Oregon takes down Nebraska, 60-38

Oregon center Tony Woods scored 14 points and the Ducks overcame a sluggish performance on offense to defeat Nebraska 60-38 on Saturday. Forward Arsalan Kazemi also had 10 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for the Ducks (9-1), who improved to 8-0 at home this season. E.J. Singler also scored 13 for Oregon, which was held 19.4 points below its season average, including a season-low point total in the first half, though the Ducks still led 27-18 at the break. Dylan Talley led the Cornhuskers (6-3) with 11 points. [ BOX | AP RECAP | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS |

Big Ten Geeks: Christmas Wishlist, Part II

Continuing the discussion of what each team could use this holiday season. Part one here. Nebraska (6-2) Already, Tim Miles has been successful in installing parts of his system. His Colorado State and North Dakota State teams dutifully cleaned the glass on defense, and we’re seeing similar results with the Huskers (a cynic would point out that defensive rebounding was a relative strength for Nebraska last year as well. To the cynic—stop being such a Scrooge.). But the team hasn’t been as quick to adopt Miles’ affinity for attacking the basket. In each of his last three seasons, Miles’ Colorado

Big Ten Geeks: Should basketball use divisions?

With the Big Ten expanding to 14 teams, there is an open question as to whether basketball should go to divisions. Here’s our take on it. Josh: Now that the Big Ten is expanding to 14 teams, should basketball follow the lead of football and go with two divisions? Well, we can first look to a case study—the SEC. Up until this season, the SEC used a two-division format for basketball, splitting up the conference tournament by East and West. This season, the coaches voted to scrap that model, instead opting for seeding the teams based purely on conference record.

Zeller, Indiana top Big Ten Power Rankings

A month-plus into the men’s basketball season, it’s time to debut the Big Ten Power Rankings. With six teams landing in the top 19 of the latest major polls, it’s not an easy task to rank the top half of the conference. Indiana and Michigan are the top two teams so far, but what about after that? See my complete rankings in this post. 1. Indiana, 9-0 – The nation’s deepest team is about to welcome highly touted freshmen Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin – both opened season on suspension – to a rotation that already goes 10 deep.

Big Ten Geeks: Four weeks in & what do we know?

With the volume of competitive games slowing considerably this week, it seems like a good time to reflect on what we’ve seen in the first four weeks of the 2012-13 basketball season. In bullet point format, here’s what I’ve found interesting so far: Jared Berggren is an NBA player. This statement could prove a bit premature, as Berggren has struggled with conference play in his career, but Wisconsin’s senior center has been off the charts. Berggren is shooting 65 percent on twos, 41 percent on threes, and 84 percent on free throws, all while dominating the offensive glass and rarely

Nebraska can't catch No. 13 Creighton

Doug McDermott scored 27 points, Gregory Echenique had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 13 Creighton pulled away in the second half for a 64-42 victory over Nebraska in the annual meeting of the state rivals Thursday night. Creighton (8-1) won in Lincoln for the first time since 2004. Catch up on all the action on our Big Ten scoreboard and get video, stats and recaps in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Northwestern wins in Waco

It’s been a bit of a quiet week for Big Ten basketball, with most teams facing tune-up games against over-matched opponents. Let’s take a quick look at the games that weren’t complete blowouts. Northwestern jumped out to a shocking big lead at Baylor, thanks primarily to defense. After a first half in which both teams scored efficiently, the Bears scored just one point in the opening seven minutes of the second half. By the time Baylor’s offense recovered, Northwestern had an 18-point lead and some serious swagger, as evidenced by a Drew Crawford technical for hanging on the rim. Defense? Taunting techs? Is this Northwestern

Gallegos, Nebraska trip up USC, 63-51

Ray Gallegos scored 20 points and made a career-high six 3-pointers to lead Nebraska to a 63-51 victory over Southern California on Monday night. The Cornhuskers (6-1), off to their best start since 2008-09, led by as many as 20 points in the most lopsided game in the four-game series with the Trojans. The Huskers, who came into the game shooting just 29.8 percent on 3s, made a season-high 11 of 17. Dylan Talley, who made three 3s, finished with 14 points.

Big Ten Geeks: Indiana's defense impresses

All in all, it was quite a good first night for the Big Ten in its Challenge with the ACC. Let’s take a quick look at the results. The night’s marquee game was Indiana vs. North Carolina, and the nation’s number one team did not disappoint. The Hoosiers were  a double-digit favorite, so the fact that they won was not a surprise, but the manner in which they won was mighty impressive. For much of the first half, it was a back-and-forth game, with neither team really playing their best. Indiana closed the half on a run to take a
