Big Ten Geeks: Back on the NCAA tourney bubble

Minnesota propelled itself back into the field of 68 with a decisive win over Iowa at home. The Gopher defense has been much-maligned this season (this is the second-worst defense in the Big Ten), but that doesn’t matter when you shoot 58 percent from 3 and 63 percent on 2s. As Uncle Drew would say, this game has always been about getting buckets, and when you shoot like this you don’t need to defend all that well to get a win. Austin Hollins led the way with 27 points on 10 shots, but I think the best indication of how

At first glance it’s not a great menu of games this week, but we all know anything can happen. As the Big Ten hits the homestretch of the season, Michigan has a one-game lead in the title chase and the Wolverines should cruise in its two games this week.

Merriman: Ranking Big Ten's top 10 freshmen

As the Big Ten hoops season comes down the final stretch, the play of several freshmen could make-or-break a team’s NCAA Tournament chances. Be it on the offensive or defensive end on the court, there are plenty of Big Ten freshmen who have made their presence felt. Here is my ranking of the top 10 freshman performers.

Big Ten Geeks: Full Stauskas & top defenders

First, a recap of the weekend’s games. But jump to the end for our take on the Big Ten’s best defensive players so far this season. Or as I’ve come to know it—Our Annual Solicitation of Hate Mail from Buckeye Fans. Let’s start things off with Michigan, shall we? The Wolverines took firm control of the conference race by completing their sweep of the in-state rival Spartans. The Wolverine offense—and Nik Stauskas in particular—could not be stopped in the second half. What has to make this loss burn even more is just how well Michigan State played at the other

Video: Troy Williams throws down three huge dunks

Is there a more exciting team to watch in the Big Ten than the Indiana Hoosiers? While inconsistent, they like to play above the rim and are no strangers to highlight plays. Fans were treated to a flurry of dunks in the first half Saturday night, three of which came from high-flying freshman forward Troy Williams.
