Badgers, Jackson beat buzzer, Penn State

Traevon Jackson made a contested 3-pointer at the buzzer and finished with 15 points, and No. 22 Wisconsin survived an upset scare from Penn State with a 63-60 win Sunday in its regular-season finale. The Badgers (21-10, 12-6 Big Ten) went the length of the court with less than 4 seconds left. Jackson pulled up at the wing and made the 3 over the outstretched arm of Kevin Montminy. Officials upheld the basket on the review, and anxious fans at the Jordan Center let out a collective sigh of disappointment. Jermaine Marshall finished with 23 points for Penn State (10-20,

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan State outruns Wisconsin

In what amounted to an elimination game for a potentially shared Big Ten title, Michigan State steamrolled Wisconsin by 15 points. This game was certainly no work of art, as both teams struggled mightily to score in the half court set. The defense had the upper hand at both ends of the court, but the difference came in the form of Wisconsin live-ball turnovers. When the Spartans got steals, they were able to score in transition. Otherwise, the Badgers played their typical shut down defense–Michigan State scored only 0.77 points per trip in possessions that did not follow a steal.

Big Ten Geeks: Buckeyes break open title race

Ohio State shook up the Big Ten title race with an impressive victory at Indiana. This one was all about the Buckeyes’ defense, spearheaded by Aaron Craft and Shannon Scott, as they held the Hoosiers to their second-lowest output of the season (Indiana actually scored slightly worse in the win at Iowa, albeit in a lot more possessions). The lifeblood of the Hoosiers’ offense–frequent trips to the foul line–was cut off by the foul-averse defense we’ve come to expect from Thad Matta’s teams, and Indiana shot a lowly 39 percent on twos to boot (thanks in no small part to

Big Ten Geeks: Bricks, a whole lot of bricks

It was a terrible shooting weekend for the title contenders. Collectively, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Michigan were 14 for 76 from three this weekend. Two of those teams nonetheless found a way to win. Thanks to Trey Burke’s rip of Keith Appling in the final minute of play, Michigan was able to defend its home court against the Spartans. Although this was a hard fought game, neither team played particularly well on the offensive end. Michigan missed all 12 of its three-point attempts, while Michigan State managed to make just 41 percent of its two-pointers. Credit the defense if
