Big Ten Geeks: Narrative no more

Up until Saturday, plenty of college basketball fans appreciated Bo Ryan’s coaching ability in a patronizing, half-insulting kind of way. Yes, he’s a fantastic Big Ten coach, that much is beyond dispute. But… This statistically-bland fact fed all sorts of terrible sports narratives. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because he doesn’t recruit enough talent. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because his slow-down style of basketball is a parlor trick exposed by elite teams. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because referees outside the Big Ten don’t fall for his sideline pleas and

Jordan Morgan passes out 'Thank Yous' on Twitter

There are few classier acts than Michigan big man Jordan Morgan, who saw his career end with the heart-breaking loss to Kentucky in the Elite Eight in Indianapolis on Sunday. Morgan was a glue-guy whose production in the pivot was a boon for a team that had to play almost the entire season without Mitch McGary. Morgan took to Twitter (@JustJMo) after the loss yesterday to give thanks. Thank you to all my teammates this year. This is the most fun I've had playing basketball. You all made it a truly incredible year… — Jordan Morgan (@JustJMo) March 31, 2014

Here are 10 Big Ten stories to read today

Still trying to catch your breath after that wild weekend of hoops games? The Big Ten had a great chance to get three teams into the Final Four. Alas, only one made it: Wisconsin, perhaps the least likely of all. Regardless, the Badgers will take on a red-hot Kentucky, which has won 10 NCAA games in a row. At this point, don’t think Wisconsin can’t win this whole shebang. This is a connected team that’s as well-coached as any in America. It’s also a loose team with no pressure. They aren’t supposed to be here, remember? *** Michigan and Michigan

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Michigan State Practice

Merriman: Remember Appling's career for all he did right

Upset. Frustrated. Disappointed. Those are some tough words to describe a 22-year-old kid. That’s exactly what Keith Appling was when he committed to play basketball for Tom Izzo back in August 2008. A tough, gritty kid from inner-city Detroit, Appling came to Michigan State because he wanted to play in a Final Four – an experience that every four-year player under Tom Izzo had experienced until this season. Appling arrived in East Lansing with monumental expectations. A McDonald’s All-American, the guard gave MSU fans a taste of what was to come in the 2009 Michigan High School Basketball Championship game,

Dienhart: It was a 'great run' by Michigan

Breathless. There is no better word to describe the Michigan-Kentucky Elite Eight game in the Midwest Region in Indianapolis. The game epitomized what has been a thrilling NCAA tourney. Up and down the court they went in a game that seemed to be played at 120 mph at times. It was a track meet inside Lucas Oil Stadium, as the teams traded runs, momentum and plenty of punches. Each took turns grabbing the lead … and then losing it. And it all was wrapped inside a tight, 40-minute drama-packed package. [ MORE: UConn upsets Michigan State | Dienhart: Unfinished business

Kentucky denies Michigan second straight Final Four

(AP) Aaron Harrison made a 3-pointer from NBA range with 2.3 seconds left Sunday to lift Kentucky to a 75-72 win over Michigan and a trip to the Final Four. Harrison, one of five freshmen on eighth-seeded Kentucky’s starting lineup, elevated over Caris LeVert, and drained it. He scored all 12 of his points over the last 8:05. Nik Stauskas, who scored 24 points, missed a heave at the buzzer and the Wildcats (28-10) rushed off the bench and dogpiled Harrison at midcourt.Kentucky plays Wisconsin Saturday in Texas.

Dienhart: Unfinished business for Michigan State

And just like that, Michigan State’s season is over. Finished. Kaput. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. But, in some ways, this seems like a fitting end to season that forever will be marked by what-ifs. It was the season of unfinished business. Go back to Selection Sunday. Way back then, the Spartans were the darlings of the day, the pick of many to advance to the Final Four—and some thought Michigan State would win it all despite a No. 4 seeding that everyone on the planet thought was too low.

UConn upsets Michigan State, 60-54, in Elite Eight

(AP) Shabazz Napier scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half, and UConn beat Michigan State 60-54 to return to the Final Four a year after the Huskies were barred from the NCAA tournament. Napier hit three huge free throws with 37.6 seconds left in the East Regional final at Madison Square Garden to carry UConn to the Final Four just as Kemba Walker did in Napier’s freshman year. The Huskies (30-8) rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to become the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in

Photo: John Harbaugh dons Michigan State hat

John Harbaugh’s brother, Jim, is a former Michigan quarterback, and his brother in-law, Tom Crean, is the Indiana basketball coach. So, when the CBS cameras caught the Baltimore Raves head coach wearing a Michigan State hat during the team’s Elite Eight game Sunday afternoon, it had people talking. John seemed to be enjoying himself, too. He was seated directly to the right of Magic Johnson, after all. The next family gathering should be interesting, huh? Speaking of the Harbaughs, in recent years, Jim has visited the Hoosiers, whether it be to offer a helping hand on the bench or to
