It’s a big weekend of Big Ten basketball on BTN/BTN2Go, including No. 10 Minnesota visiting No. 5 Indiana on Saturday. Throughout all the action, we’ll provide our usual in-game online coverage with quick video highlights where BTN.com is spotting great plays during BTN games, then posting them as fast as possible right here on BTN.com, Facebook and Twitter.
BTN will be live from Bloomington this Saturday for a one-hour pregame show at 11 a.m. ET leading up to a Big Ten battle between No. 10 Minnesota and No. 5 Indiana at noon. BTN’s Dave Revsine and analyst Shon Morris will lead the show from courtside at Indiana’s Assembly Hall, then Gus Johnson and analyst Jim Jackson will call the game.

This LostLettermen.com post got me thinking about the Big Ten’s top dunkers. There’s a bunch of them, and they’ve kept me busy this season on our Big Ten Dunk Archive. But who are the best of the best? I’ve come up with my top 5, plus honorable mention list, in this post. Let’s hear from you, too, though. There’s a poll included inside and feel free to send your nomination in the comment box.
The Hoosier Hoops Experience is part of an ongoing series of BTN sweepstakes. What exactly is the “experience” for one lucky winner? The winner will race across the court during the “William Tell Overture” timeout during the Feb. 13 game against Nebraska. There’s also pregame food and drink at the “I” Lounge, pregame tours of Cook Hall and Assembly Hall, a seat next to the Indiana radio crew during the first half of the game, two game tickets and a parking pass, and Hoosier basketball gear. Enter the sweepstakes here.

Christian Watford scored 16 points, Jordan Hulls added 14 and No. 5 Indiana used a big first-half run to race past Penn State 74-51 on Monday night. The Hoosiers’ breakneck offense could rarely be stopped in the first half before the pace slowed down in a sloppy second half.
