B1G Hoops: Who would you pick to take the last shot?

OK, Big Ten Nation: If you could pick one player to take a last-second shot, who would it be? I polled seven Big Ten writers. And, here were their choices. Looks like the guy to pass to is … Michigan’s Nik Stauskas. Take a look at the results.

Week in review: Badgers continue to impress

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for my weekly 3-pointers, which is my own look back and forward in the world of Big Ten hoops. 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

Big Ten letters! Fans ask about McCaffery, bowls

OK, the mail has been steadily streaming in. That makes sense since there has been a lot going on these days, what with the bowl season, hoops heating up and … oh, yes, Fran McCaffery! Let’s dig in and address the best of your questions and comments. And, as usual, thanks for writing! You can keep the notes coming at the bottom of this post. My piece on Iowa coach Fran McCaffery and his behavior in the Wisconsin game elicited many responses. Check out a few of them here. I’ve responded to them below. Is this a blog or a

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. FIRST 31:58 OF REGULATION Points Possessions Efficiency Ohio State 38 51

Why do we love Aaron Craft? Watch these clips

Aaron Craft is as polarizing as any current college basketball player. It’s a known fact. But, if you watch him on a nightly basis, it’s really hard to understand how fans can dislike the four-year Ohio State point guard. His effort in Tuesday night’s overtime loss at No. 5 Michigan State is the perfect example. Craft made a trio of plays that, if nothing else, should make every basketball fan respect him.

No. 5 Michigan State (13-1, 2-0) hosts undefeated and No. 3 Ohio State (15-0, 2-0) in the programs’ first meeting as top five opponents, and the winner will remain perfect in the conference.
