Big Ten Geeks: Looking Ahead to 2013-14

We’re now officially in the college basketball offseason, a long seven months where the NBA playoffs, major league baseball, and eventually football serve as poor stand-ins for our sports attention. But before we shift into that fruitless exercise, let’s take a quick look at what awaits us beyond the gap. While these numbers will likely change over the next week (especially for Michigan), here’s a current summary of what each team returns for 2013-14: With these numbers in mind, here’s a few thoughts on each team: Indiana will take a major drop, but it helps to drop from such a

2013 NBA Draft: Big Ten early entrants

The 2013 NBA Draft is Thursday, June 27. Any underclassman who enters his name into the draft has until Tuesday, April 16 to withdraw and retain college eligibility. Several Big Ten players face the decision of staying in school or turning pro. See all the decisions in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Wolverines come up short

In Monday’s national championship, Michigan kept up its impressive tournament run of scoring on the college game’s best defenses, but its own defense just couldn’t slow Louisville enough to take home the title. In the first half, Michigan’s offensive efficiency came from the unlikeliest of sources. Trey Burke picked up his second foul just nine minutes into the game, and the reins of the attack were handed to freshman backup Spike Albrecht, who had scored a total of 67 points all season. Improbably, Albrecht scorched the nets for 17 points on just seven shots in the first half, including four-for-four

Power Rankings: Super-early first look at 2013-14

It’s never too early to look ahead to next season, right? Actually, yes, the day after the completion of one season is entirely too early to start analyzing the next. But even if we don’t know which stars will return and which ones will go pro, it’s fun to consider what next season may bring. See my super-early 2013-14 power rankings in this post. And once all the NBA decision are made, I’ll update this list. [ RELATED: How did I do with last year’s super-early rankings? ] No. 1: Michigan State – If Gary Harris and Adreian Payne stay

Clothes Call: Grading this year's alternate uniforms

The 2012-13 hoops season now complete, it’s time to look back at all of the alternate/throwback uniforms Big Ten teams wore during the successful campaign. By my count, there were 13 new special looks, four of which came from NCAA runner-up Michigan. See all of the uniforms and get my grades for each one in the gallery in this post. Did I miss one? Leave it in the comment box below or send it to me on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina). To see the grades, click on any image and it appears in the text portion at the bottom of the photo.

Today's links: What next for Michigan?

Michigan’s run for the national championship game up short. But the Wolverines have no shame in falling 82-76 to No. 1 overall seed Louisville. Have to start daily links right there. Michigan’s improbable march to the national championship game is evidence that the program is back among the nation’s elite—and it’s not going anywhere. Hey, Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free-Press concurs. So, you know it must be true. Was this Trey Burke’s final game in Maize and Blue? Tim Hardaway, Jr.? Mitch McGary? Glenn Robinson III? Perhaps. But, no matter who leaves early, the Wolverines still figure to have

Dienhart: 'Paint this season a success'

Michigan’s trip to the national championship game was further validation of the Big Ten’s greatness this season. But, without this journey to the summit of college basketball, I don’t think that would have been true. For a while, it looked like the Big Ten was going to dominate this NCAA tourney. The Big Ten got seven schools in the Big Dance on Selection Sunday. Then, the conference went 10-3 over the opening three rounds, advancing four teams—more than any other league–to the Sweet 16. That’s when some dared to pose the question: Could the Big Ten advance, ahem, four teams

Quick Hit: Michigan denied first title since 1989

With Trey Burke saddled with foul trouble, Michigan was fueled in the first half by none other than Spike Albrecht, who had 17 points. Yes, 17 points. That helped the Wolverines hold a 38-37 halftime cushion, although it could have been more as they led by as many as 12 points. But Louisville turned up the heat in the second half, outscoring Michigan, 45-38, and holding Albrecht scoreless to win its third national championship (1980 and 1986). What it means: Rick Pitino became the first coach ever to win national titles at two different schools. The Big Ten is still

Twitter: Spike Albrecht this, Spike Albrecht that

America, Spike Albrecht. Spike Albrecht, America. The Michigan freshman introduced himself to the nation with an out-of-this-world first half, in which the guard hit 6-of-7 shots and scored a career-high 17 points. His previous best entering the night: Seven. Check out the entertaining Twitter reaction to Albrecht’s unexpected first-half performance. See all the tweets below and hear Trey Burke talk about Albrecht at the end of the video above. Damnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Louisville Celebration

Louisville clips Michigan, 82-76, in NCAA title game

Luke Hancock made all five of his 3-pointers and led Louisville to its first NCAA men’s basketball championship since 1986 with a 82-76 victory over Michigan on Monday night. Coach Rick Pitino added this title to the one he won at Kentucky in 1996 and is the first coach to win a championship at two schools. Earlier in the day, Pitino was elected to the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame. Hancock scored 22 points and Peyton Siva had 18 for the Cardinals (35-5), who trailed by 12 late in the first half. Trey Burke had 24 points for Michigan (31-8),
