BP really put out some effort in this game, and really went after the ball. DG was good running the point, and Buckley showed he can run the point when DG needs a rest. Haluska's shooting touch looked really good in this game, and he shot the ball when he got it in the open, and didn't force it when he was covered. It's an exhibition game, so the emotion will be hard to come by, both from the crowd and the team, but they turned up the heat when they needed to.
I was also glad to see them run a little bit more. If I remember correctly, they didn't run at all early in the season for the past 2 years. Maybe it was just the team they were playing, but they seemed a little looser than they have in other openings. I was happy with what I saw, and I'm looking forward to this season.
I like seeing DG with 10 assists and only one turnover.
We were missing our two best shooters.
I'm totally down with Haluska seeing quite a bit of time this year. I'll take points any way we can get em.
keep in mind the original post was by a hawk fan so of course hes gonna be critical of the cyclones lol. go to his profile and you will see his pic of the hawk logo, he just doesnt want that displayed
i dont see how you can be upset with DG having 9 pts and 10 assists to just 1 TO
I liked Hamilton. Nice long shot to open the game. Not quite as quick as I would like him but it will improve over the year and anyway, its not his thing.
A big concern for me is this stat: pts. in the paint.....UNO 28 ISU 26. Whoa, that should not happen against a D II foe, not good, Big XII teams are going to tear us up in the paint if we don't get better post play.
I understand UNO is a D2 school.....but
The Mavericks have 10 returning players from the team that went 25-7 last season. UNO won the final NCC championship and a berth in the NCAA Division II Regionals. The 25 wins established a school record.
A darn good D2 School, well coached, with alot of continuity from last year.....
I thought ISU did fine against some good competition....:smile:
Is this picture better:
The game was pretty sloppy. The shooting looks improved, but the inside game is still not here at all way to many missed shots close to the hoop. Point gaurd position was okay today still struggles there as well Dg did alright, buckley did okay too. The ball handling has to get better and the offense once again stands around to much move, move, move!! Not getting the ball inbounds was rediculous and they had to call a time out no excuse for that. All in all I was not impressed with todays performance against a way smaller team. If you ask me not much improvement from a year ago, I like Pomlee out of most freshmen because he has the size and body that reminds me of Fizer. It is the first game against different comp, but much needed improvement in a lot of areas to compete in the big twelve.
