Review & Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks

If you haven’t already made an appointment for the psychiatrist’s couch, do so. The craziness that is 2014 Big Ten basketball continues with plenty more to come. Keep that straightjacket handy. Here’s my weekly look back at what we just witnessed—with a peek ahead. THREE STOCKS TO BUY 1. Wisconsin. The Badgers started 16-0, then lost five of six games. To say that self-doubt crept into the mind of Bucky is an understatement. But since that funk, Wisconsin has won four in a row, including triumphs over the likes of Michigan State (home) and Michigan (away). Welcome back, Bucky! 2.

Dienhart: Football player union case worth watching

This case of Northwestern players seeking to unionize has been fascinating, creating some strong feelings on both sides. Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter testified before the National Labor Relations Board in Chicago on Tuesday, as the players try to show they are employees of the school with the support of the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA). Today, Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald testified. The NLRB is in an information gathering stage, as it looks to see if the football players can make a cogent case. So far, that doesn’t seem to be happening.  But, CAPA lawyers for the players are trying.

Read up on Friday's Big Ten headlines

“Nebrasketball” rolls on. This time, the victim was Penn State. So, if you are keeping count in places like Gretna, Beatrice and Scottsbluff—and I know you are—that’s four victories in a row for the Cornhuskers. I think the Huskers are going to make the Big Dance. Wow. Can’t believe I just typed that. Is Tim Miles the Big Ten Coach of the Year? Yep. He is right now. By the way: Don’t you think Miles looks like Sheldon Cooper with glasses? Remember when Michigan State was struggling? No more. Not after destroying Purdue in West Lafayette, fueled by torrid shooting

Did You See This? Spartans set school record

On Thursday night Michigan State found their shooting touch against Purdue as the Spartans jumped out to 49-38 first-half lead by hitting 13 of their 19 three-point attempts. But they didn’t stop there. The Spartans finished with 17 to set a new Michigan State record for three-pointers in one game. Watch it here, and watch other plays here.

Evan Turner returns to scene of 'The Shot'

Former Ohio State standout Evan Turner was acquired by the Indiana Pacers on Thursday in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers, and Turner’s arrival in Indianapolis will surely bring back some memories. The fourth-year small forward sank an unforgettable shot against Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals in 2010. The Pacers play in that same arena – Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Look back at that shot – we dug out this feature “I Hit It To Win It” – and listen to Turner describe the entire play himself.

Dienhart: What Huskers need for NCAA bid

There hasn’t been a better story in the Big Ten this season than Nebraska. The Cornhuskers were projected by most to finish in the bottom half of the Big Ten. Why not? Questions abounded for a team that went 15-18 overall and 5-13 in the Big Ten last season. Now, the Huskers may be sitting squarely on the NCAA bubble. Let’s take a look at Nebraska’s resume. Nebraska’s stat leaders Points: T. Petteway 17.7 Rebounds: S. Shields 5.4 Assists: T. Webster 2.2 FG%: T. Petteway 44.4% FT%: T. Petteway 81.8% 3P%: T. Petteway 37.0% Steals: D. Biggs 1.0 Blocks: L.
