Quick hits: Badgers ran their kind of show

The Badgers were able to dictate the pace, playing a low-scoring, grind-it-out affair. Michigan? It wanted to play this game in the 70s or 80s—but it never was able to get on track with its array of high-flying perimeter talent.

Big Ten Geeks: Thoughts on Day 1

The tournament opener between Illinois and Minnesota didn’t offer much in the way of aesthetically pleasing play, but a buzzer beater has a way of upping the entertainment value. The Gophers turned it over on a season-worst 35 percent of their possessions, allowing the Illini to stay in the game dispute big Minnesota advantages in every other category. That set the stage for the finish, which included a wild five-shot Illinois possession that ended with a D.J. Richardson three to tie the game. The Gophers then struggled under the pressure, nearly turning it over twice before Austin Hollins stepped on

Recapping the Season, Part Two

See part one of our discussion here. Mike: Miles has done a great job in his first season. I had expected something akin to 2008-09 Indiana—a sub-200 KenPom ranking, one or two conference wins, and general misery. Instead, his Huskers managed to beat a few solid teams and rarely got blown out. That’s a hugely successful season in my mind. Unfortunately, things are probably going to get worse before they get better. Three of Miles’ more productive players won’t return, and while his 2013 recruiting class looks solid, it is still composed of 3-star freshmen. Furthermore, there is basically no
