Five Big Ten teams remain alive in the postseason. There’s Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney, and there’s Iowa in the NIT quarterfinals. All five teams – like most teams in action this time of year – boast terrific 1-2 punches. See how I rank the Big Ten’s remaining duos in this post.

Big Ten stars in action-packed tourney games

There were big shots (Aaron Craft), heartache (Illinois), disappointment (Wisconsin) and jubilation (Indiana) all wrapped into one massive second- and third-round of the NCAA tourney. The Big Ten landed seven teams in the Big Dance—and four survived to play in the Sweet 16—No. 1 Indiana, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan State, No. 4 Michigan. No other league has as many teams, further validation of the Big Ten’s prowess as the conference pursues its first national crown since 1999-2000 when Michigan State cut down the nets. But before we jump ahead to a Sweet 16, let’s look back at what

Big Ten Geeks: Weekend at Tourney's

When the dust settled on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the Big Ten had four teams standing in the Sweet Sixteen. Here are some scattered thoughts on the action, bullet-point style: Wisconsin lost exactly the way I said it would—by going cold from long range. This is a perimeter-oriented team that does not shoot all that well from the perimeter, and that means that it’s bound to go ice cold at least once every few games. Unfortunately, that came in the very first round of the Tournament. I know Marshall Henderson is outspoken and scored a lot of

Where does Big Ten start rank in NCAA history?

With a 10-3 record and four teams advancing to the Sweet 16, how did the Big Ten’s start to the NCAA tourney compare to the best in NCAA history? That’s a great question, and BTN.com turned to its resident statistician, Chris Antonacci, for the answer. See the numbers in this post. Before we get to the numbers, consider this: The Big Ten was one win away from tying the NCAA records – both held by the Big East in 2009 – for most wins in the Rounds of 64 and 32 (11) and most Sweet 16 teams (5). Big Ten,

Quick Hit: It wasn't pretty, but Indiana got it done

Sometimes a team just has to survive and advance. That was the case Sunday for East Region No. 1 seed Indiana, which trailed almost the entire second half before rallying in the final minutes to dispatch No. 9 seed Temple and advance to its second consecutive Sweet 16.

Often times, the Hoosier offense was discombobulated and

IU rallies to top Temple, advance to Sweet 16

Victor Oladipo hit a key 3-pointer with 13 seconds remaining and Indiana, minutes away from being the second No. 1 seed to be swept from the NCAA tournament, held off Temple 58-52 on Sunday in the East Regional. The Hoosiers (29-6) trailed by four with 2:56 left, but closed with a big run to advance to the round of 16 for the second straight year. Indiana will play No. 4 seed Syracuse in the regional semifinals on Thursday in Washington. [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] [ RELATED: Quick

Burke, Oladipo finalists for 2013 Naismith Trophy

The four finalists for the 2013 Naismith Men’s College Player of the Year were announced Sunday afternoon, and the Big Ten comprises half the field. Indiana’s Victor Oladipo and Michigan’s Trey Burke are finalists, along with Creighton’s Doug McDermott and Georgetown’s Otto Porter Jr. The finalists were chosen by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based selections on individual performances throughout the regular season. The winner will be revealed April 7 in Atlanta, the home of this year’s Final Four. “These four players have performed at the highest level and have separated themselves appropriately from the other contenders,”

Tough to top Big Ten's start to NCAA tourney

Yes, I realize Sunday features four games involving Big Ten teams. And yes, I realize the Big Ten could go 0-4. It isn’t likely, but it could happen. Regardless, it’s impossible to ignore what the Big Ten has done through the first three days of the Big Dance. In a tournament loaded with upsets (No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast over No. 2 Georgetown & No. 14 Harvard over No. 3 New Mexico, among others) and near-historical close calls (No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 16 Western Kentucky & No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 16 Southern), the Big Ten’s 8-1 start is
