Here's where every B1G team ranks according to KenPom at the end of the regular season
The Big Ten’s 2020-21 regular season is in the books.
According to KenPom.com’s latest ratings update, the Big Ten has an astounding six of the top 13 teams in the country. No other conference has more than one team in the top 13.
Here’s how all 14 teams are ranked nationally according to KenPom:
- No. 3 Michigan
- No. 4 Iowa
- No. 5 Illinois
- No. 7 Ohio State
- No. 11 Wisconsin
- No. 13 Purdue
- No. 29 Maryland
- No. 33 Rutgers
- No. 34 Penn State
- No. 39 Indiana
- No. 56 Michigan State
- No. 62 Minnesota
- No. 69 Northwestern
- No. 92 Nebraska
Michigan was as high as No. 2 in the KenPom rankings late in the year, but dropped down to No. 3 in the final week of the regular season. The Wolverines, along with Iowa, Illinois and Ohio State, are in contention for a No. 1 seed.
Michigan State received a healthy bump after defeating Michigan on Sunday. The Spartans were ranked 61st nationally before beating their in-state rivals. Despite ranking behind Indiana, it’s Michigan State who is expected to participate in the Big Dance while the Hoosiers hope for an NIT bid.
Maryland’s No. 29 ranking could be an asset for the Terps as they fight to make the NCAA Tournament.
Nebraska was the only Big Ten team to finish outside the top 70. The Huskers had a nightmare season that included multiple narrow defeats.
The Big Ten Tournament gets underway on March 10. Selection Sunday is on March 14.
