TheBigLead.com’s Jason McIntyre posted his list of the 50 best players in college basketball for the 2012-2013 season Friday, and Indiana rising sophomore Cody Zeller topped the list. Zeller beat out highly touted UCLA recruit Shabazz Muhammad for the No. 1 spot and was one of seven Big Ten players who made the cut. See the entire Big Ten list in this post. [TheBigLead.com: 50 Best Players in College Basketball for the 2012-2013 Season] Here are McIntyre’s Big Ten players: 28.

Team USA: Who'd fill out a Big Ten-only roster?

Team USA tips off its Olympic training slate with its first exhibition game Thursday in Las Vegas. USA is stacked, per usual, and it’s the favorite to win gold next month in London. With the action about to start, I got to thinking: what if Team USA was comprised of only former Big Ten players, starting with the 2007-08 season (the BTN era)? See what my 12-man roster would look like in this post. Why only players who finished their careers between the 2007-08 and 2011-12 seasons? The reason is three-fold: 1. Team USA doesn’t use college players anymore; 2.

KenPom.com: Big Ten frosh projections

If you don’t know the names yet, familiarize yourself with Yogi Ferrell, Gary Harris, Sam Dekker, Mitch McGary and Adam Woodburry before the college basketball season tips off. The way talent evaluators speak of these Big Ten incoming freshmen — among others in the deep and talented class — the future of the conference is in excellent hands. But how much will these uberly talented freshmen contribute in Year 1? Drew Cannon, of KenPom.com, takes a look at that in his 2012 freshman projections, which analyzes members of ESPNU’s Top 100 incoming freshmen. [BTN.com: Cody Zeller made right call staying

Did You See This? Purdue trick shot video

Name the trick shot, Purdue basketball players D.J. Byrd and Dru Antrhop and former Boiler Ryne Smith made it a recently uploaded DJ Byrd YouTube video. Seriously, these guys got creative in the video that starts with them all hitting halfcourt shots in succession and also includes shots from the Paint Crew and from atop the railing courtside at Mackey Arena. See the video in this post. If you are questioning the authenticity of our skill shot video then we are seriously questioning the authenticity of your intelligence — Ryne Smith (@RyneSmith_) July 3, 2012 [Byrd and Smith were trading

A look ahead: Top Big Ten 2013 NBA Draft prospects

With the 2012 NBA Draft in the rearview mirror, it’s time to rank the Big Ten’s top 2013 draft prospects. There’s a ton of talent across the conference, from freshmen to seniors. For the sake of this post, though, only sophomores through seniors are considered. Let’s call it the Harrison Barnes rule. If you remember, two years ago, Barnes was named to the AP Preseason All-America Team before playing a single college game. Things didn’t turn out as well as expected. So without further ado, here are my top 10 Big Ten 2013 NBA Draft prospects. [BTN.com: Four ex-Big Ten

Hungry? Grab a Robbie Hummel cookie

How much do Purdue fans love Robbie Hummel? So much, evidently, they’ll put his mug on their desserts. @GoldandBlackcom tweeted a picture of a plate full of cookies at Hummel’s NBA draft party Thursday night, and half of the tasty treats featured Hummel in a Purdue uniform.
