And just like that, it’s time for the Big Ten season to tip. It was a highly successful nonconference season, with the Big Ten owning the national polls. We have even more to look forward in the coming months, however, as many feel this could be one of the better conference races in recent history. Check out my All-Big Ten Nonconference Teams in this post.

Happy Holidays! I have a “present” for you. It’s my latest Big Ten Power Rankings. So, if you manage to get some free time from all the family and delicious eats, take a moment to see where your team ranks before the conference season tips off.
Injuries have kept Iowa senior Eric May from being the player many thought he’d become following an impressive freshman campaign. That doesn’t mean he isn’t capable of the occasional big game or highlight-reel play, though. May flashed his incredible athleticism – not to mention strength – on a silly And-1 flush during Saturday’s win vs. Coppin State. Watch the dunk now.
Aaron White scored 20 points as Iowa throttled Coppin State 80-50 on Saturday afternoon at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The Hawkeyes (11-2) have won six straight games for the first time in eight years.

It’s heat-check time, and Iowa junior Devyn Marble keeps hitting. The guard, fresh off a 30-point effort Saturday, hit 6-of-8 3-pointers on his way to scoring 27 points in Wednesday’s 90-46 victory over South Carolina State. If it weren’t for the lopsided score, Marble, who sat much of the second half, probably would have tallied his first back-to-back 30-point games. Either way, Marble’s night was remarkable. Watch all six of Marble’s treys now.
Devyn Marble continued his red-hot shooting with 27 points, leading Iowa to a 90-46 rout of South Carolina State on Wednesday night. The Hawkeyes (10-2) are off to their best start since 2004-05.
