Video: See making of 2014 Final Four court

Three Big Ten teams are one weekend, or two wins, away from advancing to the 2014 Final Four at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The court is ready for the event, and there’s a great time-lapse video of its construction, courtesy of Connor Sports. See the court that Big Ten teams hope they will be playing on Saturday, April 5, and Monday, April 7, in this post.

Photo: Notice the error on this Aaron Craft jersey?

Check out what is on sale at a Foot Locker in Columbus, Ohio. Yes, that’s an Aaron Craft Nike alternate jersey, which is no surprise. But, take a closer look. It doesn’t take an English teacher to spot the spelling gaffe. @darrenrovell Jersey being sold at a Foot Locker on Ohio State's campus pic.twitter.com/r2k4VNPKra — Brett Spivack (@BrettSpivack) March 24, 2014 Prediction: Ohio State fans won’t soon be forming “O-I-H-O.” On an unrelated note, this throwback alternate is great, so much so that Nike and Ohio State should make it the Buckeyes’ primary look. h/t: LostLettermen About Brent Yarina BTN.com

Photo: Iowa women put 'Team Pat' on shoes for NCAA play

The Iowa women’s basketball team wants Fran McCaffery’s son Patrick, 14, to know they’re thinking of him during his tough time. So, the Hawkeyes affixed “Team Pat” stickers to their flashy gold shoes for Sunday night’s NCAA tourney opener to support the younger McCaffery, who had a thyroid tumor removed last week that was malignant. [ MORE: Dienhart: McCaffery news hit us all hard ] Talk about a classy gesture. Well done, Hawkeyes! The team looked good on the court, too, downing Marist, 87-65, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. In my office a few hours before our NCAA tip, feeling blessed. Team

Video: Nike, Illinois talk uniform redesigns

If you haven’t heard, Nike is in the process of rebranding Illinois’ athletic uniforms. The new designs will be unveiled April 16 and worn during the 2014 academic year. IlliniProductionsHD, Illinois’ YouTube channel, recently posted a video of Nike Creative Director Todd Van Horn and Illinois AD Mike Thomas talking about the new designs. ***

Photo: Wisconsin team store sells '#KARMA' shirt

Wisconsin fans will appreciate a shirt for sale at a store across from the University Book Store. It’s a simple red shirt with “#KARMA” across the chest, an obvious dig at former coach Bret Bielema’s wife, Jen Bielema. Jen famously tweeted “#karma” after the Badgers lost early last season at Arizona State, the controversial game in which the officials let time expire on Wisconsin’s final drive in enemy territory. At the time, the Bielemas and Arkansas were feeling confident, with the Razorbacks jumping out to a 3-0 record in the coach’s first season since leaving Madison. Arkansas would go on

Photo: Maryland puts B1G logo on football jersey

It will be an official member of the Big Ten on July 1, so it only makes sense that Maryland would put the B1G patch on its football jersey for the team’s 2014 photo shoot. See what the patch looks like on Maryland’s new all-red Pride 2.0 uniform in this post. We. Get. Touchdowns! pic.twitter.com/JbggFGACzC — Maryland Athletics (@umterps) March 12, 2014

Indiana, others to wear new adidas unis in postseason

The Big Ten tournament will feature a few new uniforms, thanks to adidas outfitting Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin with special “Made in March” alternates. The uniforms were designed to pay tribute to the unique history of the schools and, according to the official release, “provide the teams with the most advanced uniform system and basketball apparel technology so they can take on the challenges and intense play of March.” [ MORE: Here’s a look at all of adidas’ “Made in March” uniforms ] Michigan and Wisconsin agreeing to don an alternate design for the postseason is no big shock. Both

Photo: Check out these OSU alternate uniforms concepts

Alternate uniforms are one of the biggest fads throughout today’s college football world. Athletic apparel powerhouses such as Nike, Adidas and Under Armour have created plenty of loud, eye-popping jerseys over the past several years. As impressive as some of those jersey designs have been, Dettrick Maddox, a design star who goes by @MrDesignJunky on Twitter, is raising the bar with some of his recent alternate uniform design concepts. One of Mr. Junkie’s recent creations is an Ohio State Nike concept look. The uniform consists of a grey, white and red combination with the Ohio State “O” in the center

Nebraska unveils new adidas throwback uniform

Nebraska has unveiled a new cream throwback uniform for Saturday’s Legends Weekend game vs. Northwestern. The uniform, designed by adidas, will honor Nebraska’s 1911-12 team, which went 14-1 and won the Missouri Valley Conference. See a photo of the uniform in this post. Cream is a bold color, and I like it. It’s not a look we’re used to seeing in basketball, but baseball teams, like TCU and Oklahoma, have worn cream throwbacks/alternates in recent years. This marks the Huskers’ second special uniform this season. They have also donned this black alternate. According to Nebraska, other than the length of

Wildcats have Twitter handles on back of shooting shirts

Northwestern men’s basketball players have their Twitter handles printed on the back of their shooting shirts for Saturday night’s game vs. Indiana. The Wildcats did the same thing last year – in addition to putting hashtags all over Welsh-Ryan Arena – for their Social Media Night. In addition to the Twitter handles on the shooting shirts, the Wildcats will be wearing their black alternates, which means Indiana will be in white as the road team. The #B1GCats have their Twitter handles on their shooting shirts tonight. pic.twitter.com/YKrF8OtcMJ — NU Men's Basketball (@NUMensBball) February 22, 2014
