UW: Uthoff can transfer to any non-Big Ten school

On Thursday, Wisconsin sent an email addressing the transfer and appeal process as it pertains to redshirt freshman Jarrod Uthoff. Of most importance, the school announced it has lifted “permission to contact” restrictions on any school outside the Big Ten. See all the information in this post. [Dienhart, DeCourcy weigh in on Uthoff transfer] Here is a brief synopsis of the transfer and appeal process as it pertains to Uthoff: It is incorrect that Uthoff requested “permission to contact” 25 schools. He has requested “permission to contact” 16 schools, 4 of which were denied. Uthoff appealed 3 of the 4

Dienhart, DeCourcy Weigh In on Uthoff Transfer

Wisconsin basketball coach Bo Ryan was being swallowed up in a firestorm of criticism surrounding the restrictions he and the school have since lifted on the transfer of redshirt freshman Jarrod Uthoff. But was it all warranted? If you look closely at what it was Ryan was asking for, it was merely an explanation as to why he wanted to transfer. At the time, neither Ryan nor anyone at Wisconsin had talked to Uthoff about why the former Iowa Mr. Basketball wanted to transfer, aside from the fact he said he didn’t fit Ryan’s system.

7 B1G Teams on Lunardi's 2013 Bracketology

It’s April, the NCAA just crowned its latest men’s basketball champion (Kentucky), so that means it’s time for ESPN.com’s Joe Lunardi to post his first installment of 2013 Bracketology. Lunardi has seven Big Ten teams dancing, as of right now, headlined by Indiana, the conference’s lone No. 1 seed. Michigan State and Michigan received No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, respectively. See all of Lunardi’s Big Ten predictions in this post. WHERE THE BIG TEN TEAMS LAND No. 1 Indiana No. 2 Michigan State No. 3 Michigan No. 4 Wisconsin No. 4 Ohio State No. 8 Minnesota No. 11 Purdue

UK-IU, SU-UW land on SB Nation's top 10 games of 2011-12

That Kentucky-Indiana men’s basketball game in December was pretty memorable, wasn’t it? The guys over at SBNation.com thought it was so great, in fact, the game that forever cemented Christian Watford in Indiana lore claimed the No. 2 spot in the publication’s Top 10 Best College Basketball Games of 2011-12. The only game better than Indiana’s buzzer-beating upset of No. 1 Kentucky at Assembly Hall (AP recap): No. 1 Kentucky’s win over No. 5 North Carolina (AP recap). Another Big Ten team’s game landed on the list, and while Wisconsin’s Sweet 16 defeat to Syracuse (AP recap) didn’t produce a buzzer-beater,

Super-early 2012-13 Big Ten Hoops Predictions

The deadline for college basketball players to decide whether they’re coming back to school or entering the 2012 NBA Draft was Tuesday. Here’s what we know: Meyers Leonard and Jared Sullinger are gone, while Trey Burke, Deshaun Thomas and Christian Watford are back after testing the NBA waters. A lot of things will change before the season tips in November, but BTN.com’s Brent Yarina offers some super-early 2012-13 predictions. See all of them in this post. 2012-13 PROJECTED STANDINGS 1. Indiana – The entire starting 5 is back, plus IU welcomes one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. 2. Michigan

Stay or Go? Past Big Ten early NBA draft entrants

Illinois’ Meyers Leonard declared for the NBA draft Monday (story), and on Wednesday, it was Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger’s turn (story). With Leonard and Sullinger, both sophomores, leaving early and the deadlines to declare for the draft approaching (April 10, NCAA; April 29, NBA), BTN.com’s Brent Yarina considers some of the previous Big Ten sophomores – plus freshmen – who have left early since the new millennium. How did the decisions work out? Find out in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: Finally, Four

Ohio State was our preseason pick for the cream of the conference, and, despite a bumpy Big Ten slate that left them sharing the title, the Buckeyes are now the last B1G standing. The Sweet Sixteen was rather cruel to Big Ten teams not from Columbus; let’s start with the happy news and work our way through the rest. Ohio State first handled a resilient Cincinnati squad with a magnificent offensive display, shooting 47 percent on threes and taking excellent care of the basketball. The Buckeyes posted the second highest efficiency allowed by Cincinnati all season, and it propelled them

Buckeyes ride Thomas, Sullinger into Elite Eight

Three Big Ten teams entered Thursday night with hopes of staying alive in the NCAA Tournament but only one of them survived as Ohio State moved on to the Elite Eight while Michigan State and Wisconsin head home.We’ve got full box scores for all three games on our scoreboard page, and I’ll get ready for Friday night’s game between Indiana and Kentucky, too. But right now head inside this post for my look at all three Thursday night games, including what’s next for each of these three Big Ten teams. It’s never easy to be knocked out of the tourney,

Syracuse edges Wisconsin, 64-63

Top-seeded Syracuse held on for a 64-63 victory over fourth-seeded Wisconsin on Thursday night in the East Regional semifinals. The Badgers had two shots at the win after Kris Joseph, a 75 percent free throw shooter, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 18.9 seconds left and the Orange leading by a point. Jordan Taylor came down and missed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left and Mike Bruesewitz’s toss with the rebound was off, at the buzzer.

Buckeyes advance but Spartans, Badgers fall

We tracked tonight’s three Big Ten games in the Sweet Sixteen. Wisconsin had a chance late but fell to Syracuse in the first game, 63-64. Then Michigan State was eliminated by Louisville. In the late game, Ohio State handled Cincinnati. BTN’s TV coverage continues with nightly episodes of Big Ten Basketball and Beyond: Tournament Edition. On nights with tournament competition, the show airs immediately following the last game. Throughout the tourney we’re also airing the postgame press conferences (details here). If the Buckeyes beat Cincinnati, and the Badgers can take down No. 1 Syracuse, the two could meet in the
