Vote: Who wins Big Ten 3-point, dunk contests?

With NBA All-Star weekend festivities kicking off Friday, I thought it would be fun to compile Big Ten 3-point contest and dunk contest participants. I say it every year, and I’ll say it again: Somebody needs to make such an event a reality. It would awesome. Anyway, see my participants in this post, plus vote for your champion in both events. 3-POINT CONTEST PARTICIPANTS Ben Brust, Wisconsin – 52-130; 40 percent Gary Harris, Michigan State – 48-110; 44 percent Jordan Hulls, Indiana – 57-119; 48 percent Nik Stauskas, Michigan – 61-128; 48 percent D.J.

NCAA Brackets: What are the experts saying?

It’s time to look at the various mock brackets to see how the Big Ten is being forecast for the Big Dance. All four mock brackets that I check each week are in accord by having seven Big Ten teams in the NCAA tourney. The only other conference with as many is the Big East. The four mock brackets—entering the week–have Indiana and Michigan as No. 1 seeds. Michigan State is a No. 2 in every bracket but ESPN’s, which has the Spartans as a No. 3. Wisconsin and Ohio State are consistently a No. 4 or No. 5 seed, but CBSSport’s

Big Ten Geeks: Michigan State cruises

In the first 2013 installment of an intense rivalry, Michigan State humiliated Michigan by 23 points, a margin that belies how truly dominant Tom Izzo’s team was. The lead touched 31 points before garbage time began, and Michigan’s deep reserves made a run to bring the margin down at the final buzzer. This was something of a bizarro game, as the turnover-prone Spartans took exquisite care of the ball, while the Wolverines threw the ball all over the court. That, along with a dreadful one for 11 shooting night from Tim Hardaway Jr., was enough to limit Michigan to its worst

Big Ten links: Experts weigh in on Big Ten race

Humbled. Embarrassed. Can you think of any other words to describe No. 4 Michigan after it was shellacked at No. 8 Michigan State 75-52 last night? Credit the mighty Spartans, who looked like a No. 1 team in the nation last night. Graham Couch of the Lansing State Journal notes: The Spartans put it all together at the perfect time. Yes, that sounds about right. No doubt, Michigan State looked like a championship team last night, hitting on all cylinders in what arguably was its best effort of the season. The Final Four in Atlanta looks like a real possibility

No. 8 Michigan State throttles No. 4 Michigan

Gary Harris scored 17 points and Derrick Nix had 14 to help No. 8 Michigan State rout No. 4 Michigan 75-52 on Tuesday night, the rivalry’s first matchup of top 10 teams. The Spartans (21-4, 10-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference with No. 1 Indiana. The Wolverines (21-4, 8-4) have lost three of four, but the closely contested setbacks on the road against the Hoosiers and Wisconsin were nothing like the latest.

There’s more bad health news to report from Evanston, Ill., as graduate student and former Louisville player Jared Swopshire underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season. Swopshire, who was just featured on the latest edition of “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013,” injured the knee in the second half of Saturday’s loss at Iowa.

Today's links: All eyes on Battle of Michigan

In case you live under a rock, I am here to tell you that there’s a big, big game tonight, with No. 4 Michigan playing at No. 8 Michigan State. So, work rules dictate that I start daily links there. Spartans coach Tom Izzo is worried about Wolverine point man Trey Burke. What coach wouldn’t be? Izzo thinks Burke controls the game better than any Big Ten player in a long, long, time. Izzo also thinks the rise of Michigan is a good thing for his Spartans program. Really. He means it and said so with a straight face. Have a
