly camping out at the 3pt line. We had a lot of success today inside when we committed to going there and that's when you get 3pt looks that aren't NBA range
  9. Actually I wouldn't mind if started these right after the last game gets over. That makes a good place to chat about the upcoming game
  10. Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-3) at Indiana Hoosiers (6-1) Date: Saturday, Dec 4, 2021 Time: 11:00 am Arena: Assembly Hall Broadcast: BTN Indiana Info Head Coach: Mike WoodsonLocation: Bloomington, IndianaConference: B1GNickname: Hoosiers Rotation Depth: 8+ Last Game: Loss to Syracuse in 2OT KenPom: 31 Line: Indiana by 11.5 Other: Both teams come in off of OT losses. This is the first time two former NBA players and head coaches will lead their respective teams in a Big Ten Conference game Player to watch: Trayce Jackson-Davis TJD certainly could have left for the NBA last year but has come back to anchor Mike Woodson's 4 out offense. The pre-season All-American is averaging 22 points and 8.9 rebounds as well as a B1G best 3.8 blocks. He recently beat Steve Alford's Assembly Hall scoring record by putting up 43 against Marshall. He's a load. Player to watch: Xavier Johnson The former Nebraska recruit finally ended up with Kenya Hunter at Indiana. It's all about keeping Johnson from driving into the paint as his weakness is his 3pt shooting. However, he's been money out there thus far, hitting 5 of 9. Possible Hoosier Starters 0 Xavier Johnson 6-3 200 G Sr./Jr. 45 Parker Stewart 6-5 210 G Grad/Jr. 12 Miller Kopp 6-7 215 F Sr./Jr. 23 Trayce Jackson-Davis 6-9 245 F++ Jr./So. 25 Race Thompson 6-8 228 F+++ R-Sr./Jr. Probable Rotation 53 Tamar Bates 6-5 180 G Fr./Fr. 1 Rob Phinisee 6-1 187 G+++ Sr./Jr 2 Michael Durr 7-0 250 C Sr./Jr, 4 Khristian Lander 6-2 185 G+ So./Fr. 22 Jordan Geronimo 6-6 220 F+ So./Fr.

The Rest of the Roster Miller Kopp and Parker Stewart are the 3pt shooters Indiana puts around TJD. Stewart is a stationary shooter whereas Kopp will drive inside. Race Thompson will be a problem in the paint, especially on the boards. 5 star freshman wing Tamar Bates is the 6th man and shows flashes of greatness. Rob Phinisee and Khristian Lander are the backup PGs but have been a drop-off from Johnson. Backup wing Jordan Geronimo can jump out of the gym. South Florida center Michael Durr is a giant human rim defender. UNL Game Notes Probable starters for Nebraska 1 Alonzo Verge G 6-3 5 Bryce McGowens G 6-7 23 Keon Edwards G 6-7 11 Lat Mayen F 6-9 13 Derrick Walker F 6-9 Bench 32 Wilhelm Breidenbach F 6-10 30 Keisei Tominaga G 6-2 0 C.J. Wilcher G 6-5 35 Eduardo Andre F 6-11 10 Kobe Webster G 6-0 14 Trevor Lakes F 6-8 3 Quaran McPherson G 6-3 33 Oleg Kojenets F 7-0 4 Jackson Cronin G 6-1 12 Sam Hoiberg G 6-0 15 Chris McGraw G 6-0 21 Jace Piatkowski G 6-3 The Skinny: For those of you unfamiliar, Mike Woodson is the first former Hoosier to coach Indiana since 1965 along with a being former NBA coach for the Hawks and the Knicks. He's brought in assistants Dane Fife and Kenya Hunter as well as a bunch of shooters to surround Trayce Jackson-Davis. The Hoosiers have quickly moved on from the end of the Archie Miller era. Defensively Indiana is going to try and run you off the 3pt line towards their shot blockers. If Nebraska can commit to running downhill it's probable that the B1G referees won't swallow their whistles every time in this one. Defensively I expect the Huskers to double team TJD when he touches the ball but he's a good enough passer that probably won't work well. The keys to this game will be Nebraska aggressively pursuing points in transition and aggressively attacking the rim. Turning this game into a track meet will exacerbate Indiana's turnover and hacking issues. Nebraska having to run much half court offense probably won't end well. This is a pretty good Hoosier team. Nebraska will need to roll with the flurry of punches this team will throw if they want to pull off the upset. Prediction: Indiana 89 - Nebraska 72 View full article
