Early look at NCAA Tournament mock brackets

It’s mid-January. Seems like a good time to start taking a look at some mock NCAA brackets. Things are looking good for Wisconsin and Michigan State, which are primed to be No. 1 seeds. Michigan, Iowa and Ohio State also are solid tourney teams for now. But teams like Minnesota and Indiana may bob in and out of these mock brackets all winter.

Big Ten Geeks: The Gophers arrive

Minnesota picked up a huge resume win over Ohio State, 63-53 in 63 possessions. The story of this game was on the interior, where Elliott Eliason made his presence felt on both ends. The bearded big man went 6-for-8 on twos, leading a Gopher attack that scored a point per trip despite a bad night from the perimeter. Minnesota’s poor three-point shooting and bad turnover rate weren’t a huge surprise, given the defensive strength of the Buckeye backcourt, but the Gophers’ ability to score inside was unexpected. %Shots at rim %Shots 2pt J %Shots 3pt Ohio State 18% 51% 31%
