Dienhart: Iowa eyes first Big Ten crown since 1979

B.J. Armstrong never did it. Neither did Acie Earl, Ed Horton, Les Jepsen, Dean Oliver, Reggie Evans, Ryan Bowen, Kevin Gamble or Andre Woolridge, among other former Iowa greats over the last 35 years. Not one of those studs won a Big Ten regular-season championship. In fact, no Iowa player has won a Big Ten regular-season crown since 1978-79, when the Hawkeyes were tri-champs with Purdue and Michigan State. The 1979-80 Hawkeyes didn’t win the Big Ten but did advance to the Final Foul, fueled by the great Ronnie Lester. Since then, big-time success has been elusive. Listen to coach

Merriman: My Mount Rushmore of B1G hoops players

Who would make your Mount Rushmore of Big Ten basketball players? That has been a common question asked after four-time NBA MVP LeBron James selected Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson. The same question can be posed to Big Ten fans. With so many good options, it is tough to choose just four top players in Big Ten basketball history. With that said, we wanted to make it a little easier for you. In honor of Presidents Day, here is my team-by-team breakdown of who would make Mount Rushmore. Big Ten Mount Rushmore (All Time) Magic Johnson,

Big Ten Geeks: I can see for Miles

Indiana’s season reached a new low in Saturday’s drubbing at Purdue. The Boilermakers busted the game open after intermission, and the one thing that had been a relative constant for the Hoosiers–a solid defense–went by the wayside. To be fair, some of this was just Purdue having a fantastic afternoon from the perimeter (10-for-18 on threes), but Indiana didn’t offer much resistance either. Even more impressive for the Boilermakers was that this outburst came largely without contributions from A.J. Hammons, who scored just five points and was mostly invisible on the floor (at least as invisible as a man that

Nebraska's Connie Yori returned home Sunday evening

Nebraska women’s basketball coach Connie Yori returned home early Sunday evening after a brief stop at a Lincoln hospital for precautionary tests Sunday afternoon. Yori fainted on the sideline near the 12-minute mark in the second half of the Huskers’ win over Indiana at Pinnacle Bank Arena earlier in the day. NU went on to win the game, 76-61, with Associate Head Coach Sunny Smallwood leading the defense and Assistant Coach Dayna Finch guiding the offense. Yori, who walked off the court under her own power, was suffering from an infection and dehydration. She rested comfortably at home last night.

B1G Whiteboard: Michigan-MSU again, anyone?

By all accounts, this week lacks much pizzazz. The one saving grace: The menu features what looks to be a de facto Big Ten championship game on Sunday, with Michigan State visiting Michigan. Both teams are coming off home losses Sunday – outcomes that have opened up the Big Ten title race. As a result, Iowa is one loss behind the co-leaders and has a big week. Game of the week: Michigan State at Michigan, Sun., Feb. 23. This is the game we’ve all been waiting for. While the rest of the Big Ten has been a jumbled mess, the

Here are 10 Big Ten stories to check out today

Michigan and Michigan State had been immune to most of the zaniness that has come to define this Big Ten season. But all that ended on Sunday for the league’s first-place teams. First, the Wolverines got dumped at home by Wisconsin. Michigan never really was in the game, trailing 35-19 at halftime. Caris LeVert was excellent, but Glenn Robinson and Nik Stauskas have to do more. They combined for 21 points on 9-of-20 shooting. And neither hit a three-pointer. *** The Badgers’ Frank Kaminsky was an unstoppable force, notching 25 points and 11 rebounds. He made sure the slow start
