DP and Tom talk Husker Hoops as momentum builds for a college basketball season.

Early Break: Can Fred Hoiberg fix one of the biggest things that has plagued Nebrasketball for decades?

  • What problem might that be, besides obviously having zero NCAA Tournament wins? QUALITY bench depth. Nebraska has rarely felt confident in going to the bench in a long time, outside of maybe having a good 6th man in some years…but you look at other teams around the B1G, and while Nebraska may have had more talented starters the past 2 years, they were severely flawed beyond that.
  • Doc Sadler, Barry Collier, and Tim Miles all struggled to fill out a quality team. They all had decent starters at times, but just had a completely weak bench. A major key to making a run in tournaments is having quality depth beyond the starters. Nebraska now has 4 open scholarships again with the news of Amir Harris and Karrington Davis joining Brady Heiman in the transfer portal….can they get quality depth as soon as this year, or is that a lost cause?

Early Break: Nebrasketball loses out on 7-footer Jayce Johnson, as he chooses Marquette instead

  • It’s the first real miss for Nebraska for a guy they’ve been heavily on—you can’t get them all. But it’s a bummer to not have an inside presence. What’s next?
  • Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Early Break: Robin Washut (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple

  • Marquette jumps in the race for Jayce Johnson..how should Husker fans feel about their chances of getting the 7-foot Utah transfer?
  • What do we know about ‘late bloomer’ Kevin Cross?

Early Break: Nebrasketball gets their first grad transfer of the Fred Hoiberg era, landing Haanif Cheatham from Florida Gulf Coast

  • Cheatham is a former top 100 player coming out of high school who started his career at Marquette, then went to Florida Gulf Coast, where last year he averaged 13.2 ppg and 4.8 rpg in 10 games before injuring his shoulder and missing the rest of the season
  • Cheatham drew interest from other solid Power 5 schools but chose Nebraska after

Early Break: Chris Basnett (Lincoln Journal Star) / Shut Up Sipple

  • Cam Mack says he’ll visit Nebrasketball…what exactly would he bring if he committed to Hoiberg?
  • Are you convinced this season has to be bad for Nebrasketball, or could they actually be decent if they get some decent grad transfers?
  • How soon do you expect to see some commits for Abdelmassih/Gates in recruiting?
