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

It’s been a long time coming, and with Penn State’s upset of then-No. 4 Michigan, coupled with Northwestern’s continued struggles, the Nittany Lions have broken out of the cellar in my latest Power Rankings. Where does your team land? Find out in this post. Oh, and feel free to send me your thoughts, either in the comment box in this post or on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina).

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

Minnesota trounces Penn State on Senior Day

Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Minnesota held Penn State scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the game to cruise to a 73-44 victory on Saturday. Julian Welch had 10 points and seven assists and Rodney Williams had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Gophers (20-9, 8-8 Big Ten), who didn’t let the Nittany Lions spoil their Senior Day. [ VIDEO: Minnesota honors Mbakwe, seniors ] D.J. Newbill scored 15 points for Penn State (9-19, 1-15) but made just 2 of 16 field goals, and the Lions weren’t able to sneak up on Minnesota

Big Ten Geeks: Penn State springs the upset of the season

With 10:39 to play in the Bryce Jordan Center, Michigan’s Jon Horford finished an easy dunk off an inbounds play to put Penn State down 15 points. At that very moment, KenPom’s win probability gave the Wolverines a 99.3 percent chance of leaving town with the victory. In other words, given the time, score, and team qualities, you’d expect a game replayed 150 times from that exact situation to end with Michigan losing only once. Then Jermaine Marshall happened. The 6-4 junior took over the game, scoring 16 points the rest of the way to spearhead an incredible offensive finish

The 60-minute special, Inside the Selection Process, airs at 9 p.m. ET Monday. Shaheen, former NCAA executive vice president of Championships and Alliances, is credited with having a significant impact on the tournament’s success. He’ll talk about such things as how the committee is assembled, how it handles multiple teams from one conference, and

Penn State Celebration

Video: Watch Penn State fans storm the court

The Nittany Lions could only hear about how they were playing hard every game for so long. Those “moral victories” that came in close losing efforts meant nothing if they didn’t get a win. On Wednesday night, Penn State, which entered the game 0-14 in the Big Ten, finally had reason to celebrate. That’s right, the Nittany Lions stunned No. 4 Michigan, 84-78. And, as expected for such an occasion, the fans stormed the court. Watch the celebration here. What a scene! To be honest, it’s hard not to feel good for Pat Chambers, his players and the school’s fan
