Big Ten Hoops Power Rankings

One week of Big Ten play in the books, 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. See Brent’s rankings in this post. 1. Michigan State (13-2, 2-0) – The Spartans haven’t lost since the season-opening defeats to North Carolina and Duke. All together, Michigan State

Big Ten Geeks: New Ballgame

Every year, it’s a test of one’s will to avoid drawing any conclusions prior to the beginning of conference play. For instance, two years ago the Texas Longhorns jumped out to an undefeated mark before beginning their conference slate. Non-conference opponents included Pitt, UNC, and Michigan State. After opening conference play with wins over what turned out to be the bottom of the Big XII, Texas sat atop both polls (I still don’t understand the point of polls in college basketball) and was generally recognized as the best team in the country. Yet, the team finished with 10 losses and

Best of the Best: Dec. 26-Jan. 1 Honors

Every Sunday night during the hoops season, BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina recaps the week that was on the men’s hardwood and hands out his weekly honors. See Brent’s latest installment, for action from Dec. 26-Jan.1, in this post. And get ready for the coming week of Big Ten action with our Big Ten scoreboard. Player of the week: Michigan State’s Keith Appling – Appling was the catalyst behind Michigan State sending No. 15 Indiana to its first loss of the season Wednesday, exploding for a career-high 25 points and adding six rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block.

Big Ten Geeks: IU, MSU Trade Blows Like True Heavyweights

The conference season is officially underway, as every B1G team has played a game (isn’t that 12-team balance nice?). Let’s take a look at the opening performances from Wednesday and Thursday. Indiana and Michigan State played a wild one at the Breslin Center, with the squads taking turns looking like Big Ten title contenders. For the Spartans, it was the beginning and the end of the game that they’ll want to remember, as they jumped out to an 18 point lead with five minutes left in the first half. Indiana then responded with a 38-11 run–triggered by three consecutive threes–that

12 for 12: A dozen 2012 Predictions

Predictions. Everyone has them, and rarely do people prognosticate correctly. As the saying goes, that’s why they play the game. I’ve been burned with predictions several times, the most recent one coming when I said Illinois was for real and a Rose Bowl contender. We all know how that turned out! With the calendar flipping to 2012 Sunday, it’s time to offer up some more educated guesses, posted in a multiple choice test format to give it a different wrinkle. Feel free to post your answers or fill in your “other” selection in the comment box. The predictions are listed

Big Ten Geeks: Barnburner in Illinois, Calamity in Nebraska

And they’re off! Conference play began last night, and we’ve already been treated to a close game and a Wisconsin blowout–two things we’ll probably see plenty of over the next two-and-a-half months. Let’s get to the details. In the first B1G conference game of the season, Illinois and Minnesota played an entertaining–if not always well-played–double-overtime thriller. Late in the first half, it started to look like the Illini would run away with the game, taking a 13-point lead before a banked three by Rodney Williams cut it to 10 at the break. Still, Illinois put together a very nice half of

Wisconsin hands Nebraska loss in Big Ten opener

(AP) Ryan Evans scored a career-high 22 points and No. 11 Wisconsin defeated injury-plagued Nebraska 64-40 in the Cornhuskers’ inaugural Big Ten game Tuesday night. The Huskers closed within five points early in the second half, but the Badgers went on a 27-5 run to put the game out of reach. Jordan Taylor added 15 points as the Badgers (12-2, 1-0) won their ninth consecutive Big Ten opener. Toney McCray led the Huskers (8-4, 0-1) with 16 points and nine rebounds.
