 My take on the remaining games that have to be played OSU has the easiest path to win out.and with the way Minnesota is playing right now, I'd put them as second easiest to win out. Maryland will probably will win out as well but could split the last two. Nebraska, Iowa, Purdue could all go 1-1 in their last two games.And I see Michigan lossing to Maryland, but the game is in Ann Arbor. What does everyone else think.

Yes, agree........... OSU has the easiest schedule remaining. ...and maybe Minn is right in there too.
 

The rest including us, have one "easier" game, and one tougher game left...in general terms. 

 

May not change the league standings much...but could very well change some teams prospects for the big dance.  We'll see how it shakes out. 

 

No matter where we end up,  I'm still astounded how far we've come.

With Purdue and now Minnesota showing that Maryland can be beat; I rather like our chances to pull an upset here!  

 

with some pretty darn good talent coming in next season, this may the year maryland is ripe for the taking in the BTT. having said that, it wouldn't surprise me if maryland "finds themselves" come tournament time. they are still a very good team.

Indiana beats Minnesota at Minnesota. Puts us in the top 4 even with one more loss. Lady Huskers need to be focused and beat Penn State.  GBR

Watched it on the laptop while watching the Huskers beat Indiana. Buss had 37 i think.

If Iowa and Minnesota win out and we lose one game, all three teams will finish tied for third. We should have tie breaker over both teams and thus finish third. Iowa and Minnesota split their 2 games. Does any one know how the fourth seed will be determined?

I think it would go to head to head with the rest of the league. But not sure.

Quite impressive for the Hoosiers.  Will be interesting to see how they fare in the B1G Tourney.  I heard they only play 7 and without any time between games like in the reg. season, it's a good chance that would affect them if they advance.  Could certainly play spoiler, though, if they win their first game.

 Yeah with Buss playing almost 40 and Cahill at around 37 minutes i think.

Thats tough to go 0-16, Rutgers needs to find some kids that can shoot, and not play street ball all of the time.Man did Michigan fall flat on their face but will still get in the tourney though.

huh........indiana had 23 turnovers, 18 of them were steals by minnesota. normally, not a good recipe for trying to pull a 'w' out at williams arena. minnesota had a bad shooting night. only second loss at williams this season. guess one could say minny still had that "big game hangover".

Tie breaker will be interesting. Iowa beat Ohio State and Minnesota beat Maryland. Both lost to Nebraska. If Ohio State and Maryland finish tied for first and Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota finish tied for second, calculation on seeds gets a little challenging 

 

glad and to see points scored against opponents is not used thus reducing desire to run up the score up
