After one last round of surprises on Sunday, the bracket is set for the 2014 Big Ten tournament. This tourney rarely goes according to seeding under the best of circumstances, and in this upset-filled season, it’s even likelier that some high-ranking team is going to take a painful loss.
Indeed, Wisconsin will head to Indianapolis with just such a defeat still stinging, thanks to Sunday’s second-half collapse at Nebraska. The Badgers still hold the No. 2 seed, but it’s tough to call them the second-best prospect to take home the championship trophy.
Herein, more on Sam Dekker’s squad and the rest of Big Ten, with an eye to how far they’re likely to get and their odds of winning it all in Indy. The teams are presented in order of their seeding, not of any indication of their tournament projections.
