Clothes Call: Check out these Big Ten hoops changes

A new basketball season is upon us. Before the ball tips early next month, let’s take a look at some of the new uniform and court designs we’ll see around the Big Ten this season. A little warning, there aren’t nearly as many changes this year as there were last, and that goes for both the uniforms and the courts. Some good news: After talking to team representatives, it seems like we won’t see the adidas “Bleed Out” or Nike “Hyper Elite Road” uniforms that debuted last season. That doesn’t mean the companies won’t come out with some other new

Big Ten beat writers' preseason All-Big Ten teams, honors

Which Big Ten players will earn All-Big Ten honors in 2013-14? Who will take home the conference’s individual awards? recently polled one beat writer from every Big Ten team to seek out the answers. See their 2013-14 All-Big Ten Teams and superlative winners in this post. Here’s how this worked: Players were awarded three points for first-team distinction, two for second-team, and one for third-team. The numbers were added up, and the top 5 vote-getters, regardless of position, made first team, the next five second team, the next five third team. B1G MEDIA FIRST TEAM: Aaron Craft, Ohio State

Yarina: My All-Big Ten hoops Underrated Team

The exhibition basketball season is upon us (view our streaming schedule). Soon enough, the games will start to count. With that in mind, I thought I’d offer up my All-Big Ten Underrated Team. See my five guys in this post. Who did I miss? Tweet it my way, @BTNBrentYarina. [ MORE: Don’t forget about these guys in 2013-14 ] G: Shannon Scott, Jr., Ohio State. Aaron Craft gets all of the hype and pub, and rightly so. But his fellow guard is pretty good, too. Scott burst onto the scene last year, using his speed and quickness to develop into

Tim Frazier

They're back! Don't forget about these Big Ten players

Everyone knows about the talent the Big Ten returns to the hardwood this winter. You know, the Adreian Paynes, the Gary Harrises and the Aaron Crafts of the world. Not everyone, perhaps, is aware of the starpower the conference also welcomes back from season-ending injuries. Northwestern’s Drew Crawford (labrum), Penn State’s Tim Frazier (Achilles) and Wisconsin’s Josh Gasser (knee), to name a few, combined to play 14 games early last season. Gasser, actually, didn’t play a single game. Well, all three are ready to make up for lost time. Which one will have the best season? And which one will

Five B1G teams land in Coaches Top 25

The release of the USA Today coaches poll is another indicator of how close we are to beginning basketball season. I was not shocked to see five Big Ten teams ranked in the new poll: 2. Michigan State, 9. Michigan, 10. Ohio State, 21. Wisconsin and 24. Indiana. I thought Michigan State could have merited being the No. 1 team in the nation. Alas, Kentucky got that honor. But the Spartans are loaded with the likes of Gary Harris and Adreian Payne. They didn’t bypass the NBA draft to finish second. And don’t forget about Branden Dawson. Here are a

Penn State to wear Nike Hyper Elite uniforms

The next Nike “Hyper Elite” basketball uniforms have arrived. Thursday, Penn State unveiled its new uniform for the upcoming season. Iowa, another Big Ten Nike school, released its “Hyper Elite” uniform Wednesday. The Big Ten is familiar with this look, as every other Big Ten Nike school (Illinois, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State and Purdue) has rocked the Nike design in previous seasons.

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Michigan State

Four B1G programs appear in ESPN's "top two-sport schools"

It is no question that football and basketball rule the world of college athletics. Ohio State is considered a “top-notch” national powerhouse when it comes to college football, and the same can be said about Michigan State when talking about college hoops. But what schools are dominant in both sports? Our friends over at ESPN the Magazine recently published an article titled “The Undisputed Two-Sport Champ,” which uses a detailed formula to determine which college programs rule both football and basketball. The formula takes the following three factors into consideration: On-field success (which accounts for 50 percent of the final

Seth Davis excited to call hoops games for BTN

Come basketball season, Seth Davis is all over your television screen. This winter, that will include BTN/BTN2Go. Davis, along with former “Flyin’ Illini” star Stephen Bardo, highlights the new additions to BTN’s 2013-14 hoops talent roster. The SI and CBS Sports personality will serve as a game analyst and hopes to also find the time to do some studio work. [ MORE: Follow @SethDavisHoops on Twitter! ] What brought Davis to BTN? “First of all, the BTN is terrific,” he said. “I’m a fan. I watch it. It’s high quality production and a high quality product.” Most of all, Davis
