It is safe to say that BIG Ten is the best baskebtall conference in the nation for a few years now. Despite it safe to say that BIG Ten has the best basketball coaches of any conference as well. With the success, it does not seem that the BIG Ten teams are getting huge recruiting classes similar to the Kentuckys, Floridas, Dukes, NCs, Kansas, etc. However, the success seams to be there year round.

Good drive and kick by Caris. He's the one guy that is dangerous as a passer and scorer when driving to the hoop. Nik has been showing signs of being able to, as of late.

Sharing the ball OK early, other than having some issues with the pressure.  Not sure what Robinson was doing going one on four there, though.
