Reality Checks for Purdue, Illinois

The Gene Keady coaching tree is scratching its head after last weekend. Both Purdue and Illinois lost, and lost in ways that have been all-too-familiar to fans of those teams. The Boilermakers started out well enough, nearly running Butler out of the gym in the first half: But it was a different story in the second frame: Two Point Pct.    Turnover Pct.    Offensive Rebounding Pct.    Points Per Possession    Purdue, 1st Half 66.7 9.4 50.0 1.44 Purdue, 2nd Half    20.0 16.1 33.3 0.61 What changed? Well, Butler coach Brad Stevens instructed his team to focus in

Big Ten Geeks: Tuning Up

Northwestern showed no ill effects from its 10-day layoff in a 30-point shellacking of Texas Southern. The impressive results, as usual for the Wildcats, were at the offensive end, where they posted the second-highest efficiency allowed by the Tigers all season. Texas Southern has faced a couple teams relevant to the Wildcats, so the efficiencies posted by each team against the Tigers may be enlightening: Off. Eff. Def. Eff. Northwestern 1.18 0.74 Baylor 1.11 0.82 Michigan State 1.05 0.57 Northwestern posted the best offensive efficiency of the three and actually defended Texas Southern better than Baylor did. Of course, it’s

Gophers Looking Golden

It’s another light week for college basketball with many students enduring finals, and the Big Ten is no different. Still, we got a few interesting games last night that are worth discussing, plus the quiet period provides us a nice chance to catch up on some individual player stats. Let’s jump right in. Minnesota continues to impress without Trevor Mbakwe, as it handled Central Michigan by 20 points. The Gophers are now 5-0 since the ill-fated Dayton game, but that in itself isn’t much of a story–after all, they’ve only faced one decent team in that stretch. Instead, let’s take a

Watch Gus Johnson call Ben Brust’s sixth 3-pointer from Saturday’s win over UNLV now and see the rankings in this post. 1.

Purdue's Anthony Johnson

Did You See This? Purdue's A. Johnson

Purdue freshman Anthony Johnson brought down the house at Mackey Arena on Saturday afternoon. With Purdue leading overmatched Eastern Michigan in the second half, the exciting young guard threw down a huge dunk off of a Robbie Hummel missed 3-pointer. Perhaps the most impressive part of the play, Johnson sprinted in from outside of the arc to send Hummel’s shot down with authority. Watch Johnson’s big-time dunk now.
