Dienhart: 64 reasons why the NCAA tourney is great

As if you needed any more reasons to celebrate the full-fledged start of the greatest spectacle in sports, here are 64 more—in no particular order—on why the NCAA Tournament is without peer. Why not 68? Because I don’t like the play-in games. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s 3 keys for every Big Ten team in NCAA tourney ] Let’s roll! 1. It’s not the BCS—or just a four-team playoff 2.

Dienhart: 3 keys for each Big Ten NCAA team

On the eve of the NCAA tournament, hope spring eternal for every team. Get hot, rip off six victories in a row, and you will be national champion. With seven teams in the field, the Big Ten has a good chance to see its first national championship since Michigan State won it all in 1999-2000. In fact, the Big Ten has four teams seeded among the top four in various regions: No. 1 Indiana; No. 2 Ohio State; No. 3 Michigan State; No. 4 Michigan. And Wisconsin is a No. 5 seed. No. 7 Illinois and No. 11 Minnesota also

Big Ten Geeks: Before the madness, a look back

As we sit on the cusp of postseason play for nine Big Ten teams, it feels an appropriate time to revisit where we were just four short months ago, previewing a season that was about to unfold before us. Did we nail it, or do we need to turn in our Geek cards? Here’s our projected Big Ten records from November compared to the actual results: Team BTG Predicted W-L Actual W-L Deviation Indiana 14-4 14-4 0 Ohio State 13-5 13-5 0 Michigan State 12-6 13-5 +1 Michigan 12-6 12-6 0 Wisconsin 11-7 12-6 +1 Minnesota 11-7 8-10 -3 Illinois 9-9

NCAA Preview: Which Minnesota team will show up?

Many are picking the No. 11 seed Gophers to knock off No. 6 UCLA in the first round of their South Region clash. Yes, Minnesota is in a funk, losing three in a row and seven of 10. But this still is a talented, athletic and physical team that’s capable of big things with players like Andre Hollins, Austin Hollins, Rodney Williams and Trevor Mbakwe, among others.

Seven important players to Big Ten's NCAA fate

Seven Big Ten teams made the NCAA tournament, and now it’s time to look at one key player from each team who could help fuel a tourney run. I’m not talking about the obvious stars, such as Trey Burke, Deshaun Thomas or Cody Zeller, here. Instead, these are guys who either have struggled lately or have heated up down the stretch. D.J. Richardson, Illinois – The Illini shoot more than 3s than anyone, and Richardson averages seven attempts from distance per game. Problem is, in the last four games, he’s a 25 percent shooter from distance (7-of-28) – not to

Big Ten Geeks: On Buckeyes & NCAA Tourney

Ohio State won the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, the fourth time that Thad Matta’s team has taken home the crown. While the Buckeyes won largely on the strength of its defense—holding Wisconsin to under 0.8 points per possession—this Ohio State team has been offensively excellent over the back half of its Big Ten schedule: Offensive Efficiency 1st 9 Big Ten Games 1.01 2nd 9 Big Ten Games 1.07 We know the Buckeyes have a great defense, but the one-dimensional nature of this team limited its ceiling. But now that Ohio State is starting to score in bunches, it’s time

Let's go dancing: Big Ten teams head to tourney

The NCAA bracket features seven Big Ten teams and that’s no shock to anyone following the conference. And the Big Ten’s power was reflected in four teams being seeded No. 4 or higher—No. 1 Indiana; No. 2 Ohio State; No. 3 Michigan State; No. 4 Michigan. Wisconsin just missed as a No. 5 seed. Here’s a look at the Big Dance through a Big Ten lens, as the league looks for its first national championship since Michigan State cut down the nets after the 1999-2000 season. Toughest path: Michigan State. Bracket makers didn’t do the Spartans any favors, making them

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 1

The tournament opener between Illinois and Minnesota didn’t offer much in the way of aesthetically pleasing play, but a buzzer beater has a way of upping the entertainment value. The Gophers turned it over on a season-worst 35 percent of their possessions, allowing the Illini to stay in the game dispute big Minnesota advantages in every other category. That set the stage for the finish, which included a wild five-shot Illinois possession that ended with a D.J. Richardson three to tie the game. The Gophers then struggled under the pressure, nearly turning it over twice before Austin Hollins stepped on
