Big Ten Basketball: Jon Crispin's Top 3 players next season

The Final Four will take place on Saturday, and unfortunately for Big Ten fans, there isn’t a team from that conference left in the NCAA Tournament. Because of that, we are already looking ahead to next season. BTN Basketball Analyst Jon Crispin was put on the hot seat today and asked to pick out his top three Big Ten players heading into next season. It should be noted that this list could change as players are still able to declare for this year’s NBA Draft. With that said, here is a look at Crispin’s top three picks, and what he

Longtime Wisconsin assistant Gary Close leaves Badgers

(AP) Longtime Wisconsin assistant coach Gary Close has resigned from the Badgers basketball program. [ MORE: Read’s full release ] Close said in a statement Wednesday that it was a difficult decision, and that he told coach Greg Gard earlier this week. Close says he plans to pursue other opportunities in basketball, but that he wants his next job to give him with more flexibility to spend time with his wife and family.

Dienhart: Three biggest surprise teams of 2015-16 hoops season

Who doesn’t love a surprise? We all do. And the Big Ten basketball season was filled with some good ones. Here are my three most surprising teams of the 2015-16 season. INDIANA The Hoosiers figured to be good. But few envisioned an outright Big Ten title with a 15-3 record. But, that’s what Indiana accomplished behind the play of star senior point man Yogi Ferrell. This was the Big Ten’s top offensive squad—even with James Blackmon Jr. going down with a season-ending injury in December. But it was a selfless commitment to defense that helped propel Indiana to the unexpected

Dienhart: Lots of quarterback questions in Big Ten

The resume of Michigan State’s Connor Cook glistens. A three-year starter who finished his career as the winningest quarterback in school history with 34 victories (34-5 overall record, 23-2 vs. Big Ten opponents), Cook did it all for the Spartans during a spectacular career. The Big Ten Quarterback of the Year and the Unitas Award winner in 2015, Cook left campus as an all-time great. Now, the Spartans’ BMOC is gone. What’s next? Michigan State is one of several Big Ten squads that face a yawning hole under center. In fact, there are no less than nine schools with some

Steadied under Greg Gard, Wisconsin can build on experience

(AP) The late-game, season-ending meltdown clearly hurt. But Wisconsin can look toward a bright future once it gets over the loss to Notre Dame. All that experience gained this year by a team without a scholarship senior could pay dividends next season. “So that will be something that we can definitely use for next year, the situation that they’ve been in, the amount of minutes that they’ve played and the amount of film we’ve watched,” forward Nigel Hayes said after the 61-56 loss on Saturday night to Notre Dame in the NCAA Tournament. “So everyone should have a better grasp

Wisconsin's magic ride ends with loss to Notre Dame

Wisconsin’s magic ride ended like a kick in the gut in the Sweet 16. After leading No. 6 Notre Dame for most of the game and failing to put away the poor-shooting Fighting Irish when they had a chance, the No. 7 Badgers let it slip away with some crucial late turnovers.
