Wisconsin at Michigan State

Bo Ryan reacts to Northwestern's hot shooting night

What was Bo Ryan’s reaction to Northwestern draining 6-of-10 3-pointers in the second half of Wisconsin’s 65-56 loss Wednesday night at the Kohl Center? Stunned would suffice. Ryan simply couldn’t believe that the Big Ten’s worst 3-point shooting team got so hot from distance, and he was especially shocked that big man Alex Olah, who entered the night 2-of-13 from 3, hit a trey. Watch Ryan’s reaction in this post.

D.J. Newbill

Video: D.J. Newbill hits OT game-winner at Ohio State

Prediction: D.J. Newbill won’t soon forgot his performance in Wednesday night’s win at No. 23 Ohio State.

Even better: Newbill beat all-world defender Aaron Craft on the final dagger. Watch the shot in this post. INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: Enjoy this, @PennStateMBB fans! It's D.J. Newbill's gigantic OT game-winner. WATCH – http://t.co/wavYgpuZkS — Penn State on BTN (@BTN_Penn_State) January 30, 2014 Newbill also hit this big bucket late in

Midway Point Awards

Dienhart: My first-half Big Ten awards

The arrival of the Super Bowl means many things to many people. Ro-tel and Velveeta dip … the end of the most wonderful time of the year … spring is approaching. For me, it means we basically are at the halfway point of the Big Ten hoop season. And I have some questions—and answers–as we start to head down the backstretch. So, let’s hand it off to the Big Ten Answer Man. [ MORE: View the latest Big Ten basketball standings ] Q: What are the best games in the second half of the season? A: Oh, there are several

Did you see this: Russell Wilson billboard fail

If you had to associate Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with one university, it would probably be Wisconsin, right? That seems to be the consensus, despite the fact that Wilson spent four years at North Carolina State, before transferring to Wisconsin in 2011 for his final year of eligibility. [ MORE: See pictures of Russell Wilson at Super Bowl Media Day ] It is no secret that Wisconsin has certainly claimed the Super Bowl quarterback as one of its own. Just take a look at the team’s official Twitter feed, @BadgerFootball. Also, there’s this billboard on Capital Blvd. in Raleigh,

Reports: Philip Nelson to transfer to Rutgers

Turns out, Philip Nelson is going to stay in the Big Ten. News has broken that the disgruntled Minnesota quarterback is transferring to Rutgers, which officially will join the Big Ten for the 2014 football season. He’ll sit out next season and have two years of eligibility beginning in 2015. At the time of his transfer, Nelson said he wanted to go to a school that passed more after he hit just 50.5 percent of his passes last season with nine touchdowns and six picks.

10 Big Ten stories you should read today

A huge win for Michigan State last night at Iowa City. I didn’t think the Spartans could prevail without Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson in that hostile environment vs. that talented Hawkeyes squad. What’s more, MSU was coming off a tough home loss to Michigan. What would be its mind-set? No worries. The Spartans took care of business in what may be the program’s most impressive league triumph in two seasons. And that’s saying a lot. What a tough-as-nails Michigan State team this is, a squad that personifies its coach like few others. By the way, this ended Iowa’s 20-game

Ex-NU QB Kain Colter states case for union on Twitter

Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to further explain why he’s spearheading the effort to unionize college football and is willing to be the face of the College Athletes Players Association. Colter thinks a players union is necessary in the today’s game, to address players’ health and safety, and he’s doing all of this work to help future players. See his tweets, the first ones since the news broke, in this post. [ MORE: Dienhart: ‘I’m all for this’ players union | AD Jim Phillips responds ] We’re grateful for our education.

Dienhart: Q&A with Penn State PG Tim Frazier

This season hasn’t gone as expected for Penn State, but it’s not because of a lack of effort by point guard Tim Frazier. The 6-1, 170-pound Frazier enters the week averaging 16.5 points, ranking seventh in the Big Ten for the 10-10 Nittany Lions. He also has a Big Ten-best 128 assists, averaging 6.4 per game. No other player in the conference has over 100. And Frazier is sixth in steals with 35. Want more? He averages 4.6 rebounds. Bottom line: There are few players more well-rounded or valuable to their team than Frazier, a product of Strake Jesuit in
