The conference may have eight or more teams in the NCAA Tournament, with Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Wisconsin, Maryland, Iowa and Minnesota in comfortably. Ohio State and Indiana, however, will sweat out conference tournament weekend. The Hoosiers will likely need a win or two in the Big Ten tourney to feel strong about their chances despite a 17-14 record. Ohio State has been without leading scorer Kaleb Wesson since March 1, but has a slightly calmer resume and is on the right side of the bubble for now.

So the United Center in Chicago will be filled with excellent teams and programs needing a win for their postseason hopes. Those are the ingredients for a quality conference tournament.
