I'm a 3L at the University of Iowa College of Law who will complete his Pre-JD educational experience in May of 2018. Before law school, I graduated from Coe College with a degree in political science and history. When my free time isn't being sucked away by law school, I enjoy following a bunch of different sports teams and writing.

I didn't mention it because I still have no idea what they called. After the timeout, they said Rutgers couldn't advance the ball. That would indicate that the referees awarded the timeout when the ball was in play. But a Rutgers player never possessed the ball in play. They just threw it in off the PG. I'm pretty sure you have to actually possess the ball to call timeout when it's in play. 

My conclusion is the call was blown, but because I don't know what the call actually was, I can't say for sure.

Should be. Iowa was #28 in the AP last week (3rd in receiving votes). Michigan was #24 and just lost twice this week. Princeton was #25, but only a few votes higher than Iowa. I'd guess at least #24, though possibly higher. Two ranked wins are really impressive.

I'd say any of: Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Northwestern, or Rutgers could win the Big Ten. Rutgers has started well, but two of its three road wins are Illinois and Wisconsin. No Big Ten road win is easy, but those are easier than most.

Nebraska also looks solid, but not sure it has enough to beat all the teams it will need to. Ohio State seems like it could beat or lose to any opponent on a given night. Minnesota had some potential, but it seems like that team is a mess right now. 

I don't know a lot about Michigan, Michigan State, or Purdue, but 3 losses in 5 is hard to come back from.

The coaches have done a great job this year. One micro example from this game came around the 4 minute mark. Iowa switched from a 2-3 zone to a triangle and two to close out the game, and it confused Maryland for a couple possessions. Iowa got a couple stops, and Sevillian hit her buckets in that time. Then Maryland needed threes, but didn't get open looks because the "two" were playing man to man against Maryland's best three-point shooters.

Yeah, they haven't played the best conference schedule yet, but the South Carolina win looks really good on paper (I don't know if SC was missing players or had an off night, etc). Coming into conference play, I figured they and Maryland were the favorites, with a bunch of good teams just below them. Maryland's two losses gives Indiana a leg up, but the tough part of Indiana's schedule is still ahead. We'll know a lot more after Sunday.
