Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 3

Indiana and Wisconsin tipped things off on Saturday in a back-and-forth affair that did not go according to script. For one, Indiana was supposed to be the athletic offensive rebounding powerhouse, but it was Wisconsin that was crashing the offensive glass early, collecting  43 percent of its misses in the first half. Additionally, one would expect the Badgers and their miniscule turnover rate to be stingy with the giveaways, but turnovers plagued Bo Ryan’s team all game long. Wisconsin turned it over on 25 percent of its possessions, the second-highest mark for the season (MSU’s steamrolling of Wisconsin in East

Tourney preview: Here come Badgers, Buckeyes

The Buckeyes advanced to their fifth consecutive title game by topping No. 3 Michigan State, while the Badgers eliminated No. 1 Indiana. Before the title game, our guys preview the matchup on the”Big Ten Tip-Off Show” at 3 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go. And at 7, don’t forget about our “Selection Sunday Special.” No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 4 Wisconsin It’s fitting that Ohio State and Wisconsin are meeting in the Big Ten

Amazing moments: See these top tourney plays

If it’s highlights you’re looking for, the Big Ten tourney was the place to be. From Brandon Paul’s buzzer-beater in Thursday’s opening round to Keith Appling’s drive and posterizing dunk on Friday, there was no shortage of highlight-reel plays. Watch some of our favorite Big Ten tourney plays from the first three days in this post.

Ryan, Badgers run winning streak to 12 vs. Hoosiers

The last time Indiana beat Bo Ryan and Wisconsin, the calendar had just flipped to 2007. The date, to be exact, was Jan. 31, 2007. Since then, the Badgers have won 12 consecutive over the Hoosiers, the latest coming in Saturday’s Big Ten tourney semifinals. For some perspective, here’s how Indiana has fared against the Big Ten’s perennial powers since this run of futility began: vs. Michigan State (6-8); vs. Ohio State (5-10).

Did You See This? Jackson family tourney moment

There was a special a moment following No. 4 seed Wisconsin’s victory over No. 1 Indiana in the Big Ten tourney semifinals Saturday afternoon, and it involved a father and a son. Here’s a hint: The father is a BTN analyst. Yeah, Jim Jackson and his son, Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson, shared a genuine moment before the son joined the BTN crew on set to talk about the win. [ RELATED: View our 2013 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament homepage ] Jackson finished the game with seven points, three rebounds, four assists and one steal. He and the Badgers will

Quick hit: Badgers dictated game's pace

The Badgers slowed down the prolific Indiana attack, keeping the Hoosiers under 60 points. And this was an Indiana squad that came in averaging 80.8 points in all games. Wisconsin did a great job denying entry passes to the post and rarely offered open looks from 3-point range. Bottom line: It was a textbook Wisconsin victory. You see, this is why Bo Ryan was the Big Ten coach of the year. And, that’s 12 wins in a row for Wisconsin over Indiana.

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 2

Scouting matters. Have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t know your opponent, you’ll get sliced up. So credit Indiana for blowing up Illinois’ offense by stretching its defense well out to the perimeter in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. There was no space to breathe for Illinois’ shooters, and consequently just 6 of Illinois’ 27 field goal attempts were three-pointers in the first half. Now, it may not seem like a big deal to take the three-pointer away from a team shooting 29 percent on threes in conference play. And because no strategy comes
