Review & preview: Track the latest ups & downs

It’s good to be Ohio State … at least for this week. The Buckeyes have risen from the dead, notching two big wins in the last week to breathe life into a season that had gone terribly bad. Here’s a look back at the last week—with a peek ahead, too. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Ohio State. Just when it looked like the Buckeyes were circling the drain, they rise up. Very impressive. Ohio State had lost four in a row and five of six games, falling from 15-0 and No. 3 in the nation to out of the polls

Michigan State cruises to win over Penn State

(AP) Adreian Payne scored 12 points in his return from a foot injury, and No. 9 Michigan State kept pace atop the Big Ten with an 82-67 victory over Penn State on Thursday night. Payne hadn’t played since Jan. 7 because of a sprained foot, but although he didn’t start Thursday, he did play 18 minutes, going 5 of 9 from the field. The Spartans (20-3, 9-1 Big Ten) were still nowhere near full strength. Keith Appling, who has been dealing with a wrist problem, sat out, and Branden Dawson is still out because of a broken hand.

Terran Petteway Q&A: 'I let my game speak for itself'

The Big Ten is littered with impactful newcomers. And none has been better than Nebraska’s Terran Petteway. The 6-6 sophomore guard/forward entered the week as the conference’s top scorer in league play, averaging 19.5 points. Petteway, who averages 18.2 points on the season,  poured in 35 points vs. Minnesota on Jan. 26, which is the single-season high for any player in Big Ten action this season. No doubt, Petteway is a major reason why the Cornhuskers are surging with three victories in four games as they head to No. 10 Michigan for a big game on Wednesday night to play

Big Ten fans are very familiar with Sam Thompson soaring into the air for a highlight-reel inbound alley-oop. After all, the Ohio State junior has done it countless times over the course of his career. In Tuesday night’s win at No. 13 Iowa, however, it was Amir Williams channeling his inner Sam Thompson.

If you are like me, getting a clean read on the season makes you as confused as ever. But, don’t worry. Things will begin to crystallize … I think. Here’s my ranking of this week’s men’s basketball games. 1. Michigan at Iowa, Sat., Feb. 8. This is the game of week, ladies and gentlemen. The Wolverines sit atop the Big Ten along with Michigan State, as each has one loss. The Hawkeyes have three losses. A defeat will
