    Best line-up for tonight's game

    I think that it would be Brackins, JVB, DG, Boozer and Petey. These guys are all pretty quick and good defenders. I think we'll also see Lee out there because of his defense. Who is your 5?

    Re: Best line-up for tonight's game

    Well, Brackins is a no-brainer.

    You've got to have DG in there -- he's pretty quick.

    You have to try JVB for his potential at mismatches. But he's probably too slow for defense. (You think he's quick and a good defender? I guess I always think he's big and slow -- but a matchup problem on the perimiter because of his height. Maybe quick for a post player but we don't need quick post defenders against Nebraska.)

    Buckley seems like a good idea -- quick and his defense is coming along. But if his defense isn't stellar . . .

    I expect a big dose of Haluska for defense, and maybe Lee.

    Petey's always going to be there.

    Hamilton? Doesn't seem like he'd matchup well against Nebraska. Possibly a positive on the offense, but a negative on the defense.

    Boozer's the wildcard to me. Lately he's really been assertive. Give him a chance and see what happens.

    What we need is a quick big guy -- who can defend the perimeter but be a matchup problem in the post on offense.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Who got the most minutes when we beat them last time?

    If we have 3 guys hit double figures we could win. Chances of that are unlikely.

    Re: Best line-up for tonight's game

    The defensive mindset has netted us little.

    I say...Brackins, Hamilton, Boozer, Buckley and Garrett. Brackins is option 1. Option 2 is to take it to the rack. We need to score points and I believe its the only way we can score enough on the road (we'll get more FT's too) to win.

    Re: Best line-up for tonight's game

    I wonder if we'll go 4 guards to match their size.

    We can't afford to play their game because they'll beat us that way. I think we expose their height issue and use our bigs.

    DG, Petey, Booze, Brackins, and Hamilton.

    Brackins posting up all night. Once they start double and triple teaming him. Get him outside and have DG posting up Cookie Miller.

    They came back on us last time by throwing a press on us. I expect that. I would love to see DG and Buckley out there together to break the press.

    I agree with Brackins, JVB, Boozer, Peterson, DG. We'll have size and some speed.

    yuck...

    Keep the lineup the same as it normally is and use JVB, Boozer, Buckley as 6-8. No need to go any further on the bench unless you want to give Eik some small minutes.
