Seth Davis calls on B1G to 'show it' in NCAA Tournament after recent postseason woes
The B1G will head into the postseason with more teams in the NCAA Tournament than any other conference in the country. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best league in the nation, especially if you ask CBS Sports college basketball expert Seth Davis.
After the brackets and matchups were revealed on Sunday evening, Davis called on the B1G to start showing up in March. Last year, the B1G had 9 teams in the field but Michigan was the only one to advance past the Round of 32.
“There’s been so much talk — which the B1G has earned — about how they’ve performed in the NCAA Tournament,” Davis said on Sunday. “You got 9 teams in. Time to show it.”
Not only did the B1G struggle last year, the league hasn’t won a national championship since Michigan State’s title run in 2000. There have been plenty of Final Four appearances in that span, but nobody has claimed it all.
The teams representing the B1G this year:
- Michigan State
- Ohio State
Will that finally change in 2022? We’ll find out.
