Nike unveils new Michigan State, Ohio State alternates

Nike is unveiling a new basketball uniform design, and like last year when it introduced those (awful) logo-centric uniforms, Michigan State and Ohio State have been selected to wear the new threads. Don’t worry, these new “Hyper Elite Dominance” uniforms are far better than their predecessor. See the uniforms in this post.

Dienhart: My first-half Big Ten awards

The arrival of the Super Bowl means many things to many people. Ro-tel and Velveeta dip … the end of the most wonderful time of the year … spring is approaching. For me, it means we basically are at the halfway point of the Big Ten hoop season. And I have some questions—and answers–as we start to head down the backstretch. So, let’s hand it off to the Big Ten Answer Man. [ MORE: View the latest Big Ten basketball standings ] Q: What are the best games in the second half of the season? A: Oh, there are several

Big Ten Geeks: Spartans Will

Michigan State pulled out an impressive overtime win at Iowa despite the continued absence of Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson. The gritty win was all about defense for the Spartans, as they held one of the nation’s top offenses to 1.01 points per trip at home. Iowa posted a lowly 40.6 effective field goal percentage, and it was entirely due to poor jump-shooting (data courtesy of Hoop-Math). IOWA % of Shots FG% At Rim 31.2 66.7 2pt Jumpers 43.8 23.8 3pt Shots 25.0 25.0 The Hawkeyes’ refusal to shoot the three can sometimes hold this offense back, and this was

Yarina: State of Big Ten hoops address

President Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union Address tonight. That being the case, I thought I’d do something super-cheesy and address the state of each Big Ten men’s basketball team. See my take on all 12 teams in this post. [ MORE: Check out Stephen Bardo’s latest Big Ten Power Rankings ] Editor’s note: Team records are through January 27 action. ILLINOIS (2-6) It’s hard to be successful when the shots aren’t falling, and the Illini can’t be accused of torching any nets across the Big Ten. How bad has it gotten? Illinois shoots 36.2 percent in

Ranking the Games: Michigan State at Iowa, and then....

The best Big Ten game this week is the first one, tonight in Iowa City when Michigan State visits Iowa. Each team is looking for a win to keep pace with Big Ten leader Michigan. The Wolverines beat each team last week, adding to the sense of urgency for both clubs. Here is my ranking of this week’s action. [ MORE: Check out Stephen Bardo’s latest Big Ten Power Rankings ] 1.
