Big Ten Geeks: Early Dominance

This weekend featured a lot of games where the home team came out of the gate strong, though there were some second half scares as well. Indiana ran all over Minnesota in the first half on Saturday, opening up a 23-point lead after the first 20 minutes. Team Two-Point Pct. Three-Point Pct. Turnover Pct. Points per Possession Indiana 66.7 63.6 12.5 1.63 Minnesota 53.8 38.5 37.5 0.91 Throw in the fact that the Hoosiers secured half of their (rare) misses, and this is about as close as you’ll find to offensive perfection. There was not a single statistical category in

No. 5 Indiana holds off No. 10 Minnesota, 88-81

Victor Oladipo had 20 points and six rebounds and Jordan Hulls knocked down four 3-pointers, helping No. 5 Indiana hold off No. 10 Minnesota’s late charge for an 88-81 victory Saturday. The Hoosiers (15-1, 3-0 Big Ten) have won six straight overall and 18 in a row at Assembly Hall. Minnesota (15-2, 3-1) was led by Andre Hollins with 25 points but had its 11-game winning streak snapped despite rallying from 23 points down at halftime to within 3 with 19.5 seconds left.

Big Ten Geeks: Gophers make a statement

On Wednesday, Minnesota made a statement, beating Illinois by 17 points in Champaign. This was a strange one, as the Illini actually negated the Gophers’ huge on-paper advantage on the glass. Instead, it was a big discrepancy in shooting accuracy that told the story. Minnesota, normally a mediocre outside shooting team, hit nine of 15 from behind the arc, while Illinois made just three of its 24 three-point attempts. The Gopher defense certainly had a lot to do with the Illini’s struggles–there just weren’t all that many open looks–but it was also just one of those nights (see Andre Hollins’ banked-in three from nearly midcourt to

Today's links: More challenges ahead for Gophers

Minnesota’s full power and glory was on display during its romp over Illinois last night. So, let’s start there with the daily links, shall we? The Golden Gophers showed they are a true top-10 team that will compete for the Big Ten title—and thus a Final Four bid—with the 84-67 victory. The win in Champaign—the Gophers’ 11th in a row this season-was the start of a rugged three-game skein that sees Minnesota go to Indiana on Saturday before coming home to play Michigan on Thursday, Jan. 17. If the Gophers can get a split with the Hoosiers and Wolverines, it

Twitter: OK, now 15-1 Minnesota is for real

Heading into Wednesday night’s game at No. 13 Illinois, No. 10 Minnesota still had its doubters. This was, for the most part, the same team that missed the NCAA tournament last season. So, it was only normal that it would have naysayers despite a 14-1 record, the lone loss coming to No. 1 Duke abroad. After the 84-67 road beatdown over a talented Illini team, well, the Gophers have their believers. And they should. Check out some of the Twitter praise for the Gophers in this post.

No. 10 Minnesota gets road win over No. 13 Illinois

Joe Coleman scored 29 points and Andre Hollins added 19 to help No. 8 Minnesota top Illinois Wednesday 84-67 and remain undefeated in the Big Ten. The Gophers (15-1, 3-0 Big Ten) held off a charge by the 12th-ranked Illini midway through the second half. Joseph Bertrand pulled Illinois within at 44-42 on a short jumper with 12:37 left.

And as Illinois piled up fouls, Trevor Mbakwe connected on layup with 6:15 to play for a

Big Ten Geeks: Master of his Craft?

Ohio State picked up a solid road victory at Purdue last night, but the bigger story may be the point guard controversy simmering in Columbus. After just five minutes of play, the Buckeyes’ Aaron Craft  picked up his second foul and headed for the bench, with his team leading by a point. Replacement Shannon Scott would ignite the team, helping to grow a double digit halftime lead that Ohio State would not relinquish, despite some valiant efforts from the Boilermakers. Scott was excellent in many ways, but most impressive was his ability to create for others on the offensive end. Scott finished with
