Big Ten Geeks: Bubble Edition

As we hit mid-February, the thoughts of college basketball fans naturally turn to the impending NCAA Tournament, especially to that dreaded B-word that gives college coaches heartburn–bubble. The Big Ten is not immune to this syndrome; in fact, four conference members find themselves squarely on that bubble. One of them was in action last night, while the other three will play tonight. Let’s examine these squads that are teetering on the edge. Last night, Minnesota missed a golden opportunity in a 10-point home loss to Ohio State. From an early 12-12 tie, the Buckeyes went on a 20-0 run, putting

Indiana's Cody Zeller

Dienhart: Who's My Top Star This Week?

Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger or Michigan State’s Draymond Green? Who is the best player? It may be neither. Perhaps it’s Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor or Indiana’s Cody Zeller. And how does it compare to my list from last week? I’m also interested in your rankings. Tell me what you think in the comments box or via my mailbag. I read all of your notes and respond to as many as I can. Or save your comments and bring them to our weekly Super Wednesday Live chat on Facebook. 1. Jared Sullinger, C, Ohio State, So.

Illinois The Illini are trying to shore-up their once-tough defense, writes Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune. I hope it’s not too late. Meyers Leonard shows flashes of good and bad, says Loren Tate of the Champaign News-Gazette. But I say more good than bad. I still love the guy. Illinois’ NCAA chances? They look grim at this point, writes Paul Klee of the Champaign News-Gazette.

Rematches headline week's slate

The roster of games this week is littered with some intriguing matchups that will go a long way toward determining the pecking order at the top of the Big Ten standings as we enter the final few weeks of the season. And no tilt on this week’s list of contests is bigger than Wisconsin’s visit to Michigan State on Feb. 16. Now that you know senior writer Tom Dienhart’s No. 1 game for this week, what about the others? Dienhart ranks them all, from 1 to 11, in this post. 1. Wisconsin at Michigan State, Thursday, Feb. 16.

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. 1. Michigan State (20-5, 9-3) – How impressive was Michigan State’s 58-48 win at Ohio State

Ohio State's Jared Sullinger

Dienhart: Let's look at the week ahead

With Michigan State’s huge—and surprisingly convincing–win at Ohio State on Saturday, the Big Ten title chase has become a jumbled four-team race (standings). The Spartans and Buckeyes are tied at the top with 9-3 league marks, while the Wolverines are one half-game behind, at 9-4, and the Badgers are one game behind, at 8-4. Wisconsin can take a big step toward the top when it visits East Lansing for an important showdown with Michigan State. Ohio State? It’s the team on the spot this week with two big road games. What’s the Buckeyes’ psyche? Illinois also is feeling the pressure

It's on: MSU win opens up Big Ten title race

Not only was No. 12 Michigan State’s upset victory at No. 3 Ohio State huge for the Spartans (AP recap), but it did wonders to the Big Ten title race. Entering Saturday night’s contest at Value City Arena, where the Buckeyes hadn’t lost during the Jared Sullinger era, Ohio State had a chance to move two games ahead of the Spartans and the other legit Big Ten title contenders (Michigan and Wisconsin). That didn’t happen, of course, and now four teams are within one game of the top spot in the Big Ten. All four of the teams have six
