    Most Improved Player?

    Just looked at the video of Karrington, and wow can he shoot. Great stroke. Only unknowns seem to be his recovery from an injury and can he adjust to college play. Then I was curious as to what ever happened to Nana. I went back to his Topic and reread all the nice posts. IE: Comments like, "Best player on the best team in Illinois" etc. This board seems to have cooled on him a lot in the last year. I don't know people close to the team, I can only read internet info. Went to all the games last year and only saw him play a few minutes. It seemed to me that he was the 10th man on a very strong 9 man rotation. That didn't make him a bad player, just behind some very good players. Check out this video. This guy is lethal shooting 3's. On offense all he would have to do is move around the perimeter, shoot a few 3's and let the team play 4 on 4. He has had a year to adjust to college play. Now it is reported that he is working hard on his game. Since he didn't leave, I'm thinking the coaches have challenged to improve. I think Nana could be the surprise for this year. http://www.hudl.com/profile/6500304/Nana-Akenten

    Top Nebrasketball Dunks

    I recall Kimani Ffriend passing the ball inbounds after a basket to Cookie Belcher and then running down court to the basket. Cookie dribbled to the center court and passed the ball to Kimani who dunked the pass into the basket. Maybe not a great dunk, but what an athletic play!

    Is Nana going to add about 10Lbs of Muscle this summer to his last year weight of 215 lbs?

    Roby (is Good)

    That is one only Tim Miles can answer... Sorry for any inconvenience I remember Robe getting into foul trouble often early in the season, so he had to set on the bench. At the start of the year he moved to playing Center and also quit fouling. His minutes went up.

    Why not a project? I'd have no problem, if when we get close to the start of classes and the 'ship is still open offering it to someone like Shereef Mitchell´╗┐ or someone like that. If a scholarship is available: Just thinking about 2019. With all the seniors on this years team leaving, we will need quality players in 2019. Not sure we will want to rely on projects that might be able to compete after a redshirt year. Why take a person who will only offer a body for practice? We have seen a number of recruits come here who are not quick enough to play defense or can't shoot. They sit on the bench and usually leave. Take a look at other big 10 recruits. They are 3, 4 and 5 stars. Its a big uphill battle for a project to develop and offer competition to those teams. Thats why I say hold out for a quality recruit, not just take a body to use up a scholarship.

    Christian is 6-8", 230 lbs. A quality recruit, However, I don't see it happening. When he would play, Roby, Copeland,or Palmer would be setting. Not sure there are enough minutes availaible for him to want to come here and then would not add much additional value to us at that position. We need the quality recruit to be available in 2019.

    Keeping an open scholarship was the reason we got Copeland. That seemed to work out pretty good. Only reason to use the last scholarship would be if a QUALITY recruit will accept it. Don't use it to pick up a project.

    2018 recruiting

    Correct me if I am wrong, and I am sure someone will, But I think I read in the World Herald that Brady has a reach of over 9' and has a 31" or more vertical jump. If true, that is ridiculous athletic for someone 7'0. Sure, he needs more strength, but it sounds to me that he is more like a taller Roby. I can''t wait till he weighs over 230.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    Will he bring a 7 footer with him?

    Going forward

    It seems to me that we should keep either Copeland or Roby in the game at all times. Copeland has been starting, then Roby subs for him. They both play together late in the game when you want the best team on the floor. Now they both get close to 30+ minutes and the team is at its best strength the whole game. That leaves about 20 minutes a game at the 5 position for the Centers.

    Times Change I Guess

    I suspect that Papa Gordon honed his basketball knowledge with Johnny one nut at that exclusive girls basketball camp in Kansas. The one somewhere south of McCook or Hastings or where ever.

    2018 Isaiah Chandler - Wichita St

    I'm pretty old and I do remember a few good teams, but not any that got us a win in the NCAA. I think we want something better than those best teams.

    Miles states recruiting want list

    Yeah. He saved a scholarship last year, used it to bring in a 5* power forward and then 2 power forwards quit because they wouldn't get to start or get as much playing time as they did the previous 2 years. Boy did Miles screw up! He should know better then to recruit people better then the current players.

    2017-18 Nebraska Juniors ?

    What's Miles suppose to do? Sit down with Morrow, and tell him that he is going to take minutes away from Roby, McVeigh, Palmer, Copeland? If you are competitive and believe in yourself, you stick with the program. You should go into every year with the belief that you are going to make the tournament. You have to control what you can control. If you have a bad season, and the coach gets fired, you probably aren't that good. 0 Miles has said in the past that he will keep trying to recruit better people than the current players on the team. You will have to keep getting better or lose playing time to new recruits. Each person than has to decide what they want to do and figure out if they should stay or leave. There was a log jam at the 3 and 4 position and it can be argued that the less talented people would decide to leave. Quote
