Was Roy Marble impressed? Check out the slow clap

Sometimes, you’re so impressed by what you’ve seen that a slow clap is required. That was the case for Iowa legend Roy Marble after watching his son, Devyn Marble, start the second half on fire Sunday afternoon. Devyn, who was held to one point in the first half, erupted for nine points in the first 2:09 (And-1 & back-to-back treys), an effort that brought Roy to his feet and had him slow clapping. Watch the moment in this post. INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: How good was @IowaHoops Devyn Marble out of the half? So good, his dad slow clapped. WATCH –


Early look at NCAA Tournament mock brackets

It’s mid-January. Seems like a good time to start taking a look at some mock NCAA brackets. Things are looking good for Wisconsin and Michigan State, which are primed to be No. 1 seeds. Michigan, Iowa and Ohio State also are solid tourney teams for now. But teams like Minnesota and Indiana may bob in and out of these mock brackets all winter. First, there’s Jerry Palm of, my personal favorite because he’s a Purdue grad who studied computers and played in the All-American Marching Band. And, I know how smart those guys are, having gone to Purdue myself.

Ups & downs: Reviewing & previewing hoops

It’s time for my Big Ten basketball 3-Pointers, my look back at the week that was in the Big Ten—with a sneak peek at what’s to come. It has been a good week to be Minnesota and Indiana. It hasn’t been such a good week to be Ohio State and Illinois. And if you’re Richard Pitno’s jacket from Thursday night, you had a little bit of good and bad this week. Read on, Big Ten fans! Three Stocks to Buy: 1. Minnesota. Dinkytown residents probably woke up this morning to hear chants of “Ski-U-Mah!” Why not? Minnesota looks legit after

Big Ten Geeks: The Gophers arrive

Minnesota picked up a huge resume win over Ohio State, 63-53 in 63 possessions. The story of this game was on the interior, where Elliott Eliason made his presence felt on both ends. The bearded big man went 6-for-8 on twos, leading a Gopher attack that scored a point per trip despite a bad night from the perimeter. Minnesota’s poor three-point shooting and bad turnover rate weren’t a huge surprise, given the defensive strength of the Buckeye backcourt, but the Gophers’ ability to score inside was unexpected. %Shots at rim %Shots 2pt J %Shots 3pt Ohio State 18% 51% 31%

Big Ten Geeks: Iowa crashes the party

In case any doubters remained—Iowa is for real, as proven by its 10-point win in Columbus. Granted, this was probably more like a six- or eight-point win if Ohio State isn’t fouling desperately at the end. But that’s splitting hairs, especially because most teams in that position do the same thing. Frankly, if you’re looking for reasons to call this result a fluke, you might be looking for a while. Iowa wasn’t red-hot from the outside (29 percent on 3s), Ohio State wasn’t atrocious at the free-throw line (71 percent), and both teams shot roughly the same number of free

Video: McCaffery chest-bumps players after win

Let’s just say Fran McCaffery was really excited about Sunday’s upset at No. 3 Ohio State. And who can blame him? This was McCaffery’s first game back from the one-game suspension he received for his actions in last week’s loss at Wisconsin. It also marked Iowa’s first win over a top 5 team since 2001. So, how excited was he? Well, the Iowa coach had chest-bumps for his players after the final buzzer. Watch it in this post.
