After the First Four is decided, the Big Ten will make up nearly 13 percent of the field with eight teams invited to the NCAA Tournament.
The league, highlighted by a pair of 2 seeds in Michigan and Michigan State, sent more teams to the tournament than any conference in the country.
Ohio State is the lowest-rated team in the conference, drawing an 11 seed and a matchup against Big 12 Tournament Champions Iowa State.
The Big Ten also sent Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Purdue and Wisconsin to the big dance.
|Michigan State||2 seed||Bradley|
|Purdue||3 seed||Old Dominion|
|Maryland||6 seed||Belmont/Temple winner|
|Ohio State||11 seed||Iowa State|
A Big Ten member hasn't won the NCAA Tournament since 2000, when Michigan State beat Florida 89-76 for the title (Maryland wasn't in the Big Ten when it won he tournament in 2002). Since the Spartans' championship, a Big Ten team has made the title game seven times before falling in each contest.
