Crispin: Word association for departed Big Ten standouts

The Big Ten is losing some serious four-year talent. The list of names is nothing short of impressive, and it is, no doubt, headlined by Big Ten Player of the Year Denzel Valentine. Other top names who have exhausted their eligibility: Yogi Ferrell, A.J. Hammons, Caris LeVert and Jarrod Uthoff. Talk about a scary starting 5. You can create a strong bench, too, with the likes of Rapheal Davis, Jake Layman and Shavon Shields, among others. With all of the talent headed out the door, Lisa Byington asked me to play word association Tuesday night on “BTN Live.” Thing is,

Yogi Ferrell, Denzel Valentine named Wooden All-Americans

Indiana’s Yogi Ferrell and Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine are 2016 Wooden All-Americans, it was announced Monday night. [ MORE: View the full 2016 Wooden All-America Team ] The Big Ten stars are two of 10 players recognized on the prestigious annual team, selected by nearly 1,000 national college basketball media members and the Award’s former winners. Ferrell averaged 17.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists to help Indiana claim the outright Big Ten title, the second conference crown of his decorated career. The point guard, Indiana’s all-time assists leader, was first-team All-Big Ten and a member of the All-Big Ten

Dienhart: Lots of quarterback questions in Big Ten

The resume of Michigan State’s Connor Cook glistens. A three-year starter who finished his career as the winningest quarterback in school history with 34 victories (34-5 overall record, 23-2 vs. Big Ten opponents), Cook did it all for the Spartans during a spectacular career. The Big Ten Quarterback of the Year and the Unitas Award winner in 2015, Cook left campus as an all-time great. Now, the Spartans’ BMOC is gone. What’s next? Michigan State is one of several Big Ten squads that face a yawning hole under center. In fact, there are no less than nine schools with some

Big Ten Football: A look at offensive line situations

Spring practices are in full swing across the Big Ten, as schools begin to answer questions as they prepare for 2016. And no position across the conference may be under more scrutiny than offensive line, which from my estimations will be a top priority for nine schools to shore up. Here is a look at the most critical offensive line situations in the Big Ten, listed alphabetically. Illinois Guard Ted Karras was the team’s top blocker. Now, he’s gone. This unit needs to get a better push after the Illini ranked last in the Big Ten in rushing (129.3 ypg)

Upon further review: How did our Big Ten predictions shake out?

At the beginning of the basketball season, our panel of Big Ten men's basketball experts came together and made some predictions. Some were pretty good, others not so much. See what they predicted and how it compares to the end results.

Wisconsin, Indiana on Pomeroy's 2016-17 college hoops rankings

We are smack in the middle of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, but that hasn’t stopped college basketball publications from getting a step ahead of the game. [ MORE: Indiana-UNC preview | @BTNStatsGuys crunch the numbers ] College hoops guru Ken Pomeroy, who uses a statistical formula for rankings, released his Top 10 rankings for the 2016-17 college basketball season. Pomeroy posted his rankings on Twitter early Monday morning. He lists two Big Ten teams, Indiana and Wisconsin, in his Top 10.

NCAA Tournament: What just happened? And what's ahead?

The opening week of the 2016 NCAA tourney will have a special place in the history of a storied event that often causes our hearts to stop. It was four full-throated days of magical mayhem, with big shots and zany upsets the order of the day. [ MORE: View interactive NCAA tourney bracket ] The Big Ten had its share of big moments … and heartbreaking setbacks. Here is a look back … and glance ahead at the Sweet 16 week. Best play: Bronson Koenig vs. Xavier. C’mon. This is an easy one. It’s the falling-out-bounds-I-can’t-believe-it bomb launched from the

BTN LiveBIG: Basketball bonanza!

The men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments just began, and we’ve already seen plenty of surprises. For the Big Ten, some of those have been pleasant (Indiana) and others not so much (Michigan State). But no matter how far the women’s and men’s basketball teams in the conference go in the tourney (and even if they didn’t make it this season), their supporters can take pride in how people associated with those programs perform off the court. This round-up of LiveBIG stories with a b-ball bent shows off the Big Ten’s talent waaaayyyy beyond the arc: Quinn Buckner Helping Hoosiers

Photo: Denzel Valentine posts heartfelt message on Instagram

Denzel Valentine’s incredible senior season came to an end yesterday in a stunning loss to Middle Tennessee State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Valentine took to Instagram Saturday morning to reflect on his time at Michigan State and thank Spartan Nation for their incredible support over the past four seasons. “I can honestly say I have no regrets to the way I gave my all to this university and program,” Valentine said. “I had an amazing time playing the game I truly love here at this special place and I will never forget the memories with my
