Nebraska's Walker throws down one-handed alley-oop

For a day, Nebraska did it all and showed what kind of team it can be when everything comes together. It came in Saturday’s decisive victory over struggling Illinois, and Caleb Walker’s ridiculous one-handed alley-oop highlighted it all. The thunderous second-half  jam — listen to the rim! — was a thing of beauty. In transition, Walker beat the Illini down the floor and was rewarded with a perfect pass toward the rim from point guard Bo Spencer. Watch the terrific alley-oop now. And speaking of Walker alley-oops, how could we forget this one? Find more “Did You See This?’ videos,

Three-Pointers: Sparty vs. Brutus

It has been an interesting week, with the league title chase coming into sharper focus with Michigan State’s big win at Ohio State. It will come down to Sparty vs. Brutus for the title, which is what we thought would happen back in October. So, it looks like the other Big Ten teams are relegated to a chase for third place. The out pouring of brutal honesty by Illinois coach Bruce Weber after a tough home loss to Purdue on Wednesday may have been the biggest story of the week. Still, on the court, there’s lots to look forward to

Big Ten Geeks: Boiling Over

Purdue picked up a huge victory for their at-large profile at Illinois on Wednesday. This game was mostly decided in the first half, as the Boilers jumped out to a 13-point lead after 16 minutes. Bruce Weber’s team couldn’t stop the smaller Purdue lineup, and it failed to take advantage at the other end by getting the ball to Meyers Leonard. From that point forward, the Illini played much better, even using a triangle-and-two to good effect in the second half, but the Boilers would never fully relinquish their lead. The split of the efficiencies tells the story of too

Big Ten Geeks: Bubble Edition

As we hit mid-February, the thoughts of college basketball fans naturally turn to the impending NCAA Tournament, especially to that dreaded B-word that gives college coaches heartburn–bubble. The Big Ten is not immune to this syndrome; in fact, four conference members find themselves squarely on that bubble. One of them was in action last night, while the other three will play tonight. Let’s examine these squads that are teetering on the edge. Last night, Minnesota missed a golden opportunity in a 10-point home loss to Ohio State. From an early 12-12 tie, the Buckeyes went on a 20-0 run, putting

Dienhart: Who's My Top Star This Week?

Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger or Michigan State’s Draymond Green? Who is the best player? It may be neither. Perhaps it’s Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor or Indiana’s Cody Zeller.
