  1. Leading scorers vs WSU way back when: Hamilton 26 Belcher 18 T Piatkowski 17 Chad Johnson 13 No way I would've gotten more than 2 out of 4 without looking it up. By the way, WSU plays UNO tomorrow night, I think it's on the Pac-12 Network at 6, if you want to have a local reason to check out the Cougs.

  3. 2019 Cayman Islands Classic – Georgetown, Grand Cayman (all times Central) Monday, Nov. 25 10 am – Colorado St vs New Mexico St 12:30 pm – Loyola-Chicago vs South Florida 4 pm – George Mason vs Old Dominion **6:30 pm – Nebraska vs Washington St Tuesday, Nov. 26 10 am – Losers bracket (CSU/NMSt vs Loy/USF) 12:30 pm – Winners bracket (CSU/NMSt vs Loy/USF) **4 pm – Losers bracket (GMU/ODU vs NU/WSU) **6:30 pm – Winners bracket (GMU/ODU vs NU/WSU) Wednesday, Nov. 27 10 am – 7th place game 12:30 pm – 5th place game 4 pm – 3rd place game 6:30 pm – Championship game Streaming video: FloHoops Tournament home NU last played WSU in an in-season tournament in 1998 in Alaska, winning, 95-84. Bonus points if you can remember who led NU in scoring that day. Double bonus points if you can name the 4 players who had double figure scoring in the game.
  4. Quite the late rally by MSU to clinch it for the B1G. B1G wins, 5-3 Scores DePaul 93, at Iowa 78 at Butler 64, Minnesota 56 at Marquette 65 , Purdue 55 at Michigan 79, bluebirds 69 at Ohio St 76, Villanova 51 at Northwestern 72, Providence 63 Penn St 81, at Georgetown 66 Michigan St 76, at Seton Hall 73 NU History (1-2) 2019 – DNP 2018 – at Nebraska 80, Seton Hall 57 2017 – at St. John’s 79, Nebraska 56 2016 – DNP 2015 – at Villanova 87, Nebraska 63 Series History (B1G leads, 2-0-3) 2019 – B1G 5, BE 3 2018 – B1G 5, BE 3 2017 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4 2016 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4 2015 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4
  5. PSU led at G'town 25-7 early, but the Hoyas making a run before halftime - unless you're Iowa, coming back from big deficits seems to be the theme of the Gavitt Games 2019
  6. All tied up after Wednesday, but the B1G missed a chance to take control, as PU blew a 13 pt halftime lead in Milwaukee, only managing 17 points after halftime. Clearly, if the B1G loses, it's all Iowa's fault, as they're the only team to lose at home thus far. Thursday, Nov. 14 5:30 pm – Michigan St at Seton Hall, FS1 7:30 pm – Penn St at Georgetown, FS1 Tied, 3-3 Scores DePaul 93, at Iowa 78 at Butler 64, Minnesota 56 at Marquette 65 , Purdue 55 at Michigan 79, bluebirds 69 at Ohio St 76, Villanova 51 at Northwestern 72, Providence 63
  7. Even though the BE still leads, it overall was a satisfying night Tuesday as the jackwagons lost. Both of them. Wednesday, Nov. 13 6 pm – Villanova at Ohio St, FS1 8 pm – Purdue at Marquette, FS1 8 pm – Providence at Northwestern, BTN Thursday, Nov. 14 5:30 pm – Michigan St at Seton Hall, FS1 7:30 pm – Penn St at Georgetown, FS1 BE leads, 2-1 Scores DePaul 93, at Iowa 78 at Butler 64, Minnesota 56 at Michigan 79, bluebirds 69
  8. Well, that was an ugly start .... not as ugly as Iowa's yellow home uniforms, but still, pretty bad. BE leads, 1-0 Scores DePaul 93, at Iowa 78 Tuesday, Nov. 12 5:30 pm – Creighton at Michigan, FS1 7:30 pm – Minnesota at Butler, FS1 Wednesday, Nov. 13 6 pm – Villanova at Ohio St, FS1 8 pm – Purdue at Marquette, FS1 8 pm – Providence at Northwestern, BTN Thursday, Nov. 14 5:30 pm – Michigan St at Seton Hall, FS1 7:30 pm – Penn St at Georgetown, FS1
  9. From what I read on Iowa message boards, they had cooled on him. He apparently didn't score well on the poke-the-opposing-players-in-the-eye test during his official visit.
