Glance at the Big Ten-
- All but 2 of the Big Ten teams have winning records, neither of the two are Northwestern or Penn State.
- Michigan State has won at least a tie of the Big Ten regular Season Title
- Seven of the eleven teams have been ranked in the Top 25. Penn State was in Top 30, recieving votes after defeating Michigan State
- There has been as many as 8 Big Ten teams in the tournament from bracketolgists.
Three teams that are looking to upset, and win their way into the tourney for sure.
Minnesota: As we learned at Kentucky, never under estimate Tubby's team. We know they can beat high-quality teams, but lately they've been slipping and are on the outside looking in.
Michigan: Michigan has two great wins in non-conference play, but has been struggling in conference play. They beat UCLA and Duke, so don't be suprised if they were to take out Purdue, Michigan State or Illinois in their conference tourney.
Penn State: This team could be a top 25 team or they could be at the bottom of the conference with Indiana. Really their fate is up to them. They don't have any terrible losses though, only to Rhode Island, they can't seem to decide if their a pretender or a contender.
