If the Big Ten had an All-Star Weekend...

NBA All-Star Weekend is upon us, and the team thought it would be fun to choose Big Ten participants for the annual Saturday night events and the All-Star Game. See our picks for who would compete in a mythical Big Ten Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, Slam Dunk Contest and the All-Star Game in this post. Here’s how this worked: We split the league into East (Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Ohio State) and West (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin), using the Big Ten’s new football divisional setup, with web editor Sean Merriman taking the East

Who has Big Ten's best homecourt advantage?

There is no greater asset to a team than a good homecourt advantage. And, there are several intimidating venues in the Big Ten. I polled seven writers who cover the league and asked them what they thought was the most intimidating Big Ten arena.

Review & preview: Big Ten stocks rise & fall

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for Three-Pointers, a chance to take the temperature of the Big Ten in several different areas. It’s a good time to be John Beilein and Michigan. Conversely, it’s not such a good time to be Tom Crean and Indiana. Weekend schedules are here with TV info, latest men’s basketball standings are over here and the season’s top plays can be seen right here. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Michigan.

Big Ten Geeks: Hoosier collapse

On Wednesday night, Penn State stamped out any remaining Indiana tournament hopes with a shocking road upset. The Hoosiers seemingly had this game in hand the entire way, and it felt all but over when Indiana held an 11-point lead with three minutes remaining. Somehow, the Nittany Lions roared back, and they took their first lead of the entire game on a Tim Frazier layup with six seconds remaining. Yogi Ferrell missed a tough jumper at the horn, and the upset was complete. Just how crazy was that finish? Using KenPom’s win probabilities, Penn State had just a 0.2 percent chance

Throwback Thursday Q&A: Spartans' Morris Peterson

When it comes to college and pro success among recent Big Ten basketball players, it doesn’t get much better than Morris Peterson. Not only did the ex-Michigan State star claim Big Ten Player of the Year and All-America honors en route to the Spartans’ 2000 NCAA title, the Big Ten’s last crown, he enjoyed a successful 11-year NBA career. His playing day behind him, Peterson runs his own clothing company, World Artist Refuge, and manages an entertainment artist touring company, World Artist Transport.

Read Thursday's Big Ten headlines roundup

Indiana’s strange and bizarre season took another unexpected and maddening turn last night with a home loss to last-place Penn State. How can this IU team beat top-10 squads like Wisconsin and Michigan in Bloomington, and then lose to the likes of the Nittany Lions and Northwestern at home? It’s safe to say, panic has set in for Indiana. This team just can’t shoot. And the turnover issues persist. The Hoosiers led by seven with two minutes to play. And they failed to score a basket in the final 5:16. It didn’t help that IU turned the ball over three
