Most pivotal player for every B1G hoops team

The college basketball season is just past the midway point, and the Big Ten picture is beginning to take shape. With five teams ranked in the latest polls, it’s clear the Big Ten is, once again, one of the nation’s elite conferences. The conference’s terrific star players have a lot to do with the Big Ten’s standing. But what about the players who aren’t household names, the all-important role players or glue guys who better their respective teams? Here is a list of the most pivotal player for every Big Ten hoops team, listed in order of the Big Ten

Big Ten Geeks: Back to square one

Weekends like this one have me considering whether it’s just better to disregard the non-conference season entirely. Because despite the last three months, there was a lot of reverting to preseason expectations. In turn… Wisconsin’s Defense is a Concern Last year the Badgers were an elite defensive unit that couldn’t score.

Both players were fantastic defenders, but they also struggled to put the ball in the basket. With those offensive anchors removed—and replaced by personnel with loads of offensive

Three Stocks to Buy: 1. Minnesota. Dinkytown residents probably woke up this morning to hear chants of “Ski-U-Mah!” Why not? Minnesota looks legit after

Big Ten Geeks: The Gophers arrive

Minnesota picked up a huge resume win over Ohio State, 63-53 in 63 possessions. The story of this game was on the interior, where Elliott Eliason made his presence felt on both ends. The bearded big man went 6-for-8 on twos, leading a Gopher attack that scored a point per trip despite a bad night from the perimeter. Minnesota’s poor three-point shooting and bad turnover rate weren’t a huge surprise, given the defensive strength of the Buckeye backcourt, but the Gophers’ ability to score inside was unexpected. %Shots at rim %Shots 2pt J %Shots 3pt Ohio State 18% 51% 31%
