Big Ten play is a grind. Every coach and player, past and present, will attest to that. [ MORE: BTN2Go: Watch Wisconsin at No. 8 Iowa at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday ] No. 8 Iowa and Wisconsin are well aware of this fact entering Wednesday night’s highly anticipated rivalry game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Jon Crispin: What's up with star PG Melo Trimble, Maryland?

I’ve been criticized recently for saying that Melo Trimble is the best point guard in the country. For once, I won’t try to defend myself.

Fourth graders at Scottish Corners Elementary School in Dublin, Ohio, received an interesting lesson about law and courts Monday. The hypothetical case presented to the children involved, of all people, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Braxton Miller and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh. Even weirder: Miller and Harbaugh are “friends” in the hypothetical case, and the former is conspiring to help the rival Wolverines steal Ohio State’s plays. There’s more: Meyer knows about the friendship, plus he has proof that his former star sent Harbaugh a letter. Harbaugh and Miller weren’t on the same page about the letter. Harbaugh said Miller was

After a three-game stretch during which he’s averaged 27 points and 11 assists, Valentine is firmly back in the national player of the year race that some had called for Buddy Hield
