Fall Big Ten Previews #2 Indiana

Spring Preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-3-indiana-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-3-indiana-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? IU added Harrison Niego, a preferred walk on guard from Illinois who had some mid major and Ivy League offers. They also added Michigan grad transfer Max Bielfeldt, a nice late addition. Bielfeldt isn’t a star but he’s proven to be a guy capable of giving you a tough […]

Fall Big Ten Previews #3 Maryland

Spring Preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/30/spring-big-ten-preview-2-maryland-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/30/spring-big-ten-preview-2-maryland-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? The Terps did end up adding Rasheed Sulaimon, a transfer from Duke. There’s not much question about his ability…he was a highly regarded player coming out of HS and he had some strong moments in Durham. However, his time at Duke was riddled with off the court issues and […]

Fall Big Ten Previews #4 Wisconsin

Spring Preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-4-wisconsin-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-4-wisconsin-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? The biggest shift since April has nothing to do with the roster. Bo Ryan announced this upcoming season would be his last, but that’s all gone into flux since the initial statement. The best read on it is that Ryan wanted to secure the head coaching job in Madison […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #5 – Michigan

Spring Preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-5-michigan-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/spring-big-ten-preview-5-michigan-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? No changes to the roster we talked about in the spring. Moritz Wagner did manage to clear admissions, so he will be on the team, though it’s unclear as to whether he’s heading for a redshirt or not at this stage…seems as if it could go either way at […]

Big Ten Fall Preview #6 Purdue

Spring preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/spring-big-ten-preview-6-purdue-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/spring-big-ten-preview-6-purdue-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? Well, the big one is well known to everybody…Purdue got Caleb Swanigan after he decommitted from Michigan State. The addition of Swanigan is a big one from a perception perspective, as he’s the first McDonald’s All American Purdue’s signed in a long, long time (maybe since Mike Robinson in […]

Big Ten Fall Preview #7 Illinois

Spring preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/spring-big-ten-preview-7-illinois-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/spring-big-ten-preview-7-illinois-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? A lot with this group. First, the losses: 1. Darius Paul was supposed to be back, something I don’t think I addressed in the spring. As it turns out, it’s a moot point, because he was dismissed from the team *again* after an incident involving an arrest while on […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #8 Ohio State

Spring preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/spring-big-ten-preview-8-ohio-state-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/spring-big-ten-preview-8-ohio-state-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? Nothing. The roster remains intact from the spring. No major injuries have been reported, so the 11 scholarship players we talked about in the spring are the same guys they’re slated to begin the season with. BOTTOM LINE OSU is not without talent, that’s for sure. However, there is […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #9 Iowa

Spring Preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/spring-big-ten-preview-9-iowa-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/spring-big-ten-preview-9-iowa-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? Nothing at all, roster wise. Iowa didn’t lose anybody and didn’t make any late additions, so the same roster we saw in late April is operative right now. 6 newcomers total, with 5 of them being freshmen…so just about half the roster is new to Big Ten basketball. BOTTOM […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #10 Northwestern

Spring preview https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/spring-big-ten-preview-10-northwestern/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/spring-big-ten-preview-10-northwestern-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? The only addition of note (and it’s trivia based as much as anything else) is the addition of walk on Charlie Hall from Los Angeles…the 6’5″ freshman forward is the son of Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and ex SNL’er Brad Hall. Other than that, it’s status quo from the spring. BOTTOM […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #11 Nebraska

Spring preview links https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/spring-big-ten-preview-12-nebraska/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/spring-big-ten-preview-12-nebraska-pt-ii/ WHAT’S CHANGED? The big addition won’t be able to help immediately. Former Louisville guard Anton Gill opted to transfer to Lincoln for his final two seasons but he won’t play until next year. Gill was a former top 100 recruit who struggled early on at the Ville but was playing […]
