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.

Purdue rolls to 89-73 win over Minnesota

D.J. Byrd and Rapheal Davis each scored 18 points as Purdue rolled past Minnesota 89-73 on Saturday. The Boilermakers (15-16, 8-10) won for only the third time in seven games as they head into next week’s Big Ten tournament. [ RELATED: Vote for Purdue’s best 2012-13 dunk | And Minnesota’s ] For Minnesota (20-11, 8-10), it was another dreadful day on the road. Forward Trevor Mbakwe got into early foul trouble and the Golden Gophers looked flat as they fell into an early 15-point deficit. They never recovered. Andre Hollins scored 24 points, Rodney Williams added 13 points and Mbakwe

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.

Nebraska holds off Minnesota, 53-51, in Devaney swan song

Brandon Ubel scored Nebraska’s last 10 points and finished with 15, and the Cornhuskers defeated Minnesota 53-51 Wednesday night in the final college basketball game at Bob Devaney Sports Center. The Cornhuskers (14-16, 5-12 Big Ten) never trailed, and Nebraska students stormed the court to celebrate the victory over the team that upset then-No. 1 Indiana just last week. Dylan Talley added 12 points for the Huskers.

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

Big Ten Geeks: Bricks, a whole lot of bricks

It was a terrible shooting weekend for the title contenders. Collectively, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Michigan were 14 for 76 from three this weekend. Two of those teams nonetheless found a way to win. Thanks to Trey Burke’s rip of Keith Appling in the final minute of play, Michigan was able to defend its home court against the Spartans. Although this was a hard fought game, neither team played particularly well on the offensive end. Michigan missed all 12 of its three-point attempts, while Michigan State managed to make just 41 percent of its two-pointers. Credit the defense if
