The Big Ten and ACC are typically two of the strongest college basketball conferences year in and year out, and they prove it through their annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
The ACC dominated the competition from its outset, but the Big Ten has seized momentum recently. With new blood joining the ACC (and some of the old blood packing up its bags to eventually join the Big Ten), the 2013-14 Challenge should be equally as heated.
A good place to start when assessing the strengths of the conferences is with the projected All-Conference teams. Read on to see a comparison of the All-ACC and All-Big Ten teams.
*The projected All-Big Ten team comes from Brent Yarina of the Big Ten Network, while the All-ACC team is this writer’s projection. As with any all-conference teams, the positions are occasionally liberally enforced.
