    Maryland beats Michigan at home. I taped this game and zipped through it on the VCR. Maryland much more beatable than I thought they would be this year, although they've only lost one game so far. They could lose 3 or 4 conference games this year. Nebraska at 2-2 hosts 4-0 Rutgers Sunday in what will be a big game for the rest of the conference. If Rutgers gets off to a 5-0 start, it will be tough for some of the other teams in the conference to catch them.

    Rutgers leads Nebraska 50-42 after 3. Rutgers looks like a real contender for the BIG title, already won at Maryland. Seem to have an offense to go along with that defense.

    Indiana (4-1) romped to a 53-34 half time lead. Then the Hoosiers played some of their lethargic ball and the Badgers (1-4) closed within 8 at 56-48 with a couple of minutes remaining in the third. However, Indiana stemmed the red tide and emerged with a 75-68 win in Madison and now await the Gophers.

    Rutgers, now 5-0 with 3 BIG road wins, should be ranked in this week's poll. They're legitimately a top half BIG team. As is Indiana. And as is Purdue. Conference is topsy-turvy compared to what most people expected.

    I haven't watched it yet; but Ohio State (2-3) took down Michigan State (2-3) in Columbus.

    Ohio State was led to victory on Monday behind the efforts of Carly Santoro.

    The redshirt senior guard helped the Buckeyes (6-8, 2-3 Big Ten) lead for most of the game, giving Ohio State its second consecutive victory against a ranked team when it defeated No. 17 Michigan State (12-4, 2-3 Big Ten) 65-55.

    Santoro was on fire as she scored a season-high 25 points, hitting 4-for-7 from behind the 3-point line and 7-for-9 from the free throw line. In addition, Santoro hit a personal milestone as she reached 1,000 career points at the end of the first half with a 3 that gave Ohio State a 29-27 lead heading into halftime.

    Santoro, who also had four steals in the game, praised her teammates for giving her opportunities to score throughout the game as the reason for her success.

    “My teammates just fed me when I was hot,” Santoro said. “Credit to them, they were passing well, and it was because of them that I had the open looks.”

    Unlike its victory against Indiana Thursday, Ohio State came out riding the momentum of its previous win and used that to establish control for a majority of the game. Michigan State never had a lead larger than two, and only held the lead for 3:34 as opposed to the Buckeyes, who were ahead for 34:14.

    This factored into exactly how Ohio State wanted to play tonight, according to Santoro.

    “I just think we’ve really been emphasizing that we had to come out and start the game strong,” Santoro said. “That’s what we did tonight, and we said once we have the pedal down, we had to keep it going. We did that the entire game, and we just executed our game plan.”

    Purdue (4-1) at Rutgers (5-0) might be interesting.

    Purdue seemed to be playing a 3-2 zone effectively dampening Rutgers three point shooters. Plus it helped that Cryor fouled out.

    Northwestern sprinted out to an 18-7 lead and pretty much maintained their distance the rest of the way. Veronica Burton also had a strong game with 19.

    Maryland thumped by MSU in East Lansing. Two conferences losses by mid-January for the Terps.

    It was fun to hear Aerial Powers guest on the telecast and mention the Rachel Banham game as her most memorable game at Breslin.

    Yes, that was a great game. Also, I wasn't aware that former MSU star Tori Jankoska is now a Maryland assistant coach. Ouch for MSU. I wonder if Freese gave her "run 'em out of the gym" speech before the game. She's given that speech so often, I almost have it memorized.

    Karissa McLaughlin's driving layup with 25 seconds remaining and two free throws with 1.8 remaining gave Purdue (5-2) a 56-53 victory over the Hoosiers (4-3) in West Lafayette. Purdue trailed 32-27 at the half but came out energized in the third quarter scoring 8 straight. The last third of the game turned into a rugged paint battle with hacking, wrestling and fouls. McLaughlin prevailed with 14 points. For Indiana, Patberg struggled again. She was 1-12 from the field. Next up for the Boilers-Minnesota.

    #20 Rutgers defeats #17 MSU handily, 76-62. Surprising Rutgers now 7-0 in the BIG. I didn't think I'd ever see another day in which C. Viv would be the BIG Coach of the Year, but if the vote was held today, she'd probably be a unanimous selection. Before this year, I was of the feeling that her prime years of coaching had come and gone. Her teams were usually solid on defense, but horrendous on offense. This year's Scarlet Knights are solid on both ends of the court.

    In the game of the night-well, the only game of the night; but, anyway, maybe the game of the week, Rutgers and Iowa are tied at 21 at the end of one. Gustafson score Iowa's first 13 point. It's been fun to watch thus far.
