Did You See This? Crean, Painter star in commercial

Here’s something well worth your time. It’s a new Infiniti commercial that features ESPN’s Bill Raftery, Indiana’s Tom Crean, Purdue’s Matt Painter and Butler’s Brad Stephens as teammates in a Best Ball Scramble. Thing is, the rivals on the hardwood have a hard time understanding that they’re on the same team. It’s all in good fun, of course. Among the highlights: Crean steps on Painter’s ball in the rough and says, “Ohh, tough lie!” And Painter throws his ball at Crean’s while he’s teeing off, prompting Crean to say, “So, that’s how it’s going to be today?” The commercial is one

Big Ten Geeks: Here come the Hawkeyes

On Saturday, Iowa defended its home court with a win over Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes raced out to a 30-10 lead before the Badgers finally got something going on offense, though I think that early start for Wisconsin overshadows what kind of game this really was. Both offenses scored over a point per possession, which is a good sign for this Iowa offense that had been struggling somewhat in conference play. Most of the problem can be traced to some awful outside shooting as Iowa has struggled to replace the shooting acumen of Matt Gatens. And Saturday was no different, as

Big Ten Geeks: Badgers Shock Indiana

Wisconsin now owns the most impressive result in all of college basketball after its five point win at Indiana. During the Badgers’ nonconference struggles, we Geeks wondered what was up with Wisconsin’s defense. While the Badgers were still stifling the offense of many a cupcake, they were getting lit up (in a relative sense) against tournament-level teams. Well, it seems Bo Ryan’s squad has figured things out. Prior to last night, Indiana had not scored lower than 1.12 points per possession in Assembly Hall; Wisconsin held the Hoosiers below a point per trip. A large part of that dominance stemmed
