The toughest conference schedule in college basketball has concluded, and, naturally, it has resulted in three regular-season co-champions.
Wisconsin, Michigan State and Maryland all finished the season 14-6 in Big Ten play, but the Badgers claimed the top overall seed of the Big Ten Tournament thanks to their 2-1 record against the Spartans and Terrapins. Michigan State was 2-2 against its fellow co-champions, while Maryland was 1-2.
DECOURCY: Big Ten facing unprecedented, unparalleled parity
Wisconsin might be the top overall seed in the tournament, but that doesn’t mean the Badgers have an easy route to claiming the Big Ten’s automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament. An astounding eight Big Ten teams (Wisconsin, Michigan State, Maryland, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan) were ranked in the AP Top 25 at the conclusion of Sunday’s regular-season games. Any could beat the other on any given day — just ask Indiana coach Archie Miller.
With that, here is the complete breakdown of the 2020 Big Ten Tournament, from brackets, TV information and schedules:
Big Ten Tournament bracket 2020
Wisconsin enters the Big Ten Tournament with the top overall seed, followed by Michigan State and Maryland as the 2- and 3-seeds, respectively. That said, the conference could place a mind-boggling 11 of 14 teams in the NCAA Tournament, per Ryan Fagan’s latest March Madness projections. Again: This conference tournament might have the most parity of any in college basketball.
