Crispin: Word association for departed Big Ten standouts

The Big Ten is losing some serious four-year talent. The list of names is nothing short of impressive, and it is, no doubt, headlined by Big Ten Player of the Year Denzel Valentine. Other top names who have exhausted their eligibility: Yogi Ferrell, A.J. Hammons, Caris LeVert and Jarrod Uthoff. Talk about a scary starting 5. You can create a strong bench, too, with the likes of Rapheal Davis, Jake Layman and Shavon Shields, among others. With all of the talent headed out the door, Lisa Byington asked me to play word association Tuesday night on “BTN Live.” Thing is,

Dienhart: Three biggest surprise teams of 2015-16 hoops season

Who doesn’t love a surprise? We all do. And the Big Ten basketball season was filled with some good ones. Here are my three most surprising teams of the 2015-16 season. INDIANA The Hoosiers figured to be good. But few envisioned an outright Big Ten title with a 15-3 record. But, that’s what Indiana accomplished behind the play of star senior point man Yogi Ferrell. This was the Big Ten’s top offensive squad—even with James Blackmon Jr. going down with a season-ending injury in December. But it was a selfless commitment to defense that helped propel Indiana to the unexpected

Upon further review: How did our Big Ten predictions shake out?

At the beginning of the basketball season, our panel of Big Ten men's basketball experts came together and made some predictions. Some were pretty good, others not so much. See what they predicted and how it compares to the end results.

Dienhart: Iowa advances with thrilling OT win

No one said it was going to be easy for Iowa – and it wasn’t. But it sure has to feel good for a program to win an opening NCAA game after the Hawkeyes wheezed across the finish line, going 2-6 in their last eight games and getting dumped by Illinois in the Big Ten tourney game. In short, the Hawkeyes fought through it. No. 7 Iowa can thank big Adam Woodbury, who caught an air ball by Mike Gesell and put the errant shot off the glass and into the hoop as time expired for a 72-70 win in

Dienhart: Where will the NCAA road end for each Big Ten team?

There are seven Big Ten teams in the NCAA tourney. Michigan is the first to take the plunge, tipping off tonight in a First Four in clash with fellow No. 11 seed Tulsa. What is the best-case scenario in the Big Dance for the Wolverines? I tell you that, as well as my best-case scenario for each Big Ten squad in the NCAA tourney.

NCAA men's tourney at a glance: No. 7 seed Iowa

Iowa is back in the NCAA tourney as a No. 7 seed for the second year in a row. This is the Hawkeyes third appearance in a row, the first time the program has pulled off that trifecta since 1991-93. But Iowa hasn’t reached the Sweet 16 since 1999. This year the Hawkeyes wheezed across the finish line, going 2-6 in their last eight games and getting dumped by Illinois in the Big Ten tourney game. Will the veteran Hawkeyes who start four seniors and a junior snap out of it and regain their midseason form that saw them sweep
