    NU v Wisco

    So how about some bball talk?

    Interesting game Sunday. Wisco is notorious for making it tough to score and NU has had an awful time putting the ball in the basket. Sounds like a bad combo. Wisco is giving up an average of 56 points a game...51.5 in their last 6.

    The good news is in their most recent game they didn't exactly spank PSU. PSU was within a point with a few minutes to go.

    NU's over/under? 45?

    NU could be in for another 70-31 beatdown.

    Until we figure out how to put the ball in the basket, it's going to be a long season.

    Go HUSKERS, play your best game of the season so far and pull the big upset.

    We could readily win this game if the 'Shooters' have a 'Hot' night. Good scoring/FT percentages, we can upset anyone in the conference.
    (But it's been 'hit' or 'miss;' with a lot more 'misses' than 'hits.') Here's rooting for a 'Hot' night! GBR!

    Maybe Tim can put a 'funnel' over the basket at the NE end of the court (every 3-pointer would be good; they score 2, we score 3).
    But don't think he could get permission.
    (Sure glad this forum doesn't get a lot of 'hits')

    The Huskers need to come out focused and with renewed energy for this game. This is probably going to be a steaky team this year in terms of energy. It seems like this game might be time for a high energy game.

    Two things.

    First, with Almeida with his ankle issue, it will be interesting to see how Miles uses 7'1" Freshman Vucetic.

    Second, the Huskers have a high-priority recruit, 6' 9" PF Matthew Atewe visiting the game. Hopefully, it will be a good crowd.

    I'll be captain obvious and say that if Gallegos has one of his "off nights" that NU has no chance...same with Talley. That could be said of any game I suppose but the less skilled offensive players and the younger guys are likely to struggle more than normal against a wisco defense.

    Miles wasn't too happy about the effort against OSU so I'd imagine that they will come out playing hard and if they do they can hold wisco to a reasonable score....Rey and Talley get hot...you never know.

    I see Illinois spanked OSU yesterday, conference wins will be tough to come by.

    Illinois might be the real deal. I thought maybe the loss at Purdue may have exposed them but beating OSU is pretty impressive.

    I just hope the basketball team can hold them to under what the football team did.

    Actually, I think they will.

    I have a few errands to run. Doubtful I will be around much for the game. But just wanted to say, "Go Huskers!"

    Let's hope team and fans put on a good show for Matthew Atewe.
