Dienhart: Q&A with Wisconsin's Jared Berggren

Wisconsin big man Jared Berggren knows what’s at stake when Minnesota visits the Kohl Center on Saturday. The Badgers need a win—badly. Following a surprising 4-0 start in Big Ten play, Wisconsin has lost two games in a row, at Iowa last weekend and against Michigan State on Tuesday. Now, it’s about getting Wisconsin (13-6 overall, 4-2 in the Big Ten) back on track and finishing his standout career on a positive note with another NCAA tourney appearance. But the Badgers will face a desperate Minnesota team on Saturday that has lost three in a row. After redshirting in 2008-09, the

Today's links: Will Michigan jump up?

With top-ranked Duke going down hard, and I mean hard, last night against the Miami Hurricanes, the No. 1 ranking in the AP Poll may be there for the taking for AP No. 2 Michigan if it beats Purdue at home tonight and then prevails at Illinois on Sunday. Right now, Michigan is No. 3 in the Coaches Poll behind Duke and Kansas. So, I’m gonna begin daily links there, America. If that isn’t motivation enough for the Wolverines tonight, then last year’s loss on Senior Day to the Boilermakers should fuel Michigan’s fire. By the way, John Beilein is

Did You See This? Rodney Williams alley-oop

Since his 360 slam in mid-December, Rodney Williams has been uncharacteristically quiet on the jaw-dropping dunk front. He’s had his share of slams (watch in our Dunk Archive), but nothing to the level we’re accustom to. That changed Wednesday at Northwestern, when Williams was on the receiving end of a nice alley-oop. To be honest, the pass, from Joe Coleman, might have been as pretty as the dunk. Watch it now. [ RELATED: Want to embed video? Here’s how! ] Ladies and gentlemen, THAT is your slam of the night. Thank you, Rodney Williams. Thank you. #Gophers #withauthority — Tom

Northwestern upsets No. 14 Minnesota, 55-48

Jared Swopshire scored 16 points to lead Northwestern to a 55-48 victory over No. 14 Minnesota on Wednesday night. In a game where baskets were hard to come by at times, the Wildcats (12-8, 3-4 Big Ten) made just enough shots down the stretch to beat a ranked opponent for the second time in three games while sending the Gophers (15-4, 3-3) to their third straight loss. Alex Marcotullio made a 3-pointer midway through the second half to give Northwestern a one-point lead and start the decisive 13-2 run. Reggie Hearn scored 13 points after averaging 21 in the previous

No. 8 Indiana blows away Penn State, 72-49

Victor Oladipo scored 19 points, and Yogi Ferrell added a season-high 15 to help No. 8 Indiana rout Penn State 72-49 on Wednesday night. The Hoosiers (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten) survived a sluggish shooting first half with strong defense and used a fast second-half start to reassert their dominance in this series that has included only two home losses for Indiana.. Will Sheehey added 12 points for the Hoosiers, who matched a season-high by making 11 3s in a game. D.J. Newbill had 18 points and Jermaine Marshall finished with 12 to lead Penn State (8-11, 0-7), which has lost

Big Ten owns 5 of 10 longest Super Bowl streaks

Pop quiz: Which school has the longest streak of putting at least one player in the Super Bowl? Alabama? Florida? LSU? Nope, it isn’t a SEC school; it’s Nebraska, according to this USA TODAY story. Baltimore punter Sam Koch (2002-05) makes it 20 consecutive seasons that a former Husker player will compete in the Super Bowl. [ RELATED: Big Ten products in Super Bowl XLVII ] No school is all that close to Nebraska, either. Its closest competitors, Notre Dame and Purdue, are at 14 consecutive seasons. Something else you probably wouldn’t guess: The Big Ten accounts for half of
