In just their second season in the Big Ten, the Cornhuskers won the Legends Division. But that accomplishment was muted a bit by a 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the league title game. Still, this is Bo Pelini’s best team since arriving in Lincoln in 2008, as it was fueled by the No. 1 total offense (462.2 ypg) and No. 2 scoring offense (35.1 ppg) in the league.

It’s heat-check time, and Iowa junior Devyn Marble keeps hitting. The guard, fresh off a 30-point effort Saturday, hit 6-of-8 3-pointers on his way to scoring 27 points in Wednesday’s 90-46 victory over South Carolina State. If it weren’t for the lopsided score, Marble, who sat much of the second half, probably would have tallied his first back-to-back 30-point games. Either way, Marble’s night was remarkable. Watch all six of Marble’s treys now.
