With the Big Ten athletic year now complete, we decided to compile a fun list. No, this isn't a list that ranks the top athletes or breakout players. It's one that's all about puns on Big Ten basketball players' names, both past and present. Whether you're a horse racing fan or a fantasy sports geek, you'll appreciate these creative names.

Have a fun team name for a Big Ten athlete? We encourage you to submit it in the comment box at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
