Welcome to the penultimate week of Big Ten basketball. And it could be the week that Wisconsin wraps up its first league regular-season title since 2007-08.
Bracketologists Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com and Joe Lunardi of ESPN.com each has eight Big Ten teams in the field. For what it's worth, no conference has more than that.
The Big Ten announced its Big Ten Men's Basketball Players of the Week on Monday. See the latest honorees inside.
Each Monday morning during the Big Ten men’s basketball season, the 14 Big Ten men’s basketball coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Monday afternoon.
Don’t look now, but Michigan State is coming on. The Spartans scored a big win on Sunday at Illinois to remain in a second-place tie in the Big Ten and to polish an NCAA resume. MSU has come to life since a home loss to Illinois on Feb. 7. MSU was 3-3 in its last six games after that defeat to the Illini, and some wondered if this was an NCAA team. Since then, Michigan State has won four in a row. This team appears to be peaking at just the right time. *** Speaking of MSU … Nice piece
Two more weeks. That's all that remains in the 2014-15 Big Ten men's basketball regular season. Before we look ahead, Tom Dienhart highlights the best of the week that was.
Nebraska has lost five in a row and seven of its last eight, so it's only normal for Tim Miles and the Huskers to be disappointed and frustrated.
Rutgers has lost 11 straight games, dating to its upset of Wisconsin on January 11. Don’t tell Scarlet Knight that. The Rutgers mascot is trying to keep spirits up around Piscataway, after all. Minutes after the Scarlet Knights’ 84-54 loss to Indiana, the mascot videobombed BTN’s postgame interview with Indiana coach Tom Crean. It wasn’t just any videobomb, though. Scarlet Knight positioned himself perfectly behind Crean before executing a few creative moves. Check it out in the video above.
