Big 10 Conference History:
The Big Ten comprises 14 teams and it became one of the last NCAA Division 1 conferences to establish an annual tournament. After playing out their regular season schedules, Big 10 teams compete in the Big Ten men’s basketball tournament.
The tournament seedings are based on each team’s regular-season record. The winner earns a spot in the NCAA Division 1 tournament. While the conference hasn’t produced an NCAA tournament winner since Maryland in 2002, Wisconsin made it to the big game in 2015 where they lost to Duke.
Iowa is favored ahead of Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan State to win the Big Ten tournament in 2021. All four teams are also among the top-12 favorites to both make it to the Final Four and win the NCAA tournament.
