Big Ten Geeks: Inside Thursday's Sweet 16 battles

As expected, four Big Ten teams have advanced to the Sweet 16, with play resuming Thursday night. Let’s take a close look at tomorrow’s matchups (Ohio State vs. Arizona; Indiana vs. Syracuse). On Thursday, we’ll preview Friday’s regional semifinals (Michigan State vs. Michigan vs. Kansas).

That leaves the winner of this crucial game as the favorite to reach the

Dienhart: Big Ten Sweet 16 previews

The dust has cleared and only 16 teams are standing in the NCAA tourney—four of them are Big Ten schools. The league more than acquitted itself in the opening three rounds of the Big Dance, forging a 10-3 mark from the seven teams that competed. No. 5 Wisconsin was the only Big Ten team that failed to win a game, falling to Ole Miss. No. 11 Minnesota (UCLA) and No. 7 Illinois (Colorado) each won a game before falling to Florida and Miami (Fla.), respectively, in the third round. No. 1 Indiana, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan State

5 alive: Ranking top Big Ten duos still in action

Five Big Ten teams remain alive in the postseason. There’s Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney, and there’s Iowa in the NIT quarterfinals. All five teams – like most teams in action this time of year – boast terrific 1-2 punches. See how I rank the Big Ten’s remaining duos in this post. [ FACEBOOK POLL: Which B1G team still alive in the postseason has the best duo? ] 1. Indiana’s Victor Oladipo & Cody Zeller – Let’s see, this tandem includes two All-Big Ten first-teamers and one Naismith Award finalist

Aaron Craft already was a big deal prior to Sunday’s NCAA tourney performance against Iowa State. Add the late momentum-shifting charge and game-winning buzzer-beater to his record, and we’re dealing with a guy approaching icon status. Heck, Thad Matta wants a statue of Craft erected outside the arena. And local children must agree, because they’re building snowmen of Craft. @AaronCraftFans Crafty the Snowman.

Big Ten stars in action-packed tourney games

There were big shots (Aaron Craft), heartache (Illinois), disappointment (Wisconsin) and jubilation (Indiana) all wrapped into one massive second- and third-round of the NCAA tourney. The Big Ten landed seven teams in the Big Dance—and four survived to play in the Sweet 16—No. 1 Indiana, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan State, No. 4 Michigan. No other league has as many teams, further validation of the Big Ten’s prowess as the conference pursues its first national crown since 1999-2000 when Michigan State cut down the nets. But before we jump ahead to a Sweet 16, let’s look back at what

Big Ten Geeks: Weekend at Tourney's

When the dust settled on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the Big Ten had four teams standing in the Sweet Sixteen. Here are some scattered thoughts on the action, bullet-point style: Wisconsin lost exactly the way I said it would—by going cold from long range. This is a perimeter-oriented team that does not shoot all that well from the perimeter, and that means that it’s bound to go ice cold at least once every few games. Unfortunately, that came in the very first round of the Tournament. I know Marshall Henderson is outspoken and scored a lot of

Where does Big Ten start rank in NCAA history?

With a 10-3 record and four teams advancing to the Sweet 16, how did the Big Ten’s start to the NCAA tourney compare to the best in NCAA history? That’s a great question, and BTN.com turned to its resident statistician, Chris Antonacci, for the answer. See the numbers in this post. Before we get to the numbers, consider this: The Big Ten was one win away from tying the NCAA records – both held by the Big East in 2009 – for most wins in the Rounds of 64 and 32 (11) and most Sweet 16 teams (5). Big Ten,

Quick Hit: Craft hits incredible winner

Ohio State is headed to its fourth straight Sweet 16, the program’s longest streak and the nation’s longest current streak. How did it get there? Simple: Aaron Craft. The junior hit a buzzer-beating trey to make up for a trio of late missed free throws and send Ohio State past Iowa State, 78-75.
