Sunday featured a handful of Big Ten women’s basketball games, including No. 12 Penn State’s 66-58 victory over No. 24 Texas A&M. Overall, the Big Ten went 4-1 on the day. Catch up on all the scores, stats and recaps in this post.
Yes, Ohio State would rather be playing in Pasadena, Calif., for the national championship vs. another ACC school, Florida State. But this is still a BCS bowl vs. a very good Clemson team. And that means it’s a chance for the Buckeyes to score some credibility points and quell critics who say OSU played a soft schedule.
Sam Thompson did it again. Twice! The Buckeyes’ talented junior forward has put together quite the impressive highlight reel on eye-popping alley-oops this season. Yet somehow, opponents have yet to figure it out. Check out Thompson’s two inbound alley-oops in Saturday night’s 79-62 win over North Dakota State in this post.
It was a busy day of men’s hoops Saturday, as nine Big Ten teams were in action. The conference went 4-5 on the day, highlighted by wins from Nebraska, Ohio State, Michigan State and Wisconsin. Catch up on all the scores, stats, recaps and select video highlights in this post.
Patrick Chambers has wanted to bring basketball back to Rec Hall, and it’s happening Saturday. The Nittany Lions, for the first time since January 1996, are playing a game in the historic venue. Watch the game vs. Princeton live on BTN/BTN2Go. Check out our quick preview clip that aired prior to tip today in this post.

This is one of the better matchups of the postseason. Wisconsin—on a three-game bowl losing skid–and South Carolina—aiming for a third postseason triumph in succession–never have played, adding intrigue to this battle. Gary Andersen is looking to put his stamp on the Badger program in his first season; Steve Spurrier looks to add another brick in the wall of a strong program he has built in Columbia for a team that has wins vs. Missouri and Clemson.
