Ranking games: Two Iowa tests top the list

We begin to head down the backstretch of the season, as my friends at Big Ten Geeks pointed out earlier this week. If you are like me, getting a clean read on the season makes you as confused as ever. But, don’t worry. Things will begin to crystallize … I think. Here’s my ranking of this week’s men’s basketball games. 1. Michigan at Iowa, Sat., Feb. 8. This is the game of week, ladies and gentlemen.

Big Ten Geeks: Halfway Home

We’re now at the official halfway point of the conference season, so it seems an appropriate time to glance at player stats. We’ve already thrown around some Big Ten POY discussion, but we have enough data now that we can start to look a little deeper. Courtesy of statsheet.com, the following table contains the conference-only numbers for players that meet the following criteria: minute percentage above 60 percent, possession percentage above 22 percent, offensive rating above 100. These are the best of the best, the efficient possession-consumers, at least during the first half of Big Ten play. Player Poss% Ortg

How about these wild Big Ten finishes?

Both of the Big Ten’s early Saturday games came down to the wire and were won by the visitor by one point following last-second misses from the home team.

Then, Minnesota had a couple chances to win it at the buzzer in its loss vs. Northwestern. Watch the finishes in this post. VIDEO: How about those @NUMensBball & @OhioStateHoops finishes today?!

Video: Shannon Scott goes 5-hole on Frank Kaminsky

No doubt about it, Shannon Scott has struggled during Ohio State’s recent Big Ten slide. The junior guard came off the bench for the first time this season Saturday at Wisconsin, and he just so happened to help lead the Buckeyes to a 59-58 road win. Oh, and he also tallied one of the best assists you’ll see all season. Let’s just say, Scott caught Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky by surprise on his dime to Trey McDonald. Watch the highlight pass in this post. VIDEO: #B1G assist of the year? Shannon Scott goes 5-hole, Trey McDonald throws it down. WATCH –

Big Ten Mailbag: Is Michigan basketball for real?

It’s time for me to reach into my mail bag to answer your pressing questions. Basketball is on your mind. And that’s understandable, as we are in the heart of the season as I type this.
