Defense and hard-nosed play is what the Big Ten Conference prides itself in. There are both great individual and team defenses in this great conference. I have personally witnessed the two lowest-scoring games in the modern era for the Big Ten.

First, I saw Penn State defeat Illinois 38-33 during my freshman year of college. Then as a junior at the Big Ten Tournament, the same Nittany Lion team beat Wisconsin 36-33. Did I find those games boring? Absolutely not. Call me crazy, but I love seeing close games no matter how many points are scored. 

There are no style points in college basketball, like there are in college football, which is a very good thing. The five players highlighted in this list are a huge part of the reason that I prefer watching Big Ten basketball over any other conference.
