B1G Recap: Michigan takes over first, Huskers stay hot

That was a fun day of Big Ten hoops, wasn’t it? No. 20 Michigan dropped No. 13 Michigan State to move into sole possession of first place and Nebraska stayed hot by dropping Purdue.

Video: Lights go out during Tom Izzo's postgame presser

No. 20 Michigan and No. 13 Michigan State both shot lights out in the Wolverines’ big rivalry win Sunday afternoon, so it was kind of fitting that the lights went out on Tom Izzo during his postgame press conference. Izzo was wrapping up his media session and talking about Michigan State’s injuries when the lights suddenly went off. Watch it in this post.

Decade-by-decade Mount Rushmore of B1G Hoops

It was just last week when I released my team-by-team breakdown of who would make the Mount Rushmore of Big Ten basketball players. This week, let’s go ahead and take it one step further. Here is a decade-by-decade look at which Big Ten stars would land on my Mount Rushmore, starting with the 1960’s and counting up to current day. Did I miss someone?

Survey Says: Who is the Big Ten's best dunker?

If it’s Friday, it’s time for my survey. This week, I asked Big Ten media members who is the best dunker in the conference. A guy from Ohio State was a popular choice. [ MORE: Review and Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks ] Ben Jones, Branden Dawson had some pretty impressive dunks prior to injury. With that in mind, I’ll go with D.J. Newbill who doesn’t have many but all of them have been impressive. His two dunks against Wisconsin on the road last year (here & here) are as good as you’ll see not in transition. Brian Neubert,

Review & Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks

If you haven’t already made an appointment for the psychiatrist’s couch, do so. The craziness that is 2014 Big Ten basketball continues with plenty more to come. Keep that straightjacket handy. Here’s my weekly look back at what we just witnessed—with a peek ahead. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Wisconsin. The Badgers started 16-0, then lost five of six games. To say that self-doubt crept into the mind of Bucky is an understatement. But since that funk, Wisconsin has won four in a row, including triumphs over the likes of Michigan State (home) and Michigan (away). Welcome back, Bucky! 2.

Big Ten Geeks: Surprises and Disappointments

Before a very important weekend of games, let’s take a quick look at where Big Ten teams currently rank in KenPom relative to where they were ranked in the preseason. For those unfamiliar, Ken Pomeroy uses an objective system to come up with preseason rankings for every DI team. I’ll let Ken explain it: The system is largely the same as in recent seasons. It independently predicts a team’s adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency. As a reminder, it uses information split into two categories: – Base level of the program. This takes into account the last five seasons of data for the

Big Ten Geeks: Damaging Loss in the Barn

Illinois shocked Minnesota in the Barn on Wednesday, dealing a serious blow to the Gophers’ NCAA tournament hopes. Minnesota actually got off to a great start in this game, leading 14-3 after eight minutes, but it was all Illinois after that. The Gophers had a terrible night from the outside (4-for-25, 16 percent), and the turnovers mounted as they tried to make plays going to the basket. All told, the Illini held Minnesota to its lowest output of the season, and a big night from freshman Kendrick Nunn (19 points, 5-for-7 from three) was enough to carry the offense. Nnanna
