Big Ten Geeks: Back on the NCAA tourney bubble

Minnesota propelled itself back into the field of 68 with a decisive win over Iowa at home. The Gopher defense has been much-maligned this season (this is the second-worst defense in the Big Ten), but that doesn’t matter when you shoot 58 percent from 3 and 63 percent on 2s. As Uncle Drew would say, this game has always been about getting buckets, and when you shoot like this you don’t need to defend all that well to get a win. Austin Hollins led the way with 27 points on 10 shots, but I think the best indication of how

B1G week ahead: Iowa games top the list

At first glance it’s not a great menu of games this week, but we all know anything can happen. As the Big Ten hits the homestretch of the season, Michigan has a one-game lead in the title chase and the Wolverines should cruise in its two games this week. Michigan State sits one game out and Wisconsin trails by two. Can the Spartans and Badgers keep pace? Here’s a look at all the games this week. Don’t forget that our real-time scoreboards have times and TV info, too. 1. Iowa at Minnesota, Tues., Feb. 25: Two teams that have been

Big Ten Geeks: Full Stauskas & top defenders

First, a recap of the weekend’s games. But jump to the end for our take on the Big Ten’s best defensive players so far this season. Or as I’ve come to know it—Our Annual Solicitation of Hate Mail from Buckeye Fans. Let’s start things off with Michigan, shall we? The Wolverines took firm control of the conference race by completing their sweep of the in-state rival Spartans. The Wolverine offense—and Nik Stauskas in particular—could not be stopped in the second half. What has to make this loss burn even more is just how well Michigan State played at the other

Iowa Card Stunt

Video: Iowa hoops performs inaugural card stunt

During the National Anthem prior to No. 15 Iowa’s game vs. No. 16 Wisconsin on Saturday, the fans at Carver-Hawkeye Arena performed their inaugural card stunt. It all started with the fans forming an American flag and ended with them revealing “Hawks” on one side of the gym and “Rising” on the other. Hawks Rising is the team’s slogan this season. Watch the video in this post. VIDEO: Did you miss the @IowaHoops inaugural card stunt this morning? If so, it was good stuff.

Survey Says: Who is the Big Ten's best dunker?

If it’s Friday, it’s time for my survey. This week, I asked Big Ten media members who is the best dunker in the conference. A guy from Ohio State was a popular choice. [ MORE: Review and Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks ] Ben Jones, StateCollege.com: Branden Dawson had some pretty impressive dunks prior to injury. With that in mind, I’ll go with D.J. Newbill who doesn’t have many but all of them have been impressive. His two dunks against Wisconsin on the road last year (here & here) are as good as you’ll see not in transition. Brian Neubert,

Review & Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks

If you haven’t already made an appointment for the psychiatrist’s couch, do so. The craziness that is 2014 Big Ten basketball continues with plenty more to come. Keep that straightjacket handy. Here’s my weekly look back at what we just witnessed—with a peek ahead. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Wisconsin. The Badgers started 16-0, then lost five of six games. To say that self-doubt crept into the mind of Bucky is an understatement. But since that funk, Wisconsin has won four in a row, including triumphs over the likes of Michigan State (home) and Michigan (away). Welcome back, Bucky! 2.
