Power Rankings: Hoosiers make statement

Fresh off an impressive week that included a rout at rival Purdue and an eight-point win over then-No. 1 Michigan, Indiana reclaims the top spot in my weekly Power Rankings. Where does your team land on my latest list? Find out in this post. Oh, and feel free to send me your thoughts, either in the comment box at the bottom of the post or on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina).

Buckeyes to don Nike Hyper Elite uniform Tuesday

Michigan State wore its Nike Hyper Elite uniform last month at Indiana. Tuesday night, Ohio State will debut its version of the Nike uniform at rival Michigan. [ RELATED: Michigan to wear special adidas uniform Tuesday ] Based on the responses from fans about Michigan State’s uniform, we should expect a mixed reaction Tuesday. The good news: Nike outfits seven Big Ten schools, however it’s reported these are the only two schools that will sport the logo-ed look. It’s a new design, but it’s also one Nike has tried before – and to negative press. Remember this 1999-2000 North Carolina

Big Ten Geeks: Saturday Night Showdown

Indiana reclaimed the top spot in the polls after it held off Michigan in Bloomington. The Hoosiers lit up the Wolverines’ defense to the tune of 1.17 points per possession, the highest mark allowed so far this season by John Beilein’s team. And the reality it that it could have been much worse, as careless turnovers were about the only thing that slowed down the IU offense. Michigan had the opposite problem—while it took care of the ball by only committing 8 turnovers in a 69 possession game, the Wolverines were atypically inaccurate on both twos (49 percent) and threes

Big Ten Geeks: Checking Ourselves

We’re approximately at the midway point of the conference schedule, so it’s a logical time to check in our preseason predictions. Were we close?

Halfway home: My All-Big Ten hoops teams

With every Big Ten team having played at least nine conference games, we’ve reached the midway point of the Big Ten season. It’s been a fantastic race thus far, with Indiana one game ahead of the pace, and it should only get better. Halfway home, it’s a good time to consider early All-Big Ten teams. See my teams in this post. For the record, I factored in both nonconference and conference play, with a bigger emphasis on the latter, of course.

'The Journey' profiles Purdue's Johnson brothers

On Saturday night’s “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013,” we put the spotlight on Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas, Purdue’s Johnson brothers and Wisconsin’s new point guards. In this clip, you get a taste for all three of the latest episode’s storylines. Best of all: We have family video of Terone and Ronnie Johnson as youngsters, and it’s nothing short of cute. Check out the Johnson’s family footage from 1993 in this video. Did you miss the debut of the latest episode? We’re airing it three times Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. ET, 8 and 11.

No. 11 Ohio State holds off Nebraska, 63-56

Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 21 points and No. 11 Ohio State held off a late Nebraska surge for a 63-56 victory Saturday night. Ohio State (17-4, 7-2 Big Ten) led 53-38 after a pair of free throws by Aaron Craft with 9:05 left. Nebraska (11-12, 2-8) then made its comeback, outscoring the Buckeyes 15-5 and cutting the lead to 58-53 on David Rivers‘ free throws with 2:40 remaining. Following an Ohio State miss, Nebraska’s Brandon Ubel and Andre Almeida each missed shots at the rim and Ubel missed a 3-point attempt. Craft hit a pair of free throws with 56

Deshaun Thomas

Big Ten Geeks: Defense and Deshaun

In a matchup of the Big Ten’s two best defenses, it was Ohio State that prevailed with a nine-point home victory over Wisconsin. Both of these teams rely on good old fashioned B1G defense: make you miss (without fouling), then secure the carom. Turnovers are optional. True to form, both defenses controlled the glass at their respective ends, and neither team got to the foul line on a regular basis. In fact, for the first time in Bo Ryan’s 12 seasons, the Badgers failed to earn a single free throw. This is a rare occurrence, to be sure, but Wisconsin’s

'Journey' features Thomas, Purdue & Wisconsin guards

Last week “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013” took you inside the Iowa Hawkeyes moving remembrance of former player Chris Street (watch the moment in this post). This week, the show explores how Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer, has matured on and off the court. The show debuts Saturday at 9 p.m. ET after the Ohio State-Nebraska game. This week’s show also profiles the relationship between Purdue’s Terone Johnson and his younger brother Ronnie, who have combined to help the Boilermakers jump out to a 4-3 Big Ten record. Also, we head to Madison to meet George Marshall and

No freebies: OSU keeps UW off charity stripe in win

Deshaun Thomas scored 25 points, including 10 during a game-breaking 15-0 second-half run, to lead No. 11 Ohio State past Wisconsin 58-49 on Tuesday night. The leading scorer in the Big Ten, Thomas took over the game as both teams tried to gain leverage in a typically physical matchup between them. The physicality was there again, however Wisconsin failed to attempt a free throw for the first time in Bo Ryan’s tenure in Madison (390 games). The victory moved Ohio State (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten) into third place in the Big Ten and dropped Wisconsin (14-7, 5-3) two games off
