Roughly halfway through the nonconference basketball season, CBSSports.com's Jerry Palm decided to take another look at what the NCAA tourney bracket looks like. First impression: Jerry really likes the Big Ten. Nine teams make the field, more than any other conference, including Northwestern (No. 10), which eyes its first NCAA berth, and Indiana (No. 7), which hasn't made the tourney since 2007-08. See all the Big Ten teams Palm included in this post.

Big Ten seeds
No. 1. Ohio State
No. 3. Illinois
No. 4. Michigan
No. 5. Wisconsin
No. 6. Michigan State
No. 7. Indiana, Purdue
No. 10. Northwestern
No. 14. Minnesota
