With the Big Ten basketball season just about at the halfway point, we can reasonably start to project how things will shake out in early March based on the first half of the conference season.
The Big Ten is easily the nation's toughest conference this season with four of the top 11 and eight of the top 45 teams, according to Jeff Sagarin's NCAA Basketball Ratings.
Many analysts are predicting the Big Ten will send nine teams to the NCAA Tournament, which would represent 75 percent of the field.
This feat would be considered even more impressive than the record 11 teams (out of 16) the Big East sent dancing last season, or just under 69 percent of its membership.
Let's reveal what the Big Ten standings will look like on Sunday, March 4th.
