[btn-post-package]It will be 2016 before we know it.

To help usher in the New Year, we're reliving some of the best in Big Ten men's basketball from a highly successful 2015 calendar year that saw a pair of Big Ten teams advance to the Final Four in April for the first time since 2005 and Michigan State spend the last three weeks atop the major national polls.

Up today: Top 5 Big Ten dimes of 2015.

With so many games and so many great passes, this was not an easy practice. Still, we debated all of our favorites and, somehow, managed to narrow it down to five.

Our No. 1 pass is former Ohio State point guard D'Angelo Russell's unforgettable left-handed dime at Northwestern.
