Big Ten mailbag: Tourney outlook & signing day

Time to reach into my mail bag, as we head toward the halfway point of the hoop season and look forward to Signing Day on Wednesday. So, without further delay, let’s dig right in and start with a question about … Northwestern basketball? Yep. I love it. How good do you think Northwestern could have been this year if the lineup was: Dave Sobolewski, Reggie Hearn, JerShon Cobb, Drew Crawford and Jared Swopshire? – Curtis Ah, the old woulda, shoulda, coulda game. Do you really wanna torture yourself with that? OK. I think the Wildcats would have had a great

Super Seven: Who can bring the intimidation?

Basketball isn’t all about shooting, rebounding, passing and setting picks. Intimidation also is a factor. Remember those “Bad Boys” Detroit Pistons teams that won world titles? There’s nothing like having a rough and rugged player who strikes fear into opponents. His presence creates operating room for teammates, while also commanding respect from foes. In their prime NBA players like Charles Oakley, Anthony Mason, Bill Laimbeer and Maurice Stokes personified intimidation, setting a tone and standard that still stands today. The Big Ten has several players who bring an intimidation factor to the court. Here’s a look at the seven most intimidating

Today's links: Michigan, Indiana showdown ahead

No. 1 Michigan took care of business in emphatic fashion vs. Northwestern last night to become the first Big Ten team to the 20-win mark. So, I’m gonna start daily links there, OK? Not impressed by the Wolverines’ thumping of the Wildcats? Well, you had to be wowed by how No. 3 Indiana destroyed Purdue by 37 points, giving the Boilermakers their worst home loss … ever. That sets up a titanic showdown on Saturday night between the Wolverines and Hoosiers in Bloomington. Let the hype begin, says Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star.

Video: Watch A.J. Hammons' big night, dunk-a-thon

It was just a few days ago that BTN analyst Tim Doyle insisted Purdue freshman A.J. Hammons is a serious threat to compete for next season’s Big Ten Player of the Year. It was a bold claim, and it’s one Doyle won’t soon regret. Certainly not after Hammons’ latest coming out party against No. 3 Indiana. It came in a blowout defeat, but, man, Hammons was terrific. There was the career-high 30 points, the five blocks, and the dunks. Watch Hammons’ third and best flush of the night now and catch the others in this post. [ RELATED: Want to
