It was an entertaining day of hoops Sunday, with No. 3 Michigan dropping Illinois, No. 8 Indiana taking down No. 11 Michigan State and Purdue outlasting Iowa in OT. After all the action, of course, it was the debut of the latest episode of "The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013."

This week,we take a look at the legacy of former Iowa basketball player Chris Street on the 20th anniversary of his tragic passing.  Also, we feature Indiana's Tom Crean and Michigan assistant  Bacari Alexander.

Josh Reed of the Big Ten Geeks recently took at look at the Minnesota Gophers, and decided that he can't believe in Tubby Smith's team until they solved their defensive problems.

"The offensive rebounding makes the offense very good," Reed wrote, "but I am still not seeing an improved defense. To compete for a Big Ten championship this season, Minnesota will have to do better on that end." Read the full piece.

We come across a number of Big Ten fan photos during the year, and pulled together a few good ones lately.

You really do owe it to yourself to enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Big Ten Tournament Sweepstakes for a chance to win the ultimate men?s basketball tourney prize package.

And yes, as a matter of fact we do track Big Ten dunks all season. Thanks for asking.
