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.

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

Dienhart: Is 2012-13 season best in Big Ten history?

Dan Dakich has heard the drumbeat all season: The Big Ten is the nation’s best conference. And, he’s not going to argue that notion. “It has been great,” said the former Indiana Hoosier (1981-85) and current Big Ten analyst for ESPN. “So many good players, teams and coaches. And most of the games I have done have been spectacular.” No doubt, it has been a spectacular regular season for the conference. Indiana opened as the No. 1 team in the nation. It slipped along the way but is poised for a No. 1 seed in the Midwest region in the

Big Ten Geeks: Recapping the season, part one

As we do every March, Josh and I take to a back-and-forth format to recap everything we saw in the regular season. Here’s part one, covering our all-conference team and other thoughts on half the conference members. Mike: It’s hard to believe we’re already done with the 2012-13 regular season, and what a season it was. There’s lots to discuss, but let’s start with a tradition unlike any other, the All-Geek team. Like everybody else, I’ve got the Obvious Four (Trey Burke, Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo, Deshaun Thomas), then I’m a bit undecided on the last spot. I feel Andre
