We here at BTN always enjoy a good shoe highlight. There's something funny about a player blowing a tire, and seeing how he reacts. Some continue to play like nothing happened. Some pick up the shoe and tie it. And some pick it up and hold it in their hand until the next whistle.

Let me be the first to apologize to Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan. Also, no offense to Iowa’s Peter Jok. And, I hope Maryland’s Melo Trimble understands. But as the calendar is about to flip to February, there is no Big Ten player more valuable, versatile and dynamic than Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ.
It's getting harder and harder to ignore what Mark Turgeon's young and talented team is doing. What it's done is rattle off a 19-2 record, including a 7-1 clip in Big Ten play, to little fanfare. That's changing, at least in Jon Crispin's latest Big Ten Power Rankings.
As the conference season chugs toward the halfway point, it’s becoming clearer that Wisconsin and Maryland are the teams to beat. But keep an eye on Northwestern, which has won six in a row.
Another week, another chance for Wisconsin and Maryland to assert their dominance in the Big Ten. And it’s becoming more apparent that Northwestern is a legit NCAA team, as the Wildcats have ripped off six wins in a row. Can NU win the Big Ten?

Northwestern got a monster game from Dererk Pardon (19 points, 22 rebounds) to push past Nebraska Thursday, 73-61. It was the Wildcats' fifth straight win, good for 6-2 in Big Ten play.
The clock is winding down. You want the ball in one player's hands. Which Big Ten player would you choose? We asked a handful of Big Ten media members for their choice.
