Big Ten Geeks: Wolverines Go Down

Most of the conference fed on cupcakes this weekend, but there were a few games of note. The best game of the weekend was Michigan’s trip to Iowa State. Sadly, it did not go as the Wolverines would have liked, although Iowa State was actually favored in this game (which calls the subsequent court-storming into question, for those who dream of joining the Fun Police). A full-strength Michigan played classic Beilein Ball, shooting a lot of threes while minimizing turnovers and shooting a high percentage on twos. And it mostly worked. The Wolverines turned it over on fewer than 16

Get all the scores, stats and video highlights from Sunday’s action in this post.

Purdue's Basil Smotherman posterizes Rider

Purdue’s Basil Smotherman threw down the kind of dunk that drops jaws in the second half of Sunday’s win over Rider. The freshman drove and exploded for a left-handed posterizing dunk that delighted the Mackey Arena faithful. Former Flyin’ Illini star Stephen Bardo, the color commentator for the game, liked what he saw, too, saying: “Putting Rider on a poster. They’re for the sale in the lobby coming up.” WOW! @Boilerball freshman Basil Smotherman posterizes the defender with a HUGE one-handed slam! #orvillemoment – http://t.co/UBmRAwtAbe — Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) November 18, 2013 Presented by Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn, these video

Big Ten Geeks: Standing Tall

The Big Ten suffered its first losses over the past couple nights, and we learned just a little bit more about the shape of this conference. Let’s dive in. In a formula that might become common this season, Illinois struggled to score over Valparaiso’s length but did enough on defense to secure the victory. After facing two decidedly smaller teams to open the season, Illinois had trouble converting over Valpo’s big and experienced frontline. In fact, the Illini’s 35.6 effective field goal percentage is the lowest mark of the John Groce era, and last season’s team wasn’t exactly a collection

Top moments from tonight's B1G hoops action

Both Illinois and Purdue notched impressive early season wins Wednesday night. Purdue blew out Central Connecticut 109-73, while Illinois edged out Valparaiso, 64-52. In the third Big Ten game of the evening, Penn State fell to Bucknell, 80-90. Get game recaps, stats and video highlights from all three games in this post. BUCKNELL 90, PENN STATE 80 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY (AP) Steven Kaspar scored 25 points and Cameron Ayers added 19 as Bucknell defeated Penn State 90-80 in a wild, back-and-forth game between two nearby Pennsylvania rivals Wednesday night. Penn State (1-1), led by D.J. Newbill (18),

Big Ten Geeks: Spartans make a statement

In the night’s top matchup, Michigan State ran out to an early 10-0 lead against a young Kentucky team and did just enough the rest of the way to pick up a very big win. It was a tale of two halves, as the Spartans made the Wildcats look slow and disorganized over the first 20 minutes. Wish I could say MSU's fastbreaking wing attack from '05 is back, but really UK just terrible at getting back on defense. — Josh and Mike (@bigtengeeks) November 13, 2013 Defensively, Michigan State’s man-to-man defense was severely packed in, making it look almost

Big Ten Geeks: Runnin' Badgers & Escapin' Boilermakers

Most of the Big Ten cruised to easy wins over cupcakes—with one notable exception—but the Wisconsin Badgers faced a formidable challenge against St. John’s. The Red Storm was mediocre last year, but the team returned everyone, including a healthy dose of rising sophomores. The team is expected to be much-improved, much like Wisconsin’s offense. And the Badgers definitely were better on the offensive end, scoring 1.32 points per possession, which was very out-of-character for last year’s team. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the defense was just as unrecognizable. Of course, there’s a legitimate point to be

Rice is a Champaign native but spent two seasons at Drake before transferring to Illinois (1-0). INSTANT

Video: Did you see that wild Purdue finish?

How close was Purdue to possibly dropping its season opener to Northern Kentucky on Friday? Answer: Really close. The Boilermakers denied Northern Kentucky on three potential game-winning buckets in the final seconds to hold on for the 77-76 win. Strong defense, indeed. But, make no mistake, it was closer than any Purdue fans had envisioned. Watch the wild finish in this post. INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: Mad scramble & a frenzied finish for @Boilerball. How close was it?
