With the regular season officially coming to an end and the dawn of conference tournament season upon us, it is time to reflect on what got us here.
The Big Ten may well be the deepest conference in college basketball, and it was definitely among the the most exciting and competitive..
Three teams sit atop the conference standings, Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State all at 13-5 in league play. Four other teams have a legitimate case to be dancing by next weekend.
As always, this is not the absolute definitive list and all reader feedback is welcome and encouraged.
Whether you agree or disagree, whether you think someone was left off unjustly, or you think someone was rated too high, say so. That is really the fun part of sports and these types of lists. Everyone is different and sees things with their own point of view.
With that, it's time to select the 2012 All-Big Ten teams.
