Best of Day 1 at Big Ten tourney: Paul shines brightest

Thursday’s opening day of the Big Ten tourney featured a game-winning buzzer-beater (Illinois over Minnesota) and an upset (No. 10 Nebraska over No. 7 Purdue). Catch up on the best performances, numbers and highlights from the opening day of action at the United Center in this post. DAY 1 STARS 1. Brandon Paul, Illinois – 10-16, 25 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 0 turnovers.

Iowa vs. Northwestern

Quick hit: Iowa playing with a mission

This was no shock, as Iowa was expected to take care of business vs. the Wildcats. And, it did with efficiency. The Hawkeyes overwhelmed an undermanned Northwestern team with a balanced attack. This is a team on a mission, as Iowa fights for its first NCAA bid since 2006.  The Hawkeyes have won three in a row and four of five. Key moment: The Hawkeyes raced out to an 11-0 start at the 13:05 mark to start the game. From there, it basically was over. Iowa came at Northwestern in waves, as three players finished in double-figures: Roy Devyn Marble

Did You See This? Eric May soars for highlight dunk

Eric May is no stranger to highlight-reel dunks. May has this dunk currently in our Big Ten Dunk of the Year tournament, plus several other impressive ones throughout his career. In Thursday’s Big Ten tourney game against Northwestern, May took flight again – for what was arguably his best dunk. This time, he went coast-to-coast and took off from the “B1G” logo in the key for a powerful one-hander. Watch the ridiculous slam here and see Twitter reaction in this post.

Recapping the Season, Part Two

See part one of our discussion here. Mike: Miles has done a great job in his first season. I had expected something akin to 2008-09 Indiana—a sub-200 KenPom ranking, one or two conference wins, and general misery. Instead, his Huskers managed to beat a few solid teams and rarely got blown out. That’s a hugely successful season in my mind. Unfortunately, things are probably going to get worse before they get better. Three of Miles’ more productive players won’t return, and while his 2013 recruiting class looks solid, it is still composed of 3-star freshmen. Furthermore, there is basically no

Preview: No. 6 Iowa vs. No. 11 Northwestern

Iowa is the school seemingly with the most on the line in the Big Ten tourney, as it is the lone Big Ten team on the bubble. Many seem to think the Hawkeyes need to win just two games to get an at-large berth. Meanwhile for Northwestern, speculation swirls about the job status of Bill Carmody. Could this be the last game he coaches for the Wildcats? Watch the highlight from their last meeting in this post. Thursday’s game starts at approximately 9 p.m. ET The skinny on Iowa: The Hawkeyes figure to get a lift from the return of
