Indiana earns No. 1 seed in Big Ten tourney

The Big Ten announced Sunday night the bracket for the 2013 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, which will be held March 14-17 at the United Center in Chicago. Indiana, thanks to Sunday’s late comeback victory at Michigan, earned the No. 1 seed after claiming its first outright Big Ten title since 1993. See all of the seeds and Day 1 matchups in this post.

Indiana edges Michigan, wins outright crown

Cody Zeller made a go-ahead layup with 13 seconds left and altered Trey Burke‘s shot at the other end, lifting No. 2 Indiana to a 72-71 victory over No. 7 Michigan on Sunday that gave the Hoosiers their first outright Big Ten title in two decades. The Hoosiers (26-5, 14-4) trailed by five points in the last minute but took advantage when the Wolverines (25-6, 12-6) were unable to seal it at the foul line. A couple of Michigan’s rivals surely wish the Wolverines had won. Ohio State, which beat Illinois on Sunday, needed an Indiana loss to earn a

B1G tourney seed update: MSU, Michigan eye No. 3 seed

Before the Big Ten’s final two regular-season games tip, let’s take a look at how the results will impact Big Ten tournament seeds. Here’s what we know before Indiana-Michigan and Northwestern-Michigan State close out the Big Ten’s regular season: Indiana is the No. 1 seed, Northwestern is No. 11, and only seeds 3-5 are up for grabs.

Big finish looms for Big Ten regular season

The Big Ten will put on bow on the regular season this weekend, capping what has been a wild and wondrous ride during a season that has seen Indiana and Michigan each hold the No. 1 ranking at some point. And Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota all have been ranked in the top 10 at various points this season. This weekend could add to the wild and wooliness. In fact, by the time the sun sets on Sunday, there may be a four-way tie for first place in the Big Ten between Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan State outruns Wisconsin

In what amounted to an elimination game for a potentially shared Big Ten title, Michigan State steamrolled Wisconsin by 15 points. This game was certainly no work of art, as both teams struggled mightily to score in the half court set. The defense had the upper hand at both ends of the court, but the difference came in the form of Wisconsin live-ball turnovers. When the Spartans got steals, they were able to score in transition. Otherwise, the Badgers played their typical shut down defense–Michigan State scored only 0.77 points per trip in possessions that did not follow a steal.

No. 7 Michigan tops Purdue, keeps title hopes alive

Trey Burke had 26 points and five rebounds to lead No. 7 Michigan’s rally to an 80-75 victory over Purdue on Wednesday night. Terone Johnson scored a career-high 35 points and Rapheal Davis added 15 for Purdue (14-16 7-10 Big Ten), who have lost five of their last seven games. [ VIDEO: “Big Dog” & “The Custodian” greet Coach Keady ] Nik Stauskas had 17 points and Tim Hardaway, Jr. had 16 points and five rebounds for the Wolverines (25-5, 12-5), who have won four of their last five games and remain in the race for a share of the

Taking a close look at Big Ten title scenarios

Say “Hello” to chaos, Big Ten. Indiana’s 67-58 loss at home on Senior Night to Ohio State on Tuesday has opened the possibilities for Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Ohio State to claim a share of the Big Ten title. The Hoosiers could have put a bow on their first outright Big Ten title since 1992-93 with a victory over the Buckeyes. It didn’t happen, as Indiana now has lost two of its last three games. Some wonder if the Hoosiers still will merit being the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament. They may have to do some work

Big Ten Geeks: Buckeyes break open title race

Ohio State shook up the Big Ten title race with an impressive victory at Indiana. This one was all about the Buckeyes’ defense, spearheaded by Aaron Craft and Shannon Scott, as they held the Hoosiers to their second-lowest output of the season (Indiana actually scored slightly worse in the win at Iowa, albeit in a lot more possessions). The lifeblood of the Hoosiers’ offense–frequent trips to the foul line–was cut off by the foul-averse defense we’ve come to expect from Thad Matta’s teams, and Indiana shot a lowly 39 percent on twos to boot (thanks in no small part to
