One week from today, the 2017 Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament tips off in Washington D.C. With that in mind, let's take a look at the latest Big Ten tourney scenarios for all 14 teams. As of right now, just two teams are locked into seeds: No. 1 Purdue and No. 14 Rutgers.
Before we start the final week of the season, it's time for BTN analyst Jess Settles to share his latest Big Ten Player Rankings. This week's biggest mover: Iowa's Peter Jok, who moves up four spots to No. 5.

Every team deals with injuries sooner or later, and this Big Ten men's basketball season is no different. Tom Dienhart lists the most significant injuries in the conference this year.
This is the penultimate week of the season. And, things are heating up with Purdue and Wisconsin tied for first and Maryland just a game back. Who will take home the title? Others are looking to hone their postseason resume.
