Player of the Year Tracker: See our guy's top 5

Now that all but one team (Nebraska) has officially reached the halfway point of the conference hoops season, it’s time unveil the first installment of my weekly Big Ten Player of the Year tracker. Michigan State’s Gary Harris tops my first list. Agree? Feel free to enter your thoughts in the comment box at the bottom of the post. [ MORE: Tom Dienhart ranks the week’s top Big Ten games ] 1. Gary Harris, So., G – 44%, 18.4 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 2.7 apg, 2.0 spg. Have you heard Michigan State has had an injury-riddled season? Of course, you have.

IU hasn't 'announced anything official' on helmets

Indiana unveiled a half-dozen new helmets last offseason. Could the Hoosiers add even more lids this offseason? A picture of four new helmets was shared on social media recently, and the team neither confirmed nor denied the new designs when asked about them. Here’s what an Indiana spokesperson emailed BTN.com: “We haven’t announced anything official.” Indiana football getting MORE hideous helmets? http://t.co/zF8s9bjX9L Make it stop IU… pic.twitter.com/SqIxS5J2WK — LostLettermen.com (@LostLettermen) February 3, 2014 If Indiana adds these helmets in 2014, it would up its total to 10 – assuming it keeps all of last year’s designs. That’s a lot of

Yarina: A look at top teams' remaining slates

Here’s something everyone should be able to agree on: At the midway point of the Big Ten season, the conference title race is down to three teams. The teams are Michigan (8-1), Michigan State (8-1) and Iowa (6-3). The rest of the Big Ten is competing for fourth place and a first-round bye in the Big Ten tourney. Who’s going to win? That’s a tough question, but I’ve broken out the remaining schedule for each contender to try to make sense of it all. With all the parity this season, no one will be surprised to find out each team

Russell Rules: Wilson 6th B1G QB to win Super Bowl

Editor’s note: In the first edition of this story, Michigan State’s Earl Morrall was not accounted for as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback. Morrall came off the bench and replaced Johnny Unitas in the Baltimore Colts’ Super Bowl V win. Russell Wilson became the sixth Big Ten quarterback to win a Super Bowl on Sunday night. Wilson, the one-year Wisconsin standout who led the Badgers to the 2012 Rose Bowl, joined Len Dawson (Purdue), Earl Morrall (Michigan State), Bob Griese (Purdue), Tom Brady (Michigan) and Drew Brees (Purdue) in the distinguished group.

How about these wild Big Ten finishes?

Both of the Big Ten’s early Saturday games came down to the wire and were won by the visitor by one point following last-second misses from the home team. In the first game, Sam Dekker missed a would-be game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in No. 13 Wisconsin’s loss vs. No. 23 Ohio State. Then, Minnesota had a couple chances to win it at the buzzer in its loss vs. Northwestern. Watch the finishes in this post. VIDEO: How about those @NUMensBball & @OhioStateHoops finishes today?! We've paired both in one video clip. WATCH – http://t.co/Pjy87w5pBj — Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork)

Twitter: Funny reactions to MSU's new Nike uniform

Michigan State is debuting its new Nike “Hyper Elite Dominance” alternate uniform Saturday afternoon vs. Georgetown at Madison Square Garden. The uniform, which Nike says “draws on past successes for motivation,” is a modern “bronze” version of Michigan State’s Magic Johnson-era threads. See the new design and the Twitter reaction to it in this post. THIS is what bronze looks like. http://t.co/r3BRwMdVTi — Chris Solari (@chrissolari) February 1, 2014 You have to be kidding me with these State alternates. — Alex Cook (@alexcook616) February 1, 2014 Fight for the only colors, green and dijon mustard… — Bryan Mac (@Bry_Mac) February

Video: Shannon Scott goes 5-hole on Frank Kaminsky

No doubt about it, Shannon Scott has struggled during Ohio State’s recent Big Ten slide. The junior guard came off the bench for the first time this season Saturday at Wisconsin, and he just so happened to help lead the Buckeyes to a 59-58 road win. Oh, and he also tallied one of the best assists you’ll see all season. Let’s just say, Scott caught Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky by surprise on his dime to Trey McDonald. Watch the highlight pass in this post. VIDEO: #B1G assist of the year? Shannon Scott goes 5-hole, Trey McDonald throws it down. WATCH –

Video: Bo Ryan shoots scowl, busts out dance move

Bo Ryan and sideline scowls are a common occurrence. Bo Ryan and sideline dances, however, are not. The passionate Wisconsin basketball coach gave us both the common and rare occurrence all in one hilarious sequence early in the second half of Wisconsin’s 59-58 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon. Watch it in this post. VIDEO: You HAVE to watch this Bo Ryan scowl, dance move from today's @BadgerMBB game. Trust us.

Nike unveils new Michigan State, Ohio State alternates

Nike is unveiling a new basketball uniform design, and like last year when it introduced those (awful) logo-centric uniforms, Michigan State and Ohio State have been selected to wear the new threads. Don’t worry, these new “Hyper Elite Dominance” uniforms are far better than their predecessor. See the uniforms in this post.

Yarina: State of Big Ten hoops address

President Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union Address tonight. That being the case, I thought I’d do something super-cheesy and address the state of each Big Ten men’s basketball team. See my take on all 12 teams in this post. [ MORE: Check out Stephen Bardo’s latest Big Ten Power Rankings ] Editor’s note: Team records are through January 27 action. ILLINOIS (2-6) It’s hard to be successful when the shots aren’t falling, and the Illini can’t be accused of torching any nets across the Big Ten. How bad has it gotten? Illinois shoots 36.2 percent in
