Congratulations to the Ohio State Buckeyes.  They led the league from the 1st week.

 

The surprise team of the year has to be Michigan.  They were picked for 10th place, but they managed to finish tied for 4th place, and they earned the #4 seed in the Big Ten Tournament.  Runner-up: Penn State.

 

The most disappointing team has to be Michigan State.  They were ranked #2 in the nation to start the season, and they finished 9-9, tied for 4th in the Big Ten, with the #7 seed in the tournament.  Runner-up: Minnesota.

 

Results

Here are the resultsfrom last week's games:

 

Tuesday (03/01/2011)

Illinois lost at Purdue, 75-67

Ohio State won at Penn State, 82-61

 

Wednesday (03/02/2011)

Iowa lost at Michigan State, 85-66

Minnesota lost at Northwestern, 68-57

 

Thursday (03/03/2011)

Wisconsin won at Indiana, 77-67

 

Saturday (03/05/2011)

Indiana lost at Illinois, 72-48

Michigan State lost at Michigan, 70-63

Purdue lost at Iowa, 67-65

 

Sunday (03/06/2011)

Penn State won at Minnesota, 66-63

Wisconsin lost at Ohio State, 84-60

 

The home teams did OK this week, going 7-3.

 

There were a couple surprises this week:

 

·         Purdue losing at Iowa on Saturday.  Purdue had been one of the hottest teams in the Big Ten, then they found out how hard it can be to win on the road in the Big Ten.

·         Ohio State crushing Wisconsin in Columbus on Sunday.  It’s not surprising that OSU won, but it is surprising that they won by 24 points.
