Week in review: Badgers continue to impress

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for my weekly 3-pointers, which is my own look back and forward in the world of Big Ten hoops. What do we mean “wild?” Did you not see this shot, this ejection, and this OT thriller? Here’s what we cover on this Friday: Three teams on the rise, three teams sinking, and three things I learned this week. We also cover my three most impressive wins from the past seven days and the three biggest games coming up in the next week. Let’s do this. Three Stocks to Buy Minnesota. How ‘bout those

Big Ten Geeks: Spartan Shooting

In the first epic clash of the conference season, Michigan State held serve at home against a relentless Ohio State team. Does this give the Spartans the inside track on the Big Ten title? Let’s dive in. In a lot of ways, this was a tough game to figure. MSU fans can point to the fact that their team led nearly the entire game, and that Michigan State’s ability to build a 17-point lead over the first 31:58 of game time is indicative of who is the better team.

Adreian Payne rises for back-to-back putbacks

Michigan State’s Adreian Payne didn’t start and it wasn’t a guarantee he would play Tuesday night vs. No. 3 Ohio State due to a sprained right foot. This just in: Payne looked good! The star senior soared for back-to-back putbacks in the second half of the fifth-ranked Spartans’ 72-68 overtime win over previously undefeated Ohio State. Watch the sequence in this post.

Video: Izzone busts out 'Yes!' chant vs. Ohio State

WWE’s Daniel Bryan and Michigan State center Travis Jackson must have loved the chant the Izzone did multiple times in Tuesday night’s overtime win over No. 3 Ohio State. During Ohio State free throws and whenever it felt like it, really, the entire student section busted out the wrestler’s “Yes!” chant, the same one Jackson did to celebrate a touchdown vs. Michigan. Watch it this post. [ MORE: Watch Adreian Payne rise for back-to-back putbacks ] ICYMI: @ThisistheIZZONE did @WWEDanielBryan's "Yes" dance during a #Buckeyes FT, and it was fantastic.

This already marks the second top-five matchup of the season for the Spartans, who defeated then-No. 1 Kentucky on November 12.
