  1. Here are some articles about the top players in the 2018 and 2019 classes http://www.omaha.com/neprepzone/recruiting/nebraska-prep-boys-basketball-recruiting-rankings/article_ef3735c4-23a5-11e7-a057-f328b5ac3751.html http://www.omaha.com/neprepzone/recruiting/boys-basketball/nebraska-prep-boys-basketball-recruiting-rankings/article_0c2b8a30-23c0-11e7-939f-f33aee27bdcc.html
  2. Ms. Minter will have to improve her outside shot if she wants to truly be elite. She has a very flat shot from the free throw line, and I haven't really seen her shoot very much from the outside. She is very good in the open court, and finishes around the basket very well. She is around 5'8", and unless she grows some, no matter how well she finishes, a lot of those shots will be blocked in college. I do like her attitude, seems to be a very team oriented player. Someone to have on the Huskers radar, that's for sure.
  3. I agree with everything you say here completely. There is no reason for Jacobsen to not be guarding the basket in that situation.
  4. I would have liked to see them go after Triston Simpson from North Star last year as a point guard.
  5. Basketball is the only NAIA sport that has a division 1 and division 2. Division 1 offers 11 scholarships, while division 2 offers 6 scholarships. I have no idea why it is this way.
  6. The game that I saw him play in last year, which was towards the end of the year, he was not that impressive. It was only 1 game obviously, but he has some things to work on. In the game that I saw, he was 3-11 on field goals, 0-2 on 3's, 2-4 on free throws, 0 assists, 0 steals, 4 turnovers, 4 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Pretty athletic, but not someone that I would say is a must offer at this point in time.
  7. Been a season ticket holder of some sort since the 77-78 season. So you can say I have seen it all. (Except an NCAA tourney win) The last few years have missed some games here and there since my kids started playing high school sports. It's an easy drive for us from our home in northeast Lincoln. I plan on to keep going.
  8. Trace Tupper has the potential to be pretty good, but has to get stronger for sure. I have only seen him play once this year, but will get to see him more after the first of the year. Last year his hands were not real good, so it will be interesting to see if that has improved. He also has the habit of bringing the ball down low, but a lot of tall guys have that problem. Helmstadter was held back, but from what I understand, he was really young for his class, so if that is correct, now he would be really old for his class!!!! He started out the first few games this year really well, but
  9. Post entry passing is becoming more and more of a lost skill. Most players just don't know how to do it. Even if your post player is not a real offensive threat, the defense still reacts to it initially. The post can then pass to either a cutter to the basket or to a shooter at the 3 point line.
  10. I believe the championship game is on KXVO, channel 15 in Omaha on Saturday at 1:30, but the consolation game is not on, that I can find anyway. The champioship game might also be on DirecTV channel 681-1, the Altitude alternate channel.
  11. When I looked at my DirecTv guide, which also shows over the air channels, it also shows the game against Cincinnati will be on digital station 42.2, which is a KPTM digital station.
  12. My thoughts on a jump ball have always been, it's not who can jump the highest, it's who jumps the quickest. The official will rarely toss the ball as high as anyone can jump, so it doesn't matter how high you can jump. It's who can jump the quickest to get to the ball.
  13. The team I coached with my son on it played his team when they were in 8th grade in a tournament in Ames. At that time Tillo was head and shoulders better than anyone else on the court, and we had a some pretty good players on our team, as did the other team. He was the best player that we ever played against. I have not seen him play since then, but I imagine he is probably pretty good. I know he has had pretty good stats his first 2 years in high school. His team came to Lincoln and played Southwest last year and I was hoping to watch that game, but my son had a game that same night.
  14. Is Dan Tillo the kid from Sioux City North you were talking about?
