Sunday men's hoops roundup: Charlotte nips Michigan

There was a quartet of Big Ten men’s basketball games on Sunday. Nebraska took down Georgia, Penn State walloped Longwood, Purdue topped Siena and Michigan fell to Charlotte in the Puerto Rice Tip-Off title game. Catch up on all the day’s scores and stats in this post. CHARLOTTE 63, MICHIGAN 61 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY (AP) Nik Stauskas scored a game-high 20 points, but Terrence Williams put back his own miss with 0.4 seconds left, giving Charlotte a stunning 63-61 victory over No. 14 Michigan on Sunday night in the championship game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

A look at early basketball signing classes

The early basketball signing period started last Wednesday, Nov. 13, and ends today. The Big Ten had a decent haul. According to Scout.com, Ohio State (No. 6) and Indiana (No. 21) are the lone league schools to rank among the Top 25 classes in the nation. But there still will be a spring signing period, so these classes can change. There were just two five-star signees, and both inked with Ohio State: 6-4 off-guard D’Angelo Russell and 6-7 small forward Keita Bates-Diop. There were seven four-star signees. Russell is the highest-rated Big Ten prospect, coming in at No. 16 in

The 103 points marked the first time the Badgers eclipsed 100 points since December 1995. But the bigger story was Frank Kaminsky, who scored a team single-game record 43. Catch up on all of Tuesday’s action in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Standing Tall

The Big Ten suffered its first losses over the past couple nights, and we learned just a little bit more about the shape of this conference. Let’s dive in. In a formula that might become common this season, Illinois struggled to score over Valparaiso’s length but did enough on defense to secure the victory. After facing two decidedly smaller teams to open the season, Illinois had trouble converting over Valpo’s big and experienced frontline. In fact, the Illini’s 35.6 effective field goal percentage is the lowest mark of the John Groce era, and last season’s team wasn’t exactly a collection

Top moments from tonight's B1G hoops action

Both Illinois and Purdue notched impressive early season wins Wednesday night. Purdue blew out Central Connecticut 109-73, while Illinois edged out Valparaiso, 64-52. In the third Big Ten game of the evening, Penn State fell to Bucknell, 80-90. Get game recaps, stats and video highlights from all three games in this post. BUCKNELL 90, PENN STATE 80 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY (AP) Steven Kaspar scored 25 points and Cameron Ayers added 19 as Bucknell defeated Penn State 90-80 in a wild, back-and-forth game between two nearby Pennsylvania rivals Wednesday night. Penn State (1-1), led by D.J. Newbill (18),

Big Ten Geeks: Spartans make a statement

In the night’s top matchup, Michigan State ran out to an early 10-0 lead against a young Kentucky team and did just enough the rest of the way to pick up a very big win. It was a tale of two halves, as the Spartans made the Wildcats look slow and disorganized over the first 20 minutes. Wish I could say MSU's fastbreaking wing attack from '05 is back, but really UK just terrible at getting back on defense. — Josh and Mike (@bigtengeeks) November 13, 2013 Defensively, Michigan State’s man-to-man defense was severely packed in, making it look almost

Top 10 Plays from B1G exhibition games

Can you feel it ladies and gentlemen? College basketball is officially here. The Big Ten basketball regular season is scheduled to kick off Friday night with a full-slate of action. But let’s not forget how entertaining the past two weeks of exhibition hoops have been. We have seen everything from dunks, to blocks to a freshman guard scoring seven points in a span of 37 seconds. With that said, let’s go ahead and count down the top 10 plays from this year’s Big Ten exhibition games. [ MORE: BTN.com Big Ten hoops mock draft ] 10. Michigan freshman guard Derrick

Big Ten Geeks: Penn State 2013-14 Preview

It was a lost season for Penn State after Tim Frazier went down with an injury. Can the Nittany Lions make up for lost time in Frazier’s final go-round? On the perimeter, this edition of the Nittany Lions should be able to compete with anybody. Tim Frazier returns from a ruptured Achilles, and he’s a legitimate all-conference player when healthy. D.J. Newbill struggled with his efficiency last season, but he should fare much better in a reduced role. Allen Roberts was asked to do too much at Miami (OH), but a swap of usage for efficiency (as is usually seen with
