Big Ten Geeks: Senior Day Already?

Penn State celebrated an early senior night (the Nittany Lions still have another home game remaining, but I guess they didn’t like their chances against Wisconsin) by rallying from an 11-point first half deficit to take down Ohio State. PSU got a big game out of junior guard D.J. Newbill (23 points, 9 shots), who had a better game than LaQuinton Ross (19 points, 12 shots). I mention those two because, outside of them, there was not a lot of offense. Tim Frazier had 16 points, but it took 12 shots to get there and it came with 6 turnovers.

Glenn Robinson III Game Winner

Needing a bucket in the final seconds to avoid an overtime loss at Purdue, whose number did John Beilein call? Nik Stauskas? Nope. Out of a timeout, and with 2.9 seconds left, the Wolverines sent the inbound pass to Glenn Robinson III. It was a dangerous pass, but Robinson III hauled it in, drove to the bucket, and put up a shot that danced on the rim before going down.

Big Ten Geeks: Who are the Gophers?

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

I’ll admit—I’ve never truly forgiven Minnesota for 2010. Back in those days, when the internet was over, it was my opinion that the Gophers should have been contending for a Big Ten championship. I wasn’t even close, as Minnesota finished the season at 9-9, and squeaked into the NCAA Tournament (the Gophers barely had enough time to check into their hotel before Xavier dispatched of them in the first round).