  10. I know we're not playing in it this year, but hopefully the B1G can repeat its win from last season without our help. 2019 Gavitt Games (all times Central) Monday, Nov 11 7 pm – DePaul at Iowa, FS1 Tuesday, Nov. 12 5:30 pm – Creighton at Michigan, FS1 7:30 pm – Minnesota at Butler, FS1 Wednesday, Nov. 13 6 pm – Villanova at Ohio St, FS1 8 pm – Purdue at Marquette, FS1 8 pm – Providence at Northwestern, BTN Thursday, Nov. 14 5:30 pm – Penn St at Georgetown, FS1 7:30 pm – Michigan St at Seton Hall, FS1 NU History (1-2) 2019 – DNP 2018 – at Nebraska 80, Seton Hall 57 2017 – at St. John’s 79, Nebraska 56 2016 – DNP 2015 – at Villanova 87, Nebraska 63 Series History (B1G leads, 1-0-3) 2018 – B1G 5, BE 3 2017 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4 2016 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4 2015 – (tie) B1G 4, BE 4
  11. Kind of crazy numbers here to start the season that probably point to a combination of how vital Mack is to this team and how utterly inept the team has been offensively as a whole. -43 made FGs in 90 min of play (obviously terrible) -That's 0.478 FG per minute of play -Mack has had a hand in (either made or assisted on) 23 of the 43 FGs (53.5%) -Green has had a hand in 11 FGs (25.6%) -Burke has had a hand in 8 FGs (18.6%) -Last season, we made 0.634 FG per minute of game play (916 FGs in 1445 min) -Watson had a hand in 290 FGs (31.7%) -Palmer had a hand in 320 FGs (34.9%) As bad as things have been so far in 19-20, I can't even imagine where it would be at without Mack.
  12. Good stuff - have to think these transfer guys will improve going forward, at least start to approach what they've done before. They may be thinking too much trying to learn the new offense and figuring out how to interact with each other on the court, etc., which is affecting them when shooting. At this point, though, it's beyond bad. And these are the guys we knew we'd have to lean on heavily, so it's doubly punitive. Just an opinion, but you're giving the BE too much credit here. I saw Butler and Seton Hall and that other blue team play in person last year. Blecch. I'd probably give up on the game if I had to watch BE teams every night.
  13. From OWH today: more at: omaha.com/sports/high-school/recruiting/plus/mike-sautter-s-notebook-new-faces-to-make-an-impact/article_2ba92bb1-3f96-5e20-9a2c-440a7a77163e.html
  14. So if I start clicking this topic once every 30 seconds going forward instead of once a minute like I have been doing, will that increase the chances of a last-minute decision in the positive? I'm willing to wear out my computer buttons for the team if that's what it takes.
  15. The first time you posted this, I disagreed with it ... but after you posted it again, I completely agree. Post it a 3rd time in a couple of hours, and you'll probably convince everyone.
  16. Maybe we were. Do they use the Grant Gibbs eligibility plan at WSU?
  17. It showed up in my DirecTV guide today - looks like it'll be 3 parts, each 1/2 hour long, airing back to back to back. Looks like they'll be re-airing the 3 parts occasionally all week, but it won't be all 3 parts consecutively on those re-airings, so Oct. 28 is the best bet to catch it all at once.
  18. This was his TV show - they usually have it on-demand on Huskers.com a few days after it airs, but I don't see it up there yet. Looks like there will be another one for the next NU football bye week too, so Nov. 10 air date in Lincoln. Then it begins airing weekly after NU football season ends. I'm not sure what the Sports Nightly weekly call-in radio show schedule is for Coach Hoiberg & assistants yet. I want to say Coach Miles was on Mondays the last few years, but I'm not 100% sure.
