Long game, longer notes...
Just want to see improvement and effort game to game. Also with the new coach I feel pretty privileged to see hoiberg work...see maybe some offensive sets and how he tools with lineups throughout the year. Like frosty, I think we will start seeing positive change manifest when we get Fred's recruits in (and develop!)
Got inside early which is a sight for sore eyes!
Keep an eye on Morgan for the Thunderbirds, apparently hes a former 5 star who transferred after injury.
Yvan out early 4 min in. Hope to see defense consistent and aggressive even when yvan is out
Dachon burke is our benny parker! Lotta soul in this team, I can tell. We'll see it as the team and core matures. Well worth the season tix.
-14 min mark 1st
Sloppy few minutes there. Had a few bad sets of wimpy Nebraska pass it around.
Farah faucett's son is knifing through our D.
A few nice shots and FTs (we are hitting them today), but not much scoring.
The nice thing about kids like Yvan with his wide frame but coming in lean is that you get the length with the speedy feet, and dont sacrifice on defensive end. Love this guy, hes talented. Do things right and he might be a monster inside. Need more like him.
Defense in sync today! Sloppy at times but finding ways to not fall behind and contest everything.
19-12 8 min mark.
Finally getting the offense rolling around 5 min mark, lead up to 14, then 11 at 28-17 with 3 left.
Its true what I heard last week, we have to get that swagger going again. The looks we saw in Italy. I think we could see a team playing with passion might be 3 or 4 times better than the crap we saw game 1.
Heheh, our little guys seem to like running into the teeth of the trees with no fear.
Cross has absolutely no fear of taking any shot, ever. Might be a useful talent down line if he can up his percentages. Honestly I like him a lot going inside and attacking, getting to the line. Plenty of value there but he can shoot a bit as well. Halftime.
Bad team, but finally beating a team like this like we should. Defense is looking amazing, I love this brand of Doc scary smother D. Have to build on that foundation although I know Fred's main thing is the offensive innovation.
Team definitely has some big things to fix on offense, or to invent. Because its ugly right now. But getting this win is a huge deal for confidence, every bit helps. I think the offense comes with time and chemistry, practice.
8 min 2H, game really slowed down. This ain't over yet. 54-51 huskers.
Idk anything about the thunderhawks, but you can tell a team is well coached by how organized and them not quitting. Have to show we care more. Southern Utah has crazy swagger, its scaring me. These small teams arent scared of ANYONE. You have to impose your will, I want to see that.
Another not so great 3pt shooting, and OVR scoring outing, but markedly better. And we killed it at the line!! [Until we didnt]
Also noticed we added male cheerleaders like people were talking about. Pretty excited to see that, it is good for the college game. They have the bass in the cheers I always love to hear in the tourney and at places like Kansas, why cant we do it too? Love it.
Let's adopt a Russell westbrook philosophy, "Why not?"
Woohoo, 2 OTs was fun. Let's keep conditioning because you could tell they were exhausted late. Just win the damn game outright next time. FT shooting really fell off at end.
The ironic jeering cheering(Chicago bears fans crossover, think we're becoming similar) is out of hand. Just support them guys! Bad fans sometimes. #notthegreatestfans But great ones who stayed. Gonna win one eventually... right? O/u 5 wins GBR
