A big night in the Big Ten on Thursday, with three games, so there’s lots to talk about. And there’s also this little basketball game on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, between Michigan State and Ohio State that’s creating a little bit of buzz. Let’s look at the Friday morning headlines.
We archive Gus Johnson’s greatest calls this season during the games Johnson calls for BTN, and you can watch them all here. Right now, watch Johnson’s best calls from Thursday’s Indiana-Illinois game, including some very nice shots and a celebrity (pssst! It’s Joe Buck) spotted in the crowd.
During the latest edition of “Big Ten Women’s Sports Report,” Kara Lentz offered fans a behind-the-scenes look into how Michigan State women’s basketball head coach Suzy Merchant balances being a coach and a mom. Watch the feature here and check out our entire collection of Big Ten video feature stories.
You know how the basketball floor at Minnesota’s Williams Arena is raised up? We’ve always sort of enjoyed that classic feel to the old arena, especially when coaches sit on the little stools above their team’s bench. We’ve also often wondered if teams especially prepare for playing on the elevated platform. Today Wisconsin’s athletic department posted a YouTube video showing how Bo Ryan prepares his squad for diving for a loose ball and falling gracefully off the raised court. Watch it in this post. Game starts at 7 p.m. ET.
