No. 1 Seed: Michigan State
The Spartans were certainly impressive this season, although they ended with two straight tough losses against Indiana and Ohio State.
Just winning one of these games would have secured an outright Big Ten title.
Michigan State had the hardest strength of schedule (SOS) in the country, so they are accustomed to playing top competition.
Draymond Green is the Big Ten Player of the Year, and Keith Appling is an explosive guard. If there is one thing I have come to learn, never doubt Tom Izzo.
No. 2 Seed: Michigan
The Wolverines have been a pleasant surprise in the Big Ten. Coach Beilein is a class act with a superb basketball mind. His offense is extremely complicated, predicated on multiple off-ball screens and slashes to the basket.
On defense, Beilein loves to mix in his 1-3-1 zone to confuse the opponent. Trey Burke has been incredible this season, and this Wolverine squad looks poised to make some noise in the NCAA tournament.
In order to win the Big Ten tournament, Michigan would probably need to take down the Spartans and the Buckeyes.
No. 3 Seed: Ohio State
The Buckeyes are coming off of an impressive comeback win against Michigan State.
Jared Sullinger has been as solid as any big man in the country. Aaron Craft is a "crafty" point guard who wreaks havoc on the defensive end. William Buford is a streaky shooter on the outside who can catch fire at any time.
Ohio State has a lot of momentum coming into this Big Ten tournament and should be a very tough out.
