  1. Any chance we're able to line up an unofficial for Sam and Charlie Hoiberg?
  2. The one thing not to overlook about Mayen or Allen is that they both have played significant minutes at the Power-5 level so the *juco adjustment* probably won't be so severe for either.
  3. You can pay to stream this online here: https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/events/news-channel-nebraska/gam6270e6634b It might be available via NCN's website but I doubt it https://metro.newschannelnebraska.com/watch
  4. It would appear that you can catch Millard North with Sallis and Co. vs North Star who happens to have DW tonight via News Channel Nebraska
  5. If we had kept Miles on for another year this site likely would have turned into Husker Beilein Central on Sunday
  6. Notes and Quotes from UNL Nebraska Post-Game Notes The halftime score in both matchups was identical (Wisconsin 39, Nebraska 38). Today’s game featured 10 ties and 13 lead changes. The 10 ties were the most for Nebraska in a game this season, while the 13 lead changes were the second-most this season (17 lead changes against Southern on Nov. 22). Haanif Cheatham scored 17 points against Wisconsin. He has 37 points in his past two games after going scoreless in his previous game at Iowa. Yvan Ouedraogo narrowly missed his second career double-double, finishing with eight points and a game-high-tying 10 rebounds. His 10 rebounds tied his career high for a Big Ten Conference game and marked his fourth double-figure rebounding effort of the season. With his 10 rebounds, he has 149 rebounds on the year and moved from ninth to fifth on Nebraska’s single-season freshman rebounding list. He passed Joe McCray (140, 2005), Andre Smith (144, 1978) and Shavon Shields (147, 2016) and Michael Jacobson (147, 2015). Despite battling an illness, Cam Mack had eight points, eight assists and nine rebounds. He had eight assists and zero turnovers, marking his first game this season without committing a turnover. Wisconsin hit 15 3-pointers in today’s game after knocking down 18 triples in the first meeting this season. The Badgers are the only Husker opponent this season to make more than 13 3-pointers. Wisconsin’s Brad Davison went 8-for-11 from the 3-point line, tying the most 3-pointers made by a Husker opponent. It marked the ninth time a Husker opponent has made eight 3-pointers in a game. Davison’s eight 3-pointers also tied the Pinnacle Bank Arena record (Malik Smith, Minnesota, 2014). Nebraska Coach Fred Hoiberg On how this game felt similar to the last one vs UW "Yeah I did, we came out with great energy in the first half. I thought they shots [Wisconsin] hit in the first half were well contested. I thought the ball was moving exceptionally well in that first half, and we were getting what we wanted against a team that is one of the best defensive teams in the country. Even the possessions were we missed shots, they were great looks at the rim, or open threes. Then in the second half the urgency wasn't there. A lot of that was, again, due to our inability to finish at the rim. We were 1 for 11 at the rim between the second and third media timeouts, and what that does is really hurts your floor balance and your defensive transition. That's where a lot of those threes were made. Then we missed a couple rotations and we took the double team off and went down and double teamed, and missed the rotation again. So the concentration level has got to be stronger, it has to be more urgent when things aren't going well, when your going through one of those directions." On Cam Mack and Dachon Burke's health "Yeah Cam [Mack] was throwing up all last night, he came in and just watched the walk through all this morning and then went to the doctor, and they put a couple IV bags of fluid in him so he was game-time decision. Dachon [Burke] had his first workout yesterday and he was pretty worn out, he hadn't done anything since the day before Maryland and got sick and did not make that trip. So yesterday was his first day of any type of activity, so I'm proud of those guys for going out and trying to grind it out. Cam felt really good, I think those fluids really helped him before the game. It wasn't the same bug that Dachon [Burke] had, Brett Porter is going through it as well. So we've got it going around the locker room, hopefully it doesn't affect the rest of the guys." On keeping focus after losing 10 games in a row "We just got to keep grinding, we have got to keep coming out. The first half was really good basketball for us, again the broken record is sound the same every game, it's the consistency of our team. We have got to play 40 minutes, if we have any chance at all we have got got play a consistent 40 minutes of basketball." Junior guard Thorir Thorbjarnarson On three-point defense “In the second half, especially when they started making those to extend the lead, we kind of got a little frustrated and kind of went away from what we were supposed to be doing, and that’s on us. I think they got some looks, but they also made some ridiculous shots so I