  1. Absolutely. By the way, his brother Timmy is a 6-6 forward for Utah. He is averaging 21.1 ppg and 7.9 rpg. Shooting 50% FG, 77% FT. I suspect we got a really good one in Teddy Allen. I'm excited to see what he can do here.
  2. Doubt the coaching staff will allow a scholarship to ride pine for four years, but we'll see how it plays out. I think he'd be a perfect player for UNO.
  3. I'm sure the original poster maybe went a little overboard with the tern "hate"...I'm guessing it's more like they don't want to see him on the court again. From the evidence we have, it seems Jervay would have been much better off in Tim Miles' system of dominating the ball, ISOs, driving to the rim and mid-range jump shots. Team basketball does not appear to his strong suit. He shoots too much. He takes bad shots. He doesn't move the ball. He doesn't play great defense. He makes bad decisions on and off the court.
  4. Are we sure Green is TOO talented? He's the worst 3pt shooter on the team of anyone who plays a lot other than Kevin Cross. He's the worst FG% shooter of anyone on the team. He's the third-worst FT% shooter on the team (ahead of Burke and Yvan). He averages more fouls per minute than any other player on the team other than Cross and Easley. He averages more turnovers per game than anyone on the team other than Mack (who handles the ball the entire game). But the most telling statistic that can be skewed for a game or two, but not over the course of a season, is +/-. There is a reason why we beat Purdue and Iowa, games where Kavas and Green combined to average just 12.5 mpg. Name +/-⇕ Min⇕ T. Thorbjarnarson 28 353 C. Easley 14 49 K. Cross 12 283 C. Mack 8 522 H. Cheatham -5 502 Y. Ouedraogo -17 318 D. Burke -21 413 S. Curtis -23 49 M. Kavas -43 249 J. Green -55 350
  5. Hard to say between Walker and Yvan who is better. Yvan is doing OK as a very young freshman, just OK. Walker barely played at Tennessee in two years but he was on a really, really good team and had NBA guys ahead of him. If Yvan were on those rosters I doubt he sees much playing time. So I lean Walker based on him being a man and Yvan still growing into a man. Yvan needs to get way stronger finishing at the rim. And regarding Banton...we've been hearing that he has NBA potential and that he is one of our best players in practice. On the Italy trip he did things no one else on our roster could do. With all due respect, we are Nebraska basketball and can't afford to not start guys like that. Putting it another way, here's the order of confidence I am that they will start games next year: Mack Allen Banton big drop-off Walker/Yvan (one of them will start, coin flip IMO) Stevenson Burke (feels weird putting him down here, so maybe he would get the nod over Shamiel) Thor (having a fantastic year, but still can he shoot this well all season? He's a good player to have come off the bench if you want to be a really good team IMO) Cross Mayen Green Easley Arop (I'll be surprised if he doesn't find somewhere else to play next year)
  6. I would say of those 3, Dachon is most likely to start, then Thor, then Jervay.
  7. Based off what I've seen, and how I think these guys can improve before next year...I would guess: Mack Allen Banton Stevenson Walker Off bench: Burke Cross Thor Yvan needs to get stronger, ideally he could redshirt next year because he is so young. With Walker, Banton, Mayen all here, we have a good number of 6-8, 6-9 options, and Cross and Stevenson are undersized guys who can still hold their own down low.
  8. Agreed they won't all be here. If Thor starts, it won't be over Banton. Stevenson maybe. Banton is a legit basketball player who is 6-8 with a long wingspan. We need him on the court as much as possible.
  9. IMO, next year's starters, if they are all here, are: Mack Allen Banton Stevenson (think he's a lot better than some may realize) Walker Off bench: Burke Cross Thor Ouedraogo Easley Green Mayen Let's just say there are some guys playing big minutes right now who will not play big minutes next year, just because you can't play 10-11 guys big minutes.
  10. Pretty pathetic comment by that writer. I'm fine being picked last. But that's pretty lazy and unprofessional. I suppose it would have killed him to mention two of the Top 10 JUCO players in the nation coming in... By the way, in 8 years in the Big Ten, Nebraska has NEVER finished last. I have no reason to think Fred Hoiberg's team is going to be the first to do so.
  11. good news is we have probably the best coach in America to either fix the shot or decide that the shot is just fine if it doesn't get blocked and goes in the hoop.
  12. 1620 needs more basketball talk with Bahe gone. I hope Sharp will talk college basketball, but I won't hold my breath on the other two shows talking about anything other than Nebraska football, food, and making teenage jokes.
  13. Very well could. Especially if nobody can get a rebound. He’s proven capable of that
  14. I didn’t include him because I think he redshirts.
  15. Here’s how confident I am they’ll be in the rotation: 1 Haanif Cheatham 2 Cam Mack 3 Dachon Burke 4 Jervay Green 5 Matej Kavas 6 Shamiel Stevenson (if eligible) 7 Samari Curtis 8 Yvan Ouedraogo 9 Kevin Cross 10 Thor 11 Easley 8-10 is where it gets dicey IMO as each of them provides something completely different. There will be some games where we need a smart unselfish player like Thor to come in and make plays. There will be some games where we need all the fouls we can give down low and call on Yvan and Cross. But IMO the first seven are for sure playing in darn near every game. Now if Shamiel can’t play first semester, Thor and Kevin will probably share his minutes.
