Big Ten Geeks: Standing Tall

The Big Ten suffered its first losses over the past couple nights, and we learned just a little bit more about the shape of this conference. Let’s dive in. In a formula that might become common this season, Illinois struggled to score over Valparaiso’s length but did enough on defense to secure the victory. After facing two decidedly smaller teams to open the season, Illinois had trouble converting over Valpo’s big and experienced frontline. In fact, the Illini’s 35.6 effective field goal percentage is the lowest mark of the John Groce era, and last season’s team wasn’t exactly a collection

Big Ten Geeks: Season Preview Back & Forth, Part II

We resume our season preview back-and-forth, with Mike answering Josh’s question about Wisconsin–is this team becoming the Atlanta Braves of college basketball? Always a good team, always in the postseason, but never a real threat to win it all? (Part one can be found here.) Mike: It feels that way, doesn’t it? Most programs would kill to have the kind of consistent success enjoyed in Madison, but style-of-play complaints end up putting the Badgers under the microscope. Therefore, any time Wisconsin doesn’t get as far in the NCAA tournament as it should, the result is used as validation of the

Toughest venue? Best uniform? See what B1G stars say

The city of Chicago was filled with college basketball’s best on Thursday as the top players and coaches from around the Big Ten gathered at the annual Big Ten Media Day. It was a chance to ask some out-of-the-norm questions and find out who really are the best personalities around the Big Ten. I conducted a Big Ten poll, asking one player from every team a series of five questions. See what they had to say here in this post. Editors note: Player responses are anonymous.

I think the biggest thing we’re trying to get accomplished right now is to get our team to understand — this team to understand what it takes to practice at a championship level and showing the standards of last year, not necessarily who it was, but how it was done, I think is the most important thing.” Illinois’ John Groce: “We want to play faster this year.
