Review & Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks

If you haven’t already made an appointment for the psychiatrist’s couch, do so. The craziness that is 2014 Big Ten basketball continues with plenty more to come. Keep that straightjacket handy. Here’s my weekly look back at what we just witnessed—with a peek ahead. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Wisconsin. The Badgers started 16-0, then lost five of six games. To say that self-doubt crept into the mind of Bucky is an understatement. But since that funk, Wisconsin has won four in a row, including triumphs over the likes of Michigan State (home) and Michigan (away). Welcome back, Bucky! 2.

DeAndre Mathieu Q&A: I like the up-tempo style

The Big Ten features many dynamic newcomers who have had a profound impact on the conference this season.

Is Nebraska on NCAA bubble? We asked Jerry Palm’s Jerry Palm joined Tuesday night’s “Big Ten Finale” to give his latest thoughts on the Big Ten’s NCAA bubble teams, most notably Nebraska. The Huskers, fresh off Sunday’s stunning upset at then-No. 9 Michigan State, have won five of six and have a manageable schedule remaining.

Merriman: My Mount Rushmore of B1G hoops players

Who would make your Mount Rushmore of Big Ten basketball players? That has been a common question asked after four-time NBA MVP LeBron James selected Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson. The same question can be posed to Big Ten fans. With so many good options, it is tough to choose just four top players in Big Ten basketball history. With that said, we wanted to make it a little easier for you.
