The Big Ten Tournament will be an exciting one when it tips off in Chicago next week, and the champion will have a chance to be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament (with some help from other conferences).
Heading into the tourney, the No. 1 seed is Michigan State, followed by fellow regular-season co-champion Purdue at the No. 2 spot.

Thursday, March 14
