Alford Talks Big Ten Basketball

Steve Alford met the media today in advance of Wednesday’s Big Ten season opener and talked about Jeff Horner and the grind of the coming league season, the mental challenge of getting “up” for “lesser” non-conference opponents when you’re 10-1, the downside of a 16-game Big Ten schedule, an “up year” for the Big Ten, Adam Haluska, Erik Hansen and more.
