NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Tournament-Ohio State vs Michigan

Dienhart: Michigan should be 'confident, cocky'

INDIANAPOLIS — Michigan comes at foes in waves. Ready or not, here come the Wolverines. And, god bless if you aren’t ready, because you’ll be run off the floor, up the ramp and out the door. The start of today’s game with Ohio State was a perfect example. There was … A Nik Stauskas three-pointer. A Glenn Robinson III three-pointer. A Caris LeVert three-pointer. Two GR3 jumpers. A Jordan Morgan slam. Just like that, it was 15-2 with only 4:25 off the clock. Thad Matta hadn’t even broken a sweat and his offensively challenged team already was in a deep

Purdue sophomore PG Ronnie Johnson to transfer

Official word came from Purdue coach Matt Painter on Saturday. “Ronnie has expressed his interest in transferring from our program and we have granted him his release,” Painter said in the team release. “We wish Ronnie the best of luck as he continues to pursue his education and basketball career.” Honestly, this is not a huge loss. With Johnson the past two seasons, Purdue compiled consecutive 15-17 records. Johnson remained a work-in-progress who never really developed into a
