B1G Tournament Bracket: Here's how the conference standings look entering the final week of the season
Now that Sunday’s action is wrapped up, the B1G conference standings have been updated entering the final week of regular-season action.
On Sunday, Maryland started hot against Michigan State and answered back every Spartan attempt to rally in the second half. The win for the Terrapins should solidify their NCAA Tournament spot while the Spartans are still fighting to stay off the bubble.
After that game, Iowa and Ohio State squared off with Luka Garza flexing his muscles with another double-double to his credit. The Hawkeyes are looking good and playing well heading toward the B1G Tournament. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes have lost three straight and face Illinois to cap the regular season.
Following the action, BTN released a new look at the updated bracket for the B1G Tournament. With Ohio State’s loss, they have dropped down to No. 5 in the conference, currently missing out on the double-bye.
The top four slots in the conference are currently Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Purdue. The current first-round matchups set for March 10 are Northwestern-Penn State and Nebraska-Minnesota.
Here’s how the full bracket breaks down:
