Our panel says the top hoops freshman is ...

Take a look around the Big Ten, and you’ll see many of them: freshmen playing big roles for teams. In fact, it has become common for freshmen to come in and not just contribute but grab the starring role. That’s the case at Michigan. The No. 1 team in the nation has arguably the best collection of freshmen in the Big Ten that includes Glenn Robinson III, Nik Stauskas, Mitch McGary, Caris LeVert and Spike Albrecht. The Wolverines quintet is joined by other standout freshmen who are helping make the Big Ten so good this season, including the likes of Wisconsin’s Sam

No. 3 Indiana throttles rival Purdue, 97-60

Cody Zeller scored 13 of his 19 points in the first half, Christian Watford added 17 points and No. 3 Indiana routed rival Purdue 97-60 on Wednesday night to hand the Boilermakers their worst loss at Mackey Arena. The Hoosiers (19-2, 7-1 Big Ten) have won four straight overall and five consecutive road games in league play dating to last season. They remained tied for the Big Ten lead with No. 1 Michigan. The Wolverines also won Wednesday night, beating Northwestern 68-46, to set up a Saturday night showdown between the league leaders in Bloomington, one of the most highly

Big Ten Geeks: Defense and Deshaun

In a matchup of the Big Ten’s two best defenses, it was Ohio State that prevailed with a nine-point home victory over Wisconsin. Both of these teams rely on good old fashioned B1G defense: make you miss (without fouling), then secure the carom. Turnovers are optional. True to form, both defenses controlled the glass at their respective ends, and neither team got to the foul line on a regular basis. In fact, for the first time in Bo Ryan’s 12 seasons, the Badgers failed to earn a single free throw. This is a rare occurrence, to be sure, but Wisconsin’s

Today's links: Boilermakers vs. Hoosiers tonight

It’s Super Wednesday, America. That means two games on BTN, including No. 3 Indiana at Purdue, one of the best rivalries in college sports. The Hoosiers want to remain in the Big Ten title hunt, while the Boilermakers are fighting for their postseason life and need all the quality wins they can muster. Let’s start daily links there. Yes, many of the players on the teams are very familiar with each other from AAU and prep days. Eight players who are expected to start tonight are from the state. In 18 Indiana-Purdue games over the past 10 years, there have never

Super Wednesday featured nation's No. 1 & No. 3 teams

No. 1 Michigan took down Northwestern (recap) and No. 3 Indiana blew out rival Purdue (recap) in our latest Super Wednesday doubleheader, presented by Buffalo Wild Wings. As we do for every Super Wednesday, we live blogged throughout the action. Catch up on what BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina and the Big Ten Geeks said right here.

Mock brackets: Where do Big Ten teams land?

It’s that time of the week, time to look at the mock brackets. And the Big Ten remains well-represented with seven teams in each of the mock brackets that I check each week. The only conference with more bids is the Big East, which has eight or nine tourney teams—depending on the bracket you check. Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com Michigan a No. 1 in the Midwest playing North Carolina Central. Indiana a No. 2 in the Midwest playing Montana. Michigan State a No. 3 in the East playing Stony Brook. Ohio State a No. 4 in the South playing Louisiana

Power Rankings: Minnesota continues to drop

Just a couple weeks ago, Minnesota was 15-1 and in the top 10 of the national polls. Fast forward to today, and the Gophers have lost four straight – a funk that keeps them dropping in my Power Rankings. Where does your team land on my latest list? Find out in this post. Oh, and feel free to send me your thoughts, either in the comment box at the bottom of the post or on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina).

Whiteboard: Purdue + Michigan = big week for IU

This is a nice week that is anchored by a Titanic prime-time clash on Saturday: No. 1 Michigan at No. 3 Indiana, which began the season No. 1. This should be a battle of first-place teams, with the winner in the driver’s seat to win the Big Ten. There are some other tantalizing matchups, including Wisconsin at No. 11 Ohio State, Indiana at Purdue, Iowa at No. 23 Minnesota, Illinois at No. 13 Michigan State and Wisconsin at Illinois. There is nothing better than a Purdue-Indiana hoop game in late January to heat up your house. You just know the

Big Ten Geeks: It's Ola-doeverything for Indiana

Indiana held serve against Michigan State to move into a tie with Michigan atop the Big Ten standings. Normally, I’d use this opportunity to point out that although Indiana won by 5, the outcome actually suggests that Michigan State is the better team. But I don’t think that’s true here, because Indiana was equal to or better than the Spartans in all but one category—three-point shooting. MSU made 11 of its 23 attempts from behind the three-point line, and I’ll go ahead and call that an aberration. While IU’s perimeter defense isn’t exactly a strength (teams are more than willing

Ex-B1G stars live tweet during Indiana-Michigan State game

Indiana’s A.J. Guyton and Michigan State’s Mateen Cleaves are some of the best players to wear their respective jerseys. During Sunday afternoon’s Michigan State-Indiana game at Assembly Hall, the two old rivals took to Twitter to interact about the big-time matchup that featured two one-loss Big Ten teams. See some of the highlights of their interactions in this post. For the entire interaction, check out Guyton’s (@ajguyton) and Cleaves’ (@Mateen_Cleaves) timelines. @Mateen_Cleaves what a great start to a college basketball game.
