Big Ten Geeks: Huskers Keep Hope Alive

Michigan State used a run out of intermission to create separation from Iowa in an eventual 10-point win. Both teams scored nearly at will in this one, but the Spartans’ outstanding three-point shooting masked a high turnover rate that is becoming worrisome. This has been Tom Izzo’s best-ever team at limiting turnovers (at least in the tempo-free era), but the past three games have seen Michigan State turn it over on nearly a quarter of its trips. Is this a temporary blip, the result of some long-absent players getting back into the groove? The Spartans had better hope so, as

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan stands alone

Michigan won the Big Ten title outright last night on the strength of a shockingly easy win at Illinois. Sure, the Illini don’t have an impressive record, but John Groce’s team came into the matchup on a three-game winning streak, during which no opponent broke 0.9 points per trip. This was a hot team whose defense was absolutely stifling conference opponents. Talk had even begun of this Illinois team somehow sneaking back onto the bubble in the season’s final week. The Wolverines obviously didn’t get the memo. Michigan had an historic night from three, knocking down 16 of 23 from

Heart condition ends Jay Simpson's Purdue career

(AP) Doctors have told Purdue forward Jay Simpson his career is over because of a heart condition. In a release issued Tuesday night, coach Matt Painter said the redshirt freshman was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – the same condition former basketball stars Hank Gathers, Reggie Lewis, Kevin Duckworth and Jason Collier all died from. Painter called the decision “tough” and “upsetting.” He said the Boilermakers were “very fortunate” their doctors were able to diagnose the condition. Simpson started seven times and played in 26 games this season, averaging 4.3 points and 3.6 rebounds. The release said Simpson is on course
