BTN released the 2014 All-Big Ten Teams and individual award winners on #BTNLive’s All-Conference Selection Special on Monday night. Before the teams were made official, BTN.com offered their teams and superlative winners. See them in this post.
Well, it’s that time again—time to highlight all of our correct predictions, and whitewash all of the things we got wrong! See our Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller wrap up the regular season and hand out hardware in this post.
The Big Ten has revealed the bracket for its tourney, which kicks off on Thursday in Indianapolis. There are many interesting storylines, as Michigan looks for its first Big Ten tourney crown since the inaugural event in 1998. In fact, that’s the only time the Wolverines have won the tourney.
It’s going to be tough to top the Senior Night that Nebraska put on Sunday night. Let’s see, there was the record crowd, the NCAA tourney hopeful team hosting No. 9 in the nation, the marriage proposal in pregame, the recognition of the Nebraska women’s team’s Big Ten tourney title, the upset and the court storming. Got all that? Yeah, Nebraska set the bar rather high. Relive the top moments in this post.
Big Ten outright champ Michigan entered the top 10 of the latest AP Poll, released Monday. The Wolverines, fresh off victories at Illinois and vs. Indiana, moved up from No. 12 to No. 8. Wisconsin, which was No. 9 last week, dropped to No. 12 following Sunday night’s loss at Nebraska. Michigan State (No. 22) and Ohio State (No. 24) round out the Big Ten.
The regular season is over. On to the league tourneys. Basically, six teams look to be locks for the Big Dance: Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Iowa. Minnesota is squarely on the bubble.
