  1. Agreed, especially with passing and defense. Though defense was not just about effort sometimes it was scheme and the importance of assignment understanding. ie (all 5 collapse leaving the best 3 point shooters to there lonesome) another big issue to me was switching on the dribble penetration. I get so frustrated when the dribbler beating there man means an automatic uncontested layup which I saw too often in too many games. Finally on the defensive side of the ball, boxing out which by the way is the biggest issue team wide as I see it. This why I love watching Miss Mershon, she rocks in this catagory. Offensively passing is the word. Explain to me why we have by percentage the best 3 point shooter in the land and we are only getting 4 or 5 looks a game. I do not buy into the cannot create own shot as much as I buy into ball rotation. Good passing is the only way to get good ball rotation.
  2. I do not think anyone is tearing down coach Cook or NU volleyball. He has advanced NU the volleyball program he got from coach Pettit to a top three power house. All the applause in the world for that. The nature of the beast is what the combat is here. Or do you really think UConn basketball would take a hit for their volleyball program. That is what we are talking about here ( The program vs. a program). If any of that was misconstrued, my appologies.
  3. Cause this is how it worked last time, also basketball needs the player volleyball is loaded enough. Make no mistake this will be full time vball and part time bball on a basketball scholarship. Oh that includes summer work outs etc...... If you doubt that go to Greicha ( All-American setter non starter on the basketball court.)
  4. Hope everything goes well here. She's seems to good a person to be riddled with a career of pain.
  5. That sucks. To quote mwm89 oh well.
  6. Kansashusker thanks for the feedback.
  7. Question are we chasing Ashton Verhulst have not heard any mention of her.
  8. I watch lots of locals like you do in Kansas. Felt there were a few over the years we blew it on like the guy to open the discussion. Not really sure who we are recruiting. No row 6 to put it in a nice little package for us. Fact is the three that went elsewhere are the only three i know had offers. If you watch game tape i saw 1 standing around the elbow doing nothing on the defensive side. I love defensive play, so i do not like seeing that. I think it is important to own your state and keep good ties with local coaches. To back that up I would refer you to the volleyball program that gets locals in almost every class.
  9. Kind of along the same lines and granted the twitter feed I read may have been dated. 7 D1 schools have offered Miss Minter a scholarship and none of them were here. She has quicks, handles and hops, three things we really do need. Also if an alums daughter is in a Creighton uni kicking in our back side, i think i'll scream. Her game seems to need a bit of polish, but she really has the athleticism to be a lock down ball defender. I have also seen film on one that we have offered a scholly to and thought meh!
  10. Hannah scoring -2.5 shooting% -.03 3PT% -.013 reb -1.1 per contest asst. -22 TO +5 steals -11 season long Kate scoring -2.4 shooting% -.041 reb -1.1 per contest ast. +2 TO +0 blks. -21 steals -4 season long I know stats don't tell the whole truth, but they don't lie. Yeah I'd say player developement is and issue. More of an issue, at the start of the season they really did look out of condition. NOW FOR THE REAL BOTHERSOME STAT. our whole focus last season was improving rebounds, so how did we do? -2.2 per contest and our opponents are +1.1 Every player needs to improve. The coaching staff needs to evaluate the things they are doing and yes they need to improve.
  11. loss would put us 8 to 9 and a win would put us 6 or 7. The worst would be 7 as we have 3 tie breakers.
  12. I am going to have to agree with SM. I would actually go bolder, but cannot do it with the substitution pattern and it is as simple as right hand left hand. Right now we have really 1 person ( Nicea) that finishes on the left side with any consistency and she really does not call her number enough. Sam Haiby gets to the rim and is great at finishing, but what happens when her right hand is taken away. What Iowa did defensively is mark the two shooters on the floor (Liegha, Hannah and Taylor), which ever 2 were on the floor at the time and take away the right side penetration from Sam. Miss Bourne finishes equally on both sides, but more importantly she finishes right side right hand, left side left hand. This should also profoundly help Sam Haiby as now you cannot send extra help to take away Sam's right hand. Sam will probably also become a consistent 8-12.
  13. Just a few notes 1) the ex-husker landed in the right place. Twerking before the and taunting the crowd after the three. They would not be allowed by a husker coach, but coach B. loves the primadonna crap. That being said I would love in husker red she does play well. 2) the crap the big ten officiating lets stars get away ie. Gusty does them a total disservice to them. The ref was watching allowed 4 clear walks that ended in buckets and at least a half dozen hooking calls. To her credit you make refs make a call and you do not change til they do. Q: what happens in the ncaa tourney when they actually call it. Kate could not close on the mid cause she'd have gotten beat to the bucket. Ashton was over matched both physically and skill wise. Did anyone else notice Mershon shut her down reasonably well. ( very encouraging for the future) 3) Q2 shot selection sucked which cost us the game. I know we got blown out in the 4th, but our margin of error is too small to have chop wood against a team that good in the 4th. They just pressed to hard more experience would help here. 4) we needed Liegha's shot to fall. She got good looks her shots just didn't fall. It happens. Keep on shooting Liegha it'll drop.
  14. Super excited for this. I plan to be and hope everyone else is. I predict a close game. Think our best chance is getting under their point guards skin. The former huskers temper prone mentality is the best way to keep Gusty out of the game.
  15. Both our ball movement and shooting have been better lately. Our defense is still suspect, but a bit of that is coaching. We seem to change up when things are working. I think we over think things, when we should just KISS it. We have to get after the boards in this one. If we reduce the deficit from last time by at least half, I like us to win this one.
