Big Ten Hoops Power Rankings

It’s time to release my latest Big Ten men’s hoops power rankings. The rankings are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply my thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands right now and who would win on a neutral court. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina or leave your comments below. Also, did you see my top 10 Big Ten plays from the past week? Watch them and vote for your top play. The latest national polls are out, as well. 1. Michigan State (22-5, 11-3) – Here’s a

Wisconsin honors 2002 Big Ten title team

At halftime of Sunday’s game against Penn State, Wisconsin celebrated the 10-year anniversary of its 2002 Big Ten title team. The team, of course, was Bo Ryan’s first in Madison, Wis., and it wasn’t expected to compete for the Big Ten crown. The Badgers entered Big Ten play with a mediocre 7-6 clip, although they did upset Dwyane Wade and Marquette. Wisconsin figured things out, though, and went on to split the title with Illinois, Indiana and Ohio State, its first Big Ten crown since 1947.

Dienhart: Setting the stage for the week ahead

With each passing week, Michigan State is looking more and more dominant. In fact, this past week may have been the Spartans’ best yet, dominating Wisconsin, 69-55, in East Lansing and whipping Purdue, 76-62, in West Lafayette. Michigan State is looking to maintain its one-game lead this week, playing at Minnesota and playing host to Nebraska. Neither game looks threatening to the Spartans, but they must remain vigilant against a letdown. Ohio State and Michigan look to stay a game back of Sparty in what has turned into a three-team race, with the Buckeyes playing two at home (Wisconsin and

Three-Pointers: Sparty vs. Brutus

It has been an interesting week, with the league title chase coming into sharper focus with Michigan State’s big win at Ohio State. It will come down to Sparty vs. Brutus for the title, which is what we thought would happen back in October. So, it looks like the other Big Ten teams are relegated to a chase for third place. The out pouring of brutal honesty by Illinois coach Bruce Weber after a tough home loss to Purdue on Wednesday may have been the biggest story of the week. Still, on the court, there’s lots to look forward to

Big Ten Geeks: Boiling Over

Purdue picked up a huge victory for their at-large profile at Illinois on Wednesday. This game was mostly decided in the first half, as the Boilers jumped out to a 13-point lead after 16 minutes. Bruce Weber’s team couldn’t stop the smaller Purdue lineup, and it failed to take advantage at the other end by getting the ball to Meyers Leonard. From that point forward, the Illini played much better, even using a triangle-and-two to good effect in the second half, but the Boilers would never fully relinquish their lead. The split of the efficiencies tells the story of too

Keith Appling had 20 points and Derrick Nix added 12 (see full box score). The Spartans (21-5, 10-3 Big Ten) have won four straight – the longest active streak in the conference – and six of their last seven games. After building an early cushion, Penn State needed to hold off a late charge by Iowa to win 69-64. Tim Frazier sparked Penn State (12-15), as he scored 18 points (see full box score). Dive
