Dienhart: Buckeyes continue to impress

This is the Buckeyes’ third Big Ten tourney title in the last four years and fourth in seven years. No Big Ten team has more. Ohio State’s march to this point is impressive when you consider they lost Jared Sullinger and William Buford off of a Final Four team from last season. To win today, it was all about defense. In fact, these are the two best defensive teams in the Big Ten. And it showed. How rough was it? The Buckeyes shot just 38.5 percent. From 3-point range, Ohio State was 1-of-16 (6.3 percent). Deshaun Thomas led all scorers

Buckeyes top Badgers for Big Ten tourney title

Aaron Craft had nine points and six rebounds, and LaQuinton Ross also delivered a couple of huge plays for Ohio State (26-7).

Big Ten Dunk Bracket: Thompson slam wins title

The votes are in, and BTN.com fans have picked Sam Thompson’s inbound alley-oop vs. Michigan State as the 2012-13 Dunk of the Year. The bracket opened with one dunk from every Big Ten team, which fans decided via polls, and it was seeded in accordance with the Big Ten tourney. Thompson’s athletic jam topped D.J.

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 3

Indiana and Wisconsin tipped things off on Saturday in a back-and-forth affair that did not go according to script. For one, Indiana was supposed to be the athletic offensive rebounding powerhouse, but it was Wisconsin that was crashing the offensive glass early, collecting  43 percent of its misses in the first half. Additionally, one would expect the Badgers and their miniscule turnover rate to be stingy with the giveaways, but turnovers plagued Bo Ryan’s team all game long. Wisconsin turned it over on 25 percent of its possessions, the second-highest mark for the season (MSU’s steamrolling of Wisconsin in East

Quick hit: Buckeyes come through in clutch

The Buckeyes overcame a sluggish first half to push past Michigan State and advance to the Big Ten tourney title game for a fifth season in a row and seventh time in eight years. Is there any doubt who is the best program in the Big Ten? Of course not. OSU hit just 34 percent of its shots in the first half but rebounded to knock down 52 percent in the second half. The Buckeyes had just two players in double-figures, but they were biggies. Aaron Craft had a game-high 20 points, while Deshaun Thomas notched 16. The other Buckeyes

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 2

Scouting matters. Have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t know your opponent, you’ll get sliced up. So credit Indiana for blowing up Illinois’ offense by stretching its defense well out to the perimeter in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. There was no space to breathe for Illinois’ shooters, and consequently just 6 of Illinois’ 27 field goal attempts were three-pointers in the first half. Now, it may not seem like a big deal to take the three-pointer away from a team shooting 29 percent on threes in conference play. And because no strategy comes
