Big Ten makes splash with Gavitt Tipoff Games

NEW YORK — Jim Delany’s sense of excitement was apparent in his voice when he spoke during breakfast this morning of the coming Big Ten-Big East basketball event that was just hours away from being announced but had been months in planning. Slathering jelly on his wheat toast inside the tony New York Athletic Club on the southern edge of Central Park, Delany spoke about the need to establish a Big Ten presence in New York. And, there was no better partner to help begin that process than the Big East. [ MORE: Gavitt Tipoff Games 101 ] “I have

Dienhart: My early 2014-15 hoops predictions

Last week, esteemed colleague Brent Yarina gave us a super-early look at the 2014-15 basketball season, picking an order of finish with three all-league teams. I’m gonna take a bit of a deeper dive into Brent’s early forecast. So, buckle up, and let’s take a ride into the future. Player of the Year: Nebraska G/F Terran Petteway. The athletic wing took the Big Ten by storm last season after transferring from Texas Tech and subsequently leading the conference in scoring. He had his draft stock evaluated and didn’t get high marks from NBA execs. So, expect an uber-motivate Petteway to

Yarina: Ranking 2014 ACC/B1G Challenge games

The matchups for the 2014 ACC/Big Ten Challenge have been announced, and now it’s time to rank the 14 games. Remember, this year, Maryland switches sides and Rutgers also is added to the Big Ten ledger. See my rankings in this post. In case you’re wondering, the ACC leads the event, 10-3-2, although the Big Ten has won or tied each of the last five seasons. [ MORE: 2014 Big Ten/ACC Challenge matchups announced ] 1.

ACC/Big Ten Challenge games announced

Ready for some hoops – or at least news to get you excited about the season that is still five months out? Here you go: The matchups for the 2014 ACC/Big Ten Challenge were announced Thursday, and there are some really intriguing pairings. For example, Duke at Wisconsin. This year’s event will feature 14 games, with the Big Ten’s addition of Maryland, which comes over from the opposition, and Rutgers. That’s two more games than the previous three years, and five more than there were when the event launched in 1999. Speaking of history, after losing the event’s first 10

Ten Big Ten teams make the list, including newcomer Maryland (No. 30), paced by reigning national semifinalist Wisconsin (No. 3). The No. 1 team? That’s Kentucky, of course.

Yarina: A super-early look at 2014-15 hoops predictions

With Mitch McGary announcing Friday that he will enter the NBA draft, we officially know what each Big Ten team will return for the 2014-15 season. So, naturally, that means it’s time to take a SUPER-early stab at next year’s standings and All-Big Ten teams. See my way-too-early predictions in this post.

Dienhart: Here are my final Big Ten hoops grades

The dust has settled on another basketball season. And, it was a good one for the Big Ten, as three schools advanced to the Elite Eight (Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State) and one made it to the Final Four (Wisconsin). Another won the NIT (Minnesota). Let’s punctuate the season by handing out final grades. Illinois, 20-15, 7-11/T8th. The Fighting Illini had a roller coaster season. In earlier January after a home win vs. Penn State, Illinois was 13-2 overall and 2-0 in the Big Ten. Alas, the wheels came off during an eight-game losing skid. Illinois would go on to lose

Magnificent 7: An early look at 2014-15 MVP race

The Big Ten has suffered some big attrition when it comes to players leaving early for the NBA Draft as Ohio State’s LaQuinton Ross, Indiana’s Noah Vonleh, Michigan State’s Gary Harris and Michigan’s Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III all declared. Michigan’s Mitch McGary still is weighing his options. If he bolts, it will leave another gap to fill. On top of that, stars like Roy Devyn Marble of Iowa, Adreian Payne of Michigan State and Tim Frazier of Penn State are departing seniors. Who’s left? Who will be the front-runners for Big Ten Player of the Year in 2014-15,
