The NCAA tournament selection committee released an early look at its top 16 teams Saturday afternoon, and zero Big Ten teams made the cut.

Not even Big Ten leader and No. 7 Wisconsin (21-3, 10-1).

That's not exactly a ringing endorsement. If the committee doesn't respect the Big Ten's top team, it must not feel that good about the conference as a whole, most importantly its bubble teams.

Good news is, there's still plenty of time left, including the Big Ten tournament.
