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 at that time. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina or leave your comments below. The week ahead pits Big Ten teams against two of the nation’s best programs, No. 1 Kentucky and No. 13 Kansas. Indiana hosts Kentucky at 5:15 p.m. ET Saturday, while Ohio State plays at Kansas at 3:15 p.m. Saturday. Check out Brent’s latest power rankings

Resistance Is Futile

Two nights does not a season make, but the Big Ten certainly boosted their reputation as the nation’s preeminent basketball conference by wrapping up the Big Ten/ACC Challenge by an 8-4 margin. But beyond the scope of the Challenge, there are resumes to be built here–let’s see who hurt and helped their cause this week. Wisconsin showed that their gaudy efficiency numbers aren’t just the result of smashing cupcakes in an impressive effort at North Carolina. Sure, the Badgers lost, but losing by one possession in Chapel Hill is about as encouraging as losses get. Bo Ryan’s team did a

Bedeviled by the Big Ten

The Big Ten/ACC Challenge tipped off last night, and it was (as expected) a good night for the midwesterners. The Big Ten now leads the Challenge four games to two heading into tonight’s action. Let’s run down how the good guys got there. In the night’s marquee matchup, Ohio State put on a stunning display of dominance against the Duke Blue Devils, winning by a 22-point margin that barely captures how lopsided it really was. The Buckeyes jumped on Duke right out of the gate, leading 11-0 early, but the Blue Devils responded to temporarily make it close. Ohio State’s offense, however, was simply

The Big Ten/ACC Challenge tips off in a matter of hours. With that being the case, coupled with the fact Trevor Mbakwe has been lost for the season, web editor Brent Yarina thought it was time to release his latest Big Ten Player Rankings. See Brent’s top 10 list in this post. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. PLAYER RANKINGS 1. Jared Sullinger, Ohio State – The thinned-up version of Sullinger is every bit as lethal as last year’s oversized one.

Big Ten Hoops Power Rankings

It’s Monday, and there are no Big Ten men’s hoops games for the first time since Nov. 10. That means it’s the perfect time to release my latest 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 at that time. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. 1. Ohio State (6-0) – The Buckeyes lead the Big Ten in scoring, at 85.2 points per game, and they’ve assisted on 66 percent of their baskets. While Jon Diebler and David

See Brent’s latest installment, for action from Nov. 21-27, in this post. Player of the week: Jared Sullinger, Ohio State – The sophomore sensation compiled a terrific week, averaging 19.3 points, 12.7 rebounds, three assists and 2.3 steals in three Ohio State victories. Sullinger posted three double-doubles and shot a ridiculous 72 percent on the week, plus he tied a career-high with five assists and set a career-high with four steals in an

Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor

Did You See This? Wisconsin's Taylor

Wisconsin point guard Jordan Taylor is no stranger to making highlight-reel plays, but Friday night the preseason All-America compiled one of the better sequences of his fantastic career. It started with a steal that he converted into a layup, then he stole the ensuing inbound pass and dished to Jared Berggren for a big slam. So, in a matter of 10 seconds, Taylor picked up two steals, two points and an assist. Watch the outstanding sequence here. The Badgers cruised to victory in the game over Bradley, and you can read about it here.
