Video: Nik Stauskas hits 3s with cabbage, watermelon, other things

It's still the offseason in the NBA, and Nik Stauskas remains busy trying to raise money and awareness for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). He recently was on TSN's "Off the Record," drilling 3-pointers with random items, including a football, cabbage and watermelon.

Tom Izzo, Bo Ryan, John Beilein top Athlon's Big Ten coach ranking

The only thing deeper than the Big Ten in the 2015-16 basketball season might be the conference’s collection of coaches. There’s no shortage of big-name, respected coaches, some of who are among the best of the best in the nation. And, there’s plenty of up-and-coming coaches, to boot. Fact is, it doesn’t get better than Michigan’s John Beilein, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, Ohio State’s Thad Matta and Wisconsin’s Bo Ryan, among others, anywhere across the nation. How do these guys, all 14 of them, stack up with one another, though? It’s a daunting task to try to rank them, but

Watch former Michigan basketball star Nik Stauskas do the weather

Former Michigan basketball player and current Philadelphia 76ers guard Nik Stauskas is a man of many talents. The 2014 Big Ten Player of the Year can play basketball, obviously, but he also can do the weather in a pinch. Stuaskas got the opportunity to stand in front of the green screen while visiting Breakfast Television Vancouver on Wednesday morning. And, all things considered, he did pretty well. The best part? This moment was tough to top: “Fort, uh, what is that?” Stauskas asked, while delivering the current temperatures, listed in Celsius, about Ft. McMurray. “I’ve never heard of that before.” Stauskas

Big Ten men's basketball teams show off new uniforms for 2015-16

With just under two months before the 2015-16 basketball season tips, Big Ten teams are starting to unveil new uniforms. Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska and Wisconsin are the first ones to show off their new designs, while a representative Purdue said that they are expected to unveil new uniforms in the near future. Let’s take a quick look at the changes: The Wolverines, in their final season with adidas, will wear a uniform that will draw its share of headlines for the interesting design just below the waistband. This isn’t the first time adidas has done something, um, different around

Eight Big Ten men's hoops programs land on CBSSports.com's map

If there’s one thing fans like during the offseason, it’s maps that select the best college program in every state. CBSSports.com published its map of the top men’s basketball program in each state Wednesday, and several Big Ten teams were recognized. The Big Ten, which includes 11 states, featured eight winners, most of them pretty obvious: Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State and Wisconsin. See what CBSSports says about these eight programs. That leaves Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and Rutgers as Big Ten programs left off this list. Biggest snub, if you will, of the

Three Big Ten stars make Sporting News' preseason All-America Team

Sporting News columnist and BTN contributor Mike DeCourcy released his preseason All America Team on Monday, and three Big Ten standouts received recognition. Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes earned top billing, making DeCourcy’s first team, along with North Carolina’s Marcus Paige, Iowa State’s Georges Niang, Virginia’s Brodgon and Wichita State’s Ron Baker. The Big Ten’s other representatives were star point guards, with Indiana’s Yogi Ferrell and Maryland’s Melo Trimble named to the second and third teams, respectively. All three of these players are worthy of inclusion, of course, however it seems Trimble is a little undervalued. We’re talking about the point

Roy Marble will be remembered as one of the greatest players in Iowa basketball history. The former Hawkeye great died Friday at the age of 48 following a yearlong battle with cancer. After starring for four years at Iowa, Marble left college as the Hawkeyes’ all-time leading scorer.
