  1. Good to see Wisky running its offensive pace in regular season form already.
  2. Most talented NU team since 95-96? Can this NU team manage egos and playing time, unlike 95-96? Great look back and ahead from World-Herald. https://omaha.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/nebraska-basketballs-most-talented-team-fell-apart-how-do-these-huskers-avoid-that-fate/article_69b67a7c-334a-11ec-9ed0-8bdf478528ab.html
  3. World Herald previews the post players this week
  4. World-Herald had an update on his visit: Liked his visit, but doesn't have a list of finalists yet. He loved PBA. https://omaha.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/2023-recruits-leave-lincoln-impressed-with-nebraska-basketball/article_87d05752-2f04-11ec-b5ba-2341e6882866.html
  5. World-Herald had an update from his visit - Parker will be back Oct 30 for his official & speaks to Hoiberg 1-2x per week. He's looking to continue building that relationship. https://omaha.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/2023-recruits-leave-lincoln-impressed-with-nebraska-basketball/article_87d05752-2f04-11ec-b5ba-2341e6882866.html
  6. World Herald had a run down on Yalden's visit: He and Friedrichsen are AAU teammates and good friends. Would be a nice package deal https://omaha.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/2023-recruits-leave-lincoln-impressed-with-nebraska-basketball/article_87d05752-2f04-11ec-b5ba-2341e6882866.html
  7. World-Herald breaks down the wings today
  8. Exactly - someone find Lakes a Kipper Nichols jersey to wear, tape NEBRASKA over the top of the ILLINOIS on the front & he'll be golden.
  9. I think Coach is voting to use Nebraska throwback warmups for the season...
  10. Sit down interviews on B1G Network with Coach, Trey & Verge: FH – Trey is part of the continuity that we like to have back – we were making good progress as a team last year before covid hit – but we played a lot of our best basketball after that hit us – Trey is a big part of helping our young guys along and help them learn the system – older guys are helping coaches hold everyone accountable – bringing a player like Verge in late was big for us – for our team, the biggest challenge is making the right, simple play – shooting should be far better, so need to make the simple play – Trey & Verge are big parts of this T – Holding each other accountable is very important – yesterday, held a team meeting to talk about roles, so we can reach our goals as a team V – NU’s style of play and coach’s system is perfect for my style of play, the spacing – our team fits well with the way I play FH – We're much more versatile in the front line – Breidenbach is a big addition with his versatility – big players are so physical in the B1G, so having a big who can pull them away from the basket and stretch the floor for our slashers – we’ve had a good shot profile the first 2 years, and the pieces we’ve added will give us better spacing – Walker, will be nice to have him full go for the entire season – Andre is making strikes – Lat stretches the floor – must have a versatile team in today’s game – where we have generated our shot attempts is 82% inside the restricted area and behind the 3-pt line last season – analytics say those are the best places to generate points – we did not finish well at the rim last year, though – and we did not shoot a high percentage from 3 – hopefully with our floor spacing, it should generate better 3 pt looks and better results at the rim T – I just want to take whatever the defense gives me – and want to continue to work on my shot with Coach Hoiberg V – Different role for me here than at ASU – I’m here to be the point guard and be a leader, lead by example, do the right things every day – show everyone that hard work pays off T – Bryce puts in work – always looking to improve – after being away from him for a few years and now seeing him grow up up close makes me proud – really he just saw how genuine the staff was so he made the choice to come here – you could see how real this staff is, being genuine FH – Bryce has God-given talent – he and Trey have great parents – Bryce is very fluid on the floor, great stroke, unlimited range, athleticism sets him apart, great wingspan – at the same time, he will have a learning curve in college and will have ups and downs – important to have Trey and other leaders on hand to help with that transition – but sometimes what Bryce does on the floor just ‘wows’ you – how he can take over portions of a practice – grateful that we have him and the whole McGowens family on board – feel great about his future and the future of the program
  11. Coach Williams transcript Coach Hoiberg transcript
  12. Coach Hoiberg: Excited about our group this year - first time bringing back some players who had a key role They're providing great leadership to our newcomers with 4 freshmen & 4 transfers Continuity is very important - took over a big rebuilding project, which has created some difficult moments Proud of how our guys fought through last season's struggles - 10 players & 4 coaches had covid last year 14 games in 29 days - our guys that found a way to fight through that adversity are really helping mentor this season Impressed with maturity of newcomers - like the uniqueness and skill set of the roster Very competitive team, gives great effort daily Love coming back to Indy - fun to see all of the Pacers greats' names that I know hanging in the rafters - awesome years in Indy for me May see transfer numbers increase with no sit-out rule Transfers are key for increasing the roster talent quickly What we have now is a good mix of older and younger transfer players Verge, getting him late was big for backcourt depth & to add ball handling Edwards, Wilcher & Keisei all can spread the floor Shooting is huge, opens up driving lanes - 82% of our shots last year came in restricted area & behind 3 pt line, which is ideal - we're better equipped to finish those shots this year Difficult to figure out a rotation, who starts and who finishes games Must stress to team that role acceptance is big - go out and do your role - still have 3 weeks to figure it out I played every role imaginable - understand how big it is to go out and accept your role Creates highly competitive practices as guys fight for valuable minutes Probably have 12 guys right now who could take key minutes - probably start the year narrowing that to 9 or 10 guys playing key minutes May not be same guys in those roles to start the season as will be at the end of the season Nice to have an event like this to gain some normalcy for our lives We are 100% fully vaccinated, but we are being cautious with testing & keeping an eye on it - no positive tests so far this season Excited about having fans back in PBA - our fans give us a huge home court advantage - appreciate our fans' patience as we build this
  13. Coach Williams: Large number of returning players should lead to highest level of B1G overall success 4 returning starters give us confidence + 4 other contributors + Top 25 recruiting class A lot of reasons to be excited for the program Team has embraced internal competition & believes in hard work Want to be hardest working, grittiest & most competitive team on the court Staff has been with me a long time, and they know what works for us here Watching NCAA is not as enjoyable when we're not in it March Madness is exciting, but it's far more special when we're in it Was a transition period when I took over, but we tried to embrace history & tradition & what Yori did for the program Always want to raise the bar and build on what happened in the past Hard to put into words the B1G Network's growing support of women's athletics & hoops Grateful that Kevin Warren understands the importance of growing the women's game & puts actions behind his word
  14. Started at 7 a.m. today - caught me off guard. Doing men's and women's teams together. Coach Hoiberg goes at 9:40 am / Coach Williams goes at 9:30 am 7 teams today, 7 teams tomorrow Trey & Verge are NU's player reps in attendance For a little extra entertainment, Fran blows his top at 9:20 am
  15. World-Herald is breaking down one position group a week before the start of the season. Pretty nice, detailed preview from the new guy! Guards
