Melsahn Basabe, Devyn Marble and Zach McCabe all were freshmen in Fran McCaffery’s first season. That being the case, along with McCaffery, they have played an instrumental role in making Iowa competitive again. Since an 11-20 campaign as freshmen, the trio has helped the Hawkeyes compile a 63-40 clip, including a run to last season’s NIT title game. Before Saturday night’s game the trio was honored on Senior Night. Watch the ceremony in this post.
Jordan Morgan has helped Michigan raise a few banners at the Crisler Center. Michigan fans were able to formally thank him for his efforts prior to Saturday night’s game vs. Indiana. The lone senior on the 2014 Big Ten champions, Morgan was showered with love during his Senior Night ceremony. The appreciation meant a lot to him, too, evidenced by his eyes getting a little watery.
What a season for the Michigan Wolverines. The regular season officially came to a close in Saturday night’s 84-80 victory over Indiana, and now it’s onto the postseason for the Big Ten champs. But before the Wolverines even thought about the Big Ten tournament, they had to cut down the nets and make the celebration official. Check out photos of Michigan’s celebration in this post.
Every now and then, Troy Williams offers a glimpse into why some basketball minds think he boasts Victor Oladipo-like athleticism. The Indiana freshman had one of those moments early in the first half Saturday at No. 12 Michigan. Let’s just say, Williams didn’t care that it was Jordan Morgan’s senior night. Check out his And-1 dunk in this post.
The final weekend of the Big Ten regular season got off to an exciting start Saturday.

Catch up on all the action and video highlights in this post.
The upcoming Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament promises to be full of intrigue and potentially wide-open. Five of the last seven No. 1 seeds have won the Big Ten tourney. The last time someone lower than a No. 3 seed won it was Iowa, which turned the trick as a No. 6 seed in 2001.
