Burke, Michigan highlight NCAA second weekend

A weekend that began with promise for the Big Ten ended amid more disappointment than joy. Many felt the nation’s best league had a chance for multiple teams in the Final Four—maybe even four. But in the end, Michigan was the lone survivor. In fact, the Wolverines and Ohio State were the only Big Ten team to make it to the Elite Eight. No. 1 Indiana and No. 3 Michigan State fell in the Sweet 16 to Syracuse and Duke, respectively. The Orange, for what it’s worth, advanced to the Final Four. Michigan is in the Final Four for the

Big Ten Geeks: Danger zone

Thursday was a mixed bag for the Big Ten, with just one team advancing to the Elite Eight in unconvincing fashion. Before Friday’s action tips off, let’s have a look at last night’s results. Ohio State put on a repeat performance of the Iowa State win, pairing an excellent offensive attack with a strangely permissive defense. The result against Arizona was much the same as it had been a round earlier, with the Buckeyes stumbling late and giving up a late lead, only to hit a shot in the waning moments to win it. The only difference was that this

Syracuse zone frustrates, eliminates Indiana

With its 2-3 zone defense disruptive from start to finish, and Michael Carter-Williams pouring in 24 points, fourth-seeded Syracuse upset No. 1 seed Indiana 61-50 Thursday night to reach the NCAA tournament’s East Regional final. Syracuse limited Indiana to its lowest point total of the season, forced 19 turnovers, compiled 10 blocks and held the normally efficient Hoosiers to 33 percent shooting. After getting past preseason No. 1 Indiana, Syracuse (29-9) will face No. 3 seed Marquette on Saturday night in an all-Big East matchup for a berth in the Final Four.

IU must make Final Four or season falls short

How much more does Indiana have to achieve this season for it to be deemed a success? Or, have the Hoosiers already done enough? Terry Hutchens of the Indianapolis Star recently wrestled with the conundrum. Hutchens, who has covered Hoosiers hoops for 15 years, thinks Indiana already has had a successful season based on what it has achieved: The program’s first outright Big Ten title since 1992-93 and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tourney, among other things, are proof of a job already well done this season. That, of course, is preposterous. This team must reach the Final Four—it

Big Ten Geeks: Inside Thursday's Sweet 16 battles

As expected, four Big Ten teams have advanced to the Sweet 16, with play resuming Thursday night. Let’s take a close look at tomorrow’s matchups (Ohio State vs. Arizona; Indiana vs. Syracuse). On Thursday, we’ll preview Friday’s regional semifinals (Michigan State vs. Michigan vs. Kansas). Ohio State vs. Arizona, 7:47 pm ET, Los Angeles, CA The Buckeyes reside in the wild West, where the 3, 4, and 5 seeds all went down in the second round, and the 1 seed bowed out in the third round. That leaves the winner of this crucial game as the favorite to reach the

Dienhart: Big Ten Sweet 16 previews

The dust has cleared and only 16 teams are standing in the NCAA tourney—four of them are Big Ten schools. The league more than acquitted itself in the opening three rounds of the Big Dance, forging a 10-3 mark from the seven teams that competed. No. 5 Wisconsin was the only Big Ten team that failed to win a game, falling to Ole Miss. No. 11 Minnesota (UCLA) and No. 7 Illinois (Colorado) each won a game before falling to Florida and Miami (Fla.), respectively, in the third round. No. 1 Indiana, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan State
