Busy time for us at LNH, but plenty of analysis going on behind the scenes. A quick share today is a PDF with advanced statistics for the U.S. teams at the 2014 adidas Nations event.

Gophers: 2013-14 Recap Part 1

Gophers: 2013-14 Recap Part 1
June 22, 2014

Minnesota as #7 in the Big Ten
The Gophers are slotted at the top of the group [#7]  thanks in large part to them returning 2 of the Big Ten’s top 3 returning offensive players. Junior Andre Hollins and criminally underrated senior Austin Hollins are difference makers that can win games for this team.” – LNH, Preseason 2013-14

We picked Minnesota to finish 7th in the Big Ten and believed they would wind up just barely on either side of the bubble. That’s precisely what happened. The Gophers finished all alone in 7th place and narrowly missed making the NCAA tournament. After being named the NIT’s top overall #1-seed, the team finished out the year by winning five in a row en route to the tournament’s championship.

Ask LNH: Oto, Andre and Injuries

Ask LNH: Oto, Andre and Injuries
June 8, 2014

  • Could Dre Hollins be back in 2015-16?
  • Oto on the floor in 2014-15?

Question:
Andre Hollins wasn’t the same after he got hurt last season. Will he be healthy next season?

LNH says:
The rising senior guard is far and away Minnesota’s best returning player, but his health is a significant concern. It hasn’t been talked about much in the traditional media and the national folks may not even mention it heading into the season. However, it’s a relevant storyline to the 2014-15 season.

Dre Hollins suffered a bad ankle injury in January, but returned to action after missing a couple of games. Potentially more serious is that he’s been dealing with hip issues as well.
