Big Ten Geeks: Before the madness, a look back

As we sit on the cusp of postseason play for nine Big Ten teams, it feels an appropriate time to revisit where we were just four short months ago, previewing a season that was about to unfold before us. Did we nail it, or do we need to turn in our Geek cards? Here’s our projected Big Ten records from November compared to the actual results: Team BTG Predicted W-L Actual W-L Deviation Indiana 14-4 14-4 0 Ohio State 13-5 13-5 0 Michigan State 12-6 13-5 +1 Michigan 12-6 12-6 0 Wisconsin 11-7 12-6 +1 Minnesota 11-7 8-10 -3 Illinois 9-9

Photo: Victor Oladipo on SI regional cover

For this year’s NCAA tourney preview edition, Sports Illustrated is producing four regional covers. One of the covers features a Big Ten star. It’s Indiana junior Victor Oladipo. See the cover in this post. SI is doing something pretty cool with this year’s regional covers, too, in that it’s allowing every student featured on the covers to tag themselves in it. Yes, Oladipo’s already done it. The three other covers feature Gonzaga (Kelly Olynyk), Kansas (Ben McLemore) and Syracuse (Michael Carter-Williams). Oladipo and Indiana open up NCAA action at 4:10 p.m. ET Friday. There was also this from SI today:

Seven important players to Big Ten's NCAA fate

Seven Big Ten teams made the NCAA tournament, and now it’s time to look at one key player from each team who could help fuel a tourney run. I’m not talking about the obvious stars, such as Trey Burke, Deshaun Thomas or Cody Zeller, here. Instead, these are guys who either have struggled lately or have heated up down the stretch. D.J. Richardson, Illinois – The Illini shoot more than 3s than anyone, and Richardson averages seven attempts from distance per game. Problem is, in the last four games, he’s a 25 percent shooter from distance (7-of-28) – not to

Big Ten Geeks: On Buckeyes & NCAA Tourney

Ohio State won the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, the fourth time that Thad Matta’s team has taken home the crown. While the Buckeyes won largely on the strength of its defense—holding Wisconsin to under 0.8 points per possession—this Ohio State team has been offensively excellent over the back half of its Big Ten schedule: Offensive Efficiency 1st 9 Big Ten Games 1.01 2nd 9 Big Ten Games 1.07 We know the Buckeyes have a great defense, but the one-dimensional nature of this team limited its ceiling. But now that Ohio State is starting to score in bunches, it’s time

Let's go dancing: Big Ten teams head to tourney

The NCAA bracket features seven Big Ten teams and that’s no shock to anyone following the conference. And the Big Ten’s power was reflected in four teams being seeded No. 4 or higher—No. 1 Indiana; No. 2 Ohio State; No. 3 Michigan State; No. 4 Michigan. Wisconsin just missed as a No. 5 seed. Here’s a look at the Big Dance through a Big Ten lens, as the league looks for its first national championship since Michigan State cut down the nets after the 1999-2000 season. Toughest path: Michigan State. Bracket makers didn’t do the Spartans any favors, making them

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 3

Indiana and Wisconsin tipped things off on Saturday in a back-and-forth affair that did not go according to script. For one, Indiana was supposed to be the athletic offensive rebounding powerhouse, but it was Wisconsin that was crashing the offensive glass early, collecting  43 percent of its misses in the first half. Additionally, one would expect the Badgers and their miniscule turnover rate to be stingy with the giveaways, but turnovers plagued Bo Ryan’s team all game long. Wisconsin turned it over on 25 percent of its possessions, the second-highest mark for the season (MSU’s steamrolling of Wisconsin in East

Ryan, Badgers run winning streak to 12 vs. Hoosiers

The last time Indiana beat Bo Ryan and Wisconsin, the calendar had just flipped to 2007. The date, to be exact, was Jan. 31, 2007. Since then, the Badgers have won 12 consecutive over the Hoosiers, the latest coming in Saturday’s Big Ten tourney semifinals. For some perspective, here’s how Indiana has fared against the Big Ten’s perennial powers since this run of futility began: vs. Michigan State (6-8); vs. Ohio State (5-10). [ RELATED: BTN’s Jim Jackson, Traevon Jackson share special postgame moment ] All three teams, of course, had the advantage of beating up on the Hoosiers for

Quick hit: Badgers dictated game's pace

The Badgers slowed down the prolific Indiana attack, keeping the Hoosiers under 60 points. And this was an Indiana squad that came in averaging 80.8 points in all games. Wisconsin did a great job denying entry passes to the post and rarely offered open looks from 3-point range. Bottom line: It was a textbook Wisconsin victory. You see, this is why Bo Ryan was the Big Ten coach of the year. And, that’s 12 wins in a row for Wisconsin over Indiana.
