John Groce loses his cool, draws technical foul

John Groce let us know how displeased he was with his team’s play following Wednesday night’s 66-58 loss to Purdue in Champaign. That anger came to a head on Saturday as Groce lost his cool late in the second half of Illinois’ 78-62 loss to Michigan State. https://twitter.com/BigTenNetwork/status/424762999962759168 Upset with the officiating, Groce ripped off his sport coat and threw it at his bench (see above), ultimately resulting in a technical foul.

Twitter: Best reaction to NU's win at Indiana

Just four nights ago, Indiana fans were storming the court after sending No. 3 Wisconsin to its first loss of the season. Saturday, they left Assembly Hall stunned after Indiana’s ugly 54-47 loss to Northwestern, which entered the game with only two wins all-time in Bloomington. See some of the best Twitter reaction to the upset in this post. The numbers were ugly. Indiana shot 25 percent (15-of-60) and had one player (Noah Vonleh, 17) in double figures. Make no mistake, Northwestern’s defense had plenty to do with Indiana’s struggles. In the end, this game came down to Tre Demps,

Early look at NCAA Tournament mock brackets

It’s mid-January. Seems like a good time to start taking a look at some mock NCAA brackets. Things are looking good for Wisconsin and Michigan State, which are primed to be No. 1 seeds. Michigan, Iowa and Ohio State also are solid tourney teams for now. But teams like Minnesota and Indiana may bob in and out of these mock brackets all winter. First, there’s Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com, my personal favorite because he’s a Purdue grad who studied computers and played in the All-American Marching Band. And, I know how smart those guys are, having gone to Purdue myself.

Survey says: Big Ten's toughest player

Toughness. It’s needed in any sport to be successful. And there are many definitions of toughness, which is displayed in various ways. Show me a successful team—and I’ll show you a tough team. Knowing that, I asked some writers who cover Big Ten hoops teams who they felt is the “toughest” player in the conference.

It’s time for my Big Ten basketball 3-Pointers, my look back at the week that was in the Big Ten—with a sneak peek at what’s to come. It has been a good week to be Minnesota and Indiana.

Richard Pitino tosses jacket, draws first technical foul

It was freezing cold outside in Minneapolis on Thursday night, but tempers got red hot inside the Barn during the second half of Minnesota’s upset of No. 11 Ohio State. Play began to get chippy midway through the second half as Ohio State forward LaQuinton Ross got tied up with Minnesota forward Oto Osenieks. Ross proceeded to shove Osenieks, which led to Minnesota coach Richard Pitino throwing his sport coat into the crowd and being called for his first technical foul as the Gophers’ head coach.

10 Thursday Big Ten stories to read up on

Great win for Purdue at Illinois last night. In fact, the Boilermakers may look back on that cold January night in Champaign as a turning point in a 2013-14 season that just wasn’t getting off the ground. Watch this video to learn three things Purdue beat writer Nathan Baird learned about the Boilermakers’ victory in Champaign. I learned this – OK, I already knew it – but When A.J. Hammons and Ronnie Johnson play well, Purdue is difficult to beat. And, don’t look now, but Purdue soon could be 4-2 in the Big Ten after an 0-2 start. Up next:
