Another Ohio State game, another opportunity for Aaron Craft to amaze fans with his all-out hustle. While the latest example came in Sunday’s home loss vs. No. 20 Iowa, Craft’s effort to save a ball under his own basket can’t be ignored. Not only did he save the ball, he went airborne – as he often does – and took out a cheerleader who was seated right under the basket. Watch the hustle play in this post.
Sunday featured a trio of Big Ten men’s basketball games. There were two huge upsets as No. 20 Iowa got the best of No. 3 Ohio State in Columbus, while Northwestern upset No. 23 Illinois in Evanston. Purdue held off Nebraska for its first Big Ten win in the other game.
It was a busy day on the Big Ten women’s hardwood, as 10 of the conference’s 12 teams are in action. The highlight of the day? That would be No. 21 Purdue going on the road and upsetting No. 14 Penn State, 84-74. Catch up on all the scores, stats and recaps in this post.
