Illinois: B The Illini have probably hit par, by going 11-2 in the non-conference schedule. By doing so, the team really hasn’t moved any closer or further away from an at-large berth. Coming into the season, we thought it was more likely than not that Illinois would miss the Tournament. With the Illini hovering at around 50 in the Pomeroy ratings, that still looks right—but there will be plenty of chances

Big Ten Whiteboard: Let's get ready for Big Ten play!

The calendar is about to flip from 2013 to 2014. And the hoops season is about to flip from non-conference play to Big Ten action.

Here’s what to look for in my first edition of Whiteboard. GAME OF THE WEEK: Iowa at Wisconsin, Sunday. The Badgers are atop the Big Ten with a 13-0 mark, rating with Ohio State as the Big Ten’s lone unbeaten teams. Some feel this may be

Branden Dawson wows on two must-see dunks

Michigan State junior Branden Dawson is a high-flyer. We’ve known it for a few seasons, but a knee injury late in his freshman campaign has limited his opportunities to show off his athleticism. In Tuesday night’s win over North Florida, Dawson was at his best. And it all started right out of the gate, too. Like, on the opening tip. Watch Dawson’s two ridiculous dunks in this post. Here’s the dunk right off the tip: VIDEO: No better way to start a game than this. Thank you, @MSU_Basketball & Branden Dawson. #orvillemoment WATCH – http://t.co/rroWDfA6nB — Michigan St. on BTN

Big Ten Geeks: Fun with shot data

You can tell a lot about an offense based on its shot selection. Does it force the ball inside? Does it take a lot of threes? The most efficient offenses will thrive on layups, dunks, and open threes. It’s still early, but we can look at shot distribution data (courtesy of hoop-math.com) to get a feel for a team’s offensive tendencies. Here’s the complete data for the Big Ten, with teams sorted from least jump-shot-happy to most jump-shot-happy. Team %shots at rim %shots 2-pt jumpers %shots 3-pointers Indiana 53.8 19.1 27.1 Michigan St. 45.4 21.2 33.3 Ohio St. 42.1 21.5 36.4
