Did You See This? Thompson's 360-degree jam

Ohio State’s Sam Thompson has proven to be a master dunker this season, and he put on a bit of a show on Thursday night in the win over Northwestern. After a tight game that went back and forth (full coverage here), the Buckeyes pulled ahead late. And that’s when Thompson executed an uncontested 360-degree dunk. See it in the video in this post. Plus, check out out two more dunks from Thompson on Thursday in the post. ***

Northwestern at Ohio State

No. 13 Buckeyes hold on to beat Wildcats

Deshaun Thomas scored 22 points and No. 13 Ohio State used a late 12-0 run to beat Northwestern 69-59 on Thursday night, the Buckeyes’ 32nd consecutive home win against the Wildcats. Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 12 points – all in the first half – with Sam Thompson adding 11 and Amir Williams a career-high 10 for the Buckeyes (18-6, 8-4 Big Ten). Pesky Northwestern (13-12, 4-8) led throughout the second half despite having only seven scholarship players due to injuries.

Next 'Journey': MSU's Harris, Maize Rage & Brust

Bo Ryan

Dienhart: Look out for these lurking Badgers

We may be witnessing Bo Ryan’s best coaching job in 12 seasons at Wisconsin. And that’s saying a lot. Ryan, 65, has taken what Dick Bennett started—and elevated it to another level. Ryan’s teams never have finished lower than fourth in the Big Ten and have made the NCAA tourney each season and advanced as far as the Elite Eight in 2004-05. He also has two Big Ten regular-season titles and a .711 Big Ten winning percentage that is the best in league history.

Today's links: Spin through Big Ten's headlines

Seeing as how this is Valentine’s Day, I’ll start with this heart-warming tale of the enduring marriage of Minnesota coach Jerry Kill and his wife Rebecca. OK. My Valentine’s Day obligations have been met. On to the daily links, including a look at an uphill fight for Ohio State, an update on the slipping Gophers, an uptick for the Illini, and more. If Ohio State wants to win a fourth consecutive Big Ten title, it faces an uphill battle. And it will need a big week to stay in the race. The Buckeyes get Northwestern tonight, then visit Wisconsin over the

Did You See This? Matt Painter gets booted

Entering Wednesday night’s game at Illinois, Purdue had lost three of its last four contests. That being the case, Matt Painter and his staff were probably already a little frustrated before things tipped. And that frustration only got worse as Purdue couldn’t hold onto the ball (16 turnovers) and allowed offensive rebound after offensive rebound (22). Eventually, it all boiled over. [ RELATED: Want to share a BTN.com video? Here’s how! ] With 8:08 left and Purdue trailing 64-46, Painter decided he had seen enough and was hit with a pair of quick technical fouls to earn an ejection. But,

D.J. Richardson & Tracy Abrams

Illinois tops Purdue, snaps eight-game funk in series

D.J. Richardson scored 18 points and Illinois opened up a big first-half lead that buried Purdue 79-59 on Wednesday night. The win was the third straight for Illinois (18-8, 5-7 Big Ten), which is clawing its way back into the postseason picture. The other wins were resume-builders over No. 1 Indiana and then-No. 18 Minnesota. A dunk by Tyler Griffey with 8:46 remaining put Illinois up 64-46. The margin was too much for a Boilermakers team that had already tried to dig out of a 16-point first-half hole. Griffey scored 12 points and Joseph Bertrand had a career-high 12 rebounds.

Christian Watford

No. 1 Indiana starts slow, blows away Nebraska

Cody Zeller scored 16 points and Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 1 Indiana pull away from Nebraska 76-47 on Wednesday night. The Hoosiers (22-3, 10-2 Big Ten) have won seven of eight and regained a share of the league lead. They are tied with Michigan State. [ RELATED: Indiana “very unlikely” to ever wear adidas alternates ] But it sure wasn’t easy against Nebraska (12-13, 3-9), which frustrated Indiana by limiting possessions and repeatedly taking the shot clock inside of 10 seconds in the first half.

Video: Watch our Victor Oladipo dunk montage

On our “Tip-Off Show” leading up to No. 1 Indiana’s victory over Nebraska on Wednesday, we aired a Victor Oladipo dunk montage. We’ve done this a couple times this season, already featuring Sam Thompson and Rodney Williams. Like those two highlight packages, this one doesn’t disappoint. Watch the Oladipo dunk reel right here. [ RELATED: Victor Oladipo on pace to make Big Ten history ] Not too bad. And we’re thrilled to see it even includes the ridiculous missed alley-oop against Michigan, which would have been the dunk of the year. There isn’t a player in the nation who’s improved

Indiana 'highly unlikely' to wear alternate uniforms

Indiana fans will love what AD Fred Glass told reporters Wednesday. According to Inside the Hall’s Justin Albers, Glass said it’s “highly unlikely” Indiana will ever wear any adidas alternate uniform. Adidas, of course, has put Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin in its new “bleed out” uniform, the design the company introduced during the NBA marathon on Christmas Day. [ VIDEO: Watch our Victor Oladipo dunk montage ] Glass’ reasoning? “The IU men’s basketball uniform is iconic,” he told Albers. That it is. This news will please many Hoosiers fans who saw the picture of what looks to be an Indiana
