B1G Tournament seeding: A lot still to play for over final weekend of the regular season
Heading into the final weekend of the regular season, seeding for the B1G Tournament in Indianapolis remains up in the air.
Earlier in the week, Wisconsin downed Purdue in Madison to clinch a share of the regular-season B1G title. A win over Nebraska this weekend will give the Badgers the title outright while a loss would open the door for a tie with Illinois.
Beyond the conference title, seeding from top to bottom of the conference is still undecided. Michigan State Associate AD Kevin Pauga shared an image of the seeding possibilities for the conference tournament with 128 scenarios in play, depending on the results from the final weekend of the regular season.

Based on those results, Indiana and Northwestern are the only teams locked into their seeding for next week. Illinois is among the teams with the most to play for this weekend with the potential to move from No. 2 into a tie for first place or drop to No. 3.
Seeds 4-6 are also up in the air with results between Iowa, Ohio State and Rutgers necessary to determine the order. Iowa will face Illinois in Champaign Sunday in one of the key showdowns of the weekend.
For Ohio State, the Buckeyes will face Michigan at home. Rutgers will face Penn State at home.
