This week on “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2015” we show you what life is like for a young assistant coach when we go behind the scenes with Ohio State’s Greg Paulus. The name is familiar, isn’t it? Hint: He played at Duke. Plus, meet Iowa’s Gabe Olaseni and see his unique path from England to Iowa City. See portions of their stories in the videos in this post.

Nebraska’s Shavon Shields is sporting a new hairdo, and he did it to support his assistant coach’s sick son.
Nebraska secured perhaps the best win ever at Pinnacle Bank Arena when it took down the Badgers last night. The Huskers got 26 points from each of Shavon Shields and Terran Petteway, the latter of which is making a push to be included on the All-Big Ten 1st team.

The Big Ten office releases its Players of the Week for the final week of the regular season on Monday morning. Michigan’s Nik Stauskas and Nebraska’s Shavon Shields shared Player of the Week honors, while Indiana’s Troy Williams took home Freshman of the Week. Learn more about each player’s week and watch their highlights in this post.
Michigan clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title this weekend, as it took care of business against Minnesota at home while Michigan State was upset by Illinois in East Lansing.
We don’t think this is quite what Michael Jordan had in mind when he popularized sticking out his tongue on the basketball court. Either way, how great is this shot of Nebraska’s Shavon Shields and Ohio State’s Aaron Craft? Classic, right?
The Big Ten office released its first Players of the Week for the 2013-14 men’s basketball season Monday. The honorees include a pair of first-time winners, including Nebraska sophomore Shavon Shields, who put 28 points in an easy win over Florida Gulf Coast.

The exhibition basketball season is upon us (view our streaming schedule). Soon enough, the games will start to count. With that in mind, I thought I’d offer up my All-Big Ten Underrated Team. See my five guys in this post. Who did I miss? Tweet it my way, @BTNBrentYarina.

On Saturday, Iowa defended its home court with a win over Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes raced out to a 30-10 lead before the Badgers finally got something going on offense, though I think that early start for Wisconsin overshadows what kind of game this really was.
