Continued: Seven Big Ten teams ready to dance in NCAAs

So after having six different teams reach the top 10 at one point or another this year, the Big Ten will look to prove itself as college basketball’s superior conference. It hasn’t produced an NCAA champion since Michigan State won it all in 2000.

The Big Ten put six teams in the tournament last year and went 11-6. Ohio State advanced to the Final Four but lost to Kansas in the semifinals.

The whole sport has been so unpredictable this year, so who knows?

“If it reflects our regular season in any way,” Bobinski said, “it should be extremely competitive and exciting.”
