Today's links: Experts abuzz over big game

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a big game tonight in East Lansing, as No. 1 Indiana visits No. 5 Michigan State. So, let’s start our daily links right there. The good news for the Hoosiers is that play star guard Victor Oladipo will play after hurting an ankle in the last game. Good thing, because IU will need him. Some bad news: History is against Indiana, which has lost 17 in a row at the Breslin Center dating to Feb. 28, 1991. Where were you? In that win, the Hoosiers were led by Calbert Cheaney and Damon Bailey. Remember

Crean curious about Big Ten Player of the Week process

Indiana sits atop the national polls and the Big Ten standings – it’s currently tied with No. 4/5 Michigan State – and yet the Hoosiers have picked up just three Big Ten Player of the Week honors and one Big Ten Freshman of the Week laurel all season. That doesn’t seem to sit right with the head Hoosier, Tom Crean. And the coach vented his frustration during Monday’s weekly teleconference. [ View the full list of 2012-13 Big Ten weekly honors ] On the call, before Crean addressed questions from the media, he shared a testy exchange with call moderator and

Power Rankings: Surging Illini continue ascent

John Groce’s Illini continued their torrid play this week, dispatching Purdue and Northwestern, teams they lost to earlier this season. Winners of four straight, Illinois has moved to No. 5 in my latest Power Rankings. Where does your team land? Find out in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Getting ready for the Dance

We’re only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday, and there’s only a handful of games left for teams to pick up signature wins. This weekend, some did, and some didn’t. Iowa picked up an important win over Minnesota on Saturday, rallying from an early 16-point deficit to an impressive 21-point win. And frankly, this game was over about midway through the second half. The turning point came when Fran McCaffrey deployed a zone defense, which flummoxed the Gopher attack. This isn’t the first time that Minnesota has looked confused against a zone—Northwestern sprung the upset against the Gophers by

Will Sheehey

No. 1 Indiana flattens Purdue for season sweep

Will Sheehey scored a career-high 22 points, on a perfect 9-of-9 effort from the field, and Cody Zeller had 19 as No. 1 Indiana rolled over Purdue 83-55 on Saturday, routing the Boilermakers for the second time in 2 1/2 weeks. Indiana (23-3, 11-2 Big Ten) bucked the recent trend of No. 1 teams losing and will likely keep the top spot for a third straight week. It also will retain at least a share of the league lead. The Hoosiers have won eight of their last nine games. [ BOX | AP RECAP | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS |

All signs point to No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 8 Michigan State

There were many winners this week in the Big Ten. But none were bigger than Indiana and Michigan State, which notched impressive victories that solidified their place atop the standings. And, it sets up what should be a huge game on Tuesday, when the Hoosiers visit the Spartans in this week’s version of the “Game of the Year.” Let’s take a look back and forward in the Big Ten. Indiana’s Leaders Points: C. Zeller 16.5 Rebounds: C. Zeller 8.2 Assists: K. Ferrell 4.3 FG%: V. Oladipo 64.4% FT%: C. Watford 83.6% 3P%: C. Watford 48.8% Steals: V. Oladipo 2.4 Blocks:

Big Ten Geeks: Boiling Over

Illinois exorcised some demons in a 20 point blowout of Purdue. The Fighting Illini seniors had never beaten the Boilermakers, but they changed that in emphatic fashion by attacking the offensive glass and limiting turnovers. In all, Illinois attempted 13 more field goals than Purdue, and those extra looks enabled John Groce’s team to score 1.20 points per trip despite 29 percent shooting on jumpers. It was Illinois’ best output since the win at Gonzaga, and it appears that the Illini of the season’s first month have returned. Illinois also did a good job defensively, especially when it came to

No. 1 Indiana starts slow, blows away Nebraska

Cody Zeller scored 16 points and Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 1 Indiana pull away from Nebraska 76-47 on Wednesday night. The Hoosiers (22-3, 10-2 Big Ten) have won seven of eight and regained a share of the league lead. They are tied with Michigan State. [ RELATED: Indiana “very unlikely” to ever wear adidas alternates ] But it sure wasn’t easy against Nebraska (12-13, 3-9), which frustrated Indiana by limiting possessions and repeatedly taking the shot clock inside of 10 seconds in the first half.

Video: Watch our Victor Oladipo dunk montage

On our “Tip-Off Show” leading up to No. 1 Indiana’s victory over Nebraska on Wednesday, we aired a Victor Oladipo dunk montage. We’ve done this a couple times this season, already featuring Sam Thompson and Rodney Williams. Like those two highlight packages, this one doesn’t disappoint. Watch the Oladipo dunk reel right here.
