There’s no bigger body in the Big Ten than Nebraska’s Andre Almeida. The senior checks in at 314 pounds – a very generous number – and he’s also 6-foot-11. So, yeah, he’s huge. Like to the point that no player wants stand in his way and take a charge or draw a charge on him. Nebraska reserve Jordan Tyrance had to do both in practice recently, and the video of it (sound effects, too) is classic.

Dan Dakich has heard the drumbeat all season: The Big Ten is the nation’s best conference. And, he’s not going to argue that notion.

As we do every March, Josh and I take to a back-and-forth format to recap everything we saw in the regular season. Here’s part one, covering our all-conference team and other thoughts on half the conference members.

What a season, huh? It might not even be hyperbole to say it was one of the best we’ve seen. From the Big Ten dominating the national polls to the countless upsets to the incredible finishes, the 2012-13 season is one we won’t soon forget. There also were more than our share of memorable plays. I rank the top ones (non-dunks) in this post. I’ll have an all-dunk post later this week.
