It’s been a dogfight in the Big Ten this season, with five teams within two games of first place. It has also been a dogfight with regard to the top players in the conference, with only D.J. White standing out as an obvious choice for the Big Ten All-January team. With that being said, here’s January’s Fab Five.
Guard – Drew Neitzel – Michigan State – SR
13.7ppg, 4.5apg, 2.5rpg
Best game – Jan 27th – Michigan – 18 points, seven boards, seven assists, two steals
Things change quickly in college basketball. What was a dirty word in March – NIT – is now a positive. For teams on the bubble last March, the prospect of playing in the NIT instead of the NCAA tournament was hard to stomach. However, now that it is November, playing in the NIT – the Dick’s Sporting Good NIT Season Tip-Off – is a welcome experience.
