Ranking games: Two Iowa tests top the list

We begin to head down the backstretch of the season, as my friends at Big Ten Geeks pointed out earlier this week. If you are like me, getting a clean read on the season makes you as confused as ever. But, don’t worry. Things will begin to crystallize … I think. Here’s my ranking of this week’s men’s basketball games. 1. Michigan at Iowa, Sat., Feb. 8. This is the game of week, ladies and gentlemen. The Wolverines sit atop the Big Ten along with Michigan State, as each has one loss. The Hawkeyes have three losses. A defeat will

Big Ten Geeks: Halfway Home

We’re now at the official halfway point of the conference season, so it seems an appropriate time to glance at player stats. We’ve already thrown around some Big Ten POY discussion, but we have enough data now that we can start to look a little deeper. Courtesy of, the following table contains the conference-only numbers for players that meet the following criteria: minute percentage above 60 percent, possession percentage above 22 percent, offensive rating above 100. These are the best of the best, the efficient possession-consumers, at least during the first half of Big Ten play. Player Poss% Ortg

Review & Preview: Every game is a Big Ten adventure

OK, are you as confused as I am? This week of upsets has turned the conference on its side and trashed most everything I thought I knew about the Big Ten. Penn State wins at Ohio State, Northwestern prevails at Wisconsin, and Nebraska dumps Indiana. And the Big Ten standings speak to that. But, hey, Michigan just keeps on winning. So, there’s a constant. Michigan State, too. Otherwise, hang on and buckle up for what could be wild February. Who will be the next upset victim? THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Michigan State. Just when it looked like injuries to

Big Ten Geeks: What Just Happened?

KenPom’s game probabilities gave Northwestern just a five percent chance of winning at Wisconsin, and it didn’t like Penn State’s chances of winning at Ohio State much better (nine percent). In one of the unlikeliest nights of Big Ten basketball you’ll ever see, both road underdogs pulled the upset, an outcome that had a combined probability of less than half a percent. How did this happen? Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria! For Penn State, the key was furious finish in which it scored 16 points on the final eight possessions of regulation. The Buckeyes had held a 10-point

Bo Ryan reacts to Northwestern's hot shooting night

What was Bo Ryan’s reaction to Northwestern draining 6-of-10 3-pointers in the second half of Wisconsin’s 65-56 loss Wednesday night at the Kohl Center? Stunned would suffice. Ryan simply couldn’t believe that the Big Ten’s worst 3-point shooting team got so hot from distance, and he was especially shocked that big man Alex Olah, who entered the night 2-of-13 from 3, hit a trey. Watch Ryan’s reaction in this post.

Dienhart: My first-half Big Ten awards

The arrival of the Super Bowl means many things to many people. Ro-tel and Velveeta dip … the end of the most wonderful time of the year … spring is approaching. For me, it means we basically are at the halfway point of the Big Ten hoop season. And I have some questions—and answers–as we start to head down the backstretch.
