The consensus is that Indiana’s Noah Vonleh, Michigan’s Nik Stauskas, and Michigan State’s Gary Harris and Adreian Payne are all first-round locks. Michigan’s Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III could also be first-round selections. But where will these former Big Ten stars call home?

Noah Vonleh's huge hands steal day at NBA Combine

Noah Vonleh’s hands are huge. Put it this way: Only one player (Greg Smith, 2011) has had wider hands than Vonleh (11 3/4″) since hand width was first recorded at the NBA draft combine in 2010. That being the case, it’s easy to see why the Big Ten Freshman of the Year received so much attention Friday in Chicago. See pictures of Vonleh’s hands in this post.

Yogi Ferrell

Troy Williams Thunder Junkie

The upcoming Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament promises to be full of intrigue and potentially wide-open. Five of the last seven No. 1 seeds have won the Big Ten tourney. The last time someone lower than a No. 3 seed won it was Iowa, which turned the trick as a No. 6 seed in 2001.

Iowa at Minnesota - Men's Basketball Highlights

Minnesota propelled itself back into the field of 68 with a decisive win over Iowa at home. The Gopher defense has been much-maligned this season (this is the second-worst defense in the Big Ten), but that doesn’t matter when you shoot 58 percent from 3 and 63 percent on 2s.

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.
