Top 10 Big Ten dunks of 2011-12 season

LeBron James’ ridiculous dunk against Chicago on Sunday and Blake Griffin’s silly slam against Oklahoma City on Monday got us thinking about the best dunks of the 2011-12 Big Ten season. Rodney Williams, Victor Oladipo and Sam Thompson’s highlights immediately come to mind, but there have been so many other memorable dunks. See my top 10 slams in this post. Did I forget a dunk?

The Weekly Big Ten Player Rankings Are In

The race for top honors continues to be a battle between Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Michigan State’s Draymond Green. But the Big Ten also is marked by good point guard play, with players like Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor, Michigan State’s Keith Appling, Michigan’s Trey Burke, Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, Purdue’s Lewis Jackson and Penn State’s Tim Frazier, among others, excelling. How does my list this week compare to my list last week? Go look and find out. All of my rankings are over here. 1.

Who's your team's midway Big Ten MVP?

It’s time to release my latest Big Ten men’s hoops power rankings. The rankings are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply my thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands right now and who would win on a neutral court. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina or leave your comments below. This week’s rankings feature a new wrinkle, as I offer up my Big Ten MVP for all 12 teams now that we’ve reached the midpoint of the conference season. The stats that go along with each MVP includes

Dienhart: Gems litter the week's slate

 The Big Ten season is halfway over—and the best is yet to come in a conference race that remains in flux. More clarity may come this week, which shapes up as one of the best yet of the season. In particular, this is a big week for Michigan State and Indiana. And matchup-wise, I can’t wait for the battle between the Big Ten’s top freshmen: Michigan’s Trey Burke and Indiana’s Cody Zeller. See my game rankings for this week’s action in this post. 1. Ohio State at Wisconsin, Saturday, Feb. 4. This is why we suffer through long, cold, dark

Dienhart: Let's look at the week ahead

This shapes up as one of the best weeks of the season with several marquee matchups. The teams most on the spot? It’s Michigan State and Indiana, which each has two big games. The Spartans play host to Michigan and travel to Illinois; the Hoosiers have two on the road: Michigan and archrival Purdue. But don’t forget about surging Wisconsin, either. The Badgers, winners of five straight and one game out of the Big Ten lead, travel to Penn State and host first-place Ohio State. Get ready for the week ahead in this post.

All Access with BTN's Gus Johnson

BTN producers followed around popular broadcaster Gus Johnson during a recent trip to Chicago for Northwestern’s upset victory over Michigan State. From the time he got off the plane to the final whistle at Welsh-Ryan Arena, BTN cameras were there to offer a brief glimpse into the life of one of the nation’s busiest game-callers. Not only is the footage terrific, it’s informative. For example, did you know Gus has a locker room to use to get ready before the game, or that he prefers to steam his gameday attire in the shower?

As has happened lately to Tom Crean’s bunch, things fell apart and Wisconsin picked up yet another B1G victory. Let’s look at how it happened. Indiana had defended well all game, and the Hoosiers held a five point lead with just over 14 minutes remaining. Down the stretch, however, Indiana’s defensive woes returned with a vengeance, as Wisconsin poured in 28 points over the final 14 minutes (spanning just 20 possessions) to pull out the victory. So what