  19. Coach Hoiberg on last night - had some highlights from Italy trip, as well as him breaking down each player who's eligible this season. Here are some quick paraphrased notes with only one semicolon: Mack – As fast anyone with ball in his hands, team speed is our advantage and he leads the way, can get downhill as a great play maker, great feel for the game, he’s key to us playing up tempo Green – Very versatile player, with Mack & Green both can play off the ball or with ball in their hands, need good spacing to allow them to play downhill and take advantage of speed, Green is good defender, strong, explosive & athletic Burke – Every time he steps on floor he leaves it all out there, plays with passion, good defender who will disrupt offenses, one thing on his mind is scoring the ball and we need that, improved his shot form, we worked a lot on his footwork stepping into his shot, also can go downhill well Curtis – Can play with ball in his hands or off the ball, one of our better shooters, fortunate to have gotten him, can really score, he has a learning curve especially on defense, but he’s constantly improving Thor – I love Thor, has as high of an IQ as anyone on our team, on our offense all spots are interchangeable and Thor can play any of those spots, great cutter, worked very hard on his shot this offseason and it’s paying off, sees the floor well, going to have a great year Cheatham – Rock solid, fits nicely with interchangeable parts of our offense, has been well coached in his career, most capable leader of the group, a lot of versatility Kavas – Can really shoot it, been one of the top 3-pt shooters in country last couple of seasons, been through a lot, so we’ll rely on him for leadership Yvan – World-class kid, very young and should be in the 2020 recruiting class, fortunate to have him, great size and strength even though never really has done strength conditioning, we’re going to need his big body in league play, going to continue to improve Cross – Great versatility, which attracted us to him, can shoot it, good pick and pop guy, great passer and it's his most impressive skill, getting in better shape with 15 pounds lost already Arop – Great kid, as good an athlete as we have on the roster, as a frosh he must adjust, but he’s making steady progress, shooting it better, improving constantly Stevenson – When you look at bodies in Big Ten ("and that’s one thing that scared me when I went to the Media Day in Chicago") we need bodies that can compete with that size and strength and physicality, Stevenson has that type of body at 6-6/245, very athletic, can knock down shots (no talk of whether they think he’ll be eligible earlier than semester; Sharpe mentioned he might be eligible early, but coach did not take the bait and just ignored the comment) Easley – Played great in Italy, can just shoot it, but also good footwork defensively, finds the open spot, always has great spacing, can make a play with the ball in his hands Piatkowski & Porter – Been great for us, just know how to play, how to fill a role No talk of Walker or Banton ITALY TRIP Liked seeing the guys get more comfortable with each other during Italy trip, getting to know each other, great benefit. So many cool experiences off the floor for these guys Whole experience was unforgettable Good learning opportunity on the court, some good moments, some teaching moments Just to have the teachable moments we did was good, was able to use the film to do some corrections once we got back Great trip from bonding side and learned a lot about our team FRIDAY EVENT A lot of fun Important for players to get in front of the fans in the building, good for fans to be able to put faces to the names Scrimmage was more like an all-star game Ross was only 1.5 hours late, but he put on a good show I had go back underneath because it was so loud, thought my pacemaker might explode Really needed to get out there and feel the energy in the building with the fans there, so that was good Closed door scrimmage coming up is a good opportunity too, as you can set your own rules, but nothing quite the same as having the fans there Our guys are tired of going against each other, so looking forward to exhibitions Season opener vs UC-Riverside, has good shooters, skilled 7-footer We know we're going to be undersized all year, even in the first game, so it'll be a good challenge out of the box
  20. Good to know - thanks. So that means he can take multiple officials to Lincoln then.
  21. That's big to get an official visit. He only gets 5, so him using 1 of those on NU, when he just as easily could take multiple unofficials for the short drive to Lincoln and maintain 5 officials for other schools farther away, is a good sign.
