Nice to see Michigan State ranks on top of the B1G when it comes to basketball this year, especially since that makes it two years in a row as the best combined program in the conference. We summed up the totals from 2014 yesterday. Here are the totals from 2013, originally published about a year ago.

We decided to check back to the previous year (2012) since we hadn't counted that one up yet. To quote Gomer Pyle, "surprise, surprise, surprise"......MSU was on top that season as well! (Okay, tied with Ohio State, but none were better.)

Here are the combined basketball league standings from 2012:

  • 24-10 Michigan State
  • 24-10  Ohio State
  • 21-13  Purdue
  • 21-13  Michigan
  • 19-15  Iowa
  • 17-17  Penn State
  • 17-17  Wisconsin
  • 14-20  Nebraska
  • 12-22  Indiana
  • 12-22  Northwestern
  • 12-22  Minnesota
  • 11-23  Illinois

If you've been reading this web site, you can probably see where this is going. We reported that MSU has led the conference in combined team wins for three years in a row. Get it, that's three years in a row. Did you notice that number (3), the number THREE? Some people want to talk about the three-year perspective these days, especially in basketball. So we'll add up those numbers and report them tomorrow!
