Big Ten Basketball Tournament 2020: Bracket, Schedule & TV Info

The 2020 Big Ten basketball tournament officially gets underway on Wednesday, March 11 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana as we approach Selection Sunday and the start of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Wisconsin, the reigning regular-season champions, holds the top seed in the tournament and will look to continue their momentum throughout March Madness. Last season, Michigan State entered the tournament as the No. 1 seed and came away with the title, so the Badgers will look to repeat the Spartans’ performance.

The Spartans are this season’s No. 2 seed, while Maryland, Illinois, and Iowa round out the top five.

When is your favorite team set to take the court?
