Northwestern upsets No. 14 Minnesota, 55-48

Jared Swopshire scored 16 points to lead Northwestern to a 55-48 victory over No. 14 Minnesota on Wednesday night. In a game where baskets were hard to come by at times, the Wildcats (12-8, 3-4 Big Ten) made just enough shots down the stretch to beat a ranked opponent for the second time in three games while sending the Gophers (15-4, 3-3) to their third straight loss. Alex Marcotullio made a 3-pointer midway through the second half to give Northwestern a one-point lead and start the decisive 13-2 run. Reggie Hearn scored 13 points after averaging 21 in the previous

Big Ten Geeks: Spartans Outlast Badgers

Michigan State won a battle of attrition in frigid Madison, edging Wisconsin by a 49-47 score. The Spartans are now 5-0 in games decided by three points or less, and this win was especially fortunate. The Badgers did an excellent job on defense, forcing Michigan State to take an abnormally high proportion of two-point jumpers: MICHIGAN STATE FGM FGA FG% % of shots Layups/dunks/tip-ins 6 13 46% 28% Two-point jumpers 8 25 32% 53% Threes 4 9 44% 19% For the season, the Spartans dedicate only 33 percent of their shots to two-point jumpers, as they are usually able to get

Big Ten dunks: A week's worth of slams

We continue to keep our eyes (and ears) open for Big Ten men’s basketball dunks all season, and there have been plenty.

Today's links: Gophers, Wolverines clash tonight

If it’s Thursday, it must mean there is a big game in the Big Ten, right? Yep. Brace yourself for No. 5 Michigan visiting No. 9 Minnesota. Let’s begin daily links right there. This will be the first meeting of top-10 teams in the venerable Barn since—are you ready for this?—1977. Go back in time in this piece from Marcus Fuller at The Pioneer Press. While watching yet another big, Big Ten game, keep an eye on the point guard battle between Minnesota’s Andre Hollins and Michigan’s Trey Burke. It’s the clash that may decide the game. Burke knows his

Dienhart: Q&A with Minnesota PG Andre Hollins

Minnesota point guard Andre Hollins knows what’s at stake on Thursday night when No. 5 Michigan visits the Barn. The winner will remain on the heels of Big Ten front-runner Wisconsin. The loser will have two Big Ten losses, shrinking the margin for error as January is about to bleed into February. Each team is coming off a similar loss, with both rallying from big deficits only to come up short after a furious run (Minnesota at Indiana, and Michigan at Ohio State in what was the Wolverines’ first loss of the season). The matchup within the matchup that many

Big Ten Geeks: Badgers Shock Indiana

Wisconsin now owns the most impressive result in all of college basketball after its five point win at Indiana. During the Badgers’ nonconference struggles, we Geeks wondered what was up with Wisconsin’s defense. While the Badgers were still stifling the offense of many a cupcake, they were getting lit up (in a relative sense) against tournament-level teams. Well, it seems Bo Ryan’s squad has figured things out. Prior to last night, Indiana had not scored lower than 1.12 points per possession in Assembly Hall; Wisconsin held the Hoosiers below a point per trip. A large part of that dominance stemmed
