No. 8 Michigan State drops Purdue, moves into first place

Branden Dawson scored 20 points and Keith Appling added 17, leading No. 12 Michigan State past Purdue 78-65 on Saturday night. The Spartans (20-4, 9-2 Big Ten) have won three straight, nine of their last 10, four of their last five on the road in conference play and will retain at least a share of the league lead – regardless of what happens Sunday when No. 1 Indiana visits No. 10 Ohio State.

Photo: Check out Dwayne Stephens' electric blue suit

Michigan State associate head coach Dwayne Stephens is turning a bunch of heads with his suit of choice for tonight’s game at Purdue. It’s hard not to notice the, let’s just call it, electric blue suit any time the camera follows the action going toward the basket on Michigan State’s end of the floor. See a photo of the suit in this post, plus check out what people are saying about it on Twitter. Here are some of the tweets about Stephens’ suit: Dwayne Stephens’ suit. Two thumbs up. — KJ (@KJatTOC) February 10, 2013 Looks like Clarence Clemons from

Weekend hoops: Spartans battling in tight race

BTN/BTN2Go has two Big Ten men’s basketball games this Saturday as Northwestern plays at Iowa at 4:30 p.m. before No. 12 Michigan State plays at Purdue at 7 p.m. We spoke with Michigan State freshman Gary Harris about Saturday’s big game. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo isn’t sure where his team would be if not for the efforts of Harris, though the freshman hasn’t been the only one playing through pain as the Spartans are tied for first place in the Big Ten. The banged-up Spartans look to earn a fifth straight victory over host Purdue. “I knew it was going to be


Next 'Journey:' Payne, Swopshire, & Richardson

On Saturday night after the men’s basketball game between Michigan State and Purdue, BTN airs the next episode of “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013” around 9:30 p.m. ET. The episode looks at Michigan State forward Adreian Payne, both in the classroom and on the court. Also, get to know Northwestern forward Jared Swopshire who is in his final year of eligibility after already graduating from Louisville. We also visit with Illinois’ D.J. Richardson, the latest piece of Champaign’s “Peoria Pipeline.” Viewers can also watch our usual behind-the-scenes footage, and this weekit’s from the Michigan-Indiana game. This week’s show will also air in its regularly scheduled time slot on

Derrick Nix

No. 8 Michigan State puts away No. 18 Minnesota

Gary Harris scored 15 points and Keith Appling added 14 points before leaving the game with an injury to help No. 12 Michigan State bounce back from a poor first half to beat No. 18 Minnesota 61-50 Wednesday night. [ VIDEO: Derrick Nix flattens Michigan State cheerleaders ] Appling left the court with 1:17 left, holding his right shoulder after getting tied up with Joe Coleman. He returned to the bench in the final minute. The Spartans (19-4 8-2 Big Ten) moved into a second-place tie with No. 3 Michigan, whom they host Tuesday night. They picked up their eighth

Did You See This? Derrick Nix drops cheerleaders

Derrick Nix is 6-foot-9 and 270 pounds. Save for Nebraska’s Andre Almeida, Nix is the last guy in the Big Ten that anyone would want falling on him or her. That’s especially true when the “her” is a couple of cheerleaders. Yep, Nix accidentally took out a pair of cheerleaders on the baseline in the first half of Wednesday’s win over Minnesota. Watch Nix’s momentum take him out of bounds and the end result now. All I can say is it’s a good think this was the 270-pound Nix and not the 300-plus pound version from the past. Here are

Take charge: A look at "Big 4's" remaining slates

There are four schools that I think have legit shots to win the Big Ten as we enter the final five weeks of the season: Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State. (Yes, Wisconsin still has a shot, but I don’t think it can match the other four.) Here’s a look at the remaining schedules for Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State with projected wins and losses, second-half record and how they will finish.

Dienhart: Time for midseason Big Ten honors

We are halfway through the Big Ten season, and the conference hasn’t disappointed. All of that preseason hype about being the top conference has proven to be true, with Indiana and Michigan already haven taken turns sitting atop the national polls. And Michigan State, Minnesota and Wisconsin all have impressed to varying degrees. Here’s how I size up the conference at midseason.
