The Big Ten tournament bracket comes out Sunday night. Here at BTN.com, we’re trying something new around the release of the bracket that we hope Big Ten fans enjoy. It’s a bracket with 12 slots that features each team’s best dunk from the 2012-13 season.
Watch Illinois’ dunk of the year candidates in this post and vote for the slam that will represent the Illini in our new tournament.
Here’s how it works:
- BTN.com provides the finalists choices for all 12 teams.
- Via Facebook polls, Big Ten fans select the top slam for each of the 12 teams.
- Dunk seeding correlates to the actual Big Ten tourney bracket. The dunk from the tourney’s No. 1 seed gets the No. 1 dunk seed, and so on.
- Once our bracket is set, Big Ten fans will vote on BTN.com until a dunk champion is crowned.
