Big Ten Geeks: Before the madness, a look back

Ole Miss' Henderson tweets about Bruesewitz

Big Ten fans and Wisconsin fans, in particular, are going to hear a lot about Marshall Henderson between now and Friday’s Wisconsin-Ole Miss NCAA tourney game. The much-talked-about Henderson receives more than his share of national attention, nearly as much the result of his personality as his overall game. On Monday, Henderson tweeted about facing the Badgers. cant wait to hoop against MIKE BRUSEWITZ!!! that dude got some serious swag!!! lol he seem like a cool ass dude forreal — marshall henderson (@NativeFlash22) March 18, 2013 [ RELATED: Tom Dienhart previews Wisconsin’s NCAA tourney chances ] Kind of tame, all

NCAA Preview: How far can Badgers go?

Wisconsin may be under-seeded as a No. 5, but it could be pushed by No. 12 Ole Miss and Marshall Henderson in the opener. The Rebels are hot, coming off the SEC tourney title. This team can score. But good defense typically trumps good offense. And no one does defense like the Badgers. Let’s take a closer look.

Seven important players to Big Ten's NCAA fate

Seven Big Ten teams made the NCAA tournament, and now it’s time to look at one key player from each team who could help fuel a tourney run. I’m not talking about the obvious stars, such as Trey Burke, Deshaun Thomas or Cody Zeller, here. Instead, these are guys who either have struggled lately or have heated up down the stretch. D.J. Richardson, Illinois – The Illini shoot more than 3s than anyone, and Richardson averages seven attempts from distance per game. Problem is, in the last four games, he’s a 25 percent shooter from distance (7-of-28) – not to

Big Ten Geeks: On Buckeyes & NCAA Tourney

Ohio State won the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, the fourth time that Thad Matta’s team has taken home the crown. While the Buckeyes won largely on the strength of its defense—holding Wisconsin to under 0.8 points per possession—this Ohio State team has been offensively excellent over the back half of its Big Ten schedule: Offensive Efficiency 1st 9 Big Ten Games 1.01 2nd 9 Big Ten Games 1.07 We know the Buckeyes have a great defense, but the one-dimensional nature of this team limited its ceiling. But now that Ohio State is starting to score in bunches, it’s time

Let's go dancing: Big Ten teams head to tourney

The NCAA bracket features seven Big Ten teams and that’s no shock to anyone following the conference. And the Big Ten’s power was reflected in four teams being seeded No. 4 or higher—No. 1 Indiana; No. 2 Ohio State; No. 3 Michigan State; No. 4 Michigan. Wisconsin just missed as a No. 5 seed. Here’s a look at the Big Dance through a Big Ten lens, as the league looks for its first national championship since Michigan State cut down the nets after the 1999-2000 season. Toughest path: Michigan State. Bracket makers didn’t do the Spartans any favors, making them

Dienhart: Buckeyes continue to impress

This is the Buckeyes’ third Big Ten tourney title in the last four years and fourth in seven years. No Big Ten team has more. Ohio State’s march to this point is impressive when you consider they lost Jared Sullinger and William Buford off of a Final Four team from last season. To win today, it was all about defense. In fact, these are the two best defensive teams in the Big Ten. And it showed. How rough was it? The Buckeyes shot just 38.5 percent. From 3-point range, Ohio State was 1-of-16 (6.3 percent). Deshaun Thomas led all scorers

Buckeyes top Badgers for Big Ten tourney title

DeShaun Thomas scored 17 points and No. 10 Ohio State used its stout defense to beat No. 22 Wisconsin 50-43 on Sunday for the Big Ten tournament title. Thomas was 6 for 19 from the field, but made some big free throws down the stretch to lead the Buckeyes to their fifth tournament title in nine appearances. Aaron Craft had nine points and six rebounds, and LaQuinton Ross also delivered a couple of huge plays for Ohio State (26-7).
