Dienhart: Four quick thoughts for Day 2

Thursday’s action will be difficult to top, as every game had drama. Friday will try to live up to that billing with four interesting tilts. Here is one though on each game.

Dienhart: Setting the stage for today's action

Well, that was a fun opening day of the Big Ten tourney, wasn’t it? Officially, there was a pair of upsets, although No. 9 Illinois’ win over No. 8 Indiana isn’t all that much of a stunner. Anyway, all eyes move to Friday’s quarterfinals. Get my Day 2 primers in this post.

B1G Tourney:'s all-Thursday team

If you’re a fan of college basketball, then you have to appreciate how entertaining Day One of the Big Ten men’s basketball tournament was. Four games were decided by a total of 24 points, with No. 11 Northwestern closing out Thursday’s session with a memorable 67-62 upset victory over No. 6 Iowa. With four games in the book, there were plenty of outstanding individual performances as well. senior writer Tom Dienhart and web editor Sean Merriman provide their all-Thursday team from Day One of the Big Ten Tournament.

B1G Tourney: Best sights & sounds from Day 1

Day One of the Big Ten Tournament is officially in the books. Just as the regular season was, the opening round of the tournament was anything but predictable. No. 11 Northwestern upset No. 6 Iowa, Ohio State and Minnesota recorded narrow wins over Purdue and Penn State,  respectively, and Illinois topped Indiana, who many believed could make a run in this tournament. With that said, let’s take a look back at the best sights and sounds from Day One of the Big Ten Tournament. [ MORE: Read all of our Big Ten tournament coverage ] Best win: No. 11 Northwestern

Big Ten Geeks: Northwestern shocks Iowa

Iowa’s tailspin to close the regular season has carried into the postseason in the form of a stunning loss to Northwestern, 67-62. As an adjective, “stunning” is overused as pertains to college basketball, but this result is deserving of the term. Not only did the Wildcats overcome some heavy odds to get the win (KenPom had the Hawkeyes as 86% favorites), Chris Collins’ team also did it in the most unlikely way. Northwestern scored a staggering 1.17 points per possession on red-hot shooting (57 percent on twos, 48 percent on threes). Let’s not forget – these Wildcats quite possibly have

Big Ten Geeks: Ohio State outlasts Purdue

In a game that featured three-fifths of the recently-selected Big Ten All-Defensive Team, it was indeed defense that ruled the day as Ohio State held off a stiff challenge from Purdue. This was a ragged affair, with both teams scoring under a point per trip and combining for 29 turnovers. The squads combined to shoot 3-for-24 from downtown, a number that stung even more for the Boilermakers when Terone Johnson’s would-be game-winning three at the buzzer came up short. There were stretches of this game where it felt like neither team could score. Ohio State was mostly driving to the hoop

Dienhart: Ohio State wins back-and-forth affair

Reigning Big Ten tourney champ Ohio State nipped Purdue, 63-61, in the second of four games Thursday in the Big Ten tourney. The fifth-seeded Buckeyes avoided becoming just the second team, and first since 1999, to lose to the lowest seed in event history.

(AP) LaQuinton Ross scored 19 points and Aaron Craft finished with 16 on Thursday, helping No. 24 Ohio State hang on for a 63-61 victory over Purdue in the Big Ten tournament. The win sent the defending tourney champs into Friday’s quarterfinals against fourth-seeded Nebraska. Purdue (15-17) didn’t make it easy on the fifth-seeded Buckeyes. A.J. Hammons finished with 15 points and nine rebounds, while senior Terone Johnson finished with 10 for the 12th seeded Boilermakers, who were eliminated after a seventh straight loss.
