Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Nebraska are the top four seeds in the 2014 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, the conference office announced on Sunday night. The 17th annual event will be played March 13-16 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Why wouldn’t a season as wild as this one end with a crazy upset in the final game of the regular season? Nebraska upset No. 9 Wisconsin in the conference’s final game to highlight a busy day. In other action, Minnesota ran past Penn State, Ohio State nipped No. 22 Michigan State and Northwestern dropped Purdue. Catch up on all the action and video highlights in this post.
Michigan State used a run out of intermission to create separation from Iowa in an eventual 10-point win. Both teams scored nearly at will in this one, but the Spartans’ outstanding three-point shooting masked a high turnover rate that is becoming worrisome.
