  1. Someone will need to step up and be “the guy” in order for this to be a tournament team. Terran Petteway willed his team to the tournament and we need someone with that type of attitude next year. I think the obvious choice is Trey. I hope he has a monster senior year and shows this stellar recruiting class what it takes to win in the Big Ten so we can keep it rolling into 2022-23.
  2. don’t also forget Brennon Clemmons Jr.!
  3. Xavier coach Travis Steele on CJ Wilcher (from goxavier.com): "C.J. is the best shooter that I saw in the class of 2020 in the entire country. C.J. can make shots from all over the floor, whether in the post, off the catch or off the dribble. He also really knows how to play and he knows how to use his body. He sees things on the floor and can make his teammates better. He is a great shooter, but he is a lot more than that. He's a scorer and he brings a different dimension on the offensive end."
  4. Keep your eye on this transfer, Aidan Igiehon "The Irish Hulk": https://247sports.com/college/louisville/Article/Aidan-Igiehon-transferring-from-Louisville-162451097/ Great offer list out of high school: https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2019/aidan-igiehon-180530#school-interests
  5. Robin mentioned as many as 5 players transferring this year, with only 1 of them earning significant minutes. The individual player meetings are March 15-16. #TransferportalSZN
  6. Safe to say Yvan gone as well? 0 minutes the last two games. 6 minutes in last 4 games.
  7. The plan before the year was to sit and work on his weaknesses so that he can be a reliable player for next year. He basically has done that, plus a few spot minutes here and there and that one game that he caught fire. I’m not sure why that plan would have changed. I really hope the McGowens brothers are not 50/50...
  8. Does anybody think Kobe or Thor comes back next year for their extra year of eligibility? Thor doesn't seem likely. We were pretty good his freshmen year, but since then he has been on some pretty bad teams. I'm not sure why he would want to stick around. Kobe is interesting. He's not going pro. Is he working on a masters? I could see him playing one more year and be another shooter off the bench. That leaves us possibly 1 over the scholarship limit and I could see any of the following leaving: Wood - last minute fill-in which rarely work out. Remember this was supposed to be Kobe King Arop - does not fit in any position, even in a "positionless" system Yvan - quickly losing minutes to Andre Shamiel - although, where would he go from here? 4th school in 5 years? Teddy - wild card. Will he try for the G league or overseas? Banton - is he happy here? Lately I can't tell... Can anybody name the last year we didn't have a scholarship player transfer? looking through rosters, I think it was 2004-05. This leaves Trey, Lat, Derrick, Andre, and Lakes (he was supposed to sit this year anyways) as the "most likely to return" guys along with Bryce, Keisei, and Wilhelm. It also seems like the coaches are recruiting for at least one more spot. Will be an interesting off-season, as always.
  9. Rivals lists him as a point guard. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2022/ramel-lloyd-jr-268353
  10. Nebraska Vs Creighton should be Dec 11th (according to Robin)
  11. Awesome, thanks for the breakdown. Sounds like we will have elite shooters all over the court the next two years. Bryce, Keisei, Lat, Lakes, Teddy is a potentially insane 3 point shooting lineup.
  12. Who has the scouting report on Bryce? What makes him a 5 star? Is he going to play more of a Delano Banton role or off-ball Teddy Allen role? Or neither?
  13. I don’t want to spoil Tunnel Talk too much but sounds like Nebraska will make the top 5. I think everybody assumes this though.
  14. Just watched his highlight tape. He shoots righty but I swear finished every dunk and layup with his left hand.
  15. Some good nuggets from Steve Sipple’s article: https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/sipple/steven-m-sipple-a-prediction-on-spielman-freds-new-players-to-watch-and-hot-take/article_7af7f3bc-4258-51ae-902a-170ba3f51589.html Transitioning to hoops: Keep an eye on Lat Mayen. That's the buzz I'm hearing as the Nebraska men's basketball team pushes through the early stages of its return to workouts. The 6-foot-9, 205-pound Mayen, a transfer from Chipola (Florida) College (by way of TCU), apparently has an effective jump shot and enough of an all-around game to crack Fred Hoiberg's starting lineup, if not become the team's best player this coming season. He'll have two seasons of eligibility at NU. I'm also intrigued by what I'm hearing about Kobe Webster, a 6-foot transfer from Western Illinois, and Teddy Allen, a 6-5 transfer from Western Nebraska Community College. Webster shows up on WIU film as a tough competitor and he's evidently shooting the ball well here. Meanwhile, Allen's game isn't all that pretty, but he's living up to his reputation as an effective scorer.
  16. Robin's starting 5 as of the May 15th Tunnel Talk (This is the only thing I'll share. Pay up to read the rest!) My starters right now would be, assuming the waivers are granted:Dalano BantonTrey McGowensKobe KingTeddy AllenLat Mayen
  17. If he does reclassify to 2020 I don’t see a kid who’s going to rush to college to play limited minutes or redshirt. I hope we get him but also hopefully we can strike a balance between Sanogo, Yvan, and Walker. It would be a good problem to have I guess!
  18. As much as I hate to say it, I think a great comp is Ethan Wragge. He played for the wrong team but that kid could shoot (also 47% from three his senior year)
  19. I think it’s officially safe to start predicting starting lineups now that the roster is (probably) final. My prediction: PG Mack 35 mpg SG Green or Burke 30 mpg SF Cheatham 30 mpg PF Kavas 25 mpg C Yvan or Cross 25 mpg 6 Green or Burke 20 mpg 7 Stevenson 15 mpg 8 Yvan or Cross 15 mpg 9 Curtis 5 mpg 10 Thor & walkons 0-1 mpg RS Arop RS Banton RS Walker 9 man rotation with plenty of depth, besides PG. I don’t think these grad transfers came here to come off the bench...
  20. Here is a link to his bio on the St John’s website: https://redstormsports.com/coaches.aspx?rc=260&path=mbball Analytics expert and originally from Italy
  21. 3 visits locked in for this weekend (and working on a 4th): Jayce Johnson - SR C Cam Mack - SO PG Yvan Ouedruago - FR SF/PF
  22. This list will be fun to follow over the next few months. Especially having 5+ scholarships open for next year. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/26530279/college-basketball-transfer-rankings-2019-20-2020-21
  23. Does anybody know where I can find the infamous Herbie spinning a basketball hat? Or at least get on a waiting list to receive one?
