The 2016 NBA Lottery is Tuesday night, which got us thinking about recent Big Ten lottery picks.

There’s been a dozen from the Big Ten in the last 10 drafts, none higher than Ohio State’s Greg Oden (No. 1; 2007); three Big Ten names have gone No. 2 (Evan Turner, 2010; Victor Oladipo, 2013; D’Angelo Russell, 2015).

A couple more Big Ten lottery factoids:

  • Indiana and Ohio State pace the conference with four lottery picks apiece since 2006.
  • The 2013 draft was the most fruitful lottery for the Big Ten, with three picks.
