Did you see these recent Big Ten postgame press conference moments?
If one hasn’t been paying attention, Big Ten men’s basketball postgame press conferences have become appointment viewing.
The last few days, we’ve had drama, emotion and humor highlight what can often be boring TV.
It all started Sunday, first when Tom Crean questioned his team’s maturity following a season sweep vs. Michigan, and then when Wisconsin star Nigel Hayes stuck up for Zak Showalter’s defense on Northwestern point guard Bryant McIntosh in a moving “teammate” moment.
Things didn’t slow down late Tuesday night. Nebraska’s New Zealand, Australia and Canada trio of Tai Webster, Jack McVeigh and Jordy Tshimanga had the media, and themselves, cracking up following a win over Penn State (watch above). Meanwhile, Tom Izzo called out ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich, who announced the Spartans’ win vs. Ohio State, ultimately asking him to apologize to the Izzone for negative tweets.
Good news: There’s a pair of games on BTN tonight, so there might be more fun to come.
