Settles: 3 under-the-radar players in Big Ten tourney semifinals

It’s the semifinals of the Big Ten tourney, and, chances are, role players will play a significant role in helping guide their team to Sunday’s Big Ten final. [ MORE: View our Big Ten tournament central page ] Who are a few likely candidates, considering recent play and semifinal matchups? Here are my picks! P.J. Thompson, Purdue. Purdue’s regular-season finale vs. Wisconsin had the feeling of a championship game. Both teams were battling for a double-bye in the Big Ten tournament. Purdue was hoping to make history with a school record 17th home win. A victory for Wisconsin would’ve probably

BTN LiveBIG: Spartans, Wolverines forge a brighter future for Flint

In the weeks following the revelation last fall that the water supply of Flint, Mich., contained lead, the University of Michigan and Michigan State communities made herculean contributions in dealing with the initial public health crisis. Now, members of both institutions are turning their attention to finding lasting solutions for residents of the city. Marty Kaufman, chair of the Earth and Resource Science Department at the University of Michigan’s Flint campus, is one of those people. He headed up a research project through the university’s Geographic Information Center that identified and mapped out the locations of lead pipes in Flint, working

Four on the Floor: Big Ten tourney moves to semifinals

And then there were four. We recap all of the Big Ten Men's Basketball action from Friday with video, top moments, and more. Maryland scored a tourney record number of points, Michigan's Derrick Walton Jr. set an assist record, and four teams move just one win away from Sunday's championship.

Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament: All-Friday team

The quarterfinal round of the 2016 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament was filled with a little bit of everything. We saw an upset win by No. 8-seeded Michigan in the opener, blowout victories by Purdue and Michigan State in Games 2 and 3, and Maryland hold on to a win in the nightcap. With four games on the slate, Big Ten fans got the chance to see plenty of outstanding individual performances as well. BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Sean Merriman offer their All-Friday teams from the third day of the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament. We did it Wednesday and Thursday,

Dienhart: Maryland comes alive in the postseason

Maryland began the year as the favorite to win the Big Ten, but the Terps never reached that goal, finishing in a tie for third place with a 12-6 mark. Maryland even went 2-4 down the stretch. That’s changed as the Terrapins have come alive in the postseason. Save for seeing a 25-point lead shaved to six, the Terps looked good tonight in dispatching No. 11 Nebraska, 97-86, as Maryland was white-hot from beyond the arc in hitting its first seven 3-pointers. The Terrapins will play No. 2 Michigan State on Saturday for a chance to play for Big Ten

Dienhart: Michigan State flexes, advances to semifinals

Michigan State arrived in Indy as the hottest team in the Big Ten. And, the Spartans show no signs of cooling off. Tonight’s 81-54 demolition of No. 7 Ohio State was impressive. It was the third time Michigan State had beaten Ohio State since Feb. 24. Tom Izzo’s squad looks to be peaking at just the right time. MSU will play the winner of No. 3 Maryland-No. 11 Nebraska on Saturday for the right to play for the Big Ten tourney title. The Buckeyes’ season ends with a thud. Despite a 20-13 overall mark and an 11-7 Big Ten record,

Video: Watch interviews from Ohio State's Pro Day

BTN aired a 30-minute “Ohio State Pro Day” show spotlighting the highlights as Buckeye players performed drills for NFL Scouts in Columbus on Friday. The show will air again – use our TVV schedule to find upcoming days and times. In this post, we’ve included a few interviews from the show. BTN’s Lisa Byington and Stanley Jackson talk to Jalin Marshall, Joey Bosa, Cardale Jones and Braxton Miller. Here are those interviews from our YouTube page:    

Jess Settles' Three Takes: A closer look at Friday's action

Purdue is playing exceptional basketball at just the right time. And so is Nebraska’s Shavon Shields. What does Maryland have to do to snap out of this funk? Here are three takes leading right up to Friday night’s games on BTN/BTN2Go. Boilermakers steaming along The Boilers made quick work of the worn down Illini by dominating all phases of the game. We all know how difficult it is for opponents to match up with the Skyline of A.J. Hammons, Caleb Swanigan and Isaac Haas, but it is the outside shooting of P.J. Thompson, Vince Edwards, Ryan Cline, Kendall Stephens, and

Dienhart: Purdue towers over Illinois, heads to semifinals

Purdue drove 60 miles south to Indianapolis for the Big Ten tourney with big hopes, and the Boilermakers are off to a good start, pounding Illinois in its opener. It’s difficult to fathom that Purdue has played any better today at any other time this year. The Boilers were shooting well, which made the play of big men A.J. Hammons, Isaac Haas and Caleb Swanigan even more effective. It all was too much for an undermanned No. 12 Illinois team that was playing its third game in three days. No. 4 Purdue will take on No. 8 Michigan on Saturday
