Did You See This? Thad Matta 'Semi-Pro' reference

Without ever seeing Thad Matta’s DVD collection or Netflix queue, it’s safe to say he’s watched Will Ferrell’s “Semi-Pro” a time or two. He’s had to, because the coach referenced one of the movie’s most popular catchphrases in Sunday’s postgame press conference following No. 14 Ohio State’s victory over No. 2 Michigan. The phrase: “E.L.E,” or “Everybody Love Everybody.” Watch Matta’s Hollywood reference now.

Sam Thompson

Just another Sam Thompson highlight jam

I must admit, it’s getting very, very hard to write something creative each time Sam Thompson leaps out of the gym and delivers an incredible dunk (view his highlight reel). So for the sake of saving your time, do yourself a favor and watch the sophomore’s latest effortless alley-oop. And this one was extra sweet, because it provided an important two points in a close victory over heated rival Michigan.

No. 14 Ohio State sends No. 2 Michigan to first loss

Deshaun Thomas had 20 points and scored the first and last baskets in a 16-0 first-half spurt to help No. 14 Ohio State beat second-ranked Michigan 56-53 on Sunday, denying the Wolverines their first No. 1 ranking in more than 20 years. After Trey Burke, who led the Wolverines (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) with 15 points, hit a 3-pointer to open the game, the Buckeyes took the lead for good although there were many nervous moments by the finish. Burke had a shot to tie the game with 17 seconds left, but it rattled around and out. [ BOX |

Vote: Which Wisconsin dunk was best?

Wisconsin is known for its methodical offense, strong defense and significant homecourt advantage. It is not known for its play above the rim or for registering a bunch of jaw-dropping dunks. That wasn’t case in Saturday’s win over Illinois, when the Badgers totaled four huge dunks, including this Sam Dekker beauty.

Steve Stricker attends Illini game ... in Badgers' hat

This might rub some Illinois fans wrong. Illinois alum and PGA star Steve Stricker attended Saturday afternoon’s Illinois-Wisconsin game in, of all things, a Wisconsin hat. BTN cameras even caught him cheering for the Badgers at one point. But before Illini fans get too mad, realize this: Stricker was born and raised in Wisconsin and his wife went to Wisconsin, where her father spent 26 years as the golf coach. Or maybe, it’s a location thing, because the link below shows Stricker in an Illini hat at Assembly Hall: @BTNBrentYarina @PGATour Here's Stricker at last year's #Illini #Badgers game in
