Preseason watch lists[edit]

On August 19, 2009, the Wooden Award preseason watch list included eight Big Ten players. The watch list was composed of 50 players who were not transfers, freshmen or medical redshirts. The list will be reduced to a 30-player mid-season watch list in December and a final national ballot of about 20 players in March.[20] On October 29, the Naismith College Player of the Year watch list of 50 players was announced. In late February, a shorter list of the Top 30 was compiled in preparation for a March vote to narrow the list to the four finalists.[21]

Regular season[edit]

National Player of the Year Evan Turner of Ohio State set new Big Ten records for number of career and single season Player of the Week awards during the 2009–10 Big Ten Conference men's basketball season.
November

The season opened with the Big Ten Conference holding the leadership with six teams ranked among the preseason top 25 in both the AP Poll and the Coaches' Poll, setting a new conference record for the most teams ranked to open a season. The season also opened with the entire 2008–09 first team All-Big Ten players returning.[39] Both Manny Harris (November 14) and Evan Turner (November 9) recorded triple doubles in the opening week of the season marking the first times a Big Ten player has accomplished the feat since January 13, 2001.[22] Six of the eleven conference teams started at least one freshman.[40] The following week, three schools (Michigan State, Illinois and Iowa) participated in ESPN's Tuesday, November 17 24-hour hoops marathon across its family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU & ESPN360).[40] Michigan State's Magic Johnson and Jud Heathcote were inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame on November 22.[41] With his 341st victory, Tom Izzo became Michigan State's all-time leader in basketball coaching victories.[42] Turner became the second player in conference history to be named conference player of the week three weeks in a row.[42] On November 28, both Ohio State and Michigan State scored 100 points,[43][44] marking the first time two conference teams have done so since December 22, 1997.[45]

December

For the second time in the season, two teams scored 100 points on the same night on December 5.[46][47] For the first time in eleven attempts, the Big Ten won the ACC – Big Ten Challenge.[45] In his 275th game, Bo Ryan reached the 200-win milestone with Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball. In the same week, Tom Crean raised his record to 200-–125.[48] The Big Ten entered intraconference play tied with the Big East Conference by having five ranked teams. Northwestern entered conference play on its longest winning streak in 16 years (9), and Purdue reached the 11–0 mark for the second time and had a perfect record at the end of December for the first time since the 1936–37 season.[49]

January

Purdue ran its record to 14–0 to start the season, which tied the Glenn Robinson-led 1993–94 Purdue Boilermakers for the best start in school history.[50] Four Big Ten athletes (Talor Battle, Harris, Trevon Hughes and Lucas) were named as finalists for the 2010 Bob Cousy Award to lead all conferences. Harris, Lucas, Robbie Hummel and Turner were also selected Midseason Top 30 finalists for the 2010 John Wooden Award.[51] On January 12, Hummel and Turner became only the third pair of opposing Big Ten players to post 30 points against each other in one night.[52][53] Michigan State established a new school record by winning its first eight conference games and extended the streak to nine by the end of the month.[54][55]

February

On February 8 Turner recorded his fifth Conference Player of the Week award and eighth of his career surpassing the former conference record held by Glenn Robinson and Jim Jackson, who each had seven career and tied Robinson's single-season record with five.[34] Two weeks later he set the single-season record with his sixth recognition when he averaged 24.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists against two ranked opponents (No. 4 Purdue and at No. 11 Michigan State).[36] Three Big Ten players made the February Top 30 midseason Naismith College Player of the Year watch list: Hummel, Lucas and Turner.[56][57] Hummel and Turner were selected among the 16 finalists for the 2010 Oscar Robertson Trophy.[58]

March

Turner was selected as one of six finalists for the Bob Cousy Award.[59] Lucas, Hummel and Turner were included on the final 26-man ballot for the Wooden Award.[60][61]
