Predict it: 2013-14 Big Ten stat leaders

Yesterday, I took a stab at my way-too-early 2013-14 All-Big Ten teams. Today, it’s time to take a way-too-early look at next season’s Big Ten statistical leaders. From scoring to steals, I offer the top candidates for each category and pick my winners. You have a say, as well. Choose your winner for each category in the polls in this post. INDIVIDUAL STAT LEADERS SCORING Drew Crawford, Northwestern Gary Harris, Michigan State Andre Hollins, Minnesota Devyn Marble, Iowa LaQuinton Ross, Ohio State Dark horse: Terone Johnson, Purdue My winner: Drew Crawford – People are sleeping on Crawford, whether it be

Drew Crawford to return to Wildcats

Northwestern senior Drew Crawford will remain at Northwestern for his final year of eligibility during the 2013-14 season. Crawford averaged 13.5 points per game earlier this season before missing the rest of it after shoulder surgery. He enters his final season of play ranked 10th in school history with 1,418 career points. An economics major, he’s graduating with one year of eligibility remaining and could have transferred. Instead, he’ll play for new coach Chris Collins, who replaced the fired Bill Carmody. “I can’t wait to be on the court with my Northwestern teammates again this upcoming season,” Crawford said in

Dienhart: Should NBA have MLB style draft?

Michigan’s John Beilein recently broached a good idea: Make the NBA draft like the MLB draft. “(My preference would) probably be very much like baseball,” Beilein said. “I think that would be a great thing. If there’s a Kobe (Bryant) or LeBron (James) out of high school, he can get that big contract and go. “If not, go (to college) for three years and make an educated decision. Then guys can redshirt and do all these things. That’s ideal in my mind.” Really, it’s a brilliant idea that I would love to see adopted. We know the colleges would like

Big Ten Geeks: Looking Ahead to 2013-14

We’re now officially in the college basketball offseason, a long seven months where the NBA playoffs, major league baseball, and eventually football serve as poor stand-ins for our sports attention. But before we shift into that fruitless exercise, let’s take a quick look at what awaits us beyond the gap. While these numbers will likely change over the next week (especially for Michigan), here’s a current summary of what each team returns for 2013-14: With these numbers in mind, here’s a few thoughts on each team: Indiana will take a major drop, but it helps to drop from such a

Power Rankings: Super-early first look at 2013-14

It’s never too early to look ahead to next season, right? Actually, yes, the day after the completion of one season is entirely too early to start analyzing the next. But even if we don’t know which stars will return and which ones will go pro, it’s fun to consider what next season may bring. See my super-early 2013-14 power rankings in this post. And once all the NBA decision are made, I’ll update this list. [ RELATED: How did I do with last year’s super-early rankings? ] No. 1: Michigan State – If Gary Harris and Adreian Payne stay

Clothes Call: Grading this year's alternate uniforms

The 2012-13 hoops season now complete, it’s time to look back at all of the alternate/throwback uniforms Big Ten teams wore during the successful campaign. By my count, there were 13 new special looks, four of which came from NCAA runner-up Michigan. See all of the uniforms and get my grades for each one in the gallery in this post. Did I miss one? Leave it in the comment box below or send it to me on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina). To see the grades, click on any image and it appears in the text portion at the bottom of the photo.

Video: Northwestern introduces Collins as new coach

Northwestern introduced longtime Duke assistant Chris Collins as its 24th men’s basketball coach Tuesday. Collins, who grew up in Northbrook, Ill., and starred at Glenbrook North High School, inherits a program that went 13-19, including 4-14 in the Big Ten, in Bill Carmody’s final season.  Watch our one-on-one interview with Collins now and find other video in this post.

Big Ten Tales: Catching up with John Shurna

Travel across the country for an NBA pre-draft workout, or walk down the stage and receive your college diploma? That’s the dilemma former Northwestern basketball standout John Shurna faced following his senior year. I recently spoke with Shurna over the phone as he shared that story and others in my latest installment of “Big Ten Tales.” Shurna had an exceptional collegiate career as a four-year starter for the Northwestern Wildcats from 2008-12. The 6-foot-9 forward was a three-time All-Big Ten Conference Selection and was named an honorable mention All-American in 2012 by the Associated Press. Shurna closed out his career

BTN/BTN2Go to carry Collins press conference live

At noon ET Tuesday, BTN/BTN2Go airs live coverage of Northwestern’s press conference introducing former Duke assistant basketball coach  Chris Collins as the school’s new men’s basketball coach. Dave Revsine and Shon Morris will host our coverage, which will include analysis from a variety of guests. “I’m so grateful … for the opportunity to lead the men’s basketball program at one of the premier universities in the world, to compete in the Big Ten Conference, and to do so in my hometown,” Collins said in a statement released by the school. “Northwestern University is a special place that strives for excellence in

Collins hire an anomaly among Big Ten coaching moves

Northwestern hiring of Duke assistant Chris Collins as the school’s new men’s basketball coach has created a buzz in college hoops circles. Many love his pedigree, youth and energy. Collins sizzles with potential. Do you smell it? Could the thirtysomething wunderkind lead the Wildcats out of the wilderness of basketball hopelessness and to their first NCAA tourney ever? Collins will be hailed a hoop savant if he does so. But the hire is ripe with risk. The chief one: Collins’ lack of head coaching experience. But, hey, what does Northwestern have to lose? Nothing, really, so I say, “Why not take
