Michigan vs. Wofford - 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Analysis

It’s a big day for the Big Ten, as No. 2 Michigan, No. 2 Wisconsin and No. 4 Michigan State (I still can’t believe Sparty is a No. 4!) look to punch their ticket for the Sweet 16. Here are four thoughts on today’s games: Wisconsin vs. Oregon (7:45); Michigan State vs. Harvard (8:40). Michigan took down Texas in the first game.

Photo: Wisconsin team store sells '#KARMA' shirt

Wisconsin fans will appreciate a shirt for sale at a store across from the University Book Store. It’s a simple red shirt with “#KARMA” across the chest, an obvious dig at former coach Bret Bielema’s wife, Jen Bielema. Jen famously tweeted “#karma” after the Badgers lost early last season at Arizona State, the controversial game in which the officials let time expire on Wisconsin’s final drive in enemy territory.

Big Ten Geeks: Defense on Day One

Ohio State dropped a tight one against an in-state “Little Brother,” which had to make the loss all the more frustrating. There wasn’t anything especially unique about this loss—once again, Ohio State’s offense stalled out when it had to play in the half-court. The outside shooting was tepid (3 of 12 on 3s), and the ballhandling was suspect (the Buckeyes turned it over on 21 percent of their possessions; Aaron Craft and LaQuinton Ross each had five of their own). And on the 27 occasions when Ohio State had an opportunity to rebound one of its frequent misses, Thad Matta’s team came up with the ball just three times.

Wisconsin vs. American - 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Analysis

The first full-fledged day of NCAA tournament action was a success for the Big Ten. Yes, No. 11 Iowa lost a play-in game to No. 11 Tennessee on Wednesday. And No. 6 Ohio State fell to No. 11 Dayton today. But neither loss was a stunner. But the fact the defeats came early in the tourney, it caught the attention of critics. No matter, the Big Ten’s “Big Three” opened with victories today. And they looked good doing it.
