Big Ten Geeks: Getting Defensive

We sit mere days away from Big Ten play, so it seems a proper time to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the conference’s defenses. Possibly the best way to do that is through detailed shot data. The best defenses will limit open threes and shots at the rim while forcing opponents to take low value two-point jumpers. Courtesy of Hoop-Math, the following table contains defensive shot data for the teams in the Big Ten, sorted from fewest shots allowed at the rim to most shots allowed at the rim.

Yarina: My All-Big Ten Most Improved Team

With the nonconference season almost behind us and the conference season just a week away, it’s a good time to consider the Big Ten’s most improved players. There’s plenty of players to choose from, that’s for sure. See who made the cut for my all-improved team in this post. Editor’s note: This list only considers players who played in the Big Ten last year, meaning the Rayvonte Rices and Terran Petteways of the world aren’t eligible. G: Yogi Ferrell, Indiana. A season ago, Ferrell was a true freshman distributor who took a back seat to Indiana’s four 1,000-point scorers. He

Big Ten Geeks: Illinois, Ohio State win thrillers

The headliner to the Big Ten’s wild weekend was Ohio State’s improbable comeback over Notre Dame. The Irish held an 8-point lead with under a minute to play, but OSU’s frenzied press led to four Notre Dame turnovers, which fueled a 14-3 Buckeye run. It was an unreal comeback, so hopefully you saw it, and weren’t like, trying to get a toddler to go to sleep. That would have been unfortunate. Wow! @OhioStateHoops goes on a 14-3 run over the last 48 seconds and gets the win. This guy was incredible tonight. — Sean Merriman (@BTNSean) December 22, 2013

Sam Thompson did it again. Twice! The Buckeyes’ talented junior forward has put together quite the impressive highlight reel on eye-popping alley-oops this season.
