Three-Pointers: Breaking down the week in hoops

It’s time for my weekly Three-Pointers and I’m firing shots as quickly as I can grab a basketball, giving you a quick look back and forward in the Big Ten. From Michigan State’s tough road loss at Illinois to the steady play of the Big Ten’s big men, it’s been another busy seven days of hoops. There are three men’s games on Saturday, including Indiana at Purdue at 7 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go. Then there are three more Sunday games, including Minnesota at Nebraska (1 p.m.) and Northwestern at Illinois (3 p.m.). Both games are on BTN and BTN2Go, too.

Big Ten Geeks: Digging Themselves a Hole

Michigan picked up a nice home win over Indiana that was, depending on your point-of-view, either not as close as or a lot closer than the final margin suggests. John Beilein’s team jumped out to a big early lead, which peaked at 20 points before the Hoosiers got going. Indiana then took momentum into halftime and maintained it out of the break. The Hoosiers were able to whittle the difference down to two points on multiple occasions, but they just couldn’t get over the hump. Michigan then finished with a flurry to arrive at the final 12-point margin. This breakdown of

Clothes Call: Dialing up Big Ten designs

Big Ten schools often roll out interesting changes to team uniform and equipment design, and it most definitely strikes a chord with fans from all schools. So we launched Big Ten Clothes Call, our home for news on crazy theoretical helmet ideas, throwback uniforms, special football jerseys, unique basketball jerseys, and plenty more like this video from a few seasons ago on the evolution of Illinois’ uniforms. And while we keep our eyes out for the interesting uniform news, come tell us if you see something cool. Further down in this post’s Brent Yarina looks at how Big Ten

Big Ten Geeks: In the 40s

Illinois picked up a much needed home victory over Michigan State, and Illini fans would probably appreciate if the discussion ended right there. It was about as ugly as basketball can get, with turnovers and missed shots aplenty. The Spartans had more missed shots than points, and their 26.7 effective field goal percentage represented the program’s worst shooting night in at least 15 seasons (I only have eFG data back to 1997-98). To top it all off, conference player of the year contender Draymond Green, who hadn’t played anyway much due to foul trouble, left the game late with an

Top 10 Big Ten dunks of 2011-12 season

LeBron James’ ridiculous dunk against Chicago on Sunday and Blake Griffin’s silly slam against Oklahoma City on Monday got us thinking about the best dunks of the 2011-12 Big Ten season. Rodney Williams, Victor Oladipo and Sam Thompson’s highlights immediately come to mind, but there have been so many other memorable dunks. See my top 10 slams in this post. Did I forget a dunk?