think we’ve got to give credit to them. They made,15 so we’ve got to give credit to them for some of those.” Senior guard Haanif Cheatham On second-half struggles “Yeah. I don’t know what it is right now but this has made out to be a problem all season It has been up and down. We come out good one game with a good second half, next game we’ll come out horrible. You never know what’s going to be going on, but I figured that happened today and it’s been a problem for us all season.” Defensive struggles affecting the offense “I think once we struggle a little bit of defense, we try to get a 14-point play in one shot. We tried to do a little too much in back-to-back possessions and it kind of messes us up, kind of messes up the flow of the defense and offense. I think we’ve got to find a way to sustain it and be a tougher team.” Wisconsin Head Coach Greg Gard On playing at Nebraska in a hostile atmosphere Obviously happy for our guys, come in here in a tougher place to play. They’re a team that can hurt you in a lot of different ways, but we responded in the second half, specifically defensively. It helps when shots go in, too, but the defensive end was where we made some steps forward in the second half. We were able to get them under control a bit and get some offense from our defense. Really good performances up and down our lineup, regardless of how many points they scored. We got contributions from everybody that got a chance to play. On the second half adjustments There was a lot of reminders of [the first game between the teams]. I think also that the foul trouble got us out of trouble a bit in the first half, so we had different lineups in there a little longer than normal. But in the second half we were much in tune defensively. We had to try to wear them down, guarding Cam Mack, that’s a tough cover to keep him under control. On going home with a win “Look at the league. There’s not a lot of us that are taking happy trips home after road games. We’ll take them any way we can get them. Knowing how the crowd was going to be, and we were able to get the crowd out of it by playing well. Look at how they played. They’ve been competitive in most of their games, so we knew exactly what we had to do today to come out of here on top.”
  7. Couldn't tell from looking at the video if his hand hit the ball or Tyler Wahl's arm. Also couldn't tell if it was his finger or his wrist.
  8. Unfortunately for him he has experience in recovering from injury as he's torn his ACL and broken his shin before
  9. Wisconsin Info Head Coach: Greg Gard Location: Madison, WI Conference: B1G Nickname: Badgers Mascot: Bucky Badger Line: Wisconsin by 6.5 Typical Rotation Depth: 8 KenPom rank: 32 Offensive Style: Slowly shootin' 3s Defensive Style: securing offensive rebounds/not fouling Key Loses: Former starting SG Kobe King has transferred Players to watch: Nate Reuvers The Junior is another in the line of mobile Wisconsin centers who can make 3s. Additionally he's an excellent shot blocker Players to watch: Micah Potter The Badgers have been integrating Potter into the offense since he became eligible mid-semester and offensively he's been a boost as he takes the load from Reuvers. Typically the two centers don't play together. Like Reuvers, Potter is a capable outside shooter. Roster points PG SG SF PF C Pct 1 0 D'Mitrik Trice 6-0 184 Jr 23 Kobe King 6-4 205 So 34 Brad Davison 6-4 206 Jr 2 Aleem Ford 6-8 217 Jr 35 Nate Reuvers 6-11 235 Jr 17.5 The Badgers play around 8 guys with 6 dominating the minutes Trice is the PG but has really struggled from outside in conference. Charge enthusiast Brad Davison also has struggled from outside. He remains a dead eye FT shooter Ford, like most everyone else, hasn't been lighting it up from outside Sr shooting guard Brevin Pritzl remains an elite 3pt shooter and stout defender 6'7" Freshman Tyler Wahl has only hit one 3 during conference play and of course that was vs Nebraska Jr guard Trevor Anderson is guard depth Hoiberg Presser Cross will continue to start; Hoiberg thought that Yvan had one of his better games in a while coming off the bench. Burke has apparently lost weight during his illness and his availability is up in the air. The Skinny: Nebraska decided they were going to make Wisconsin beat them with the 3 and Wisconsin ended up killing them with the 3, knocking down a ridiculous 18 of them. The Huskers might dial this back a bit but expect Nebraska to once again concentrate on taking away Reuvers/Potter and hoping that the Badgers have a tougher time shooting with Adidas balls. A brief glance at their home/away splits in 2020 suggest they will. Last time out Dachon Burke scored 21 points in 36 minutes. It seems unlikely he'll have the stamina to repeat those numbers coming back from his bout with the flu. Expect Jervay Green to start once again and pick up that slack. Feels like Nebraska should play this one close and thus I like their chances to pull one out at home against this Wisconsin team that has struggled to score on the road in 2020 Prediction: Nebraska 74 - Wisconsin 67
