Big Ten Geeks: Oh, Canada!

Michigan survived a tough test against Florida State, a team whom not many thought much of coming into the season. This was, after all, a bad team last year that was losing its best player in Michael Snaer. But sometimes, weird things happen. In the Seminoles’ case, the player wearing the #30 jersey is clearly someone pretending to be Ian Miller. Throughout his career, Miller has been a so-so outside shooter with not much to contribute when inside the three-point line. This season, however, Miller is not only a deadeye outside shooter (44 percent on threes), but he’s been a

Big Ten Geeks: Wolverines Go Down

Most of the conference fed on cupcakes this weekend, but there were a few games of note. The best game of the weekend was Michigan’s trip to Iowa State. Sadly, it did not go as the Wolverines would have liked, although Iowa State was actually favored in this game (which calls the subsequent court-storming into question, for those who dream of joining the Fun Police). A full-strength Michigan played classic Beilein Ball, shooting a lot of threes while minimizing turnovers and shooting a high percentage on twos. And it mostly worked. The Wolverines turned it over on fewer than 16

4 B1G players appear on SI 2014 Big Board

A total of four Big Ten players were selected in the first round of this past June’s 2013 NBA Draft, and it looks like that number could go up the following year. SI.com recently released a list of the top 20 prospects for the 2014 NBA Draft and four Big Ten products appeared on the big board. Michigan sophomore forward Mitch McGary is the first Big Ten player to make the list, coming in at No. 11. [ More: 5 B1G Teams in CBB Future Power Rankings ] “McGary hustles and plays with relentless energy on every possession,” said SI

How many Big Ten stars land on DeCourcy's lists?

Sporting News and BTN correspondent Mike DeCourcy has been busy compiling his top 10 position lists. With all the talent the Big Ten returns in 2013-14, it’s only fitting that the conference boasts its share of representatives. There’s eight players, to be exact, headlined by Michigan’s Mitch McGary, the No. 1 center, and Michigan State’s Gary Harris, the No. 1 shooting guard. POINT GUARD 3. Yogi Ferrell, Indiana “As a freshman, he was mostly expected to defer to all those veterans and only occasionally to upstage them, but he is an elite athlete and capable shooter who could experience a

Harris, McGary, GR3 left off impactful sophomores list

Forget classification for a moment, Michigan’s Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III and Michigan State’s Gary Harris should be mentioned among the nation’s elite any time it comes to 2013-14 outlooks. Consequently, it was quite the surprise not to see any of the three guys featured on ESPN.com Myron Medcalf’s impactful sophomores list. Two Big Ten second-year stars were represented, in Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker (No. 2) and Indiana’s Yogi Ferrell (No. 4), and deservedly so. [ ESPN.com: See the full top 10 impactful sophomores list ] No matter the criteria, it’s hard to imagine how Harris, McGary and Robinson III

Dienhart: McGary, Robinson team up to stay on

Trey Burke announced he was leaving Michigan after two seasons. And Tim Hardaway, Jr., followed him out the door soon thereafter after three seasons in Ann Arbor. But Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III are returning after sensational freshman seasons. The duo made a joint announcement today after helping the team to a 31-8 overall record and 12-6 mark in the Big Ten before helping lead Michigan on a charge to the national championship game, where it lost to Louisville. It was the school’s first trip to the title game since it made consecutive trips in 1992 and 1993. Robinson

Harris stays; McGary, Robinson to announce today

Michigan State’s hopes to contend for a Big Ten title next season got a boost Thursday when Gary Harris announced he’s coming back for his sophomore season. Michigan announced today that freshmen Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will hold a 5:30 p.m. ET press conference to announce their decisions. Playing in the NBA is definitely a goal of mine, and something that I’ve always dreamed of, but those dreams can wait for another day,” Harris said in a statement released by the school. “I think additional experience and maturity will be huge in my development as a player. I

Just for fun: Mitch McGary on the gridiron?

The way Michigan’s Mitch McGary plays basketball, it’s only natural to envision him on a football field. At least one Michigan football assistant is guilty of it, according to MLive.com’s Kyle Meinke. That’s right, defensive coordinator Greg Mattison wouldn’t mind McGary on his defensive line. [ MLIVE.com: Mitch McGary at DE? Greg Mattison can see it ] “No question about it,” Mattison told Meinke. “I already promised he’d be a 5-technique (defensive lineman) right away and we’d get him a lot of sacks. I love him.” It’s hard not to like the Michigan freshman’s game and style. Seriously, did you

Big Ten Geeks: Weekend at Tourney's

When the dust settled on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the Big Ten had four teams standing in the Sweet Sixteen. Here are some scattered thoughts on the action, bullet-point style: Wisconsin lost exactly the way I said it would—by going cold from long range. This is a perimeter-oriented team that does not shoot all that well from the perimeter, and that means that it’s bound to go ice cold at least once every few games. Unfortunately, that came in the very first round of the Tournament. I know Marshall Henderson is outspoken and scored a lot of

Big Ten Geeks: Who are the Gophers?

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). I’ve since taken an oath of sorts, which is that I can’t believe in Minnesota until the team sorts out the defense. The Gophers have never been all that good
