Question: Is it possible for a national Player of the Year candidate to not lead any of the major statistical categories in his own conference?
Answer: In the 2012-13 Big Ten basketball season it is.
The upcoming Big Ten basketball season promises to be one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory.
No less than six teams could walk away with the league title.
Obviously, if you have so many great teams, you are also going to have quite a few exceptional individual players dotting the rosters of the teams that make up that kind of conference.
Here are my predictions for the leaders in eight key major statistical categories in the Big Ten for the upcoming season
Is it really possible that Cody Zeller may not be the conference leader in any of these?
