Big Ten Interviews from the NBA Combine

BTN’s Jim Jackson caught up with six Big Ten names working out at the NBA’s pre-draft combine in Chicago. Jackson talked to Jared Sullinger, William Buford, Draymond Green, Jordan Taylor, Meyers Leonard, and Robbie Hummel. If you’re running games down at the gym, that’s a pretty good first six right there. Sullinger talks about getting into NBA shape this spring while Hummel tells Jackson about his numerous workouts  and how his knees are feeling so far. Watch all of the interviews down in this post. Also, The Sporting News has a quick look at the combine here, and the NBA

Purdue hoops fan? Check out this T-Shirt

I post this for my Purdue fans. I came across a Brad Miller shirt on the internet today, and it’s pretty awesome. The shirt, which can be purchased on skreened.com, features nine squares on the front, each one representing a different jersey Miller has worn during his career, starting with Purdue and ending with the Minnesota Timberwolves. It also includes his Team USA jersey, which is a cool touch. And at the bottom of the shirt, it reads “B-RAD” in bold font. If you’re a Miller fan or a Purdue fan — or even just a fan of any of the

Who's on your school's all-time hoops team?

If you compiled your school’s all-time basketball team, who would land on it? The guys over at HammerAndRails.com tackled the query with their beloved Boilermakers, and the result, as you might expect, is unbelievably talented. See their all-time Purdue team. That’s an impressive set of names. How much so? Put it this way: Chris Kramer, he of the tenacious defense, couldn’t even make it as the last guy off the bench. I’m willing to bet every college coach has a spot on his roster for a player like Kramer. HammerAndRails.com’s all-time starting 5 Glenn Robinson Rick Mount Joe Barry Carroll
