[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 for the first time since 2005 in April, followed by Michigan State spending the past three weeks atop the major national polls.

Up today: Top 5 Big Ten dunks of 2015.

Now, with high-flyers such as Troy Williams and Sam Thompson, among others, suiting up in 2015, there is no shortage of can't-miss dunks.

Our favorite is former Purdue guard Jon Octeus' absolute posterization of Indiana at Assembly Hall.
