Ohio State invaded Evan Turner’s new home, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Thursday for the Big Ten tournament. Turner, who was traded to the Pacers at the NBA trade deadline, and the rest of his teammates were around the arena for much of the first session Thursday.

Big Ten tourney: Your team's points of emphasis

The Big Ten Tournament opens Thursday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. If this year’s Big Ten season is any indication of what’s to come this weekend, we are all in for one wild conference tournament. At this point in the year, teams have figured out both their strong points and weaknesses. And so, there isn’t a team in the Big Ten that doesn’t have some area that could be improved. With that said, I looked at each of the 12 teams and pinpointed those areas as a way of showing you what to watch for when each team takes

BTN experts discuss early signing day idea

On Tuesday’s #BTNLive show Mike Hall, Gerry DiNardo and Stanley Jackson had a length discussion examining the positives and negatives of an early signing period in college football. Right now, prospects can’t sign a letter of intent with any school until the first Wednesday in February, a day when football offices are busy and fans track every announcement. If an early signing period were to be established, high school players wouldn’t have to wait until February and could make their verbal commitments official at an earlier date. Watch DiNardo, a former coach, and Jackson, a former player, discuss the ramifications

Four Openers: Let's preview Thursday's games

The Big Ten tourney kicks off on Thursday in Indianapolis with four games. Teams seeded No. 5-12 will play. The bad news for these clubs: Just one team seeded lower than No. 4 ever has won the Big Ten tourney: No. 6 Iowa in 2001. So, odds are, none of these teams will be cutting down the nets on Sunday in Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Here’s a preview of each contest.

Big Ten Geeks: Regular season wrap and hardware

Well, it’s that time again—time to highlight all of our correct predictions, and whitewash all of the things we got wrong! See our Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller wrap up the regular season and hand out hardware in this post. Josh: I’ll start. Boy, what a great prediction it was to say Michigan had a bigger upside than Michigan State. That was a fairly unpopular call at the time, as most were more than willing to just hand the hardware to the Spartans. But the Wolverines just returned too many sophomore minutes to ignore. I really believe

Dienhart: Scouting the Big Ten tourney field

The Big Ten has revealed the bracket for its tourney, which kicks off on Thursday in Indianapolis. There are many interesting storylines, as Michigan looks for its first Big Ten tourney crown since the inaugural event in 1998. In fact, that’s the only time the Wolverines have won the tourney. The Big Ten tourney has belonged to the favorites over the years. Only three times has a team seeded No. 3 or lower won it: Michigan was a No. 4 in 1998; Iowa turned the trick as a No. 6 in 2001; Purdue won it all as a No. 3
