D.J. Byrd grabs late rebound, on knees, calls timeout

There are plays that fans never forget, and D.J. Byrd came up with one in Wednesday’s 68-61 win over Illinois that the Purdue faithful should have no trouble remembering. With 21.5 seconds left, Purdue leading 63-61 and Jacob Lawson at the free-throw line, Byrd corralled a missed freebie, on his knees, and managed to call a timeout before going out of bounds. Watch the play here. Whether he traveled or shouldn’t have been granted the timeout due to the fact he was falling out of bounds, it’s still a veteran/smart/creative hustle play. And Byrd wasn’t done with the big-time plays.

Purdue upsets No. 14 Illinois in Big Ten opener

Terone Johnson scored a career-high 25 points and D.J. Byrd spurred a key 19-3 second-half run to send Purdue past No. 14 Illinois 68-61 on Wednesday night. The Boilermakers (7-6, 1-0 Big Ten) are above .500 for the first time this season and have won eight straight over the Fighting Illini. Illinois (13-2, 0-1) was led by Brandon Paul with 15 points and Joseph Bertrand with 14, not quite enough to prevent an eighth straight conference loss on the road.

Yarina: My All-Big Ten noncon teams

And just like that, it’s time for the Big Ten season to tip. It was a highly successful nonconference season, with the Big Ten owning the national polls. We have even more to look forward in the coming months, however, as many feel this could be one of the better conference races in recent history. Check out my All-Big Ten Nonconference Teams in this post.

Power Rankings: 12-1 Minnesota on the way up

Happy Holidays! I have a “present” for you. It’s my latest Big Ten Power Rankings.

Big Ten Geeks: Should every team play in tourney?

We’ve already argued for and against divisions in Big Ten basketball. Today, we discuss whether every member of a 14-team Big Ten should be allowed to play in the Big Ten tournament. Josh: No. Tournaments are a lot of fun. There’s no atmosphere that’s better than a split crowd at a neutral site. And in the Big Ten Tournament, that happens numerous times over a four-day stretch. But for whatever reason, the Committee just can’t seem to recognize a conference tournament for what it is—a handful of conference games in a single-elimination format. The conference tournament should absolutely not trump

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan State and Turnovers

In our preseason Michigan State point/counterpoint, Josh and I debated how the Spartans would replace Draymond Green. Of major concern were not only Green’s offensive contributions but also his excellent defensive acumen. So, after 12 games, how does this Green-less squad compare to last season’s team? At the most basic level, Michigan State is 10-2 with one very good win and two not-terrible losses. Last season, Michigan State was 10-2 with two good wins and two not-terrible losses. On the surface, everything is basically the same to this point. But, dear reader, we always look below the surface. Just as

Super Seven: Ranking best Big Ten hoops arenas

When it comes to the best hoop arenas in the nation, places like Kentucky’s Rupp Arena, Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion and Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse often are mentioned. But the Big Ten has its share of iconic venues, and I rank the conference’s seven best in this week’s Super Seven. [ RELATED: Where does your team land on our latest Power Rankings? ] 1.

Hammons helps Purdue down Ball State, 66-56

A.J. Hammons scored 15 points to help Purdue defeat Ball State 66-56 on Tuesday night. Terone Johnson scored 14 points, D.J. Byrd and Ronnie Johnson scored 11 each and Jacob Lawson added six points and 11 rebounds for the Boilermakers (5-6). Purdue had lost two straight and was coming off an 81-68 loss to Notre Dame.

Purdue freshman F Jay Simpson to miss rest of season

Purdue freshman forward Jay Simpson will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season due to a lingering foot injury, the school announced Tuesday. He will be eligible to seek a medical hardship waiver. “Jay has made every effort to rehab his foot in order to continue to contribute on the court this season, but it hasn’t come along as quickly as we would have liked,” Purdue head coach Matt Painter said in a statement. “The most important thing for Jay right now is to get completely healthy so this injury doesn’t remain a problem down the road.” The Champaign, Ill.,
