What was up with Big 10 men’s basketball last night? Iowa BEATS Wisconsin…. but even better Northwestern BEATS Michigan State at home?! Oh… that fills my heart with so much hope for my Boilermakers, but at the same time, a little bit of fear. I’m glad we eeked out that win at the Wildcats home turf, so now we only have to play them at Mackey. If you watched the last 5-6 minutes of the MSU v NU game, it was wild. Turnovers, far off shot but made 3’s, missed free throws… I’m glad it wasn’t my team because I probably would have a few holes in my living rooms walls.
Tonight my team is at Minnesota, the only Big 10 game on. How do I know it’s the only one on? I made a spreadsheet. Yes, I’m a dork. I remember a football one being sent around last year and went searching for one on BIg 10 basketball. One didn’t exist. Since I had some idle time on my hands, I tasked myself with creating one that would provide some overall statistics as well. (You’re welcome Head 🙂 Here’s what it looks like. Let’s hope the Boilers get a road victory tonight!!
