Did You See This? Matta gets 'season's supply' of gum

What does one give Thad Matta as a birthday present? Gum, if you’re looking for a cheap gift that you know he’ll love and use. The Buckeye Nuthouse, the team’s official student section, sent Matta a season’s supply of Juicy Fruit for his 46th birthday last week. The Buckeye Nuthouse call the packages of gum a “season’s supply,” but the way Matta chews it, who knows how long it will last. Then again, Matta is a resourceful guy. Remember in 2007, when the coach dropped his gum to the floor and put it right back in his mouth? Watch the

How many Big Ten stars land on DeCourcy's lists?

Sporting News and BTN correspondent Mike DeCourcy has been busy compiling his top 10 position lists. With all the talent the Big Ten returns in 2013-14, it’s only fitting that the conference boasts its share of representatives. There’s eight players, to be exact, headlined by Michigan’s Mitch McGary, the No. 1 center, and Michigan State’s Gary Harris, the No. 1 shooting guard. POINT GUARD 3. Yogi Ferrell, Indiana “As a freshman, he was mostly expected to defer to all those veterans and only occasionally to upstage them, but he is an elite athlete and capable shooter who could experience a

Photo: Ohio State product Mike Conley on SI cover

Sure is nice to be Mike Conley, isn’t it? The Ohio State product has the Memphis Grizzlies one win away from the NBA Western Conference Finals – a run that many analysts feel puts the point guard on the verge of stardom. Sports Illustrated is a believer. Conley is featured on the cover of the magazine’s latest issue, with the headline: “True Grit.” According to the cover, the author, Lee Jenkins, spent a week with Conley and the Grizzlies to get an inside-look at the “NBA’s most intriguing postseason sleeper.” The sleeper, of course, refers to Memphis, which rallied from

Dienhart: Just say 'No' to divisions for hoops

At its spring meetings in Chicago, the Big Ten may discuss if it should have divisional play in basketball, as Rutgers and Maryland are set to join the league in 2014 to make the conference a 14-team entity. My advice: The Big Ten should take a lead from the other major conferences—ACC (12 teams), SEC (14), Pac-12 (12), old Big East (15), Atlantic 10 (16)–and not have divisional play. Yes, having divisions would make for some fun races down the stretch, as more teams likely would be jockeying for division championships. But in the SEC’s instance, it had some years

Ranking 2013 Big Ten/ACC Challenge games

It’s time to talk the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The event might be six-plus months away, but the 2013 matchups were released Wednesday afternoon. This year’s event is Dec. 3-4, with six games each night, and it features first-year ACC members Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. That last part, the addition of the three perennial Big East contenders, makes this event even more intriguing and far more daunting for the Big Ten. Not only does the ACC gain those three teams, but with 15 teams total, it gets to keep last year’s three-worst teams (Clemson, Virginia Tech & Wake Forest) out

NBA mock drafts: Where will these Big Ten stars go?

April 28 was the deadline for underclassmen to enter the NBA Draft, so the draft pool is now set. The big day comes June 27, but before that comes the draft lottery on May 21. The Big Ten saw five players leave early: Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas; Michigan’s Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr.; Indiana’s Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo. The conference also saw some star underclassmen stay as Gary Harris and Adreian Payne opted to return to Michigan State after contemplating jumping to the NBA. Think you know which Big Ten underclassmen will find the most success in the
