Big game tonight, as Michigan plays at Ohio State. The Wolverines are tied for first place with Michigan State with a 9-2 record. But Michigan is slumping, losing two of its last three. And both defeats were on the road: at Indiana; at Iowa. Conversely, the Buckeyes are playing well, winning three in a row after losing five of six games. Here’s what to watch for tonight.
Lisa Bluder became Iowa’s all-time wins leader in the Hawkeyes’ 90-84 victory over Northwestern on Monday night.
Another week is in the books, and that means it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player of the Year tracker. Michigan State’s Gary Harris topped my initial list last week, but it’s Iowa’s Devyn Marble on top this week. Agree? Feel free to enter your thoughts in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
