Big Ten Geeks: A look at Tuesday's Challenge games

It’s that time of year again, when the powers of the Midwest exert their basketball dominance over the Atlantic Coasters. Or at least that’s been the story in recent years, with the Big Ten taking three of the last four Challenges (last season was an unsatisfying tie). We won’t talk about what happened in the 10 prior Challenges. We’re going to give a quick rundown on each of the 12 games, complete with our picks. First, here’s our look at Tuesday’s games. ** Notre Dame at Iowa Pomeroy says: Iowa by 12 The teams: Notre Dame has played the third-weakest schedule

Big Ten Geeks: Purdue Problems

It was while watching a Purdue team fall to Nebraska in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament last year that I assured my colleague, Tom Dienhart, that the Boilermakers were simply in a rebounding season. They would be back next year, I told him, and I had no reservations about that. And why wouldn’t they be? The team returned a little over two-thirds of last year’s minutes, and last year wasn’t all that bad. Sure, it wasn’t up to Matt Painter’s usual standards, but the team was a significant upgrade over the likes of Northwestern, Penn State, and,

Saturday B1G hoops roundup: Iowa, PSU fall in title games

Iowa and Penn State both lost heartbreakers in their respective tournament title games Saturday. Villanova topped the Hawkeyes in overtime in the Battle 4 Atlantis championship, while Ole Miss nipped the Nittany Lions in the Barclays Center Classic final. Nebraska, however, topped NIU. Catch up on all the day’s action in this post. VILLANOVA 88, IOWA 83 (OT) | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY Tournament MVP James Bell scored 20 points and sparked a huge Villanova rally, Josh Hart added 16 off the bench and the Wildcats beat No. 23 Iowa 88-83 in overtime to claim the Battle 4 Atlantis

Big Ten Geeks: Turkeys and Trophies

While most of the nation feasted, several Big Ten teams were playing for tournament hardware. Let’s get right into the meat and potatoes of what’s worth knowing. ** Wisconsin rolled to the Cancun Challenge title with a workmanlike victory over West Virginia. The Badgers jumped out to a 17-point lead late in the first half, and the Mountaineers were never able to get within a possession the rest of the way. After settling for a complementary role the past couple games, Sam Dekker resumed his rightful place as Wisconsin’s offensive centerpiece, scoring 21 points on 14 shots. It’s early, but

Big Ten Geeks: Dramatic Gophers

Tuesday and Wednesday brought a flurry of interesting results for Big Ten teams. Let’s dive in to what it all means. ** Minnesota had a rough couple days in Maui, losing to Syracuse and Arkansas by a combined 22 points. The problem in both games was defense, as the Gophers’ zone was often porous and ineffective. Cue Dramatic Gopher! Coming into the season, the big question with Minnesota was how much it would get out of its frontcourt. Thus far, the results are decidedly mixed. Elliott Eliason is off to a good start with his rebounding and shotblocking, but Oto

A look at early basketball signing classes

The early basketball signing period started last Wednesday, Nov. 13, and ends today. The Big Ten had a decent haul. According to, Ohio State (No. 6) and Indiana (No. 21) are the lone league schools to rank among the Top 25 classes in the nation. But there still will be a spring signing period, so these classes can change. There were just two five-star signees, and both inked with Ohio State: 6-4 off-guard D’Angelo Russell and 6-7 small forward Keita Bates-Diop. There were seven four-star signees. Russell is the highest-rated Big Ten prospect, coming in at No. 16 in
