Holiday hoops: What lies ahead for hoops teams?

With less than two weeks of holiday shopping left before Christmas, BTN.com’s Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller rolled out their Christmas wish list for each of the 12 men’s basketball teams.

After looking at the numbers so far this season, our men’s basketball bloggers have some interesting requests. Read Part I here, read Part II here, and read all of their work right here before another busy weekend of men’s basketball, including two Saturday games on BTN/BTN2Go.

After the game, Mike Hall and Dave Revsine  join analysts Sam Vincent and Mike DeCourcy to break down all of Saturday’s action.

In addition, Penn State hosts Delaware State at 2 p.m. ET and that game will be shown live on the Big Ten Digital Network.

Other men’s games Saturday: Butler at Indiana, Purdue at Notre Dame, Nebraska at Oregon, Michigan at West Virginia and Tuskegee at Michigan State. Track the scores and stats on our college basketball scoreboard.

Also, for the month of December BTN has been offering fans the chance to take a survey involving the issues that come with Big Ten expansion and realignment. These questions touch on men’s and women’s basketball, specifically when it comes to possible divisions.

We want you tell us where you stand, too. Give us your answers in the survey over on this page. Thousands of people have already completed it, and the final survey results will be sent to the Big Ten Conference office.
