Terone Johnson shines, Purdue routs Northwestern

Terone Johnson scored 22 points to help Purdue defeat Northwestern 74-43 on Sunday night and snap a three-game losing streak. D.J. Byrd scored 13 points and Ronnie Johnson and Rapheal Davis added 10 each for the Boilermakers (13-14, 6-8 Big Ten), who shot 53 percent from the field and outrebounded the Wildcats 48-23.

Team up: Ranking football & hoops coaching combos

Fun item from esteemed ex-colleague David Fox of Athlon Sports on the top football/basketball coaching tandems in the nation. Topping the list: Ohio State’s duo of Thad Matta and Urban Meyer. Michigan’s duo of Brady Hoke and John Beilein is No. 2 in the nation, according to Athlon. Here is how Athlon ranks the Big Ten tandems. Hard to argue with Fox putting Matta and Meyer on top. Matta has taken Ohio State to two Final Fours, three Big Ten tourney titles and a share of five regular-season crowns. Meyer won two national titles at Florida and debuted with a

Big Ten Geeks: The best B1G defense in a decade?

Wisconsin held Northwestern to a paltry 0.74 points per possession in one of the most methodical blowouts you’ll ever see. The Wildcats were just consistently outclassed, as the Badgers steadily built their lead until it had swelled to the final 28-point margin. Northwestern’s lowly output helped Wisconsin nudge its in-conference defensive efficiency down to 0.901 points per trip. If the Badgers can keep that number at that level, it would be the Big Ten’s lowest ever in the tempo-free era (since 2002-03). The conference has seen some fantastic defensive squads over those ten-plus seasons, but none of them were able

Jared Berggren

No. 17 Wisconsin stifles Northwestern, 69-41

Jared Berggren and Ben Brust each scored 12 points, and No. 19 Wisconsin shut down Northwestern 69-41 on Wednesday night for its fifth win in six games. The balanced Badgers (19-8, 10-4 Big Ten) had five players with at least eight points and held the Wildcats to 29-percent shooting during a very businesslike performance. Brust, who missed the last two days of practice with a sore left knee, and Berggren also had eight rebounds apiece as Wisconsin enjoyed a 47-22 edge on the boards. Reggie Hearn scored 13 for Northwestern (13-14, 4-10), which has dropped four in a row and

Northwestern puts #B1GCats on tonight's game ball

It’s Social Media Night for Wednesday’s No. 17 Wisconsin-Northwestern game at Welsh-Ryan Arena. In honor of the night, the game ball will include Northwestern’s hash tag of choice, #B1GCATS, the scoreboard will read “#B1GCATS” and “#BADGERS,” and each Wildcat will have his personal Twitter account on the back of his shooting shirt. [ NUSports.com: Northwestern to host Social Media Night Wednesday ] Also, in the spirit of social media, Northwestern invited proud alum and ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell to the festivities. Rovell, according to the school, will take part in the pregame “Standing Out in the Digital Crowd”

Big Ten Geeks: Say Hello to your champs

Indiana pulled out a huge road win over Michigan State, thanks largely to the all-around heroics of Victor Oladipo. The surging national player of the year contender made things happen all over the court. On the offensive end, Oladipo was about as efficient as it gets, attacking the tin (he went six for seven on dunks and layups, ridiculous numbers for a guard) while turning it over only once. [ RELATED: Big Ten Player of the Year: Burke or Oladipo? ] Scoring 19 points on 11 shots is impressive enough, but Oladipo’s defensive effort was even better. He finished with

Big Ten Geeks: Getting ready for the Dance

We’re only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday, and there’s only a handful of games left for teams to pick up signature wins. This weekend, some did, and some didn’t. Iowa picked up an important win over Minnesota on Saturday, rallying from an early 16-point deficit to an impressive 21-point win. And frankly, this game was over about midway through the second half. The turning point came when Fran McCaffrey deployed a zone defense, which flummoxed the Gopher attack. This isn’t the first time that Minnesota has looked confused against a zone—Northwestern sprung the upset against the Gophers by
