Video: Traevon Jackson hits another clutch shot

If we’ve learned one thing from Traevon Jackson during his Wisconsin career, it’s that he isn’t afraid to take – and make – the big shot. The junior, who has a handful of late game-tying or game-winning shots to his name, added another game-winner in Sunday’s 60-58 victory over No. 8 Michigan State. This time, following an Adreian Payne game-tying triple, Jackson answered with a jumper to avoid overtime and a possible fourth straight home loss. “I put my best defender on him,” Tom Izzo said, “and he made another one.” INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: Here's that Traevon Jackson @BadgerMBB game-winner, if

Here's one topic mentioned every time your team plays

Watch a conference enough, and you can’t help but notice that every team has a common theme that gets mentioned in every broadcast. Chances are, you know your team’s topic of conversation. But what about the rest of the Big Ten teams? Here’s my recurring subject for every Big Ten team. Illinois. Bruce Weber didn’t recruit Champaign native Rayvonte Rice. Indiana. Yogi Ferrell has a new role now that Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller are in the NBA. Iowa. Depth! Michigan. Tie: Nik Stauskas isn’t just a shooter. And, the Wolverines are without preseason All-America Mitch McGary. Michigan State. Injuries!

What if the Big Ten had a dunk contest?

The NBA recently announced six contestants who will be competing in the 2014 Slam Dunk contest during NBA All Star weekend. That got us thinking about if the Big Ten had a dunk contest. Who are some of the top dunkers in the Big Ten this year? Here is a breakdown of the six Big Ten players I would want to see in a dunk contest. Did I miss anyone? Tweet them to me @BTNSean.

Review & preview: Track the latest ups & downs

It’s good to be Ohio State … at least for this week. The Buckeyes have risen from the dead, notching two big wins in the last week to breathe life into a season that had gone terribly bad. Here’s a look back at the last week—with a peek ahead, too. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Ohio State. Just when it looked like the Buckeyes were circling the drain, they rise up. Very impressive. Ohio State had lost four in a row and five of six games, falling from 15-0 and No. 3 in the nation to out of the polls

Big Ten Geeks: Bringing the Payne

Michigan State welcomed back Adreian Payne in a blowout of Penn State. The big man played very well in 18 minutes off the bench, and the Spartans performed much better than the final margin suggests. Penn State made a big run in garbage time to turn a 25-point deficit into a 15-point loss, but it was done entirely on a lineup that included guys like Colby Wollenman, Keenan Wetzel, and Dan Chapman. Final 3:32 Points Possessions Efficiency Penn State 15 7 2.14 Michigan State 5 6 0.83 Before garbage time, Michigan State dominated at both ends. First 36:28 Points Possessions

Six B1G teams in latest ESPN tournament bracket

With so many Big Ten programs constantly beating up on each other this season, how many teams from the conference will receive bids in this year’s NCAA Tournament?

ESPN Bracketology expert Joe Lunardi projects the Big Ten to get six teams into the dance, according to his latest NCAA tournament projections. Here is a breakdown of the Big Ten teams Lundari lists in his bracket, as well as where they are seeded and what region they would be playing in. EAST Wisconsin (18-5, 5-5)-

Big Ten Geeks: Crafting a Road Win

Ohio State picked up a big road win at Iowa thanks to surprisingly hot shooting. The Buckeyes shot 44 percent on threes, a number that stood in stark contrast to the Hawkeyes’ unusually cold outside shooting (3-for-20, 15 percent). Iowa dominated the glass and shot 60 percent on twos, but the three-point shot is the great equalizer, and it carried Ohio State to a huge win. Leading this attack was Aaron Craft, who went 2-for-2 from three to bolster his line of 17 points, six assists, and six steals. It was nearly a perfect game from Craft, save for four

Nigel Hayes

Nigel Hayes talks about his move 'Chocolate Tornado'

Just a freshman, Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes is as good as it gets when it comes to a soundbite in the Big Ten. Hayes is an engaging interview who tells the truth, has a good sense of humor and boasts a great delivery. The Badger showed all of those qualities in his BTN postgame interview following No. 24 Wisconsin’s win at Illinois on Tuesday. He even told us that he has a move called “Chocolate Tornado,” and that he stole it from Shaq. Watch it in this post.
