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

Video: Rodney Williams' best slam dunk?

Four days after showing the basketball world how high he can get up, Rodney Williams decided to show everyone how long he can hang in the air. Spoiler alert: It’s a LONG time. At the end of the first half of the Penn State-Minnesota game on Saturday, Williams defied gravity, once again, with his latest highlight-reel alley-oop. Watch the dunk here. [ RELATED: Want to embed BTN.com video? Here’s how! ] Anyone else notice how Williams almost paused in the air? He hit his apex, yet stayed there as he reached back with his left arm – the same one that’s

Minnesota trounces Penn State on Senior Day

Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Minnesota held Penn State scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the game to cruise to a 73-44 victory on Saturday. Julian Welch had 10 points and seven assists and Rodney Williams had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Gophers (20-9, 8-8 Big Ten), who didn’t let the Nittany Lions spoil their Senior Day. [ VIDEO: Minnesota honors Mbakwe, seniors ] D.J. Newbill scored 15 points for Penn State (9-19, 1-15) but made just 2 of 16 field goals, and the Lions weren’t able to sneak up on Minnesota

Video: Minnesota honors Mbakwe, seniors

Prior to Saturday’s game vs. Penn State, Minnesota honored its four seniors: Andre Ingram, Trevor Mbakwe, Julian Welch and Rodney Williams. Fittingly, it was the seniors who led the Gophers to the easy 73-44 victory over the Nittany Lions. The seniors combined to score 37 points and grab 25 rebounds, led by Mbakwe’s 13 point, 13-rebound double-double. Watch the ceremony now. Oh, and there was this incredible senior highlight, too.

BTN to go inside NCAA tourney selection process

Greg Shaheen, who ran the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament for 12 years, will join BTN host Mike Hall to take fans inside the tournament selection process, from who’s in the room to where the top seeds are headed and why, to how Big Ten teams stack up in 2013. The 60-minute special, Inside the Selection Process, airs at 9 p.m. ET Monday. Shaheen, former NCAA executive vice president of Championships and Alliances, is credited with having a significant impact on the tournament’s success. He’ll talk about such things as how the committee is assembled, how it handles multiple teams from one conference, and

Better block: Rodney Williams or Eric May?

The last two nights in the Big Ten have provided college basketball fans with two exciting upsets and a pair of the more impressive blocked shots of the season. On Tuesday night, it was Rodney Williams jumping out of the gym to block a final-minute Victor Oladipo 3-pointer. And tonight, it was Eric May coming from behind to swat Terone Johnson in the final minute. Which block was better? Watch both in this post and vote below. And here’s Williams’ block from Tuesday night: Now that you’ve seen both, it’s time to vote. My answer: Rodney Williams, and it isn’t

Big Ten Geeks: Rise of the Gophers

Indiana suffered another road loss to a previously scuffling squad, this time falling at Minnesota by four points. Much has been said about Cody Zeller’s lack of offensive production on this night (nine points, four turnovers, five fouls), but the Hoosiers scored quite well with their big man scuffling. Instead, it was the defensive end where Indiana lost this game, most especially on the defensive glass. The Gophers retrieved a ridiculous 53 percent of their misses and finished nearly every rim opportunity they got. Combined with a surprisingly low turnover rate, it enabled Minnesota to hoist 11 more shots than

Ripple effects from Gophers' upset win

It was a night to remember at Williams Arena. The joint was jumping. In fact, it seemed like the roof was about to blow off the place as Minnesota pushed its way to a stunning 77-73 win over No. 1 Indiana. That’s why my daily links starts right there. Credit Trevor Mbakwe, who led the way with 21 points and 12 rebounds and also provided much-needed leadership in dominating Cody Zeller. Where has this been during Big Ten play? Indiana coach Tom Crean says the Golden Gophers were more physical than the Hoosiers. He’s correct—no, he’s VERY correct. The stats say

Video: Gopher fans storm court after upset of No. 1 Indiana

We saw the scene earlier this month in Champaign. It happened Tuesday night, too, after Minnesota knocked off No. 1 Indiana at Williams Arena. It’s safe to say, Tom Crean and the Hoosiers have seen enough of the opponent’s fans storming the court against them. Watch the Minnesota fans celebrate Tuesday’s exciting win over Indiana now. [ GALLERY: See photos of Minnesota fans storming the court ] As a comparison, here’s the Illini court storming:
