2017 Big Ten Basketball Tournament preview
No. 1 Purdue vs. Michigan | 12 p.m. | ESPN
Betting odds: Purdue -3
Michigan is the talk of the tourney after a terrifying incident with the team plane on its way to Washington D.C. They even wore practice jerseys for Thursday’s game against Illinois, a 75-55 win.
But the Wolverines will have to deal with regular season champs Purdue and Caleb Swanigan, the Big Ten Player of the Year. He was the No. 3 player in the country in KenPom’s efficiency metric and the Boilermakers as a team rank 14th. Biggie, as he’s called, averaged a ridiculous 18.7 points and 12.6 rebounds per game this season. Purdue can defend and rebound on the interior and shoot threes — it ranked fifth nationally in 3-point percentage.
No. 4 Minnesota vs. Michigan State | 25 minutes after Purdue-Mich | ESPN
Betting odds: Michigan State -1
The Spartans rolled through Penn State on Thursday, 78-51, to setup a date in the quarterfinals with Minnesota. Michigan State has certainly had its up and downs but when it’s on, with freshman F Miles Bridges leading the way, it can beat anyone in the Big Ten.
Richard Pitino resurrected a program that seemed to be dying on his watch this season, leading the Gophers to a 23-8 regular season en route to league coach of the year honors. Minnesota ranks 15th in defensive efficiency and defends on-ball better than just about anyone in the country.
No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 10 Indiana | 6:30 p.m. | BTN
Betting odds: Wisconsin -4
Wisconsin struggled mightily down the stretch, losing five of its last seven games after starting 10-1 in conference play. The Badgers are one of the worst free-throw shooting teams in the country at 64.4 percent (332nd in the nation). Their defense ranks 10th.
Indiana won’t make the NCAA Tournament but has shown flashes of brilliance, including a comeback against Iowa on Thursday night. The Hoosiers rank 19th in effective field goal percentage and 14th in offensive rebounding rate.
Game 10: No. 3 Maryland vs. No. 6 Northwestern | 25 minutes after Wisc-Ind | BTN
Betting odds: Pick’em
Northwestern throttled Rutgers on Thursday and after a 21-10 regular season (10-8 in Big Ten play), the Wildcats look poised to make their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. They play excellent defense, ranking 32nd in defensive efficiency.
Maryland probably isn’t as good as its 24-7 record indicates thanks to a weak non-conference schedule. The Terps rank 40th in overall efficiency and lost three of their last five games down the stretch.
