Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Nebraska are the top four seeds in the 2014 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, the conference office announced on Sunday night. The 17th annual event will be played March 13-16 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Penn State won its fourth straight Big Ten Wrestling Championships title on Sunday. The Nittany Lions (140.5) become just the fifth school to win four consecutive conference titles and the first since Iowa won 25 in a row from 1974-1998. Penn State took home two individual titles, as Ed Ruth and David Taylor closed their careers as just the 12th and 13th wrestlers to be four-time champs.
Three-time reigning Big Ten Wrestling Championships winner, Penn State takes a narrow lead into Sunday’s Big Ten Wrestling Championships title bouts. The Nittany Lions, with 128.5 points, lead Iowa by one-half point. The rest of the top 5: Minnesota (110.5); Ohio State (73.5); Illinois and Michigan (69.5).
Every now and then, Troy Williams offers a glimpse into why some basketball minds think he boasts Victor Oladipo-like athleticism. The Indiana freshman had one of those moments early in the first half Saturday at No. 12 Michigan. Let’s just say, Williams didn’t care that it was Jordan Morgan’s senior night. Check out his And-1 dunk in this post.
The final weekend of the Big Ten regular season got off to an exciting start Saturday. No. 12 Michigan completed an impressive 15-3 Big Ten championship season with a victory over Indiana, and Illinois upset No. 24 Iowa on Jon Ekey’s last-second triple.
