Matt Painter Ejected from Game vs. Illinois

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.

Did You See This? J.J. Watt and Yao Ming photo

Wired for sound during an NFL game this season, Wisconsin product and current Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt famously told Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice: “I’ve eaten burritos bigger than you.” It was funny, because Watt, 6-5, 295 pounds, dwarfs Rice, 5-8, 212 pounds. On Tuesday, it was Watt’s turn as the burrito, if you will.

Twitter: Turner, Brust discuss big shots vs. Michigan

Ben Brust

Brust Brings The Badgers To Overtime

Right when Ben Brust’s buzzer-beater fell Saturday afternoon, it brought back memories of Evan Turner’s game-winner in the 2010 Big Ten tourney. Honestly, the two shots are that similar. Not just from the standpoint they both came against Michigan, either. Both also followed clutch shots by the Wolverines and were released from close to the same spot on the floor.

Victor Oladipo Alley-Oop, Dunk Sequence

How about the sequence Victor Oladipo compiled in the first half of Sunday’s win at No. 10 Ohio State? It was so nice, it had analyst Clark Kellogg later uttering this gem: “Victor Oladipo is like a baby’s bottom – smooth and sometimes…explosive!” Quite the description, huh? But it was accurate, as the junior showed smoothness on a reverse alley-oop layup and explosiveness on a powerful two-handed flush. Watch the sequence now and see tweets about it in this post.

Derrick Nix Takes Out Cheerleader

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Nix is 6-foot-9 and 270 pounds. Save for Nebraska’s Andre Almeida, Nix is the last guy in the Big Ten that anyone would want falling on him or her. That’s especially true when the “her” is a couple of cheerleaders. Yep, Nix accidentally took out a pair of cheerleaders on the baseline in the first half of Wednesday’s win over Minnesota. Watch Nix’s momentum take him out of bounds and the end result now.

A.J. Hammons Dunk

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It was just a few days ago that BTN analyst Tim Doyle insisted Purdue freshman A.J. Hammons is a serious threat to compete for next season’s Big Ten Player of the Year. It was a bold claim, and it’s one Doyle won’t soon regret. Certainly not after Hammons’ latest coming out party against No. 3 Indiana. It came in a blowout defeat, but, man, Hammons was terrific. There was the career-high 30 points, the five blocks, and the dunks. Watch Hammons’ third and best flush of the night now and catch the others in this post.

Big Ten Ultimate Dunker: Meet my creation

Best of Sam Thompson Dunk Montage

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Let me confess something before I start: I’m 5-foot-11, and I’ve never dunked. With that out of the way, it’s easy to understand why I’m such a big fan of the slam dunk. The number of high-flyers we currently have in the Big Ten doesn’t hurt matters, either, and it’s the reason I thought it would be fun to assemble the Big Ten’s Ultimate Dunker. Here goes.

Payne and Dawson Dunk Back to Back

NBA Hall of Famer Reggie Miller once scored eight points in 11 seconds. The Spartans had a quick – albeit less memorable – outburst of their own in Sunday’s defeat at Indiana. In a span of 3.7 seconds, Adreian Payne slammed home Travis Trice‘s miss and Branden Dawson, after stealing the ensuing inbound pass, dunked again. Yes, that’s two dunks in less than four seconds. Some teams don’t get two dunks in an entire game! Watch the sequence now.

Traevon Jackson game-winner: Good or no good?

Traevon Jackson

A Jackson Jumper Beats the Buzzer

Traevon Jackson beat the shot clock in the final seconds to lift Wisconsin past No. 14 Minnesota on Saturday. Or did he? This one was about as close as buzzer-beaters come. Remember, if the shot clock buzzer sounds and the ball has yet to leave the shooter’s hand, it’s a violation. On this play, it’s hard to tell if the ball is out of Jackson’s fingertips before the horn goes off. See for yourself in this video and check out a screengrab in this post.
