Big Ten Geeks: What's at stake in Indy

The Big Ten tournament tips off Thursday at noon ET, and it appears to be a wide open field, at least if you trust efficiency margin as a predictive tool. The last time the conference had only one team ranked in the KenPom top 10 was in 2010, when 6-seed Minnesota made a run to the tournament final to secure an unlikely at-large bid. Might we see something similar this time around? You can view the official bracket here. The teams with the most to gain (and lose) in Indianapolis are obvious. Minnesota is believed by many to currently reside on

Drew Crawford Q&A: 'We’re a blue-collar team'

The Big Ten will lose one of its most unsung, talented and classy players soon, as Northwestern’s Drew Crawford figures to be suiting up for the last time in his Wildcat career in the Big Ten tourney this week. Enjoy every last dribble. His fifth and final season in Evanston hasn’t gone as expected, as NU brings a 13-18 overall record and a 6-12 Big Ten mark to Indianapolis for the tourney. Goals of taking the program to its first NCAA appearance are basically dashed—save for a miracle run to a league tourney title this weekend. Still, the 6-5, 215-pound

Four Openers: Let's preview Thursday's games

The Big Ten tourney kicks off on Thursday in Indianapolis with four games. Teams seeded No. 5-12 will play. The bad news for these clubs: Just one team seeded lower than No. 4 ever has won the Big Ten tourney: No. 6 Iowa in 2001. So, odds are, none of these teams will be cutting down the nets on Sunday in Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Here’s a preview of each contest. No. 8 Indiana vs. No. 9 Illinois: Thursday scoreboard | Watch on BTN2Go The skinny on Indiana: It has been a disappointing season for the Hoosiers. Last year, Indiana won

Big Ten Geeks: Regular season wrap and hardware

Well, it’s that time again—time to highlight all of our correct predictions, and whitewash all of the things we got wrong! See our Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller wrap up the regular season and hand out hardware in this post. Josh: I’ll start. Boy, what a great prediction it was to say Michigan had a bigger upside than Michigan State. That was a fairly unpopular call at the time, as most were more than willing to just hand the hardware to the Spartans. But the Wolverines just returned too many sophomore minutes to ignore. I really believe

Dienhart: Scouting the Big Ten tourney field

The Big Ten has revealed the bracket for its tourney, which kicks off on Thursday in Indianapolis. There are many interesting storylines, as Michigan looks for its first Big Ten tourney crown since the inaugural event in 1998. In fact, that’s the only time the Wolverines have won the tourney. The Big Ten tourney has belonged to the favorites over the years. Only three times has a team seeded No. 3 or lower won it: Michigan was a No. 4 in 1998; Iowa turned the trick as a No. 6 in 2001; Purdue won it all as a No. 3
