  1. Thor

    He & Nana both should have redshirted last year but they didn't want to so, like you said "here we are".
  2. Thor

    Didn't get to watch the game today since I was at work, but they got crushed again today. Thor wound up with 3 points, 4 boards & 2 assists.
  3. Thor

    Iceland looked good for one quarter then it got ugly again. Thor had 7 points 4 boards & 5 assists in 26 minutes. Picked up three early fouls. The team looked much better wwith him on the floor. Iceland is one of the worst free throw shooting teams I've ever seen. Between that & missed layups it's hard to keep the score close. I think he has a chance to play this year, of course it's hard to judge the competition. He seems to have figured out defensive concepts and does go right some of the time. He won't play a lot but I could see him getting 10 minutes per game. He's actually a pretty good passer.
  4. Thor

    Iceland got crushed today but Thor had 6 points with 5 boards & 5 rebounds in 30 minutes. Could have had more assists if his teammates could shoot - not that he shot well either since he was 2 for 8 and 1 of 3 on free throws.

  7. Tai Webster in the Pros

    Not going well for Tai. Went 0-1 in 4 minutes yesterday, 1-12 in 21 minutes on 7/3 & didn't play in the 7/2 game. Combined 1-13, 1-5 on 3's, no FT's attempted 2 boards, 4 assists, 3 TO's and 2 steals.
  8. 2018-2019 Season Notes

    I'm good with six deep. Over the last 40ish years I've seen Husker teams that were two or threee deep with Big 8/Big 12/Big 10 deep talent. At least they have a starting five that belongs on the court.
  9. The Tyronn Lue Thread

    I guess we will find out what kind of coach he is now.
  10. Thor

    Thor will be representing Iceland at the European U20 championships. Plus I'm in the background of the pic for the article. Does that make me famous? http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211719272

  12. 2018-19 Depth Chart

    I think Nana can be effective off the bench. I thought he looked good in warm-ups last year. His jump shot looked good and he can jump out of the arena - his dunks during warm-ups were impressive. I understand that warm-ups are not the same as games, but the talent is there. Hopefully he has figured out the defensive end of the floor. One more thing I liked about him was that for most of warm-ups he acted like he was going to play. I'm a little more hesitant about Thor getting minutes, but since he's returning I would guess that he will be a chance before the freshmen. He's not McVeigh slow, but he's not super quick either. He didn't really warm up like he expected to play so it's hard to know what to expect. I think that if Watson (30 minutes), Allen (20-25), Palmer (30+), Copeland (30), Roby (30), Tshimanga (20) & Nana (10-15) can give decent minutes then Harris/Davis/Thor can use the few minutes left as defensive stoppers/shooters off the bench. The offseason development of Jordy & Nana will be key for this team. If they make big jumps, I expect big things. If not, it could be an NCAA bubble or worse situation.

    Someone has to get the minutes unless you think they are going with a 6 man rotation of Watson, Allen, Palmer, Copeland, Roby & Tshimanga. The only other returning players are Thor & Nana. I'm sure Harris & Davis will get a chance to play, but they're freshmen and will have a short leash. Heiman is likely to redshirt. That leaves three walk-ons (Costello, Trueblood & Borchardt). The first 6 will probably combine for 150-170 minutes per game. That leaves 30-50 for everyone else which probably puts a couple of the others in the 10-15 minute range with the most likely candidates the returning players.
