Read Thursday's Big Ten headlines roundup

Indiana’s strange and bizarre season took another unexpected and maddening turn last night with a home loss to last-place Penn State. How can this IU team beat top-10 squads like Wisconsin and Michigan in Bloomington, and then lose to the likes of the Nittany Lions and Northwestern at home? It’s safe to say, panic has set in for Indiana. This team just can’t shoot. And the turnover issues persist. The Hoosiers led by seven with two minutes to play. And they failed to score a basket in the final 5:16. It didn’t help that IU turned the ball over three

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan wins in Columbus

Michigan came up with big road win over Ohio State thanks to a second-half surge. The Buckeyes seemed to be in control of this game, as they led for nearly all of the game’s first 29 minutes, but the Wolverines then ripped off a 12-0 run fueled by Aaron Craft turnovers and Michigan layups to take a lead they would not relinquish. Ohio State’s tough interior defense set the tone in the first half, but the explosive nature of the Wolverines’ offense was on full display late in the game. First Half Points Per Possession Second Half Points Per Possession

Dienhart: Hot or not, players can't cross that line

The Big Ten coaches were buzzing Monday about this weekend’s incident where Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart shoved an opposing team’s fan. Smart later apologized and was subsequently suspended. “I’m sure every coach in the country is going to be reminding their team of it today, if they didn’t yesterday,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said Monday. “You can’t ever let anybody get in the way of your career, in the way of your responsibility to your team.” Here Crean below: [MORE: Hear Big Ten coaches on the weekly teleconference here. ] And watch the Smart incident below.

Big Ten Geeks: There's No D in Michigan

Iowa pummeled Michigan on Saturday with an offensive attack that’s as good as we’ve seen this season. Iowa missed 32 shots and rebounded 15 of them. Seven turnovers. 59 percent from three. The Lakers don't beat a team with those numbers. — Patrick Vint (@HS_BHGP) February 8, 2014 Those are some terrifying numbers, and they added up to 1.4 points per possession for the Hawkeyes. Roy Devyn Marble led the attack with 26 points (17 shots), which included a 6 for 10 performance from behind the three-point line. Maybe Iowa was due. After all this team shot much better in

Here's one topic mentioned every time your team plays

Watch a conference enough, and you can’t help but notice that every team has a common theme that gets mentioned in every broadcast. Chances are, you know your team’s topic of conversation. But what about the rest of the Big Ten teams? Here’s my recurring subject for every Big Ten team. Illinois. Bruce Weber didn’t recruit Champaign native Rayvonte Rice. Indiana. Yogi Ferrell has a new role now that Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller are in the NBA. Iowa. Depth! Michigan. Tie: Nik Stauskas isn’t just a shooter. And, the Wolverines are without preseason All-America Mitch McGary. Michigan State. Injuries!
