Coaching carousel, per ESPN

It’s a Plus article so I won’t paste or link here, but some interesting discussion on a few jobs… – Arizona and LSU are interesting situations to watch, because both head coaches are expected to be subpoenaed to testify in April. If they do, what will come of that and what impact will it have […]

Tim Miles gets a much needed break re: Isaac Copeland

NCAA ruled that he’ll be eligible for the beginning of the season rather than having to wait until the semester break. With the Big Ten schedule the way it is, that would have meant missing two league games as well as the non conference portion of the schedule. Copeland was a top 50ish recruit out […]

Spring Big Ten Preview #10 – Nebraska

LAST SEASON – The Huskers never quite found a consistent level of play and ended up at 16-18 and 6-12 in the league. Tim Miles has elevated expectations in Lincoln, reaching the NCAA Tournament two years ago. However, that’s been followed up by two consecutive disappointing campaigns and though his job isn’t in any sort […]

BTT Preview Friday Games (Non MSU)

Michigan vs. Indiana – IU won a blowout victory in their one meeting this year at Crisler, when they erased an early Michigan lead with a landslide run which the Wolvies could never chip away at. Michigan still likely needs a win in this game to wrap up an NCAA bid…I’d give them a small […]

BTT Preview Thursday Games

Northwestern vs. Michigan – This is a big one for both teams. Northwestern is pushing for an NIT berth (not the automatic it once would have been for a Big Ten team with 20 wins) and Michigan absolutely has to have a win to keep its NCAA hopes alive. Michigan won the only regular season […]

BTT Preview Wednesday Games

Minnesota¬†vs. Illinois – For as bad as the Illini have been, hard to see them losing to a Minnesota team which has been stripped of most of its guards over the last few weeks. I suppose Murphy and King give the Gophers a chance if they’re operating with maximum motors and Illinois comes out sluggishly, […]

Nebraska

Michigan State returns to the Breslin Center as desperate for a win as they’ve been all season, trying to stop a two game losing streak against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Huskers are 11-8 overall and 3-3 in the Big Ten. BACKCOURT – The Huskers have gone to a two point guard look recently, with Benny […]

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 […]

Spring Big Ten Preview #12 – Nebraska

LAST SEASON – Heading into last year, Nebraska basketball was at something close to peak optimism. The program was coming off its first NCAA appearance in several years. It returned most of its key components, including All Big Ten choice Terran Petteway. Coach Time Miles seemed to be a breath of fresh air, injecting Nebraska’s […]
