The Big Ten conference is one of the more, ahem, unpredictable leagues in the country this season. Indiana opened the regular season with a stunning upset over Kansas, prompting some to pick the Hoosiers as Big Ten champions. Obviously, that didn’t happen.
Wisconsin then stepped into the void with a 10-1 Big Ten record…before losing five of its next six games. The turnover at the top allowed Purdue to get hot late in the season and claim a conference title.
Now all of these up-and-down teams are preparing to duke it out in the league tournament. If the regular season is any indication, this is going to be quite entertaining.
