Big Ten Geeks: Huskers Keep Hope Alive

Michigan State used a run out of intermission to create separation from Iowa in an eventual 10-point win. Both teams scored nearly at will in this one, but the Spartans’ outstanding three-point shooting masked a high turnover rate that is becoming worrisome. This has been Tom Izzo’s best-ever team at limiting turnovers (at least in the tempo-free era), but the past three games have seen Michigan State turn it over on nearly a quarter of its trips. Is this a temporary blip, the result of some long-absent players getting back into the groove? The Spartans had better hope so, as

Indiana, others to wear new adidas unis in postseason

The Big Ten tournament will feature a few new uniforms, thanks to adidas outfitting Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin with special “Made in March” alternates. The uniforms were designed to pay tribute to the unique history of the schools and, according to the official release, “provide the teams with the most advanced uniform system and basketball apparel technology so they can take on the challenges and intense play of March.” [ MORE: Here’s a look at all of adidas’ “Made in March” uniforms ] Michigan and Wisconsin agreeing to don an alternate design for the postseason is no big shock.

Video: Will Sheehey makes short, sweet Senior Night speech

The star player of Indiana’s senior class usually has so many people to thank and so many great memories to share during the team’s annual Senior Night ceremony. On Wednesday night, Sheehey, the star of Indiana’s 2014 senior class, spoke for 56 seconds. One longtime Indiana scribe thinks it might have been the shortest such speech. Either way, Sheehey made the most of the 56 seconds and left with a bang. Here’s how Sheehey ended it: “I’m the luckiest guy in the world, because I have the best teammates in the world, I have the best coaches in the world,

Wisconsin tops Purdue, Nebraska sweeps IU

We had two exciting games on the final Super Wednesday doubleheader of the Big Ten basketball season. In the first game of the night, Nebraska went into Assembly Hall and completed the season sweep of Indiana. No. 9 Wisconsin followed with a 76-70 win over Purdue on Senior Night at the Kohl Center. The victory marked the Badgers’ first eight-game Big Ten winning streak since 1940-41. Catch up on all the scores, stats and video highlights in this post.

Video: Relive Will Sheehey's top Indiana moments

Will Sheehey was part of the recruiting class that helped make Indiana relevant again. Sheehey, out of Florida, arrived at Indiana with future 2013 NBA Draft pick Victor Oladipo. The Hoosiers struggled in his first season, racking up a 12-20 record, but they have gone 69-26 since. For that, plus his inspired play along the way, Sheehey will garner plenty of love during tonight’s Senior Night festivities. Watch the ceremony on BTN2Go. With Sheehey – in addition to Evan Gordon, Jeff Howard and Taylor Wayer – playing his final regular-season game at Assembly Hall tonight, I’ve compiled a collection of

Five B1G stars appear in latest ESPN NBA Mock Draft

The college basketball regular season is coming to a close, which means that it’s time for ESPN Insider Chad Ford’s annual NBA Mock Draft update. Ford lists five Big Ten stars in his latest Mock Draft 3.0, which was created based on NBA standings through March 4.

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan stands alone

Michigan won the Big Ten title outright last night on the strength of a shockingly easy win at Illinois. Sure, the Illini don’t have an impressive record, but John Groce’s team came into the matchup on a three-game winning streak, during which no opponent broke 0.9 points per trip. This was a hot team whose defense was absolutely stifling conference opponents. Talk had even begun of this Illinois team somehow sneaking back onto the bubble in the season’s final week. The Wolverines obviously didn’t get the memo. Michigan had an historic night from three, knocking down 16 of 23 from

Player of the Year Tracker: It's Stauskas on top

There’s a different name atop my Big Ten Player of the Year Tracker for the third time in as many weeks. Entering the final week of the regular season, it’s Michigan’s Nik Stauskas coming in at No. 1, a spot held by Nebraska’s Terran Petteway and Iowa’s Devyn Marble the previous two weeks. Agree?
