Starting Thursday morning, the best group of college basketball teams in the country will begin what should be an incredible weekend tournament.
This year's Big Ten Conference has been, without question, the best in the nation.
The final AP poll of the regular season saw the following Big Ten teams ranked:
8. Michigan State
10. Ohio State
If those ranking seem odd, they should; Michigan finished ranked sixth in the country, but they're the five seed in the conference tournament.
The action gets going with four games on Thursday and four more on Friday.
Here are my predictions for the entire tournament.
