Did You See This? Bruesewitz's new hairdo

No Big Ten basketball player sports more hairdos than Mike Bruesewitz. The Wisconsin red head has rocked this look, this look, this look and this look, among others. The next time you see Bruesewitz, he’ll be sporting a Kramer-esque haircut. Yes, this Kramer, the one from Seinfeld. Check out a picture of Bruesewitz’s new hairdo in this post. Brueser sporting a new look…the guys call him "Kramer" #Badgers pic.twitter.com/pVgFvu3en3 — Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) February 24, 2013 If Bruesewitz is going for the Kramer look, he nailed it. It’s nearly impossible to pull off this look, but if any Big Ten

Team up: Ranking football & hoops coaching combos

Fun item from esteemed ex-colleague David Fox of Athlon Sports on the top football/basketball coaching tandems in the nation. Topping the list: Ohio State’s duo of Thad Matta and Urban Meyer. Michigan’s duo of Brady Hoke and John Beilein is No. 2 in the nation, according to Athlon. Here is how Athlon ranks the Big Ten tandems. Hard to argue with Fox putting Matta and Meyer on top. Matta has taken Ohio State to two Final Fours, three Big Ten tourney titles and a share of five regular-season crowns. Meyer won two national titles at Florida and debuted with a

Big Ten Geeks: The best B1G defense in a decade?

Wisconsin held Northwestern to a paltry 0.74 points per possession in one of the most methodical blowouts you’ll ever see. The Wildcats were just consistently outclassed, as the Badgers steadily built their lead until it had swelled to the final 28-point margin. Northwestern’s lowly output helped Wisconsin nudge its in-conference defensive efficiency down to 0.901 points per trip. If the Badgers can keep that number at that level, it would be the Big Ten’s lowest ever in the tempo-free era (since 2002-03). The conference has seen some fantastic defensive squads over those ten-plus seasons, but none of them were able

No. 17 Wisconsin stifles Northwestern, 69-41

Jared Berggren and Ben Brust each scored 12 points, and No. 19 Wisconsin shut down Northwestern 69-41 on Wednesday night for its fifth win in six games. The balanced Badgers (19-8, 10-4 Big Ten) had five players with at least eight points and held the Wildcats to 29-percent shooting during a very businesslike performance. Brust, who missed the last two days of practice with a sore left knee, and Berggren also had eight rebounds apiece as Wisconsin enjoyed a 47-22 edge on the boards. Reggie Hearn scored 13 for Northwestern (13-14, 4-10), which has dropped four in a row and

Big Ten Geeks: Say Hello to your champs

Indiana pulled out a huge road win over Michigan State, thanks largely to the all-around heroics of Victor Oladipo. The surging national player of the year contender made things happen all over the court. On the offensive end, Oladipo was about as efficient as it gets, attacking the tin (he went six for seven on dunks and layups, ridiculous numbers for a guard) while turning it over only once. [ RELATED: Big Ten Player of the Year: Burke or Oladipo? ] Scoring 19 points on 11 shots is impressive enough, but Oladipo’s defensive effort was even better. He finished with

Power Rankings: Surging Illini continue ascent

John Groce’s Illini continued their torrid play this week, dispatching Purdue and Northwestern, teams they lost to earlier this season. Winners of four straight, Illinois has moved to No. 5 in my latest Power Rankings. Where does your team land? Find out in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Getting ready for the Dance

We’re only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday, and there’s only a handful of games left for teams to pick up signature wins. This weekend, some did, and some didn’t. Iowa picked up an important win over Minnesota on Saturday, rallying from an early 16-point deficit to an impressive 21-point win. And frankly, this game was over about midway through the second half. The turning point came when Fran McCaffrey deployed a zone defense, which flummoxed the Gopher attack. This isn’t the first time that Minnesota has looked confused against a zone—Northwestern sprung the upset against the Gophers by

Video: Watch Ryan Evans' powerful putback

Prior to Sunday’s tip vs. Ohio State, Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans was listed as questionable due to illness. Evans started despite being under the weather, and it’s a good thing he did. Not only did he help No. 20 Wisconsin beat No. 13 Ohio State, the senior provided one of the best individual highlights of his career with a remarkable second-half putback. Watch the dunk now and see the Twitter reaction to it in this post. Here are some of the tweets following Evans’ slam: I thought Ryan Evans is sick? That dunk was sick! #Badgers — Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) February
