Big Ten releases 2014 men's tournament bracket

Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Nebraska are the top four seeds in the 2014 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, the conference office announced on Sunday night. The 17th annual event will be played March 13-16 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. After winning the outright Big Ten crown for the first time since 1986 with a 15-3 conference record, Michigan is the tournament’s top seed and will open play at noon ET on Friday. Wisconsin and Michigan State finished the year with matching 12-6 marks, but the Badgers’ head-to-head win over the Spartans on Feb. 9 gave them the No.

B1G Recap: Huskers upset No. 9 Badgers

Why wouldn’t a season as wild as this one end with a crazy upset in the final game of the regular season? Nebraska upset No. 9 Wisconsin in the conference’s final game to highlight a busy day. In other action, Minnesota ran past Penn State, Ohio State nipped No. 22 Michigan State and Northwestern dropped Purdue. Catch up on all the action and video highlights in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Huskers Keep Hope Alive

Michigan State used a run out of intermission to create separation from Iowa in an eventual 10-point win. Both teams scored nearly at will in this one, but the Spartans’ outstanding three-point shooting masked a high turnover rate that is becoming worrisome. This has been Tom Izzo’s best-ever team at limiting turnovers (at least in the tempo-free era), but the past three games have seen Michigan State turn it over on nearly a quarter of its trips. Is this a temporary blip, the result of some long-absent players getting back into the groove? The Spartans had better hope so, as

Video: MSU honors seniors Thursday night

Michigan State honored its three seniors, including Keith Appling and Adreian Payne, following Thursday night’s 86-76 win over Iowa. The senior class has helped lead the Spartans to a Big Ten championship, two Sweet 16 appearances, and a fourth NCAA bid on the way this season.

Lacey Holsworth joins Adreian Payne on Senior Night

It’s a story that can make just about anyone tear up. Several years ago, there were worries about whether 8-year-old Lacey Holsworth would ever walk again. Tonight, she did just that, with her hero, Adreian Payne, right by her side. Holsworth accompanied Payne on the Breslin Center court for his senior day ceremony, following the Spartans 86-76 win over Iowa. Incredible moment as Lacey Holsworth accompanies @MSU_Basketball senior Adreian Payne for Senior Night ceremony. – http://t.co/70JP2TjxsW — Michigan St. on BTN (@BTN_Michigan_St) March 7, 2014 Payne and Lacey were introduced a couple years back after he and other members of

Video: Tempers flare in Iowa-Michigan State game

Tempers flared in East Lansing on Thursday night, and it came to a head late in the second half of Michigan State’s 86-76 win over Iowa. Iowa’s Zach McCabe and Michigan State’s Travis Trice got tangled up on an inbound play, and it appeared that McCabe brought Trice to the ground. The play resulted in a foul on both players – much to the displeasure of the Michigan State crowd – and a technical foul on McCabe, who was disqualified for five fouls. Michigan State reserve Russell Byrd was ejected for leaving the designated team bench area. VIDEO: Zach McCabe gets

Big Ten: average or great? We soon will find out

It seems every radio show I am on, I’m asked this question: Is the Big Ten the best league in America? Or, it is an average league with a lot of good teams? It’s a good question, and one that we soon will find out. The conference doesn’t appear to have an elite team. Michigan State was the closest thing to that template when the season dawned, but injuries have proven ruinous for the Spartans. Wisconsin has the fewest overall losses of any team with just five. But all five defeats have come in Big Ten play. Even worse, the
