"He averaged two points a game but was one of our top guys in minutes because of his impact". The Canes have the potential to make some noise in the NCAA tournament, if they play their A game. I think this group has taken ownership of that.

The Michigan Wolverines bench celebrates against the Wisconsin Badgers in the first half during the Big Ten Conference Tournament championship game at Verizon Center. It's just a matter of 'Let's do what we do better.' There weren't any radical changes, anything outside the box.

February 25: MI scores a signature win, 82-70, over eventual Big Ten regular season champ Purdue to improve to 9-7 in the league.

Northwestern (23-11), meanwhile, playing for the third straight day for the first time this season, missed its first seven offerings and ended up shooting 34.6 percent.

The much-maligned Big Ten doesn't have a dominant team like Villanova in the Big East or Kansas in the Big 12, but that's not necessarily a weakness.

Bronson Koenig scored 16 points to lead five Badgers in double figures.

Wisconsin entered having won three consecutive games, including Big Ten Tournament victories in which they held in to 60 points in the quarterfinals, and Northwestern to 48 in the semifinals.

Both of the teams have made it to this championship game, but have done it in very different ways, respectively.

Asked about his relationship with the 28-year-old, the Frenchman said: "Honest and normal like with every single player". Craig Burley can not wrap his head around why Alexis Sanchez would sign a new deal as Arsenal are trending backwards.

"We never lost faith in what we were doing ..."

On the season, Wisconsin basketball is averaging 72.4 points, 37.7 rebounds and 13.6 assists per game.

About 300 fans, media members and OSU basketball players crammed into a room Sunday afternoon, all eyes on a projector displaying the March Madness Selection Show. Now, it's the Big Ten champion.

With Happ anchoring the interior and both Showalter and Koenig running the backcourt, Hayes picked his spots accordingly.

Two days after its airplane's scary abandoned takeoff, Michigan's wild journey carried on into the Big Ten semifinals with a 74-70 overtime upset of 13th-ranked Purdue behind D.J. Wilson's 26 points Friday.

Northwestern would never get closer. Minnesota was threatening to erase Michigan's blistering start Saturday, but Walton put the Wolverines on his back with 29 points, nine assists, five rebounds and two steals. SVP took a bow, and the crowd went insane.

After the game, coach John Beilein points to freaky defensive lapses and says last year's Tournament appearance may have fooled MI into thinking it is better than it really is.

"They were not at the 7 this morning", Hollis said on Sunday night.
