If the Big Ten had an All-Star Weekend...

NBA All-Star Weekend is upon us, and the BTN.com team thought it would be fun to choose Big Ten participants for the annual Saturday night events and the All-Star Game. See our picks for who would compete in a mythical Big Ten Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, Slam Dunk Contest and the All-Star Game in this post. Here’s how this worked: We split the league into East (Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Ohio State) and West (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin), using the Big Ten’s new football divisional setup, with BTN.com web editor Sean Merriman taking the East

Who has Big Ten's best homecourt advantage?

There is no greater asset to a team than a good homecourt advantage. And, there are several intimidating venues in the Big Ten. I polled seven writers who cover the league and asked them what they thought was the most intimidating Big Ten arena.

But with the Izzone surrounding the court, it gets nasty. Brad Sturdy, OrangeandBlueNews.com: It’s Michigan State when it has its White Out at the Breslin Center. Loud

Review & preview: Big Ten stocks rise & fall

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for Three-Pointers, a chance to take the temperature of the Big Ten in several different areas. It’s a good time to be John Beilein and Michigan. Conversely, it’s not such a good time to be Tom Crean and Indiana. Weekend schedules are here with TV info, latest men’s basketball standings are over here and the season’s top plays can be seen right here. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Michigan. How about those Wolverines? Just when it looked like things could go sideways with two losses in three games, Michigan waltzed into Columbus, Ohio, and

Big Ten Geeks: Hoosier collapse

On Wednesday night, Penn State stamped out any remaining Indiana tournament hopes with a shocking road upset. The Hoosiers seemingly had this game in hand the entire way, and it felt all but over when Indiana held an 11-point lead with three minutes remaining. Somehow, the Nittany Lions roared back, and they took their first lead of the entire game on a Tim Frazier layup with six seconds remaining. Yogi Ferrell missed a tough jumper at the horn, and the upset was complete. Just how crazy was that finish? Using KenPom’s win probabilities, Penn State had just a 0.2 percent chance

B1G Hoops Recap: Wisconsin, MSU notch home wins

There were two Big Ten men’s hoops games on Thursday night, and both had NCAA Tournament implications. No. 9 Michigan State cruised to an 85-70 victory over Northwestern in the early game, while No. 21 Wisconsin held off Minnesota, 78-70, in the second game of the evening. Catch up on all the scores, stats and select in-game highlights in this post.

Dienhart: What Gophers need for an NCAA bid

Most of us can agree with the notion that five Big Ten schools appear headed for the NCAA tourney: Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Ohio State and Wisconsin. And there is one school that’s seemingly on the fringe: Minnesota. The Golden Gophers can spruce up their resume with a win tonight at Wisconsin. And, let’s be honest: Minnesota’s resume needs some polishing. Richard Pitino’s club is 16-8 overall and 5-6 in the Big Ten, tied with Nebraska and Northwestern while staring up at the aforementioned five schools. But as of right now, Minnesota isn’t playing its best ball. The Gophers are

Read Thursday's Big Ten headlines roundup

Indiana’s strange and bizarre season took another unexpected and maddening turn last night with a home loss to last-place Penn State. How can this IU team beat top-10 squads like Wisconsin and Michigan in Bloomington, and then lose to the likes of the Nittany Lions and Northwestern at home? It’s safe to say, panic has set in for Indiana. This team just can’t shoot. And the turnover issues persist. The Hoosiers led by seven with two minutes to play. And they failed to score a basket in the final 5:16. It didn’t help that IU turned the ball over three

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan wins in Columbus

Michigan came up with big road win over Ohio State thanks to a second-half surge. The Buckeyes seemed to be in control of this game, as they led for nearly all of the game’s first 29 minutes, but the Wolverines then ripped off a 12-0 run fueled by Aaron Craft turnovers and Michigan layups to take a lead they would not relinquish. Ohio State’s tough interior defense set the tone in the first half, but the explosive nature of the Wolverines’ offense was on full display late in the game. First Half Points Per Possession Second Half Points Per Possession
