Review & preview: Big Ten stocks rise & fall

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for Three-Pointers, a chance to take the temperature of the Big Ten in several different areas. It’s a good time to be John Beilein and Michigan. Conversely, it’s not such a good time to be Tom Crean and Indiana. Weekend schedules are here with TV info, latest men’s basketball standings are over here and the season’s top plays can be seen right here. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Michigan.

Big Ten Geeks: Hoosier collapse

On Wednesday night, Penn State stamped out any remaining Indiana tournament hopes with a shocking road upset. The Hoosiers seemingly had this game in hand the entire way, and it felt all but over when Indiana held an 11-point lead with three minutes remaining. Somehow, the Nittany Lions roared back, and they took their first lead of the entire game on a Tim Frazier layup with six seconds remaining. Yogi Ferrell missed a tough jumper at the horn, and the upset was complete. Just how crazy was that finish? Using KenPom’s win probabilities, Penn State had just a 0.2 percent chance

Read Thursday's Big Ten headlines roundup

Indiana’s strange and bizarre season took another unexpected and maddening turn last night with a home loss to last-place Penn State. How can this IU team beat top-10 squads like Wisconsin and Michigan in Bloomington, and then lose to the likes of the Nittany Lions and Northwestern at home? It’s safe to say, panic has set in for Indiana. This team just can’t shoot. And the turnover issues persist. The Hoosiers led by seven with two minutes to play. And they failed to score a basket in the final 5:16. It didn’t help that IU turned the ball over three

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan wins in Columbus

Michigan came up with big road win over Ohio State thanks to a second-half surge. The Buckeyes seemed to be in control of this game, as they led for nearly all of the game’s first 29 minutes, but the Wolverines then ripped off a 12-0 run fueled by Aaron Craft turnovers and Michigan layups to take a lead they would not relinquish. Ohio State’s tough interior defense set the tone in the first half, but the explosive nature of the Wolverines’ offense was on full display late in the game. First Half Points Per Possession Second Half Points Per Possession

Photo: Ohio State game program ignores letter 'M'

For Ohio State, when it plays rival Michigan, the letter “M” doesn’t exist. So, it should come as no surprise that in the program for Tuesday night’s Michigan at Ohio State game the letter “M” was ignored. Not only that, it referred to Michigan as “The School Up North.” Check out a photo of it in this post.

Just noticed #Buckeyes forgot

Photo: First look at Ohio State's new alternate uniform

Michigan State opened the month in its new Nike “Hyper Elite Dominance” uniform, and it’s Ohio State’s turn Tuesday night. The Buckeyes saved their new design, which Nike created to draw on past successes for motivation, for bitter rival Michigan. If you remember, Ohio State wore this Nike alternate last season at Michigan. https://twitter.com/LindLGHL/status/433401917658501120 It’s interesting that the Buckeyes are in gray shorts, because the picture Nike tweeted late last month showed a gray jersey and scarlet shorts. According to @LindLGHL‘s sources, the Buckeyes may go with an all-scarlet look March 2 at Indiana. That’s a good call. The unnatural multicolored
