The Big Ten men’s basketball season officially tips off Friday night. Before the ball goes into the air, the BTN.com team thought it would be fun to hold a Big Ten mock draft. Our draft consisted of five teams and six rounds, and we all selected a starting 5 and one “reserve,” which could be any player.
Here are some specifics before getting to the teams.
- The draft included BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart, BTN.com senior editor Brent Yarina, BTN.com editor Sean Merriman, BTN.com video operations coordinator Wesley White and Big Ten Geeks writer Josh Reed.
- It went in alphabetical order by last name and in snaking order.
- The categories: FG%, FT%, Points, 3s, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, Turnovers.
