What do we mean “wild?” Did you not see this shot, this ejection, and this OT thriller? Here’s what we cover on this Friday: Three teams on the rise, three teams sinking, and three things I learned this week. We also cover my three most impressive wins from the past seven days and the three biggest games coming up in the next week. Let’s do this. Three Stocks to Buy Minnesota. How ‘bout those

Big Ten Geeks: Better to be lucky than good?

Wednesday and Thursday brought some interesting results on the Big Ten hardwood. Let’s jump right in. After Michigan’s last road game, we opined that the Wolverines were fortunate to leave Minneapolis with a victory. As if to troll us, John Beilein’s team found an even luckier way to win a Big Ten road game, this time in Nebraska’s brand new Pinnacle Bank Arena. This one point victory included a half-court make at the halftime buzzer by Derrick Walton, then a point-blank miss at the end of regulation by Nebraska’s Leslee Smith. If either of those shots goes the way you’d

Photos: Wildcats unveil 'By the Player' uniform

Before the 2013-14 season, Northwestern told BTN.com the basketball team expected to debut an alternate uniform during Big Ten play. On Friday, the Wildcats released a new Under Armour “By The Player” uniform that they will wear Sunday vs. Illinois. And, let’s just say, the design is head-turning. See pictures of it in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Spartan Shooting

In the first epic clash of the conference season, Michigan State held serve at home against a relentless Ohio State team. Does this give the Spartans the inside track on the Big Ten title? Let’s dive in. In a lot of ways, this was a tough game to figure. MSU fans can point to the fact that their team led nearly the entire game, and that Michigan State’s ability to build a 17-point lead over the first 31:58 of game time is indicative of who is the better team.
