Indiana is playing well, positioned for an NCAA berth. And the Hoosiers can thank junior Yogi Ferrell. IndyStar.com’s Zach Osterman had a recent mail bag question that asked: Will Yogi leave for the NBA after this season? If he is projected as a first-rounder, it may be difficult not to leave. Much may depend on how well IU finishes the season and how far Ferrell can carry the Hoosiers. *** Iowa? Iowa! That’s two losses in a row for the Hawkeyes, who fell in overtime at Northwestern on Sunday. Not long ago, I thought Iowa was primed to show it
Another week is in the books, and it was another opportunity for Wisconsin to prove its case as the Big Ten's runaway leader.

Coaching, no doubt, is frustrating and stressful. It’s nothing compared to watching your son coach.

Penn State coach Pat Chambers continues to have issues with Big Ten officiating. Following Saturday night’s 76-73 loss vs. No. 19 Maryland, Chambers was irate about an offensive foul called with 1:50 left in a game. The Terrapins led, 70-68, when Penn State center Jordan Dickerson set a screen and appeared to be pulled down by Maryland forward Evan Smotrycz. However, officials whistled Dickerson for an offensive foul–his fifth of the game. Maryland subsequently scored on a layup to push its lead to four. “That was the worst call I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Chambers said after the
