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.
BTN cameras were in the Nebraska locker room to capture Tim Miles’ postgame talk to the Huskers following their exciting and all-important 77-68 win over No. 9 Wisconsin. The win clinched a bye and the No. 4 seed in next week’s Big Ten tourney, plus it might have been enough to get the Huskers (19-11, 11-7) in the NCAA tournament.
Pinnacle Bank Arena was electric all night for Sunday’s season finale vs. No. 9 Wisconsin. The fans never sat down throughout the exciting game, and following the final buzzer, they stormed the floor for the second time in as many home finales. The last one was to celebrate the final game at the Devaney Center. This one, the fans hope was to celebrate a berth in the NCAA tournament. We’ll find out soon. Watch the Huskers fans storm the court in this post.
Mike Peltz will never forget Sunday night. Not only was it his Senior Night at Nebraska, the Huskers reserve also got engaged. Yep, Peltz closed our his Senior Night speech by proposing to his girlfriend, Shelby, at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Hate to spoil the surprise, but she said, “Yes.” Congrats! Watch Peltz’s proposal in this post.
