Final Big Ten Hoops Power Rankings

The NCAA tourney tips Tuesday night, meaning it’s time to release my final 2012 Big Ten men’s hoops power rankings. The rankings are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be?

Dienhart's Best of the Big Ten Tournament

With 11 games over four days, there was a lot to watch and digest at the 15th Big Ten tourney in Indianapolis. There were highs and lows as well as good and bad from the first game to the final game. My best player? Michigan State’s Draymond Green. The Big Ten player of the year had an encore performance, winning tourney MVP honors.
