As the best league in the country Big Ten needed to show up big this year. IU managed to avoid the upset to join Michigan, OSU and MSU in the Sweet Sixteen. In case you missed the significance that means that 4 of the top sixteen teams played in OUR conference. The Big East has 3 teams, ACC has 2, PAC 12 surprisingly has 2, Big 12 has 1 and SEC has 1 with 3 mid-majors. Illinois came very close to upsetting Miami and Minnesota cost Ben Howland his job at UCLA. The B1G needs to keep it going to the Elite 8, Final 4 all the way to the Title.
