    2019 SG Jervay Green (Juco) - VC

    There is, actually, a study on this. Among its conclusions are that the best single predictor of NBA 3 point percentage is NCAA 3 point percentage, the second best is NCAA free throw percentage, but the best predictor of all is a combination of variables. Here's the actual language: "Of the individual variables, FT% had the second strongest correlation with NBA 3P%. Unsurprisingly (and for a somewhat unceremonious conclusion), NCAA 3P% had the strongest. But the different combinations generally were much stronger than any of the variables individually."

    2019 Recruiting

    He’s a Pennsylvania kid who stayed home the first time around — probably unlikely to change for round two.

    They are set to have good teams as this season progresses and for the next few years. During the time of their connection with those greasy-agent guys, their recruiting haul turned into nearly all four-stars. That bonanza will have a positive impact for several years. But that same greasy-agent connection has its down-side as well (regardless of what actually happened). It will be interesting to see how their fortunes fare over the years to come.
  4. Can’t wait to see him against better competition—things will get harder, of course. So far, though, we are seeing some of the body control and athleticism that enabled him to high jump 6’8” in high school.

    Secret Scrimmage vs Iowa St

    And as long as we are talking what could/should/might have been, get this from last night in Wisconsin: "Morrow playing only 6 and a half minutes and ending up with 0 points and 0 rebounds. Before the pre-season, I figured he'd be #3 or #4 in mpg and possibly be our #3 scorer. Here's a guy who averaged 9.4 ppg and 7.5 rpg two years ago in the Big 14. I never, anticipated he'd get fewer than 10 minutes in even one game the entire season, let alone fewer than 7 minutes."

    Secret Scrimmage vs Iowa St

    Yeah. And he’s playing the post position.
  7. James Palmer was only 1 of 5 from three. But he did hit a three as the time buzzer sounded near the end of the first half, which didn't count. That would have made it 3 of 6 -- and 33% is edging toward respectability.

    2019 NCAA Bracketology

    And this is a report from October 23, 2018: Morrow has been seen limping around campus a bit over the last week which makes me worry a bit about his health as he had foot problems at Nebraska and foot problems and big men do not go together very well in case you haven’t heard.

    Yeah. And in their scrimmage he played post as well.

    2019 NCAA Bracketology

    At the other end of the spectrum is Ross Jernstrom of WOWT: last night he declared the 4 of 26 three-point stat at least three times—shaking his head and showing greater incredulity and alarm on each repeat. I was almost ready to cash in the entire season based on his view—but it was the night after Halloween, after all; so that may explain his sense of dread and horror.
  11. I watched Palmer in the halftime shoot around. He made nearly everything he shot from three and everywhere else—he rarely missed. Surely that will start happening during a game.

    Exhibition: Nebraska vs Wayne State - Nov. 1

    Brady doing some good things—7 rebounds and 9 points thus far.

    Exhibition: Nebraska vs Wayne State - Nov. 1

    39-21 at half—good guys are up. Have been playing lots of subs and some walk-ons.
