The Big Ten: No. 2 in the final power ranking

What Cobb Says

“The Big Ten has kind of lost the momentum it set in the 2020-21 season, when it had four teams in the top 10 in the last AP poll. Only one team — Purdue — finished in that area this season, and the Boilermakers were No. 10. Only two of the league’s nine NCAA Tournament teams reached the Sweet 16, and both were eliminated in that round as the Big Ten’s national title drought was spreading. at 22 years. Ultimately, however, the league’s sheer volume of NCAA tournament teams and professional prospects helps it stand out as the second-best conference in college basketball.
