Dienhart: Just say 'No' to divisions for hoops

At its spring meetings in Chicago, the Big Ten may discuss if it should have divisional play in basketball, as Rutgers and Maryland are set to join the league in 2014 to make the conference a 14-team entity. My advice: The Big Ten should take a lead from the other major conferences—ACC (12 teams), SEC (14), Pac-12 (12), old Big East (15), Atlantic 10 (16)–and not have divisional play. Yes, having divisions would make for some fun races down the stretch, as more teams likely would be jockeying for division championships. But in the SEC’s instance, it had some years


Ranking 2013 Big Ten/ACC Challenge games

It’s time to talk the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The event might be six-plus months away, but the 2013 matchups were released Wednesday afternoon. This year’s event is Dec. 3-4, with six games each night, and it features first-year ACC members Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. That last part, the addition of the three perennial Big East contenders, makes this event even more intriguing and far more daunting for the Big Ten. Not only does the ACC gain those three teams, but with 15 teams total, it gets to keep last year’s three-worst teams (Clemson, Virginia Tech & Wake Forest) out

April 28 was the deadline for underclassmen to enter the NBA Draft, so the draft pool is now set. The big day comes June 27, but before that comes the draft lottery on May 21. The Big Ten saw five players leave early: Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas; Michigan’s Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr.; Indiana’s Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo. The conference also saw some star underclassmen stay as Gary Harris and Adreian Payne opted to return to Michigan State after contemplating jumping to the NBA. Think you know which Big Ten underclassmen will find the most success in the

Video: Another Nik Stauskas trey fest

Nik Stauskas promised it on Twitter. On Wednesday, he delivered the goods. The Michigan guard put on another remarkable shooting exhibition (watch earlier one) on his outdoor court and posted the proof on YouTube. Once again, the sharpshooter drained trey after trey despite bad weather conditions. This time, Stauskas traded the cold for rain. [ RELATED: Where does Stauskas rank among Big Ten guards in 2013-14? ] No matter. Stauskas drained 70-of-76 attempts (92 percent), including the first 46. Unreal. Don’t believe me? Watch the video above. And here’s the previous display:

Dienhart: McGary, Robinson team up to stay on

Trey Burke announced he was leaving Michigan after two seasons. And Tim Hardaway, Jr., followed him out the door soon thereafter after three seasons in Ann Arbor. But Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III are returning after sensational freshman seasons. The duo made a joint announcement today after helping the team to a 31-8 overall record and 12-6 mark in the Big Ten before helping lead Michigan on a charge to the national championship game, where it lost to Louisville. It was the school’s first trip to the title game since it made consecutive trips in 1992 and 1993. Robinson

Harris stays; McGary, Robinson to announce today

Michigan State’s hopes to contend for a Big Ten title next season got a boost Thursday when Gary Harris announced he’s coming back for his sophomore season. Michigan announced today that freshmen Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will hold a 5:30 p.m. ET press conference to announce their decisions. Playing in the NBA is definitely a goal of mine, and something that I’ve always dreamed of, but those dreams can wait for another day,” Harris said in a statement released by the school. “I think additional experience and maturity will be huge in my development as a player.

Dienhart: Hardaway Jr. makes 'curious' decision

First, it was Trey Burke declaring for the NBA draft. Wednesday, it was Michigan teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. making his future plans known. Hardaway’s decision to go pro is a more curious one, when you consider he’s projected by many to be a second-round selection. At best, he could slip into the late first round. Bottom line: Hardaway is a role player—at best—who always likely will have to fight for a roster spot. For what it’s worth, here’s a look at where a couple mock drafts have Hardaway Jr. going: [ RELATED: View 2013 NBA Draft Big Ten
