Big Ten Geeks: Standing Tall

The Big Ten suffered its first losses over the past couple nights, and we learned just a little bit more about the shape of this conference. Let’s dive in. In a formula that might become common this season, Illinois struggled to score over Valparaiso’s length but did enough on defense to secure the victory. After facing two decidedly smaller teams to open the season, Illinois had trouble converting over Valpo’s big and experienced frontline. In fact, the Illini’s 35.6 effective field goal percentage is the lowest mark of the John Groce era, and last season’s team wasn’t exactly a collection

Big Ten Geeks: Spartans make a statement

In the night’s top matchup, Michigan State ran out to an early 10-0 lead against a young Kentucky team and did just enough the rest of the way to pick up a very big win. It was a tale of two halves, as the Spartans made the Wildcats look slow and disorganized over the first 20 minutes. Wish I could say MSU's fastbreaking wing attack from '05 is back, but really UK just terrible at getting back on defense. — Josh and Mike (@bigtengeeks) November 13, 2013 Defensively, Michigan State’s man-to-man defense was severely packed in, making it look almost

Can you feel it ladies and gentlemen? College basketball is officially here. The Big Ten basketball regular season is scheduled to kick off Friday night with a full-slate of action.

Fantasy Draft's Big Ten hoops mock draft results

The Big Ten men’s basketball season officially tips off Friday night. Before the ball goes into the air, the team thought it would be fun to hold a Big Ten mock draft. Our draft consisted of five teams and six rounds, and we all selected a starting 5 and one “reserve,” which could be any player. Here are some specifics before getting to the teams. The draft included senior writer Tom Dienhart, senior editor Brent Yarina, editor Sean Merriman, video operations coordinator Wesley White and Big Ten Geeks writer Josh Reed. It went in alphabetical

Big Ten Geeks: Northwestern 2013-14 Preview

Change is afoot in Evanston, as the Northwestern basketball program moves away from the Princeton offense and into a new era. Will that change bring immediate success? After 13 seasons, the Bill Carmody era has ended. It can be easy to forget after last season’s struggles, but Carmody elevated the Northwestern basketball program from “horrid” to “mediocre” in his time there. To wit, the Wildcats made four straight NITs before last season’s injury-plagued  campaign.  Four NITs might seem like a silly accomplishment to tout, but let’s not forget that this program went to only three NITs over its entire pre-Carmody
